    Default What to order from Beautyhabit?

    Well there are about 2 weeks left of the 25% off sale at beautyhabit and I'm wondering if there is anything else to buy to take advantage of this sale. A few weeks ago I ordered The Different Company Sel de Vetiver which I really like. Today I ordered these:
    The Different Company - Un Parfum de Sens et Bois - 3x10ml
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Ambre Precieux - 90ml
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Santal Noble - 90ml
    Ortigia - Ambra Nera Acqua di Colonia - 100ml
    Parfums de Nicolaï - New York Eau de Toilette

    Based on these and my wardrobe what else on beautyhabit do you think I would enjoy?
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!

    I would say give PdN Vetyver a try too. It's an interesting variation on vetiver.

    Great post. I have been wondering if there are any 'hidden' treasures that don't get much love or press on here, say like something from Satellite, or one of the lesser known houses. I mean, for 25% off, this could be the time to take a flyer on one.

    I may have to just learn to love New York and get that!!

    Wow! I really like all five you just ordered. I can't remember when someone had a list of five that I liked everyone of them. With that in mind there are 3 at beautyhabit that I enjoy also.

    I've never tried any of the Ortigia's or even heard of the brand but they sound interesting so I ordered the Ambra Nera blindly. I've never tried any of the Norma Kamalis.


    Santal Noble I ordered because I've used up my old bottle and I bought a new 100 ml from somewhere else and unfortunately the new Santal Noble is different and not as good. I've heard they changed Route du Vetiver too. I'm really hoping that I get the 90 ml bottles from beautyhabit. I'm also going to send an email to MPG complaining of the changes.
    Ambre Precieux and New York I owned in the past.

    Fougere Bengale I bought when it first came out and for some reason I hated it.
    I've been considering PdN Vetyver too as I have a sample and like it but I have too many vetivers right now. Can anyone compare this to Lubin's Vetiver?
    I've never tried any of the I Profumi de Firenze line. I might try them out but for some reason I'm afraid they might be too feminine.

    Magnifico 9: Peperoncino probably would be slightly feminine for you, so don't try it.
    I prefer the Lubin Vetiver over PdN
    Sorry to hear you hated Fougere Bengale. Everytime I wear it I'm blown away how much I enjoy it.
    The only Ortigia I've tried is there Lime. I thought it was pretty good though.

    I just went to the site with the intention of buying at 25% discount, but I don't anything about 25% off.
    Maybe the sale is over?

    (I put in my basket Nikolai's New York but it was $95. That didn't seem discounted)

    Yes, put the code in the specified box. It is an amazing sale as they have niche scents that no one ever puts on sale. Carthusia, Maitre et Gantier, Nicolai, Diptyque, etc.

    How about Carthusia Uomo? For a fresh scent, it is pretty interesting. Cote Bastide Ambre is one of the best values out there in Amber!

    I've gone hog wild with this sale. Here's what I've bought so far:

    Parfums de Nicolaï - Cédrat Intense
    Parfums de Nicolaï - Maharadjah
    Parfums de Nicolaï - New York
    Parfums de Nicolaï - Pour Homme
    L'Occitane - Green Tea with Mint
    Hierbas de Ibiza - Agua de Colonia Fresca
    Andrée Putman - Préparation Parfumée
    Diptyque - Eaux de Toilette Collection
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Parfum D'Habit
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Racine
    Maître Parfumeur et Gantier - Santal Noble
    Serge Lutens - Sa Majesté la Rose
    Serge Lutens - Un Lys
    BURN - Hinoki Temple Incense Candle
    BURN RARE - Javanese Ebony Candle

    A couple of these were blind buys, which I'm usually against, but I couldn't resist at these prices.

    I heard a rumor that Virgilio might be discontinued, so I just bought a spare bottle.

    How were you able to get the SL's with the code discount? Did you have to call it in?

    Do a search for Serge Lutens from the home page. You can then add the results to your cart.

    I know. Ignore that and just type "Sergre Lutens" in the search box and press the enter key. You will have the option of adding the search results to your cart and actually ordering them online.

    as well as some skin and hair stuff.

    I am still trying to decide myself. I have some samples from my first order to test out. Plus I am hoping to get to Barneys before the end of the month to check out some Serge Lutens and other fragrances.

    BTW - You may be able to get some of the MPG fragrances cheaper on FragranceNet. Their regular price is $84.19 plus they always have discount codes on top of that. I haven't ordered any though. Has anyone?
