HOW TO MAKE YOUR PERFUME ALL DAY AS A MAN

Smelling good isn’t exclusive to a gender, but men seem to find it hardest to make it work. For one, there is the misconception of emasculation. But the greatest men in history put effort to smell good. History bears witness to how important and costly fragrance used to be. Nowadays, you have perfumes all around you.
One little problem. Most men have to apply and reapply their perfume three or four times daily. Easy, tiger! Unless you want to carry those heavy jars of sweetness everywhere, you might need to rethink that strategy. Let’s show you how to get the most of a spray. So, what can you do to make it last longer? Let’s find out.

Apply On Your Bare Skin

There are many ways to apply your perfume, but the most recommended way is straight on your bare skin. And this recommendation isn’t random either. You see, your body has its own natural smell and produces its own oil.
Applying perfume straight on your skin will allow it seep into your pores and interact with your natural oil. This is why it is recommended to apply your perfume immediately after bath.

But Not Just Randomly

Yes, it is recommended that you should apply to your skin. But you take this recommendation and go to town, there is a method to the madness. You see, perfumes react to heat, and this is how they effectively unlock their potential. That is why we apply perfumes to pulse points.
Examples of pulse points are the nape of your neck, inside of your wrist, your armpit, and so on. Also you can spray one or twice on your brush and brush through your hair. Getting some on your clothes work too.

Match With Other Products

When it comes to smelling nice, don’t let your perfume be your only option. Things from the fragrance of your soap to the fragrance of your lotion can help complement the smell of your body. If you use an unscented lotion, you can add what is left of your old perfume into it.
Also, remember to take care of your dental health to prevent things like mouth odour. Look at the smell from your body holistically and you’re set to be smelling fresh all day long.

Look Out For Concentration

Perfumes come in different eaus, and these come in different concentration. Let me explain. Usually what you buy is a mixture of the perfume oil and a carrying agent. Usually, the carrying agent is alcohol. The concentration of the perfume oil will determine how long it will last. Here is a simple guide.
  • Eau de Fraiche (EDF), with 1 to 2% concentration, usually lasts for 2-4 hours.
  • Eau de Cologne (EDC), with 2 to 5% concentration, usually lasts for 4-6 hours.
  • Eau de Toilette (EDT), with 5 to 15% concentration, usually lasts for 6-10 hours.
  • Eau de Parfum (EDP), with 15 to 20% concentration, usually lasts for 8-12 hours.
  • Eau de Parfum (EDP), with 15 to 20% concentration, usually lasts for 8-12 hours.
  • Perfume (Parfum), with 20 to 30% concentration, usually lasts for over 12 hours.
Of course, prices will vary depending on concentration, brand, and quality. So, take this into consideration.

Store Correctly

One of the biggest mistakes when storing your perfume is to store it in the sun or close to a window facing the sun. in fact, the clearer the container, the more negative effect the sun would have on the content. For your perfume to remain at its top condition, you need to store it in a cool, dry place.
Always return it into its cover if possible. For added points, keeping it in your wardrobe may help spread the smell among your clothes.
Smelling good doesn’t take too much if you follow the guidelines above. You can literally tantalize everyone’s senses from dawn till dusk. You just have to hit the right note. Let your fragrance speak before you.
