Everyone has little things they do to help enhance the perfume wearing experience.
Here's a couple things I've learned:
*Perfume oils smell different on everyone. This is because of skin chemistry, prescription medications, body type/skin type, hormones, etc. There are many variables that can alter the scent on the body.
*To help the longevity of those perfume oils that fade quickly, or that your skin seems to absorb readily try this: apply an unscented moisturizer before wearing your oils. Oftentimes, dry skin will eat up fragrances. People with oily skin tend to have great sillage!
*Hand blended perfumes purchased from me, or anyone else that hand blends to order need at least six months of maturation before the true profile of the scent can be appreciated. That's why that second or third sniff of a long forgotten pip is very different than you remember it.
*Perfume oils are highly concentrated! You could scent an 8oz bottle of unscented lotion or bath wash with a pip's amount of perfume oil! You can also add a pip's worth of perfume of 16oz of oil for a mildly scented massage oil.
Well, this is what I've learned so far. I'm very interested in learning your tricks and techniques for getting the most out of your oils!
