I’ve decided to wear Bvlgari’s Jasmin Noir on my wedding day. Out of my 3 favorite fragrances, that is FI’s favorite. It is feminine and sultry.
Now- I reallly want the aroma to last a long time. Should I just bring a teeny spray bottle of it in my purse and have my Maid/Matron of Honor spray me every few hours, lol? Or should I spring for the body lotion as well. Does that really help the scent last?

I think you should just bring the tiny spray bottle. Scent on lotion also wears off after a few hours.

I agree with the spray bottle. Depending on what kind of flowers you have, though, they might overpower your perfume anyway. I had lillies and except for dinner, they were all I could smell all day.

I didn’t even think of that! We are having roses, orchids, amaryllus, white lilacs, wax flower and…I think thats it.
I just feel like the aroma from perfume wears off of my skin so quickly, it’s annoying.

I kinda disagree….
I know people hold scents differently but I find that perfume doesnt last very long on me but body lotion does so I always splurge on the lotion….
But I guess it depends on your skin and your budget. 🙂

I can afford it, but I didn’t want to get it unless it was necessary…and didn’t want to get it if it wouldn’t really help.
Maybe ill wear the perfume one Sunday in the house from the afternoon and see how long it lasts with a few occasional sprits during the day.
I know this is a super frivolous thing, but I always love coming across women who leave a trail of a gorgeous scent as they walk by…I want to have that too!

Lotion stays with me longer, too.

Lotion lasts a lot longer on me. I’m not sure how your body holds it, though. If anything, just keep the small spray bottle with you throughout the day. As long as you have it nearby to spray on whenever it’s wearing off, you should be good =]

Haha, same here!
Since everyone’s different, hard to say. The trial sounds like a good idea. Ask your Fiance for his assessment after a couple hours. 🙂

Just make sure you’re not spraying it as soon as you can’t smell it anymore–other people will. The nose gets used to the smell very quickly, so you might think it’s worn off when it hasn’t.

I wore a light scent with lotion and the perfume, b/c I think layering builds the scent and lasts longer. But, my main concern was not being overpowering while I was hugging everybody, so I thought lotion was a soft way to stay smelling good.

Thanks guys for the tips! Im going to experiment next weekend and see how the perfume by itself works in a span of 8 hrs.
Yay, I’m not alone! 😉

It depends on your body chemistry and *everyone* is different. For some people, layering the scent with shower gel, lotion and body spray works best to make the scent last longer. For others, that doesn’t do anything to make it last longer. Only you know what works best for you.
