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

    Keeping with tradition, it's my pleasure to launch another month of "I've spent my money on ..." posts. Since I'll be out of touch for most of this week, I'm kicking this off a little early. Happy shopping!

    I shall include today and the weekend! On Saturday I made a trip up to London and bought myself a bottle of Millisime Imperial, such an amazing scent.

    Today I restocked myself with a bottle of Angel, I ran out months ago and haven't felt like buying more. So glad I did, feels like I've reunited with an old friend!

    Just bought Narciso Rodgriguez' "For Her Musc Oil". Man-Oh-Man, do I love this Fruity Musc! Earthy, yet a touch of sweet fruit, honey, and musc. It just doesn't get much better for this child of the 70's. I've since ordered the large Musc sampler from ThePerfumedCourt.com. Can't wait to revisit the muscs...this time with more sophistication than in those head-shop days. "For Her" set me back $150...I think I've lost my mind...

    Notes:Honey Flower, Solar Musk, Orange Blossom, Osmanthus, Amberlyn, Vanilla, Tactile Musk, Tactile Woods, Vetiver.

    Using the 25% off any purchase code DCHABIT, I bought a 100ml Parfum d'Empire Fougere Bengale bottle from http://www.beautyhabit.com/. Free shipping and no sales tax also (sorry Californians--you pay sales tax).

    Dangerous things, these large discount codes...I may have to revisit and check out the Serge Lutens selection.

    I would have bought Clive Christian 1872 women had I been mad or able to afford it. It'll have to be Californian Poppy instead!!

    A pure trash and bad taste day for me today. I bought :

    Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy 30ml EdP
    Aquolina Pink Sugar 100ml EdP

    The Midnight Fantasy was bought to match my 30ml bottle for Fantasy as I LOVE the tacky but cute bottle designs. I don't mind the juices either for certain "sillly" days. The Pink Sugar was exciting because it's not readily available in the UK and I found it for a great price. Having bought Serge Lutens, Frederic Malles, Annick Goutal and Tom Ford in October I feel justified on buying trashy perfume in November!

    Ava Luxe Incense Noir. Totally blind buy, but I love her other incense scents and I'm loving agarwood these days, so I jumped on it.

    Bvlgari Voile de Jasmin mini, since I never tried it, I thought I'd start with a wee bit.

    And two samples from Luckyscent...

    the book Fabulous Fragrances, signed by the author Jan Moran (May sweet success perfume your life) at a second hand bookstore for $8

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'm with YOU girl on the Fantasy - got the solide compact and it is adorable. And I love the scent - it's perfect for the beach (where I live) Now you've got my mouth watering for Pink Sugar ...:scurries off to e-tailer sites:

    Meantime invested in LAP Premiere Figuier and am back-ordered on Miller Harris Geranium Bourbon which I thought was totally unobtainable!!

    Got bored hunting for rugs so I went to Marshall's and bought Bobbi Brown Baby for 5.00.
    It's not the best fruity floral in the world but I like the pineapple note and it has a pleasant soapy feel that would be ok at work.

    Still don't know what to put on my floors. And I have to decide very soon, Boo! This is a decision I will have to live with for years, so I'd rather not foul it up.

    Toying with a Bourbon French purchase or two. I like the idea of a floral-white tea scent and also would like to try a couple of others. I've been pleased with my other BF scents.
    Also, am thinking that Spanish Moss from Hove sounds like someting I'd like!

    Received my LTBL infusion from Serena, so I will not have to go without my comfort scent, and my younger daughter says people follow her around just to get a whiff of it! (She is pleased).

    Jumped on the 25% discount Beauty Habit train and ordered a bottle of George Sand by MPG. I love this scent. Thanks for the sample, Kyra!

    Discounted at Loehmann's - Annick Goutal Songes. I thought it was spoiled at first but
    since the bottle has been opened for a day or two the weird bitter scent has left. It REALLY lasts.
