Tom Ford fragrances smell better the longer you have them on. Apply in the creases of your skin and neck for a stronger scent that lasts all day long. After applying, avoid rubbing or dabbing skin. This breaks down the cologne, causing it to wear off more quickly. If you prefer placing fragrance on your wrists, be sure to reapply after frequent hand-washing, as this tends to rinse off the scent.
