    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.

    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!

    I fell out of love with Cuiron, so I sold all my stock. I liked it but did not love it anymore and it had some scent association from my past that needed to be put to rest. To keep one leather/suede frag in my huge wardrobe of 10 bottles, I finally jumped for a 100 ml bottle of Cuir Ottoman. I have almost pulled the trigger on this one for over a year now and it feels good to finally know that it is coming home to daddy. It has a slightly sweet drydown that I have found I prefer more than a dry, austere take on suede/leather.

    Me so happy!

    In a small specialty perfume shop, I was smelling some lighter fragrances, and I settled on Tokyo by Kenzo. It's not my usual style, and is probably made for people much younger than I am, but it appealed to me, so I popped for it.

    Got an absurd deal on a lot of vintage Dior Jules minis... this is something I've wanted a FB of for a while, but the prices are very high (especially for an 80s power fragrance I'll rarely wear). However, the minis were so inexpensive I essentially got 50ml worth of Jules for @ $30!
