Even though the scent doesn't last too long (two to three hours, in our opinion), this K-beauty wins a few extra points for its adorable packaging.

Want some tips on how to layer your solid perfume so it lasts all day? Try this: 

  • If you don't have a matching scented lotion, opt for an unscented body lotion or oil. Moisturised or oily skin holds fragrance for much longer than dry skin does! If you have a body butter that complements the scent you're wearing, then apply that first and then go in with perfume. 
  • A spot that retains the scent of fragrances well? The tip of your ears! Yes, this part of your body is oilier than well...the back of your ears so don't skip it! 
  • Apply perfume as soon as you've stepped out of the shower and applied moisturiser (or oil). The moisture from your bath will lock in the scent. 
  • Never rub your wrists after applying perfume. This breaks down the scent faster than it normally would!
