Everyone wants to smell good. People spend countless hours and dollars on finding their signature scent, but alas half way through the day it has faded. Then there are some people who walk into a room and fill the room with their distinct scent. Personally for me, this was always a goal of mine. I have taken the time to do some research on lasting scents so you can always smell good now starting now!
Start With Picking Your Scent
This might be the hardest part. There are multiple scents to choose from, built of different herbs, flowers, and spices. I recommend going to your local department store with an extended beauty department. Pick up samples, then pick your favorite scent. Take home at least 3 samples and ask your loved ones and trusted friends their opinions before settling on a scent.
Know Your Scent
Once you have chosen your favorite perfume, make sure to get to know the perfume. Check to make sure if you are buying a “parfum” or “toillette” – because there is a big difference. Parfum is much more concentrated and will last longer, while a toillette is meant to be used as a skin refresher. Beyond knowing the type of perfume you are buying, find the key notes. Find what it is about the perfume you love, and stick with it – whether it be rose, vanilla, sandalwood, or whatever else key note you are attracted to.
Pick a Body Wash with Similar Ingredients
Making fragrance last all day is all about layering. So once you have gotten to know your favorite perfume, invest some time into finding a body wash with similar ingredients. This will create a great foundation for your perfume to last all day, and will create a harmonious relationship between your products.
