IN BLOOM, HOW TO MAKE YOUR PERFUME LAST LONGER
Floral perfumes are my absolute favorite! I love to wear them all year long, but during the spring it’s my absolute favorite! Although many floral scents are created in a lab it’s hard to get the true essence of the actual flower but, I am sharing tips to help you find the perfect floral scent for your personal taste as well as how to make the scent last a little longer! Here are 5 flowers to look for when choosing your floral scent this spring:
Rose–Rose is one of the most common floral notes used in perfume. It easily blends with other scents, but never loses its lightly sweet fragrance. Try Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb La Vie En Rose
Yang Ylang— Ylang Ylang is one of the most delicate floral scents, and adds a soft sweetness to perfume. Try Magic Dancing Roses Eau de Parfum exclusively at Saks.
Jasmine— It’s rich, sensuous scent smells just as good on its own, or paired with other florals, and even earthier notes. Pairs well with Rose. Try Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir Eau De Parfum Spray
Marigold–Not be as common as other floral scents, as its muskier and a bit more pungent than other blooms, but when combined with less obtrusive scents, it shines. Try Ralph Lauren Romance Eau de Parfum
Tuberose— Its scent is complex, with dewy, creamy notes that linger long after other fragrances. Try Gucci Flora Gracious Tuberose
How to make your perfume last:
- Dab Vaseline on your pulse points (your wrist, inside your elbow, on your neck, behind you knee) before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. Vaseline is occlusive and will hold the fragrance to your skin longer than if you were to spray it onto dry skin.
- Spray your perfume right after taking a shower and before getting dressed. The moisture on your skin will help lock in the scent.
- Again, Target pulse points and warm areas on your body when spraying perfume. The warm areas will diffuse the scent across your entire body.
- Try an unscented lotion before your fragrance. Oily complexions retain fragrances longer, so if you have dry skin, use a moisturizer first to help lock in the scent. ALSO, if your scent of choice comes with a lotion, use it to layer your scent for longevity.
