    Default Most worn in January

    Since I'll wear L'Heure Bleue tomorrow, too, my first stats for 2008 are ready:

    6 Antihéros
    4 Jasmin et Cigarette, L’Heure Bleue
    3 Charogne, Dzongkha, N’Aimez Que Moi
    2 Champaca, Eau Impériale, Folavril, Poivre Piquant, Rossy de Palma, Safran Troublant, Sécrétions Magnifiques, Vierges et Toreros, Vraie Blonde

    January started and ended with Guerlain scents: Eau Impériale and L'Heure Bleue.

    Some L'Artisans were also on the menu. But the main event of the month was ordering Etat Libre d'Orange sample pack. Antihéros became an instant workhorse lavender, Jasmin et Cigarette and Charogne were another favourites.

    What do your stats look like?

    I've got to admit, I probably wore Burnt Amber more than anything else.
    But I also wore many Madini's, and Ava-Luxes- particularly Ambra Tibet and Gardenia Musk.
    Lots of Tabac Blond.

    I've only just started a database of what I wear every day. Even though I have hardly any perfumes, I like doing organised stuff like this!

    Revlon Fire & Ice - 8
    Miss Dior Cherie - 6
    Guerlain Cherry Blossom Fruity/L de Lolita Lempicka - 3
    Davidoff Echo Woman/Champs Elysees - 2
    Pink Sugar/Midnight Fantasy - 1


    5 days are unaccounted for, as I hadn't started recording what I wore each day yet. I can bet those days were PROBABLY spent in Fire & Ice, and maybe a couple in Echo Woman. I'm looking forward to recording next month!

    Those are adorable dogs, Tavorna!

    I, too, have only a partial month. Since I'm still a beginner, and I like to know how a fragrance will evolve on the skin, many of these days were testing days. (heck, most of my wardrobe is sampler vials.) Also, I know I didn't document every day.

    Looks like Eau de Cartier wins!

    January:
    x3 - Eau de Cartier
    x2 - No. 19, Stella (I know I've worn this more), Mitsouko EDT, Burberry Classic
    x1 - L de Lolita Lempicka, Prada, Bvlgari pour Femme

    Not quite over yet- will probably need to add one or two more of something for the 31st, but for now here is the list:

    8- Coco
    6- Etro Gomma
    3- Lolita Lempicka, Encens et Lavande, Norma Kamali Lavande
    2- Montale Aoud Roses Petals, Trouble, Etro Sandalo, Norma Kamali Perfume, Norma Kamali Incense

    1 off wearings: Asja, Rumba, Etro Patchouly, Winter Delice, Bandit, Fracas, Le Maroc pour elle, L’Air di Desert Marocain, Feminite du Bois, Agent Provocateur, Malmaison Carnation, Angel Innocent, Chanel No 22, Montale Intense Tiare, Jasmine Sambac Solid.


    Tigs- your mention of Safran Troublant makes me once again realize I need to dig out my sample of it and try it again. Now that we can get a bottle by itself, I may have found my first L'Artisan that I really enjoy.
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    Wow, great to see so many new stats keepers! Thanks, everyone for sharing your numbers.

    And for once not a single "how can anyone possibly keep stats?!" post in sight.

    It's very nice, it took some time and testing for me to get it, but I'm glad I did give it a chance.

    I wore YSL's Kouros quite a bit, and also Clinique's Chemistry.

    Only two repeats this month: Dzing! and Coney Island with two wearings. How is that for complete opposites? Serge Lutens was the favored house, with 4 different fragrances worn.

    I tested three new-to-me fragrances: Chinatown, Rose 31, and Maharadjah.
    I've trademarked the color bleu
