    Default What's a good fragrance to spray on your sheets

    I enjoy me and my bed smelling good before I go to sleep. Does anyone else do this and if so what do you recommend as a good scent to fall asleep to

    I personally don't but mikeperez23 has posted I believe in another thread that he does
    this often. Perhaps he'll see this and give you some good suggestions.

    I don't care for scent on fabric in general. For that reason, I use I unscented laundry soap. Fragrance on skin is my thing.

    l agree. My favourites are Samsara, L'Heure Bleue, & Vanillary by Gorilla Perfumes. All of these are like aromatherapy for me. Sweet dreams guaranteed.

    My wife recommends lavender for sleeping - she'll even use a sachet of lavender sometimes. And she loves when I spray citrus or neroli fragrances before bed. Creed Bois de Cedrat or Neroli Sauvage are good, but any really pure and clean citrus scent is great for spraying sheets.

    Being more serious, Hydrosols are pretty inexpensive.

    Lavender
    Bergamot
    Cardamom

    Instead of spraying perfume you could buy linen spray scents.
    Buy essential oil of your choice & mix it with water in a spray bottle.

    You can get one of those amber balls from Aedes and put it between the pillows next to the headboard as I do. Or put a lavender sachet there, if you prefer. I like to use different perfumes before I go to sleep so I'm not locked in to any one scent.

    Thanks, you know, I bought one of these and then I realized if I stuck it in a drawer I would never get to enjoy it. Since it is expensive, I ended up putting it in the bed. Not to put too fine a point on it, it makes for great fart defense in the middle of the night.

    Definitely. You find out by experimenting with different ones. On sheets I usually like orientals. I don't do it as much anymore because I like time away from smelling perfumes. I once went through a couple of bottles of Habit Rouge edt pretty fast. Love that one on the sheets. I used Musc Ravageur and variety of others. Great fragrance that I'd rather smell on sheets than wear on myself due to its semi-cloying type nature. Same could be said for a lot of rich and great smelling orientals.

    Frederic Malle En Passant

    I love this perfume beyond measure, but I rarely want it as my smell, I've found. I've used it to scent my room or bedding at times, and it's eminently soothing.

    Never tried this so far, but if it were the case, would choose a clean, simple, fresh, almost laundry-like fragrance along the lines of (but not limited to) Boss Elements Aqua, Gabriela Sabatini Wild Wind, Kenzo PH and so on.

    Perhaps something like Lanvin L'Homme, very clean, fresh, lavender and not too strong.

    Try Booster from Lacoste. It's hard to find, but worth the effort. It's a eucalyptus fragrance that smells very natural and at the same time is not overpowering. Good for sweet dreams.

    You put the amber ball at the headboard, between the pillows, not...anywhere uncomfortable. It's really quite pleasant. Don't be afraid.

    I often put perfume on my sheets, as I love the smells and it keeps me away from the chatter in my head, which keeps me awake. I use different scents depending on my mood, but I seem to pick up the Rose Splendid a lot. While vintage shopping I picked up a bottle of The healing garden's zzz therapy and used it last night. I worked very well.
