    Default Do you wear fragrance even at home alone?

    On those lazy days where you just stay home doing nothing and are alone, do you still put on fragrance?

    I hate feeling like I’m wasting expensive fragrances like this but more and more I have been enjoying putting on fragrances even if I stay in my pajamas all day.

    Yes I do. I wear just for myself anyway.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Do it once in a while, especially when I want to check projection and longevity of fragrances.

    I especially wear them when I'm home alone. I buy them and wear them for myself, not for anybody else.

    I am almost never home alone but as I wear fragrance all the time, yes, I wear it home alone.

    Hardly ever happens, but when it does, I do still use fragrance.

    I used to do it for my own pleasure and not think twice about it, just luxuriate in it. These days, though, to be completely honest, I've been stagnating a bit career-wise, and so it makes me feel a bit wasteful, even if it's so pleasurable to me, so I sometimes hold off on treating myself to a fragrance while I'm just lazying about, because while I still enjoy it if I spray it, I do occasionally feel guilty about it, now that I need to be more careful about my finances. I do feel I need to work on overcoming guilt about things that I bought when I could afford them though, specially when they add so much positively to my life. Anyway!

    Yes. All the time. I choose alone days to really amp up the perfumes I wear too as I have to curb back during the work week.

    Most weekend mornings I'll still be in my pjs but will wear perfume. If I'm testing out samples I might wear one on my left arm and another on my right, and helps me also test out longevity too.

    You and I have the same philosophy of at home perfume wear, Kitty2Shoes. Though today I wore about 8 different things throughout the day with different places for them on each of my arms.

    Keep in mind that often if I’m home alone, I’m not well, and then I don’t wear perfume.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Heck, yeah. If you live in a scent-hostile society, home alone is the best time to wear perfume, especially if one has a lot of juice and not a long stretch of life left to live.

    It's never wasted when it was for my own pleasure to begin with.

    All the time! Totes. Not a waste, though im never alone. Stay at home wife and munchkins. And a fluffy cat. They are ambivalent though.
    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.

    I like wearing my most challenging fragrances when I'm home alone or late in the evening after my SO has gone to bed.

    I always wear fragrance, even in solitude. One of the bonuses of biz trips is getting to wear the collection pieces my SO doesn’t appreciate. I have been known to sit in my hotel room and sniff myself. Lots of leftover per diem for this guy.

    Yes. I have plenty to go through!

    However, I've learned the hard way to not spray just before bed - the bedsheets will smell like a mess of different fragrances pretty quickly.

    Agreed. I also overspray when alone, more than I would when others are around.

    Yes I do. Sometimes I will choose to do some sampling or revisit some samples while other times I may choose to wear something that I don't normally wear when going out.

    All the time. Some stuff I don’t even wear out in public until I’ve worn it at home a few times and have figured out how much to apply and what it smells like from beginning to end.

    Not always, but most of the time.

    I wear a few (more challenging) fragrances at home that I would most likely never wear around others.

    Yes, at home mostly to be honest. As was mentioned above, some cities seem to be fragrance-hostile, and that's pretty much how it is where I live.

    All pure and natural - That trend.

    Most nights, when I post a scent of the evening, it's right after I got out of the shower. And I typically am at home most nights, unless I go out to eat.

    Yes, I do wear fragrance when home alone. I test fragrances when I'm home alone, or I wear the ones I feel that others wouldn't enjoy on me, or the ones with poor longevity that I can reapply whenever when at home or move on to something else, or my comfort scents I mostly want only at home... or sometimes my favourites because I just want to smell them.
