Why do some fragrances seem to last much longer than others?

People with dry skin usually find their fragrance holding time shorter than those with oily skin because oily skin has more natural moisture to hold in the fragrance.

How can I make my scent last longer?

Apply your fragrance low on the body, as well as behind your ears and on your neck, so that the scent rises and you won't lose it as quickly. A light spray on the hair can last all day. Also, for long lasting fragrance spray at the ankles, it allows the fragrance to blossom up.

Why does fragrance contain alcohol?

Alcohol makes the fragrance emanate from your skin. Without alcohol, you would be the only person who knew you were wearing any fragrance at all.

How can I keep my fragrance from going bad?

Keep all fragrance in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to insure a longer shelf life.

What do fragrance notes refer to?

Fragrances are comprised of many different scents, these scents are called "notes."
Top notes are very light and last just a few minutes (5-10 minutes).
Middle notes become apparent in about 15 minutes after application. These can last up to an hour or more.
Bottom notes are the heavier ingredients. These last the longest, usually for several hours.

Why do fragrances smell differently on different people?

Body chemistry, diet and age affect fragrances on their skin. Also, fragrance consists of many essential oils. Certain essential oils have affinity to our skin, and they may be absorbed while other may not. This creates an imbalance on the skin and accounts for the difference.

Is it important to change fragrances according to the different seasons of the year?

Yes, since heat increases the intensity of a fragrance. A good guideline to follow is to wear lighter scents in the summer and stronger in the winter. Citrus scents are perfect for summer while orientals are better for winter.

Does perfume need special handling?

Fragrances should be kept away from excessive heat or cold, and to avoid evaporation, the cap must be tightly closed to maintain fragrance integrity. Also, do not expose the fragrance for any length of time to sun light.

How long can I keep my fragrance stored?

Heat can also destroy a fragrance so keep it from extreme temperatures. Fragrances usually last 3 years from the date they were manufactured.

Is it true that a person has his or her own individual "smell fingerprint"?

Yes. Each of us has our own unique odour identity which is the sum total of our heredity (genes), skin type (dry/oily/light/dark), hair colour, diet, whether or not we take medications, are under stress, the environment in which we live

Should fragrance be applied to clothes?

No, fragrances have been formulated to be applied to the skin. If applied to fabric, the fibres could change the character of the fragrance. The scent might also stain the fabric.

May fragrance be sprayed on the hair?

Only if the hair is freshly-shampooed. Oils and dirt which accumulate on the hair and scalp intensify fragrance and can distort it. Also, don`t spray fragrance on extremely dry or brittle hair.

MIDDLE NOTES  The middle notes are considered the heart of the fragrance. They last longer than the top notes and have a strong influence on the base notes to come. It is ofen a smooth combination of floral or fruit tones; sometimes infused with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or cardamom.

Tips to make your perfume last longer

• Perfume lasts longest when applied to the pulse points, so your wrists, navel, collarbone area, or even behind the knees, are good places when you come to wear it-not behind the ears though, as the alcohol dries too quickly there.

• Wear perfume after a shower or bath, when the skin is still slightly damp, the scent will last longer.

• Perfume is affected by air, heat, and light, so try to keep your bottle closed in a cool, dark place.

• Buy perfumes in small bottles as they tend to go stale.
