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

    (I'm going to post this also on the female 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 often sample before bed, just a tiny dab on the arm to get a general idea about the frag.

    As of late, I have been sampling before bed, like Bigsly. But Au Masculin is a great choice to wear to bed Creating a smell like you are in a world of fantasy with fairies and elves ( as the Basenotes directory says), I am all for that

    If I do it has to be something very light and close to the skin.

    I always do. I find it soothing.

    Maybe not right before bed, but in the hour or two after the day is done and before bed I'll often put on a couple zaps of something special that I really like - maybe something without full day longevity - so that I can enjoy it in my 'windown time'. I generally go with ambers or gourmands for this period (L'Artisan Ambre Extreme, for example), or something very 'pretty' like Chanel No.22 or Guerlain Apres l'Ondee. Conversely I like to run or work out first thing in the morning and will wear something for this 2-hour period before showering, usually a fragrance I haven't worn in a while that may not otherwise be office appropriate (like Montale Patchouli Leaves)

    Soothing scents that are light on longevity are perfect for bedtime wear.

    Woops.. I tried to post earlier to this but my router was acting up and didn't play nicely.
    Yes, as mentioned, this has been brought up a couple times, but I don't mind chatting about it again.
    Ones that I love are Gucci pour Homme and M7. Both are pretty fabulous evening scents. (wearing GpH tonight BTW)

    Almost never. Why expose myself to more poison while I sleep through the benefits?

    Depends upon WHO you might be bedding down with. On a lucky night Kouros hits the mark! For others I might just settle for The Dreamer.

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

    I always do. I read in bed (usually at least an hour) and enjoy smelling freshly applied fragrance(s) while reading.

    I find a single spray of Guerlains Vetiver on my clothing relaxes me and aids my sleep.

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

    Never. I rarely put something on unless I go out somewhere. I like to be put somewhere when I spray something on.

    Almost invariably. I pass my fragrance closet on the way to my room and I can't help but give a little spritz (often of more than one or two different fragrances) or I'll occasionally go to sleep with my arms loaded up with different samplings I've done so I can lie on the pillow and sniff until my eyes close.

    I don't wear fragrance to bed, but I spray some diluted lavender essential oil on my pillow.

    Always. Nighttime is when I test new scents (and revisit old friends from the back of the wardrobe).

    Hell yeah ! ... Every single night. In fact I'm unfortunately quite the insomniac. So it will take me at least two hours average, if I'm lucky, to fall asleep. So this is a perfect time for me to spend totally alone in the dark, just me and a fragrance. (Analysing the hell out of them!). Though I'll still do it if I have company too ! It's also just wonderful to wake up to a scent (or someone that's scented ;o) !) .... My faves are L'Air du Desert Marocain, Infusion D'Homme & D'Iris, anything with loads of Vanilla or Lavender ... and the list goes on and on and on and onnnnnnnnn........................................ ..... (It's probably one of my fave times to wear a scent. Where my concentration is exclusively for that fragrance ! It's almost meditative ! )

    I sample perfumes before bed. If I don't, there are a few fragrances that I like to get sweet dreams. Among them L'Heure Bleue, Avignon, Hypnotic Poison

    I apply Opium EdP (YSL, 1977) before sleeping. Wet dreams are made of this.
