    Default Today I bought..( May 2009 purchases)

    Hello gang

    Well I couldn't help myself, scared by stories of reformulations and a creditcard I bought

    A La Nuit - I fear this one might be reformulated in 2010 so I plan to stockpile this as it is my all favourite jasmine scent. I am halfway through my own bottle and even before the idea of a possible reformulation I stopped using it because it was going so fast. Now I hope I can use it again with happy abandon.

    Sira des Indes - the website says this is being discontinued and they have a few left so I got it for 25 pounds, 50 ml. I actually did sample it, by chance it was given as an extra by a mua'er and my bf loved it and I thought it was charming too. Seeing it for 25 pounds seals the deal for me.

    1000 Patou - I heard this one is being discontinued or reforumulated soon a while ago. I tried it at roja dove's haute perfumery and was taken in by it and it was my second choice but I didnt want to spluge to much ( i still had 3 more perfume shops to go too then) and now I was diddering between joy and this one. The fact that joy was out of stock and this one was not and again rumours of horror made me go for this.

    I think the reform/discontinue threat is definitly affecting me. Also the website where I bought it from is temptation incarnate with their sales and freebies. I'll let you know if it was a pleasant experience dealing with them or not when the order arrives, but their communication so far was great.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    I have already secured a bottle of 1000 parfum from Neiman's. And I don't have a bottle of A La Nuit, but I'm thinking I should have one, so that's looming in the future.

    Today, my bottle of Mazzolari Vetiver arrived from LuckyScent. I hesitated bcs it seemed a bit masculine on the dri-down, but I'm wearing it now and it is a lush chypre-esque clone of AdP Profumo, only even more to the point, I guess you could say. Less light, a bit greener. I'm glad I did it, finally!

    Creative Universe / Beth Terry - Element of Attraction

    This was a funny one... when I tried it in the sample the first time, I was taken with it but not in love. However I kept finding myself coming back to it - I want to wear it even though I don't adore it!

    I objectively prefer the difficult scents from Comme or L'Artisan, yet this is the one I buy because it is so wearable. Interesting.

    Snagged a vintage bottle of Capricci parfum at a discount cosmetics outlet for the princely sum of $4.99. It was still sealed in the signature Nina Ricci pretty wrapping paper (I'm assuming from the '60s or '70s) which was a bit of a shame to have to tear to open (I wish perfumes still came wrapped like that, it really enhances the whole gift to yourself feeling). The contents have evaporated slightly over the years though but the juice itself is still wonderful, I'm getting beautiful rose and slightly indolic jasmine. At that price I'm thinking I have to go back, find the fullest sounding bottles and get some backups.

    As an early Mother's Day gift, my husband kindly bought me the new EdP at Victoria's Secret that I tested yesterday-- Lace Orange Flower.

    In addition to being a very pleasant stand-alone fragrance, I think this one has nice layering potential.
    I also tested the body mist today (the SA opened one for the purpose) and I found it to last about 2 hours on my wrist.

    Good for you!!!

    I am a little distressed that I could not find Chanel 19 at my neighborhood Macy's and it is not available at the Chanel website. I have a mini and I am starting to get worried about not finding it anymore

    A lot of the places that list it online are out of stock. Fragrancenet.com is a good bet.

    arwen_elf, within the last couple of weeks, somebody in the south bay told me they still have it--it was either Nordstroms at the Galleria mall in Redondo Beach or Macy's in Manhattan Village. It was the Chanel counter, not the main fragrance area which also has Chanel.

    I dithered about Tuberosa by Profumum for several months but finally ordered it this morning, can't wait for it to arrive now.

    Also ordered a backup of Madison Soiree, which is not easily available in the UK.

    Received a pre-loved bottle of Angelique Noire.

    Fragonard wants a fax of my ID before they'll process my purchase, which makes me feel contrary!

    I just received six little minis, all things that I've wanted to try. They are so CUTE that I can see why people collect them! They are Eau de Lalique, Y by YSL, Etro Shaal Nur, Soir de Lune by Sisley, Voile d'Ambre by Yves Rocher, and Belle en Rykiel.

    Will I love them, I wonder???

    My daughter says she is sending me "a surprise" in the mail to "add to my hobby". Should be interesting.
    Not really a purchase, but a gift.

    Was also down in London on Friday on a sniffing mission with a member from NST, but sadly did not bump into Nukapai and Odysseum, as we divided our day between Les Senteurs, Chanel, Hermes and Harvey Nichols. I was in Liberty's yesterday though!

    My friend bought travel packs of FM Lipstick Rose at Les Senteurs and I succumbed to a bottle of Parfum d'Empire Osmanthus Interdite. Got 6 free samples each, as you do!

    Came home last night to a bottle of Voile d'Ambre from Ebay - at £12.50 for 50ml, it is another bargain that helps bring my average purchase price for FBs back to £15, where it was in the first quarter of this year!

    Received a mini of Ange ou Demon today, which I'd bought blind on Trademe (New Zealand version of Ebay). Its different to the types of perfumes I usually go for and I'm still deciding whether I love it or not. The longer its on my skin, the more I'm liking it though...

    Also made my first purchases from the Perfumed Court and avidly looking forward to their arrival:
    Lolita Lempicka
    Narcisso Rodrigues for Her EDP
    Cristalle EDT
    Fidji EDT

    Major purchasing lately with some extra stash money:
    I ordered from the Chanel website: No22 and Cuir de Russie. With no Chanel boutiques anywhere close to home, I am hoping like blazes that Chanel releases more Exclusifs to the website eventually. I would be one happy camper to see Bois de Iles and 31 RC listed one day.
    Also purchased and fell in love with Idole, and BU's of Y, Y parfum, Mitsouko. Thinking about getting Acqua di Parma Profumo, 1000 parfum. Geez.
