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

Day 1: Derek Lam 10 Crosby Rain Day. Thought it was a fitting fragrance on a rainy day Smiley Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1: Pinrose - Secret Genius (I tried a sample foil, this one is a not for me scent.)  the notes are Caramel, White Chocolate, Madagascar Vanilla, Cedarwood, Sandalwood. but the discription stated it sips like a white russian. I guess I smelled like a bar today Smiley Sad normally I like warm sandalwood scents but not this one. it got better after the dry down but until then I really smelled too boozy. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

It's too bad Secret Genius doesn't wear well on you. I adore all of Pinrose's line, and Secret Genius is one of my top 3. I find all of their scents to be really unique, and they blend really well together. I don't know if you've tired Pinrose Pinrose, but that one blends really well with Secret Genius. It's weird, since Pinrose is a rosy leather, and it definitely smells like roses and leather, but the combination of those two layered is really nice. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I wish I had a foil of this. I have the rollerball on my wishlist. I don't seem to like the Pinrose scents I've tried but this one has notes I like. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Hi Samtian, I seem to be of a similar vein  the way of the Pinrose line except I like the treehouse royal one instead but I too d don't seem to like any of the others than one specific one I have tried so far. I really thought I would like the secret genius one as I like notes that are in the sample just not rolled into one i guess Smiley Sad 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I have a few foils I need to try! This month for sure! 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I reached for Atelier Gold Leather!  I forgot how good it smells on me!  Wore it yesterday and today!

 

 

Top Notes: Bitter orange, Indian saffron, Jamaican rum
Heart Notes: Plum, Davana, Eucalyptus
Base notes: Gaiac wood, Cedarwood, Leather, Oud accordPERFUME.jpg

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Starting off Day 1 with one of my absolute favorite perfumes, Dolce & Gabana Dolce Rosa Excelsa. I adore anything involving roses!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1. I reached in and grabbed Dolce by DOLCE&GABBANA. http://www.sephora.com/dolce-P385301?skuId=1601301&icid2=products%20grid%3Ap385301 Notes:
Neroli Leaves, Papaya Flower, White Amaryllis, White Daffodil, White Water Lily, Cashmeran, Musky Notes, Sandalwood.  

 

I really really love this smell. I don't know how to describe it but intoxicating. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@Samtian i really love dolce too!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

This is one I've been wanting to try because of the neroli.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I love getting this as a sample.  It smells good! Now, I see it is the Neroli that attracts me to it.

 

Good idea posting the notes! @Samtian

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@wheeeee Thanks! I thought it might be helpful for some people. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yes!  I will post notes as well so that at least others can have a clue about all the perfumes we are about to post!  ;')

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1--- a nice soft but warm coconut. I'm really liking this. I've had it on for about three hours now and thus far it's wearing nicely. Only downside for me was that the tester is a wand in lieu of spray.  IMG_4293.JPG

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Update... I've had this on for about 12 hours, and I can still smell it if I'm right up to my wrist.  Very warm coco nutty.  I looked up the bottle and it's a pretty good price.  I'm certainly putting it on a list of possibilities for travel size!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1: Derek Lam 10 Crosby Ellipsis. On me, it smells like Play Doh's girls' night out at this hip, new club inspired by Andy Warhol's The Factory.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1: Layered Atelier samples in Vanilla Incensee and Orange Sanguine. I smell like a creamsicle in the best possible way!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Oh that sounds amazing!! I don't have Vanilla Incensee but I love Orange Sanguine.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1: Tom Ford Costa Azzurra

Beachy and light not wow sent for me.  

 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 1:  Juliette Has a Gun - Not a Perfume

 

My descriptions of perfumes suck, so I'm not going to try.  I don't particularly care for this scent; it reminds me of musk.  However, every time I read the name, I start singing "Janie's Got a Gun"!
