How To Make Your Scent Last All Day
You might think the finishing touch to your outfits would be a handbag or accessories, but it's actually something you can't see in photographs.
It's usually the last thing you put on before you would head out the door, and it can make a world of a difference. Investing in scents could be really beneficial, let's face it, the power of a woman is all in the subtleties. While picking your perfect you perfect scent in hard enough, making the perfect scent last all day is an even bigger battle. So after trial and error and a lot of research, we've complied my tips and tricks into this post on how to make your scent last all day.
|1| The Vaseline - Moisture Factor
Apply a bit of Vaseline on your pressure points (wrist, under your ears, your neckline, inside of your elbows and behind your knees) before spraying perfume. Vaseline can lock in the scent to your skin, making your scent last longer than applying it to dry skin! The best part is that vaseline is such an ordinary everyday product, but it can make all the difference.
Unscented lotion works also!

|2| Pulse Points
As Coco Chanel would say:
"A woman should wear perfume wherever she wants to be kissed."
Aka, your pulse points! This includes the base of the throat, the inside of your wrists and below the earlobes. Apply scent to these points and you're ready for whatever comes your way during the day!

|3| Make Your Hair Flip Work Overtime
Your hair holds scents the longest, so after you spray your perfume on your pulse points spritz some in your hair as well (don't forget your clothes too!) But be careful not to overdo it.

|4| Start Off Steamy
Spray your perfume after you get out of a hot shower. Your pores will be open and the scent will soak into your skin and stick around longer!

|5| Give Your Perfume The Cold Shoulder
Perfume bottles are gorgeous, sure, but displaying them in the sunlight can break down the liquid. Heat, light, and humidity can lessen the quality of the fragrance. Store your perfume in a cold dark place away from humidity to give them a longer lifespan.
