You have probably read countless times all the tips out there on how to make your perfume scent last longer. But, perhaps, you’re still making this one teeny weeny mistake when applying your perfume, which in fact, could be the reason why no one can smell your lovely scent. What could that mistake be? Well, you’re simply not applying your perfume immediately after showering. Yup!

According to experts, the best time to apply your fav scent is immediately after showering. You might be wondering why not after you’re all dressed up and ready to head out…well, the moisture on your skin after showering gives your perfume something to hold on to. If you want to the scent to last even longer, apply some Vaseline on the area, before perfuming. It also helps to perfume on the pulse points such as on your wrists, insides of your elbow, nape of the neck, behind the ears and knee backs. Also, as Coco Chanel said, it also helps to apply perfume where you want to be kissed. *wink*

So, ladies and gents, next time you’re spritzing your favorite perfume, don’t do it on your clothes when you’re about to leave, but just after the shower. That way, it will last all day, and don’t worry if you can’t smell it. Others can!
