I’m a perfume expert – why you SHOULDN’T use Vaseline to make your scent last longer – it’ll make you smell worse

A PERFUME whizz has warned all beauty lovers against using Vaseline to make the scent last longer.

Almost nothing compares to the sheer frustration after finding a perfume you love but realising the scent is gone within ten minutes.


This is where multiple beauty gurus offered a cheap and allegedly effective solution – Vaseline.

According to these clips, all you need to do is apply a bit of the famous petroleum jelly on the areas you will then spritz with some perfume.

But although this trick is meant to make the scent last longer, one perfume expert took it to TikTok to share her thoughts.

And it's safe to say, she's not the biggest fan of the hack.

Instead, the whizz recommended other alternatives, such as applying unscented body lotion to clean and dry skin.

''You can also use scented body lotion if you're comfortable with layering or you can apply the scent as you will be wearing,'' Josephine added.

''Once the lotion is dry, apply your fragrance,'' she said whilst generously spritzing Moonlight in Heaven by Kilian.

''And there you have it – your fragrance will last all day.''

However, the clip left the internet divided, as some thought that Vaseline doesn't have a distinct scent.

''Idk [I don't know] what you get, but the Vaseline I have does not smell like that,'' commented one critic.

Another added: ''I live [love] your content but Vaseline does not smell like petroleum [sic]. It’s the wrong association. Not petrol.''

Someone else shared another solution and chuckled: ''Just buy an Arabic perfume and will stay for days [laughing emoji].''
