You spray your clothes and body and in a few hours, you can no longer perceive its scent on you. You wonder if it is because it is not expensive. Guess what, the efficacy of your perfume is not in the price but how and where you are applying your perfume.


Below are 10 tested tips and tricks to help your perfume last longer on your clothes and body when next you apply it.

1.Spray on your clothes

10 Trusted Tips That Will Make Your Perfume Last Longer On You


Don’t just stick to spraying perfume on your body, spritz it all over your clothes too. Clothing fibres are able to hold in scents for a very long time, yes, even after you wash it.

2. Spritz, don’t mist

You know how some people spray perfume into the air and then walk through it. When you do that you are just wasting product and the scent will evaporate after a short amount of time. A direct spritz on to bare skin is all you need to keep the perfume scent on you for longer.

3.Spray it on top of your ears

It sounds weird, but trust, it works. The oilier your skin is, the better it holds scent, and the top of your ears is a little bit oilier than say, behind your earlobes.

4. Don’t store your fragrances in your bathroom

Heat, light, and humidity will break down the perfume and lessen the quality and intensity of the fragrance. Instead, store your perfume bottles in a cool, dry place, in your room and away from windows.

5. Rub petroleum jelly on first

Rub petroleum jelly on your pulse points before spraying your perfume to make the scent last longer. The ointment holds the fragrance to your skin longer than if you were to spray it onto dry skin.

6. Apply an unscented lotion first

Use an unscented lotion before applying your perfume. As said earlier, oilier skin holds fragrances longer, so using an oil-based moisturizer first will help lock in the scent.

7.Spray your perfume right after taking a shower

The moisture on your skin will help lock in the scent. This will also prevent the fragrance from staining super delicate clothes (like your favourite silk blouse) or jewellery.

8. Don’t rub your wrists together

Don’t dab the fragrance on your wrists after spraying. If you rub your wrists together, you’ll force the scent to disappear faster than intended.

9.Target Pulse Points When Spraying Perfume


To make your scent last longer, choose a couple of pulse points. These are warm areas that’ll help diffuse the fragrance across your entire body. Spraying your ankles and calves allows the scent to rise throughout the day. Your pulse points on your body include:


  • Your wrists
  • Inside your elbows
  • On your neck
  • Below your midriff
  • Behind your knees

10.Spray the fragrance on your hairbrush

To make your hair smell nice, spray the fragrance on your brush before running it through your hair instead of directly on your hair. Spraying an alcohol-based fragrance directly on your hair will dry it out. By doing this, your hair will be lightly scented and undamaged.


Smelling good doesn’t only make you comfortable to work with but improves your esteem. Therefore, follow the tips above and see your perfume lasting longer than you even expect.
