– MAURICE ROUCEL
To really bind that scent to your skin, apply a small amount of a petroleum jelly such as Vaseline to your pulse points before you apply perfume!
It may feel natural to want to rub in the fragrance or dry it by rubbing it in, but the reality is that all this is doing is breaking up the molecules and helping the top notes to evaporate quicker.
Many mainstream brands produce matching hair mists as one of the final steps in the perfume layering process. These mists are specifically developed without alcohol, and can be sprayed directly on to the hair without causing damage.
Some perfume can last up to 10 years, but once it starts to change colour and begins to smell slightly rancid, it won’t last very long on the skin anyway.
