    Post October usage stats!

    I thought I'd waste some time by compiling usage stats from our SOTD threads.
    Of course, this turned into a greater task than I had anticipated, so this is data from only part of the month (13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29. I just went down the list of search results, which is why some days are missing right now).

    I counted all frags for my personal list, but this public compilation will only show frags with more than two usages in the above-mentioned days. It's possible that I left out one or two frags that were used twice or three times, since I am pretty tired. I know for a fact that CK be is missing from the list, but I think that one scored a 3 or 4.

    I combined Rive Gauche edt and Rive Gauche Intense, since they are pretty similar. If people layered, I counted each layer as its own frag. I also counted the frags that were posted by women or that were 'female' frags (although the only result that got onto this list was Chypre Rouge, thanks to tigrushka ) I didn't count deo, aftershave, lotion, etc as its own frag unless it was the only thing a person was wearing. And obviously, if a person switched frags halfway through the day, I counted both.

    The actual list of frags spanned four pages each containing 3 columns in my tiny handwriting, so... you guys sure know how to shop! It was fun watching patterns emerge, either by the day or by the user.

    Surprised that Geir only had 4 users .

    Nice work greyhue! I was pretty surprised with the low usage of Kouros as well. It seems that for everyone that despises this frag, thier are just as many who like it. Still, it doesn't seem like enough people wear it?

    ben,

    hell of a list. interesting to see how things change, or stay the same.

    coconut, you've worn some great ones this month.
    "...The history of perfumery before this subdivision of niche was manufactured, both literally and imaginatively, is a long one, with thousands upon thousands of fragrances. The true fragrance lover takes each fragrance one at a time, and examines it preferably outside of the imaginatively manufactured categories and, in doing so, builds up a steady, informed basis for seasoned comparative judgments based on the sampling and information gathered from such sampling. This is why any one on the board who ever has anything particular interesting to say about fragrances as fragrances rather than as categorical constructs always has an abiding interest and passion for all kinds of fragrances and not just a narrow niche of fragrances. Conversely, the "niche whores," the more and more narrow their interests become, the more and more they mimic the ad copy of the very companies they worship. I know whose posts I like to read..."

    I've been pretty monogamous to London for a while, wearing it maybe 4 or 5 days a week since I bought it a month ago. Its not reflected in GHoD's table because I don't usually post in the SOTD thread. I'm sure there are many other frags that have been worn by Basenoters, but mss the table simply because the data collecting (i.e. SOTD-thread-crunching) only catches those who post.

    True. The ironic thing is that I only post about half the time in the SOTD thread. If I had included my own frags, the list would look substantially different, as I wear two or three per day.
