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

    Whee! Looks like I'm kicking off this month, though the purchase what not for myself, but for my darling man. He's never much been into fragrance, but a while back I got him a few samples and turned out he liked Virgin Island Water. So I've got him a small bottle of that and the nice man at Harrods threw in a few samples for me too (I guess having a loyalty card is worth something, then!)

    1 Dec 2007 - I bought a bottle of 50ml Serge Luten's Louve and they also gave me a 15ml Daim Blond as a gift with purchase. YAY

    I have ordered a bottle of 8.5oz Angélique Encens and a bottle of 50ml Blue Sugar. I was told that they have a bit of problem with the transaction. I need to call the States and fix the problem on a business day.

    I bought Balmain's Ivoire for $14.99 at Marshall's. Yay me!

    I also won a $200 gift certificate to Aedes in Otto's basenotes contest on the men's board, but undecided about what to choose. This will be fun. ::rubs hands together like Mr. Burns on The Simpsons::

    A back-up bottle of Mille et Une Rose because I dreamed the Perfume Goddess whispered in my ear that this frag might just disappear. A hunch based on no facts - call it intuition

    85 mls of Fifi Chachnil in the pretty pink bottle...this scent has entirely captivated me. It's feminine in the extreme, with a bit of snap to it. Sort of like Tabac Blond in reverse? Tabac Blond is leather and high heel boots, Fifi is pale pink chiffon ....with stilettos and a garter belt. Why am I relating the two? Is it the leather notes that are dominant in Tabac Blond, more subtle in the Fifi, but decidedly present? And the way they make me feel.

    That is such a beauty, Zibeline, I can still remember the first time I sampled this one, it brought tears to my eyes, and made me feel open and soft in a very disconcerting manner right there in the middle of the department store!

    congratulations.

    I bought DKNY Delicious Night yesterday. I smelled some of the Hermes perfumes and I think I may be getting a couple of them as well. It was so funny because the salesguy kept asking me had a tried this and that. Everyone he asked about I told him I had that. He laughed.

    I received my Immortelle l"Amour today - purplebird, I can see why you are smitten with Ayala Moriel...the flacon is exquisite.
    Alongside it came the tea, I drank a cup tonight with two of my children, it is marvelous. I had it unsweetened, my daughter used honey. The canister suggests using a bit of maple syrup and milk or cream. seriously yummy, folks. Tea drinkers, you NEED this!

    Today I got Bois d'Iris by Different Company.
    Amazing - This is the perfect iris fragrance for me
    A superbly blended mix - I can't stop sniffing!

    I think I have to be in a "Iris-mode" this fall. I already has got Hiris (gosh ..), and I'm waiting for L'Instant Iris Millesime. Of course I have my old beauty Vol de Nuit as well.

    This one is SO beautiful, wear it in the best of health! This may be my favorite Rose Patchouli combination. It is elegant to the bone!

    Today, I received an ebay trio of vintage Lentherics: Tweed, Confetti, and the coveted (by me) Miracle! The real miracle is that they were all sealed (Lentheric used those wonderful plastic and foil seals) and are beautiful as can be!

    A very yay day from the fragrance perspective!

    I'm a MONSTER.

    Today I bought YSL Rive Gauche, Baby Doll, Paris, Cinema and Opium. YESTERDAY I bought a lot of Bond No. 9 samples on eBay. The day before that? Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Anisia Bella (which didn't work for me and is for sale at the link below). Before that... Salvador Dali Dalissime, Bond No. 9 Bryant Park, Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia, and, WORST OF ALL, WHILE I WAS WRITING THIS:

    Robert Piguet Fracas
    JPG Classique LE bottle
    Penhaligon's Ellensia, Malabah, Lily and Spice and Artemisia.

    And I WONDER where my bloody paycheck goes! (AND we're only five days into December! *cries*)

    Took advantage of two Michael Storer specials: He's making his "Winter Star" still-in-test-mode scent available just to us Basenoters if we order this week. Also for PayPal customers there's a "buy one, get a second fragrance at 50% off!" There's nothing on the web site, but you need to put in "REBATE" in the PayPal payment.

    Soooo... I gave myself a monster Hanukkah present: Winter Star, Monk, Djin and Yvette. But such a deal! And I will smell glorious, even while I try to make my mortgage payments.

    Yay indeed, Zimbeline! Your ebay score sounds fantastic. Wear them all in good health, and ENJOY!

    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

    I got my bottle of La Part des Anges today
    I ended up buying the last bottle in stock in John Lewis, who are having a 10% off day so it was cheaper than expected AND the sales assistant loaded me up with lots of samples, free gifts and travel sizes. That's my last bottle of perfume for 2007. My scent budget is officially spent for the year!

    A good thing too, as I tested the Chanel Les Exclusives and Hermessences fragrances today. I've already planned most of my monthly purchases for 2008 from them!

    Today I bought Narciso Rodriguez Musc for Her. I like it, it's a warm,very light floral/musk that I think even non musk wearers might enjoy. It's feminine and soft, a skin scent. I think of it as a snuggle scent, the kind the requires your sweetie to get really close in order to take in your aroma. I must say, although I prefer quieter scents as a rule, this one is almost too quiet. I have to apply quite liberally and often which is unusual for me. I am happy to bathe in the lovely scent but the longevity is not what I expect from an oil, especially for the price. I am curious to see how long my bottle lasts.
