    Exclamation Relax and calming scent for bed ?

    Which is the most relax and calming scent for you?
    I need to add one to help me get to sleep.
    I mean it, I feel so tensed these days and I really need those sweet dreams.

    I would recommend anything with a good dose of lavender, I use Caldey Island Lavender during the Summer as a aid to sleep.

    There is actually one scent that I wear just for lounging and getting ready for bed, it is actually a very, very, comforting scent and it is cheap. It is Zirh by Zirh

    Trust me, it is really soothing. Smells like sprite or 7 up.

    When my kids were very young, we put them down for the night after applying baby lotion with lavender and chamomille. This was so very soothing that my wife and I began to use the same lotion ourselves as part of our bedtime sleep routine. I would recommend something like this and probably avoid applying a cologne. The Bath & Body Works stores thrive by providing this type of product.

    I personally don't use any scent for bed - just what's on my skin from the morning.

    Very much so, the black tea and cinnamon provide a relaxing effect. I think that this is what this fragrance is made for, I get very relaxed every time I wear it.

    I find lavender is fresh and wakes me up. Despite what all the aromatherapy people say.

    I like sweet mild scents for sleeping. I often reach for 1 spray of Bond No 9 I <3 NY for All.

    I dab samples of any non animalic oud like Byredo's oud immortale or accord oud on my forearm, seems to work well...GF doesn’t have any issues with this sort of frag in bed either...

    Spiritueuse Double Vanille, although I'm sampling Sweet Redemption today and the vanilla, milky note is very calming.

    I wore Reflection Man the other day, it was quite nice for bed. It reminds me of clean and fresh sheets, with a little bit of sweet creaminess, making it extremely mellow for before bed.

    I honestly like wearing a spray or two of Black Afghano before bed, it really is nice.

    aveda men pure-formance is what you are looking for...

    it is a very "spa" relaxing fragrance and uses only natural oils. It's great, fantastic afterna bath / shower.

    I looked it up and saw it does use natural oils, but I couldn't find any info on it made with all natural oils, can you elaborate on that or link me?

    Even some of the most "natural" fragrances still use synthetic ingredients as well.

    In the perfume guide of 2009 Luca Turin did a write up of it, and in the book, he cites a conversation with the perfumer, Koichi Shiozawa, who said that Aveda demanded he limit himself not only to all natural materials, but "organic"... i took this to mean non-synthetic... unless I am misunderstanding the definition of organic!

    At any rate if you go onto amazon and find the 2009 turin / sanchez book, you should be able to do a search for "aveda" and read Turin's review.

    Whatever the case may be, it is a very relaxing scent, almost like wearable aromatherapy... if you live near an aveda you should be able to go and test it before you buy it (would not recommend blind buy).

    Ateleier Cologne Orange Sanguine. Like the smell of oranges in the morning.

    The dry downs of pure havane or malt are really snuggly/calming I think. So is bond no 9 new harlem.

    Any scent with an abundance of lavender or even vanilla. I enjoy Mouchoir de Monsieur or Jicky, and also Pour Un Homme.

    That said, any fragrance you find comforting.

    Yes -

    I like what Primrose says here...I adore Pour Un Homme by Caron (to the OP, karon), but also a nice splash of the beautiful, light Agua Lavanda by Puig. Layered is wonderful, but alone Agua Lavanda before bed is very nice (about 30 minutes - 1 hour of wear before it fades)...which is perfect, as it drifts off with you.

    Another scent I like in the evenings and before bed is Monsieur Musk - I find it is very soothing. I have Original Houbigant, a bottle by Parquet and a very early Dana bottling that smells fantastic (not the latest formulation). Very nice scent that has nice warmth, rich aromatics but everything is 'dimmed', dark and rather calming.

    A final suggestion - as you may not be going to bed alone...Vintage Kouros. It is olfactory foreplay and only gets better when released with body heat.

    Cheers,

    ericrico

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
