As a result I've done a bit of research and experimentation and I've identified the following 7 tips to make my fragrances last longer!
|7 Tips How To Make Your Fragrance Last Longer|
Some parts of your body are better for spritzing than others if you want your fragrance to last longer. Your fragrance will last longer if spritzed onto your body's pulse points or onto warm areas of your body. This includes on the
- inside of your wrists
- on your neck
- inside your elbows &
- behind your knees.
❌ Do not rub your wrists together if you spritz your fragrance onto the inside of your wrists. Doing so will result in the fragrance wearing off quicker, especially the top notes!
- on your stomach &
- at the back of your neck, under your hair.
Tip 2: Skin Preparation is Key
To make your makeup last longer you use a primer. To make your fragrance last longer you can dab some Vaseline on to your skin where you plan to spritz the fragrance. This will hold the fragrance on your skin for longer.
Tip 3: Hair Holds Fragrances Well Too
Spray some fragrance onto your hairbrush and then brush your hair. This transfers the fragrance into your hair and you'll leave a lovely trail of fragrance behind you as your hair swishes whilst you move!
Tip 4: Type of Fragrance
Citrus fragrances evaporate off the body faster. Fragrances containing notes of patchouli, jasmine, tuberose, amber, sandalwood and vanilla last longer. Generally woody and oriental
fragrances have the best longevity.
Tip 5: Choose Your Fragrance Strength
Eau de parfums have the highest concentration of essential oils and thus their fragrance will last longer than the fragrance of a eau de toilette. An eau de cologne has an even lower concentration of fragrance oils.
If you want your fragrance to last longer choose eau de perfums.
Some of my favourite long lasting eau de parfums include the following. I have provided links to those of them that I have seen on special recently. Why buy for full price if you can find the same item on sale!

Tip 6: Store Wisely
Store your fragrances in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. Heat, light and humidity can break down some fragrance ingredients and lessen the fragrance's quality.
❌ Do not store your fragrances in a humid bathroom.
❌ Do not store your fragrances near a window.
❌ Do not store your fragrances near a heater.
Pretty as they look all out on display, fragrances are actually best kept in a cupboard if you want to ensure their longevity!
Tip 7: Reapply As Required
Sometimes unfortunately, despite all the above steps, your fragrance will not last as long as you'd like it to!
In these situations use a small easily refillable atomiser such as the Travalo Refillable Perfume Atomiser pictured below to reapply your favourite fragrance as required.
