Perfume: waste not, want not
Have you ever gone to spray your signature scent only to discover that you’re due for a refill? While nothing will stop your scent from eventually running out (unless you don’t use it that is!), there are ways to make your perfume go the extra mile. Here’s how I get the best from my bottles:
- Make sure you store your perfume in a cool place, out of direct sunlight. Not only can the heat affect the way the perfume smells, but it can also dry up the liquid, leaving less perfume for you to spray!
- It might sound silly, but keep the bottle in a secure place and out of reach of children. The last thing you need is an expensive scent smashed all over the bathroom floor.
- Have a few scents on the go at one time, so you don’t tear through your favourite at a rate of knots. Plus, no one deserves to be caught in a perfume rut so switching it up will ensure you smell fresh at all times.
- Finally, you no doubt want to smell like your scent, but everyone else around you may not, so limit your sprays to two pumps. You won’t need any more to smell lovely and you won’t waste your perfume on being excessive.
These tips are sure to save you money at the perfume counter and keep you smelling beautiful, so go on, give them a go and see how much longer your fragrance lasts!
