    Default Most worn in May?

    The Spring has come to an end, tomorrow the Summer will start. It's time for stats, fellow nerdettes & nerds!

    May was unusually warm here this year, and it shows in my stats:
    5 Vétiver (Carven)
    4 Mitsouko, Shaal Nur
    3 Femme, Melograno, Patchouli (Lorenzo Villoresi)
    2 Bel Ami, Encens et Lavande, En Passant, Folavril, Lemon Sorbet, Mauboussin, Vetiver (Etro)

    In the beginning of the month I wore Chypres and scents with leather and patchouli notes, revisited scents I hadn't worn for a long time and when the temperature rose, it was time for citrus and vetiver...

    What did you wear in May?

    Hello, Tigs and fellow record-keepers! May was all over the map for me, matching our unusually wide-ranging weather patterns. I wore lots of things, ranging from cuddly-wintery to light & summery. Fragrances worn more than once:

    Parfumerie Generale Felanilla – 2x
    Caron Poivre – 2x
    L'Artisan Parfumerie Poivre Piquant – 2x

    I also grabbed Rose Poivree one day, so I see a pepper pattern. Not sure why, except that I love pepper! :-)

    I haven't been keeping track, but I know I've worn Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia at least a dozen times since I received it, and that it's gotten the most use this past month.

    I'm reminded now what an ugly month May was time-control-wise. There were days I wore no scent and/or failed to record it.

    Guerlain was the clear leader:
    4x With Love
    3x Mitsouko

    Here's to a more fun and fragrant June!

    2 x Christian Dior - Dune
    2 x Penhaligon's - Lily & Spice

    I stopped keeping track mid-month when I got work-swamped, but I mostly sampled in May, unable to adhere to my FB challenge. Well, who cares about challenges when all the rest of the life is about them, why not have fun when it comes to perfume?

    My most worn was Lancome Poeme which I truly love, but it was only 4 times this month. I wore Miracle a couple of times, and the rest were samples. The house of the month was DSH since I brought some samples of her from my trip to Boulder in the very beginning of May.

    I hope I will be able to keep better track in June, but I know that again I will be sampling mostly.

    Went to Hawaii and wore Cristalle the entire time. Loved it! At home in Ct., Baghari & Mitsouko & Diorella. May seems to be the "break out the chypres" month.

    I wore Purple Patchouli the most. I have a large sample in my purse, and I often put it on after my morning fragrance wears off. It was not love a first sniff, but now I love it. I'm a newbie and it took me a while just to pick the patchouli out of the scent. It was just so 'different' than other patchoulis I was used to.
