    Default How often do you go without fragrance?

    I''m just curious how often you choose to forego fragrance for a whole day or longer. And what fuels that choice - do you ever get sick of fragrance in general? or perhaps you just won't wear them to certain occasions or places, etc.

    I tend not to wear anything on my workout days, as I workout after work and can't handle anything but fresh air while slaving away on a bike or treadmill or while hitting the weights. I do occasionally spray afterwards but typically go to bed within a few hours and so it is rare. I work third shift and then work out in the mornings, so those few hours between work and sleep I rarely see anyone else as they are all at work themselves.

    So, when and why (and how often) do you go without fragrance?

    Default Re: How often do you go without fragrance?

    I only wear a fragrance if I'm going out of the house. If I'm staying in all day I see no reason to wear one.

    Rarely would not have a fragrance.. I usually put my SOTD on whether or not I'm going out, and if I work out come the evenings they're usually faded away..

    If I'm unwell though I usually forego fragrances..

    I never go without if I can help it.
    The only time I MAY do without is if Im nauseous or sick to the stomach due to a bug or virus.

    Never.

    I never go out without wearing a fragrance.

    Never.

    Unless I'm sick and then it's just a matter of not being able to drag myself over to where they are.

    I wear more when I'm alone than when I go out.

    Essentially never. Perhaps if I have a cold and can't smell, I'll refrain - though even the thought of having it on, as well as the application ritual itself, can be positive. At home I tend to use even more - as I like to experiment and wear several frags at once. Sure I like it when others enjoy how I smell, but, bluntly, I'm in this purely for my own enjoyment.

    I shouldn't have given the impression that I never wear scents for myself. Heck, I wear Salvador Dali pour homme, and that's definitely for me . There are times and days where I just don't feel like a scent though, tbh. Every once in a while going for a walk and smelling the crisp autumn air or whatever is infinitely more enjoyable than a fragrance.

    I always try to wear something, but in summer , or some summer holiday destination , I sometimes go without when the weather is hot. Sun and perfume is not good for your skin, so they say. I alway use deo though.

    Default Re: How often do you go without fragrance?

    I can't remember the last day i wasn't wearing a fragrance.
    Infact there are days i wear two different scents in a day. I look for reasons to wear a perfume or change what i am wearing.

    Then there are times when i spray something on the back of my palm just because i am craving for some particular fragrance.
    Somedays i think i shouldn't wear any fragrance because i feel i should rest my nose, even on those days i end up wearing Mugler Cologne or Millesime Imperial which are easy on the nose.

    I think for me, fragrance has become a part of my 'attire' and i don't see it changing, atleast in the near future.

    So you wear them purely for others as opposed to for your own enjoyment as well? I certainly don't like going a day without one. When i do, it always feels like something is missing.

    I wonder if my attitude would be different if my wardrobe was larger. It's a bit, well, perhaps not one dimensional but a couple of my scents (Dali pour homme, grey flannel, bmen) are scents I only wear on particular occasions. I need more day to day scents.

    Sometimes if I'm staying home all day, I might not use anything and just give my nose a rest. If I'm really ill - as in sick-enough-to-have-to-stay-home - then I also would not use anything.

    But otherwise... nope, can't think of a day when I've gone out and not used at least a very light fragrance. Not since I started using 'em, anyways
    Where once there was no scents to it all, now the world opens before me!

    I wear fragrance every day. Regardless of my plans, who I will see, etc. As soon as I get out of the shower and dry off, scent comes on. That's just how it is.

    Once in a while I take a day off, this is rare. Maybe when and if I am bored with my options, but even then I sometimes stop in a store at lunch time if I am in New York, and I try something on. But I do take a break for a day or two every now and then. Or if, as Ebear said, I have a cold or don't feel well I wouldn't likely wear a fragrance. If I am home all day I still usually put something on as I wear scents more for me and not necessarily for others.

    I can't remember the last time when I went out inscented. Must be ten or more years ago. When at home all day, I rarely use fragrance, but at times I do. Depends on my mood.

    Default Re: How often do you go without fragrance?

    Only for work, part of my "wardrobe". I have stated before my SO is sensitive to smell and she does not want the kids to be exposed of the smell (how ever pleasant they are....) either. I only wear fragances after I leave the house carrying a bottle and/or decant in my briefcase. If the scent has excellent longevity, I sometime have to do the unthinkable.... that is to resort to wiping it off with a wet napkin to tone it down a bit. Of course, if I am sick, no scent for me either.

    Do not go out of my house without a scent , no scent if I am sick in bed, and that is about the only time I can think of not wearing anything

    Default Re: How often do you go without fragrance?

    Very rarely I will not apply anything if I am home all day and I don't shower because I'm cleaning or sick. With the exception of those 2 things I will always wear something on my sking to make me smell delicious.

    On a busy day I may not get to my first scent till afternoon and If I'm totally beat I have been known to forget a new scent for bed. I also skip when I'm likely to be decanting a bunch.

    Whenever I'm not working or socialising, I usually don't bother - it's great to give the nose a rest every so often.

    I've had the flu for nine days and I was in no mood for perfume. Feeling somewhat better now and wore DSH Sandalo Inspiritu today.

    No, I enjoy them, but it's not something I need to enjoy while sitting alone. I also enjoy wearing nice clothes, but if I'm not going out of the house I see no reason in wearing a suit.
