Perfumes for bedtime wear?
Dior Hypnotic Poison
Annick Goutal Vanille Exquise
Givenchy Organza Indecence
However, I've come to believe that my respiratory tract should get a break from perfume periodically, so I usually don't spray anything before bed. (Though I do enjoy it when something from the previous day is still there the next morning, like the magnificent Grain de Soleil that I wore yesterday. That stuff doesn't know when to quit!)
Hey, do you believe that scent affects your dreams at night?
I have no guilty conscience, so no bed time fragrance for me.
Well, with me, it depends on the mood etc. Roses are also helpful according to aromatherapy for falling asleep, and in summer I was wearing lot of them before sleeping. I found "Persian Rose" from Pacifica to be quite good, since it also has melissa, which also calms down. I did not have a quilty conscience however, but I was very stressed before my exhibition, so it was good to have something relaxing.
"L´Heure Bleue" is also great bed-time-perfume, but I rarely test any new ones before sleeping anymore, since I´ve had the experience too often to stay awake ´til morning if it was too bad - or good !
Scent absolutely affects my dreams. I've had some weird and wonderful ones, like the time I wore Incense Rose to bed and dreamt that Andy Tauer was trying to sell me a pair of singing canaries, lol.
That is funny!! Dreams are so fascinating. I believe scent affects dreams too.
But... There are two fragrances that actually put me in that sleep mode and they are S.Lutens Rousse and E. Coudray Vanille et Coco. They work like sedatives for me, amazing!
Is there a particular soap you use? Lately, I've been using a tuberose body wash by Alba Botanica. It's very heady and all the perfume I need before bed!
I agree with the original poster: a simple musk is ideal for me before bed. I use to have Dame Perfumery's "New Musk Oil", which was sublime. I don't remember what happened to my little bottle but I might need to buy a new one. I also used to use "Pour Un Homme de Caron (Eau de Toilette)" but I got bored with it. It's a comforting lavender vanilla, perfect for bedtime.
Yes, I do sometimes where a fragrance to bed. Just whatever I'm in the mood for, or applications of various different fragrances at different spots on my arms, and I'll cycle through the fragrance "buffet" until I fall asleep.
