Have you ever walked by someone and a lovely scent filled the air? That great smell that stays even when they leave? This is called sillage.

What Makes a Perfume Have Great Sillage and Longevity?

Before we dive into the list, let’s understand what makes a perfume last long and spread its smell. Ingredients are important. Natural oils from plants often stay longer than man-made smells. Concentration of the perfume also matters. More perfume oil means stronger and longer-lasting scent. Finally, how you wear it also plays a part. Applying perfume to your skin’s hot spots can make it last longer.
