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

Is this the blue one? If it is, I may have posted about it. I liked it, but it wasn't very long lasting on me. The notes are really nice though. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yep! That's the one. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Tried Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb yesterday to see what is all the rave about... Ay...

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@lyravega yup i concur with this *SCENTIMENT* hahahahaha sorry sorry sorry... But yeah, it's been a while since I smelled it but that perfume has me seriously confused because with a name like "flower bomb" I imagined it would be an explosion of beautiful sparkling florals... Really it's a patchouli overload with musk, powder, some sweetness and a little bit of synthetic floral... I don't know I might be biased I'm a fleur-chouli hater.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

lol @lyravega That bad? I love this scent. Which is weird because I usually HATE sweet scents and go for more masculine/musky ones like Narcisso Rodriguez, Modern Muse Chic, or La Panthere.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@lyravega Haha! Oh no!

 

You know, I used to hate it as well. I had a sample of it maybe a couple of years ago and was like HARD PASS, and that aversion stuck until about 4 or 5 months ago when a rollerball was in TSB. I was able to detect a bit off the ball and it was totally different than I remember. Now, it's one of my favorites! My tastes must have just changed over the years.

@Samtian - This .gif is awesome!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Lol at that GIF! @Samtian

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@Beadshopgirl That's about how I feel about the scent lol. Looking at the notes I have no idea why it was even in my wishlist. But it had been there since I started Sephora pretty much. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Has anyone tried Harvey Prince fragrances?  I noticed this brand while scrolling through Birchbox.  There are several that sound interesting, but I don't like to buy blindly.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Yes! I have a sample of Harvey Prince Sincerely, I love it. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Thank you.  Do they have good sillage?

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

It did ok, most perfume's don't last long on me anyways. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Anyone is welcome to continue the challenge, @blackkitty2014! I'm taking a few days off to enjoy my favorites, and then when I get my next orders from Sephora with new samples, I'll start posting again. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Maybe change the name of the thread to "Perfume Sample Challenge" or something of the sort. There is a fragrance thread already though... Hm. But, if you get a sample, post it, wear it, and review it?
