How to make Perfume oils last longer

Written by: Chaitanya Nimmala.

Perfume oils have been used for centuries to enhance the personal scent and leave a lasting impression. However, many people find that their perfume oils tend to fade away quickly, leaving them searching for ways to prolong their fragrance. Fortunately, there are several strategies you can employ to make your perfume oils last longer. In this blog post, we will explore the key techniques and tips that will help you maximize the longevity of your perfume oils, allowing you to enjoy their captivating aromas throughout the day.

Agarwood or sandalwood oil is occasionally used as a foundation for perfume oils, which are scents produced from fragrant materials including flowers, wood, and resins. These scents can be extracted separately or a blend can be made by combining the essences of two or more different aromatic materials. There are numerous ways to extract fragrant compounds, including expression, solvent extraction, maceration, steam distillation, and enfleurage. The most common methods for extracting perfume nowadays are steam distillation and solvent extraction.

How to Apply Perfume Oil?

Understanding Perfume Oil

Before delving into the secrets of longevity, it's vital to comprehend the essence of perfume oil. Unlike alcohol-based fragrances, perfume oils are highly concentrated scents that deliver a more robust and long-lasting aroma. They are less drying and irritating to the skin, making them the go-to option for many. However, even with these concentrated gems, we often wonder: how can we make our perfume oil last longer?

Preparation is Key

The first step to ensuring your perfume oil lasts longer begins even before you apply the scent. Hydration is paramount. Moisturised skin holds fragrances better and for longer periods. Therefore, applying a fragrance-free lotion or an unscented oil right after your shower can significantly enhance the staying power of your perfume oil.

Pulse Points are Your Best Friends

Pulse points are areas on your body where your blood vessels are close to the skin's surface, thus being warmer and enhancing the scent of your perfume oil. These points include your wrists, behind your ears, the base of your throat, inside your elbows, and behind your knees. Applying your perfume oil to these areas can make it last significantly longer.

The Correct Application

Rubbing your wrists together after applying perfume oil is a common habit, but it's one that you should avoid. The friction created by rubbing heats up the skin, which produces natural enzymes that change the course of the scent, often causing it to fade faster. Instead, after applying your perfume oil, let it naturally dry or gently pat it on your skin.

Apply on Hair and Clothes

While perfume oils are primarily designed for the skin, they can also be applied to your hair and clothes. However, due to their oil base, be mindful of potential staining. Spritzing some on a brush and running it through your hair or lightly spraying your clothes can give the scent extra staying power.

Choosing Quality Products

Last but certainly not least, the quality of the perfume oil plays an essential role in its longevity. At Ajmal, we are committed to offering top-quality, beautifully crafted perfume oils designed to deliver a long-lasting scent experience. A superior quality perfume oil will not only smell divine but will also adhere to your skin better and last longer.
