Have you ever had someone walk by you and you have to gasp for clean air because you are overwhelmed by a stranger’s cologne? Don’t be that guy who walked by.
There are common questions among men on spraying their fragrances. Where should I spray it? How much should I use? Which are the best? Following this article will teach you how to smell nice all day without losing your scent.
Where Should I Spray It?
Location is very important when figuring out where you need to spray your cologne. The most popular places to spray it is on your pulse points: the areas where blood flow is closest to your skin and create the warmest parts of your body. These areas are well known as the neck, the wrist, and behind your ears. It’s important to put it on these spots because when the sprayed cologne comes into contact with warm skin, it will release the mix of your scent with the cologne more prominently making the smell unique to you.
Another popular way to put on cologne is in-between your chest and your shirt. This way the cologne is activated through movement and the scent will drift up through the neck of your shirt and the crooks of the arm.
Never EVER spray cologne to try to mask a sweaty smell. No one likes the mix of body odor with a strong scent, it just never works. Always use your cologne on fresh, clean skin after a shower for best results.
Bonus Tip: When spraying on your wrist, don’t rub it in-between the two as it will crush the molecules of the fragrances and releases it faster, making it last less.
How Much Should I Use?
Remember, don’t be that guy that walks past people and makes them hold their breathe until you’re twenty feet away. The number one rule should be this: don’t marinate yourself in your cologne. You should only use a few sprays on your pulse points and nothing more. If you’re using good quality cologne, it should be able to last all day.
Which Should I Buy?
When it comes to your fragrances that you use, it is important to choose quality over anything else. Everyone can tell a difference between a guy using Axe body spray and Bond No. 9.
