Your Perfume Rotations in 2021

I prefer quarterly/seasonal rotations to monthly. It is less focused but it also means I don’t have to change everything once a month. I know this is long, but it encompasses everything I like to wear in we. I will probably change some the more delicate, for more robust, and I have a wishlist item or two on their way. Mostly this is greens, florals, violets, soft fruits, and a few gourmands that don’t feel too heavy. Nighttimes, I still reach for powders and gourmands, but those don’t change much seasonally. So, apologies in advance for this long list :D

I already have a backup bottle :) Too bad it's discontinued, I really like it.... Like a less dirty Musc Ravageur with orange and cinnamon added :) My old bottle has started to evaporate, so I wanna try to finish it because of that.

I feel the same way, and I do like to use them up when they start evaporating because it can get too syrupy with the immortelle and vanilla. I’m on my 5th bottle and have two backups.

Spring is in the air, my friends! I’m really excited about this rotation. It’s got a little bit of everything: something oriental, something green, a couple of floraly florals (Silk Blossom, With Love), a couple of sneaky florals (Eau de Neroli Dore and Infusion d’Iris), a modern Chypre, a more standard Chypre, something bold, and something soft. It’s going to be a good month.

April

Finish Focus: Infusion d’Iris

1. 31 Rue Cambon
2. Beige
3. Diorella
4. Eau de Neroli Dore
5. Hanae Mori
6. Infusion d’Iris
7. Mito
8. Rush
9. Shalimar Cologne
10. Silk Blossom
11. Tabacco Toscano
12. The Pour Une Ete
13. With Love

Note that although Infusion d’Iris is listed as being on a finish focus, it won’t be finished this month. There isn’t much left, but it’s strong, so I don’t wear much at once. One or two sprays, usually.

Also, I plan to wear some samples/minis, such as perhaps:

1. Parfum d’Ete by Kenzo
2. Y by YSL Femme
3. L’Heure Promise by Cartier

Daily workhorses:
La Fumee Arabie
Lampblack
Equipage & Equipage Geranium
Jubilation XXV
Eau de Gloire
Timbuktu

Daily treats:
Musk Lave

Night-time workhorses:
Korrigan
LADDM
ACDD
Psychedelique
Cuir Ottoman
Broken Theories
Incendo

Night-time treats:
Casablanca
Mem
Maai
Hyde
Santal Galore
Agar de Noir
Tyrannosaurus Rex

* There are a bunch of other things I'd wear more of if my partner didn't react poorly to them.

LinePlaneVolume - really appreciate the inspiration. Just wow. Half of your rotations are my current favorites -- your other half are now ordered to sample. Thank you.

March Rotation:

1. Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune
2. Guerlain Shalimar EDP
3. Guerlain Shalimar Souffle Intense
4. Guerlain Samsara EDT
5. Givenchy Organza
6. Guerlain Insolence EDT
7. Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta (new!)
8. Le Couvent des Minimes Aqua Solis (new!)
9. D&G Pour femme (new!)
10. Molinard Habanita
11. Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudree
12. Gres Cabochard EDP
13. Comme des Garcons Incense: Avignon
14. Azzedine Alaia Alaia
15. Azzedine Alaia Alaia Nude
16. Lolita Lempicka Oh Ma Biche
17. Avon Today
18. Lush I'm Home
19, 20, 21. L'Artisan Parfumeur minis: Timbuktu, Al Oudh, L'eau d'Ambre Extreme
And some new samples, of course: Amouage Lyric Woman, Guerlain Apres L'Ondee and Eau du Coq, Vivienne Westwood Boudoir, Lancome La vie est belle, BDK Rouge Smoking, House of Oud Keep Glazed, M. Micallef Mon Parfum Pearl.
And any of the one-offs that I'll want to wear, of course, I'm finally okay with this and won't eat myself for wanting to stray a bit.


Also, of course, I was careful to have something citrusy, something light/uncomplicated/easy to wear, something oriental, something vanillic, something musky, something leathery, something sweet, something peculiar, something classic, something modern, something tried and true, a Shalimar, a Narciso Rodriguez, an Aqua Allegoria and something new to keep me content.


My rotation is still probably way too big though, but it's sooo hard to just pick a few for me.

