When applying cologne, it’s important to know where to spray it to get the best results. One of the biggest things to think about is pulse points, also consider where people are going to be able to smell it the most. Here are some common and affective areas where men typically apply cologne:
One of the most common areas to spray cologne is the neck. Apply a small amount to the front and back of your neck, as this area tends to generate heat and can help the fragrance project.
Another popular spot is the wrists. Spray a small amount on your inner wrists and then lightly dab them together. This allows the fragrance to be released as you move your hands throughout the day.
The chest area is a very suitable spot for cologne application. Spray once or twice on your chest, ensuring it’s not too close to your face.
If you have longer hair, you can lightly spray cologne onto your hair (preferably from a distance) for a more subtle diffusion of the scent. Be cautious not to overdo it, as the alcohol content in cologne can potentially dry out your hair.
Behind The Ears
Spraying cologne behind the ears can be effective because the fragrance is released subtly when you turn your head or someone gets close to you.
Inside The Elbows
This area is a pulse point, and like the wrists, it generates heat. Apply a small amount to the inside of your elbows to help the fragrance last longer.
Remember, the key is not to overdo it with the cologne. Start with a light application and gradually build up if needed. Also, consider the occasion and the strength of the fragrance, some scents may require less or more application to achieve the desired effect.
