    Default SOTW First week of August - Back to work

    Tomorrow I’m back for work after my vacation and I’m thinking of trying a SOTW for the office. So the SOTD for Monday to Friday will be the same and the weekend and evenings are free. This might be good to reduce the time for deciding SOTD.

    If I succeed I may be doing this again. But I counting on that it is hard to stick to one. Five days should be possible. But I have not chosen the scent yet. Who is in?

    If I were to have join I probably would've reached for one of my dumb reaches like Chanel Pour Monsieur, Antaeus, and Egoiste.

    I've pretty much been doing this weekly, except I make it more random where I would start on a Wednesday, etc. However, it did line up for me this time and am wearing Virgin Island Water all week!

    Azzaro Azzaro Pour Homme
    Ralph Lauren Polo
    Guerlain Heritage EDT
    Chanel Allure Homme

    Would be my picks if I decided to wear only one to work for a week, the first two easily would work.

    I know. But when you are sticking to a scent you are certainly doing it like a boss

    Nice! You have been an inspiration to this I guess. VIW is a solid choice too, enjoy!

    Not house, more choosing between suitable scents. I was close on Xerjoff Nio so that is a challenger in the coming weeks, but now I chose Neroli Portofino:

    Thanks, bud. It's tough, but being able to change it up in the evening definitely helps! Even then, I've had to abort mid-week and go with another. lol

    I think Neroli Portofino is an excellent choice! Nio is coming up for me as well, so I agree on that choice as well. Good luck and welcome back to work.

    Day 2 - Tom Ford - Neroli Portofino

    So far so good. It's kind of nice not to have to decide the SOTD.

    I have to SOTW, workdays, Monday through Thursday.
    We use to have a SOTW thread, unless a new thread was started at the beginning of each week.

    Looking through my wardrobe, any of these would work for a week straight, or more:

    1. Tuscany;

    2. Versace L'Homme;

    3. Quorum;

    4. Polo;

    5. Moschino Pour Homme;

    6. Ho Hang Club;

    7. Jules;

    8. Habit Rouge;

    9. Gucci Pour Homme (1976);

    10. Givenchy Gentleman;

    11. Giorgio for Men;

    12. Egoiste;

    13. Derby;

    14. Davidoff;

    15. Chypre-Siam;

    16. Pour Monsieur;

    17. Pour Monsieur Concentree;

    18. Antaeus;

    19. Bel Ami; and

    20. Bijan for Men.

    These last pretty well. Bijan has been doing better on me recently. The ones that don't last as long don't seem to fit the theme as well.

    If not never ever, did hardly ever wear one and the same fragrance in a row, during the same week.
    However if ever considering to do so-would likely choose anything from the options listed in the personal post/reply about dumb reach fragrances, among the likeliest choices being Mugler Cologne as a constant SOTW mainstay.

    I've created some and participated in some but if there more active now then I must have missed it. Monday to Thursday is a nice idea.


    Day 4 - Neroli Portofino
    Still enjoyable even if there is a small itch to just wear something new, nothing in particular though. Will easily wear it tomorrow as well.

    I'm on Day 3 of Black Vetyver Cafe. Vetivers are so easy to wear repeatedly.

    P.S. I occasionally do sample testing at night.

    No it's been a while since we've had a SOTW thread. I,like always, am wearing Polo today. Wore it Monday through today.

    Nice! I have never seen that one. Cafe as in coffee?


    Day 5 of 5 and the week is complete. Really satisfied with the scent. Think I will do it again next week

    Day 5 of Virgin Island Water - great way to smell on a Friday!

    Technically, it's day 6 since I actually started last Sunday. Can't wait to see what next week will bring!
