Thread: Longevity?

    Default Longevity?

    Do you guys have any tips on how to increase longevity with fragrances? I have fairly dry skin so thats probably why they dont last very long. With Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey i've heard people say they get on average 10-15+ hours. I get about 6-8. I sprayed it on paper last night at about 10pm est and I can still smell it really well. However after about 5-6 hours on my skin I can hardly smell it all and it seems like it doesnt project at all.

    What are some tips to help increase longevity?

    Use scentless body lotion the minute before you apply your fragrance,
    should do the job, my skin is dry as a cracker too, and it worls for me!

    Anykind, as long as it not scented.
    Buy the cheapest one you can find,
    it's just as good for this purpose as
    say Biotherm or Lancôme..!

    I use unscented pure expeller-pressed (NO solvent extraction) coconut oil. I buy it online in big one gallon containers, but you can get it in quart size too. A little goes a long way.

    Whatever you use, be absolutely certain that it does not react chemically with your fumes.
