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

Meant to post a day or two ago, but I've been out of town and am currently on a plane. Just a reminder that this challenge is starting tomorrow (if you haven't already started), so get your perfumes ready!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Eeeeeeep!  So ready!!!   I've stuffed all the vials in a Sephora pouch and will be blind selecting all month.  Nothing goes back into my drawer that I didn't absolutely love.  That's the plan anyway.

Safe travelsSmiley Happy 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Great idea! I'm going to do this, too.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

That's a good idea! I'm too particular to leave things up to chance though 😅

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Well, I have no intention of wearing anything until I smell it on paper first.  And I'm allowed to do redraws!  My plan is not solid.  

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I am getting ready for the challenge! I have gone through my sample stash and full size bottles; and found some options that I can tolerate wearing each day. Smiley Very Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Can I just start now cause I already started two days ago.

 

Day -3:  Gucci Bamboo

 

I absolutely adore this scent.  I suck at explaining scents so I won't even try.  I think my main test will be whether my hubby thinks I smell wonderful.  You know it's awesome when you give a loved one a hug and they take a step back and tell you you smell good and go in for another hug!  

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Count me in!  Even though most scents are migraine triggers, I have found scents I can wear without any problem.  The biggest problems are with sweet and vanilla.  The minute I smell either or both, it's like being stabbed with an ice pick!

 

@txcatx - I L-U-V your scent description!

 

I don't know if I have 31 testers/rollerballs, but I'll definitely be reading all your posts if I don't.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I can do this!!!  Will do this!!!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I think that i'll join in, I don't think that I can manage every day but i'll do my best. I'll gather my vials in a bit, I have too many and they need to get used.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yes! I wanna do this, all these challenges are helping me to love and use my stash. I think this will be harder than the lipsticks for me though, I go through fragrance obsessions where I'll continuously wear a scent for a week and still not get tired of it. But I have so many and they do deserve a proper rotation 😉

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

YAS!! I am so excited for this challenge! I have a bunch of samples laying around so this will be perf!! Now I have a reason to use them all! Awesome idea! 

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

I got a bunch of new scents from The Perfume Court and still haven't tried/smelled them all... Maybe I need to join this challenge?!? Smiley Very Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yes, @veronika23! I'd love to hear your thoughts of your new perfumes! 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I guess all I can say is that I'll try my best to do this @txcatx

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 Smiley Wink!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Congrats to everyone taking on this challenge!!

 

I would have loved to join, but I cannot wear perfume due to migraines Smiley Sad

 

I am excited to read all your upcoming comments and discussion tho. Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I can empathize, @Insomniacmuffin!  Over the years, I've been able to narrow down the ingredients that are migraine triggers.  I still have a long way to go though!  For example, vanilla is a real killer for me and it's in everything (loosely speaking)!  So I don't even bother to consider selecting a sample of a scent that has vanilla in it.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@Insomniacmuffin  all scents? Smiley Sad  Most will give me a headache/migraine but a select few I can wear without problem.  I find the perfumes you can find just about anywhere are the ones that cause the problems... you know the typical stuff.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

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