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 know what you mean about the citrus in many AC scents! One reaches for a bottle of vetiver or rose and is greeted with citrus instead. To be fair, from the name it would seem the house specializes in cologne, which traditionally features citrus notes.

 

One of the Sephora SAs told me today that AC uses a the most natural ingredients in their perfumes of any of the lines they carry and to my knowledge, natural citrus materials tend to be cheaper. So maybe that's another reason why.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@unfungirl I store my samples the same way!  Little glass cups that size are just the perfect size for perfume samples.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@ghrelin  yay! we are storage twins!! having them organized and visible is definitely encouraging me to use all these little dudes more!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@unfungirl  Definitely!  I can barely keep track of my chapsticks, without a storage system like this I'd totally lose every single perfume sample sent to me and find them 5 years later.  

 

Shame this doesn't work as well for chapstick! Smiley Wink

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

haha i have SO many lip balms @ghrelin!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Great idea, @unfungirl!

 

I keep mine in a basket, but the opening is length-wise so the samples/rollerballs lay down.  It can be rather challenging since all the samples seem to end up at the bottom underneath the rollerballs!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Thank you, @Titian06!! I experimented with a couple different things until I finally settled on that one. The little diamonds help keep everything in place :-)

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@unfungirl, I just bought containers to keep at my desk at work so I make sure I use them! 

XOXO,
Marieke

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@MariekeBT It really helps encourage you to use them!!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@unfungirl seeing all the pretty colors really catches my eye too! Smiley Wink 

XOXO,
Marieke

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Nest: Indigo

Moroccan Tea, Kashmir Wood, Cardamom, Wild Fig.  

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Love this one! It's my favorite from Nest. A lot of the Nest fragrances are very, very strong to me, but this one isn't. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@WhereYouStand, I have the rollerball and I love it! I didn't like it much at first but the more I started wearing it the more I liked it. (: 

XOXO,
Marieke

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Ooh, this one sounds really nice!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I like this one. I am picky about the nest fragrances but this one is nice.

Day 5 Atelier Cologne Sud Magnolia

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Jan 5: Hanae Mori Hanae EDP: i adore the scent. Talking about good deal, I got the giant bottle 100 ml for more than 50% off sometimes ago when Macy's had a cyber deal week. Score (even more when I got bunch of compliments from complete strangers)! Smiley Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 5- Chloe Love Story.. I'm a mini collector and this came in a set I bought.  Today was a day I made it to the shower and right back to bed, but I always wear perfume no matter what!

 

I'm horrible at note descriptions and when I first put it on I immediately smelled Mr.Clean. Turned out that was from my husband washing the floor🙏,  I do smell rose in it I think..definitely florally. I'm not crazy about it but I'll give it another try!
