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!

That is hilarious @ghrelin. Glad you've tried to tell her how it is! Now you just have to watch out for that kitty revenge. Smiley Wink

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@Asche  HA!  That gif is amazing.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Ha, your cat is hilarious, @ghrelin! I wish I weren't allergic to cats. I'd love perfume advice from a cat.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@txcatx  How sad that you're allergic!  Though it's probably for the best.  First they start trying to dictate your perfume selection, next they try to take over the world.  Smiley Very Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@ghrelin - lol!  Give a cat an inch and they take over the world!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

This is 2 days because yesterday I didn't wear any perfume.  I cooked and got my favorite smell all over me!  GARLIC!!!!!

 

Notes: Freshly peeled, Sauteeing with Sofrito, Simmering in Shrimp Creole Tomato Sauce, Happy

Notes: Carnation, Wild Mint, Turkish Rose Essence, Hemp Leaves, Vetiver Roots, White Amber.

Style: Beautiful. Dangerous. Rare.

Lol! This is great! And! I so agree with the first part of your post! Love garlic!!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Florabotanica is my number 1. I just bought my second bottle - this time I went for the 3.4 oz. It is the ONLY scent that truly lasts all day on me.

 

And of course I love garlic - I'm Italian - we love our garlic!!!!!!!!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Nice to see another Florabotanica lover!  

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I, too, enjoy being doused in the smell of garlic. Smiley Wink

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Oh yesss! I feel the same way when I cook steak in butter and get the smell all over myself.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yesssssss!   I love all cooking smells except when I fry foods!  hahah! 

 

Fried foods are so good so I do it once in a while.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

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

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 :-)
