    On a typical day, two--one in the morning, one in the evening or at bedtime.

    Normally 1. Occasionally 2 if the first one has worn off. Now and then I have a fragrance-free day.

    At least 2- 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening after a shower. Sometimes I will wear a third if the mood feels right and a scent has faded enough.

    2, sometimes 3 depending on the scents. I work out before showering in the morning (sent 1), then my daily scent (#2), and if it's faded then after dinner is #3. This is a fairly new 'schedule' as I used to only wear one per day. The nice thing about this new schedule is that #1 and #3 can be short-longevity scents. I've found that poor longevity no longer turns me off from buying a particular bottle.

    At least 2, morning and night. Some days I go a little OCD and just keep layering.

    I usually wear anywhere between one and three on an average day, as my mood takes me.


    Sampling is a different story though.

    Just one.

    But when I was working I often changed my scent after coming home, so then it was two.

    Usually one. Most fragrances cling to my skin for long enough that it would interfere with a second SotD, but sometimes I end up showering and reapplying or layering when I'm in the mood.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Same here.

    If I'm at home and it's a non-sampling day, I typically will wear three - morning, afternoon, and evening scents. If I'm substitute teaching or out doing other things, then two. One in the morning that lasts all day, and one for the evening after I get home and freshen up. It's not that I'm so programmed about it, it's just that if I have a choice I'll reach for different scents at various times of the day.

    I to 3 a day depending on what I am doing. If I 'm going to the gym- it's something not too offensive ! Then ,in the afternoon, I usually wear what I really want and sometimes in the evening, I change .
    If I'm at home, I'll blast away with scent others don't really like or are too strong.
    On a shopping trip , oh my - I go nuts. Lots of trips to the restroom to wash it testers and continue.

    Usually one but sometimes a second one later on in the day.

    Like rogalal, as many as possible when I'm out shopping!

    Depends on the longevity of the scent, of course, but generally

    AM
    Early afternoon
    After work
    Bedtime

    I tend to have dry skin, so I can do several a day, usually. A minimum of 3 unless I'm testing.
    I envy my husband, as his oily skin keeps a scent for at least 24 hours.

    Probably one 70% of the time.

    Two 27% of the time.

    None 1% of the time.

    3 or more 2% of the time. These are days I am testing a lot or am entirely dissatisfied with my choice for the morning and have the freedom to change (e.g., on a weekend).

    What a good question!

    Two. One is applied after breakfast, then, when everyone else heads off to bed at night and I watch late, prime-time TV from the couch, I almost always apply Yves Rocher Iris Noir (which I don't care for in the daytime at all). Weird how the nose gets circadian cravings.

    Default Re: How many different scents do you wear...

    I wear one after my shower in the morning every day.

    Depending on how much is left when I get home at night I'll wear another or test two or three to get initital impressions on my skin before giving them a full wear.

    Default Re: How many different scents do you wear...

    Usually one. But sometimes I test another one on my arm after work. And sometimes I reapply the scent of the day. Now when I'm wearing odalisque it's a bit difficult to test because odalisque still smells after more than 13 hours. and I don't have to reapply either.

    Usually just one. I may do another SotE if I shower in the evening or really can't detect anything left over from my SotD. Once in a while I crave something to put on before bed, but I'll more frequently use some lavender hand cream to sleep in.

    In general, one. However, I will often test drive scents before I work out in the morning so then it might be two more before I shower. In the evening if I am going out I will also put on a fresh one. Sadly, that isn't often enough!

    Usually, one after my morning shower and one after my evening shower, a bedtime, comforting scent.

    Agree with this, I find it has faded enough by evening that I either shower it off or reapply over the top of the old. On occasion I layer it up for a different scent altogether. I also like to use good scented lotions to layer scents and the effect is very pleasing. When I shift or move I can smell the different fragrances coming off my skin and so do other people. It adds a whole new aspect to my skin scent that is very noticable. Plus hydrated skin shines, so I highly suggest finding a lotion that works for you and then putting perfume on your clothing and personally I scent my hair as well. Because my hair is long, when I turn it swings or swishes in the air and I leave a scent trail behind me when I walk. I always have people I don't know approach me in the public to tell me how good I smell. So what I'm doing must be working for everyone else as well.

    Default Re: How many different scents do you wear...

    Zero to three.

    On a three day, it would be morning, evening, and bedtime.

    This isn't including things like scented bath oil and bubble bath. Then I'd have to up it to five some days.

    Default Re: How many different scents do you wear...

    One, usually.

    Sometimes none (if I'm super focused/forgetful/ill). And sometimes no perfume, but definitely scented (when I work at our compounding department or lab).

    Rarely, I might switch somewhere along the line; maybe evening scent craving, or a different flavour for going out.

    Sampling is a different situation of course.

  27. #27

    Default Re: How many different scents do you wear...

    Normally just one, but sometimes two.

    Usually one. Sometimes two if I go out in the evening and want smth stronger.

    Default Re: How many different scents do you wear...

    I typically put on one fragrance in the morning, which I consider my SotD. In the afternoon, if the scent has sufficiently worn off, I put on something else that I hope would be complementary. (Occasionally if I wear something especially tenacious, like a Guerlain, Montale or PdE, I skip the PM scent.) When I get home and if I have new untested samples, which is almost always, I may skin test two scents, one on each arm. And then some perfume oil before bed time.

    So, on average 3 to 5.

    Most days lately, 2. One in the morning before I go to work and another before my husband comes home. Because I apply so early in the morning (about 6 AM), it's usually well gone by the second go around. I have a ton of samples to try out while I'm trying to learn perfume so sometimes I do try more. Although the Chanel Cristalle EDT I put on this morning has had amazing staying power on my camisole, so I haven't reapply lest I aggravate my perfume allergies with too much scent.
