Perfume is made up of various fragrance molecules that blend with your own personal scent when the perfume touches your skin. The molecules evaporate slowly over time and allow the perfume to be smelled on your skin – strongly at first, then weaker later on.
Perfume – whether it’s Signature Notes or another – is not designed to stay fragrant throughout the day. But there are a number of things you can do to ensure that your fragrance has more depth and lasts longer on the skin.
Signature Notes is basically the same fragrance that you find in the rest of Rudolph Care’s products. This means that you can layer and build long-lasting fragrance using Signature Notes along with other Rudolph Care products. Body Soap, Body Lotion and Body Oil carry the same fragrance composition, and when you build your fragrance by layers, it lasts much longer.
A good base
Another trick to give your fragrance staying power is to use it on well-moisturized skin. Do this by applying your fragrance right after your bath or shower, and for even better results, just after applying Body Lotion or Body Oil. The oils in both the lotion and body oil help to bind the fragrance molecules to the skin so they last longer. If you haven’t had a shower and don’t have time to apply lotion/oil, apply a thin layer of Lip Balm where you want your fragrance to go and it will bind to the fats in the Lip Balm.
Keep it warm
When you apply perfume to your pulse points, you are helping the fragrance to develop and disperse around you. So apply your fragrance on the throat, neck, wrist, behind the knees and also at the navel – it’s always warm there. Avoid rubbing your fragrance between your wrists – you risk overheating the fragrance molecules so that they develop differently than expected.
Put fragrance in your hair
Another way to keep your fragrance going all day is to spray it in your hair. Your scalp is warm and your hair diffuses the scent when your hair moves during the day. This way, you’ll be able to smell your favourite fragrance all day long.
Top up with a little more fragrance
If it’s a long day, even the most fragrance-optimizing preparations may not always work. So it may be necessary to top up with a little extra fragrance throughout the day. Use the layering-on-lip-balm trick or make it easier for yourself with the little rollerball bottle that glides lightly over the skin to make you smell amazing.
