Can I wear room spray as a perfume!?

Random question I know, but I have fallen in love with Seychelles fragrance from The White Company. It makes me feel happy and I would love it as a perfume, but they don't do one. The room spray is the closest thing they have. Would it just not last very long on the skin or would it be likely to irritate skin?

You could spray your clothes I guess. Best not to spray it on skin.

I worked with a man who doused himself with Febreze. He was strange in many ways.

Could you spray some on a handkerchief and carry out with you?

I would put it on clothes but not skin. Maybe lay your clothes out and spray it directly above them so the "mist" falls over them rather than spraying straight onto the clothes themselves so it doesn't mark or stain them.

I wear 'Winter' from The White Company on my skin and its fine. Smells amazing!

How about layering? Use the shower gel and then body lotion on top.

I like White Company's Symons Street ( think that's what it's called) and tried to engage the assistants in the shop as to whether it could be worn as a perfume. They looked at me as a bit gone out.

I love that scent as well, it smells of summer.
The body wash and lotion do last quite well on your skin.
One of the Gwen Stefani perfumes smells quite like it, think it's G

I'm already layering with the shower gel and body lotion and I find myself surreptitiously smelling my arm now and then just because it smells so nice! But the fragrance doesn't last all day.

Single are you using the room fragrance when you say you 'wear' Winter?

Think I need to go and have a smell of some more of their fragrances!

Gwen Stefani seems to have lots of perfumes with G in the title. Any idea which one it is? (She has 23 perfumes - who knew?!)

Have you smell bronze goddess by Estée Lauder, it smells similar

I once accidentally sprayed some on my skin and it came up in a huge rash that took weeks to disappear. Really wouldn't risk it.
