How to Get More Out of Your Perfume

Three Easy Ways to Get More Out of Your Perfume

There are several things you can do to make your perfumes last longer on both the skin and in the bottle, but there also several things you can do to get more out of them. Perhaps you're overwhelmed with a large collection of scents you know you'll never finish, or you're looking for a few ideas on how to bring new life to your tried-and-true perfume. Whatever the case may be, check out these clever tips for getting more out of your scents below:

  • Sir Mix-a-Lot: Mix your favorite scent with a moisturizer and apply. Bonus: the moisturizer will help the scent stay with you longer.
  • Adios, odors: Make your own air freshener by diluting a few drops of perfume in water. Mix up in a water bottle and spritz away.
  • Scented sheets: To make your clothes smell nice, simply spray an unscented dryer sheet and toss into your dryer.

I wouldn't do the moisturiser one because I have rather dry skin and the alcohol in the perfume probably wouldn't help, but these ideas are ge-nius! Thanks!!

Something else you can do if you really like the scent and want it in a room spray or candle, is to find a local scent blender. In Chicago, there's a place called Aroma Workshops that lets you blend your own oils for a personal scent and they're willing to try and emulate scents for you, or take a scent as the inspiration and create something similar. It's a lot of fun to blend, and a way to get that scent you love everywhere without shilling out tons of money on a bottle of perfume every 6 months or so. I love it. I'd recommend checking whether your area has something similar (or you could do it yourself, but this requires lots of oils).
