    This was a basic introduction to cologne that one of my sister's LJ friends wrote. It's a good beginner's guide and an interesting read :)

    here's the direct link:

    Oy. So to just see if one scent may be right for me, I might have to wait a couple of hours to smell the basenote?

    or the people who blindly shower themselves with Aqua Di Gio because they think it's the best smell that ever graced the Earth

    as i've always preached, the most important thing about applying smelly stuff is to apply it on your pulse points (wrists and neck). i do one small spritz on my neck (half on the left, half on the right), and spritz on one wrist and then rub them together

    it actually does carry the scent better, and it's not overpowering

    the messican cleaning lady (god bless her) comes in every day around 6pm for her rounds through the office. wherever she goes, she leaves a trail of perfume that lingers for at least 15 minutes :wtc:

    i have read that you aren't supposed to rub your wrists together after you put cologne on. it crushes the smell.

    It doesn't mention sunlight being an enemy of bottled scents. Metal bottles last longer than dark glass, which lasts longer than clearer glass. In general, though, a scent will 'go off' after around a year.

    I had to throw out 2-3 of mine that I hadn't used in a while, then sprayed on and justabout had to take another shower :ugh2:

    ADG still smells good to me and last throughout the day. I don't spray it all over, 1-2 sprays at most at the neck and wrist. Never had anything but good comments about it. I've also went through tons of different colognes and always have the most comments when I wear ADG. Fierce by A&F isn't too bad either, even though it is A&F.