I think this rotation was successful, and I learned to not stress too much about it if I want to wear something off-rotation some days. Although I did stay in rotation most of the time. I wasn't in a mood for wearing samples after my February's ELdO sampling spree, so I got to wear most fragrances several times, and even finished a bottle of Lolita Lempicka Oh Ma Biche (and almost finished Rose Magnetic by Essential Parfums, but decided to give the remains of it to someone else as in the end I felt this scent is not me). The three new additions got worn at least four times each, and I also added another new perfume during the month - Bois d'Iris by VC & Arpels - which also got 4 wears. I enjoyed Bois d'Iris and Bottega Veneta immensely, and Aqua Solis also grew on me. D&G pour femme not so much, but since it's a rollerball I'll be able to use it up anyway. I also didn't feel like wearing/didn't find the time to wear Insolence, Shalimar, Samsara and Organza as much as I intended to, and didn't want to wear Lush I'm Home, Molinard Habanita and Gres Cabochard at all (but worn all three once - not at once, though!). Overall, it seems like I was in the mood for lighter, more spring-like scents most of the time.

My April rotation will be even more spring-focused. I'm not sure yet if I want to put my favourites back into rotation or not yet though. I have a vague idea what I want to see in it, but I'll work on it during the first days of April.

Oh hello, and here it is, my belated and quite bloated

April Rotation
that I put up over the long weekend.

April is not the cruelest month where I live, it's probably the month of true spring - sun is shining, tree leaves are starting to grow, you can find hepaticas and snowdrops all over the forest, nights are still freezing and you can still get snow, but days are becoming warmer and brighter and it's not the end of the world if you go out without gloves. And we are all expecting warm weather by the end of April, as always. It's a month of hope. Lilacs are breeding (they will bloom in May), and memory and desire are mixing, and even I, self-proclaimed non-floral girl, start craving florals and soft, nostalgic scents.

Okay, enough with my T.S. Eliot foolery, here's my April Rotation:

1. Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d'Iris - a new scent that I got last month and I want to have more fun with it, a beautiful calm(ing) woody incensy iris
2. Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta - a new scent that I got from a trade last month and want to wear it more while it's still chilly, suede, plum and class
3. Guerlain Shalimar EDT - a more spring-like, sweeter, more floral Shalimar
4. Guerlain Shalimar Souffle d'Oranger - a very springlike, orange blossom focused Shalimar flanker
5. Guerlain Terracotta - this smells like spring to me, a very elegant one, green leaves, white flowers, coconut and smooth & soft Guerlinade
6. Cartier Le Baiser Du Dragon - for cooler days when I want something cozier, warmer, spicier, boozier. Almond, booze, cinnamon, resins, gardenia and some greenish leaves on top
7. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Black Perfecto - a very versatile scent that I wanted to put into the rotation, almond, cherry, dusty rose and the tiniest hint of leather
8. Guerlain Mon Guerlain EDT - another spring-like scent that's also very cozy, great for sunny, yet chilly and sometimes even snowy days of April, and some lavender to calm me
9. Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune - my favourite grapefruit, and probably also my favourite citrus
10. Guelain Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante - a sparkly, gingery rosy beauty, it's best in spring
11. Narciso Rodriguez Narciso EDT - I always want to have a NR in rotation, and this one is more springlike than others I own, and it didn't get enough love this year
12. Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Rouge - a mini that pretty much never gets my love, it's a bit too heavy and dirty for me, but I want to give it some attention
13. Salvador Dali Le Roy Soleil - a mini; it's both fruity-juicy sweet and ambery-cinnamony-resinous, it smells like the sun. I like it in August and September the most, but spring is just reversed autumn, isn't it?
14. Azzedine Alaia Alaia - a mini and a body cream; these will be in rotation until I finish them, and it will take a while (leathery, ozonic, cool, corporate bitch scent that I find both amusing and too intrusive all at once)
15. Azzedine Alaia Alaia Nude - a 10 ml bottle (so pretty), also will be in rotation until I finish it, and not much is left - only a few ml - but too much to finish it this month (cozy, nutty, cashmeran based scent that makes me very happy but doesn't want to stay on me)
16. Avon Today - a travel spray, VERY springlike soft floral, I'm planning to finish it this month
17. Dolce & Gabbana Pour femme - a rollerball that was given to me as an additional gift in a swap that's also in rotation until it's finished. Sweet, cozy, powdery, quiet, shy and very understated.
18. L'Artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu - a mini that was in last month's rotation, too, I suspect this will be amazing in April - spicy woody smoky vetiver
19. L'Erbolario Assenzio - a last minute green & herbal addition. I thought about swapping it away as I find it amusing but rarely want to wear it, but retried it and changed my mind
20. Vivienne Westwood Boudoir - a new decant that I suspect might be evaporating and I'd rather use it than lose this powdery-quirky-girly-dirty-bubblegummy-oldschool scent
21. Dior Hypnotic Poison - I do NOT have it yet, but I'm anticipating it in a swap package sometime this month. This almondy vanilla will be in May's rotation, too, if it arrives safely.
I also have some unworn samples that I may or may not be wearing, we shall see. If I end up with new acquisitions, they will also end up here.

