Do You Wear a Certain Kind of Fragrance When You Feel Bad?

Do You Wear a Certain Kind of Fragrance When You Feel Bad?

When I'm headachey, I can handle only vanilla or tea fragrances. Anything else, even other soft scents, just won't do and can even make me feel worse. It's gotten to the point where I can even tell I need to reach for the ibuprofen because the perfume I'm wearing starts to smell "off" to me. What about you? When you are hurting, are there only certain scents you can stand? And can you stand any smells at all, for that matter?

When stress starts to get to me, I spritz on a teensy bit of lavender. That always helps calm me down.

I use Crabtree & Evelyn's AMAZING Fennel Mint and Ivy shower gel when I'm hungover or stressed.

Lemon and mint help with all types of nausea and head-achy and stomach achy etc problems- I tend to make a mist using a combo of fresh lemon and crushed mint diffused in hot water, letting it cool, then spraying it not-so-liberally on everything

If I'm feeling sick I usually just don't put any on because it makes me feel nauseous.

It depends. When I'm feeling down, I sometimes like to put on a citrusy perfume, but other times, I just don't bother.

I often wear L'eau d' Issey (both the male & female one) and there are days I just can't handle them. I get annoyed by the scent when I have a headache.

There are some days when I can't stand the smell of any perfume or it makes me nauseous ...I agree about the tea scented fragrances though, I prefer them the most or something equally subtle.
