31 Days of 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 am 100% down with this! I have sooo many perfume samples and DS dabbers.

 

Also 10 points to your house for that description, LOL. I want to smell the perfume that smells like Meyer lemons and fresh goat cream!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@JazaChai I love that description too!  I've also read so many funky descriptions for scents that I wouldn't have been totally surprised if it were real. ;-)

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--- 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 2: Bobbi Brown Beach. I am longing for warm sunny weather! It is 15 degrees with blowing snow where I am now! Smiley Sad This fragrance is refreshing, and I love to wear it year round!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I love this one! I also love replica beach walk I cannot choose between the two. I ended up buying both a while back because the indecision was too much. Smiley Happy  

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 2:  Mugler: Alien 

 

Key Notes:
Jasmine Sambac, Cashmeran Wood, Amber Gris

 

I love this one! I used to have a big bottle of it. but I happily gave it to my bestie as she loved it too and was still searching for her first signature perfume. and i am happy to have given it a good home and don't regret it. also I can always  grab samples here and there.  I have tons of perfume so it was not lost on me and I was happy to give it to the best home possible.

@WhereYouStand - That was so nice of you!  Smiley Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Checking in for Day 2!

I tried out Moschino Fresh Couture and it was a nice clean fragrance. It didn't last very long but clean smells don't last that long on me anyway. I do better with floral or musky scents. It was nice and the full sized bottle looks adorable but I'm not sure if I'd buy it just yet. Maybe towards the summer I'll like it better lol.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

If someone likes this fragrance (Moschino Fresh) my SiJCP had it on Clearance.  (saving $$$ is good!) 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I tried D&G Light Blue today. It started out with a very strong grapefruit note, but dried down to smell a bit musty, like when you open a drawer with really old wool sweaters in it.  

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I totally agree with you about Light Blue. I used to LOVE it, but I've grown very tired of it. Interestingly, the cologne version is one of my favorite scents on a guy, though. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 2 for me: Trouble in Heaven by Louboutin. Aside from the hideously cheesy name, the scent is quite nice. The amber stood out for me most while I wore it;  it's deep and sultry with good staying power on me.

 

Verdict: I wouldn't purchase a full size of it.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I didn't find any of the Louboutin fragrances to be worth the price!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Day 2-- Elizabeth and James black... this isn't for me.  I didn't hate it, but I'll pass the mini roller ball along to someone who'll love it.  I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like... just didn't. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Do you generally like E&J fragrances @missjeanie?  I have a bunch set aside for this challenge because I have so many samples, but so far they are not doing much for me.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

 Day 3: Fat Electrican by Etat Libre d'Orange

 

My scarf actually still smells a little of coconut from yesterday, but that just makes the FE smoother and sweeter than usual. Otherwise it's just cozy, earthy vetiver all the way down.

 

Previous days:

Day 1: Atelier Vanilla Incensee and Orange Sanguine

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge
