I always layer my scents, I can't wear heavy perfume and layering lasts longer.  So I bubble bath, body wash, lotion then spray.
Becareful, one I did this with Satsuma from the Body Shop and I only used the wash and the lotion, it was so strong I had my friend in tears and a coughing fit.  We had to go out for a drink instead of watching a movie.

You know, i've always wondered the same thing and recently stumbled upon a solution to my problem.  Give Sephora's "Whipped Body Delight" lotion a try.  I'm sensitive to most perfumes also but I want to smell good.  I tried this stuff out and it had no negative effects on my skin.  Plus, I thought the smell faded within a few minutes, but everywhere I go now people comment on it.  I get lots of compliments and yet the perfumey smell is definitely not overwhelming to me or anyone else.


And, just as a sidenote, these people will have your stuff shipped to you in no time!  Good prices, too!


And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

You could buy an oil-based perfume and mix it either with baby oil or put a few drops into a bottle of unperfumed bodylotion. last very long and smells good Smiley

keep in mind that while wearing a fragrance day after day, you'll cease to smell it as much. don't do what little old ladies do and lather it on! the rest of us will still smell you even if you can't!

i keep myself limited to only four drops of perfume on my pulse points, which supposedly is the best place for scent.

You might like to try the soaps produced by Lush cosmetics. I use Bohemian Lemon soap and it smells gorgeous. After a while you might think the scent has worn off but then someone will compliment you on how nice you smell! I always feel so flattered and i especially like it when it's The Boy leaning in to steal a snippet of the scent! It really drives everyone crazy- i would like to think that it is down to my animal magnetism but truly it's the soap. The nice thing about Lush is that it uses natural ingredients and the cast majority of its products are suitable for vegans (near enough 99%).

The Honey Trap lip balm is extremely nice as well and it does exactly what it says on the tin *wink*

With any fragrance, applying a powder of the same fragrance or an unscented powder "locks" the fragrance into place and it will stay longer. Whoever it was that said "layering" works is right too. Body wash, lotion, fragrance, and powder should keep it on for a good long time.

This may be for sale on my etsy:

Solid or oil perfume lasts longer and wont hurt your skin, put it on your wrists and behind your ears.
this place suposedly has amazing stuff (and really cool names and descriptions) but I haven't tried it personally:
