layering techniques for fragrances with poor longevity

    layering techniques for fragrances with poor longevity

    post #1 of 12
    Thread Starter 

    i have chosen the following as my evening wear lineup:

    Serge Lutens Chergui

    Annick Goutal Eau D'Hadrien

    Montale Red Vetyver

    Creed Green Irish Tweed

    SL's longevity is outstanding so this question applies to the remaining three.

    What is the most effective technique/s for layering to extend longevity for another hour? (if possible)

    thank you in advance

    Use unscented moisturiser first, then spray, wait 15mins, then spray again... eh voila...

    From the ones you listed, except Eau d'Hadrien, all others have exceptional longevity.

    I use a citrus / pomegranate combo moisturizer from a local Canadian company - works really well in summer for all my citrus based scents. Or an unscented type for any fragrance will be useful...

    Yes that's right.

    As for moisturiser I use E45 hand cream... But not sure what's available locally for you... Any good qualitysupermarketunscented moisturiser should do.

    Accept the fact that some perfumes are short lived.

    Then use them for shorter errands or when you know you'll only want a perfume for a short period of time.
