Perfume Guide to making your Fragrance Last

1. Often the best way to make your fragrance or perfume last is to layer the scent. So begin in the shower or bath using a your designer fragrance bath and shower gel or soap. Next use a fragranced body cream, or for a lighter affect a perfumed body lotion massaged gently into the skin. After the fragranced body products have been absorbed into the skin, sprtiz the perfume strength all over the body.

2. Many fine fragrance experts and perfume connoisseurs recommend spraying an EDT, EDP or dabbing a Perfume onto the pulse points. These include the wrists, behind the ears, neck , behind the elbow and backs of the knees.

3. The ultimate Perfume Guide tip to making your fine fragrance or perfume last a long time is to spray your fragrance onto your hairbrush and running the fragranced brush through your hair. This is because the hair is more porous than the skin and absorbs the perfume quickly and effectively.

4. Another means of making a fragrance last is to scent your clothes, as well as your bed linens.

5. Many designer perfume houses advise that you spray the fragrance of perfume into the air a few inches in front of you, then step into the perfumed mist you have created for a subtle effect.

This is the extract or extrait of a fragrance and represents the scent in its purest form. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance.
Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance.
Eau de Toilette or EDT is fast becoming the most common means of wearing a fragrance or perfume. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application.
Eau de Cologne’s or EDC’s were first popularised by Napoleon. These fragrances are often constructed in a different manner to the traditional French Model and are formulated in one single burst. As a result of this process, EDC’s or Eau de Colognes last the least amount of time on the skin and can dissolve within a couple of hours. EDC’s should be worn as a invigorating spray.
