strictly behind the ears is what women do and this only shows that you the man grew up around women and she would not think you are not that manly.
Applying to the wrists is fine and back of neck if you know there will be any kissing involved.
She would be turned off if she kisses your neck and tastes nothing but cologne.
The historical idea of applying cologne is to do it very lightly and in the areas that produce heat so you get the MAX
effect out of the cologne. The time to apply is important which is why many men shave while in the shower so they can wash off the effects of the aftershave ......
So after shaving in the shower then make the water pretty cool to tighten your skin then apply the after shave
then durring this process of letting the after shave calming your skin you can continue washing other parts of your body then 3 minutes later wash off the after shave then dry off apply deoderant then cologne next. Then when dry put on the bathrobe and exit the bathroom which lets your skin further dry off.
I forgo the bathrobe part and just lay down on my bed and let the rest of the moisture take the rest of the wetness away so I can dress as fast as possible without breaking a sweat put on dress slack then apply cologne to the chest area. If already dressed then just to the back of your neck.
DO NOT BATHE IN THE COLOGNE! if it has a pump then 1 pump or 2 is max! if not pump then less than half a thimble is all you need.
You send the wrong signal to everyone if you wear cologne and no deoderant.
