Gloria Muturi gives the secret to making your perfume last longer.
“Make sure your skin is moisturised before you apply your fragrances as oilier skin will retain the fragrance for longer and the secret is to use incented lotion. The secret is, don’t rub your wrists together after spraying perfume, it destroys the perfume molecules.”
