    Default Fragrance before bed

    I don't know why I do this. I sometimes put a fragrance on just as I'm going to bed. I live alone, so I wonder if it's there to keep me company.

    Anyway, was wearing Ambre 114 all day, and now right before bed I put on Mecca Balsam.

    I enjoy it also. Just a form of adding to, and enjoying, the peace and relaxation. I also enjoy sampling fragrances at bedtime.

    I would probably do it a lot more if I slept alone.

    You’re not alone. Best part is waking up to an awesome drydown.

    I sometimes do it, usually eau de colognes or lavender scents or something calming.

    Perfume enhances every experience, including sleep.
    I tend to prefer a body lotion at night (The White Company
    White Lavender and Neroli is a current favourite) or I sometimes
    apply a light fragrance such as Clarins Eau Ressourcante or Les
    Nereides Douceur de Vanille.

    I spray Creed Original Vetiver once on my chest before bed.

    I sometimes do that as well, esp. in winter. Usually something snuggly, like Cornubia.

    I just let my SOTE last through until the next morning.

    I do. It’s a form of aromatherapy for me. More often than not it’s dab of Shalimar parfum or Egyptian Goddess.

    No specific plan here either, personally just letting the SOTE on applied earlier that evening

    I do this sometimes to test a fragrance's longevity. If I can still smell it when I wake up (about 8 hours), I know it has some beast to it.

    I prefer not wearing frags to bed. I take a shower and don't want to apply anything to myself when it comes to bed in that case.

    Before work and testing during the day, sure! Right before bed, nah.

    I apply a fragrance before bed quite often, usually an hour or more before bedtime so I can enjoy it's development first (sometimes a different scent on each wrist)

    That's basically what I do especially for more challenging fragrances. I can't wear them to work so to get a good feel for them I'll enjoy them for an hour or so before bed and when I wake up I get to experience the drydown with no olfactory fatigue to see it's development (or if it lasts5-6 hours).

    This is exactly what I do. I can also sniff it throughout the night as I wake up to test development as well.

    I'm not allowed to wear anything at work - so bedtime spraying is the only spraying I do.

    Wearing a fragrance to bed is pretty much my way of telling whether or not particular scent is a keeper or not.

    Sometimes l just continue to enjoy my SOTE, & sometimes l wait until my other half has gone to sleep so l can wear one of my more stinky fragrances to bed. lt's one of the only times l get to enjoy the stuff he hates without him realising. He gets up really early for work during the week, so he's often asleep before l am.

    l also like to spray the upper edge of the duvet now & then: the bit that's right under my nose. Samsara & L'Heure Bleue are my favourites for soothing me to sleep, & for sniffing when l wake during the night.

    I occasionally wear scent to bed. Lately it’s been Terre d’Hermes, preceded by Mechant Loup. Formerly, it was mostly Jicky or L’Air du Desert Marocain.

    For sure. Shalimar Eau de Cologne by Guerlain is my standard for bed time.

    Amber 114, Creed PwC and Tauer Phi are my favorites for that right now. I have my bedroom decked out in Molton Brown's Rose Absolute so I don't do it too much anymore.

    I shower at night, and I usually end up spraying some Azzaro Pour Homme on after my shower. Clean, soapy, spicy. Nice to go to bed as it's drying down a couple hours later.

    I smell it in the night and it wakes me up, so not any more.

    I do a lot of sampling at night when I'm sitting in bed surrounded by my samples boxes and with my computer in my lap. It's a treat---something I look forward to. And I love waking up in the morning smelling great.

    I do this every night. Sometimes because I just want to keep sampling but Ive run out time in the day to do so, other times for aromatherapy/calming or once in awhile as a trip down memory to remember the smell of a past loves and crushes. Still haunted by the summer of 85 and that girl that smelled of Cinnabar and bain du soliel. ��
