    I scored some good deals on Garage and Skai in the marketplace..

    A really good swap deal with a very fine Basenoter lands Odeur 71 in my hands in a few days.
    This is a blind swap for me. I hope it's as weird as it sounds.

    1. Eau Sauvage 100ml
    2. Black Jean- Deodorant Spray (Since the edt is not available, I thought the 150ml deodorant spray will be the next best thing. I hope.)

    Can anyone tell me how close is a deodorant spray to the real thing? I also saw deodorant spray of Mitsouko, Heritage, Zino, etc.... are they worth getting at all?

    January 2: Baldeserini Ambre and Jean Patou Sira des Indes, $24.00 each at Marshall's and Demeter Jasmine at $6.00. How I love a bargain! Btw there was only seven people shopping in the store. Amazing. I was the only one in the fragrance area. Go figure.

    Inspired by your post I went to my local Marshall's. I found lots of Valentino, but no Sira des Indes. I bought YSL Cinema EDP instead.

    Bought-

    1. Givenchy Insense 100ml
    2. CK One 08 Summer 100ml tester
    3. DK Men's Unleaded 100ml

    The last purchase is probably the most interesting one. Hard to find. Surprised to see it dumped in one forlorn corner at a bin. Love the burning rubber smell of the juice. Kind of remind of Dior's Fahrenheit. Hate, hate the bottle design though. What was Donna Karen thinking?

    Went back and bought DK Men/Fuel, the old bottle, after realizing that Unleaded and DK Men are different frags altogether. Anyway, the retailer is clearing DK Men really cheap and down to the last bottle here in Singapore.

    I know DK Men Fuel will be reinstated but the vintage 'hideous' bottle might be a collector's item one day. lol.

    Ever put in the first bid - super low - on an eBay item and then win the bottle without meaning to? Happened to me today:

    vintage Hermes Equipage ($20!)

    Plus, of all the bottles and samples I've amassed, my wife's A#1 favorite is the obscure Une Fleur de Chanel, of which I have little remaining. I bought it for me, but she's moved it to 'her side of the bathroom'. Bottles pop on eBay now and then, and I jumped on one for her.

    Vetiver Refreshing Body Splash by Guerlain



    A beautifully sheer, jolting and moisturizing interpretation of Guerlain's classic scent. If you find the original Vetiver too much for you, you gotta try this - although this is discontinued guys. But my husband was able to source and snag a bottle for me as a belated Christmas present. Full review to come soon.
