Some Tips to Smell Wonderful All Day Long (or All Night Long...)

1) Emanate from your tresses:
Try spraying your favorite perfume onto your hair brush, and then simply brush your hair. The perfume will stick to the natural oils on your scalp and in your hair, making the scent last long into the day or night and surrounding you with a waft of fragrance wherever you go.

2) Use Vaseline:
Take a small amount of Vaseline (petroleum jelly--any brand will do) and rub a small amount onto your wrists and behind your ears, or the back of your neck. Spray the frgrance on top of the vaseline. The fragrance will stick to your skin longer and also smell stronger because it is sitting on top of the vaseline instead of sinking into your skin. You could also use fragrance-free moisturizer if you prefer, but lotion will sink into the skin much faster than petroleum jelly by itself.

Did you know...
Women have traditionally applied perfume to the neck and inside of the wrists because these are places where blood vessels are very close to the surface of the skin. As blood pumps through the veins, these places generate more heat which releases the scent of the perfume.