I always want to have a good citrus, a Shalimar, a Narciso Rodriguez, something cozy, something spicy, something woody, something leathery, something easy to wear, something very versatile, something "to get to know better" and some finish-focus in my rotation, and I think I did well this month. Maybe not enough woody scents, but I believe my wardrobe itself is is lacking in this compartment despite my love for woody, incensy, tobacco scents. I blame lack of them in mainstream perfumery and my reluctance to spend too much on niche. :D I'm sure my wardrobe will evolve according to my needs, loves and cravings with time, I'm not in a hurry.

My biggest wardrobe staples - Guilty Absolute, Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT, Les Amoureux de Peynet, Bvlgari Black are left out of rotation again (I guess I'll return Black only in autumn as it's a cool weather scent to me). I will wear them if I crave them (I already wore Guilty Absolute during Easter), but I want to leave them for more normal times. I might return some of them in May, we will see.

I only got to 10 of the 11 I brought out for April (no wearings for Polo, although Polo Crest did ok).

Here are nine that I've pulled out for May:

IMG_3720.jpg

I was bonding with Patou Pour Homme, so I'm hoping to keep some of that momentum going with the Prive flanker, although it is quite different. And it didn't do great the last time it featured. But I'm feeling optimistic.

Dior Homme - It also had a shaky month last time out. It had been a fan favorite in the past, but after a hiatus, it came back out of style. Not for me, though. I still like it.

Gucci Pour Homme - This has a little extra kick that makes it memorable. It's 90% light and polite verging on forgettable, but then something hangs on. An herbal-type note that gives it subtle character.

Ho Hang Club - Back by popular demand.

Bijan for Men - For "me" time.

Havana - I'm leading with this vintage bottle, but also have some current to compare. Fans speak highly of the current version. As a neutral observer, I've felt like the vintage was the way to go, but this situation could be fluid.

Hugo - This was a recent gift that hit the spot in its first couple wearings. I'm curious to see if that holds up. It has been a surprise.

31 Rue Cambon edp - I want to bond with the edp versions if I can. I have some edt, but I'm pulling for the edp to step up to the plate. It has done well for me in the past. This was a Julie Bear pick. She has a lot to say about which fragrances marketed to women I wear.

Oud Ispahan is her other pick from what she considers fragrances marketed to women. She got four picks this month with those two, Ho Hang Club, and Havana (and she bought Hugo).

Polo is in the running for the 10th spot - possibly getting a do-over after putting up a blank for April. Update: It's in. And Mouchoir de Monsieur stayed on, too, to take it to 11.

I've put the ones in bold that I've worn so far.

Bavard, these tiny Chanel and Dior bottles look so cute among their big brothers!
And I see Bijan is the one that comes up often in your rotations. That bottle is memorable! :)



My bloated April's rotation was kind of successful, although I swapped out two scents out of it and my wardrobe during the course of the month (Assenzio and Narciso Rouge). They're great scents, but not the ones I find myself wanting to reach for, so why not give them a better home.
I also purchased Orchid Soleil that got at least 4 wears and got some unexpected gifts - John Galliano and minis of LouLou and Diorissimo that ended up in my wardrobe and also got a few wears each.
I also finished Avon Today, and it was among the most worn together with both Alaias, Mon Guerlain and D&G pour femme, and others got some wears, too. Sadly I didn't wear Bottega Veneta as much as I wanted. I love it, but I kind of feel it's wasteful to wear it around home in leggings and old t-shirt. I think it shapes up to be one of my "going out" scents, and all these are not getting their wears during the pandemic. Well, it's time to shine for my feel-goods, introverted ones and finish focuses, and that's also good!

I'll do my May list before Monday.

Um, I do feel like going to many directions at once. I want to focus on just a few scents that I want to either finish, make a bigger dent or get to know better. I also want to wear many beautiful scents that are fitting to the wonderful month of May, the truest, most beautiful spring month here. The lilac, apple, pear, cherry and plum trees are all blooming in May here and I want to bloom with them, too. It's warm enough to fully enjoy my beloved citruses. It's cool enough for some amber or woods or leather or occasional iris. And those beachy florals and light almondy gourmands are calling me, too. What's a girl to do? A girl makes two rotations in one big display on her counter.

