Do you wear perfume, cologne, or after shave? I wear perfume or cologne every single day except when exercising. I learned a little trick years ago about keeping them fresh and lasting longer. Put them in the refrigerator! To me, keeping perfume in the refrigerator isn’t convenient, but I do put all my good ones in the refrigerator when we leave for Florida and when we return to Connecticut. My favorites are those made by Bond No. 9 New York City. I love Madison Avenue, New York Nights, and Riverside Drive. I also love Courtesan by Worth. Do you use scented products and lotions?

I tend to use cologne every working day and if we're going out in the evening at weekend. I did know that exposing perfumes and cologne to light can diminish their effectiveness but I've never heard the refrigerator tip. Glad you don't use it when exercising. There's nothing worse than coming up for air in a swimming pool and getting a lung full of perfume from some heavily scented passing swimmer.

@DianneN A friend from church got me some great hand soap scents from Bath and Body Works - Frosted Coconut Snowball. Love the scent on my hands. Limoncello, can't wait to try that one and Winter Candy Apple. Sounds delicious. I can't tell you the fragrances I have for perfume.
I have 2 bottles sitting on my dresser... haven't touches them in years! One is a warm spicy scent which I should get out seeing that today is nasty... the other is a more flowery scent. I will think of the name in a minute but I'm drawing a blank right now!! Same company but can't think of the name!

@Aquitaine24 I have so many perfumes. Many I bought years ago at the Dollar store. Many others I was given as a gift. I just don't think they are anything worth worrying about making last anymore. If I had some really nice kinds like Diane wears then I would be using this advice for sure.
