    Default Most worn in February 2021

    Hello fellow nerdettes and nerds!

    The shortest month of the year is coming to an end tomorrow, but my stats are ready to roll, and they look like this:

    5 L’Air de Rien, Muscs Koublaï Khan, Rien
    4 Jeux de Peau, L’Orpheline, Yohji
    3 Comme des Garçons, Mouchoir de Monsieur

    I was mostly in the mood for my biggest favourites and scents I feel cozy wearing.

    What did you wear in February?

    A direct copy paste from a similar thread, based on the same BN statistics in the order of most frequently worn fragrances during this particular month:

    1 Zino Davidoff by Davidoff 2 wears
    2 Bogart by Jacques Bogart 2 wears
    3 Ambré Noble by Zara 2 wears
    4 Old Spice by Procter & Gamble 2 wears

    With anything else getting either one or no wear over the same interval.

    My February most worn:
    Your most worn (in the last month)

    TodayIn the Last WeekIn the Last MonthIn the Last YearAll Time

    1 Alaïa by Azzedine Alaïa 9 wears
    2 Oh Ma Biche by Lolita Lempicka 5 wears
    3 La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraîche : Ma Robe Pétales by Guerlain 5 wears
    4 Alaïa Nude by Azzedine Alaïa 5 wears
    5 Today by Avon 4 wears
    6 Méharées by L'Erbolario 4 wears
    7 Insolence Eau de Toilette by Guerlain 3 wears
    8 Le Baiser du Dragon by Cartier 3 wears
    9 Samsara Eau de Toilette by Guerlain 3 wears
    10 Mad Madame by Juliette Has a Gun 3 wears


    2 wears: Lolita Lempicka Mon Premier, Jungle, Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune, Al Oudh, Organza, Agent Provocateur, Les Amoureux de Peynet, La vie est belle.
    1 wear: All 20 Etat Libre d'Orange samples from ELdO sample box (You Or Someone Like You, Remarkable People, Spice Must Flow, Eau de Protection were my favourites), Lait et Chocolat, Lyric Woman, Shalimar EDP, Shalimar Philtre de Parfum, Shalimar Souffle Intense, Apres L'Ondee, Eau du Coq, L'heure bleue EDT, Bvlgari Black, Guilty Absolute, Cloud, Lush Twilight, Narciso Rouge, Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT, Narciso Poudree, Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense, Timbuktu, Noir Exquis, Classique EDP, L'Erbolario Assenzio, L'Erbolario Tiare, Versace pour femme, La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto Eau de Parfum Florale, Lace Noir, Blue Silk, Kenzo World.

    I sampled A LOT this month and therefore didn't have the time and skin space to wear my favourites enough. I intentionally left out some of my favourites out of my rotation and will do that for March, too as I'm working from home right now and want to wear more of those scents that I usually don't wear THAT much or do not choose to wear to office usually.

    I suspected to want to wear my winter orientals, vanillas, spices, ambers and big, bold and cozy scents during February - I know I couldn't get enough of them last February, and I did wear them a bit, but the truth is that I actually craved for lighter, fresher, easier to wear scents much more. Maybe it's because I'm already missing spring (February is often the coldest month and March is basically still winter here), maybe it's because I've been mostly indoors anyway and therefore the winter scents didn't get enough of cold winter air to shine, or maybe the lighter, easier scents are what's helping me cope with the world right now the best.

    LPRN Eau Fraiche was a new addition to my wardrobe this month and therefore I wore it quite a lot, and Alaia, Alaia Nude, Today and Oh Ma Biche are my go-to scents right now and will be until I will finish them because to finish up more bottles is one of my goals right now. I'll be sad when Alaia Nude is gone though, I like it a lot. (I like the others too, but I feel like they're less compatible with me, so I'm using my pandemics-home-time to go through them).

    By my count, you had 60 full wears, plus 46 sampling tests. This boggles my mind.

    I can barely get 30 full wearings in a month, with maybe a dozen or so samplings.

