Beauty hacks to make your fragrance last longer
Try Sunday Times beauty editor Nokubonga Thusi's expert tips
1) Layer your scent with a moisturiser
Oil holds fragrance efficiently - so layering fragrance on moisturised skin will ensure that your scent lasts longer. Apply a scented moisturiser in the same scent as your perfume to amp it up or opt for an unscented moisturiser if using different brands.
TRY: Chanel Chance Eau Vive Body Moisture, 200ml, R865.
2) Try a hair mist
Hair is more porous than skin so a light spritz of scented hair mist will have you walking in a veil of fragrance all day.
TRY: Jo Malone Star Magnolia Hair Mist Limited Edition, 50ml, R840.
3) Opt for a perfumed oil
It's hydrating and concentrated, so use a perfumed oil if you prefer a more subtle scent that lasts all day as it warms up on the skin's pulse points.
TRY: The Body Shop Spa of the World French Lavender Massage Oil, 170ml, R168.
