Are you tired of your favourite fragrances not lasting long? We all have that fragrance that just doesn’t last long, or can’t be smelt unless you put your skin right up to someone’s nose – and it’s usually fragrances like YSL De L’homme that just smell so damn good. Don’t worry, as The Cologne Guy, I’ve got you covered with some simple tips and tricks to give your weak fragrances a power boost!
Simple, but most effective. Just use more sprays! If you have a fragrance that you just love and aren’t afraid of going ham with the atomizer, then just spray more than you usually do. Some fragrances like Prada L’homme or Mugler Cologne which are as inoffensive as you can get are perfectly safe to overspray as they won’t cloy or annoy (most) people, so go to town.
Just be wary that as you spray more you will use more fragrance, so be prepared to watch that juice inside the bottle dwindle quicker, and get your wallet ready at the hip if it’s a fragrance you need to replace.
Vaseline on top of the skin
Using Vaseline as a fragrance enhancer is a technique that has been used for many years. It is particularly useful for those who have dry or sensitive skin, as Vaseline helps to moisturise and protect the skin while also holding the fragrance in place.
Additionally, Vaseline can help to prevent the fragrance from reacting with any other products that you may have applied to your skin, such as lotions or oils. This is because Vaseline creates a barrier that stops the fragrance from being absorbed into the skin too quickly. It works as a catalyst that lets the fragrance roam for longer, as well as give it some oomph.
Spray on your clothes
Fragrance application on clothing is a great way to prolong the scent’s longevity and performance. Not only does it create a barrier that helps retain the fragrance, but it also diffuses the scent in a wider area, creating a more noticeable and alluring effect.
To apply your fragrance to your clothes, focus on areas where the fabric won’t come in contact with your skin, such as your shirt collar or the inside of your coat. Be mindful, though, that scents can linger on clothes for days, if not weeks, and that applying a different fragrance to the same garment may result in an unpleasant clash of scent notes. So, if you plan on wearing the same clothes again, make sure to either wash them or apply the same fragrance each time.
By applying your fragrance on both skin and clothes, you’ll create a multi-layered effect that will not only make the scent last longer but also leave a lasting impression on those around you.
