    Default Which moisturiser to extend fragrance life?

    I'm looking for a fragrance free moisturiser to use before application, I have tried unscented ones such as nivea but they still seem to have a chemical smell to them and they seem to dull the scent of my fragrances.

    If anyone can recommend a good moisturiser that helps to extend longevity and doesn't interfere with the actual scent I would greatly appreciate it!

    Oh and I live in the UK so preferably ones that are available over here

    Nivea works fine with me!
    Just wait till your skin is dry again (3 mins) before applying your edt.

    Gillette is also good imo!

    I use Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, it seems to do the job just fine. It's also unscented so it doesn't mess with the actual smell of the fragrance.

    Usually, anytime I use moisturizers I honestly did not notice any significant difference in increasing fragrance longevity between the regularly generic and the "niche equivalent", more expensive, bio, organic, limited edition, luxurious etc. brands of grooming, cosmetic, body care etc. products.

    But for now, in order to mention actual brands, I must say from what I know so far that the frequently, readily, effortlessly available moisturizers from Nivea, Neutrogena, Laboratoires Garnier, Baylis&Harding and others along these lines all did an excellent job in terms of extending fragrance life and were all quite scent-neutral.

    Aveeno Fragrance Free is good. Active ingredient is dimethicone which is also good for dry skin.

    Not 100% sure if it's available in the UK but I use A'kin Unscented Replenishing Body Moist by The Purist Company. Doesn't completely absorb or alter the fragrance like some moisturisers do. It's vegan and not tested on animals as well if that is a concern.

    One thing I want to point out is that the moisturizer also seems to make fragrances stronger projecting...when asking people which smells stronger, left hand with moisturizer + fragrance or right hand without moisturizer + same fragrance, the moisturized one people tell me smells stronger

    Do any of you have any recommendations for a non-greasy (if applicable) kind of lotion? The Aveeno I had (maybe daily moisurizing) seemed too greasy feeling for me, and I don't like that feeling on my hands.

    I started using a Lubriderm daily moisture kind and it has a greasy feeling as well, though probably less than the Aveeno.
