How to Apply Perfume: 10 Tricks to Make Fragrance Last Longer

I hate to break it to you, but you’re probably applying your perfume the wrong way. Yes, there is in fact a right and a wrong way to spritz on your fragrance. I mean, there’s a reason why your perfume scent lasts for, like, only two hours max before it starts to fade—and the solution is all in the application. But don’t freak, because you’re in good hands. I’m basically a fragrance pro—and after years of spraying, spritzing, and smelling perfumes, I’ve amassed quite a few tricks and hacks on how to apply perfume and make it genuinely last, so you can smell really, really good, 24/7. Ahead, 10 easy tips that’ll get you down the way.

  1. First, take a shower or bath and dry your skin

2. Apply an unscented body lotion and/or Vaseline first

3. First perfume, then clothes

4. Spray perfume on your pulse points

5. Spray but don’t rub

6. Don’t overdo it

7. Spritz, don’t mist

8. Comb it in your hair

9. Spray perfume on your clothes

10. Change your perfume regularly

Even if you apply all these tips, you can’t expect every perfume, even the best quality perfume, to last a whole day. Particularly fresher perfumes, with citrus or green notes, will probably not last all day, but about 4 to 6 hours. It’s good to always carry your perfume with you so you can reapply it in the course of the day.
