Here’s how to make perfume last longer than ever
Everyone wants to know the secret behind smelling good no matter the day, occasion, or season, but the truth is, there aren’t any secrets—just a few smart tweaks to enhance your scent and make it linger all day. Here are all the best tips on how to make perfume last longer as well as the common mistakes we make when wearing, choosing, or storing scents, and how to fix them in a flash.
#1 MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE AND MOISTURIZE AGAIN
Between the Arctic winds outside and overcooked offices inside, dry skin is a common nuisance during the colder months. The temps take a nosedive, so do the body’s moisture levels. Perfumes do not like to hang out with dry skin, so you need to attract them with little incentives, like upping up the hydration.
Spraying the perfume after you shower works wonders in summer. In winter, pick the most hydrating body lotion or vaseline, and then spray the scent.
#2 AIM FOR YOUR PULSE POINTS
Areas like your wrists, neck or even the inner part of your elbow tend to be warmer than other parts of your body, which makes the scent more prominent.
#3 STORAGE MATTERS
If you leave your perfume in direct sunlight or someplace warm, some of the compounds in your perfume will dissolve early, leaving you with nothing but slightly fragrant alcohol water.
Make sure to keep your fragrances in a cool, dark area, ideally out of the bathroom. Light, heat, and fluctuations in temperature break down the fragrance, decreasing its lifespan. We recommend that you store them in the original box or the Scentbird atomizers after each use.
#4 MIST ONTO YOUR HAIR
Hair tends to hold fragrance really well, and if you find that your scent changes on contact with your skin, applying a light mist over your strands or misting it on your hairbrush before running it through your layers is another effective way to wear it.
#5 BUILD A FRAGRANT WARDROBE, LITERALLY
The real truth is that the eau de parfums are more concentrated than eau de toilettes, and as such, they can stain certain fabrics, which is why you are advised to never apply perfume on clothes. However, if you adopt a strategic application approach, the scented garments may be your true allies in the fight against the early-departed perfume molecules.
Apply the perfume on the edges of your coat’s lining and on the other pieces you wear where it won’t be visible.
Use an old thin scarf and apply the perfume on it generously. Let the scarf air dry and place it inside your favorite piece of clothing or accessory (the trick works even on hats).
#6 CONCENTRATION MATTERS AS WELL
When choosing the spritz of the day, we’d recommend a perfume oil or Eau de Parfum instead of eau de toilette, simply because the latter has the lowest concentration of perfume oils and it’s more prone to fade than the mentioned oils or EDP counterparts.

Composition No. 1 is a dreamy and decadent citrus scent with a deep, velvety texture. Top notes of Italian mandarin, Brazilian orange, and quince slowly drizzle down to a sumptuous heart of tuberose, heliotrope, jasmine, and Damask roses. A resplendently creamy sandalwood note in the base cradles the scent in its narcotically plush sweetness.

Bella Essence is a velvety soft, sweet perfume blended with refreshing grapefruit zest. Rose note is plush, zen, and inviting, but when the trio of patchouli, vanilla, and jasmine come together, it is like a black and white movie coming alive in technicolor.

This Anna Sui’s scent is an eau de toilette, but a real powerhouse, ideal for winter. Fantasia opens with sparkling notes of pomelo fruit and spicy pink pepper. The orchid floral heart wraps around a surprisingly decadent raspberry praline note. The perfume concludes with a touch of sensuality thanks to warm woody Himalayan cedarwood and cypress. Simply put, Fantasia is playful, magical, and addictive!
