    This is not ridiculous in the slightest! I can personally attest that this really works. Even when my perfume has long disappeared from my skin (usually within hours of spraying), my hair and clothes retain it for a least a day or two; sometimes longer.

    There was a whole line of products for the hair, Guerlain for one, Stilboide Fluide pour les Cheveux ... you can see them on eBay & various other places still.

    I remember perfumeshrine doing an article about perfume for hair. Since all the IFRA stuff about sensitizing skin - the way around that is - perfume for hair as the product is meant for hair, whether there is oakmoss it or not, doesn't matter. Kind of a wayround the regulations.

    Putting fragrance in our hair? Shampoo, conditioner, highlights and all, and now perfume? Do we want to go bald faster?

    LOL... If you have hair like mine (18" long) you just put the frag on the ends. (and no reason to rub it into your scalp! But a fragranced oil might be just the ticket, monsieur (presumably)!

    I do draw the line at perms or haircolor, mostly because I'm quite comfortable with my hair the way it is. Stripey with silver over a chestnut-dark brown... when it all goes silver I'll be quite happy too.

    I'll be in the minority but I've found that a few sprays to the t-shirt work better than anything. Especially near the neck. I can smell a fragrance all day & evening doing this.

    I ALWAYS spray one time on my head, it's just amazing at which point you can smell your fragrance better. It's undoubtedly a sillage increaser, but it can also make your fragrance evolving much more different than on your skin 'cause of the heat on the head. Maybe not a very good idea if you easily sweat on there.

    Bravo for you, Luna, a silver fox!

    I spray at the nape of my neck, under the collar where the skin is warm.

    This has been suggested by very sane people. Not ridiculous.

    sounds like a great way to go bald.

    I doubt it would make your hair fall out... particularly if you have well-conditioned hair and don't spray the scent directly onto your scalp. (hair really does "hold" the scent for a long time.)

    I've been trying this for a week or so now, after having first read this thread, and it works for me. It really helps with the weaker (4-5hr) scents.

    The whole "wont it make you bald" thing doesnt worry me. After all, there is fragrance in all or most hair care products anyways.

    Thanks for the tip!

    The caveat here is the alcohol found in most fragrances; it can dry out the hair & scalp. It's the oils in hair that hold the scent.

    Sensual, yes. That's why well-conditioned hair can take and hold the scent. My hair tends toward slight oiliness anyway, but if it ever gets dry, say, over the wintertime, I use one of those leave-in conditioners like burts bees avocado once and it's back to normal. I've heard of folks using coconut oil for their hair as a conditioner, that it is very, very good for the hair, and that would also help. You can get the expeller pressed CO that doesn't have a coconut smell and use that method once a month to keep your hair silky, the hair will just drink up the oil!

    I wouldn't worry about the alcohol. It's the number one ingredient in hair spray, and close to the top of the ingredient list in hair gel. I think it evaporates too quickly to do any damage. I also don't think it reaches the scalp unless you have thin or very short hair.

    How do you keep the fragrance "true" when it mixes with the scent of your styling product(s)?

    Styling products?

    (don't use 'em myself.)

    Go for unscented styling products.
