    Default Should I Wear Cologne Every Day?

    Is it better to wear colognes every day or to use a nice scented deodorant with the occasional cologne instead?

    It's up to you. I wear fragrance every day, I don't feel completely dressed without it. (And I use unscented deo.)

    tott is right. Wear it when you feel like it. I wear mine most days too, unless I'm having allergy/sinus issues (or a cold). Most of my wardrobe is built of nice everyday frags, nothing too formal.

    But, bottom line, it's completely up to you.

    Cologne everyday. Unscented deodorant. Why: deodorant never smells as nice as a good cologne and neither will you without deodorant.

    I don't own any deodorant, I wear fragrances daily, religiously. But it is absolutely up to your personal preference, no right or wrong, better or not.

    I wear 3 different ones a day everyday. Sometimes more than one at a time.

    Cologne when the mood strikes you.. it's the icing on the cake.
    Definately an unscented antiperspirant daily. Cologne is not meant to cover up those odors (big smile)

    deodorant every day... unscented though. Not that I find any scented ones have that overpowering silliage.
    I wear cologne most days, to be honest more out of hobby then necessity.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Yes!

    I wear many fragrances, every day. Life is too short, to go unscented.

    And why should you not?

    Whether you want to be scented or not, is up to you. But if you do, I'd advise that you do it with cologne instead of deodorant, and use unscented deodorant.

    Every day, unless there's some specific reason not to. Why not? If you're anything like most of us here, you probably have more than enough fragrance to last a lifetime.

    My day would be a drag if I didn't wear a fragrance.

    Yes, every day and night! Of course it's up to your personal tastes but I say yes just like the previous posters. Without it I feel I'm missing something.

    great answer! I love wearing fragrances; not so that other people can enjoy them, but so that I can. Must say that the feeling of nostalgia I get from wearing a certain fragrance is something no one can enjoy as much as me. So why not wear them every day? I wear mine after im done showering, whether im going out or not.

    All based on individual preference, do you want to smell good everyday, if so, then great! go for it! though if your worry is for holistic health benefactors then don't worry it can do no harm!

    unscented deodorant + fragrance everyday = win

    I've dug myself into such a hole that it's necessary to wear something every day just in a desperate attempt to actually use up everything I've purchased. It's probably in my best interest to stop buying such big bottles.

    The only trait I don't share with the rest of the group is the unscented deodorant. I'll assume this to mean that I'm operating the wrong way, and not getting the most out of my fragrances, but I've tried to find different deodorants that compliment different fragrances, and wear them together. The end result being an ensemble of different deodorants sorted along with an ensemble of different fragrance groups that all work together.

    I'll probably look in to unscented after looking at this post, but being an avid gamer and nerd all my life, and back in the old days being a pioneer in the creation of "nerdstank", I just don't know if I can trust unscented enough.
