Your cologne bottle needs to be stored in the right environment as well as cold and dry place. That is why saving it in a bathroom is a bad idea; the heat of your shower and water splashes makes the bonds of your perfume weaker that is why when you apply it, it disappears quickly.
Your room or cupboard is much like a place to keep it also makes sure the palace is cool. Also, relocate your colognes at the back of table and dresser and avoid the corners which can quickly hit the bottle and it can break easily. That is why choose a safe and appropriate place to keep your cologne to make it last longer.
6. Apply your cologne on your body and before getting dressed:
You have to keep in mind that the perfumes are chemicals and when it contacts your body the chemical reaction makes it more efficient. That is why always apply to on your body rather than your clothes and also before getting dressed. It will help the product using on your skin rather than wasting it on the clothes.

Sun damages the cologne more than anything else. That is why if you have any direct source of the sun in your room or dresser, try to keep away your bottle from that place and prevent it from any heat source and sunlight.
8. Apply the cologne to your pulse areas:
The heat areas or pulse points of your body which generates heat and has more sweat glands which produce sweat all day long. Applying the cologne at these places will help you save your product as well as make your smell enjoyable all day long. These areas are:

9. Reapply it when needed:
To make your cologne last longer you have to reapply it when it is required, sometimes due to traffic, temperature, weather, crowd or stress you perfume can fade away quicker that is why you need to reapply it. The right time to reapply it is when you feel too much sweating and no fragrance of your cologne.
10. Don’t overdo it and walk right after application:
A common mistake which we do is we spray of perfume on our body which makes the scent disappear in the air that is why you waste a lot of product as well as very little is applied on the skin. Therefore understand that less is more, and you don’t need to walk in a cloud of fragrance.
Many people also have allergies to strong scents, and you might make others uncomfortable too. So make sure you apply less amount usually one spray at the time and increase the amount if required only.
Secondly, make sure to stand in the same place for few minutes’ right after the application which allows the cologne contact your body. Walking right after use will dilute the scent in the air, and you don’t have much on your skin.
