    I wear maximum two different fragrances per day, and usually I take a shower between the two.
    At the weekends I tend to wear only one fragrance per day.

    I personally go for the high longevity ones. I want something that lasts all day without re-application. However, by evening I'm ready for a change. So..almost always two in a 24 hour period, unless one is a sample I just can't imagine tolerating for a long period. Then I wash it off and replace it with a favorite. The advantage to this is that I can usually wake up the next morning and still smell the previous evening's application.

    I have two jobs, so I go out in the mornings and evenings, then I wear at least two scents a day. But I have started wearing tow, well, maybe three at a time. For example, I can wear pour Monsieur Chanel+Miss dior originale+Mitsouko+ Dior Homme Cologne in the morning, one spray each, and Coromandel+DHI, or sables+Sartorial in the evening. Sometimes there are quite a lot of heads turning around. But I want to make use of my bottles. And fast, otherwise I won't buy a new one, ever. New year resolution, it might work this year...

    I was gonna make the topic "what's the most frags you've worn in one day?" but I found this instead.

    The past 24 hours or less have been monumental for me in my fragrance wearing. I wore Roadster, L'Air du Desert Marocain, Issey Pulse of the Night, Malizia Vetyver Uomo, Gravity - in that order too. With LdDM getting the best performance for sure, Issey in second, Roadster in 3rd, Gravity (which I have on now) will probably be 4th, and Malizia Vetyver last (this has pathetic longevity, but ok in heat). So.. definitely one of my most fragrant days ever, and the diversity of these fragrances, none of them being even remotely similar to another, I'm surprised nothing mixed up on my skin. I might have gotten some of the Pulse of the Night dry down underneath the Malz Vetyver, but it wouldn't matter, since it only lasted about an hour today anyways.

    I haven't worn Gravity in so long, I forgot that even in its current reformulated days, it's still very powerful, and I oversprayed with 6 sprays for sure. It's starting to give me a headache.

    Anyways, what's the most you guys have worn in a day? Mind you, I have been up now since about 6 am yesterday, so right at the cusp of 24 hours. I have never done more than 3 in that time period, but usually it's 2.

    When I go to work and chill at home after, 1 or 2
    When I go to work and go out after, 2
    When I'm free all day usually 2
    Sometimes add a 3rd if the scent is gone, usually a cheap one that I like to smell in bed before falling asleep

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. I usually only sleep 2-4 hours at a time, but when I sleep more than that I struggle to fit more than 2 a day. That seems to be my limit.

    Almost four years on, most days, just one. Some days two. Rarely, three to five.

    Prolly 2 max for full enjoyment of each. I.e day and once that's finished, and evening one.
    Sometime I'll do testing so can have some on each wrist, back of each hand, upper forearms. I don't really count that as a proper wearing though ��

    1 to 4. Often 4. Morning, afternoon, evening and bedtime.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    One to two, but maybe more if they are short-lived colognes and I’m trying to get through some samples. To answer the question about how many I have ever worn in a day then that would be five - I recall being pretty manic that day and feeling like I wanted to smell everything all at once. Thankfully not my norm.

    I do have an evening ritual and like to try to time an evening scent so I can pay attention to it while I’m settled but awake, and then experience the dry down as I’m drifting off to sleep, and that might be my only fragrance for the day if the schedule has been full of distractions.

    I don't know where I'd have the time for more than two a day. Maybe the weekend. But I work 10 hours a day, that's one fragrance. And then I'm home for about 4 hours before going to bed. That's the second fragrance.

    1-2 shower between, usually only 1 since I work 5-6 days a week and unless I go out after work sometimes then I change for the night.

    Most ive ever worn? Ugh, maybe 6? Busy summer day with yardwork, gym, multiple showers, couple samples, and evening activities. Maybe 5?

    My general schedule is 1 at 11pm, 1 at 8 am, 1 at 4 pm. So if im on my norm its 3. Minimum of 1 shower a day. Sometimes a sampling gets mixed in wherever i can squeeze it.
