    When a certain C.O. Bigelow store went out of business a while back, I scooped up 3 Miller Harris 100ml bottles and 4 Carthusia 50ml bottles with bulb atomisers for around $30 each. And a huge chunk of my designer collection comes courtesy of Target when they clearanced out their fragrances (simply for a change in packaging) at 75% off.

    lol I bet you did. That would be like winning the lottery in fragrance hunting terms.

    My best bargain has to be getting 100 ml Amouage Gold for 1/2 price. It was just before they put it into the creamy coloured box so the (authorised) retailer was selling them off. Would have been better had it been Jub XXV ;o)

    I have dreams of walking into an old lost dusty chemist in some remote valley owned by some mysterious buxom lady and finding boxes of vintage frags for £5 each. ...... sigh.

    Anyway i have another reason to bump my thread from a few days ago as i've just this minute blind bought:
    BN 100ml Eau de Cologne Imperiale for £10 (i reckon the bee bottle is probably worth the price alone).
    I love eBay.

    I love basenotes shopping threads!

    One of my best bargains: L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extreme 2.5 oz new in box from amazon, $34, including shipping.

    Another good one from a couple of months ago: New in box flacon of Creed Cuir de Russie $350. That's regular retail, but I think it's one of the last new bottles out there. I checked ebay and other online sellers the day I received it, and found it listed for three to five times what I paid. Nice.
