    Default Most worn in January '09

    Time for the first stats in 2009!

    Mine look like this, what do yours look like?

    7 N’Aimez Que Moi
    6 Messe de Minuit
    4 Encens et Lavande
    3 Farnesiana, Poivre
    2 Coup de Fouet, Five O’Clock au Gingembre, Jicky, Louve, Luctor et Emergo, New York, Nuit de Noël, Serge Noire, Shalimar

    Caron and incense were big this month, so were spices. Not surprising since January is the coldest month of the year (at least here in Finland).

    Hi Tigrushka! I've never done this before. Part of my month was spent on vacation in a warmer clime, so that skewed my results a bit. The only fragrances I wore more than once were the following:

    Kai - twice
    Fleur de Liane - twice
    Dzonghka - three times

    It was a month of exploration for me. Quite a number of tropicals and incenses in the mix, I notice.

    For me it would be Zibeline. I wore it for 8 days +, day and night, that would make 16 times. Cuir de Lancome would be second, 3 days and counting, day and night would be 6 times. I guess Prelude by Balenciaga would be next, probably wore that 5 times.
    I guess I am a bit of a 'creature-of-habit', as the saying would go.

    Totals:
    Zibeline-16 times
    Cuir-6 times
    Prelude-5 times

    I don't know the exact numbers but Dzing!, No5 and Lolita Lempicka I wore most this month. I wore Jungle L'Elephant during my vacation in a tropical climate.

    Finally a month in which I kept track of what I wore!
    6x Tam Dao
    5x Dark Amber & Ginger Lily
    3x Moroccan Mint Tea, Jour de Fête
    2x Ambre Narguilé, Jil Sander Sun, Marc Jacobs Blush, Anthousa Fig & Vetiver
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Wow, it's somewhat relieving to see that others do wear something more than 7 days in a given month.

    I have never tried to tabulate my wears before, but it's rather easy with the search function. I thought I hadn't worn much else, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I did.

    27 wears: Montana Parfum d'Homme (red box) (only not on Jan 3, 6, 11, and 12)
    2 wears: Versace Black Jeans
    1 wear: Le Labo Rose 31
    1 wear: Neil Morris' Prowl
    1 wear: Hermes Un Jardin en Mediterranee
    1 wear: Antonio Banderas' (Puig) Spirit for Women
    1 wear: Halston Couture
    1 wear: Neil Morris' Woodland Strawberries
    1 wear: Cartier's Must de Cartier (women's version)
    1 wear: Caron's Yatagan
    1 wear: Ava Luxe Cafe Noir
    1 wear: Night Blossom/Hindu Kush
    1 wear: L'Air du Desert Marocain
    1 wear: Rive Gauche Pour Homme
    1 wear: Paul Smith Story
    1 wear: Le Labo Labdanum 18

    And now, like Dimitri, I will probably go and arrange my bottles with the nozzles pointing forward so they will get more usage.

    Aiona, I admire your focus with one fragrance. I feel like I have extreme ADD with fragrances!

    My repeated wears this month aren't very wintry, but then again, we don't really get winter in San Diego:

    La Chasse aux Papillons
    BeBee by Roxana Illuminated Perfumes
    Kingdom
    Cabaret
    Rochas Femme
    JM White Jasmine & Mint

    A total of 40 different types of scents worn in Jan 2009.
    2 x Shalimar by Guerlain
    2 x Saso by Shiseido
    The rest are single application.
    House of the month: Guerlain
    Observation of the month: There is a tendency to reach for richer, sweeter, incensy types of perfume.

    I had no repeats this month. The house with most wearings was Serge Lutens with three, followed by Bond, Bulgari, and Boucheron with two.

    I sampled three new-to-me scents: Fresh Strawberry Flower, Parfumerie Generale Querelle, and Miller Harris Cuir d'Oranger.

    Three times for Pink Sugar. I can explain!

    I nearly went off scent this winter, for reasons that still are not clear. It may have been the unfamiliar climate. When I did wear scent, I only wanted the sweetest things I could get my hands on. I tried to force tropical scents on rainy, windy Key West, and I failed; after Thanksgiving I wore Castelbajac in western VA and I never want to smell it again.

    I've also worn Lutens' FdO, Datura Noir, and Chanel No. 19.
