Don’t rub the fragrance in

How to make your perfume last longer in the bottle!
Don’t shake your perfume bottle.
This tip goes hand-in-hand with keeping the perfume in its original bottle. Shaking the perfume can also allow air to infuse the fragrance and shorten its lifespan. Don’t feel like your perfume has to remain still at all times, but you should under no circumstances shake the bottle.
Store your perfume in a cool, dark place.
Many people store their perfume in the bathroom which actually causes it to expire faster. The bathroom is a place that fluctuates in temperature and humidity often, which will cause the perfume’s temperature to fluctuate.
Buy the right strength of perfume.
Some perfumes will naturally last longer than others, both on the skin and in the bottle. Perfume and cologne are sold in different concentrations, meaning there are different ratios of fragrance oil to alcohol.
