Re: Alternative use of perfume

Sometimes I use perfumes that I don't want to wear as room sprays.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

Spray or drop onto a cotton ball and into the vacuum cleaner, it makes the whole house smell amazing for hours after vacuuming.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

What I don't like any more is used up as room spray.

The best perfumes are too good to use for anything else.

Hey sofababe, please clarify: where do you recommend spraying the perfume to be dispersed by the vacuum?

In case no one has told you yet today: you smell good! :)

Eos - I don't use the trick myself, but you can buy some little 'scent sticks' for the vacuumer in every supermarket. You're just supposed to vacuum them up into the bag and when you go on vacuuming, the scent spreads. I'm sure you can do the same with a perfumed cotton ball.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

Oh, I just hought of alternative use - maybe not that alternative, but still:

Long ago - when I was a child, only older women still did it - it was quite common to spray perfume onto the lining of your purse. They did that just as much as the trick with the scented handkerchief. I remember the whiff that came out every time an elderly lady opened her handbag  smile

Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

I agree with Starlight_Angel....I use the perfumes I do not want to wear as room spray too!   36

Re: Alternative use of perfume

Well besides the obvious it can be effective as a form of mace, well for those of us that carry around spray bottles and spray decants. This is a joke obviously. o.O

Anyway, I use my lesser loved fumes as a car freshener. Lasts longer than a regular car air freshener too.


Love the idea of using perfume in the bath.  superglad

Hi EK

I spray my purse occasionally.
Every time I open it the scent is such a nice experience.

I have also sprayed down furniture with light fragrances hours before company arrives.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

Ah okay - about the elderly ladies and their purses... you must remember, when I was little it was womens' liberation all over with public gatherings of women burning their bras in the streets and such.

So back then it was the older generation who sprayed their purses. The younger generation in general was on a completely different path!

I never meant to say it's 'old lady-ish'  superglad, it was just the way things were.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

Ladies these ideas are lovely!! I am going to try all of them.

I keep a bottle of Bath and body spritz and a sex in the city in my toilet as air freshener. its much nicer than Glade.

I am also going to spray cinnamon sticks with L Lolita and put them in my linen cupboard (I was inspired with the pine cones trick)

Re: Alternative use of perfume

What a lovely thread.  Well, all except the part about Mandashell using hers as an alternative to mace  tongue

Rule #32  Enjoy the little things.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

I might use up a sample and spray my books. Makes studying more pleasant. Actual bottles I only use as perfume, if I don't want it I give it away I'd rather not waste on anything else. But my books smell nice from a couple spray samples when I got the perfumes later on and didn't need the sample anymore :]

I do this too. I try to freshen up my bed linens with a citrus or light perfume.

Perfumes and sushi are my anti-depressants.

This is a great topic. One of the perfumes that I cannot wear (but love the name) is  http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.9718.jpg Diane von Furstenberg Tatiana

I found out that it smells great on fabric after 30 minutes after application... I will probably spray the towels with it... and (as someone had advised) I will spray the curtains... I will let you know how that went. Thank you ladies for your suggestions.

I find vintage http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.371.jpg Clinique Aromatics Elixir  is a GREAT room spray.

as well as vintage AVON.

Re: Alternative use of perfume

I've been thinking - when you scent your clothes/closets/drawers as amny of you do - doesn't the smell of your clothes clash if you use a different perfume? I'd think so, that's why I don't do it.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you.
