NEVER, EVER MAKE THESE 3 PERFUME BLUNDERS.

Nothing breaks the heart like when you have to take an amount out of your income. Sometimes even higher than minimum wage to purchase your favorite designer perfume only to have the smell wear off at mid day☹️

Not only is this saddening, but it is tantamount to sprinkling petrol on your hard-earned naira notes and setting it ablaze.

While neither you nor your perfume sillage is to blame, you just probably might have been committing some perfume blunders without even knowing it.

Embrace your ignorance darlings and keep reading as we bring to your knowledge, 3 perfume mistakes you should never make if your scent must last and if you have been doing them, desist!

WHAT COMMON PERFUME MISTAKES DO PEOPLE MAKE?

IMPROPER STORAGE

Let’s put this to you straight. Storing your fragrances wrongly reduces their staying power.

How? You ask— The composition of the natural ingredients your perfume is made up of, is sensitive to changes in the environment.

While we aren’t oblivious of your desire to want to beautifully place your perfume bottles and canisters on your dressing table or even in your bathroom, where their view can be easily caught by the sights of all who step in, it is not a good idea.

These fragrance beauties are meant to be stored in a cool, dry, dark place away from the rays of the sun. This implies that your refrigerator is the best place to store them at 3-7 degrees Celsius according to wikipedia.org

This place is suitable for its ability to maintain stable temperature and humidity as opposed to if it were sitting idly on your dressing table. Alternatively, place them in the packaging box they originally came in and store them in a cool drawer.

APPLYING PERFUME ON DRY, NON MOISTURIZED SKIN

As inconsequential as this may seem if you have been applying your fragrances on your skin directly without moisturizing properly and wondering why the scent wears off fast. Well, you have your answers.

Applying your perfume to your dry skin can cause the scent to evaporate into the air sooner than it would normally— preventing it from smelling it best.

So, next time avoid this mistake by taking time to moisturize your body first or simply apply a little Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying.

Pro Tip: It is best to apply your perfume to your body other than your clothes.



NOT SPRAYING THE RIGHT POINTS

Take a Look at your microwave oven, washing machine, and even your television. They all come with manuals. Sadly, your perfume doesn’t. But graciously, D’scentsation as always is here to bail you out of puzzling perfume situations.

You might want to admit that each time you spray, you hold your perfume bottles near to your skin, then go “fuuuuuu fuuuuu” all over your skin not paying attention to strategic spots.

Sorry to burst your bubble, you have been spraying it wrongly and this could be the reason your perfume doesn't last on you or so we think.

One critical fact you may not be aware of is that heat aggravates the smell of fragrance.

When next you’re spraying, focus on the points that produce the most body heat. Like behind your earlobes, the inner part of your wrist ( DON'T RUB IT), behind your knee, under your jaw, your inner elbow, and do nothing afterward. Just let your skin absorb them.

No matter how tempted you are to spray directly into your hair, we do not recommend it. Rather spray into your comb or brush and brush your hair.

Final thought

Having known these blunders, we strongly suggest that you avoid them like plague. When you do, you help lengthen the staying strength of your perfumes, so it, in turn, herald your arrival and prolong your departure. Sounds incredible, yeah!
