    Today, at Barneys, I was sniffing different things. I came across Comme des Garçons 2 Silver Words, and I liked it, so I bought it.

    I bought another bottle of Ambre Gris by Balmain. Parfum1 with the 20% off got the better of me.

    Although I posted this on January's thread, it arrived today and I'm so excited I need to share:

    Guerlain Plus Que Jamais (now discontinued) - my first "Les Parisienne". Very exciting.

    ..I dunno, there's a thrill with the whole immediate gratification thing and all,
    but I kinda feel like a guilty bastard at the same time!

    Bloomingdales a couple of days ago:

    Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Cipresso di Toscana and Hanae Mori HM,

    with little decants of Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Mandorlo di Sicilia and two from Miller Harris, Feuilles de Tabac and Geranium Bourbon.

    Yesterday at Neiman Marcus:

    My new valentine, Guerlain Cologne Du 68

    with little decants of 3 more Guerlains - Bois D'Armenie, Sous Le Vent, and Spiritueuse Double Vanille and a couple of citrus Creeds - Citrus Biggade & Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse.

    Wonderful service from both stores.

    I had intended to head to Fresh today to check out the Valentines launch of their new Champagne scent, but spent all I had to spend on these...

    I've just picked up a bottle of Michael Kors for men for a snip on Ebay. Oddly, I sold a bottle I had of this last year because I didn't like it. But I have rediscovered a love of it.

    I've also just bought a bottle of Zegna Extreme for a bargain price on Ebay with the mirrored bottle.

    I have also just replaced my Opus 1870.

    I am currently committing to Elizabethan Rose which I have been wearing on and off as a sample.

    Also bought as full bottles in February are:

    Eaux des Baux
    Eau de Badian
    Feu Orange all by L'Occitane.

    This makes L'Occitane my second most purchased house after Penhaligon's and Guerlain.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    I've had a cold/flu for the past week so I haven't been able to smell anything

    but I did pick up some goodies. Nothing too interesting but I am looking forward to getting them.

    Montale - Soliel de Capri
    Creed - Santal Imperial

    Bulgari's Eau Parfumée au Thé Blanc

    I'm regretting it a little. While it was pretty nice at first, its now giving me a little headache when I wear it. There's a note there (I think its the white tea floral musk note) which is nice at a distance but is not so great up close.
