One of my perfume-related New Year Resolutions this year was to slow down the testing gallop and start wearing more often those perfumes that I like already. The goal was to spend at least two days a week with my favorites – perfumes from my collection, not test vials and sample sprays. After all, why to look for a perfect scent if I will not give it enough face body time once the courting is over?
The first month of the year went by almost unnoticed. Looking in the perfume diary for January I see that somehow I managed not to get too far from the goal: I wore one of my favorite perfumes on nine different occasions. Of course, nine times does translate to “twice a week”, but I cheated a little by sometimes putting on something new in the morning – “just to see how it feels”, – and later the same day or in the evening I would wear a perfume I own and love.
Quick January statistics:
* Different perfumes worn: 46
* Favorite perfumes worn: 9
* Perfumes tried for the first time: 25
* Perfume house I wore most often:
Chanel (Coco and Beige, two times each)
Ormonde Jayne (Orris Noir and Tiare, two times each).
* Most popular notes: top – bergamot and mandarin; middle – jasmine and rose; base – musk and sandalwood.
