    Not today, yesterday, I bought
    Infusion D'homme (lady also gave me a sample of it?)
    Dior Homme (replacement, I'm about to run out)
    Rive Gauche pour Homme - a fantastic bargain. Apparently her store are no longer going to be selling it, so it was reduced down to £8!!
    I noticed that they weren't displaying Gucci Pour Homme, (which was the only thing I had gone in to sample) so I asked if they had got rid of that. She told me they had but gave me a full size tester bottle that she'd kept onto in the stockroom (no lid) because I'm a regular customer!
    And I received a sample of 1million.

    It says a fresh spicy leather on the little packet. To me, I find it a sweet woody scent. No freshness, especially the opening which is quite a strong boozy smell. Drydown reminds me of Black XS, but richer. I honestly cannot smell the leather at all.

    I think he meant that Paco Rabanne 1 Million scent, not the "Really Super Cool Awesome MILLION BUCKS" crap.


    I'm starting to ebay scents I don't wear enough to justify looking at next to the others... but I quickly replenished whatever leaves before it left with Chanel Coromandel today. It's really great stuff! (and jeez, I've got a lot of it now.. 200ml). I just put photos up in my album of the fun unpacking of it!

    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    Congrats on this.... Coromandel is hands down my favorite Chanel and one my favorites of all time. I haven't bought the 200ml yet but once I'm done with my TPC decant I most certainly will. It's good that it comes in a large size b/c if you're like me you'll like bathing in it.

    Anyway, today I bought:

    Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental - my first SL!

    Parfums Delrae Bois de Paradis - I thought I wanted Debut, but it took 5 minutes for this to be on my skin before I know I needed this.

    Congrats bbBD - the purchase of one's first bottle of Serge Lutens is always a reason to celebrate.

    Isn't Bois de Paradis wonderful? Roses and cinnamon never smelled so good.

    Odeur 53 and Odeur 71 by Comme des Garcons (mini's)



    Bought these used from Ebay.

    I love O71 and I wanted it back in my wardrobe after I finished up my decant of it months ago - the O53 for more 'completist' reasons, it's still a headache inducer for me.

    Today, I bought the following:

    2 bottles of 4.0 oz Polo Modern Reserve and a regular Polo deodorant stick to wear with it.

    6.7 oz bottle of Prada Infusion D'Homme and a matching shower gel


    I am in love with both of these but I must say that I must write about Polo Modern Reserve. I am in Heaven!

    I've been in a Guerlain mood recently, can you tell? Just call me Mr. Guerlain II.

    I scored a vintage bottle of L' Heure Bleue in the Eau de Cologne formulation by Guerlain.

    The top notes are gone, but the middle and base notes are still intact. This was a blind buy for me - I have never smelled LHB. It's incredibly wearable. I'm reminded of a fizzy, almond flavored cream soda. Just sweet enough, but still refreshing. Sillage is discreet (which is fine w/ me) and the longevity is excellent.

    I'm very happy with this blind buy. After I'm comfortable with this formulation, I want to test the EdT, EdP and parfum. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

    Received in a trade - Dior Bois d'Argent.

    Finally! I've been wanting to get this off my wishlist and into my wardrobe for a year. Many thanks to BNer mobyv for the trade.

    Now... onto the next obscure Dior. I've been eying a bottle of Eau Fraiche de Christian Dior. Any recommendations on this? What little I've seen has been positive, and I have a thing for vintage and obscure Dior.

    I know that Ruggles and bront82 own and wear EF. If you like Dior and you like Roudnitska (I see you own two Dior scents he did: Eau Savage and Diorella), then I think you'll enjoy EF.

    IMO, it's a very summer scent - but don't let that stop you.

    I bought Andy Tauer L'Air du Désert Marocain on Sunday at The Scent Bar.
    I had been trying to decide between this and Lonestar Memories for a while now.
