    On an average day, how many people are likely to encounter your SotD?

    BLESS you for your vivid imagination (and nice note!)!!

    Are there sub-categories for proximity (who is it has the Chanel reply to the question "Where should I apply perfume?"..."...anywhere you want to be kissed!"...:bounce

    Degrees of sillage? Do checkout guys at the Supermarket count? I get extra sniffing on Tai Chi!!!

    At least 3-4. My husband, daughters, and sometimes my older daughter's friends will notice and try to guess the notes in what I'm wearing. I can't count the comments I get in public places, as I'm constantly trying to plug my Bath & Body business locally with my sneaky method of carrying around small bottles of lotions scented with my base line of fragrances, and applying them when I'm in public so that people get a whiff and say "Wow, what IS that?"

    If it's a work day, meaning I actually leave the house, then everybody at work gets a whiff. I work with several perfumey gals so we like to wave our wrists under each other's noses. Plus DH2B always has to give me a sniff and my best friend/manager is forced to smell as well. I don't count the people I encounter on the metro or in shops, but they probably occasionally get to partake in the joy!:bounce:

    Cool Re: Poll: How many people smell you in a day?

    Well, there are levels to this, as already noted. I work in an ER which sees about 200 patients a day, as an advocate I am in contact with a great many of them, so that's a lot of potential sniffs.

    My inner circle of sniffers is more elite.
    My Significant other, my children, and about seven coworkers who have solidly committed themselves to commenting on my daily obsession, giving reviews that can be as simple as "yes" or "no," to "that is stunning," or "the person who made that frag should be shot." A couple of them have become equally obsessed, thanks to me!

    The interesting thing, though, is that my children are always saying, no matter what I may be wearing, that I have that distinct Mommy smell that remains unchanging. Kind of nice.

    Do you mean how many people do we come into contact with on a daily basis with SoTD or how many people comment?

    I was really wondering about how many noses might catch a good whiff of your SotD, regardless of whether the mouths below those noses make any comment.

    Working at home, I largely choose the frags I want to wear (aside from DH's two no-nos: Io Capri and Pomegranate Noir). I think that if I knew I were to encounter more people on a regular basis, it would narrow my choice of scents to those I thought would be well received, and I'd err on the side of un-application so as not to risk offense. That's what prompted my curiosity about the range of exposures others here experience.

    Difficult question. I get in touch with more than 20 people every day, but i honestly hope they don´t all "smell me". More than 20 is my answer though, because they are all potential "sniffers"

    I voted for more than 20 because on a normal work day I do have potential sniffing contact with at least that many.

    for me, this one depends on whether I'm working or not...If I'm working (I'm a fragrance demonstrator), then everyone I talk to gets to sniff my SotD (some people even end up buying a bottle!! lol)...if I'm not working, then it's only mum, dad, my sister and my cat - she always gives me her opinion...she either sniffs & runs away (meaning she hates it) or she sniffs and rubs her face on my wrist (meaning she loves it). 2 weeks ago, I was wearing Echo Woman Summer Fizz (from work), and she ended up smelling like it herself!!

    I voted for more than 20. There are many people where I work. The persons I am working closest with have exelent noses, and I have always thought very much about what I am wearing, to not offend. - A person not working so close to me has an allergy-problem with perfumes, so I have reasently started to wear perfumed bodylotions at work for her sake, and that is OK for her. - I find only using perfumed bodylotions much more pleasant than I ever would have guessed. (But I put on perfume as soon as I leave work!)
    When I am not working, I also meet a lot of people, as I have hobbies.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    I voted for upwards of 20 for sure... esp. on a work-day at a busy university .

    Definitely more than 20! Not counting those submitted to my celestial aura (probably murderous sillage for some) on the crowded morning bus...

    I voted fewer than 5.
    I work in a small-ish office and the people who would notice my scent is my father and my colleagues who work in the same department. Unless I re-apply in the evening, my friends normally don't detect my sillage.
