    Default Proper Places of Application

    Hello,

    Where is the proper place for men to apply cologne to their body? Neck? Chest? Do you spray it onto bare skin or onto your clothing?

    Thanks,

    King

    My husband sprays it onto his neck/throat and a little of his chest. Bare skin is probably better than on clothing--it will blend with your own scent. Some people do spray it on clothing, especially if their skin does not hold scent well (you will find this out be experience), but test the fragrance first in an inconspicuous place to make sure it won't stain.

    Depends on my mood, the weather, and the fragrance, but in general I do 2-3 to the chest, 1 to the wrists+rub, maybe 1 to the inside elbow, and 1 to the back of the neck.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I tend to apply my fragerances to the upper chest / neck area. With typically one spray, two sprays is my max.
