    A few times, and then the next morning when I wash my hair I smell the fragrance that I had all forgot about. All I can say is it holds much better there than on my torso/arms/neck due to the more oily nature of the scalp.

    Back of the neck is a better place imo.

    I wouldn't want to put the expensive fragrance in my hair, but maybe the cheaper barbershop scent like Canoe would do great...

    Not directly but I have spayed the air in front of me and walked through it for that all over scent haze.

    Cologne/Perfume attaches to hair very well an it makes it last longer. (So I've heard) But I Do every now and then.

    Not to the hair on my head, but onto my hairy chest, which always seems to hold the scent longer than on my bare skin.

    If I know what I'm going to wear tends to have crappy projection or longevity, I spray the hair on the back of my head.

    Yep, same M.O. for me...at least for me, it really helps with longevity/projection-challenged scents.

    Sure. If not directly to the hair I will at least do a spray and walk into it.

    Default Re: Have you ever apply fragrance in your hair?

    Yes absolutely. But only when either the fragrance is a bit weak, or I need it to last / project more than usual: it’s much more prominent for other people when you do that than it is for you so beware of over doing it.

    It is however a really bad idea if you have a wound on your scalp, as I happen to have a the moment . . . no don’t ask.

    If the frag is really strong and it sprays out in a nice mist, you can spray the air in front of you and walk through it, getting a tiny amount in your hair. That often works very well.

    Default Re: Have you ever apply fragrance in your hair?

    I don't do this (due to product in my hair) but my wife does and it increases the longevity ten-fold. I used to spray my head when it was shaved but didn't notice much of a difference in longevity/projection, however this could have been down to our old nemesis, olfactory fatigue!

    In my experience this is something done mostly by the ladies. My ex girlfriend liked to do it. I'd rather keep my hair, thank you very much.

    Never really tried, I have pretty short hair length wise, but I will give it a shot tomorrow!

    I've done it. It does last longer, but you're not going to notice it in your sillage.

    Unintentionally, yes, but the longevity and/or projection are not that different, in comparison with the usual application in more common spots of regular spraying/dabbing

    i always put a spray to the back of my head, at the base of the hair. the heat that generates there and the hair acts as a diffuser. good stuff.
