    Not really, though I think twice before leaving the house wearing Le male.

    I wear everything in public with some consideration when I am flying, which I do every week, or when I am in church. I just limit the number of sprays and/or just spray on my chest for projection beasts such as Black Aoud, Mancera Sand aoud, black afgano or funky arabian oils.

    Leather Oud is something I don't wear a lot in public... It's something that I only reach for on occasion.

    CK One. I still consider it one of the most adorable scents ever created, but... well, you know. I wear it for kicking around the house when I'm in the mood.

    No, but I won't wear some in close confined spaces with a lot of people. I get tired of the murmurings I hear in Church or a meeting if I have Montale Cuir d'Arabie on...

    ^^ was going to say Le Male also. Teenagers and middle aged men on the prowl render it a bit too common.

    Cool Water would be another one but I'm not wearing/owning it anymore as it fell out of favour.

    Truth be told, I don't wear many fragrances out of the house. I wear them so I may enjoy them.

    Samples! I don't usually wear them in public until I've had a chance to get to know how they wear on my skin.

    There's nothing that I would strictly not wear in public, but there are a few that I think twice about. Cuir de Russie, definitely. Heavy stuff, rich, with a thick leather that borders on refined and animalistic. Portrait of a Lady is a bit safer, but I still give it some thought. Black Aoud, which I sold soon after buying it just because I wasn't sure I could wear it too often.

    Yep. Quorum - I only wear when I want to be antisocial.

    Habit Rouge and Tom Ford Noir are disliked by a lot of
    people I socialize with, so I am safer around them. I save
    them for special occasions.

    The VoIce of Reason by Lush might also be worn strategically.

    I have few fragrances that I consider suitable for all occasions. Some I like to wear when I'm at home, some only to work, some when socializing. Many are suitable for more than one setting, but - yes - there are some that I don't wear outside the house much or at all.

    It's like clothes - I don't wear a suit to the park and I don't wear pajamas to work. Some frags are grey suits and some are flannel PJs.

    I think things I don't wear out to public are not because they are too daring or but rather, I have much better alternatives to those scents.

    For example. I don't think I'd be wearing Claiborne Sport or Burberry Weekend out to public because I would reach for CK one, Azzaro Chrome, or Issey Miyake for fresh scents.

    Went out with a good few swipes of Ensar Oud Assam Organic the other day, farmyard to the max, and enjoyed every whiff...

    I actually don't wear about half of my collection in public due to:me out growing the scent, it being too feminine, not lasting long on me and various reasons.

    What is the point of having a fragrance if you don't wear it out..?
