    Congrats with your nice gift set! We don't exchange gifts at Christmas time, we do that on December 5 to celebrate Sinterklaas' (Santa Claus' ancient ancestor ) birthday. Among other things, I received a bottle of Chanel No. 19 EDP. For Christmas, I bought myself Frederic Malle L'Eau d'Hiver and Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur.
    Looking to swap/buy/receive for free () the following samples/decants:
    Indult Tihota & Rêve en Cuir
    Chant d'Aromes extrait
    Vetiver pour Elle (5ml decant)


    Selling/swapping:
    Versace The Dreamer 50ml (1.7oz) BNIB

    Well, I've purchased a few random things for myself this month, but what will certainly by my last purchase of the year and a real Christmas present to myself is the bottle of Homage Attar scheduled to arrive on the 31st. A very merry Christmas indeed.

    I know that Jaguar for Men (original), 100ml of Alain Delon's Iquitos and a Calvin Klein miniatures collection have been bought for me. I'll be more than happy with those.

    I don't allow people to buy me frags. If I don't tell them what to get me, I'm too picky to get blind gifts, and I wanted to get Green Valley but knowing my rents I would get one from ebay or something. So I got a bunch of gift cards and Lalique Encre Noir, Penhaligons Castile, and Green Valley shall be mine within the coming weeks. YAY! Merry Christmas everyone!

    People don't buy me frags either they're all a bit too scared too lol.

    I got some money, so I am going to treat myself to either a bottle of Santos by Cartier or Eau des Beaux by L'Occitane, both of which are very classy elegant frags.

    Happy Xmas everyone!

    Great gifts, everyone! Even 3 days off is wonderful! And as for Tag & Axe - hey, it's the thought, right?

    We are having a super-scented Christmas, here in Outer Cowtown.

    Ambience is being provided by a Slatkin & Co. Fir Balsam scented candle.

    My wife got L'Instant de Guerlain, Guerlain Météorites, a Marc Jacobs Daisy solid perfume necklace, and (drumroll) Les Floralies by Creed. She also got a tall crystal perfume bottle w/ applicator to go with L'Instant.

    I got Tiffany For Men, and two minis from Banana Republic - Cordovan and Classic.

    My son got Hugo Boss Pure - his favorite among all the samples and aftershaves he's tried.

    Last but not least, I received a Macy's gift card with Infinite Possibilities.

    To prevent my wife from buying something that would be returned, I made a Luckyscent wishlist and forwarded it to her...not subtle. I know.

    Anyway, I was very pleased. I received: Farmacita SS Anunziata del 1561 Chia and some TPC decants that still haven't arrived but should soon. I'm guessing but I think my wife bought me a large decant of Guerlain Apres L'Ondee parfum and a sample of Guerlain Djedi.

    I posted this earlier, but my gift to self was Guerlain (Les Elixirs Charnels) Oriental Brulent

    Well, I was going to buy Alt Innsbruck tobacco cologne for myself, but my wife did it for me, with a pledge of greater tolerance towards my fragrance obsession (the latter part was a particularly nice gift). I got myself SL Borneo 1834 and SMN Acqua di Cuba - oh, and a pair of English-made antique leather full brogues from Barker's .

    Curve Kicks for Men... unfortunately I don't like it. It's got a mint vibe that I don't care for

    Though I'm surprised and appreciative that my mother attempted! I didn't even think she'd get me something let alone something I hadn't tried yet. I can at least return it to get something else.

    As far as Frags, nothing from anyone. I'm going to Blue Mercury on Saturday to pick up a bottle of Dzing! I was just at the zoo a week ago and the elephant area certainly was redolent with many Dzing notes.
    Your nostrils, which will dilate immesurably in unspeakable contentment, in motionless ecstasy, will ask nothing better for space, for they will be full of fragrance, as if perfumes and incense; for they will be glutted with complete happiness, like angels who dwell in the peace and magnificence of pleasent heaven.

    Lots of stuff, but no scents, except from myself. I'm expecting to pick up a couple of Guerlains that I ordered to be ready tomorrow: Rose Barbare from the L'Art et la Matière series, and Gourmand Coquin from the Les Elixirs Charnels series. I already have some of the others from both series, so I'm kind of on the way to completing the set —at least the ones I'm interested in...

    Two of the Original Polo Gift Sets. The ones with 4oz EDT Spray, 3.4oz After Shave Balm, and Deodorant. In perhaps one of the greatest deals ever, my mom found them for $12 apiece at either Belk or Dillards(I forgot which one). The box design had been discontinued, so major markdown.

    I didn't receive anything; nobody ever thinks to give me fragrances. I did, however, take adavantage of an Amazon $10 off deal and gifted myself with Rive Gauche Pour Homme and Sander for Men. Haven't received them yet, though. Those coupled with the Carlos Santana I decided to get with a gift card I received (and which I am very pleased with) should make for some nice holiday goodies, I think.

    Default Re: What did you receive for Christmas?

    I didn't get any fragrances, just books, which is actually cool because I read a lot. I did however bought Rive Gauche for my dad and a limited edition of L'Eau D'Issey for my mum. The latter is really nice, better imho than the regular L'Eau.

    For myself I am gonna purchase Shalimar as soon as holiday is over. I am so glad I discovered it. It'll always be a Christmas scent for me from now on.

    Guerlain Vetiver Frozen, 2.5 ounce. I haven't opened it, so if anyone wants it (swap or sale), just PM me. I already have Vetiver de Puig and like that just fine. Don't need another one.

    Great : Habit Rouge EDC and Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan

    Bad : YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme which is the vilest smelling shite I have ever had the misfortune of smelling in my life , exactly the same as 70's favourite Brut by Faberge , minging beyond belief

    I am over the moon as I received one of the 200ml Les Exclusifs from Chanel - the one which I think must be up there as one of the best new fragrances of 2008 - Sycomore. My partner tells me it's the last bottle left in Australia (if the SA is to be believed!). I've got to say its one of the classiest packagings I have seen in fragrances too - from the heavy glass bottle to the black and white box to the special "Les Exclusifs" Chanel carry bag with a glittering black fabric flower magnetic snap enclosure. Bliss!
