L’Occitane is sharing the best 10 tips on using Eau de Cologne:
1. Neck/ Ears/ arms
Shake a little bit of Cologne onto your palm and rub your hands together quickly. Rub over your neck, and behind your ears for an invigorating effect.
Apply the Eau de Cologne on a wet and cold washcloth and pass on neck, shoulders and arms for a cooling sensation!
You can also spray on a handkerchief and rub it over your arms, the back of the neck and legs, or anywhere else you are feeling warm. The alcohol will evaporate quickly, imparting a cooling sensation.
2. After-bath Splash
When you get out of your bath or your shower, splash your body with an Eau de Cologne, you will feel a long-lasting cooling effect.
3. For a light fragrance
Put just a fingertip against the top of the bottle and wet it with the cologne. Touch your wet finger to the back of your earlobes and the inside of your wrists. This will give you the lightest touch of fragrance for situations when you have to be among a group of people (when aromas can be overpowering).
