    Default Do you put fragance before to sleep?

    Personally, I put only 1 spray after to take shower and go to sleep.

    Yes, I do! After my evening shower is my favorite time to test fragrances, too. Spraying each forearm with a different scent can sometimes be disastrous, though. I end up having to re-wash my arms.

    Blue Amber is a perfect sleep scent.
    I use a few; L'Huere Bleue parfum, or Timbuktu, or Bois Farine or FRACAS parfum depending on the weather & my state of mind.

    Sometimes. Usually it's samples I'm testing though.

    I only put fragrance on before sleep if I'm testing the longevity of it.

    I have been wearing Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe for bedtime, mostly. I recently discovered that Jicky EDP is also a great night-time scent. MPG Ambre Precieux is another that works very well.

    I have sampled Montale Blue Amber, and agree it is a contender. On me, it seems a bit masculine compared to the ones I mentioned above, so I am not sure I feel any urgency to add it to my rotation.

    I agree that Ambre Precieux would be excellent. Soft, warm, and close to the skin. I think that non-incense amber scents would be great in general. Two other scents that I like that way are D&G the one for men and YSL L'Homme, although the latter is a bit loud.

    Oh, absolutely! It's my favorite "get acquainted with a new scent" time. I don't have a "signature bedtime scent", though.

    Default Re: Do you put fragance before to sleep?

    Montale Original Aoud works nicely, as does pure vetiver oil or pure lavender oil or absolute. Most commercial perfumes just assault my sinuses while I sleep and detract from the overall quality of sleep so I pass on them.

    I love to wear fragrances to sleep. There seems to be an overwhelming appreciation for sleeping in various ambers. I must agree. I love showering with Sensual Amber showergel before I go to bed as well.

    I usually put either mugler cologne or CD fahrenheit before my sacktime.

    Lately I've worn a small amount of L'Antimatière (from a sample) to bed, and I've slept very well and had nice dreams
    I love cologne.

    I use Eucalyptus room spray at night. It's quite refreshing and helps me sleep well. Last night I didn't use it and had a nightmare.

    I like to spray before going to bed, usually a rich Oriental, preferably on the sweet side.

    I also like to use traditional womens' frags, not the more unisex ones I would wear in normal day to day activity, but the really floral or soft ones.

    One poster has already mentioned L'Heure Bleu. I especially like to spray that one before sleeping.

    Always! Usually my SoTD, sometimes just whatever strikes my fancy. I'm much more likely to forget to brush my teeth than to apply perfume.

    I like using the Body Shop White Musk for Men or L'Occitane Eau de L'Occitan as my "scent of sleep".

    Pinaud Clubman or Avon Wild Country usually help me have a calm and relaxing sleep.

    Sometimes I spray Extra Vieille on my pillow. But I never wear a fragrance to sleep.

    Wardrobe isn´t big enough to allow me to wear perfume at night before running out of perfume in maybe a year, and that thought alone is enough to give me nightmares.

    Once my collection is so big I wont ever run out of perfume in my life time with daily wear, then yes I´ll wear perfume at night.

    According to some articles I've read, jasmine and lavender are supposed to promote better sleep, so I've been spraying my pillow cover with Claiborne Sport before I go to bed. Although it's pretty strong, it doesn't keep me awake.
