    Default Most worn in March and 1st Quarter of 2020

    Hello, fellow nerdettes and nerds! There are still two days of March left, but since I'm sticking with Jicky, my stats are ready to roll, and they look like this.

    March
    5 Mouchoir de Monsieur, Yerbamate
    4 Bana Banana, Couleur Vanille, Traversée du Bosphore
    3 Jicky, N’Aimez que Moi, Shalimar
    2 Mauboussin, Rose Absolue, Violet Ida

    I stuck to comfy & cuddly scents, Classics, and tested two new L'Artisan scents.

    First Quarter
    6 Shalimar
    5 Yerbamate
    4 Bana Banana, Champaca (OJ), Couleur Vanille, Hinoki, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Traversée du Bosphore ,Vetiver (Etro)

    What did you wear in March and first three months of this year?

    No repeats for me this month as I recall.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Most worn in March:


    1 Verveine / Verbena by L'Occitane 7 wears
    2 Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic by Guerlain 5 wears
    3 Les Amoureux de Peynet by Molinard 5 wears
    4 Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante by Guerlain 3 wears
    5 Le Baiser du Dragon by Cartier 3 wears
    6 Shalimar Eau de Parfum by Guerlain 3 wears
    7 Salvador Dali by Salvador Dali 3 wears
    8 Narciso Rodriguez for Her L'Absolu by Narciso Rodriguez 2 wears
    9 Shalimar Eau de Toilette by Guerlain 2 wears
    10 Acqua Colonia Lime & Nutmeg by 4711 2 wears
    11 Samsara Eau de Toilette by Guerlain 2 wears
    12 Twilight by Gorilla Perfume [Lush] 2 wears
    13 Black Opium Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent 2 wears
    14 Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Femme by Gucci 2 wears
    15 Shalimar Cologne by Guerlain 2 wears
    16 Terre de Lumière by L'Occitane 2 wears
    17 Terre de Lumière L'Eau by L'Occitane 2 wears
    18 I'm Home by Gorilla Perfume [Lush] 2 wears
    19 Méharées by L'Erbolario 2 wears
    Everything else got just 1 wear. I sampled A LOT this month. When I wasn't sampling, I found myself gravitating mostly to citrusy fragrances this month with some days when I was favouring ambers, orientals or woody scents more. I also found I was actually wanting to smell lavender which is very unusual for me. It does help to calm down, I guess. And also was craving for some ginger, but that's not unusual, I do love ginger.


    As for the first quarter... I'll do the math later.

    Edit: I came back to do the "later" part - My Most Worn in the 1st Quarter of 2020. This paints quite an interesting picture:


    17 Verveine / Verbena by L'Occitane
    11 Shalimar Eau de Parfum by Guerlain
    10 Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDT by Narciso Rodriguez
    9 Les Amoureux de Peynet by Molinard
    8 Méharées by L'Erbolario
    8 Frescaessenza by L'Erbolario
    7 Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Femme by Gucci
    7 Black by Bulgari
    7 Dali Wild by Salvador Dali
    7 Terre de Lumière by L'Occitane
    7 Le Baiser du Dragon by Cartier
    6 Black Opium Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent
    6 Samsara Eau de Toilette by Guerlain
    6 Pink Grapefruit by Body Shop
    5 Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic by Guerlain
    5 Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante by Guerlain
    5 Salvador Dali by Salvador Dali
    4 Contradiction by Calvin Klein
    4 Narciso Rodriguez for Her L'Absolu by Narciso Rodriguez
    3 Narciso Eau de Parfum Rouge by Narciso Rodriguez
    3 Black Opium Neon by YSL
    3 Jovan Musk Oil by Jovan
    3 Pink Sugar by Aquolina
    3 Baptême du Feu by Serge Lutens
    2 Lait et Chocolat by Chabaud Maison de Parfum
    2 Shalimar Eau de Toilette by Guerlain
    2 Shalimar Eau de Cologne by Guerlain
    2 Shalimar Cologne by Guerlain
    2 Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune by Guerlain
    2 Aqua Allegoria Passiflora by Guerlain
    2 Acqua Colonia Lime & Nutmeg by 4711
    2 Terre de Lumière L'Eau by L'Occitane
    2 Narciso Eau de Toilette by Narciso Rodriguez
    2 Twilight by Gorilla Perfume [Lush]
    2 I'm Home by Gorilla Perfume [Lush]
    2 La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto Eau de Toilette Florale by Guerlain
    2 Samsara Eau de Parfum by Guerlain

    All I can say is that I love to dab some Verveine from my mini splash bottle before or after shower, that I was into vanilla and ambery stuff during the winter months and started craving citruses again in March, that I could have a full wardrobe consisting solely of Aquas Allegorias, Narciso Rodriguez scents and various Shalimar versions and be happy, oh, and that I caught a serious case of shalimaritis during these months.

    Single wears all month, but heavy on skank, flowers, and fruit.
