Thrifty Thursdays: how to make your perfume last all day and night

Hey guys!

I know perfumes can be so expensive so here are a few tips to help you.

  1. Do not buy a perfume unless you’ve tried it out on your skin a few times – perfumes smell differently on different people so what might smell so amazing on someone else might not appear to have much of a scent on you or even worst – not smell as you expected it to.
  2. Ask for sample sizes of perfumes so you can try them out and don’t be shy about it, perfume sales people rarely ever say no.
  3. When you’re finally happy with the perfume you want ask someone to buy it from the airport as most perfumes are sold in duty free and they’re much cheaper.
  4. Only spray perfume on parts of your body where you have a pulse –  your wrist or neck, as these places hold the perfume the best (apparently).
  5. Before applying perfume, spread a little petroleum jelly (vaseline) on the area and don’t spray more than one spray. Having vaseline traps the perfume and keeps it there all day.
  6. Never pack your perfume with you on holiday – it’s heavy and delicate, and honestly, I don’t want mine to break in my suitcase and have to deal with that. Instead, when you’ve finished packing, spray 5-6 sprays onto your clothes and then shut the suitcase immediately. Whatever perfume you spray, it’ll smell like that but a bit muskier and to be honest, I love that.
  7. If you live in the US, try http://www.scentbird.com, a $15USD a month service where you can try different perfumes every month.

I hope you found this post useful. In case any of you were wondering, I swear by Narciso Rodriguez’s perfume.
