How To Make Your Valentine's Day Fragrance Last

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to perfume I want a long-term relationship, preferably with a scent that makes it through date night and lingers (in a sexy way) around in the morning.

Here are some easy ways to stay scent-sual this Valentine’s Day and give your favorite fragrance serious staying power:

Play Games With Your Perfume:

  • Behind your ears, in your cleavage, and on the inner elbows are also perfume “hot spots,” meaning your body heat will react with the fragrance so that it burns long and strong. 

  • Try misting freshly washed/styled strands with perfume. The scent may not last as long, but it smells light and fresh, putting a brand new spin on your favorite fragrance. This tip works best with eau de toilette or eau de parfum. Also, as a rule of thumb, be sure to mist from a distance – 8-10 inches away. (Personally, I like to twirl through the mist!)

No matter where you decide to spritz, a sweet smelling eau de parfum is guaranteed to make hearts melt. We’re fans of Ed Hardy Skulls & Roses for Women. The fun and funky skull-shaped bottle, reminiscent of Ed Hardy’s iconic tattoo art, is filled with notes of strawberry, violet, honeysuckle, daisy, even vanilla and caramel. (Now we know why the brand’s perfumier calls this one “dangerously addictive!”)

There’s still time for your significant other to grab the perfect gift, so drop a hint that you’d be heartbroken without Ed Hardy Skulls & Roses. It’s like the traditional gift of roses, but with a modern twist!

Get Your Scent To Stick Around:

  • If you spray directly on your wrists, don’t rub them together. You’ll disrupt the perfume’s natural evaporation process. Basically, you’ll “crush,” or alter, the way it smells. To make the most of your perfume, let it dry naturally. (It doesn’t take long!)

  • Hydrated skin holds scent much longer. If your skin is dry, apply moisturizer after showering, followed by your favorite perfume. The fragrance will bond with the humectants in the lotion and your scent will last longer.

  • Warm, wet places, like the bathroom, can cause a chemical reaction in perfume, leading it to smell less than stellar. Extend the shelf life and keep the quality of your perfume by storing it in the fridge. The cool temps will keep the top notes extra potent, making your scent last longer.

Remember, rich, base-note heavy fragrances tend to last longer. Ed Hardy Skulls & Roses for Men is infused with long-lasting ingredients, like amber, sandalwood, moss and musk. Combined with notes of spicy cardamom, violet, and geranium, think of the sexy, musky fragrance as a Valentine’s Day present to your beau and you!
