    Default How many fragrances can you wear in a day?

    Just out of total curiosity, I was wondering how many fragrances you guys do wear or have worn in a day?

    It's been something on my mind recently. Sometimes I get up in the morning, shave, then splash on some old barbershop aftershave like Aqua Velva or Skin Bracer for example (if you count those), I'll have breakfast and shower maybe 30 minutes later, get properly dressed and spray on another "good" fragrance on myself..

    The day goes on, maybe 5.30-6.00. Depending on the longevity of the fragrance, of course.. if it's gone I'll scrub myself down and give a few sprays of something else, maybe if something has arrived in the mail that I'm eager to try out..

    8.00-9.00 I'll maybe go for a walk/run or lift for an hour, I'll come home again (possibly shave and aftershave again, although I very rarely shave twice in a day, just maybe a date or special social event or something) 95% of days I shave just once, some days I'll even skip to give my skin a break. Anyways, shower again a little while later, out, get dressed (if I'm going out) or get ready for bed, then I'll spray something on again. If there's a mild skin scent even after showering of one fragrance I'll stick to a similar "genre".

    So on my total maximum, if you count aftershave, that's actually five fragrances in a day! Which upon thinking about, kind of seems like alot! If you're not counting the pre-shower aftershaves I guess you could say three maximum, depending on numerous factors, showering, longevity, etc. Which over a long day considering lots of showers I don't think it sounds too bad. That is my maximum though, I'd say 90% of days I'll wear two fragrances.. A scent for the day.. and a scent for the evening..

    Just wondering how may fragrances other Basenoters get through in a day, or have gotten through in a day!

    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    2 has been my max.

    When testing at stores, it's not uncommon for me to have 3 fragrances on: 1 on the neck for my usual SOTD, 1 on each wrist for testing.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    I have a 2016 resolution to wear more perfume, so I try to put on something new every few hours. Hopefully things that layer well. It works for me.

    I've done 3 different full wearings in a day a couple of times....but generally two would be about it.

    But when I get home I do like to spray sample on me....I've done as many as 8 different frags on different body parts at once, so I could smell and see how they all developed. Gotta admit it was a bit of overkill and usually stick to no more than 4 different ones a night now

    Usually 1 but sometimes I apply a different fragrance in the evening after the first one dies out.
    I think the most I've done is three, but there were showers in between to wash them off.

    Recently I've been thinking that I have so many fragrances that I should wear 2 a day to really get around to all of them more often.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Almost always one a day for me, applied in the morning. I'll put on something else if I am going somewhere in the evening, but that's a rare occurrence.

    No more than 2, but it depends on longevity. If it's a great performing fragrance, then only 1.

    Usually 1 but reapply the fragrances which have poor longevity. Sometimes I wear a different one after shower.

    Default Re: How many fragrances can you wear in a day?

    99% of the time I only wear one per day. Sometimes I will test something with 1 spray in the evening. I guess I could really get by with a sote on most days.

    1 a day, mostly. I do strongly prefer ones that last whole working day (less to worry about at the office) and many of those last well into the evening. For narrowed down samples it's the same, for narrowing down samples usually 2-3, on wrists and neck.

    Usually two when it comes to full wear. Sometimes when I'm testing can be up to four (not full wears) but that's rarely.
