    Default who else tries to wear 3 fragrances a day?

    SOTM
    SOTA
    SOTE

    why not?

    Sometimes the first one is good in longevity and I only get 2. But usually I get in 3.

    The 2nd may not work until late afternoon but then I pick one that doesn't have as much longevity and sometimes get in 3 even then.

    That's...ambitious. How do you keep the 2nd and 3rd from blending with the previous?

    i don't always.

    I wear on my shirt

    Sometimes I change shirts.

    Sometimes they blend.

    Often the first has worn off anyway.

    I used to sometimes wear about 3 fragrances a day,but that was mainly when I was testing out certain fragrances. I usually just wear one a day,sometimes two. There are also days when I don't wear any fragrance, because my interest in fragrances goes up and down. And lately it has been down.

    Did try this a few times, mostly did not follow through simply because the afternoon/evening scent was usually too strong to allow much differentiation anyway (as pointed out correctly at least in one previous post on this thread).

    On a typical weekday I only get one in, spray it on in the morning and work all day. On weekends I will often get two in, a scent of the day and scent of the evening. Three is ambitious, I applaud you.

    well, this way I get more variety. I choose depending upon longevity.

    If I got a bunch of new samples, sure, that happens. A lot of them end up being scrubbed off after a couple of hours, or I only apply it to one of my forearms and then apply something else on my neck/hair/clothes and wear clothes over the old one.

    I definitely do two, but have done 3 when the first 1 or 2 are exceptionally light.

    Three a day isn't unusual for me. Even if the last one is just before bed.

    When I lived alone I definitely did this. Currently, I often stick to the same fragrance, and reapply in the afternoon.

    I used to do this every weekday. Once in the morning, once when I get home from work, and once after my daughter goes to bed. However, since I've gotten on this extended sampling kick, I've cut back on my after work spritzes so that my nose was more clear for my evening sampling. I figure my nose will be a little more clear for testing the samples if I let the morning frag fade out completely without adding a new one.

    Right now, I usually spray my morning spritzes on my chest, back of neck and my left forearm, left wrist. Then for sampling, I usually use my right forearm and right wrist to keep them from influencing each other.

    Two fragrance applications daily for me has worked fine for decades.

    I often find a way to do 3-4 if testing and using samples. And sometimes I apply 2-3 frags a day based on what I’m doing. One in the morning, but if I’ve done a lot of manual labor or workouts, an afternoon shower followed by another scent is sometimes in order. And then, I often do a nighttime pillow spray as well.

    I figure if I’ve spent this much money, and it’s all more juice than I’ll ever use in a lifetime already, might as well use as much as possible.

    Maximum of two since I tend to apply to my chest under my shirt. One in the morning and then another after my evening shower. Most days it's the same one though as I like to appreciate one throughout the whole day,

    Default Re: who else tries to wear 3 fragrances a day?

    I never wore more than one in the past, but these days, on occasion, I'll wear a spray or two of something different on my forearm in the evenings. That is if my SOTD has almost completely worn off, which is 90% of the time.

    I do daily, In the morning I start with a freshy that lasts only a few hours to max 4 hours, At lunch i get something stronger and at night whatever I feel like, sometimes when I use a beast mode one at lunch, this last for the rest of the day so that day is a two fragrance day.

    yeah, good system. Pick based upon longevity.

    Sometimes I'll pick a natural that has a 2 - 3 hour longevity, if I know that's what I want.

    Naturals have low longevity most of the time, so I pick based upon the time left I am looking at.

    For me it's usually one a day, unless I happen to catch a shower mid day, then I will pick a second fragrance.

    Default Re: who else tries to wear 3 fragrances a day?

    Usually I'll wear two; one in the morning, then another in the afternoon/evening, assuming the first has worn off. I work from home part time, so days that I'm at home I'm more likely to wear 3 in a day. I will admit that I've taken a quick shower and changed clothes just to switch fragrances a few times before...

    I do 2 or 3. 8am, 3pm, 8pm. Shower before 8pm. Probably only get 3 half the time.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    yay!

    Sometimes I get in 4, if I'm dealing with short-longevity naturals.

    I try to go for two if it's possible. I'm rarely able to pull off three. My morning scent runs into my afternoon scent (no desire to shower or change my clothes midday). I basically have an SOTD and occasionally an SOTE.
