May was pleasant when it came to the weather: there were just several very hot days and we even got a couple of showers. For me it was hectic and extremely busy. As a result my testing went down significantly.
Half a year ago I based my statistics post on the language of the perfumes names. This month I decided to look into brands themselves. I’ve discovered that more than half (66%) of the brands I wore1 or tested2 in May were from France. Neither of the other seven countries in calculation were even close to that number (see the chart).
From what country comes the perfume you’re wearing today?
Quick May stats:
Numbers in parenthesis are comparison to the previous month’s numbers.
* Different perfumes worn: 26 (+2) from 20 (+4) brands on 29 (+3) occasions;
* Different perfumes tested: 28 (-12) from 18 (-3) brands on 30 (-14) occasions;
* Perfumes I tried for the first time: 9 (-9);
* Perfume house I wore most often: Chanel;
* Perfume house I tested the most: Serge Lutens;
1 When I wear a perfume I apply it to at least three-four points and usually I plan to spend at least 4-8 hours with the same scent so I’m prepared to re-apply if the original application wears off.
2 For the testing I apply a perfume to one area on my arms easily available for the repetitive sniffing. But, most likely, I’m the only one who can smell it. I can test two, sometimes even more perfumes at the same time.
