    Default Most worn in December, 4th Quarter, 2nd Half and the year 2012

    Since I'll stick with Bandit tomorrow, too, my last stats for 2012 are ready to roll!

    December:
    5 Fille en Aiguilles
    4 A Fleur de Peau, Eau du Ciel
    3 Bandit, Dzongkha, Eau de Cologne Impériale, Folavril, Sel de Vétiver
    2 La Myrrhe, Loukhoum, Rose Kashmirie, Sublime, Zagorsk

    Fourth Quarter:
    13 Yohji
    7 Bandit
    6 L’Heure Bleue, Ormonde

    Second Half:
    13 Yohji
    9 Ormonde
    8 Mitsouko
    7 Bandit
    6 L’Heure Bleue, Voleur de Roses
    5 Amazone, Eau du Ciel, Fille en Aiguilles, Messe de Minuit, Sublime, Zagorsk

    2012:
    39 Dzongkha
    24 Safran Troublant
    19 DZING!
    14 Coeur d’été, Mitsouko
    13 Ormonde, Yohji
    11 Vétiver Oriental
    9 Encens et Lavande, L’Heure Bleue
    7 Amazone, Bandit, Messe de Minuit
    6 Black Cashmere, Voleur de Roses
    5 Eau du Ciel, Fille en Aiguilles, Sublime, Zagorsk

    This year was quite exceptional because I spent three months in Edinburgh, Scotland last Spring and packed only three scents with me (yes, the top three!). This also shows in the unusually low number of Encens et Lavande wears: it's my #1 choice after Saturday night sauna, and this year I missed many. After returning home I wanted to cherish my all-time faves (Yohji!) and also revisit forgotten old faves (Keiko Mecheris).

    What did you wear this year?

    A lot of Balmain, Ava-Luxe (everyone I know loves Moss and LTBL) and Guerlain. When I went on my vacation, I limited myself to packing samples so that I would have options, then I bought Rose Oil in Bulgaria and wore that instead!

    Lots of vintage Arpege eau de Lanvin. Then Shalimar Legere and vintage Magie Noire. Then vintage Krizia Teatro la Scalla and Vol de Nuit.

    What I learned:
    • The scents I wear most often are pretty much broken into winter/summer timing.
    • Three of my most-worn scents were new* to me. The other two were discovered within the past two to three years.
    • I also figured out these are much better as bedtime scents: Boucheron, 24 Faubourg, Mitsouko, Black Vetyver Cafe, Dark Amber & Ginger Lily

    December for me was Bottega Venetta and Hypnotic Poison/HP Elixir.

    Fourth quarter: Hypnotic Poison Elixir, Field Notes, Drole De Rose, Prada L'eau Ambree, EL Pleasures Delight. Though Field Notes has become more of a tobacco & dryer sheet scent to me, which is like totally unappealing! Ever since I thought of dryer sheets...I don't want to wear the scent hardly at all, lol.

    2nd half: lol, I'd different samples and those from sample passes, lol.

    2012: L'artisan Drole de Rose, Ineke Evening Edged In Gold samples, Prada L'eau Ambree, Bottega Veneta samples, Chanel Beige samples, Field Notes From Paris Ineke, Vanilla and Anise Jo Malone samples-until I really started picking up that tuberose note more, lol, Hypnotic Poison/Hypnotic Poison Elixir, EL Pleasures Delight, MJ Daisy, Hermes Caleche Eau Delicate and various orange/orange blossom scents.

    For December, I had no repeats. I tested two new-to-me scents: L'Heure de Nuit (LOVED it!) and Le Labo Santal 33 (did NOT love it!).

    That's the best I do on the stats ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    2 x Sables, Monsoon, Like This, Stoned, Samsara, Alien LdP, Fracas & Allure

    1 x L'Heure Bleue, Champagne de Bois, Amber Absolute, Addict, L'Air de Rien, Alien EA, Lumiere Noire, Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle, lncense Extreme & Absolue pour le Soir.

    A total of 25 scents worn, house of the month; Guerlain. Very little sampling this month; no time!

    Last quarter top ten(ish);

    11 x Shalimar
    10 x Ghost
    9 x L'Instant
    8 x Royal Egyptian Amber & Honeysuckle, lmperial Opoponax & Stoned

    9 x Cinema, Tiptoeing Through Chambers of the Moon, Un Matin d'Orage & Alien LdP.

    l notice this list is dominated by what l call my winter scents. l think this is partly because l own less of them & therefore wear them more, but also because we had only about a fortnight of summer this year!
