    Default Today I Bought (February '09)

    Cologne A La Russe by Institut Tres Bien



    Full review to come in the Spring - when I am going to break this out and give it a full wearing. It's rare that an eaux cologne gets me excited, but I loved this when Ruggles sent me a sample of it. Highly recommended. I got my bottle deeply discounted online.

    So I made it through January without buying anything.... So I celebrated by buying a bottle of bottle of Tabarome Millesime (from a fellow BN'r).

    DAMM YOU Basenotes Marketplace and your killer deals! LOL


    MikeP:I havent tried that one yet. I have only tried Cologne A La Francaise which was ok, I still have a small sample around here somewhere. But I remember thinking that the line was worth checking out. I will keep an eye out for your review ( which I always enjoy immensely).

    Just a 5ml miniature EDT of Joop! Homme.

    I haven't had this for years so really nice to own it again. Hugely (though certainly not unanimously) unpopular here on Basenotes, I always liked it very much.

    4 bottles of Yohji Homme 50ml tester

    I have been looking around for this precious juice for ages and finally, when I am not really looking, I found 4 tester bottles staring back at me. I grabbed them all. Ah.. happiness.

    Well.. I bit the bullet and purchased Creed Himalaya (4 oz.) and Royal Water (flacon) from fellow BN members.

    I also just ordered GIT and SMW from fragrancenet.com with the 15% off coupon. I'm getting a little bit nervous about this recent flareup in my fragrance addiction, but I've always been able to somehow justify it.

    Lots to look forward to in the mail in the next few weeks!

    Fumidus by Profumum (from a bottle split)



    I've been patiently waiting to have this in my wardrobe for about a year-and-a-half now. There is nothing like this, in my wardrobe. Although it does have its limits on when you can wear something this...boozy and tough-as-nails. When I wear it, I feel like getting into a fight and punching someone. Grrr...

    I love it.

    Green Irish Tweed 4oz
    Montana Red 4.2oz
    (3) 30ml bottles of R de Capucci (couldn't seem to locate any bottle bigger than 1 oz. at US sites)

    Time to give it a rest, I think....

    Eau de Patou, 1 oz bottle of the latest bottle design. I compared it to my older bottle and the difference is very subtle in the opening.

    I also noticed that the box of my older bottle includes list of notes: honeysuckle, nasturtium (?? never heard of this) ylang-ylang, petitgrain from Paraguay, Sicilian lemons and Guinean oranges.

    To arrive early next week: the now discontinued Guerlain Plus Que Jamais. Had it not been discontinued I may have waited a little while, but it's as gorgeous as any Guerlain and I'm glad to have it. Plus, I'd be pissed if I went to buy it in a couple months and it was gone. It's not like bottles are popping up on eBay.

    Plus, in a trade with a BNer I'm getting the also now-discontinued Floris Vetiver, which has been sitting on my 'want to buy' list for months.

    coming soon! Pics of my Quand Vient la Pluie received for my birthday. It's very impressive looking, with the biggest display case I've ever seen.... it's the size of a large briefcase, lacquered and velvet lined, with 'Guerlain' embossed in gold leaf. The bottle's 'pedestal sculpture' must weigh 10 pounds if not more, and even the glass funnel has a gold Guerlain logo on it. It's then hand numbered (101/140) and signed by the artist.... best birthday present ever.

    A replacement bottle of Chanel Pour Monsieur; my old one is getting very near the end, and it's getting harder and harder to find this in the U. S.

    I'm so glad I received gift certificates for my birthday... one of which I just used to pick up:

    Guerlain Terracotta Voile d'Ete

    This is sort of a blind buy, but sort of not. According to Mr.Guerlain, Terracotta (which was discontinued) became what is now Quand Vient l'Ete in the Les Parisiennes line. I was glad to find this out, especially when i was seriously thinking about spending a good piece of change on the QVLE (which I have sampled). The Terracotta is at many retailers for under $30. The French have an ironic sense of humor.
