Coco Chanel once said that a woman without perfume is a woman without a future.
But this does not give you permission to suffocate someone else’s future with your own signature scent.
Wearing a perfume that makes you happy is a wonderful thing, that’s the mission of every fragrance on the market. The problem occurs when you cross the line between wearing it for your own pleasure and wearing it for the others.
You know the type that wears fragrances just for the compliments. You can sense their perfumes across the gym or when the perfume fills the elevator, even if this person has gotten off five floors ago, ten minutes ago…
While many people love to distinguish themselves with their choice of perfume, whether their olfactive selection will offend those in their immediate and not so immediate surroundings depends on the fragrance itself as well as the perfumer application.
In order to get a more detailed information about sillage, diffusion and application, I suggest you read our What is perfume sillage? blog post.
The current fragrance trends are different from the trends in the eighties, and the most popular fragrances are made with just the right amount of sillage and diffusion. These are fragrances that garner lots of compliments.
However, many people are convinced that the only way to get noticed is to replace bathing water with fragrance, which is the right way to offend many people, especially if the perfume is worn at the workplace.

Perfume Application: Frequently Asked Questions
1. How many perfume sprays is too much?
There is no definitive answer to this question, as it will vary depending on the person and the scent. However, it is generally advised not to apply more than three or four sprays, as excessive perfume use can be overwhelming and irritating. Additionally, over-application of perfume can cause the fragrance to wear off more quickly.
2. Can you spray two colognes?
Yes, you can spray two colognes. However, it is not recommended because when you spray two different colognes, the scents will compete with each other, and neither one will smell as strong as it should. In addition, you may end up with a strange mix of smells that doesn’t smell very good.
If you really want to wear two different colognes, it is suggested to spray them on different parts of your body. That way, they’ll both smell strong, and you won’t have to worry about them competing with each other.
3. How many sprays are 1.7 oz?
There are about 100 sprays of cologne in 1.7 ounces. That’s a good amount to last for a few months, but it depends on how often you wear it and how strong the fragrance is.
4. What do you do if you spray too much cologne?
If you have sprayed too much cologne, here are some solutions that might help you:
- The best thing to do is to find yourself in need of a quick shower to get rid of the smell from your body or clothes.
- If you are in a situation where you can’t take a shower, try to put on some deodorant before going out in public so people will smell less of your scent
- Change your clothes as wearing something different will help freshen up your olfactory signature and maybe even remove any lingering odors.
5. How long does a cologne spray last?
The sprays of cologne can last anywhere from 2-8 hours on average, but some factors can affect how long it lasts, such as body chemistry and the weather. For instance, the scent will start to dissipate sooner if it’s in a hot or humid environment or you have a dry skin type.
6. Which type of cologne lasts the longest?
The best cologne for a lasting scent has high levels of aromatic oils like lavender and sandalwood. Also, some scents that are often said to last longer than others include earthy scents like patchouli and spicy fragrances such as cinnamon or clove. That’s because these heavier and natural scents are not as easily overpowered by other smells in the environment.
7. What happens when cologne expires?
Expired cologne smells different from fresh cologne. The scent also tends to be weaker and less intense than when the perfume is new. If you’re like most people, your nose will be able to identify expired cologne as you may not be able to smell it on yourself or other people.
You may check out these below-mentioned signs that your cologne is expired:
- It looks dark under the cap, which means that there are molecules present that were not originally in the mix when it was made.
- The fragrance becomes more intense with time. This change can happen because certain chemicals break down over time and give off different smells
- Also, check for these signs like color change (it may appear yellow/greenish) and consistency change (it may become thicker or thinner).
To make sure your cologne lasts as long as possible, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
