    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    I'm surprised many people wear Blue Amber... because that's how I first tested Blue Amber. I fell right asleep. It takes me forever to fall asleep.

    I always test a sample before bedtime.

    The best one and I need more of was MoslBuddJewChristHinDao.

    CdG 2 Man was also great.

    Put a bunch on your chest, go to bed shirtless, leave the covers off your upper torso and let the aroma fill your nostrils and dreams. When you get cold you'll pull the covers on but it's quite the experience.

    i make it a point to spray on after a shower whether or not i leave my house after. As for nights, i always use 3-4 sprays of ADG on my sheets and pillows. its light enough for fabric freshing in my room. Im still hoping maybe armani would come out with an ADG "Intense"(some how ADG gives me the impression of cucumber-ish scent, i find it perfect for a therapeutic pleasant sleep inducer.... esp on my pillows. , but ive given up nwearing it since bvlgari aqva came along.

    anyone else uses frags on theri sheets, pillows etc? i sometimes use weekend for a change coz it too is pointless for wearing out when it lasts 3 hours tops on me, better off making the best of blunder buys.

    I always wear fragrance before bed.

    Recently I've become addicted to Shalimar (the EdC) by Guerlain as my go-to scent for bed.

    I tend to avoid 'testing' scents before bed. Many scents are too disruptive too sleep. I avoid leathers, heavy/sweet scents and anything bracing (mint/citrus).

    I caution against wearing Black Orchid by Tom Ford to bed, I had a very unrestful sleep wearing this one night. Never again!

    Mostly I have an urge to smell something before going to bed - so I put a fragrance on my hands to try it out. Recently I made a natural Jasmine perfume with Vanilla and Clary Sage ets... and I put in on my body before I go to sleep together with some naturally scented Jasmine creme with Jasmine, Lavender and Chamomille. A kind of calming down ritual.

    Curiousto try Amber scents for this purpose.

    Only if I'm testing something new and like it, or if I've just found something new I'm enamored with. Most of my favorite scents are discontinued and/or hard to get, so I have to ration them very carefully and can't afford to wear them regularly just to sleep with

    Always! My bedtime is for testing something new or re-visiting scent that hasn't been used recently. Otherwise, I just use scented body lotion. I seldom go to bed with just clean-soapy smell!
