One of the most common questions we are asked is how to make your fragrance last longer. We totally understand! We love our fragrances too, and want them to last all day long!
There are a few ways to get your favorite Skylar scent to last throughout the day. First things first, start your spritz off right. To give your fragrance longevity throughout the day, we recommend applying your fragrance after you’ve gotten out of the shower and moisturized before your skin is completely dry. Spraying onto warm, damp skin helps the scent adhere to your skin, locking it in for the day.
Next, liberally apply your fragrance to your body's pulse points- your chest (your heart is your largest pulse point!), your arms, your neck, and if you want to really make it last, behind your knees. The warmth of the shower will open your pores and allow the scent to really anchor onto your moisturized skin. To get the most out of your favorite Skylar scent, we recommend using an unscented or complementary lotion for moisturizing.
Finally, right before leaving the house, spritz (or roll) your scent on your fingers and run through your hair. Hair is a great scent carrier since it doesn’t produce body heat, which is what burns fragrance off the skin. Avoid spraying directly into your hair as that can be drying.
Even with the best application, perfumes won’t last all day. Plus, our products at Skylar do not contain phthalates, which are used by traditional perfume companies to make scents last longer. When you need a little touchup, our Travel Rollies are the PERFECT companion for throwing in your purse, allowing you to reapply throughout the day.
You can also use the rollies to take your favorite scent up a notch, by layering with a complementary Skylar scent. We love to keep two in our purse so we can mix it up and smell fabulous from day to night.
