Thread: Today I Bought (February '09)
Today I splurged a bit!
I went to Pierre Guillaume's store here in my city, and while I didn't get to meet him (though I found out when he will come to the store next and so I will have some chance then!), I did buy his L'Ombre Fauve (Parfumerie Générale) - I think it's my favorite of his creations, though now I have the chance to try many more!
Also, I stopped around the corner to the L'Artisan boutique and bought some of the new Fleur de Liane - it's going to be a great fragrance for the spring time and summer. It has a great balance of woods and vetiver and though it has a floral edge to it, so I think it could easily be worn by men or women.
I bought 100mL of Black Aoud and 200mL of Caron Pour un Homme off a fellow basenoter, can't wait for them to arrive!
Royal Aoud 100 ml

ST Dupont 100ml tester

A split on a vintage L'Heure Bleue (Parfum de Toilette) by Guerlain. This was a blind buy for me (I know, I know...) but I currently own the LHB Eau de Cologne and love it. I'm excited to test this tonight, to notice the differences. The EdT however was so yucky, whereas the parfum is wonderful.

I was at Gump's today in San Francisco looking for a Valentine's Day present for my sweetie (which I found and bought and had wrapped), and then I noticed that they had Floris JF in stock. Lucky thing, because my small bottle is almost gone. So I got a 100 ml. bottle for backup. Et voilà!
