Plus you will not always have the time to prepare in this way.
moreover...I don't know much about the difference between EDT, EDP or pure perfume extract smells, I assumed that they just vary in strength, rather than smell.
Aerandir4, you cannot automatically assume that because you buy a perfume concentration of a fragrance, that it is going to smell stronger
on your skin (dry skin or not).
Of course, the perfume companies (and sales associates) would want you to think so - since perfume concentrations are significantly more expensive. But I think you will learn, if you stick around here on Basenotes, that there are a bunch of scents where the Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum actually lasts longer, has more sillage, diffuses more and smells 'better' than the perfume version.
If you are looking for reasons why scents don't last long on your skin, the possibilities are abundant (skin type, climate, your nose, your age, your diet, general health, how many sprays you're applying, what kind of soap/deodorant you use....etc.)
Be patient learning the answers and more than likely you will find the solution that works best for you, your nose and your wallet.
