    I usually apply one spray to each side of my neck & one spray to the back of my neck, and maybe one spray on the wrist & touch (don't rub) to the other wrist.

    It helps with longevity to apply unscented lotion about 15min before applying your fragrance.

    Most aftershave fragrances require a "splash" type of application since most of them do not have a spray nozzle applicator. Sprayers are mainly found on bottles of cologne, EDT and perfume.

    Aftershave is just a term used to describe fragrances in general in the uk.

    Can't remember the last time I saw an "Aftershave" with a sprayer!

    Never applied aftershave other than thorough the splash method, yet applying a (preferably unscented) face moisturizer/cream slightly before or slightly after it is applied seems to "lock in" its scent for a somewhat longer time
