Choosing the Right Cologne
While choosing the right cologne may not be a science, your body chemistry does play a key role in whether or not the scent is right for you. It is important to spray on a cologne that appeals to you and then let it work with the natural oils of your skin. The scent may alter as the cologne tends to evaporate throughout the day releasing the top, mid, and base notes. You will want to select the cologne that compliments you and that will last and linger as long as you need it to. Cologne is unique and has its own distinct fragrance thus, it should be carefully paired for the right occasions.
How to Apply Cologne
The best time to apply cologne is right after you take a shower, your pores are open and will absorb the scent at a deeper level. Placement is also key, applying cologne to your pulse points will allow it to endure as long as possible as it blends better with the heat from your body. Make sure to spray your cologne 10-15 cm away from your body, otherwise, it may run liquidly on your skin. Avoid spraying cologne on your clothing, it won’t last as long and may leave an oily, undesirable stain. A little goes a long way, use it but don’t abuse of it.
