How to Choose & Apply Cologne: The Ultimate Fragrance

The significance of wearing a cologne is not a new idea. However, your whole attire lacks attractiveness and desirability without a few spritzes of a mind-blowing fragrance, which then softens into your skin and mingles with your natural body odor, creating a unique scent that exclusively belongs to you. By now, I might have given you anxiety, and you might be thinking choosing a perfume is a troubling task. That surely is! But ‘how to apply cologne’ is an equally important question. 

Respect your nose when deciding on a perfume. Your first instance of choosing a cologne should be what you like and what you don’t. I have seen many men being picky about their fragrance, which is a good thing, I must say. However, there is a catch here. What you smell immediately after spraying a cologne are top notes. These notes disappear only after 5-15 minutes. After which emerges the heart notes for about two to four hours, ultimately reaching to base notes that last for more than four to six hours. There is a high chance of you buying a cologne by liking the top notes, but as time goes by and the base notes reveal, you might end up hating it. To overthrow this problem, follow this simple step: keep in mind the notes’ hierarchy, spray a couple of spritzes. Give the fragrance time to develop. Fortunately, if you are at a mall or a mart, grab a coffee or maybe window shop here and there. Smell it again after some time and notice the difference. If you still like how the fragrance matured, buy it. 

But what if you are shopping online? That will be a blind buy. In that case, you need to have a little more understanding of the scent notes available in different perfumes. You can play safe with some classic names and brands, such as Aventus by Creed cologne. If not, learn about the olfactory notes of the perfume you are thinking of buying. You will discover different ingredients in top, middle and base notes. These notes will help you determine and have an idea of what the perfume smells like. 

Some online stores also sell sample packs, which can be of great help. So you can not only test the smell but also test the longevity and sillage of the cologne. 

Once you have chosen the fragrance, now comes how to apply cologne. 

  1. Wear your cologne right after taking a hot shower, once you are dry and clean. 
  2. Choose your pulse points to apply your cologne. Do not spray undirected; you will be wasting your cologne.
  3. Male fragrances are deep and intense. Spraying a lot of it can be overwhelming and will result in an unpleasant aroma. So, less is more.
  4. Avoid applying to clothes as they may wear off after some time. Instead, use it on your bare skin and watch it magically turns into a unique blended fragrance. 
  5. Your cologne might not last up to your 9hr work shift or a full-day picnic. Consider reapplying after few hours.
