Perfumes for bedtime wear? L'Eau Neuve - Lubin
AromaX 12.08.2012 | Miscellaneous
...Apicius:Hello AromaX - lavender fragrances for bedtime wear? Doesn't lavender have a slighty cooling effect? For me, its herbal character puts it in a row with rather energizing fougeres that I would not like to wear in bed.Also, lavender kills moths, so I put a little sachet of it between my clothes. It simply doesn't seem to be healthy enough to give me a good feeling as bedtime wear.Greetings Apicius. Well, I geuss it's all depends on your olfactory history - the associations you've built with lavender.From aromatherapy point of view lavender is a calming and relaxing oil that can helps to fall in sleep. One drop on your pillow is an advice you find in many books.Lavender with musc is also a part of some washing powders, so this combination may remind someone of fresh sheets (Jersey by Chanel has it's effect as well as Island Lavender by Caldey).For the rest lavender is very versatile - it's cooling indeed like in fougères or eau de cologne (Last time I smelled it in Cologne pour le matin and it felt almost like a metal lemmet of a knife). But it can be warming (think of Andy's Reverie au Jardin, Vero's Kiki, lavender and vanille combination like in Caron pour un Homme). Oil is cooler (especially of spike lavender), absolute is sweeter and warmer.

...Different fragrances depending on needs.Have two of my own blends of pure essential oils - Lavender&Vetiver (with Ylang, Petitgrain etc) and Jasmine&Frankinsence (with Ylang). Those are just pure aromatherapy next to nice smell.Wearing Chanel 19 sometimes as it feels like mother who is telling a good night story. Rive Gauche has a similar effect.Lately tried Moringa from Body Shop - especially in the summer feels like tropical paradise calling sweet dreams. I don't really wear it outside - it's too sweet and floral for me, but love it inside and as a bed fragrance.I think Island Lavender by Caldey would be a nice fragrance for going to bed - haven't try it yet.
