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

@alexasteph  Thank you.  I'm a little banged up, but I'm so much better than I would have been if he'd hit me even a second later.  My poor car wasn't as lucky as me though.  Smiley Sad

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Better the car than you though! Here's to a speedy recovery and a fast return to normalcy! I've never needed to deal with something like this before, but I can imagine it's quite a headache. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

For sure, @alexasteph !  A car is just a car, it can be replaced.  It was definitely not how I wanted to start my day that day!  But I have good insurance and the company has good insurance.  It's a headache, but I'm really glad that at least I won't have to pay out a ton of money.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

 

I wore Atelier Rose Anonyme for my mid-day lunch date with the hubs!  LOVE this scent so much!

 

 I am never running out since I own FS, Mini Spray and 6 (which totals 1.50 oz) DS bottles. Obsessed!

 

 

Top Notes: Calabrian bergamot, Chinese ginger, Turkish rose essence
Heart Notes: Turkish rose absolute, Somalian incense, Oud
Base notes: Indonesian patchouli, Indian papyrus, Laotian benzoin

1- Atelier Gold Leather
2- Atelier Rose Anonyme

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

that is one of my favorite atelier scents! it's SO nice! i don't love rose on it's own, but i could take a bath in that one @wheeeee!

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Same here!!!!

 

Maybe because 'regular rose' scents (like Jo Malone Red Roses) tend to wear off quick and are very lightly scented.

 

This type is more Rose/Oud and those 2 are my favorite scents. This one is more like Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Oh, this one sounds lovely! I've added it to my Loves list. This challenge is probably going to have the same effect on my wallet as last month's lipstick challenge...

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I recommend you try a sample from Sephora.  It changes scent at first and then it finally settles on you. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

That tin is beautiful.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I know, right. I'm on the hunt for that exact gift set right now. I hope it wasn't a LE because even though I'm on a low-buy, I will buy it if I find it. 

 

EDIT: I found it. And other versions. And when you send a gift card from Atelier direct they include a set of 12 sample vials. What have I done to myself. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

You bought it???  @alexasteph

 

If you order direct (the Sampler)  you get that money back (as credit) to spend on a new fragrance.  I am not sure this is posted.  They come in a pack with the postcards just the same as Sephora. It is really nice.

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@wheeeee thank u for this tip! Do they have this sample pack thing all the time? Or is just now? Because if so I'll get it now and decide after I smell them all lol 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

@jen143xo

 

Yes, it is available all the time.  

 

The only thing that changed is the newly added exclusions because we were getting 'free' perfume at one point!  lol!!

 

I PM'd you the link. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I saw that during my research. I haven't purchased it yet, but I am strongly considering it. Trying to decide what set, and I'd definitely work their sample/giftcard scheme to get some more vials haha. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Totally!  (why I posted this for you) 

Sephora only carries a tiny selection and if you buy direct the sampler/credit is the best way to shop. 

 

 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

...what have you done to me...

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I'm on a downward spiral with this right now. 

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

Ugh, that packaging! It sounds like such a gorgeous scent! Going to check that one out right now...

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

this is one of my favorites of all time. absolutely adore this rose. do you have the candle by chance ?? Smiley Happy

Re: 31 Days of Perfume Challenge

I don't!  I haven't tried Atelier candles. Have you?

Day 17Rahat Loukoum by Serge Lutens

 

 

Smells like cherries! Slightly medicinally when first sprayed, but dries down quickly into a really interesting almondy gourmand. 

 

I really, REALLY like this! Smiley Very Happy

 

 

Notes:

Aldehydes, almond, cherry, hawthorn, rose, heliotrope, white honey, vanilla, tonka bean, balsam, musk
