    Default Where should I spray my cologne - it never lasts!

    I have a bottle of Allure Homme, and while I love the smell of it, it seems like I cannot smell it a few hours after I spray it. I've tried spraying it on my clothes, my neck, and even tried spraying it in the air and then walking into it right away. I usually ask my friends who walk right next to me if they can smell it, and they usually say no. This is disappointing, because Allure Homme Sport is a great fragrance.

    What can I do to make the fragrance last? I usually spray myself 3 times.

    Just a suggestion - try using an unscented lotion on your skin prior to applying scent and see if that helps.

    Try what hednic suggests, but I'd also try a spray or two on your clothing - I'm sat here still smelling Aventus on my hoody that I last wore two weeks ago!

    I have Cetaphil unscented. Are you saying I should spray the cologne on the parts where I apply the lotion so that it lasts longer? That's genius!

    agree ... increase your number of sprays to 6 - 1 on the chest, 2 on the exposed skin on your neck, near your ears, 1 on the back of your neck, and 2 on your arms, where your skin creases from your elbow ...

    Great post. Do you apply the lotion before or after you spray? It seems like a good way to keep the scent, even though my lotion seems to absorb quickly.

    Before reading the post linked above I would've sworn you were kidding, but your method of spray seems to be practiced by the majority here.
