    I cannot say that I have used my fragrances for anything but wearing, except for as a bit of aromatherapy, if you will.

    Sometimes I will take sticky notes and write the name of the fragrance on it, then give it a quick spray. I then sniff at it for hours to see how it develops, and leave it overnight to see if I can smell it the next day. I will also do this when I get an order of fragrances in the mail, and I don't have enough available skin to test them all at once. This same trick is also very useful in showing fragrances to other people, as they are used to the idea of spraying paper and sniffing away. I especially like this for showing multiple fragrances to groups of friends/family members.

    Some have used them as a room spray but I think that's a bit expensive and a waste for something as such.

    Other than sometimes using them to perfume the bed, pillows, rooms, curtains, or bag/wallet lining, I've also tried spritzing some into the ink I use for fountain pens.

    Works great in my Gooloo oil difuser. I usually do about 6 sprays of any given frag, and set it to go for 6 hours. Eau des Baux and Demeter Pineapple are current favorites, and permeate well, fill up the entire side of the house. Candles offer a nice ambiance, but often times, don't give enough "throw".

    I also use unwanted cheapies for room sprays in the bathroom. Currently have a few Tapout ones in there, Samba Fresh, Swiss Army Forest, Remy Latour Pressure, and Acqua di Selva. All of those are duds to me, except Acqua di Selva, I just LOVE the smell of it in the bathroom, and since it doesn't perform well on my skin, it serves its purpose as a room spray... although I do wear it often too, but only in the house, since it doesn't perform well.

    For room spray I only use Classic Match and the aerosol body spray, like Old Spice or the canned cologne spray from Bath and Body Works. They're only 4 or 5 dollars.

    I've used Club de Nuit Intense in my teenage son's room when airing it out just wasn't enough. That stuff lasts a hellaciously long time.

    I got a sample of Vanille Fatale recently and I used it on my pillows/sheets. Definitely not the kind of smell I'd ever want on my skin, but very nice to fall asleep to. I also sometimes spray the curtains in my living room, so when the sun shines through in the afternoon it heats them up and releases the smell. I've also tried the oil diffuser trick, which works nicely.

    I occasionally spray the dresser drawers and closet in my bedroom so the stale air smell doesn't stay on my clothes too much.
    I also keep dryer sheets in my dresser drawers to keep my clothes smelling fresh.

    Thank for the reply, as another bit of "Mike and Molly" trivia, also noticed that English Leather is incidentally - though never explicitly mentioned, still quite easily visible - is Mike's to go everyday scent, so was therefore even more surprised to see this fragrance film/TV connection mentioned.

    As for English Leather, always liked this one sufficiently, as odd as it may sound, to never use it for non-fragrance purposes, though it may be just dumb luck to subjectively like this fragrance enough, have a skin chemistry better interacting with this one or so. Most likely not just and not so much for its price, but simply for its actual scent.

    Pretty much any Creed works great as a litter box deodorizer.
