Currently, perfume is an indispensable item when women go out on the street. Not only that, but the men also own at least some fragrances for themselves to use for working days, meeting partners, or going on dates with girlfriends. And most when using perfume, everyone wants that scent to stick well all day long on their body.
There have been many cases wondering: “I see her using this fragrance is very fragrant, but when I use it, it does not smell like that”. Or “What is the meaning of perfume that can be sprayed for 2-3 hours.”
Some of you also suspect that the perfume bottle that you buy is fake just because the fragrance is not good or its scent is slightly different from the bottle I used before.
In fact, to decide the flow of scent as well as how the scent in each perfume bottle depends on many factors. So do not because the perfume bottle is not fragrant, but hastily conclude that it is fake poor quality, but let’s find out some of the causes of that situation.
The natural disposition of the body
Each person will have a different location. Some people have oily skin, others have dry skin. Not to mention the body temperature, the moisture on the skin of each person is also different and this will also affect the retention of the perfume bottle that you use.
According to research, people with oily skin always smell longer than those with dry skin. Or those who sweat easily, the essential oils of the perfume are also harder to retain on your body.
Weather changes also affect the scent and retention of perfumes. In hot weather, the fragrance molecules dissolve easily, allowing the scent to spread stronger, but also more quickly. When it is cool the perfume molecules shrink, so the radiance is not far away, but the scent clings better.
So on the best hot days, you should limit spraying perfume directly on the skin. Because when sweating, the scent will evaporate more easily. Instead, you should spray a little on clothes, towels to keep the fragrance of perfume longer.
Your surroundings also more or less change the scent and adhesion of the perfume.
For those who are less active and work in an air-conditioned environment, the flow of incense will be better than those who work outdoors when the body is too active.
Methods of preservation
Most people use perfume incorrectly, such as or in places where the sun shines on or in the bathroom where the humidity is high. There are many people who have a handy way to stay in the trunk of the car every time you go to the street or buy away the perfume paper box.
That is also the reason why you feel the scent is no longer as fragrant as the old bottle used. So in order for the fragrance to be fully effective, you must remember to preserve them properly.
Perfume spray position
If you only spray 1-2 times, you cannot claim that the perfume stays on your skin for long. Depending on the situation, you can spray 6-8 shots in positions with many pulses such as wrists, elbows, nape, behind ears … to get the desired scent.
In addition to spraying areas where there are many pulses, you can also spray a little on clothes. This will help the scent stay on for longer.
Many of you, after spraying, often have a habit of rubbing their wrists together. That is not possible. When you do, you accidentally break the particles in the perfume, causing the scent to change. And don’t forget to moisturize before spraying perfume. And the best time for you to spray perfume is after bathing.
Now that the body is clean and the skin is moisturized enough, I guarantee the scent will follow you all day long. In addition, you can apply body cream before spraying perfume also brings remarkable effect.
Aroma group properties
Not all genuine fragrances keep the fragrance all day on the skin, but it also depends on the fragrance group you choose.
The groups of fresh smells such as citrus, flowers, and sea flavors will not stick as well as warm scent groups such as wood, musk, spices …
Therefore, before buying and using it, you should learn about the fragrance group of that perfume bottle to better understand its scent.
Don’t smell the scent
There are times when you don’t feel the scent of the spray after just a few hours.
To check whether the scent remains on you or not, ask some people around to see if they can feel anything. If people hear the smell on your body, it means your nose is smelly after using it for a while.
The percentage of essential oils in perfume
The higher the percentage of essential oils, the longer the aroma adhesion and vice versa. Parfum concentration contains the highest concentration of essential oils (20-40%), so the scent will last longer. Followed by the concentration of Eau De Parfum (15-20%), Eau De Toilette (5-15%) and Cologne (1-5%).
Due to psychology
There are many people who like that fragrance before deciding to use it. But I overheard a friend say, “This scent doesn’t smell good”. Then naturally my mentality is shaken and I think this smell is not as good as I thought.
Each person will experience a different scent. It’s the same scent that you will like, but there will be people who think it is not. That also depends on each person’s preferences.
As long as the scent is not too strong, it makes everyone around you far away from you and it gives a sense of comfort, self-confidence. Don’t judge that perfume bottle as fragrant. Just not suitable for some people only.
Above are some of the basic knowledge that I know when using perfume. Hope what I share helps you to understand more about perfume as well as know how to use the most effective perfume.
