Dior Homme Intense.
Tomorrow will be the last day of February so it's not only time for stats but the Spring is officially just round the corner!
This has been a very busy month for me: there's a floor renovation in our flat which means loads of deconstructing (and eventually constructing) bookshelves and emptying one room at the time, moving furniture all over the place etc etc etc, so there's plenty of comfy scents in my list:
9 Jour de Fête
5 DZING!, Nostalgia
2 Angel, L’Eau d’Ambre Extrême, Santal Noble, Tibetan Musk (DSH)
What did you wear most during this month?

And while thy breeze floats o'er thee, matchless flower, I breathe thy perfume, delicate and strong,
That comes like incense from thy petal-bower; My fancy roams those southern woods along...

and then some x 1 frags. I also did a fair amount of sampling, as I seem to go in spurts on that.

I did a bunch of sampling this month, so lots of one-time wears.
I really need a full bottle of UFdC.
It was an odd month for me with several days of not wearing any fragrance! As I get older, I just can't wear scent when not feeling up to par. Anyway, I did have two repeaters this month: Un Bois Vanille with 3 wearings and Love's True Bluish Light with 2.
I've trademarked the color bleu
