    APPLICATION
    Depending on the strength of the cologne, use anywhere from 1 to 5 sprays. Most people go with 2 or 3 sprays. If the strength of the cologne is an 'eau fraiche', you can easily use 3-5, or if the cologne itself is especially light. If the cologne is of perfume strength or is a winter scent, use sparingly. Typically, heavier scents like those should only be sprayed 1 to 2 times.

    The frag in question should be sprayed on pulse points, or points on the body where there is a pulse/vein/major artery. Spraying on this point allows the cologne to develop properly due to it being heated by the pulse point. Some claim this is broscience, but it works well for me and many others. Usual pulse points/application spots include the sides of the neck where the carotid artery is, the base of the neck, the back of the neck (more rarely applied here, good for people to smell you after you pass by), the wrists, the inner elbow inserts, and the back of the knees. Experiment with it and see what works for you.

    STORAGE
    Ideally, you should store your fragrances in its box if you keep it on a dresser etc. If you keep it in a closet, the box is unnecessary but keep the lid on. Never store it in the bathroom or in direct sunlight. Has to be a cool and dark environment.

    INCREASE LONGEVITY
    It is very common for people who have been wearing the same perfume for a long time to become desensitized to its smell. This might be your case. Another reason to why perfumes do not last on you could be that your skin is too dry. If that is the case, apply either an unscented body lotion, or one that matches your perfume. You might also spray some on your clothes, but not on light colors, since it might leave a stain. Olfactory fatigue is also a phenomenon common with fragrances, especially Creed Aventus. To prevent this, try to apply the fragrance as far away from your nose as possible.

    FRAGRANCE TERMINOLOGY

    Flacon: A large stopper bottle or flask. Usually in reference to the large quantity of a fragrance to be decanted into smaller amounts.
    Atomizer: A device uses to convert a liquid into a mist. ie. the sprayer on the top of your bottle.

    GREY MARKET
    โ€œWhy is x fragrance so cheap here, is it fake?โ€. You have most likely ran into a site that sells grey market merchandise. Sites like FragranceNet, Notino and FragranceX usually sells these. They are 100% original, but the history of the goods can be questioned. They are usually not from the supplier (the brand), instead, they have been bought from another retailer that has had problems selling all of their stock. They buy them at a discount from them, so they can lower their prices and still make a profit when selling to us. They can be a bit older or have dinged up boxes or possibly even stored improperly, but they are 100% original. As usual, if you suspect that the online store is still suspicious, google around or ask in the thread.
