Rebecca over at Hello Pretty Bird (do yourself a favor and go read her blog -- some of the best writing on the interwebz) is doing a "Scent of the Day Challenge" in which one wears a different perfume sample everyday for a month, and I thought I would participate. Her choices are lots of indie fragrances, which are far more interesting than the standard perfume samples I have. I'm also horrible at describing fragrances, so I'm only going to say if I liked the scent or a quick something about it because I thought that would be terribly helpful if you are looking into one of the perfumes I wore one day.
Day 1: Burberry Body Tender -- I'm kind of meh one this one. I don't think it's for me.
Day 2: Killer Queen by Katy Perry -- I like this one, both on first spray and the dry down.
It's kind of warm and spicy. The packaging looks like a huge jewel.
Day 3: Dolce by Dolce and Gabbana -- I like it. It's a pretty floral.
Day 4: Marc Jacobs Honey -- I only kind of like this one. It's a fresh floral, to my nose.
Day 5: I ❤ NY by Bond No. 9 -- This is a light floral that I quite like.
Day 6: Ralph Lauren Romance -- This one faded really fast on me. I wasn't particularly
fond of it anyway.
Day 7: Versace Bright Crystal -- I liked this, but it was gone by the end of the day.
Day 8: I forgot to wear anything.
Day 9: Elizabeth Arden Untold -- A light floral that I like. The bottle is really elegant.
Day 10: Gucci Flora Gardenia -- I definitely like this one. It's described by Gucci as a fruity floral.
So there are the fragrances I tried out the past 10 days. I am going out of town next week (on Thursday), and will be gone for several days, but I'm going to try to take samples with me to keep up with the challenge.
More fragrance samples to come in the future!
