    Re: Today I bought February 2020

    Just did blind buys of Bee’s Bliss and Winter Woods by Sonoma Scent Studios. I never blind buy and hate shopping online but I had a great discount code I couldn’t help it.

    Sticky: Re: Synchronized Fridays 2020

    You've inspired me! Joining you with vintage LHB. I am very picky about when I wear Mitsouko and LHB so I always seem to forget just how much I love these scents.

    In sync today with my vintage L'Heure Bleue.

    My bottles of Mitsouko and LHB are vintage so I am kind of picky about when I wear them, but every single time I do, I forget just how special they are...

    Side Effect! Really wanted to check it out for a full day of test and see if I want to buy a full bottle.

    Spoiler alert: I do.
