There are some factors that contribute to how long your perfume will last. Your own personal physical makeup will have something to do with how long a scent lingers. For instance, the condition of your skin helps to determine what type of impact the perfume will have and, therefore, how long it will last. People with oily skin generally notice that the perfume scent lasts longer than those who have dry skin. It is estimated that on people with normal skin the scent of a concentrated perfume will last approximately seven hours, while the lighter perfumes will last about half that time. The reason the scent lasts longer with those who have normal to oily skin is because their skin has a higher degree of moisture which helps to hold the fragrance longer.
Some of the other factors that contribute to how long your perfume will last are things like what you eat, the medications you take, your stress level, and even your hormones.
There are still a few tricks that can be used to extend the fragrance of your perfume longer. The best way is to layer the scent with different products. Using a complimentary line of products, begin with your morning shower using soap, then apply body lotion, and last apply the perfume. There are some scents that also have talc or dusting powder, so you will want to apply this all over your body before getting dressed.
If your favorite perfume doesn't have a complimentary line of products, then use unscented soap and body lotion. You can use soaps and lotions with different scents, just be sure that they compliment the fragrance that you are using.
When it comes time to actually apply your perfume there are a couple of things that you will want to do.
The quality of the perfume also has a lot to do with how long it will last. So, you will want to choose quality over quantity.
