Tips for Applying Cologne
When you have that new bottle of cologne in your hand, the last thing you want is to over do it. Follow these tips and you’ll smell your best every time you leave the house:
- Spray once to twice max on your neck, wrists, or chest. Since these areas have pulses, they will actually help bring more of the colognes notes out to enjoy.
- Don’t spray into the air and walk into it. This will get cologne onto your face, eyes, hair and places you generally don’t want it. As well, you end up just losing a lot of the scent.
- Have a couple of colognes to choose from. Versatility is fun when it comes to the scents you wear. Perhaps you’ll have one for work and one you can wear on nights out.
- Do your best not to rub the cologne where ever you apply it. This will make it lose its strength and longevity.
