Not long after I apply a fragrance,
I can't smell it. Do I need to reapply?
Fragrance will blend in with your body chemistry, which your nose will eventually tune out. While this may leave you to believe the scent is no longer present,
chances are those around you may still notice the scent upon passing. For this reason, it is important to wear fragrance in moderation. Wearing a lighter fragrance, or having dry skin,
may be another reason why you feel your fragrance isn’t lasting. Try fragrance layering to aid in scent longevity or use a roller ball for subtle touch ups.
What is fragrance layering?
Fragrance layering means using body products, like shower gels and lotions, scented the same as the fragrance you use. The more products you layer in the same scent,
the more you ensure the long-wear of your fragrance. Contrary to popular belief, fragrance layering will not intensify the strength of the scent, only how long-lasting it is.
Options for fragrance layering that brands may offer include body wash or shower gel, bubble bath, body lotion or cream, and bath powder. If you are unable to find the matching scent
to your favorite fragrance, consider using unscented body products to prevent the scents from competing or negating each other.
Why do perfumes and colognes smell differently on people?
Your body chemistry plays a big part in the overall finish of the fragrance. Oilier versus drier skin, warmer versus cooler skin, and your own natural scent are
all factors that can enhances or alter the how the fragrance wears from person to person.
What is the difference between Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum, and Cologne?
Eau de Toilette (EDT) ranges from 4-8% in concentration of fragrance oils and tend to be lighter in scent. Eau de Parfum (EDP) ranges from 8-15% concentration,
higher than the EDT, and tend to emphasize the bolder notes of the fragrance. Due to the different concentration of oils, it is common for a fragrance to vary in scent between the EDT
and EDP therefore, it is always recommended to test each one to find what’s best for you.
