How to Make Your Perfume Last Longer:
Have you ever wondered why the scent of your perfume seems to always disappear by lunchtime? The answer may lie in the perfume’s ingredients. Some notes, including citrus and water ones, are more volatile than others, causing them to evaporate from the skin more quickly.
It’s also important to understand the general breakdown of a fragrance and what the various notes mean regarding your perfume’s application. Here’s what you need to know:
Top Notes: The first scent you smell after spraying the perfume, which fades the fastest.
Middle/Heart Notes: The scent that develops after the top note fades.
Base Note: This is the heaviest scent that tends to linger the longest.
How and when you apply your fragrance may also have an impact on its longevity. To help get the most out of your scent, most perfumers agree that you should always spritz your fragrance directly onto the skin, rather than creating a mist and walking through it, to ensure that you’re not wasting any product. You should also always apply your perfume immediately after getting out of the shower (when your pores are the most open) and spritz it directly onto your body’s pulse points, including your wrists, neck, inner elbows, and behind your ears. The warmth of these areas will help activate the notes and diffuse the fragrance across your entire body.
Dior Miss Dior Rose n’ Roses marks the newest addition to the beloved Miss Dior Collection, offering a brighter reinterpretation of the classic fragrance while still remaining true to its original origins. At the heart of the new Dior fragrance lies a blend of Grasse and Damascus rose, which imbues it with its signature lovely floral scent, while juicy notes of mandarin, bergamot, and white musk heighten its lively, vibrant undertones. We like to think of it as the cooler, younger sister to your traditional old-school rose scent.
