What affects a quality perfume’s longevity?
A perfume’s longevity first depends on the environment you wear it in, your unique body chemistry, as well as your skin type (scents tend to last longer on oiler complexions). Notes are also a factor: deeper base notes – amber, leather, vanilla, etc. – last for a long time. In contrast, a fresh citrusy summer cologne with bright top notes is going to disappear pretty quickly. Another important component is concentration. For instance, a more concentrated blend, like an eau de parfum, tends to hang around longer than a less concentrated formulation like an eau de toilette and a cologne.
Getting the Most Out of Your Quality Fragrance
The key to making your fragrance last is to apply it to pulse points. These are areas of the body where blood vessels are close to the skin’s surface and where body heat will help diffuse the fragrance. Common pulse points include the wrists, behind the ears, the dip of your collarbone, and in the crease of the elbow. Keep reapplying throughout the day to extend the scent.
When it comes to fragrance, layering is key to making it last. You can start your layering with a scented shower gel or body wash, followed by a matching lotion. These moisturizing agents act as emollients, allowing the perfume to last longer. With a bit of creativity and a sensitive nose, you can even go as far as to mix and match different high-quality Dossier perfumes and get something entirely new. See our product pages for more information on what scents work best together.
This last one is a little fun! Make your fragrance linger even longer by applying a little perfume to your hairbrush and softly running it through your hair. The reason this works is that perfume lasts longer on the hair than it does on the skin. Just be careful not to spritz directly on your hair since alcohol may damage it.
