    Default Most worn in July 2014

    Another month has come to an end, and it's time for stats, fellow nerds & nerdettes! Mine look like this, how about yours?

    4 Côte d’Amour, Shaal Nur
    3 DZING!, Lemon Sorbet
    2 CdG 3, Bandit, Eau de Camille, Encens et Lavande, La Myrrhe, Magot, Palais Jamais, Sous le Buis, Vetiver (Etro)

    July has been unusually hot here in Helsinki, and it shows: green and citrusy stuff was in order. Etro was the house of the month.

    Looking forward to cooler days in August!

    This year, clear favorites are emerging more obviously than ever before.

    July's darlings were Bois de Violette (5x) and Bel Respiro (4x).

    I wore AbdesSalaam Chilum quite a few times this month; probably 4+; and MonteCristo is right there too at about 4 or 5 wears. Excited to wear both a lot more this fall while watching football!

    Gosh, I think I was trying out a lot of samples this month, so don't know that I repeated an awful lot - during the days, that is. When it came to the evenings, I tended to wear heavy dousings of the following:

    Mazzolari Lui (from a big sample)
    Meharees
    Muscs Khoublai Khan
    Masque Tango
    Ambre Precieux
    Chanel No. 22 parfum
    Sideris (wore this one A LOT)
    Fate Woman
    Shalimar Parfum Initial L'Eau

    I need to try Mazzolari Lui and Musc Khoublai Kahn :-/

    How do you like Tango Claire? I just bought it earlier this month. I love the whole warm amber/bubble gum/spice/floral vibe.

    I LOVE the Tango, Ryan - the notes are right up my alley. I did see you describe it elsewhere as a being an amber-bubblegum scent, which did make my heart sink a bit and wonder if I was smelling it all wrong. But on subsequent wearings, I still get a cumin-y, thick amber with a slight note of freshness that I believe comes from the clover note? No bubblegum for me, thank God! But I agree there is something to the sweet, spicy thickness that reads as gourmand, somehow....anyway, I love it. But as for your darling Montecristo, well, I know you love it but I don't get the lovely muskiness on my skin that you describe - very disappointing.

    If you can, get a decant of MKK that is drawn from one of the export bottles that have been knocking around for the last few years - MKK was recently returned to the exclusives line up (the bell jars) only available in the Paris salon, and many people have been saying there has been a reformulation to go with that move. The export bottle stuff is supposed to be still excellent, and I was able to buy three 8ml decants of it from a Basenoter who sells decants out of Austria.

    Only 4 repeats for me last month: 2x each of Ormonde Jayne Frangipani Absolute, By Kilian Beyond Love, Serge Lutens Daim Blond, and Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine. All the rest were single wears, heavily dominated by white florals.

    Most worn house was Serge Lutens (8) -- by a lot.

    Oops! ErinK reminded me about MadHat Limed. I wore that at least 2 or 3 times last month.

    My repeats are as follows:

    8x Jicky

    4x Iris Prima, Infusion d'Iris, Givenchy III (at least 4, there were several days of wearing G III and not logging it)

    2x Iris d'Argent

    I wore the fabulous Madhat Limed at least a handful of times, but didn't track officially as it's not in the directory.

    I wore a lot of fragrances twice, but none more than that, so for me July was a month spent enjoying variety rather than favorites.

    Most worn in July were Ananas Fizz and Bruno Acampora Musc oil thrice each.
    Not to mention my bedtime staple Réminiscence Patchouli which is always my most worn.

    Hey Artisankey! Long time, no smell Nice to see you back!

    As for my wearings in July, I did not keep very accurate stats. Hopefully, August will be a less busy month for me and I can get back to posting my SOTD daily.
    I've trademarked the color bleu
