Ahh, Serena is fantastic, I can see why so many people love her She just sent me a really friendly e-mail back, saying she doesn't do samples, but because i've never smelt an ava luxe scent before (Which I havent) she can sell me some samples ! I'm going to order a couple after a bit more research into them

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
Well, Pellen is sending me some samples, so i'm going to see what I receive from her first, and then i'll be buying 3-4 of the ones I haven't received off Pellen. I'll probably also buy a bottle or two from the samples that Pellen sends me, simply because of the price, at $26, they'd make fantastic gifts too
My LTBL arrived today $26 may sound cheap but for us Aussies after conversion to local currency and postage the total cost was just over AUD50 for a 30mL bottle.

Sadly I feel like I really missed out here.
I've only had a chance to try a few of AL creations
and have fallen in love with each and every one of them.
Ambre Tibet, No. 23, Loukhoum, Milk, Shisha, and LTBL.
I'm so curious about
Madame X, Midnight Violet, Moksha, Kama, Tuberose Diabolique
since I read about them so frequently on Basenotes.
I too will just have to see about contacting her and
arringing for a few purchases. Hopefully her site goes up soon .
Autumn treasures: Magnetism, Midnight Orchid, Tea for Two,
Aimez-Moi, Chinatown, Dzongkha, Five O'Clock Au Gingembre,
Cittá di Kyoto, Jasmin de Nuit, Jasmin Full, Kelly Calèche, Venezia,
Douce Amère, Eau de Charlotte, Falling In Love, Chergui, Prada,
Rose Alexandrie, Hypnôse, Omnia, Flowerbomb, Poivre Piquant,

Bending backwards is like falling in love, come bend with me

Agent P, she has a shop on etsy.com (http://avaluxe.etsy.com) where you can purchase her fragrances. What she has available changes from time to time, so it's always worth peeking. She has Madame X, Moksha and Kama up right now, along with some others.
Just got the sexyest set of samples off the fantastic Pellen! <3
Tried Milk on one wrist, Shisha on the other. Shisha is fantastic, totally cool and hot. I'd wear it anywhere.
I'm liking Milk too, not as much as Shisha due to the sweetness, but it's one of those scents you wear when you know no one's going to be smelling you (as it's quite feminine imo for a guy!) But, i'd blates wear it to sleep in
I've tried quite a few, too. I love Queen Bess for a spicy cinnamon kick. I also really like Pearl Musk. I used to wear Creative Scentualization Perfect Veil almost exclusively 4-5 years ago and Pearl Musk is almost identical to it and much cheaper.
I've never tried an Ava Luxe fragrance, but I REALLY like the sound of LTBL and Milk! I'm tempted to order, but like Jillsy has said earlier in this thread... with currency conversion and international postage that $26 bottle isn't nearly so cheap anymore!!
If I did make an order, then I'm starting to think that maybe if I ordered several different scents it'd be more worthwhile. That way I'm getting more perfumes, and for only + $1 on the postage for each one.
Ah, so many fragrant desires, so little expendable cash....
Looky, looky !
It's LISA !!!
Wow, what a hot pic, baby....
[I ordered a bottle of QB, it makes me think of you !]
