Thread: Most worn in May
Statistics time again! Here are mine for May:
8 Eau de Charlotte
7 La Myrrhe
4 Datura Noir
Unusually floral month for me, old spring fave Eau de Charlotte is the winner, but a tie with new love La Myrrhe was very, very close.

Here are my April stars:-
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
I am sure you meant to say May, Tigs
There are holes in my documentation for this month, but it seems like only one scent got worn more than two times.
3 wearings: Ambre Sultan
2 wearings: Jour de Fête, Mure et Musc, Ivoire, Parfum Sacré, Zest de Rose, Poussière de Rose (started my unofficial "rose trial month" in the middle of May)
14 different scents worn.
I had only 1 repeat for the month of May and it was Ambre Sultan. (I can't believe that I only wore Angel once! that's very unusual for me)
I tested several fragrances this month: Jacomo de Jacomo, Tommy Girl, Encens et Lavande, Very Irrisistible, Tea for Two, and L de Lolita Lempicka.
I've trademarked the color bleu
LV Musk 2
Vanille Banane(CSP) 2
(Ozwald Boateng Red, Pure Purple, Vanille Passion, Vanille Givree des Antilles, Vanille Noire de Mexique, Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar, Clean Fresh Laundry, Un Lys, J`Adore, Euphoria, Fracas, Burberry Brit, Tendenza for her, L`Eau d`Issey, L`Heure Bleue, Eternity Summer-06, Rose Essentielle, Apres L`Ondee, Blackberry & Vanilla Musk.....one wearing each)
Everything passes. Everything changes. Just do what you think you should do.
Did some sampling this month (SL Muscs Koublaï Khän, MPG Route du Vétiver, Matthew Williamson Incense, Cuir Beluga, Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe) yet still managed to have two repeats: Tabac Blond and Shalimar parfum.
"I felt something so intense, I could only express it in a perfume." - Jacques Guerlain
Bois des Iles 3 times.
Flora Nerolia, Jicky, Ginger Musk, Brandy, Rive Gauche, Sous le Buis, Sweet Oriental Dream, Fleurs de Citronnier, and Chergui 2 times.
Etro Heliotrope, Poup'ee, Lovely Cherry Blossom, Ysatis, Vol de Nuit, Murasaki, Sublime, Cristalle edp, Diorissimo, Mediterraneo 1 time.
Holy cow--I was scattered all over the place this month. I had no idea--thus, the genius of keeping records.
Besides sniffing around Disney while on vacation (and often wearing Cucumber Baie and Orange Blossom), the numbers are:
1x--Dzing, Noa Fleur, Stella, VIP Room, Mira Bai, With Love, Secrete Datura, Jicky
2x--Black Vetyver Cafe, La Chasse, New Haarlem
3x--L'Eau de Figue
Have to note the beauty of VIP Room (soft leather and florals), however, because I have Dzing!, and VIP Room is pricey, plus it is not especially long-lasting, nor is the label on the bottle pretty, I'll be able to resist buying it. Wouldn't mind if a decant came into my life. Will retest and ponder that.
Not really sure, but I think my new Tubereuse Criminelle is the most worn.

Organza First Light 2x
Others were worn only once and they are: Herve Leger, Tender Touch, Lipstick Rose, Agent Provocateur, Le Baiser du Dragon, Mauboussin, Poême, Eden, Gloria, Trouble, Miss Dior Cherie, Flower and today WOMAN

How do you guys keep records?
Please, spritz responsibly.

Carnal Flower and D'Orsay's Tilleul, I think.
I made an excel spreadsheet with a list of my fragrances, and categorized them. I kept a log for May of what fragrances I sampled, their notes, how I felt about the fragrances, a list of what I would like to try, what I would like a full bottle or decant of. I made it a project. What can I say, I'm a geek.Originally Posted by Shycat
I just look back at my SotD posts, but, sherrie11, you're the coolest geek!Originally Posted by sherrie11
I'm grateful for the organizing that basenotes' "wardrobe" feature for tracking the overall testing experience.
