And if you think spraying cologne on cloth makes it last longer, you are wrong because the scent evaporates after some time. Therefore it should be applied on the skin.

3. Not revitalizing it.

It’s a fact that no deodorant lasts longer. You are supposed to apply it in every four hours after washing heavy sweat areas or cleaning it with wet wipes. If you simply spray without cleaning, you’ll apply it on a layer of sweat, not skin.

4. You are applying it at wrong places.

Identify your skin type and choose deodorant accordingly. If you have sensitive skin, avoid using colognes with high chemicals. On the other hand, if your body perspires a lot, use antiperspirants over deodorants. They have extra chemicals which can absorb sweat besides killing germs.

Pick up a cologne that matches your bath and beauty products. If your body wash has a floral smell, get a deodorant that has a similar fragrance. Else different kinds of scents will clash and the result can be a disaster.
