It’s not a secret that I am a huge Shalimar fan.
I still chuckle at the irony of that, each time I write it, due to
the fact that I hated it the first time I tried it.
The bad thing is that experience has shown Shalimar not really being appropriate for work. And that is where I wear perfume the most.
So, in order not to take away from myself the pleasure of smelling Shalimar, I put it into my routine of changing bed sheets.
All I can say is, it’s a win-win situation.
I spray my matress with several spritzes of Shalimar each time I change the sheets
and then I go to bed with a light misty feel of Shalimar in the air. And the best thing is it lasts for a few days!
The upside to this? Additional one I mean.
I change my sheets quite often nowadays.
Ok, that didn’t come out as it should have. 🙂 But you know what I meant.

You’re funny, Ines! Perhaps I should spray perfume on my sheets, too, so I change them more often. Good tip! 🙂
I noticed that dome time ago. For the things I’d like to do but have no strength of character to realize, I need a workaround that helps.
Haha. Nice solution, Ines!
Thank you! I’m really happy with it. 😁
As much as I enjoy wafting the occasional remains of perfume I wore before going to bed, I’m not sure I’d like to smell it every night – especially if this is the same perfume. But if it works for you, I’m glad you found that solution.
BTW, I think you haven’t read this my post about the “dangers” of using perfumes not “as intended” 😉
Ha! I don’t remember reading that post. 😀
I don’t think this might happen with Shalimar, by third night it’s gone. If I’m really generous with spraying it, maybe 4 nights.
I’d rather wear it but there is really no opportunity for it.
