Perfume Project for 2013

After a year or so of mostly ignoring my perfume oils for the convenience of a quick spritz of something commercial, I'm back into them in a big way. I've spent the past couple of months buying various samples on Etsy and other indie sites, and I've discovered loads of great new fragrances. However, one thing I've found is that aside from the ubiquitous Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, it's often impossible to find reviews of indie perfumes. So after reading this blog, I have decided to shamelessly steal the idea and review a different perfume every day for a year, beginning on 1 January. It also gives me a lovely excuse to continue buying perfumes throughout the year.

I generally roll my eyes at people who have a blog for this and a blog for that (though I'm guilty of blog hopping myself so I'm really not in a position to point fingers), but I decided to create a completely separate space for this project as my blog is more general, and I don't want to clog it up too much with just perfume reviews. I'll still do my brand overview kind of posts here, though, and also reviews of commercial fragrances.

My new blog is here and starts next week, so if you have any interest in perfumes, please follow along! The perfumes I currently have are on my ScentBase, so if there's anything particular on that list you'd like to know more about, let me know. I take requests!


  1. Squeeee, so excited! Impressed by that A Scent A Day blog! Wow, that has gone on for every day of the year.

    1. It's a great blog, I spent hours reading the whole thing one afternoon.

  2. Awesome!! I´m tempted to do this myself... but I don´t have a sample stash of epic proportions yet... :( So it would be a bit too expensive for me... As for perfumes in your ScentBase stash, I have been drooplig over it before and am very interested in Murder of crows, to name one scent. I mean the name is awesome, and there is IRIS in it!

  3. I'm more of a commercial scent girl myself but I'm very excited by this. I've bought samples on Etsy a couple of times following yours and Su's recommendations so I can be convinced to turn!
