Okay I have a newbie question regarding EdT & colognes. What is an EdT & how is it used? Is it used instead of a cologne or with a cologne?Confused

In descending order of potency:
Parfum
Eau de Parfum
Eau de Toilette
Eau de Cologne
After shave
Body Splash

EdT is supposed to last longer than EdC.

Splash some on your wrists and wipe them on your neck.
Off you go.

If you are using an edt with a spray attachment, give your chest a shot or two, and a shot to each wrist. If you are using a splash bottle, give the bottle a shake onto your palms and do the same thing. Go easy at first, until you find out how strong the aroma is. Otherwise you may end up clearing out the room!! Some scents project much more than others.

Definitely don't want to go to far; SWMBO has a sensitive nose and would not be happy!

Then SWMBO will be the perfect person to say when you have applied enough!
