    Default Most worn in May 2014

    Will stick with today's scent for tomorrow, too, so my stats are ready to roll and they look like this:

    7 Champaca
    6 Encre Noire
    4 Bois Farine, Vent Vert
    3 Fat Electrician, Vierges et Toreros
    2 Coco, Folavril, Reines Kölnisch Wasser, Vétiver (Carven)

    I was very much in the mood for vetiver. May was unusually warm, so light, fresh and green scents worked fine.

    What did you wear this May?

    OMG, May has been one of these months where I have worn only three fragrances more than once. The lucky ones were;
    Jean Desprez, Bal a Versaille edt
    Acqua di Parma, Iris nobile edp
    Givenchy, Extravagance d'Amarige

    Otherwise I have been all over the place, testing og revisiting

    Yikes - well, at least some good came out of it! Does it still hurt?
    Still tempted to try it sooner or later... *reaches for bottle*

    A happy, end-of-the-month "Terve!" to you, tigrushka.

    I wore 23 different fragrances in May. Ones with multiple appearances are:

    Lalique White -- 3
    TDC Sel de Vétiver -- 3
    Mugler Cologne -- 3
    Comme des Garçons vettiveru -- 2
    Terre d'Hermes Parfum -- 2
    Annick Goutal Vétiver (Les Colognes) -- 2
    And the new L'Eau D'Issey pour homme Yuzu -- 2

    Gosh, a lot of vetiver in there. See you at the end of June.

    Mancera cedrat Boise. I am tempted to immediately buy the one listed on the sales board but i am trying really hard to stick to my rule of not buying the full bottle until my sample is gone. Somehow i dont think that will matter as this fragrance is me and I absolutely love it. This one aint going anywhere and will soon join my collection.

    I didn't keep close track, as I go through these phases where I feel that recording comes at the expense of experienceing, but there was a week or so there when it was all about that magnificent Guerlain: Véga.

    Can't remember! But a lot of Chanel (Cuir de Russie, 31 Rue Cambon, Bois des Iles, La Pausa, Bel Respiro, No. 19) and Guerlain (Mitsouko, Shalimar, Chamade), Shaal Nur, Chypre Palatin, as well as testing some new samples - actually Tango was a clear winner for me in May and I have even joined a split!

    31 samples in 31 days plus I wore what I loved from my bottles in the evening and didn't keep track of those. It was a fun month--a couple new loves (White Fire, 24 Faubourg) but thankfully no scrubbers.
