Perfumes consist of three notes of fragrance: the top notes, middle notes, and base notes. The top note is the one that catches your attention immediately but this will wear away within minutes. Then the middle note develops around ten minutes post application and the base note at around fifteen minutes. It is these middle and base notes that will last for hours therefore it is vital that you allow a fragrance to develop fully on you before making a final decision.
The very best way to apply perfume of any kind is to dab it gently on to the skin, then allow to dry naturally to preserve the fragrance. By rubbing your wrists together you can crush the chemicals within the perfume, which will distort the scent and also cause it to wear off much more quickly. If you do opt for a spray bottle, then make sure you hold it at least 8 inches away from the area to be sprayed and avoid contact with your clothes or accessories as they may become stained.
Finally our last top tip to make your fragrance go the distance is to walk into a spritzed cloud of perfume for an all over blanket of scent, or perhaps spraying your hair with your favourite scent to help your fragrance last throughout the day.
