"That would never happen in Brisbane! "
Just what are you trying to say here about Brisvegas, Doc ? hehehe.
Thanks for your comment - a good time was had.
Post of the week- "Because males don't know how to use the search function?" LMAO
You're right, but at least Life Support got to 3 seasons unlike so many other great shows that were killed off before their time. Sit Down, Shut Up with Stephen Curry is a great example. Anyway, thanks for the kind welcome to basenotes!
Howzit! Life Support is awesome! Nice choice in comedy lol.
Yeah I dunno where to test that here tho ... Adelaide is just too crap for niche/boutique exclusives/etc. ,
I bought it privately blind, but you can get it on Strawberrynet for quite a decent price.
I will never buy any perfume in OZ its too expensive lol.
Recent FB purchase was a 'vintage' Dior Dolce Vita and decants have included L'Instant PH and Feminite du Bois (original) among quite a few others ... I think I'm going to be holed up with these for a while. Some real beauties in the stash!
Easter was all about the kids eating chocolate and hot cross buns but we did get a chance to share some with them! I wish I could have eaten more! *scoffs childs chocolate in secret*
I'm too tired to watch a Royal Wedding and will probably just go to bed when the kids do! I just got a new Kindle so I'm going to have a play around with that. Maybe I'll put the wedding on in the background ... with the sound off so I don't have to listen to the commercials!
I hope you have a great weekend!
Thanks for the friendship!
Both Noralunga and Marion have gone - the latter I just couldn't find because it was hidden with a giant Westfield ad. Took me ages to work it out! Lol I suppose it looks bad to have a closed shop?
I've given up looking in brick and mortar shops for the time being. I'm just procuring samples and decants from people who have access to a lot more interesting stuff than we do here. D:
Mecca at Burnside was nice and friendly but as you said about the city outlet, rather limited. They had about 6(?) Serge Lutens, some Dyptique and some Frederic Malle in sample form - which was a little bit annoying - I wanted full squirts! xD Thanks for letting me know - I'll be sure to check the city's shop sooner or later. They must be doing alright to have opened another shop here!
I was talking to a new member who is also in Adelaide and mentioned you to him. It took me AGES to find your profile page so thought Id better 'friend' you ... I don't know why I haven't friend requested before ... O_o
Feel free to turn me down of course ...
Oh and have you noticed Perfume Emporium have closed down here? Is it just Adelaide or AU-Wide?
That place went downhill pretty bad in the last year though - kinda saw it coming.
Hope you had a happy Easter!
To update the story ...
I wrote to Jo Malone in Toorak asking if they could please send me a sample or two and they sent me TWELVE!! MY GOD I'm happy!
I've only tried Dark Amber and Ginger Lily on my skin so far and I can still smell it on my wrists from last night (Midday now)! It had relatively low sillage but I could smell it on myself for the few hours before bed. I can't smell it now unless I press my nose to my wrist but it's still there. From start to finish quite unisex imo. Not that that would be an issue for you of course! OOoo Hows the Y going btw?
They didnt have any samples of Vintage Gardenia but they sprayed a card and I think I'm halfway in love already - it's a little like EL's Tuberose Gardenia but with a healthy dose of incense. I <3 incense!
ANYWAY - perhaps you can write too! I got the email address from their website.
Good Luck if ya do!
