    Default Today I bought ... (for December 2006)

    No way to find out whether this idea will fly unless we try. MUA has a purchases diary that may suit some, but let's see what happens with this thread.

    What did you buy today?

    Alrighty then...I'll go first!

    Today I bought Samsara body lotion, Ysatis body lotion and L'Instant de Guerlain body lotion. (Yes, I've suddenly decided I must have the lotions that accompany all of my most favorite scents!)

    Don't really want to think about how much I spent. I'll think about that tomorrow.

    Yesterday (I'm not anticipating any purchases today!) I received my full-size tester of Habanita by Molinard, a new in box 1 oz spray of Caron Parfum Sacre, and two testers of Mugler Alien. I have a package on its way with a nearly-full size bottle of Basala by Shiseido (yes, a man's scent but uh...I guess I like those!)...and I think that it is. Although I believe there's some things that caught my eye on eBay last night!! :-o

    The excuse I say is "I'm building my collection," and well...I rarely buy full sizes unless I am sure I love it or the blind buy deal is very good (rationalizations, excuses lol)

    Nothing yet today...yesterday is another matter. I bought a small bottle of Asja,and put down the Prada. The problem is that I almost bought the bargain Prada eventhough I don't really like it because the price is right. Ultimately I decided to wait and splurge on a new bottle of Ambre Sultan at a later date.

    Congratulations to everyone on your new purchases! Yesterday I bought a new 50ml bottle of Armani Mania (black, original) for the mere 8 dollars , as my old one was almost empty and I just could not pass this bargain. Can decant it now, too!

    In the past seven days, I've bought the following:

    Prada (1oz)
    Delices de Cartier (1oz)
    and a ginormous bottle of Tabu, which came with a body lotion and a shower gel.

    I try to keep track of the reasons that I buy, too, so that I can figure out when I'm shopping compulsively.

    So:

    Prada had been tested extensively prior to buying, and I knew that I liked it. I also thought my wardrobe was lacking in warm, spicy scents.

    Delices had also been tested quite a bit, and I didn't think I liked it, but that cherry note (and the gorgeous bottle) kept me craving it for months. It was my Christmas present to myself.

    Tabu was completely unreasonable. I wanted a dark, dark, dark spicy woods scent, and I had heard that Tabu fit the bill. I also recalled a conversation on Basenotes about how underappreciated and much-maligned it was. And it was $5, and I wanted to give it a chance.

    My most recent purchase arrived last week: a bottle of Avignon.

    I also recently purchased a replacement bottle of Gendarme -- couldn't resist the great deal at Sephora: around $15.75 for a 4 oz. bottle. I see they are now out of stock again.

    My most recent purchase was from perfumebay last week
    A tester bottle of Arabie for $60 and a limited edition bottle of
    Le Baiser du Dragon in the pretty bottle with the silver design that looks like a chinese character but I suspect it is not.

    I am trying to hold out for a bottle of Ambre Sultan also. I have a friend going to Paris in January and may ask her to bring me back something.

    I may try to pick up a small bottle of Chantilly for my Mom for the holidays, though. It is the only fragrance she will wear anymore.

    I'm eating my words (posted in Tink's thread about Rochas Femme) that I didn't think I'd want more than a sample vial of Femme. I just arranged to buy a once-tested, 3.4 oz. bottle for $15.

    Those are some "killer" selections.. Basala, Passage D'enfer... MKK and Jicky in particular are fragrances with character to spare! Enjoy.

    This thread is a great idea Quarry! I think it might have "The most meaningless topic ever" potential (in popularity/number-of-posts). The guys tried a few "This month's purchases" threads but that died out. Good luck to this one I'll be back to post when I buy something.

    mochi227, I think Basala would be quite delicious on a woman. It doesn't smell especially masculine to me.
