How To Get Perfume To Stay

Even though I have tried to wear perfume (Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.”), scents seem to fall off my skin, and I have basically given up on smelling nice. Perfume blog The Fragrance Fanatic just posted some tips for making your perfume or eau de toilette stay put, but the whole process seems a little too product- and time-intensive to incorporate into my morning routine.

  • Step 1: Wash yourself using soap or body wash scented with your favorite fragrance.
  • Step 2: Post-shower, moisturize using a body lotion of the same fragrance.
  • Step 3: Add perfume to your pulse points (wrists, crook of your arm, nape of your neck, hairline, ankle, and decolletage).
  • Recently, someone told me my hair smelled nice, so maybe instead of going through the trouble of using scented body washes and lotions, I’ll just spray the stuff on my head. [The Fragrance Fanatic]
