    Default Wearing More or Less Fragrance Due to Lockdowns, etc. ?

    Are you wearing more or less fragrance since lockdowns and quarantines, etc.?

    Forgot to put wearing the same amount as an option.

    Please feel free to note it in a comment and I’ll tally those too.

    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.

    Same.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    I’ve been wearing more on average, at least two, sometimes three different fragrances per day. I don’t worry as much about overspraying so I’ll go 4-5 sprays on everything where as I’ll normally go 3.

    The same amount as usual - but - I no longer think about situational wearing since the days have all become the same: me, at home.

    I would normally think about my plans for the day (Work/Play? Happy hour? Movie night? What's the weather like today? Will I be outside much?)

    Now, I wear whatever will make me feel better about being cooped up.

    A neither option is in order. I'm unaffected by it when it comes to how much or how little. Always a scent for the morning, and one for the evening.

    Sorry, I should’ve put same as an option. Feel free to leave it in a comment so I can tally those unchanged as well.

    Comments on changed wearing habits, even if the volumes stay roughly the same, are also very interesting.

    Because I'm home, MORE! Seem to be more variety too, rather than sticking to my week-long scents.

    Same, but I see myself wearing a broader spectrum, more of the rare and the rarely worn ones.

    More. I'm messing around with silly dosing to enforce social distancing too (12 Sprays of Fahrenheit, yes please).

    Same I’m still working thankfully, not going out as much so the extra wears are less.

    More of everything. This has been my only real chance to consistently do this.

    Perhaps what it really is, though, is a chance to spend more consecrated time with my fragrances. All in all, I’ve just been more attentive to everything and made the best of this little scent vocation.

    It's not the lockdown that killed my desire, but the earthquake and continuous aftershocks. I kind of made myself to wear Pure Malt today due to sudden return of the winter.

    I’m wearing the same amount as before. I wear about four sprays per wear always, five or so for very weak fragrances and there are one or two I wear three of especially in warmer weather. I’ll either just apply once a day if the longevity is huge or, if it only lasts half the day, switch to a SOTE at night. That hasn’t changed since I love wearing fragrances even at home.

    I’m wearing a lot less makeup and getting dressed up nicely less though.
    Favorite Houses:
    Hermès
    Zoologist
    Frederic Malle
    Amouage
    Rogue Perfumery
    Serge Lutens

    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, and violet)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres
    Rich gourmands
    Great longevity and sillage

    More, because I’m showering more often and then donning fragrance afterward.

    My girlfriend did tell me that Vintage Versace L’Homme could serve as COVID-19 repellent...
