The "5 Spray" Cologne Guide for Men

Every man has their own way of applying cologne. Maybe their father taught them how to when they first started shaving. Or they simply watched a character in a movie spray once onto each side of the neck, and that was that. 

If you search the internet on how to apply cologne for men, you will no doubt find close on a million results. But here at My Perfume Shop, we have given you the only guide you'll ever need on applying your daily cologne.

5 spray guide for applying cologne for men

Let's make it simple.

(2) TWO SPRAYS ON THE NECK

One spray on each side. This allows the Sillage to radiant around you.

(1) ONE SPRAY ON THE BACK OF THE NECK

This creates a trail of fragrance behind you. A sure way to turn heads when you're walking down the street, cruising through an open plan office, or muscling your way through a busy nightclub venue.

(2) TWO SPRAYS ON THE FRONT COLLAR

Again, one on each side should suffice. This presents the Sillage forward, and will help let the person in front of you know that you smell incredible.

And that's it. That's the essential way to apply cologne as a man. This routine is a simple one to follow if you're looking for a straightforward, efficient, and effective way to apply your signature fragrance. 

You may be asking, why shouldn't I apply to my wrists? Well, because that simply doesn't have much of an effect. And given the shift in behaviour to more frequent washing of hands, this would likely be a waste.
