    Default Today I bought ... (for January 2007)

    Figured we may as well break the "today I bought" thread into monthly installments for convenience sake.

    So, who will be the first to register their '07 purchase--hmmmmm?

    I went out today and managed to buy nothing except new tires at Sears automotive....I retried Poeme and Azuree while touring the mall, and toyed with a new bottle of Byzance, but so far I have resisted.

    Tomorrow, on the other hand, I plan to do some sample ordering for myself and my daughters so we can celebrate the new year with something new (to us) and dazzling! Hopefully we can share a bottle.

    New Tires ... is that a knock-off of Bulgari Black or Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia?

    Actually I think there might have been some combo of Gardenia and Bobo involved. The tires were an excuse to go sampling, but I liked Azuree less than I remembered and gave it a pass. I loiked the new Hanae Mori but not enough to pay retail

    The 2nd of January I bought the bodylotion of Lancôme Miracle Forever. I am hoping this one is so "moderate" it is possible to use it together with a lot of perfumes.

    Just got back from a 2 week vacation today going to 4 different countries which means PLENTY of Duty Free shopping. I bought Espoir Pour Homme, Ralph by Ralph Lauren, VI by Givenchy, and Heir by Paris Hilton.

    I really had my eye on the new Versace Man, the citrus smells soo good! Just like a mens version of D&G Light Blue. I spent to much money and I'm only 15 so I'll buy it late Spring.

    Lovely choice, Coco! I am sure you will love it

    Yesterday I bought an Xmas coffret for a song: Youth Dew Amber Nude 30 ml EdP plus shower gel and body lotion in 100 ml. I normally wouldn't have bought a full bottle of this, but at that price, I couldn't bring myself to let it go....and I like it!

    Eau de Chocolat...well, strictly speaking I bought it before Christmas, but wearing it now. I made another thread about it so you can see what I thought there.

    ...two drug store cheapies, Sunflowers Elizabeth Arden and Neiges Lise Watier. So far neither really offend, which is good since they were unsniffed. The Neiges is actually quite pleasant, it really does smell like a snowy day, which is something I've been on the hunt for. And the bottle is really very pretty. I'm not as thrilled about the Sunflowers, but as I said, it doesn't offend, so that's alright.

    Today I bought Cacharels Gloria bath and skin oil. I have not smelled it yet, but just based on what it sounds like, I do believe I'll love it and I promised myself that this year I would not purchase anything unsniffed. Well, so much for New Years resolutions.

    Love that saucy bottle...please post your experience with this fragrance, it intrigues me, almost bought it blind , heard only raw natural materials are used.
    This week purchased and received decants of the following:

    Ambre Sultan (sultry warmth)
    Montale Velvet Flowers (surprising beauty)
    Malle's Carnal Flower (astounding)
    Chanel Bois des Iles (similar to Feminite du Bois, imo , without as natural a feel)
    plus a bunch of Malle samples, as you know from other postings.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    I have had 2 samples of this and I loved it. It is soft but spicy . Having a sample is not quite the same to me as being able to give oneself a good spraying so I'll let you know how that goes!

    And I am smelling soooo good right now! Used to wear this when I was a teenager and had been feeling nostalgic for it, so broke down and bought it again!
