    Default Which scent makes the best room spray

    Going to be hitting on Ross or TJ Maxx for a cheapy that can hopefully make my room smell as amazing as me. Which cheap fragrance has good longevity and projection when spray on window curtain and is an appropriate smell for a room?
    I wear fragrance to smell good to everyone, not just myself

    Probably just me, but I don't get why one would scent a room, especially if one is already Wearin a perfume of their own.

    I'll occasionally use incense, but the effect is shorter lasting and it serves to deodorize or for meditation.

    Why not considering the room sprays and candles commonly available with good scents and longevity?

    I don't know such a scent. Certainly can think of most cologne I don't want around in my house. Portrait of a Lady is one I love the smell of for a house.

    But I'm into bakhoor and frankincense. I find them far beyond anything for the house. Last resort, incense sticks.

    I used Eau de Cartier when we sold our last home. Just before people would come in to look. I also occasionally spritzed a little Silver Mountain Water. These are exceptionally fresh scents.

    At the discount stores I'd reach for CK. Namely Eternity and One.

    If I like it enough to scent a room why would I waste it as an air freshener?
    Anyway, I use essential oils. I bought a bunch of them from TJ Maxx.

    Waste of a fragrance, but a cheap lavender water could work.

    Guess that any fragrance tolerable enough to freshen up the rooms without smelling in any way stuffy, unpleasant, allergy-inducing, nauseating or simply otherwise off, but still not that good to be worth its initial, more usual and more predictable task

    Citrus fragrances like Blenheim Bouquet or ADP Colonia tend to work well, though they are fleeting. Chanel Pour Monsieur provides a three dimensional smell when used as a room spray, probably from the citrus, verbena, vetiver and oakmoss.

    Depends on the room one wants to scent, but in general, citrus scents work well.

    This one sounds like a good suggestion...and I would think any of the Bulgari tea series would work really well. Personally, I've used Encre Noire for this purpose and it lasted for ages.

    Don't use them for room sprays. I use Diptyque scented candles.

    I usually spray Insurrection Pure II as I only wear Aventus once every week or two, but I love the smell. When I'm getting ready in the morning, a few sprays in the bathroom is very nice! Can't beat the price either ($20 shipped for 100ml).

    I sometimes use scents that I will never finish a bottle of by wearing. In my case it is often Nicole Farhi Pour Homme, Eternity, a recent formulation of Paco Rabanne pour Homme , CK Euphoria or even Dior Homme, as I have a couple of bottles.

    I wouldn't buy a bottle of any fragrance for that purpose - there are a LOT of products on the market already specifically designed for scenting a room.

    And I also wouldn't recommend spraying your window curtains - it may leave behind a small stain, etc.
    Current Winter Favorites:

    1. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
    2. Brückner - Aoud 1
    3. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    4. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Generation Man
    5. Creed - Royal Oud
    6. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    7. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Mortal Skin
    8. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions

    APOM Pour Homme is pretty good.

    Especially if the curtains are exposed to sunlight. You'll be sorry.

    i remember i couldn't like Rose 31 for the longest time because it smelled (smells) EXACTLY like this room spray that Banana Republic used to sell in the 90's.
