    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.

    All day every day. Usually 2 different ones each day. Sometimes 3 in a day.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Generally only when I gotta go out. Other wise I only normally tend to only wear at home when im trying something out and procrastinate about how much I like it or whether or not I think it might offend someone so usually or think what sorta occasion I might wear it. Saying that maybe 3-4 times a week.

    If sampling then I wear a few. Normal days consist of one scent in the morning, possibly another one in the evening, and a dab or two of oud oil(s).

    Every day and the same scent. I do not change
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Every day, usually just one fragrance, but if I'm going on in the evening - I usually apply something different after showering, something I think may be more appropriate for a "night out" vs sitting at home or office-safe option.

    Every day, as someone else said it is just a part of my everyday grooming, sometimes by season occasionally by mood or who I am going to be around so I guess that would be for occasion - if I wear a "cheapie" during the day or to class and I am doing something more dressy later or in the evening I will wear something better. ( I don't do a lot of "formal" affairs anymore) - after any shower I throw something on is an easy way of saying it.
