There’s no sense in wearing men’s cologne if the fragrance is only going to last for a few minutes before evaporating into thin air. Unfortunately, there are many of these low-quality colognes on the market and it can be difficult to determine the top fragrances for men that are long-lasting.
Understand What The Different Notes Mean
Without knowledge about the different notes in your bay rum cologne, it can be difficult to know what to expect in terms of long-lasting cologne. Our collection of the best bay rum cologne comes in various scents, with each formula including an eloquent combination of different scents.
For example, our West Indian Lime Cologne blends the natural scent of limes with a hint of bergamot orange and our No. 77 cologne combines fresh lemon and bold bergamot aromas with leafy herbal tones. Each scent is a note with some being top notes or mid notes and others being base notes. Each note dries up at different intervals, resulting in the fragrance changing over time and all three levels are needed for an aromatically appealing scent.
Here’s a crash course on what the different notes in bay rum cologne mean:
The top notes in bay rum cologne are the aromas you perceive immediately upon application. They tend to last approximately 15 to 120 minutes
The middle notes in the best bay rum cologne make up the main body of the masculine scent. These notes emerge in the middle of the application process and serve to balance the cologne as a whole. Mid notes can last anywhere from 30 minutes to five hours.
The base notes in bay rum cologne are often the deeper, richer aromas that linger on the skin even after the top notes have dissipated. Base notes can continue to emit the fragrance for two to eight hours, sometimes more depending on the quality of cologne you’re wearing.
How to Make Your Bay Rum Cologne Last Even Longer
The best bay rum cologne is already crafted for a long-lasting scent but there are many things you can do to ensure your aroma stays for as long as you need it to. Here are some tips for applying bay rum cologne properly to make it last from the boardroom to the bar:
- Apply bay rum cologne right after you get out of the shower on clean, dry skin
- Moisturize before applying cologne for maximum absorption into your skin
- Spray the bay rum cologne on your skin, not on your clothing
- Target your pulse points, such as your inner elbows, inner wrists and neck
- Avoid rubbing the cologne onto your skin after applying
- Lay your bay rum cologne with complementary products in the cologne gift sets
