Four Reasons For Early Evaporation Of Perfumes

July 2, 2021

Perfume is like the cherry on top of your attractive outfit. It makes your appearance more charming. It is not only a way to make your body perfumed, rather it freshens your mood and expresses your distinct personality.  

Everyone loves the fragrances. Some people love to wear premium fragrances, while others are satisfied with budget perfumes. All they want is to smell good and have long-lasting effects. 

However, you would have noticed that some perfumes last too early, absolutely opposite to your expectations. Have you ever wondered the reasons behind it? Well, this writing piece will help you learn why some perfumes evaporate faster than your expectations. So let us get into it!

Dry Skin 

Many people think that not applying enough fragrance to the body is the reason behind the early evaporation of perfumes, but that is not the case. Instead, it might be possible that the dryness of your skin is the culprit. 

When you have dry skin, your skin probably does not have the necessary oil that perfumes require to stay or absorb into your skin. Therefore, when you apply the perfume to your skin, you won’t experience long-lasting effects. 

Try applying unscented moisturizer on your skin before applying any perfume like Gucci and men’s cologne sampler or you can buy a perfume that perfectly fits your skin type. 


A fragrance concentration is the strength of your perfume. It indicates the volume of different compounds and how much they are concentrated on each other. 

The higher the concentration, the better it will smell and the longer it will last. For example, body sprays are much less concentrated than eau de toilette perfumes like Gucci by Gucci men’s cologne, so they evaporate faster than eau de toilette perfumes. All in all, the more alcohol in your perfume, the faster it will evaporate and lose its effects. 

So, when you buy perfume, make sure the liquid does not contain much alcohol and is concentrated enough to give you long-lasting effects. 


A perfume is mainly made up of three notes: top, heart, and base notes. These notes contain different molecules that develop and evaporate at different rates when applied to the skin. Top notes are strongest and evaporate faster than other notes. Heart notes come just before the complete evaporation of top notes. They last for a maximum of one hour. Then the base notes come to stay on your skin longer than the top and heart notes. 

The stronger the base notes, the longer your perfume will last. If your perfume does not have base notes or strong base notes, you can’t expect it to last for a longer time.

The Quality  

If you use branded perfumes like Calvin Klein women’s perfume and Gucci, you will never experience early evaporation problems with your perfumes. But with low-quality perfumes that often do not contain strong base notes, you will experience early evaporation problems. 

So, we strongly recommend you invest in high-quality premium perfumes. Although, they are a bit expensive, they give you the best value for your investment.
