How Can I Make My Perfume Last?

A fragrance expert shares tips on how to make your perfume last longer.

Q. My perfume fades by lunchtime. Any tricks for making it last all day?

A. Spritz on fragrance immediately after showering. "Perfume absorbs better on damp skin," says Jan Moran, fragrance expert for Perfumania. And scent your hair -- it holds on to aroma molecules even better than skin does. Shampoo with your perfume's matching shower gel, then use an unscented conditioner.
