    Default On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    I find myself applying fragrances 3-6 times per day, depending on what I have on my agenda. This seems like quite a bit to me, but then again, I like to constantly change.

    How many times per day do you apply fragrances?
    Lately I've been wearing:

    Wait do you mean different scents or the same scent? I usually re-apply 3-5 times a day.

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    Three:

    In the morning before I levae for work, before I go to work and when I leave work.

    If it's a long lasting fragrance, I only spray on my shirt at lunch and apply again mid-afternoon rather than before I leave work.

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    Well, most days, being 46, just apply once before I leave for work. Maybe, if I have church or a meeting or a nice dinner, I will reapply when I get home from work. Maybe on a Saturday or Sunday, twice, but usually just once in the morning. That is why I like longlasting scents and those that tend to project. I am finding myself tempted to get those roll on applicators to decant scents to freshen up at lunch, but I have two Creed spray bottles and I fear I would somehow mess up the spray nozzle trying to uncrimp it, and I dont trust that spraying it into a funnel into an applicator bottle is going to keep from wasting the juice.

    Generally two rounds of applications in the day is tops. Sometimes 3 such as lately having so many samples to test drive.

    My usual thing is a round of something to start the day. Then something in the early evening (usually different) or I at least do so after I've showered and dried off.

    One for the day. Two if I go out that night but it'll be just another spray or two.

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    Just once in the morning before i leave for work. I apply enough to last the entire day. Also, i apply enough for it to be just as strong as i'm leaving to go home at night as it is when i first arrive at work in the morning.

    Usually 1-2 times. The second time I'm usually applying a new fragrance or testing out something else.

    Usually twice. Once after showering in the morning. Then once at nighttime for comfort. As I've been exercizing more often these days and hence showering more, it's going up to 3.

    Depends on the scent, with some one application is sufficient, with some others one or two more might be necessary.

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    depends on the scent...

    if i happen to wear 1 frag for the day, i usually go for 2 (strong scents)/3-4 (lighter scents) sprays and then reapply after a couple of hours.
    if i happen to wear more than 2 frags for the day, the sky's the limit! :bounce:

    Once in the AM before work, and once in the PM after returning home from work, exercising, and showering.

    Add me to the once in the morning, once in the evening camp. I usually change to something else in the evening from my daytime scent.

    Normally only once, in the morning. Seldom twice, depending on the situation.

    Because most of my faves are notoriously short-lived, I usually reapply 2-3 times. And sometimes when I go out, I'll even bring a little atomizer to refresh if I feel it's needed.

    I apply once in the morning and I don't re-apply. If I shower in the evening I'll most likely pick a different scent after that.

    I usually exercise once a day, either at lunch time or early evening. So I usually apply twice, and usually change scent the second time.

    Just once in the morning. Quality fragrances should last all day and night.

    Only once a day 90% of the time. If I go back out for church or a dinner, I'll reapply the same scent I wore that morning if I don't shower. If I shower again, I'll pick a different scent.

    I'm once a day too unless I have something special going on in the evenings. Then I will usually just reapply the same scent later in the day if I haven't showered. Part of me says that a quality scent should last through the day and I like to sample at night.

    twice-three times

    once in am, then if it's a strong scent i will skip reapply but will try another scent at night after i shower.

    other times once in am, then if it's a weak scent i will layer another on top, figuring the first one is pretty much gone. then after evening shower try a different scent.

    i have plenty of bottles so im not worried about wasting juice. anything that is rare or discontinued i will only spray in the morning or if im going out for the night....

    I apply it when I get out of the shower in the morning unless I'm going out later that night, which I'll usually shower and apply again but it may or may not be the same scent.

    2 or 3. I usually apply a Guerlain cologne (Imperial or du Coq mostly) after work and then something for the evening a bit later.

    If it is a longevity monster, just in the morning. But I own some very short-lasting frags like Penhaligon's that I might wear to church, then apply something different when I get home.

    Usually just once for my winter rotation because I find they are plenty strong. I keep a decant of my fresh summer scents at work for a re-up after lunch.

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    Usually just the once; occasionally twice or three times if I actually remember to take the bottle or an atomiser with me. I usually leave my arms, wrists and hands clear in case I want to do any sampling over the course of a day.

    Once in the morning. Sometimes on the weekend I will reapply in the evening if we are headed out, but depending on what I'm wearing that isn't always even necessary.

    I only re-apply after a shower and I am going out. Don't want to be the "Cologne guy".

    Holy necrothread, Batman!

    I just do it once in the morning post-shower as I head off to work. If I'm going out on a date or something, I will apply again but in limited amounts.

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    Once a day on the average is largely sufficient to me, especially if the longevity, projection etc. of the respective SOTD is good.

  46. #46

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    once if it's a long lasting frag, twice (again after lunch) if it's short-lasting one and I remember to take the bottle to work.

  47. #47

    Default Re: On average, how many times do you apply fragrance(s) throughout your day?

    Once in the morning before work
    Once in the afternoon from a 5ml decant after lunch if I'm not too busy and I don't think it'll be too noticeable that I've reapplied.
    Once in the evening if I'm going out for dinner or a date. 99% of the time a different fragrance if the previous one has died enough otherwise its the same one or I shower and apply if its something important. (Usually I shower before I go to sleep though.)

    2 applications at the most.

    I usually do 1-2 sprays in the morning. Pretty much all of my fragrances last on me for the duration of my day. I only apply a second time if I am going out at night. At night, I may do 2-3 sprays at the most.

    Not true. Some don't because they can't be made to and still smell the way they do. Some are meant to not last long.

    Depends on the fragrance and the day (if I'm at home or out). Something like D&G The One I can apply 3-4 times throughout the day if I'm home or doing errands. If I'm out I like to pick something that will last for 5-6 hours at least, so I only need to apply it once.
