Sometimes fragrances don’t seem to last, no matter how much you spritz. Here are five hacks to make sure they do…

MOISTURISE

Oily skin holds fragrance better than any other type, so if your skin is dry, apply an unscented body lotion before spraying.

STORAGE IS IMPORTANT

Don’t store fragrances in the bathroom – the heat, humidity and light will decrease their quality. Keep them in your bedroom instead, away from the window.

FRAGRANCE FIRST

You're probably used to spraying perfume just before you head out for the night, but you’re better doing it straight after showering and before getting dressed. The moisture on your skin will help keep the fragrance on lockdown.

DON’T RUB

Rubbing your wrists together after you spritz will make the top notes of your fragrance disappear prematurely, so stop doing it!

BEST TARGETS

Aim for a small number of warm areas and pulse points when spraying perfume. The heat from your neck, stomach and inside your elbows will diffuse the fragrance throughout the day, while scent applied to your legs will gradually rise.
