How many times have you been told that a scent is “lingering” and “long lasting perfumes”, only for it to disappear within an hour or two?
For me, as a perfume addict, it’s one of my main frustrations with fragrance. It seems that the fragrances I love tend to have very little staying power.
And I finally, fairly found the answer!
I’m sure you’ve heard the whole “layer your scent” thing, where you apply several body products with the same scent; where, I suppose the logic is that more scented products = more scents. But I personally find that a little too high maintenance for me (I’m sure it works, though), but there’s a quick tip that works just as well, and takes less effort:
For long lasting perfume, all you have to do is to apply a thin layer of Vaseline to your skin, and spray your perfume over it.
The heat and moisture from Vaseline “soaks” in more of the fragrance, allowing the scent to simmer on your skin for awhile instead of evaporating quickly, and therefore making the scent last much longer. I can fully endorse this tip, as I have tried it countless times already. Definitely try this trick out!
