Well, i managed to fit in a trip to an antique/thrift store today. Calling it a thrift store is somewhat of a misnomer. It's a log cabin, and like a maze inside. Jampacked with all manner of stuff, and it takes a good while to go through their cosmetics and potions. I didn't find that holy grail item, that i had visualised. I will admit to hoping for a collectible box, containing a full bottle of Joy Extrait ( a girl can dream can't she?)
But getting there, to the actual location
besides joop homme
fleur de male or male
van cleef and arpel ph
any tom ford

what i want to know and buy its unusual nuclear bomb silage monster that we don't know about it. I'm sure there are out there, maybe someone can help? pls? no matter the price!! much appreciated

i have done a fantastic job of avoiding meeting my husband's family during our 2 year courtship, ours was a long distance relationship, with me based in Ireland, and him in Alaska, so it was fairly easy to postpone meeting his mother. So it is safe to say, i don't know her well, and have
I'm relatively new to this perfume obsession, or at least I feel it because I simply haven't had the economic means to pursue my interest as much as I would like. But I try, which means regular trawling of eBay. And I have a beef.
Item: Diptyque 12ml travel sprays being flogged on UK eBay for £18.99 a piece plus £2.35 postage.
