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

    It's been a crazy summer for us kids, what with basenotes running aground on a deserted island. Perhaps it's time to reward ourselves and buy something new for the coming-home party. Besides, this is the month when The Perfumed Court should be coming online, and there's bound to be something there you want.

    So, whatcha buying today?
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    Today... F Millots Crepe de Chine. And just opened something of unknown age called Magie Mist by Lancome, which unfortunately I cannot smell properly because despite a good wash I still have strongly Grosellina-scented skin. I seem to be having a vintage phase.

    And Tinks has been so good 'cause she's busy being good to the rest of us!!

    On Saturday I bought Bond No9 Coney Island (my first Bond) and Creed Virgin Island Water. Apparently our summer will be very brief but I want to be well scented for what few warm days we have left! :P

    Black Aoud & Wood + Spices - Montale, Pi - Givenchy, Laila & Geir - Geir Ness (all perfumers' samples)

    !t came right quick (although the Company is located in Bermuda, the pkge. was shipped from New York) and is a gorgeous Bay Rum. My GrandDaddy used to wear St. John's and I adored it (I adored HIM!!) This one is brisk and lively - lots of bay and a bit of rhum and a hint of menthol. Has pretty good longevity (for me, that's three hours) and is very refreshing.

    And I also ADORE Leila - was saving up clams and then Vijay closed up shop. All in good time.

    Can't really recall when I ordered it,but since the last time we were online I've invested a large bottle of L'heure Bleue edp.I love it!!! If presents count I got Gaultier2 as a holiday present from the boyfriend. That guy seems to know my taste

    My three month hiatus from buying didn't last (but I was good for two!)-- I purchased and received my bell bottle - Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque. I absolutely love it and been wearing it all last week.

    Lucky you! I really do need to get my hands on a bottle or decant of this. It has quickly become one of my favourites... Enjoy!

    Took me two days to re-locate this thread! So, a couple of days ago....

    I actually got to meet with perfumer Neil Morris, sniffed a bunch, and (heaven help me) bought [[[gulp]]] THREE of his "vault" fragrances (not among the newly released line, but from the perfumes he has made over many years). [[[sounds of my fainting because I don't believe I just dropped that much money, but WOW, do I smell good...]]]

    The three are:

    Skinscense -- Just like it sounds, nearly all the varieties of incense I can think of rolled into one; Asian/Indian incense, though, NOT churchy, I find. Fun!

    Le Parfum C'est Ma Vie -- Delicious, classic French style perfume. Definitely skews feminine, but I think a man could wear it, in the right mood.

    Top Notes: Aldehydes, Raspberry, Plum Blossom
    Heart Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Freesia, Narcissus, Peony and Lotus
    Base Notes: Dark Amber, Sheer Musk

    Gandhara : Sharp, jasmine/incense/spices/woods scent from a series of East Indian-themed scents he's done. It's sexy as anything, and the dry-down is GORGEOUS!

    So, broke but very pleased with myself.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...

    Welcome, Pamplelune!

    Pamplelune is one of my top three scents. I also consider Flower my general "signature." Good choices, IMO. What else do you wear?
    --------------------------------------
    BTW, I have bought NOTHING for about two months! I've been so good! But I've had to be. With a baby coming, and three grad classes this past summer, I've been broke!

    More confessions...

    - traded decants for Lanvin My Sin
    - bought decant of Coromondel and traded for decant of Angelique Encens
    - bought Farnesiana from a fellow perfumista
    - bought Messe de Miniut from a fellow BN'er
    - bought Guerlain Bois D'Armenie (ouch! but ooohhh this one is so very nice!)
    - awaiting bottle of Derby, ordered from France and due here in September (fingers are crossed)

    and I bought decant bottles and atomizers from lotioncrafters, so that I can spread the joy!

    OK, no more posting on this thread (for August)!!!

    Thanks for the welcome! Flower gets tons of mileage from me too!

    I will post my (relatively small) fragrance collection on my signature, while Wardrobe is down for now.

    Just bought Nuit Noire to replace MKK in my wardrobe (it may be even raunchier, if that's possible,) and Tubereuse Criminelle to continue my twisted male journey into tuberose. I'm contemplating Vierges & Toreros on my itinerary, too, but I can't decide whether the tuberose is pronounced enough for me...

    I just ordered Comme des Garçons - Series 2: Red Rose this morning. I had a sample I ordered with my At the Beach 1966 I received last week... wore it yesterday and got absolutely rave reviews from the lady. (like the 'face to neck and won't let go' type)

    So, yup, ordered it
    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    What did you think of Les Perles? I saw that at Harrods the other day, and was intrigued by the bottle.

    Today I am wearing an old friend, Narciso Rodriguez for her EDT.