    I can't imagine how anyone can find the time for that many different wearings. Are you showering twice a day?

    Default Most worn in February 2021

    I wore 30 different fragrances in February and, in terms of category, they were all over the map: amber orientals, spice orientals, woods, chypres, green florals, white florals, purple florals (iris, violet, and lavender), tobaccos, incenses, leathers, gourmands, and citruses. I'm not sure I've ever had a month with this range. Very interesting.

    Serge Lutens (4), ELdO (4), Perfume d'Empire (2), and Rogue Perfumery (2) were the most represented houses, but I wore only 3 fragrances more than once:

    3x - Bogue Profumo MEM

    2x - Olympic Orchids Woodcut and ELdO Nombril Immense

    1x - SL Un Bois Vanille, SL Fumerie Turque, TFPB Vert des Bois, CdG Incense: Zagorsk, Rogue Perfumery Derviche, ELdO Une Amourette Roland Mouret, Amouage Journey Woman, Papillon Angelique, Halston (Original), Profumum Fiore d'Ambra, Parfume d'Empire Aziyade, Nicolai Musc Monoi, SL Fils de Joie, Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt, Chanel Sycomore EDP, Diptyque Tam Dao EDP, SL Boxeuses, Rogue Perfumery Tuberose & Moss, MFK Absolue Pour Le Soir, ELdO Divin'Enfant, Parfum d'Empire Eau de Gloire, Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli, ELdO Jasmin et Cigarette, Givenchy Ysatis, Bulgari Eau Parfumee au The Bleu, Hermes Galop d'Hermes, Mauboussin EDP

    Hahahaha.
    The short answer is I went crazy during the pandemic.

    The long answer is I went crazy during the pandemic and fragrance is one of my ways to cope and to show love and self care to myself. In more normal times, I usually would wear one scent per day, maybe two if I wanted to reapply or apply a different scent after work (I usually log reapplications as additional wearings unless it's just a 1 light spritz, then I might not, I love statistics and charts and similar things and I can be a bit anal about such things). And if I would go to the store to test after work, then a couple scents more which I would also log.

    But during pandemics, with so much more home alone time and not many places to go, and with desperate need of distraction, preferably not by drugs or stupid amounts of alcohol (some alcohol is a blessing though), I went mad, and therefore concepts like "morning before shower scent", "morning after shower scent", "afternoon/evening scent" and "bedtime scent" became reality instead of a mad perfumista fantasy! (of course, it also depends on how long certain perfume lasts...things like Jungle, Opium, Coco or Avignon last well into the next day, but lots of lighter scents fade off after 5 hours or so, especially in winter when my skin dries out a bit).

    I also found LAYERING. There were evenings this winter where I would put on three different orientals on me and float around in my spicy ambery bubble like a happy perfumed cloud. Oh, and when I test things, it kind of depends - for example, I tested all my ELdOs two at the time - both to be able to compare and entertain myself more, and both to go through them quicker.

    As for showering, I generally shower once a day daily (and several times per day during summer heat, but no heat in February here, just central heating) and can step into a shower for a quick additional wash during the day if I feel it's needed. I prefer showering first time in the morning, but for example, today I started working just after I got up and brushed my teeth, so shower had to wait and that made me some space for two different morning scents, so of course I used that opportunity. Ah, and yeah, because my wardrobe kind of almost doubled during the year of pandemic, so yeah, that also helped feeding the madness - since I have more, I feel wasteful if I do not use everything I own, so I am really indulging myself because of that, too. And both the layering and the small windows for "morning before shower" or "bedtime" scents do really help to go through the less loved bottles quicker.

    Ah, and another thing - since I use BN SOTD feature to see what I wore during the last month, I should probably note that it provides data for most worn in last 30 days, and February only had 28 days, so technically 2 to possibly up to 8 or even 9 wears belong to January here, depending if I was testing or layering during those 2 additional days.

    TL;DR: I do find the time to wear and log all of that because I went crazy during the pandemic.