First rotation - scents that I'm planning to wear at least once, probably twice each:
Cheap and Chic I Love Love by Moschino - a soft woody-creamy citrus
Shalimar EDT by Guerlain - a floral, springlike Shalimar
Shalimar Souffle d'Oranger by Guerlain - the most springlike Shalimar flanker
Shalimar Cologne by Guerlain - a summery Shalimar flanker that's both juicy and ambery
Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune by Guerlain - a dark citrus, my favourite grapefruit
La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche by Guerlain - a light summery gourmand, a bit green, a bit almondy
Escape by Calvin Klein - a fruity floral amber aquatic??? I can't wrap my head around yet; a decant
Diorissimo by Dior - lily of the valley, a mini
LouLou by Cacharel - a woody amber I want to understand better, a mini
Orchid Soleil by Tom Ford - a solar floral
Terracotta by Guerlain - a solar floral
John Galliano - a powdery incense
Hypnotic Poison by Dior - a caraway vanilla/almond
Les Amoureux de Peynet by Molinard - a citrus-ginger cologne to cut through anything
Alaia Nude - my cozy cashmeran catnip I wanted to finish off but started saving the remains
Bois Dore by Van Cleef & Arpels - sweetened woods
Bois d'Iris by Van Cleef & Arpels - incensy iris
Samsara EDT by Guerlain - a woody floriental for the colder days if there will be any
Citrus Noir by Molinard - a woody citrus
Pour femme by Dolce & Gabbana - a light powdery gourmand

Second rotation - scents I'm planning to wear a lot:
Mon Guerlain EDT by Guerlain - a lavender vanilla
Lolita Lempicka Mon Premier - an aromatic-sweet summery gourmand
Alaia by Azzedine Alaia - an ozonic leather, a finish focus
Aqua Solis by Le Couvent des Minimes - a gingery-spicy citrus cologne
L'Instant EDT by Guerlain - a springlike floral amber - new
L'Ange Noir by Givenchy - ambery/almondy/irisy - new
Ange ou Demon Le Parfum & Accord Illicite by Givenchy - a floriental - new


How am I going to do this? I will wear three scents per day. I will layer. I will celebrate May.

April turned out to be a cold and frosty month, and the first half of May (apart from today's deluge) is shaping up the same.
This next rotation attempts to be optimistic weatherwise.

Trying to limit it to FBs rather than samples :

Hermes Equipage
Hermes Bel Ami
Etro Gomma
Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta pour Homme EdT
Aramis Tuscany
Caron Yatagan
Guerlain Vetiver (back in rotation for warmer weather)
Etro Palais Jamais

I managed to get my Le parfum de Therese smashed by dropping it on the bathroomfloor. So it's out of this month rotation. I will add OJ Champaca instead when I get it in the mail.

Oh no! :( Hugs.
I dropped my LouLou mini on the bathroom floor two days ago, gladly it didn't smash, just spilled a bit. My bathroom smelled good for two days.
Maybe it's the weather.

Diorella, even vintage, could be less than a replacement Parfum de Therese. (I didn’t see Diorella in your wardrobe, and from my sampling, it would be good consolation).

I've never tried it because it's hard to come by here, but I'll try to search for it :)

You can get vintage Diorella on eBay and Etsy for considerably less cost than Malle is charging for their scents.

But even the modern Diorella is just as good as Parfum de Therese, in my book.

I found a modern Diorella edt online. I also found some vintage on ebay. But I'm not familiar with the scent at all and I don't know how to check if it's legit.... Both would cost me about the same, but vibtage only about 50mls and the modern is 100....This would also be a blindbuy. But from the notes it sounds good.... What to do? :)

Jules wanted to pull out the Diors. Coromandel gets to carry over because it’s new. She only rotates every two or three months (and cheats a tiny bit).

Dioressence, Diorissimo, Miss Dior, Diorella, Dior Dior, Coromandel, Miss Dior edt, Dior Dior edt, Diorama edt

The splashes stay in their boxes, apparently. I'm hoping for lots of Miss Dior edt and Dior Dior, either version. And some Diorella. The only one I'm slightly wary of is Dioressence. It can border on being too much. She doesn't get into Diorling, strangely, because I find it as good as any of them. The only modern one is the current Diorama. We have a bunch of modern, feminine Diors, but I cherry picked the older stuff when she mentioned it was Dior time.

What a gorgeous Dior lineup! Look at all those parfums -- your house is going to contain the best-smelling woman in Vermont.

I don't see the famous Farting Diorama atomiseur. Did you finally consign it to the bin?

Gorgeous! What an enviable collection!
