Poll: Do you generally apply the 'day' and 'night' perfume rule?

Day or night?

I WAS RECENTLY confronted with a question which confirmed that I will always fall a little short when it comes to certain areas regarding cosmetics, beauty and grooming.

It was about perfume – and not whether I favoured floral fragrances over woody musks – but whether I had ever accidentally mixed up my ‘day’ and ‘night’ stash.

Based on the tone in which the question was delivered and the facial expression which accompanied it, I surmised that this particular ‘error’ was not something to shout from the rooftops. Well, not if the person posing it had any say in the matter.

Now listen, I had, of course, heard of the concept, but I didn’t think it was a rule to live and die by.

I have many much-loved fragrances, I rarely leave home without applying some, and I can identify various perfumes from a distance, but ‘day’ and ‘night’? Nah.

So, let’s put it to you; do you have ‘day’ and ‘night’ perfume, and do you wear them accordingly?

Poll Results:

No I don't, and this question is stressing me out. (1954)
I consider some 'night' and some 'day', but I wear them whenever I want. (1567)
Yes I do, and yes I apply them accordingly. (533)
