Apply your perfume correctly
To make your perfume last longer, you have to follow several rules:
- Don’t rub your perfume. Rubbing a fragrance breaks down its molecules, diminishing the scent into the air.
- Apply some Vaseline and then your perfume to pulse points (as seen in the picture).
- To make your belongings smell good, apply some perfume to a cotton pad and put it in your pocket or bag.
