    Default Today I bought ... February 2009 PURCHASES

    Yesterday I bought Tom Ford Black Orchid at the duty free.

    And before that Le Maroc Pour Elle, Aoud Rose Petals and Noix de Tuberéuse from Miller Harris on the 31st. So I feel spoiled rotten with 4 new bottles in such a short time.

    What did you get or going to get this month?
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Bought some Chanel #5 from tvlampboy's sales thread ~ his price on this was so great, I feel like a thief! ($16.00 for 1/2 bottle of the edt )

    That is a good buy Ubu.

    I purchased Jicky EDT last week and I also have Jicky parfum to be delivered this week. I feel so spoiled.

    Do I want the Jicky EDP too? I'm totally infatuated with Jicky.

    Tonight I ordered L'Artisan Jour de Fête as a birthday gift for myself --turning 53 later this week. The funny thing is I generally don't like vanilla scents! But I just love this, couldn't stop smelling the sample, and it lasts and lasts-- and it is completely different from anything I already owned.

    Congrats! And yay, another convert! Every time I see JdF mentioned I enjoy it immensely - I know it's ridiculous, but I feel almost maternal about it. It's such an underexposed fuzzy little scent.


    (Finally) took delivery of 100ml Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge today - but I'd forgotten it comes without a cap. Eek. I like caps. Anyone willing to part with theirs in exchange for samples and eternal gratitude?
    Also won (so doesn't count) SJP Covet.

    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    JdF is so hard to get though it seems L´Artisan retailer here in iceland is always saying they can´t seem to order it.

    Lian,

    Can you not order from the L'Artisan website? That's where I ordered it from.

    I've went a little wild the past week or so. A friend gifted me with a bottle of Ralph Lauren Notorious. I ordered a bottle of Kenzo Amour Edp and some Chanel No. 5 edp.

    Today I finally bought Samsara edp. I have been doused in it since this afternoon and so far no-one has recoiled in horror so that's a plus!

    I *was* going to buy myself a bottle after payday (and I'm torn between three choices: Samsara EDP, Daim Blond or Dzongkha), which is making it delightfully agonising). However, listen to my tale of woe: I smashed my iPod headphones between my car door, then, disoriented by the disaster, I didn't put the iPod back where it normally lives...and two days later I couldn't find it anywhere. I looked everywhere and in the end realised I must have put it in my coat pocket and dropped it. So, I spent my available cash on getting a nice new iPod, leaving no room for anything extra besides food & travel for a few weeks. It's better than the old one and I've had fun with it, but this weekend, when I was packing for my business trip, I dug my hand deep down into the side pocket of my canvas "book bag" and felt something odd - oops - the old iPod! So now my husband has my old iPod and I have no money for perfume.

    I'm reading all of your contributions and living through them!

    The Christian Lacroix Tumulte pour homme I ordered arrived today. Thanks to a tip from Wordbird I got it for under 10 francs (about 8.50 $) plus a free mascara. Yay! I'll have a cedar celebration in smoky eyes.

    Just placed an order for a 15 ml bottle of Angel EdP, plus Lancome Tropiques 50 ml. The latter is a blind buy, but I liked the notes listed....:bounce:

    (-and just having typed this, it struck me that you can never ever know what a perfume is going to smell like, just by reading the notes, believe me! )

    Tomorrow, I am FINALLY buying Jour de Fete. I am delayed a day by reading about the Parfum 1 sale, but not for long.

    I will finally end my long losing streak of unwearable purchases. What a historic day.

    Ordered a FB of Annayake's Miyako. It's thanks to you fellow perfume lovers I even know about that gem (since it was a limited edition). But then again, that can be said about a lot of fragrances.

    The Perfumed Court has just about the whole Pacifica perfume collection now! Yay! I've been wanting to sample Malibu Lemon Blossom and Tuscan Blood Orange for what seems like the longest time, and now those samples are on their way.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    So far this month: (The damages, so to speak)
    Hermessence Discovery set of travel sizes with Poivre Samarcande, Rose Ikebana, Ambre Narguille and Vetiver Tonka. I only wanted the last two really.

    Clinique Happy Heart which I liked in the store, and got for a song on eBay.

    Indult Reve En Cuir.

    Michael Kors signature..several samples because I'm still reviewing and testing scents with boozy notes (and some day will post about my adventures!)

    Aquolina Pink Sugar Solid..it's shaped like a lollipop and striped pink and white like a pinwheel. So cute, I just HAD to have it.

    Samples from TPC
