Store in a cool dry place

So the bathroom is not the ideal place to store your perfume bottle. Create a pretty perfume arrangement using a stylish tray and a vase with flowers in your bedroom.

Apply immediately after showering on moist skin

Scents last longer on moist skin, so do apply perfume after you take a shower or bath. Spray it on after drying off, before putting on clothes.

Spray your ankles

You probably know about spraying the nape of the neck, inside of elbows and cleavage but did you know that spraying the back of your knees or ankles makes sense because scent rises throughout the day.

Forget the old ritual spraying and rubbing

Don’t rub your wrists after spraying your perfume because it interrupts the fragrance’s true smell, as friction causes heat.

Create your perfume scented lotion

Pour just a little fragrance from your perfume bottle into unscented lotion.
Wear your lotion first

It doesn’t have to be your perfume’s lotion. You can just apply unscented moisturizer and then spray your pulse points to lock the scent in.
