    Default Sleeping scents

    Do any of you wear fragrance when you go to bed?
    And if so what do you wear?
    I think I'm gonna try to put on something tonight.
    Goodnight!

    I sometimes wear Caldey Island Lavender as I find it calming.

    I prefer lighter and citrucy frags for my sleep frag of the night.

    Once wore 12 sprays of Kouros before sleeping and that was painful to my nose - just kidding......

    When I travel I usually apply Lolita Lempicka au Masculin before going to sleep. Sleep great. When not away, I currently vary between Cuba Tiger, L'eau par Kenzo PF, Oxygene by Lanvin, Perfect Potion's Outdoor and Bath and Body Works Cool Citrus Basil body spray depending on my mood. Basically, I wear anything that will relax me.

    I like HM a lot.

    I also wore Tuscan Leather to bed last night. I thought it was so cool to be smelling of leather even though I was just in my boxers. The lady was not as impressed.
    Waking up the next morning like rasberries was quite a trip too. That frag has the strangest drydown...

    Sometimes I will do this to test a scents longevity. This way I can go a prolonged period without consciously knowing its there and I dont have to worry about nose fatigue from smelling it idly while I test it. Not sure if it is the best way to test but I dont see a problem with it unless you somehow rub it off.

    Curiously, the human sense of smell turns off at night, hence the reason for smoke alarms.... If I'm sleeping alone, I tend toward something like Antidote or Cologne Gingembre; if I'm with my wife, I tend to be fragrance-free.

    I usually do my testing of frags at night for longevity and progress of the notes

    I usually take a shower right before I go to bed and like being fragrance free. My wife wears the body creams to bed and I like the way she smells.

    Any given SOTD/SOTE.

    I guess that, on some level, I consciously or unconsciously chose my fragrances because most, if not all of them, while not literally "putting me to sleep", they still are relaxing and/or comforting enough to create a mood/a feeling/a sensation which more or less directly favors a calming and consistent sleep.

    From a purely aromatherapeutic perspective I would go with something lavender and vanilla scented. Although typically thought of as an energizing fragrance, I find mint a relaxing scent as well. As for me, I tend to use the period between showering and falling asleep to test new frangrances and samples, so, I quite often go to bed with multiple fragrances on.

    Yes, I like to waft off in a fog of fragrance. It used to be Caravelle Epice now its the Amouage that I wouldn't wear outside; 'Gold'. But anything will do. The samples are calling, good night.

    So, I thought this was a weird concept and then I tried wearing Herba Fresca to bed the last two nights and I slept really good both nights...I don't know if it was the fragrance or just coincidence but it was an interesting observation.

    I tend to favor mild, round compositions rather than the bright, sharp ones I wear when going about my day. Lately Bond I <3 NY for All is a fav. It's rather unremitting in its creamy sweetness so nighttime is perfect since I'm just lulled to sleep by it and wake up with a whiff.

    Default Re: Sleeping scents

    One light spray of Shalimar parfum or a good spray of M7 usually does the trick...
    My Top 10

    1. Amouage Homage Attar
    2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
    3. YSL M7
    4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    5. Chanel Egoiste
    6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
    7. Amouage Epic Man
    8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
    10. Serge Lutens - Chergui

    I've taken to wearing Tam Dao to bed most nights. I find its cedar/sandalwood very relaxing and meditative. Occasionally Les Zazous and Antidote. Les Zazous is a very powdery lavender, which I enjoy but find too powdery to wear for a full day. And there's just something about the Antidote, it's another one I enjoy but not always for a full day.
