    It has been a while since I wrote here. During this time I have bought:

    NR for him EdT and deo to DH. It suits him wonderful! It is a quiet yet very distinct frag on his skin. - I wish I could wear NR for her, but on my skin it doas not last at all.

    Chanel No 5 bodylotion and deo - I adore them used with the EdP! They are great with No 19 EdP as well.

    Chanel No 19 EdP 30 mL - my third bottle of this scent in EdP, and also deo and bodylotion - my secound bottles off both. Chanel No 19 has got into my wardrobe to stay!

    Stella bodylotion - my secound bottle. Stella seems to have got into my wardrobe to stay, too. There aren´t many scented bodylotions I have bought in a secound bottle.
    Faves right now: Chanel No 19, Stella Rose Absolute, L´Heure Bleu, Elixir de Merveilles, Samsara.

    Went to TJMaxx for inexpensive fragrance gifts for the friends of my daughters who show up during vacations. I collected some CSP scents for 9.99 each and bought some bottles of Tumulte in both versions for 14.99 each.

    I like to have a few things on hand for unexpected situations.

    Chanel no 5 after bath powder for my Mom. Childhood memories. I wonder if it will mean as much to her as it does to me?

    Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle: Angeliques sous le pluie. I'm on the brink of purchasing L'Artisan's Fleur d'Oranger 2007 for the significant other's birthday/Xmas gift. The price is a bit steep, but he adores it.

    My latest Luckyscent purchase came today - many samples!

    L'Artisan - Mandarine Tout Simplement and Timbuktu - both lovely but not intriguing after the first few minutes.

    Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Amour de Cacao - pure sinful chocolate and I will be getting myself a bottle.

    Mazzolari - Alessandro - Same name as one of my favourite Italian footballers who is darkly sensual; this fragrance isn't but I'm enjoying it.

    CdG - Wood Coffee - Could be a bit less complicated and stronger on the coffee side but still fascinating.

    Les Nez - Unicorn Spell - Sharper and earthier than I expected given the description. I don't really get a sense of violets.

    Pilar and Lucy - Twirl All Girly and Tiptoeing through Chambers of the Moon - Lovely but a bit too sweet; good for a walk through a meadow on a windy day.

    Keiko Mecheri - Genie du Bois - Need to sample this for a day or two.

    Laila the Essence of Norway - Water and wildflowers.

    Serendipity 3 - Serendipitous - I don't quite hear the Oompa Loompas but it's still a great chocolate frag.

    Aqaba - Midnight Sun - Very mysterious and sophisticated; a fragrance for a woman who has lived richly, wisely and well. I'm not there yet.

    I got a miniature SN Datura Noir today. I'm not very hooked on tuberose, so this mini is enough for me. Didn't pay much for this, so it's worth it! Nice scent, but very sweet - I can't see how a man can wear this .. very feminine

    I know I'm supposed to be on a fragrance fast until January (at least!) but ....... I couldn't resist 50ml EdP of YSL Nu. It was SUCH a bargain at £11.05 for a fragrance that I used to love and wear that I couldn't resist. I'm still getting a thrill having the the metallic disc in my fragrance drawer and the smoky incense is just perfect in this cold UK weather.

    Ah, well does it count if I bought it as a Christmas present for someone else? I got my best friend a little handbag-size of Yves Rocher's Voile D'Ambre as she's had the blues and I want her to have something in her bag all the time to make her feel good. I also bought her the parfum for her dressing table.

    But while I was in there I also picked up a little 5ml trial size of their Iris Noir and a little 10ml of their vanille bourbon for myself as well.

    On Saturday I have to go to the Body Shop for a bottle of their Amorcito perfume for my goddaughter for Xmas - she's getting to be a teenager and I want to get her 'proper' perfume but nothing with Paris Hilton's name on it. (I know - I'm a snob!)

When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for.

    I've got the 3 Secrets D'essences scents in my wish list right now: I'm planning to get the 50ml EdTs as well as the Rose and Voile D'Ambre parfums, although I have to wait until January. Yves Rocher are such great value and good quality that it's hard not to go a bit nuts when ordering! I love Neonatura Cocoon as well. Let me know what you think of the Voile D'ambre Parfum when you can.

    My Genvieve and Winter Star arrived today! And I think I love Gen even more than the EDP form. There is something timeless and classic about it, but not deja-vu. The EDP is, for me, more animalic than the parfum and the florals are more fully developed. The parfum seems rosier and fruitier, the EDP is more multifaceted.

    AND, I'm thrilled I got the discount! YAY.

    Winter Star is gorgeous too. I appreciate this one even more now and feel like the cat that got the canary having a whole glorious bottle. I believe I will be wearing it tomorrow. Yes, I know it is quite potent and very grand, but when I tried the sample at work, everybody loved it. And what's wrong with something sumptuous to get me through the day?

    I'll be wearing these very very often! I would rank these with my beautiful vintage Lanvins and classic Carons any day.

    Well I bought gifts today:

    Shalimar - for my cousin, who only wears Shalimar - sigh - don't dare try anything else on her

    Terracotta Voile d'Ete - for my goddaughter, who hates frags but loved this one

    Acqua Classica Borsari - for my brother who stopped wearing scent about 10 years ago, but loved this - I gave him a sample - he wore it to work and got an instant compliment from a co-worker - he's hooked. Also got him Acqua Della Terre Rosse Borsari

    Un Jardin Sur Le Nil - Hermes - for my sister, who fell in love with it when she visited me last weekend.

    Comptoir Sud Pacifique, Vanille Abricot - for my grand niece who likes sweet things

    For me (since I couldn't resist discount and free shipping) Sira Des Indes -Jean Patou, Eau Legere, Limited Edition -Boucheron

    In the last two days I bought followings:

    Calèche by Hermès - EDT 50ml (it is so much like the Y by YSL)
    Amazone (original), Hermès - Vintage EDT with a brown plastic cap, splash.

    Here comes the best part, I finally got hold of a bottle of Femme by Parfums Rochas - it is an Eau de Cologne. It is probably vintage as it is in a white box with the lace pattern motifs. The bottle is shaped like the hourglass but flat.
