    I got Caron Farnesiana extrait during my NYC trip. I spent way too much time at the Bendels Memoire Liquide counter (@100 different fragrances in extrait meant for layering/combining) but didn't end up buying anything.

    went to l'occitane with plans to only buy the hair mask (love the aromachologie scent)

    came out with the myrte/myrtle kit. i never thought i'd buy any fragrances from l'occitane because i was always under the impression that they weren't lasting enough but i really liked the myrtle scent when it was tried on my skin. i don't have anything that smells like this. Initially went for a bee-line for the neroli but it was too warm and didn't stand out.



    I like it but i'm not getting it the way the description on the website describes it.

    "The wind rose guides sailors through the Mediterranean, where the lands announce their presence through a unique aromatic signature. L'OCCITANE pays homage to the beautiful natural treasures of the Mediterranean and invites you on a journey with the Notre Flore purse accessory."

    not impressed by the round case though. it's plastic and looks quite tacky because of that.
    oh also saw a new fragrance on the website. The Bergamot! i like tea and i love the scent of bergamot.

    Well I am floored and I am humbled because my DH took it upon himself to order me Jicky extrait from Bergdorf that I have been wanting so much.

    Lucky Lessa! I constantly visit the Chanel site and keep hoping for smaller bottles of the new line. I purchased Paloma Picasso at TJ Maxx, so now I can give it a good try to see if I like it as much as I think I do! And for the first time, I purchased Habanita. I hope that I like it as much as almost everyone on this web site does. I am won over by the fact that it comes in lotion & shower gel.

    Just placed an order for some Possets scents, including Scented Gloves and Goodness. Looking forward to trying them.

    A few days ago I purchased some "make your own perfume" samples from Parfums Raffy. I am sure my efforts will be clumsy, but the experiment will be fun and not too costly.

    I bought Cristalle edt yesterday. It's like being reaquainted with an old friend. I owned this once before, about twenty years ago.

    Hi all!

    Gump's in SF got in a new line a little while back and I was sniffing my way through it. It's called Oritigia.

    It's very Sicilian. I fell for the over-the-top bottles with the cute cheetah things and ended up buying the Lime Di Sicilia because it had better depth and longetivity than the Trumper Lime I was originally going to pick up.

    It's quite bright and has some neroli to keep the brightness going. I also got some grass and mint. Full report later...



    I also got samples of the new Dr. Vranjes Extrait line. Their house note seems to be mint, so all their scents, for better or worse had a bright summery minty blast on the top, whether called-for or not. And none of them smelled at all like what they're called either. Blind buying definitely discouraged - I got samples of Vetiver Poivre, Gigember Estragone, and Bergamotto Mirto.

    Happy shopping, everyone!

    Mure et Musc Extreme in the limited ed. bottle since L'Artisan currently has free shipping. I love the bottle. It looks like the harvest bottles. It is so pretty.

    Wow! Enjoy! Report back please.

    I went to Bath & Body Works today. They had a 75% off sale, so I bought some Pink Grapefruit stuff, which is why I went there, as well as some Coconut Lime Verbena stuff, and a bottle of Bigelow's Rose Water, which I think I'll keep in the fridge for those hot, hot days (like today!).

    I bought a part bottle of Chanel Egoiste EDT, I saw it mentioned as being quite sweet and spicy with wood and vanilla in the dry down so I thought I'd give it a try.

    Gucci Flora (yes, that new sneakily gourmand one--has passed multiple tests without souring, funking, sweating, stinking--therefore, a winner)
    --not a frag, but I have to mention Clarins Delicious Self-Tanner, so easily added to the Saks Bag. This is the best self-tanner I have used.

    Received the Ajne samples of Fleur Blanche, Bloom de Nuit and Passion. So far, I have just tried Fleur Blanche. Very nice rendition of gardenia so far .
    Their sample kit is very very cute- those teeny bottles are so cute !

    The Chanel boutique in NYC had No. 19 parfum in stock. I've been wanting to try this for years. I couldn't resist, I bought it.

    Wow, they had No.19 parfum? Was it a purse spray or a splash bottle?

    Yes, I was very surprised! It's not even listed on the Chanel website. It is a 0.5oz (15ml) splash bottle, $160. The nice SA said they got some in because there was a demand for it. It wasn't out on display though. I just asked if they had the parfum for the heck of it and they had it! If anyone is interested, it's the Chanel boutique on 57th Street (212)355-5050.

    I bought Ava Luxe's LTBL as a blind buy but I'm 99% sure I'm going to love it. I can't wait! (I don't think there are enough exclamation points in the English language to fully convey the "squeeeeeee" factor)

    I'm also waiting on a good variety of perfume oil samplers from Theme, as they seem to have much better staying power on me in the hot, humid Souther summers. I ordered Sarong, Sarong Noir, Bikini and Frolic. I think.
