    Same as ever, so far..

    If I end up getting locked down, perhaps will spray more to lift my mood.

    I work from home most days anyway, so the only thing that has changed so far is going out shopping. Stores have shut down so the quick shopping trip is all that has really changed for me.

    I wear the same quantity, but now I feel free to wear something that may be a bit more bold. No need to consider situations.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    Same, just a greater variety from among my wardrobe.
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    Couldn't vote because I'm wearing about the same.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Wearing a bit more but the bigger change for me while teleworking is not having to wear office friendly scents. I can go for the more challenging frags I love without considering meetings, gym, etc.

    More!
    Using the sanitising effect of the alcohol. Stuff like Mugler Cologne, 4711 and Agua Fresca as they also have a clean / sterile aura.
    And heavier applications over the last week before we went into LD. Generous application of Giorgio BH and VCA PH kept people at a comfortable distance.

    More, due to lack of toilet paper.

    I'm wearing more, and putting on extra sprays if I have to go out, in the hope that it will make people keep their distance from me.

    More. Loads more.

    It’s a social distancing thing. Wear obnoxious amounts of fragrance in public, and more people will stay away from you.

    Plus, I’m working from home lately. More chances to enjoy non-office scents.

    Anosmia is a symptom of COVID-19 infection. If you’re wearing a lot of strong fragrance in public, and some folks aren’t shying away, you might consider getting away from them ASAP. Though it is possible they’re actually enjoying your overdose of One Man Show Gold.

    My answer is: The same volume. But working from home, I'm wearing some powerhouses I would never wear to work. So that's one benefit. But I'd rather be at work at my stand up desk and hangin' with my colleagues.

    Same amount. The only difference is that I'm now exclusively wearing and trying to use up all of the samples that I don't hate that are in my sample drawer, rather than anything from a bottle I own.

    So far I think we have 29 wearing the same amount, so a clear lead over more, and far fewer with less.

    Actually, I am a bit surprised even 13 people voted less. I have been wearing far less since I had flu-like symptoms a couple of weeks ago (I doubt it was corona because I was better within 2-3 days, but my flu swab was also negative). Since then I just haven't felt motivated to wear anything. I work from home normally anyway, but I have curtailed my gym workouts and even my park workouts because I don't feel right sharing the pull-up bars with other people. Not sure if it's a mood thing, or the fact that I'm either in my pajamas or clothing I wear for lounging around at home, and that it practically indistinguishable from my pajamas anyway and I just don't feel like getting perfume on my couch potato outfits. I think I've only worn two scents in recent memory and have gone fragrance free most days.
    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.

    Maybe slightly less per application, with a view to sample more, but I haven't actually sampled more.
