New Year Resolutions: March

March was much more intense in terms of both perfumes testing and wearing. I was good towards my favorites though I didn’t always spend quality time with them; sometimes I wore them as a part of a comparison test or only for a couple of hours (or as long as they lasted without re-applying). But still I hope they wouldn’t complain if anybody would ask (but, just in case, please don’t).

Quick March stats:

March stats* Different perfumes worn: 61 (11 more than in the previous month)
* Favorite perfumes worn/tested: 21 (+8)
* Perfumes I tried for the first time: 27 (+13)
* Perfume houses I wore most often: Ormonde Jayne and Amouage (I wore/tested them on 12 and 10 occasions correspondingly)
* Most popular notes: top – (not counting bergamot) still cardamom but popular last month lemon shared popularity with mandarin, pink pepper and rose; middle – jasmine and rose (I’m curious if this ever going to change or should I stop counting them in the heart position the same way I stopped counting bergamot among the head notes?); base – sandalwood (as it was in February)but patchouli note was moved into the fifth place and replaced by musk.

Now I’m curious how other people do that. Are two perfumes per day (on average) two much?

  1. I don’t keep stats but maybe I should…this is an interesting exercise. I try to wear one perfume per day to see how it is at different times of day, but then I often end up trying it as a layer. I think it is natural to move away from strong patchouli and incense, heavy spices, and colder irises when the weather warms up and the days lengthen. Right now, I am drawn to bright florals and creamy bases.


    • Once I started tracking my perfume usage/testing I discovered many interesting facts about my perfume habits so I intend to continue doing that for a while.

      In the recent week I can’t figure out what I want to wear. The weather definitely dictates the shift but I have hard time hearing it. It’ll take probably couple of weeks to figure out my spring/summer perfume wardrobe.
