The Random Fragrance Project

What happens when a scented-product collector decides to actually start using stuff up? Randomness, apparently.

  1. RFP Day 4: CLEAN Warm Cotton

    by , 21st November 2011 at 04:07 AM (The Random Fragrance Project)
    I don't think I'm a "shower scent" person. I didn't like the original CLEAN fragrance and, while I don't hate Warm Cotton, I also don't see myself replacing this one. I smell like a laundromat. I don't find myself wanting to scrub the scent off my body the way I did the original fragrance and I'd be OK with this scent on the spouse, but it's just not speaking to me in any meaningful way.

    Very soapy with aquatic notes. It does smell like freshly-laundered towels.
  2. RFP Day 3: La Source

    It was supposed to be a lazy Saturday; instead, it wound up being Errand Day complete with gassing up the car in sub-zero temperatures and coffee that ran out before my errands did.

    Good thing I had this body lotion on - a gift - to help me find my zen. Repeatedly. Even when I wanted to bring my grocery cart to ramming speed. (I don't shop well, which is why nearly all of my commerce is now conducted online.)

  3. RFP Day 2: Amazing Grace

    I've just reapplied this one with a fairly heavy hand and I still couldn't tell you what it smells like. If I hold my wrist up to my nose, I can tell that I'm wearing something that registers as perfume and gives me a lingering hint of sweetness, almost as if I've spent the morning baking sugar cookies then spent the afternoon outside, but as soon as I'm not literally against my skin, I can't smell a thing.

    A few minutes in, the scents a bit more noticeable after the second application. ...
  4. RFP Day 1: Beautiful

    by , 18th November 2011 at 01:42 AM (The Random Fragrance Project)
    The die rolled in my favor last night: the random number generator chose Beautiful by Estee Lauder for me. My favorite! Yay!

    But! I've worn this one before. So, according to the rules of this project, I have to randomly select my layering lotion. Deep breath, submit. And?

    Bodycology Sweet Petals body cream. Not my favorite - it's pretty strong and I'm a skin-scent kind of girl. (Yes, even with the Estee Lauder scents. I just use less.)

    Gamely, ...

  5. About the Random Fragrance Project.

    I recently discovered basenotes and have found it inspiring - especially the Random Fragrance button on Basenotes and Buysblind's blind sampling thread. Since I'm hardly sophisticated enough to do meaningful blind sampling (and because I have to put my own spin on everything I do), I've opted to randomly choose my scent-of-the-day for the next six months.

    Since I have a combination of fragrances and scented products (lotions, body butters, balms, etc), I'm choosing to use a random number generator ...
