How to spritz your cologne like a pro:
- Spray it on your pulse points – inside of your wrists, inner elbows, behind your knees and ear lobes, and below your belly button. Pulse points are warm spots on the body that radiate extra body heat. This helps in diffusing the scent better and longer.
- Don’t rub the perfume onto your skin. You might have seen women around you spritzing the cologne on their wrists and rubbing it. This just fades away the top notes of the scent and makes it evaporate faster.
- Don’t directly spray the perfume on your clothes. Instead, spritz and then walk into it and back out. This evenly distributes the scent on your clothes, doesn’t ruin them, and makes your expensive perfume last well.
