    Default What Do You Wear Purely For Your Own Enjoyment, while you are alone...?

    Maybe it's a stinker, maybe it's something too strange or avant garde for other people, too complicated or perhaps it has such an intense personal meaning or association that you don't like to share the experience... perhaps you like to wear it for meditative reasons, because it calms you or soothes you... Maybe it's too beautiful or perhaps a little feminine or even embarrassing for some reason.

    What perfume/cologne do you wear purely for your own enjoyment when you know you'll have time to be alone?


    For me it's Rose Ikebana from the Hermessence range. I wear it when I have some spare time alone because it's so light and faint that I need to concentrate on it to really enjoy it, but in doing so I feel incredibly rewarded by how cleansing and delicate it is. I also think it's a touch too feminine on me, which actually doesn't bother me (I wear things which I'm sure are much more feminine in company from time to time) but this a different kind of feminine, it reminds me very much of a special kind of young woman and I enjoy following her in my imagination while I chase Rose Ikebana on my skin. There's also something intensely peaceful and joyful about the zing and fizz of Rhubarb and Prosecco and Roses in RI which I find really mentally refreshing and I like the sense of gentle invigoration RI imparts to me when ever I get a rare chunk of spare time alone to wear it.

    Probably Caron Pour un Homme.

    Tubereuse Criminelle and Carnal Flower. they're both too femme for my particular style of casual dress, so I just get samples of them and wear them occasionally by myself. I love Tuberose, after falling in love with Windsor, am looking for another masculine fragrance which uses Tuberose well.

    I've tried Richard james Savile Row and Washington Tremlett Black Tie, and those aren't quite it.

    on the flipside, there are resinous evergreen scents I find too oldschool, but love to wear by myself....Hermes Rocabar, Creed's Epicea, Marc jacobs bang. I'm working on a better version of the aspects of those three I like, combined into a more contemporary scent.
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    English Leather, Brut & Old Spice (not at the same time). Basically dime store colognes because I always feel the need to wear a cologne or I'll feel naked. It's part of my daily routine. And yes, I truly enjoy them.
    My top 5 changes like the Tennessee weather.

    Welcome to the tuberose freaks club!
    I personally am not ashamed to wear Carnal Flower in public, rather very proud of it! Jasmine is a very traditional smell here in Spain, and thus tuberose fits the bill as well, I believe.
    Dullah, you might want to give PG's Tubereuse Couture a try. It's a bit more candy-like, but as to your private pleasure, I think you may be very satisfied.

    All of my scents are fair game to be worn in public.

    There's nothing in your collection which is for any reason an entirely private pleasure then?

    Same as Petruccijc, but I find that I usually wear Fracas and AG Songes to bed!

    Caron's En Avion extrait. I find it is so feminine that it is challenging to wear around others. The only fragrance about which I have felt this. Shalimar, Mitsouko, etc, are all unchallenging in comparison.

    I ONLY wear scents for my own pleasure, at home or in public. Why else would you wear them? There are relatively few I wear at work but otherwise I wear anything I want whenever I feel like it.
