Since I know what I'm going to wear for the rest of the week, my stats are ready already!
Now nobody needs to worry about the missing most worn thread on Saturday morning...
5 Encens et Lavande
4 Gomma, Rose Poivrée
3 Eau de Cologne du Coq, Folavril, (L’Occitane) Vetyver
2 Carnation, Douro, Eau du Ciel, La Myrrhe, (Carven) Vétiver
It's been unusually hot here, +30C for most of July, so vetivers, lavenders and citrusy colognes were big this month. CdG Carnation was worn in honor of the Spanish football team and their winning the World Cup!

Orange Channelle is blah, Infusion de Fleur D'Oranger great, Orange Star, wonderful also. I'm stuck on citrus with floral notes to compliment. Soon I'll be looking for the perfect grapefruit fragrance.

Serge Lutens Gris Clair - 2
L'Eau de L'Artisan - 2
KenzoAir - 2
Comme des Garçons Wonderwood - 2

Hello everyone! I'm new here. Nice to meet you all.
I'm wearing Hove Perfumier's Radiance for most of July since we've been having heatwaves and it's the only one that can withstand the heat and still smell amazing after a long day.

33 types of scents used this month
House of the month: L'artisan <- thats summer for me, as most of the L'artisan scents don't last on my skin and they are light enough to be worn in Hong Kong during the hot and humid season.
July hasn't been a very warm, summery month so I've kept wearing my spicy scents + some green scents occasionally also in July.
Here's how my stats look like:
2x: L'ombre dans l'eau
Feminite du bois
I practically lived the month in Chanel no. 19 with a few breaks for Songes, Attrape Couer, Carnal Flower, Rasa and a one night stand with Bandit....oh yes!
"Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189
What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
According to the stats here, my Scents of the Day (along with the occasional Scent of
the Evening) were -
Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie x 5
Aromatics Elixir x 3
Eau des Merveilles x 3
Chamade x 3
So Pretty de Cartier x 3
L'Instant de Guerlain x 2
Rose Cardin x 2

Lorenzo Villoresi Donna x 2
...with single wearings of lots of others.
Hi there Jitterbug Perfume Lover, and welcome to Basenotes! I know Hové's Radiance - such a lush rose! I bet you smell gorgeous!
tigrushka, I normally start a similar thread on the Male forum. But since I don't usually get many responses, I'll join in on your thread this month. I enjoy keeping track of my wearings as well, and here they are for this month:
4x: Allure Edition Blanche, L'eau D'Issey
3x: 212 Men, Bvlgari Aqva, YSL L'homme
2x: Acqua di Gio
1x: Bvlgari Pour Homme, Gendarme, Kenzo Homme, Kenzo Power, L'eau Par Kenzo, Mugler Cologne, Terre d'Hermes, Givenchy Pour Homme Blue Label
I've been wearing Erolfa and Edition Blanche a lot since I discovered them.
Awww Thanks Evangeline! I do smell pretty yummy and lucious! I'm glad you're a fan too! It's so nice to meet you and thanks for the warm welcome
I had one repeat this month and that was Cuir de Lancome with two wearings.
Hello, Jitterbug Perfume Lover, and welcome to Basenotes!
My multiple wearings for July:
L'Artisan Cote d'Amour – 2x
The Different Company Bergamote – 2x
D'Orsay Tilleul – 2x
Annick Goutal Vetiver – 2x
Guerlain Terracotta Voile d'Ete – 2x
Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom – 2x
Comme des Garcons Stephen Jones – 2x
I think my main focus was staying cool!
Another sample-crazy month for me with 70 different fragrances sampled!
By the end of the month though I started to repeat samples more often to make up my mind about them, so I got some sample repeats. Very few love for my FBs this month, which isn't so surprising given the fact that most FBs I have are from my pre-perfumista time, and they are mostly gifts.
x4 Carven Ma Griffe (various years, often layered with each other). Love this perfume. Love it. Love it.
x3 Tocca Guilietta. You see I gave it a chance. But it officially bored me. Off with it!
x2 Serge Lutens Miele de Bois. It does not work. I wish it did but it doesn't.
x2 Annick Goutal Ninfeo Mio. Thanks a very special BNer for a sample decant! I like it a lot. The only reason I didn't wear it more in July is because it's up to the next round of testing. I want to test it in public -- it might be FB worthy.
x2 Nocturnes de Caron. Estee's Beautiful was the point of reference. Need to keep testing -- liked it second time a lot less than the first.
x2 Beautiful. I will end up liking this one after all!
x2 Chinatown. I tell you what, I do like it but I need another Bond #9 I would wear like I need a hole in my head. This stuff is too expensive and the bottles are tacky! But I actually do like Chinatown quite a bit, this Summery combination of peaches, cherries, and wood.
x2 L'Artisan Perfumer Passage d'Enfer. Nope. Not my thing.
x1 -- too many to name all, but the two deserve a mention as discoveries of the month: Naked Honey (oh I wish this wasn't discontinued!) and LouLou.
House of the month -- Estee Lauder, 7 different fragrances.
DSH, L'Occitane, Guerlain - 4 different fragrances.
The very fave was Ma Griffe, the discovery of the month -- Ninfeo Mio, the coveted one -- Fleurs de Rocaille.
Hello Jitterbug Perfume Lover!!
Amazingly to me, the repeats were from samples: Guerlain's Cologne du Parfumeur x4, by Kilian Prelude to Love x2, Mazzolari Alessandro x2. Otherwise I really mixed it up this month.
Thanks again for sharing your stats!
I added 1 wear for Encens et Lavande because I changed into it after sauna last night (as I usually do).

3x Bvlgari Omnia, Estee Lauder Bali Dream
2x Hermes Caleche, Diptyque Philosykos, L de Lolita Lempicka Fleur de Corail, Possets Perfumes Alaska - Midnight Crystals & Shimmering Rainbows
I'm still in the sampling like mad phase of my fragrance journey, so there were lots of single wearings. I'm happy to see that I gave my full bottles some love though.
Sounds like a plan, Plumeria, life is too short for bad days,
and a good frag can cheer one up, like few other things!
Gale Hayman Delicious Cotton Candy 2x
Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise 2x
L'Air du Temps 2x
Lilly Pulitzer Squeeze 2x

One Time Wearings:
Aqua Allegoria Figue-Iris, Beige, Beyond Paradise, Britney Spears Fantasy, Cashmere Mist, Chant d'Aromes, Clarins Eau Ensoleillante Sunshine Fragrance, Coconut edt Yves Rocher, Désir de Nature edt Yves Rocher, Drôle de Rose, Eau des 4 Reines by L'Occitane, Escale à Portofino, Gardenia Passion Annick Goutal, Infini Caron, L'Eau Ambrée, Love's True Bluish Light, Ma Griffe, Marc Jacobs Lemon, Mille et Une Roses, Mitsouko, Nahema, No. 5 edt, Pleasures Delight, Provocative Woman, Rose Absolute Yves Rocher, Rumeur, Vivara, Wind Song, Y, Youth Dew.
My usual sort of mix, plus an inclination toward rose this month. July was a steam bath, and rose scents were cooling and soothing. p.s. And there were frequent face bathings with C.O. Bigelow's Rose Water.
