  • Did you know that there's an element of

  • style that can boost your confidence, double your chances of getting a woman's phone

  • number, reduce stress, and increase your perceived level of trust.

  • No, it's not your suit or even that nice pocket square.

  • It's actually invisible to the eye.

  • We're talking about fragrance.

  • Smell has a powerful effect on how others perceive you.

  • It's a fact, gentlemen.

  • And despite this, nearly 80% of men don't use fragrance on a regular basis.

  • So, you're ready to start using this hidden style weapon, but how to use it correctly?

  • Don't worry gents.

  • In today's video, I'm going to teach you how to use and apply fragrance correct.

  • So, let's clear up a few terms first.

  • Cologne.

  • It's a name often thrown around, but it doesn't necessarily refer to a fragrance for men.

  • Just like perfume doesn't necessarily refer to a fragrance for women.

  • Cologne and perfume are different names for the concentration of oils contained in the fragrance.

  • A cologne is going to be about 2% to 4% oil concentration, an eau de toilette is going

  • to be about a 5% to 15% oil concentration, and a perfume is going to be about 20% to 30% oil concentration.

  • The higher the concentration, the stronger the smell and the greater the lasting power of the fragrance.

  • Silage is a term you may hear and this refers to the degree

  • in which a fragrance's smell will linger in the air.

  • Okay.

  • So, at this point you're probably wondering, Antonio, where do I get the right fragrance for me?

  • Do I have to go out and spend $100 by that big bottle and find out I just don't like it?

  • Guys, don't do that.

  • I want you to go check out Scentbird.

  • Use it or lose it.

  • So now, let's discuss how to actually use apply and where a fragrance.

  • You want to apply the cologne to the warmest parts of your body.

  • As your body heat will help to push the smell of the fragrance out throughout the day.

  • Now, it's important to apply fragrance to dry clean skin if you want to get the most miles out of it.

  • Me, personally about ten minutes after I'm out of the shower and I dried of completely,

  • that's when I like to apply.

  • Great areas to apply fragrance and note, you don't need to apply to all of these areas

  • are behind the ears, the back of the neck, the chest, the shoulders, the wrists, the

  • inner elbows, and the forearms.

  • Exactly where you spray is going to be your own personal preference.

  • Me, personally, I like to spray right on the chest, but I know some men, they want to go

  • back of the neck.

  • Other guys they want to have a few extra sprays here or there on the shoulder on the wrist, again, up to you.

  • Now, when spraying the fragrance, you want to hold the bottle about 3 to 6 inches away from your skin.

  • Now, if you just finished shaving, don't spray fragrance on your neck, it contains

  • high percentage of alcohol and it can be painful and cause irritation.

  • Now, understand when you spray your fragrance on our skin,

  • it's going to smell slightly different for each individual.

  • Why?

  • Because on our bodies we've got our own natural oils that are going to mix with the fragrance.

  • Now, spraying on your clothes is an option and it's a good choice if you're going

  • to wear multiple layers of clothing and you don't want the scent to get buried.

  • However, be careful, the oils in some fragrances can potentially stain your clothing if put on too heavily.

  • If in doubt, make sure to test on a small spot that isn't noticeable.

  • Now, gentlemen, don't spray your fragrance in the air create some type of cloud and

  • thinking you can walk into it.

  • This is not how you apply a fragrance.

  • It's very ineffective because most of the fragrance is going to fall right to the floor.

  • Now, if you're using a splash bottle instead of a spray bottle, use one to two fingers

  • and then put the fragrance precisely where you want it.

  • Also, you don't want to rub the fragrance into the skin.

  • This actually destroys the molecular bond making the scent weaker.

  • Remember, gents, less is more when it comes to fragrance.

  • Fragrance should be discovered not announced.

  • I really like to put on a light spray of fragrance, so it can only be detected when you're close to me.

  • Don't be that guy who bathes himself in colognes and fragrances and he announces himself

  • before he even enters the room.

  • And when he's in the room, people are jumping out the windows.

  • No, do not be that guy.

  • If you're going to be walking around outside on the city streets, then you can wear a bit

  • more and this is also a great time to wear a fragrance that you haven't tested.

  • If you're going to be in close quarters like on an airplane or you're going into

  • an interview, for everyone's sake, go lighter on the fragrance.

  • Finally, when it comes to storing your fragrance, you want to keep it in a cool dark place that

  • doesn't have much fluctuation in temperature.

  • A great location is a bedroom closet, a bad location the window sill in your bathroom.

  • Not only that the temperature go up and down, but the exposure to sunlight is going to ruin that fragrance.

  • Also, make sure the cap is securely on when storing the fragrance, so it doesn't evaporate.

  • There you have it, gents, all the info you need to start wearing fragrance today.

  • And, guys, if you're still looking for your signature scent, I want you to go check out

  • Scentbird.

  • I'm linking to them down in the description of this video.
