Perfume that lasts a long time = our dream. And who wouldn’t want to smell their favourite scent for as long as possible? ‘Longevity of perfume varies from person to person,’ says fragrance expert Michael Edwards. ‘Usually, a perfume in its most concentrated form (eau de parfum) should last for six to eight hours.’ So here are our top long-lasting eau de parfums for you to rejoice over…
Thierry Mugler Angel for her
Thierry Mugler Angel may have launched back in 1992, but it’s still the hottest scent on the block. It oozes caramel, praline, honey, vanilla and exotic fruits, so you’ll smell as sweet as your fave dessert. The best bit? These strong notes, along with the fragrance’s long-lasting oil concentration, mean that it won’t fade any time soon – so for most of the day you’ll smell as good as you did when you first spritzed it. Whoop whoop!
