Cologne Dos & Dont's -Things men should know about fragrance part two

There are some things that you can do if you want your cologne to smell longer and better, but there are also things that you can do to make it the opposite way, which is something that you do not want, so here are some tips:

Cologne dos: Pair scents harmoniously

Wear a cologne that works with other scents harmoniously. Maybe your jacket has a certain smell, or maybe your hair product has a certain sort of smell. You do not want colliding scents in one ensemble, because it may be off.

Cologne dos: Moisturize before applying cologne

Always moisturize before spraying a cologne, because of that you should choose fragrance-free lotions, that will not impact the scent of the cologne.

Cologne dont’s: Do not use aftershave as a body cologne

It has a very specific purpose and alcohol or ethanol-based aftershaves are not up to date anymore, so go with something else. The aftershaves usually do not last very long and they are not well suited as a body cologne.

Cologne dont’s: Do not buy cologne for the great looking bottle

Most of the designers put a lot of effort in the marketing, as well as the bottle because they want to associate things with positive things in your life so you like the scent, but ultimately always go for what is in the bottle and try to disregard the rest.

Cologne dont’s: Do not save colognes for special occasions only

The essences inside the bottle can only be stabilized for about three years, after that they start to change, the aromatics change, and it is just not pleasant anymore. The 100 ml bottle may be tempting, but maybe you will just use 50 ml over three years, so go for that one.
