    Default Fragrance and Hair

    I have heard that fragrance lasts longer if it is on hair or clothing. Do you guys ever put fragrance in your hair?

    You can spray into the air, then walk through it, to see if you like that application better.

    Yes, although I have a pretty much shaved head, fragrance does seem to last longer on the last vestiges which abide on my head.

    Yes, I do apply to clothing if I have any issues with longevity. I have also applied some frags to my hair. And yes, this works to increase longevity.

    When I used to have slightly-longer-than-shoulder-length hair, I would spray around my neck area and intentionally get some on my hair. I've since had my hair cut short, and I don't really have the habit of spraying onto my head.

    So now, no.

    If wearing fragrance oils, I'll run a little swipe through the beard. Throughout the day it'll rub into the collar of my shirt a bit. I seem to get better longevity out of the frag this way.

    I always spray fragrance on my hair (worn in a chin-length bob). It does last much longer that way, and also diffuses better and gives more sillage. I also get a different effect than when I spray it on skin, probably because the composition evaporates more slowly and because it comes from a different distance than when I smell my wrist.
    And since I wash my hair every day, it's better than spraying clothes, where the scent will stick around, sometimes even after a wash, and interfere with other scents I'm wearing.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I was thinking the exact same thing. LOL... Maybe I can spray my beard, although the thought of scent emanating from around my mouth sounds weird!

    LOL! But it's true, from my experience. Whenever an ex-girlfriend wears a Montale, her scent fills the room. No such luck with Mr No.1, even after applying twice as much...

    Yes, occasionally I do spray some fragrance on my hair, both the lasting power and the projection of the frag being quite good after such procedure

    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
