So does spraying close to your skin increase longevity?
Yes, because there is more of the juice on you.
Think about this:
If you spray perfume in an atomizer from a big distance, a lot of the juice will be spilled.
But if you keep the sprayer close to the atomizer, all will be in it.
Ahh, but it does affect the surface area that the scent affects. Over a larger area I have noticed that there are softer notes that blend better with my skin. If I concentrate it the smell will not be as nice to smell throughout the day.
I feel like you absorb more of the juice from a close range, therefore, will still be sweating it out hours later, thus greater longevity is achieved. When there is a mist the scent is covering more skin, but there is only a "thin layer" that can be worn off easily. I don't think it works for everyone but it is a theory. I like the medium spray distance. I have a distance for each bottle, as each spray mechanism functions differently.
It's personal. I get the same effect either way, in terms of longevity, but I like the smell better when I give it some distance.
