    Default Can you smell your own scent all day?

    As the topic states, how many of you can smell what you're wearing all day, everyday? Which scents can you and cant you smell? And where do you spray?

    Default Re: Can you smell your own scent all day?

    Some frag's I can smell all the time and others the scent just comes and goes throughout the day as my nose gets accustomed to the frag. I usually spray the chest and lower neck, only Amouage Dia and Santal Noble I have problems with not been able to smell them that much.

    Only a few frags i can smell through the whole day: some montales (blue amber, SOD, red/black/dark aoud), Patchouli Noir (il profumo), ambre russe, ambra 114, 1740, fleur de male, black orchid, TV, tom of finland (not too strong but it lasts), arabie, APLS, breath of god and Lonestar Memories. These are the ones that last most on my skin.
    ... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

    Welcome to the Bwahahaha! era...

    TUM TUM PISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Most frags I can smell all day.
    I spray enough so that I can , if faintly at least, continuously smell it for a good 6 hours if immobile.

    Default Re: Can you smell your own scent all day?

    I can smell all my fragrances while they last on my skin, except these 2:

    Cool Water: About 4 hours after application i stop to smell anything on me, but people keep commenting on the smell 6, 8, 10hours later.

    Linstant Extreme: This is almost unbelievable. Everyone talks about its strenght and all. About 15 minutes after I cant smell ANYTHING. Even on the application I just smell some chocolate with woods.
    But people comment on the smell on me 13 hours later or even more!

    I can smell most Amouages (other than my Opus IV which disappears after 4 hours), as for the other frags, it's usually hit and miss. I do tend to prefer the long-lasting ones and drop the ones that disappear unless it's total love (as with Amouage O VI).

    I can smell Cool Water about 6 hours later when I do 1 spray to my chest and 1 to each wrist but can't really smell it 3 hours later if I apply to the front of my neck as well

    I can smell most of fragrances, but I also have weak scents in my wardrobe, like L'Homme by YSL, so I reapply mid-day if I don't smell it anymore.

    All day, in varying degrees of intensity or faintness. Otherwise, there would be no point owning it.

    Especially if the scents are powerhouse/strong/with extreme longevity ingredients (leather, musk, amber etc.), usually yes.

    I'll second that.

    My trick for avoiding nose fatigue - only spray on the chest under the shirt. Works for me with almost all my fragrances. Not quite sure why, but it does.

    How good is black pepper for longevity? Or any pepper at that. I noticed Carolina Herrera likes to use pepper in her scents and they all seem to last quite long and project well

    I've tried this now and I must say it does work. Though I spray my wrists as well. I put my shirt on immediately after I spray to get some on the shirt also.

    Where is it good to spray to avoid nose fatigue and get good projection/sillage?

    Default Re: Can you smell your own scent all day?

    I usually do 2 sprays to the chest and will get whiffs of it during the day - also depends on longevity of the fragrance you're using.

    What are the chances of applying a scent with good longevity/projection, 2 or 3 sprays to the neck and possibly 2 or 3 times a week and not being able to smell it?

    I can smell Aventus all day. This stuff is crazy. Green Irish Tweed is another one I can smell pretty much all day. And can't forget about A Men.

    Is it not more about where you spray it rather than what you spray? Remember we're talking about whether you can smell your own scent, not scents which other people can smell and generally project and last well

    Yes, I usually get used to whatever I'm wearing, so doubling up on the back of my hand lets me smell it all day. I probably look pretty foolish if anyone actually pays attention to me always raising my hand to my nose.

    A few fragrances I can delightfully smell throughout the day, ie. Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Most I do not smell after several hours.

    Are these the scents that your nose doesn't get used to?
