Incomplete is a good way to put it
I don't feel naked, or incomplete, but I do feel like it was a missed opportunity.
I have so many fragrances that it's hard to keep everything in the rotation. Sometimes I don't get to a fragrance for over a year. If I don't wear a fragrance one day, I feel like I could have tried a sample that I haven't tried yet, or given something a wearing that I haven't worn for a long time.
Current Fall Favorites:
1. Creed - Spice & Wood
2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
3. Creed - Aventus
4. Brückner - Aoud 1
5. Dior - Vetiver
6. Armani Privè - Cedre Olympe
7. Ermenegildo Zegna - Haitian Vetiver
8. Ermenegildo Zegna - Javanese Patchouli
9. AJ Arabia - I
10. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
I don't know cos it's never happened
It just doesn't happen. Every morning, when I shower and get dressed, apply deodorant, etc., it's a step in the routine. The performance is exactly the same every morning, so I find I'm always wearing something unless I'm ill (and choose not to).
The whole time I'm not wearing anything I feel like I'm wasting the tons of juice that I have by not using it.
Yes, can leave the house with adornment on is a good habit indeed to smell good.
"Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "
The only times I'm without perfume are when I'm going out to test perfume or if I've had to dash out of the house for some sort of emergency and I've put on the first clothes that came to hand. I put on perfume after a shower even if I'm going to bed afterwards, and not putting it on makes me feel very underdressed.
Interestingly, I don't feel the same way about make up.
'I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal.'
These two comments pretty much describe me, but I'll add a caveat below...
Want a decant of Spice & Wood or Pure White Cologne? I'm looking for a small decant of Original Vetiver. Let's swap!
Nope, not at all. Having said that, I may forget on a routine weekend morning, and do later think about something I could have worn. But if I forget about it, then it must not have been that important. I wear something almost everyday, even twice a day, so to go without is out of the norm, but certainly not something that I feel is missing, just an unintended break so to speak. I do not feel naked
Odd. I'm more comfortable without pants.
A single simple smile can change the world…

"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
Sometimes, I don't feel fully dressed when I forget a fragrance.

I actually like to take little 2-3 day breaks. I find my sense of smell is much better afterwards. Plus sometimes between working in the industry, posting on basenotes, etc it's easy to get totally sucked into this tiny little world and lose touch with "normal" people who never think about scent and go about their lives just fine... try something new by not trying anything at all

Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
