Making your Perfume last Longer
If there's a thing in life, men deal with daily—it's the struggle of lasting longer than usual. In bed most times, but through other aspects too. Like making sure their perfume lasts through the day and smell great, come what may. Sounds daunting? Surprisingly, it isn't. Here's how...
1. First and foremost, know where to store them.
Your perfume/cologne bottles should be stored in dry areas. Not in damp or wet sections of your house, like the bathroom or a drying balcony. Make sure they're away from even heat, light and windows. Factors such as these affect the fragrance of your perfume!

2. Don't spray on dry skin.
Here's your key to stealing your girlfriend's Vaseline. Before spraying that manly cologne on your skin, rub some vaseline and then take the plunge. Its fragrance will last longer than usual!
3. Where should you spray?
Identify the warm and hot areas on your skin. Your chest, neck, the upper fold of the elbow, back of your knee and right behind your ear are the best areas to spray upon.

4. Spray from a certain distance.
To smell best all day, always use your spray bottle from a distance of 6 inches.

5. In general, follow this ritual while using a perfume post showers.
By mixing and matching various scents, you'll ensure your perfume fragrance goes the long mile. After cleaning yourself with a shower gel of choice, spray some deodorant on the desired area, drizzle the perfume over it and wait. After 30 mins exact, apply some water on the same area, to strengthen the odor of your perfume.
6. Contrary to belief, rubbing your wrists together will do you more harm than good.
After application of your cologne, as told by your elders, rubbing the wrists together won't distribute the scent for you. In turn, it'll throw the top notes of your fragrance into thin air and result into its scent lasting shorter than usual.

7. NEVER shake your perfume bottle.
In ideology, perfume liquids are supposed to remain still. By shaking the bottle, you'll allow for air to come in and as a result, affect the quality of the fragrance.
8. Don't overdo it!
By spraying too much, you're not doing any good. You're not going to smell better. In fact, you're only going to choke your girl with it. So, don't go overboard. Apply the bare minimum, and witness your life change.
