The Perfume Challenge

Do you have a box full of perfume vials and/or a vanity covered in perfume bottles? Are you the Goldilocks of perfume, just looking for the perfect signature scent? Do you want an opportunity to post daily about how your perfume of the day smells oaky and smoky with hints of blackberry and currant, like a cigar in a whisky barrel rolling through a Mediterranean orchard on a breezy summer morning?


If you answered yes to any of the above, or you just want to hop on board for the ride, join us for a 31 days of perfume challenge starting January 1st! Some of us from the 25 days of lipstick challenge wanted to continue the fun and exploration, and since many of us have so many perfume samples, we thought this challenge would be perfect. If you don't have 31 perfumes or hate everything that doesn't smell like Meyer lemons and fresh goat cream, that's fine--we're just aiming to use the neglected perfumes we have laying around and incorporate them into our perfume rotations.


And if you want more perfume vials, there's no better time than now to take a peek at Sephora's samples section.


Edit: Anyone can join in at anytime! We're here to support, live vicariously through, and encourage everyone in their olfactory adventures!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I don't wear much perfume when I am going out but I have plenty,so I'll do this even if I just wear them at home.It's a good way to use some up/try some from my stash. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

This is great, @txcatx! I'm having a lot of fun with the lipstick challenge so I am happy to participate in this one, also. I won't make a list ahead of time but I think I will put aside a group to choose from for the month so I can make sure I at least *like* all of them. It sounds dumb but I tend to get super-crabby if I'm wearing perfume that I don't like, and I don't need to be any crabbier than I normally am ;)!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Oooooh I'm intrigued! I think I have enough perfumes/samples for this lol.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yay! Awesome writeup, @txcatx!! At this point I can easily do 100 days of perfume lol. I won't make a perfume list before starting, but will wear something different everyday. This is going to be fun 😆

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

This will definitely be fun! I did recently go through and got rid of a bunch of sample perfumes. But I also definitely have more than enough for this challenge, lol.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Excited about another challenge!!! I have way too many perfumes Looking at my spreadsheet its in the mid 3 digits so I should have not problem picking 31.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I love it!!! ❤️

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I only have 6 fragrances, so I'd be a poor candidate! But I'll enjoy everybody's posts.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

This may actually finally push me to dig into the never-ending stash.  Thanks!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I'm down 100%! Let's do this!
