How To Use Cologne 
  • If you are using the cologne after a long time or have just bought the bottle from the market, first ensure that it is spraying out the correct amount. In such a case, you might have to take a few pumps to get the cologne out of the bottle.
  • Now, you should spray one pump of cologne on either your left or right wrist.
  • Rub the wrists together, so that the cologne gets evenly spread on both of them.
  • Spray the cologne on your hands/fingers and wipe them behind the ears, on the chest and on the side of your neck (where you feel the pulse).
  • If your cologne bottle doesn't come with a spray top, put your finger over the top and turn the bottle upside down.
  • Thereafter, apply it on the inside of your wrists, behind the ears, on the chest and on the side of your neck. 
Some Tips 
  • It is always advisable to pat the cologne on the desired body parts. Do not rub, as rubbing would make the natural oils on your skin cover the cologne.
  • While spraying cologne, make sure to keep it away from your clothes. If you spray it onto the clothes, you might end up running them.
  • Whenever you buy cologne, spray a little from the tester onto the inside of your wrist. Wait for a few seconds before smelling it. If you like the fragrance, buy it.
  • Remember that the cologne should be enough to leave a lingering presence after you have passed a person. But, it should not be so powerful that a room starts reeking of it the moment you enter.
