I know... I know. It's well documented that it's well-hated here. But on my skin, it does well. Out of the bottle, I've hated this too.
3 samples from Frederic Malle:
I absolutely can't wait to try MR!!!
DKNY Men. Nice little modern scent. Little bit of incense, little bit of freshness.

Acqua Di Parma Essenza ....... am loving this :)
Soooo happy with yesterday's purchases! I hit Saks, Nieman Marcus and Bloomingdales with nothing in mind. Ended up with recommendations from the SAs! I never do that!
Van Cleef and Arpels "Midnight in Paris" - just beautiful. A softer, classier Bulgari Black. Gorgeous bottle, too.
Victorinox Swiss Unlimited - I never would have thought I'd flip over this. It's like an outdoorsman's Lolita Lempicka.
Andy Warhol Silver Factory - picked up the bonbon for this awesome juice. Was waiting for cooler weather. Lovin it.
M7 50ml Vintage Formula, finally arrived today!
Millesime Imperial 17 oz flacon
Etra 100 ml
Gomma 100 ml
Palais Jamais 8.25 oz engraved bottle
Etra and Gomma are blind buys, Palais Jamais is a backup bottle after being very impressed by my earlier 100 ml. blind buy of it, and the Millesime Imperial is my finally breaking down and buying it from an authorized Creed dealer after having twice been disappointed buying it at online discounters. The difference in quality is like night and day.
At yesterday's BN meet-up in San Francisco:
Serge Lutens - Gris Clair
Annick Goutal - Ninfeo Mio
And for my partner, Costume National Homme
My friend is in Paris right now. And I have asked her to get me a bottle of Montale. I posted in another thread to help me decide which one to get and I chose..........................and she just purchased it right now.......
Aoud Damscus 100ml
Now I can't wait for her to get back here to Shanghai! hahahahaha
Thank you for all the help guys!

Today a kind BN'ers gift to me arrived: a rare 15ml Guerlain "Vetiver Seduction Spray" atomiser to match my Habit Rouge one!
Dimitri those are just **adorable**. They sort of remind me of pencil erasers. Filled with cologne. LOL
Friday I got my bottle of TM Pure Malt and today had to pick up a bottle of original A*Men.
Azzaro Pour Homme "Lounge Edition" (Frag, Aftershave Balm, Deodorant,Shampoo) :cool: & John Varvatos Vintage :thumbsup:
Terre 100ml Gift Set at an incredible price tag!!
My tastes are becoming more mature and demanding, i need more quality and more mature scents to feel good, and that's why is bought Habit Rouge.
Chanel Cuir de Russie, vintage parfum from the period 1970-1985 (if I understand my Chanel bottles correctly)
The nice SA loaded me up with half a dozen Malle samples too.
Plus, there was a special offer on, so I got 100 pounds worth of other goodies (soaps, soaks, moisturisers, and, um, lipstick and nail varnish) for free.
My wallet may be lighter, but at least I smell good :)
This month has been a heavy one on my wallet since I am ramping up for a nice fall/winter line up. Hopefully this will tide me over so I will not have to make anymore purchases until summer comes around. So far this month I've got.
A*men Pure Malt x2
D&G The One Gentleman
Lutens' Vetiver Oriental, Rabanne's Eau and Dyptique's Phylosikos (refill). Also, backups of BBW's Indian Vetiver and a vintage bottle of Mariela Burani's discontinued Bouquet de Roses Eau Rafraichissante for a friend.
Oscar De La Renta-Pour Lui
Bought this blind buy and I'm not disappointed.
Today turned out to be an iris day: a bottle of Infusion d'Iris body lotion, Prada No 1 Iris parfum and a Chanel No 19 soap.
YSL - Opium Eau de Parfum (Ladies) - vintage - after reading the thread on the reformulation last night. Strong!!! but good :)
I read the dislikes... I lowered my expectations... but once I sprayed it on my skin, I bought Bulgari Man.
Chanel no. 19 EDT 50 ml
Chanel no. 5 EDP 50 ml
Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree 75 ml
My wallet's getting thin.
I'm fired up...just ordered Guerlain Heritage EDT (3.4 OZ) and Parfums de Nicolai New York (1.0 OZ). Bring on the colder temps!
vetiver 1948 by creed, l'occitane vetiver and a special cologne that i will reveal later.
Costume National 21
Bond no. 9's Brooklyn
3 samples of Tom Ford's Noir de Noir
10ml decant of Guerlain's Spiriteuse Double Vanille
100ml bottle of By Man (x2)
Just bought Prada Infusion d'Homme. http://images.bizrate.com/resize?sq=500&uid=899747601
Normally the 200ml bottle cost €98, but only today it's sold for €40 at a big department store, almost a 60% discount.
I have a dilemma. I want to buy either Chanel no. 5 Eau Premiere, Cristalle Eau Verte or Cristalle Edt. My mind and wallet says "No" but my heart says "Yes". Is anyone of you familiarized with this sort of craving for more when it comes to perfumes? lol.
Divine L`homme Sage.
Those Gurlain and Le Ete bottles have me drooling!
I am SO excited. Body Kouros is 99% sure to be the new signature, loved it when I sprayed it on a nice progression from Le Male.
Rochas I liked as well, but will be more of a trial wear for now for #3 contender.
These two will be centered by GIT, to be replaced by Aventus mostlikely in a year or so.
