    There was (and still is) a Tuscan Leather on ebay for $139.95 NIB and free shipping. After the ebay cashback (fell to 25% but still... it's 25%!), it'll come out to less than $105. I'm really loving this line! Naysayers, say nay! But I.. I say yay!

    Over the last couple days I've received a 15ml Chanel Cristalle (gosh, doesn't it smell like Diorella?), a 15ml of Elixir des Merveilles and a 30ml of Guerlain Les Meteorites. My TPC decant of Le Labo Patchouli 24 arrived too.

    Prada Infusion d'Iris - I'm such a sucker for iris.

    I'd feel much happier about this purchase if I hadn't seen the same bottle at an airport shop for $13 less than I paid for it at Nieman Marcus about an hour earlier...

    I pulled the trigger and ordered By Kilian - Prelude to Love. An aweome, modern and very refreshing take on an eau de cologne. The weather is still quite hot down here in Miami so ive been finding myself reaching for it often. Ive almost killed my 15ml decant of it.

    Oh god I'm an idiot, I promised myself I wouldn't buy anymore. Well today I went to Holt Renfrew and tried every scent imaginable. The ones I liked were Creed Love In Black (think I'll get it for my girlfriend), and Bond no. 9 Coney Island. However, they're way out of my pricerange. I went upstairs and found an absolutely divine one that I'm sure a lot of people here know - L'instant de guerlain pour homme. I snapped and bought the 125ml. I am a weak, weak individual.

    Well my whole view on cologne was flipped upside this afternoon. I went to the best shop ever where I tried a million different Montales, Serge Lutens, and PGs. I settled down with Steam Aoud by Montale, EdP, 50ml. It is absolutely divine. I also got a ton of samples.

    I've found myself rather unhappy with my random fragrance collection consisting of way too many impulse buys. I managed to sell them all off within the past few months only to find myself with absolutely zero frags as of last weekend. I thought to myself, "Oh...this is going to fun..." So..I two afternoons I managed to put a nice dent in my wallet with some of my favorites that I adore, but haven't owned full bottles of til now. Here's what I purchased this week:

    8.4 Flacon of GIT (For the office only as I personally find it rather run of the mill)
    75 ml Nerori Sauvage (One of my love's even with its fleeting short comings)
    180 ml Acqua Di Parma Colonia (One frag I cannot live without)
    100 ml Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet (Another frag I cannot live without)
    100 ml Penhaligon's English Fern (doesn't move mountains, but I find it uplifting on a cloudy day)
    100 ml Amouage Lyric (My first blind buy based on notes and have been enjoying it a great deal)
    50 ml Amouage Ciel (I've never been able to get enough of this...no frag's moved me soooo much)
    75 ml Guerlain Vetiver (Soapy spice that works great year round)

    Hey Dyendal! I went to Holt Renfrew in Vancouver today and picked up a 100 mL bottle of Chanel Pour Monsieur (1955), apparently unavailable in the U.S. but on the shelves in Canada. Also bought a 50 mL bottle of Vetiver Extraordinaire, which was inevitable as it's been on my radar for over a year now and I just couldn't pass it up. The nice SA also gave me 10 samples of Bois 1920 and Profumo di Firenzi as I was leaving. Next stop: The Perfume Shoppe!
