    Question Posting SOTD Before Actually Wearing?

    I confess I do this a lot as it makes it easier for me to pick my SOTD.

    Of course if I get a jones for a frag that I can't shake then that's what I wear, sort of like listening to a song that's stuck in your head in a counterintuitive effort to get it out, at least for a little while.

    But when it's down to a few I'll sometimes post one arbitrarily and that's what I wear.

    Does anyone else do this, or have other methods for choosing what to wear when you're feeling indecisive?

    I sometimes need a little kick in the butt to get my day going, so yes, I confess, I do this myself.

    I also sometimes use other Basenoters' choices as "hints" for my next SOTD and/or SOTE. For example, I saw that someone today chose Yang by Jacques Fath. I haven't worn my Yang in a while (boy, that sounded bad!) and think I'll wear my Yang tomorrow. (Will YOU be wearing YOUR Yang?)

    Seriously, I do this kind of SOTD selection fairly often -- just crack it up to the power of suggestion, I reckon.

    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    Yes I do I choose the previous night before retiring. I spray a little on the back of my hand as a "cheat" before I wake. If it's something new and don't care for it, I'll edit my post with a known preference.

    God I love Basenoters! I often will name my sotd before I actually even shower. The real kicker is that a couple of times I have changed my mind and worn something alltogether different and didn't bother to change my sotd. I enered it as my sote later in the day. There, I feel better now!

    This is an interesting thread. Honestly, every time I posted my SotD before I applied it, I actually ended up wearing something else. I basically decide what I am going to wear as soon as I get out of the shower. It is pretty spontaneous, depending on how I am feeling at that very moment.

    Yes, I pre-plan my fragrance like I pre-plan my clothes: the night before.

    Well, I'd only choose my SOTD the night before wearing it if I have something special to do, attending business bouquet for example, or having a date. But if there's nothing special, I'd decide right in that morning, normally after a shower, I'd think hard of what to wear, which has a lot to do with the weather and my mood. Old ones would be left behind. I'd wear new ones and then go back to older ones, but since 2008 I haven't been able to stop myself from buying, so I have been wearing new scents for the past 4-5 weeks.

    And since I have about 150 bottles, I also wear another scent after the shower at the gym. I love walking home smelling a bit warm and sweet, it just fits the nighttime.

    Also, for the past 2 weeks, I got 2 stalkers, not sure if that was by the scent I wore. One night it was Sander for Men (1999) and another was Jacomo Rouge. Both of the stalkers were gay and asked impolite questions. Guess it was a power of cologne. LOL.

    I shower, and then go stand in front of my frag fridge and pick what speaks to me at that moment or seems right. Very little advance thought or planning.

    In fact, when I don't end up wearing what I posted, I feel guilty. Imagine that! :-)

    I do the posting the night before also, because I can't always get to it first thing in the morning. And I also spray a bit on my hand before retiring as a promise of the day to come. If I feel tempted to switch, though, I usually don't. I try to stay true to my post.

    As of now, I have many samples to choose from. I just grab one and shower and apply. When I get to work and have a break I will post my SotD. Sometimes I check to see if anyone commented about it in the thread or talked about the fragrance elsewhere later that day.

    Once I start wearing something regularly I probably won't end up posting what I'm wearing but who knows!

    What? That I don't choose my sotd in advance? Or that I don't choose it naked?

    What an odd response.
