    Default Random Fragrance Challenges

    Have you ever set yourself a scent challenge?

    Like going without applying a fragrance for a week or maybe a month - just to clear your senses so maybe you can appreciate the smell of a good frag when you come after a week?

    Or perhaps wearing a fragrance you hate for a week just to see if it can turn you around?

    I have done similar things...

    For example when I am fasting, I don't wear fragrance, its part of denying myself any pleasures. Thant said, I have never fasted for a week, let alone a month!

    To clear my senses, I find that swimming helps, and you do have to submerge for many minutes.

    I have worn a lot of fragrances I did not like for 2 or 3 dyas, just to see exactly what were they thinking. It can be torture though.

    Good questions.

    Yes, knowing full well I didn't like it, I bought a bottle of Bulgari Black just because it's a highly rated fragrance (& was cheap in TKMaxx !) The challenge was that I would "learn" to like it, or at least appreciate it.

    I've failed the challenge -still don't "get" it or like it ! I've learnt that there is no point in my trying too hard to like something, just because it has a great reputation. Different strokes etc...

    No...to me that would be trying to prove something to myself....about the closest thing I have donw is limited my collection to a dirty dozen fragrances that I really like, mostly just to have higher enjoyment and save money.

    For me, just going all the way through my whole rotation is a challenge of discipline. While doing so, I reclassify the scents in their families if I feel they deserve it, I refresh my memory of which ones I like the most, and I pick out ones that I might chuck. I try to give the ones that I'm about to get rid of a few days of wear to really identify what I don't like about it, and write a review for the site. I've never tried to "learn to like" a fragrance as Indigo described.

    Yeah this is what I'm doing. I'm selling a lot of the fragrances I don't truly enjoy. It's one of those things where I think, "but what if in awhile, you crave it again!" I'm pretty much convinced that I could get rid of them though. I prefer selling them and getting ones I know I love, instead of ones I'm pretty sure I like.
