    Default Where do most people wear a fragrance ?

    ...you don't understand; I think most people wear always perfumes; not only on special occasions!

    Nights out, dates, I'd say. Work too, depending on the job. Don't think most people wear them all the time, they probably just use deodorants, or nothing at all.

    More or less always. I never apply before going to bed, due to my better half being extremely scent-sensitive at night, but other than that - I try to wear them more or less all the time. I just love smelling nice.

    Depends on social class, nationality, mentality, opinion and other variables.

    Arabs wear it all the time.

    I wear frags everywhere I go and not go !

    By 'not go' I mean when I'm at home I can find excuses for wearing new frags every 5-6 hours.......

    This is why it's nice to also have boring office frags in your collection, which are inoffensive and neutral but still smell like a frag.

    Few males I know wear fragrance every day, but I guess that is just how it is in Denmark among younger men, because I rarely notice scent on other males in general, and I usually try to sniff out other peoples fragrances all the time. They usually just wear a deodorant, scented or unscented, and only wear fragrances when going out or something similar.

    This is of course solely based on my experiences with fragrances on the people I encounter in my daily life

    Most often, at least in my case, at home and/or in my home office, since I'm self employed and thus staying at home for both work and leisure, so most occasions for wearing a fragrance come up before I even consider going out

    Default Re: Where do most people wear a fragrance ?

    I think that the general public tend to break out fragrances to impress; whether that be on a night out, at an important meeting or simply to make themselves feel better/more clean. A lot of teenagers I know will wear half a can (exaggeration) of Lynx after playing sports; it's in an effort to mask body odour rather than a conscious decision to smell pleasant for the sake of it.

    Default Re: Where do most people wear a fragrance ?

    I am rather surprised at how seldom I notice males wearing a fragrance except when "dressed up/formal" or on a casual or formal 'night out.' I haven't detected many males wearing frags during the day. In my experience/observations, females tend to wear fragrances more often, both casually as well as formally. Of course, being a Basenoter, I break the trends and wear fragrance around the clock!

    I used to wear "fragrances" only in the evening for rare special occasions though of course I always had a scent from my deodorant. This is probably the most common for American men though male teenagers nowadays wear fragrances a lot more often in affluent communities. Generally I rarely notice fragrances during the day except in formal sittings (such as my current workplace) on either men or women. Decades ago it was more common for American men to have one scent that they wore almost all the time, either as a deodorant, after shave, or cologne, with perhaps something else for special occasions. My father always smelled like Old Spice, for example, and so did all his clothes.

    When I bought a bottle of Canoe recently I realized a lot of guys were wearing it (mostly at parties and such) when I was young but they never made a point of it.

    I basically wear it everyday, every occasion. But I have friends that will only wear it to go out.

    For most people: when theyre in public

    For me: anywhere.

    Haha, to be fair, the topic title was a bit ambiguous. Where I am, most guys will put on a fragrance to go out to the club or bar (lots of AdG, Code, Coolwater, etc) and most women (at least between ages 20-40) use those godawful 'body mists' from BB&B or VS, which is the feminine equivalent of AXE. I for some reason do like Lovespell- it smells like a marshmallow made of grapefruit, and is a personal weakness of mine. But yeah, I think a lot of it is cultural- fragrance is not something most Americans ponder in the shower while getting ready for the day. Which is more than fine with me.

    Not just Denmark. It is the same here. My company employs 65 people (mostly men) and I only know of 5 males that use a fragrance every day.

    Back when I had only CK one in my wardrobe, I wore it whenever I was out of the house. But I know people who only wear fragrance in special occasions. As a whole, I think place that most people wear fragrances is the clubs, next is work
