Perfume doesn`t last long on people with dry skin. It`s the oil in our skins that holds on to the fragrance. The natural moisture in our skin will help the fragrance linger on for longer hours.
It is the alcohol in perfume that makes the scent emerge and make its presence felt. If there was no alcohol in perfume, no would know you`re using it.
Perfume can last longer if you preserve it in a cool, dry area. It is important that you store it away from sunlight or heat. Keeping the bottle in its box will help retain the fragrance longer.
The acidity levels in your body will determine how the fragrance will sit on you. The same perfume will react differently on different people. Your biochemistry determines how good or bad the perfume will smell when you use it.
The difference between cologne and a perfume is the amount of oils used in the scent. Perfumes have a higher concentration of oils. They will last longer. Colognes have lower levels of concentrated oils. The scent, therefore, will not last as long as that of a perfume.
Shower gels can hold a fair amount of fragrances too. Some perfumes come along with bath gels. This helps layer the fragrance and help it last longer. People with dry skin would be better off using a matching gel and perfume.
