Fragrance lasts longer on some people than on others because of differences in our skin (oily or dry) and in our PH levels. To achieve a longer effect, try layering your fragrance. Using the fragrance bath gel, (if the company offers one), then the moisturizer or powder, and then the Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum or Eau de Cologne, will usually have a longer lasting effect.

Also, 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.

Here are the tips in summarry:

# Splash weaker concentrates such as Eau de Toilette (EDT) on cooler parts of the body for maximum effect.

# Some experts claim that perfume lasts longer when spritzed lightly onto damp skin. Try spraying it on after a shower.

# Wear it on your wrists, but don't rub it together or it will alter the smell.

# Apply to pulse points: wrists, navel, collarbone and even behind the knees or at the ankle.

# Layering perfume is the ideal was to make the fragrance last longer. Start by using the bath foam and soap, then the body lotion and finish with the fragrance itself.

# Behind the ears is the worst place for fragrance. There are no sebaceous glands there, so the alcohol will dry and age the skin.
