    Shower using Ivory soap, use Mitchum unscented deo, spray the sides of my neck, upper chest, & arms. Get dressed.

    I shower and shampoo in lightly scented bath products - one's that smell good in the shower but don't linger long afterwards. I wet shave with either sandalwood or lemon scented shaving cream, depending on whether the fragrance I'm planning on is light or heavy. Then I apply my SOTD, usually 2-4 sprays distibuted around the neck and chest and ALWAYS one to the back of the hand for easy sniffing throughout the day. Then I do my brief morning exercises (a little stretching, pushups, and pullups). Another round of 1-3 sprays ***on top of where I already sprayed*** and then I get dressed. The reapplication after the first round dries really streches the longevity of most scents.

    I sit and stare blankly at my collection. I wander into the kitchen. I lie back down. I get up and take off caps and sniff spray mechanisms. Eventually, one reacts with the teeny pilot light in the middle of my brain and WHOOSH!!!

    Under the light of the full moon, I light some incense, sacrifice a goat to Perfumios, god of scent, and whip out my magic divining rod to find the perfect fragrance for the day. I sing hymns to the cologne nymphs as I apply. Sic transit gloria mundi.

    I summon the 13 Pagan Fragrance Gods and we sit and talk about the weather, humidity, setting, and outfit I will be wearing. Then he all decide upon one scent.

    This is also exactly what I do. Unless I'm running late. Then I use one of whatever samplers I've forgotten to take out of my glove box.

    I shower with lightly scented soap and use unscented Mitchum. I bought the scented Mitchum once by mistake and it clashed, loudly, with my cologne.

    I usually spray my hand with fragrance and apply by rubbing it on. I also spray it directly on my bod. Depends on what I'm going to wear, which is not decided until after my shower.
    I wear my scents below the neck and on my arms. Never on my face.

    I take a shower with irish spring soap, shave with barbasol shave cream and get out of shower. I put on unscented, ususally mitchum deodorant and then go and put my underwear and socks on. I then go back into the bathroom and stand in front of my medicine cabinet looking at all my scents and deciding which one i will wear that day. On my worst days i have been known to stand in front of my cabinet for over 15 minutes just staring at the bottles deciding on which one to wear. When i finally decide, i spray my chest, forearms and hair. If its an especially strong frag. like Kingdom, i just spray my forearms.

    I have a fifty sided dice, each side has a cologne name, I roll it, whatever it lands on, I wear. Best out of ten rolls, that is.

    I decide on which creed I'd like to smell like for the day, then fill the bathtub with as many flacons of the "sotd" that it will hold, and then enter it - hold breath, submerge for 47,63 seconds, jump out, do pushups and situps, jump back in for 47,62 seconds (do not want to reapply too strongly), jump back out, and dress quickly so that I can get out of the house drippin' wet (in order to fully appreciate said frag).

    In Russia, your fragrances ritually apply you.

    I usually like to plan out my SOTD the night before. So after I am done taking a shower, putting on deo, and putting on my socks, boxers, and pants I spray the scent.
