    Default Today I bought (January 2008)

    Went to Nordstrom and found they were featuring YSL L'Homme, which I did not buy when it first hit the market earlier last year (2007). I decided it wasn't so bad, and so I got a 50 ml. bottle. Any thoughts on this one? I know some people didn't think much of it, including me, back then...
    Yr good bud,

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."

    Ordered a bottle of Tauer's L'Air du Desert Moracain from Luckyscent, got free shipping and then next day, the $15 off deal, but that means I saved $8 instead of $15. Oh well, it shipped.

    God help me! Thursday I impulsively called Bergdorf Goodman in New York and ordered "Derby". I am excited since I like this classic discontinued fragrance but the $190.00 price tag is somewhat staggering! Am thinking of ordering "Yatagan" soon since I like it very much as well.

    On Jan. 15 I returned the Derby to Bergdorf Goodman. Went out of town on business and when I came back I tried a shot from my vial from TPC and decided I liked it OK but not enough to justify the price and the fact that it was a splash bottle 125 ml. Will definitely be purchasing Yatagan soon though.

    Due to that Tuscany thread yesterday, I ordered some samples of Tuscany Pour Uomo Forte samples off Ebay. Loved the original Tuscany so I'm interested to smell the difference in this discontinued version.

    I'm going to Neiman Marcus for a scent of Jicky to see if I really want it. ( I know that I have the name--A certain mystique of the fragrance dug into my psyche and I fell in love) Now I have to go on the blind date.

    Yesterday, I bought Narciso Rodriguez for Him and Chanel Egoiste Platinum...I love fougeré scents. I already owned YSL Rive Gauche and Creeds Green Irish Tweed...wonderful!!!!
    Strange is that Chanel Egoiste Platinum got a middle-note, which reminds me of GIT...who else smells that?
