Hello, fellow nerdettes and nerds!

I got stuck with Hermès Eau des Merveilles, so my stats for the last summer month are ready to roll, and they look like this:

7 Eau des Merveilles
4 Geranium Bourbon, Kyoto, La Myrrhe, Le Parfum de Thérèse
3 Bana Banana, (untitled) l'eau
2 Le Petit Grain, Narcisse Noir, Paloma y Raíces

With the exception of Kyoto and (untitled) plenty of yellow/orange/red sunny stuff here.

What did you wear in August?

Only the first week of August was still somewhat warm, and the rest was cloudy, rainy and quite autumnal, so my wears reflect that, too.

I was away from home for almost all weekends so some of my most worn bottles were the travel sprays and rollerballs: D&G pour femme, Mandarine Basilic, Libre Intense.
I still wore some citruses, but I felt like mostly craving for something cozy, yet easy to wear, more skin-like, quieter scents - light, subdued resins, some light leather, slightly powdery purple florals, very light spices, "nude" scents, some light woods, a little bit of amber or vanilla peaking through, too. I had a brief moment where I was craving for something pink and sweet, but mostly relied on samples to quench the thirst for that.

I think I could sum up this August as "Safe for Work", and I really spent a lot of time either there or around other people in general, so it was just right.

I'm surprised to see Jules clear out in front. I don't remember wearing it a lot. From memory, it would be Ho Hang Club, Polo Crest, and Givenchy Gentleman without the other three.
