    Default How often do you wear a fragrance?

    I am curious to see when everyone wears a frag. I wear something almost every single day whenever I step out of the house, work, or hanging out. When I go out on weekends I tend to pick something on the more powerful side or stuff I don't wear as much. Its funny that everytime I smell my vintage DHI all I think of is alcohol because that's always my night out scent haha. If I don't wear a fragrance when going out I feel naked which I almost never forget. Some people take long to get ready because they don't know what to wear, I take longer because I stand infront of all my frags and can't decide what to use. Lately I have been reaching for Chergui, Pure malt, 24 gold, Odin 01 (terrible performance, still love it though :] ) and creed os. Also do you wear fragrances according to their seasonal recommendation's for wearing? Out of my estimated 40 different frags I own, I can say that 90 percent of them are strictly cold weather scents or all season scents that are more towards the colder weather but get a hot and warm weather pass. I mean summer of 2013, I was reaching for pure malt and 1 million all the time, and the occasional la nuit de lhomme. All examples of stuff that should not be worn in summer heat! I am just not a fan of aquatics, they all seem to smell the same to me for the most part. I love my nautica voyage though.

    I wear scent daily, using two to three different ones each day. One in the morning, one in the afternoon and one at bedtime, though sometimes one of those times is a repeat.

    I usually give my nose a day off, one time a week.
    Sometimes the mood is "nothing".

    Almost every day. I wear several samples at a time though when I am sampling.

    Default Re: How often do you wear a fragrance?

    One for the work day. I consider how it will impact those around me so light, casual, 1 spray.
    One for the evening. Something warm, relaxing, comfortable, not too challenging, 2 sprays.
    Weekends are wide open. Usually 3 full sprays as I dont have to consider impacting others. Weekends are my free scent time.
    I dont really follow seasonal choices. I have worn Hermes Le Nil and Creed VIW in the very cold winter.

    Putting on a fragrance is the finishing touch on getting ready every morning.

    Unless I am sick, about every day.

    Almost daily. Never wore multiple scents per day so far, the respective SOTD is usually more than enough for me.

    For 59.5 years, I never wore fragrance. At all.

    For the last several months, I have worn at least 1 every day. I wear an office appropriate scent to work, unless I am going to be in court. . Some days, if my office scent is spent, I slap on another for the evening hours! Life is good!

    5 days on (week days) and mostly 1-2 days off. Good to give the nose a break from all these chemicals.

    Every single damn day brotha! And usually multiple ones per day. I love to spray a couple different ones on after a long day of work, and just sit there watching TV or a movie sniff'in my hands/arms truly marveling how wonderful each scent is.

    I would say 6 days a week. There's always that one day of the week where I am at home doing homework, watching movies or hitting the gym. I dub that as my olfactory reset day. During those 6 days, one scent for the day and one to bed that my girlfriend prefers.

    If I'm feeling good, usually most every day. I might take 1-2 days off a week. I usually just wear one fragrance per day unless I put something else on going to the gym.

    If I don't wear one it's likely because I forgot, and I hate it when I'm already gone from home and I realize that I forgot. It's rare but it happens.

    You can count me in as an addict. All day, everyday. Often times my sotd, and then I wear something to sleep. If it's a day I'm staying home, I wear something. If I'm going out, I wear something. Sometimes I even wear a scent just when I'm going for a swim, even though the chlorinated water usually washes it off eventually. If I'm out, and I forget to put something on.. I have a small arsenal of decants and mini bottles in the car to choose from, lol.
