Moisturized skin 'holds' scent better. If you have naturally oily skin, perfume will last longer on you. If your skin is drier, try applying unscented body lotion or a little vaseline on your arms, legs and pulse points before spraying the perfume. The perfume will adhere better to your skin and last all day. "
