    Default Your Most Worn Fragrances of 2012?

    Which fragrances have you worn the most this year? This doesn't have to parallel your "favorites" necessarily, although for many I'm sure it will. Also, do you think 2013 will be a repeat of these frags, or do you think it will change quite a bit based on more current tastes/recent purchases?

    For me, in 2012 I wore the following the most:

    1. Chanel Allure Homme Sport eau Extreme (it was my default daily workhorse this past 6 months or so)
    2. Gucci Pour Homme II (pretty much my daily default for all things comfortable and casual and my wife quite enjoys it)
    3. Rive Gauche (another versatile daily for me)
    4. Burberry London (a daily-wear staple in colder weather)
    5. Green Irish Tweed (started off wearing this quite often, but then started to "conserve" it a bit more for some reason, and also only wear it occasionally in the colder months)
    6. Terre d'Hermes Parfum
    7. Bond no 9 Riverside Dr.
    8. Aventus
    9. Probably a tie of another 4-5 for the rest.

    This next year, I do think things will change. I've recently picked up some Original Vetiver, Neroli Portofino, a full bottle of LIDGE, and will soon be getting some Silver Mountain Water. I'm finding LIDGE to practically be a "holy grail" type scent for me early in this winter, and the rest I can see getting a lot of use once the weather warms up. Rive Gauche has fallen out of favor with my wife lately, so I'll probably be wearing that less, as well as TdH & RD, which I still like, but just don't find myself compelled to reach for much lately.

    What are yours?

    I try to balance my favorites and casuals so they all get worn and I do tend to switch rotations for different seasons but saying that these get worn quite a bit:

    Millesime Imperial
    Tom Ford Extreme
    Fahrenheit

    Looking forward to next year the two Murdock Fragrances of Black Tea & Patchouli are going to be in heavy rotation with me also adding more frags from their range.

    I cannot know. I've worn a different perfume (sometimes even two or three) almost every day this year.
    I recently wore Kobe and Seville a'Laube a lot but not enough for them to be the most worn.

    I recently noticed my Santal 33 was almsot 40% used.

    So I'll guess it was Santal 33.

    As I really just began this fun back in June/July...

    1) Mont Blanc Legend
    2) Bleu de Chanel
    3) GIT
    4) Cool Water (I know a lot of people think 3 and 4 are the same, but they're not on me. Compared them once, and no stage performed the same on me...like both...wear both)
    5) Tom Ford for Men

    These are about the only ones that I have heavily repeated so far. I've been going crazy with samples, so I mix it up all the time.

    While we may have many frags we love, there's certainly something to be said for the ones we find our self actually having used the most.

    For going out among people :

    Malle's L'Eau d'Hiver

    For myself, at home as a comforting scent :

    L'Artisan's Safran Troublant.

    However, I have worn my pure Oud oils most overall - in particular from Agar Aura:

    This summer I wore Live Jazz almost exclusively. My go to for daily/work wear is rive gauche, though dior homme, sycomore, and penhaligon's sartorial are in the regular rotation. Lately I've been wearing a lot of Chergui and L'Instant Extreme, as the weather has gotten colder.
