    Most scents sort of wake me up and distract me, or make me feel alert. I've just tested Ubar on my arm and was going to wear it to bed, but I feel it sharpening my senses.

    This is strange...but Bal a Versailles has been known to cure my insomnia. I think it makes me feel languid, as if I've already expended energy and now can sleep.

    I have two approaches to bedtime scents. The first is when there is no pressing need to fall asleep quickly. On those nights, I get out my box o'samples and dab both wrists with different fragrances. My husband and I spend time getting to know them, fragrance-stimulated free associating, and trying to put into words what we gather from each fragrance.

    When it is more critical that sleep come quickly and remain deep, I choose fragrances for the following predominant notes:
    vanilla
    heliotrope
    almond
    vanilla
    musk
    mimosa
    linden
    talc

    These notes, when well framed, almost guarantee a deep and restful sleep.

    I am not sure anyone has mentioned this yet, but I tend to wear to bed scents I am slightly ashamed of owning - one cheesey example would be Jasper Conran Mistress. If you saw me in my wincyette pyjamas, "mistress" is the last description that would spring to mind!

    Totally agreed there- milk and I don't get on - so no wonder I go for the creamy vanilla musks at bedtime - a kind of replacement.

    None on myself - but every few days a few sprays of either Shalimar or Coco on to the pillow (by that I really mean on the pillow, under the pillowcase). Because their basenotes are actually quite soft and have a half-life of 200 million years.

    I wonder how your scenario compares to my LLBean flannel tartan night shirt worn with Shalimar extrait

    I've recently really been liking Pink Sugar at bedtime. It's so lighthearted, sweet, and comfy, and gives me fluffy, pink bedtime visions.

    Very similar, I should think. Were we not all scattered to the winds, we could hold an "ironic perfume slumber party"... : - )

    Default Nightcap fragrance: Do you wear a fragrance to bed?

    (I'm going to post this also on the male fragrance discussion board, too).

    I often find myself wanting to apply a spray or two of something just as I'm going to bed. I don't think there's anything odd about this, I chalk it up to aromatherpy, but naturally I can't enjoy this as much as I would if I were awake. It gives a whole new meaning to OSmosis, huh? Does anyone else feel this way? Does anyone have a "nightcap" fragrance they'd recommend?

    I guess I should have told you mine: I like a spray of Lolita au Masculin just before some shuteye! I'm going to do that now...

    There were very recent threads on both the men's and women's boards which covers this topic...short answer is "yes"

    I generally don't. But if it do, I would wear something fresh, low, calming so that I can relax myself :P

    Anything quite heavy in vanilla. It is one of my favourite smells and taste

    Default Re: Bedtime scents

    I tend to oscillate between vanilla (Douceur de la Vanille or
    Cuir Beluga) and Heliotrope (Etro Heliotrope, Piver Heliotrope Blanc
    and Lullaby by Jeffrey Dame.) I will try a spritz of my hubbie's
    Vetiver by Guerlain after all those recommendations that vetiver is a
    sleep inducer.

    When I don't already have another fragrance on, I almost always sleep in Teint de Neige. I've worn it to bed for over five years now, and it's gotten to the point where it actually has a somewhat narcotic effect on me - my Pavlovian response to it, I'm sure - but now I can't imagine wearing it during the day. It's beautifully soft and fluffy, feminine, tranquil, dreamy, warm, cozy and cuddly, all the things a good bedtime scent should be ...and my husband loves it, too.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Molinard Vanille, Lolita Lempicka L, Bvlgari au The Rouge. I don't put them on as bed scents but tend to wear these more at home to relax then when out and about, so, in a way, they can become bed scents.
