    Picked up a bottle of My Insolence. This seems to be a love or hate scent. Well it smell great on me! I think it must work with your skin or not.

    It reminds me of Flowerbomb, with tart raspberry on top.

    It is lovely to be awaiting packages, isn't it? I am awaiting a package from Ava Luxe, containing Sweet Patchouli and Frangipani.

    I am also awaiting a package from a BNer containing 1/2 bottle of Jicky in extrait. Too exciting!

    The funny thing is that I am regarding this as a year of perfume restraint. Yet I feel that I must get Fire Island. I look at the bottles on ebay and just can't believe that that suspicion is worth the savings.

    How do you tell when to buy and when to suspect on ebay?

    Wow - It looks like we should rename this thread "June 2009 ~ Ava Luxe Purchases"...

    I've only tried 2 so far - enjoyed one, hated one - look forward to trying more.

    Anyway, today I bought:



    Miller et Bertaux Green, Green, Green And... Green.

    I was expecting a harsh pine forest with vetiver and spices and mint and just about anything green, but it turns out to be a very understated tea-esque bay leaf with some citrus and peppery resins. Quite beautiful, actually....

    From manicboy's sale thread, I received today his pre-loved 1oz bottle of Jo Malone Dark Amber & Ginger Lily. I've been lusting after this for too long and had been trying to make my sample last. Now I don't have to!

    On Saturday I went to a small privately owned perfume shop where they have the most unusual stuff.

    I bought Tommy Hilfiger - Tommy for my SO.

    The star buy though was Christian Dior - Dune extrait 50ml spray for ± $72

    bought some Floris Gardenia - Gardenia sounds so exotic but this is horrid on me! So heavy I can almost chew it .... yuck!
    and some Lacroix Bazaar Femme, which is very light and pretty on me, but then I bought it for my mum to use when she comes to visit (she likes things sweeter than I do - she won't take perfume travelling much since the time the shampoo she'd packed in her shoe leaked).

    I'm a baaaaad girl.

    I was going to wait to buy the 1 remaining Chanel that I've wanted, but found out the free shipping ends on 06-21. So, I sucked it up and ordered 31 RC. Now, if only Chanel would consider bottling 100ml sizes! I know I'll use the bigger sizes of No22, Bois des Iles, Cuir de Russie and 31 RC, but there is no way in hades that I would buy the larger size of any of the others. I would LOVE to get a smaller one of Bel Respiro, but that won't happen unless Chanel cooperates with me.

    I can't believe that I am posting again to this question! I heard that Tiffany's was dropping Tiffany for women (they're not), so I bought a big bottle. And I can't get Mandragore EDP out of my mind (I tried it on a shopping trip with my daughter), so I bought that along with the lotion & bath gel. Plus, Yves Rocher is having a sale on their website, so I bought Iris Noir for 50% off. I'm proud that I passed up the Voile d'Ambre because I really want to try that. I need to stop now. The good folks at Basenotes made me do it! So much perfume...so little time (and money).

    I forgot to mention:

    If anyone orders from Chanel, not only do they have the free shipping right now, but they give very generous 4ml samples (3 or 4) that are cute reproductions of the Exclusif's collection.
    Just so you know! The worth of the samples help take the edge off the sticker shock a bit.

They are also sending me 7- 2ml samples and 3 mystery gifts, usually towels or other lovely embroidered things. I probably should have ordered another bottle of Emilie, maybe later, I do love Emilie.

    Today my grandma got me 4711 Kölnisch Wasser - she's the sweetest. I think she got the idea from me having mentioned a vintage 4711 ad mural in the Frans Halsstraat, A'dam. It says: formerly a 4711eau de cologne factory. A friend of mine lives close by, and I happened upon it one day. Cute, no?
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    This month is decants and samples, and I've violated my monthly limit already. Though I skipped last month's allowance. I think. So that's OK, right?

    Decants:
    Lorenzo Villoresi Yerbamate
    Hermessence Osmanthe Yunnan
    Parfumerie Generale L'Eau Rare Matale
    All three of these are second decants, the last prerequisite before I allow myself to consider a full bottle. Hmmmmm. (Wait. They're all teas, too, aren't they? Dang. That violates a different rule...)

    Samples:
    Parfums de Rosine Ecume de Rose

    I've been really conscious of my spending this month and actually sold 3 bottles -- and only bought a few samples. I also procrastinated sufficiently enough so missed a few sales (whew, that was a close call!)

    So I went ahead and purchased some decanting supplies.

    Although I've just gone in on a split of Shalimar parfum, so no, it won't be a month with no bottles.

    Bought L' Artisan Tubéreuse. Not the most interesting tuberose scent I have but if you don't want it too strong and a little fresher it works pretty well.

    And I bought jasmine oil ( 5% pure jasmine oil rest was other oil) ylang ylang oil and rosewood oil. Fun to see if I can make a nice mix otherwise the jasmine can go on me without anything else.

    This month I have been SOOOOOOO bad!
    In my defence, I have sold a few bottles and I'm swapping a couple for a backup bottle of Bulgari Black, which I can't live without.
    But it's sale times and oh my, I can't resist. So today I bought 30mls Prada Tendre for 30CHF, so that was a bargain, no?
    And I am now the proud owner of pre-loved bottles of Louve, Cuir Amethyste and Premier Figuier, each of which I love. Plus a couple of minis fell into my hands while I was in the UK - Burberry The Beat edp (very nice!) Prada original (hmm, hence me snapping up the discontinued Tendre today) and some Burberry men's minis.

    A Guerlain said to be not in keeping with the house's vaunted reputation: Champs Elysees.

    This is nothing I'd have worn in dismal, rainy climates, but in the swamp it blooms. And it makes me wonder about the perception of reputation relative to the fits and starts of trying to keep au courant. CE doesn't measure up to Jicky or to Vol de Nuit as an intellectual (or even romantic) exercise, but does it need to? This type of expectation only leads to disappointment, as happens with a band that uses its next album to experimentally (and cautiously) address the modern marketplace and fails miserably because the sound is less than organic, less rooted in deprivation.

    Twenty years down the line, however, you realize that certain elements were quite good, taken out of context. Not a masterpiece, not by a long shot, but fully as addressing the generalized rules of the era as anything else. CE can therefore be compared not with its family of origin but with Jontue or any other drugstore-type floral of that decade (or trend). CE borders the blowsy but is saved by a soapishness that doesn't add lather but cleanliness.

    One of the easier-to-wear almond (blossom) scents, IMO. No toothpaste note.

    Purchased a nearly full Jour de Fete bottle, hope it arrives safe and sound.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    Oh wow, congratulations on those birthday presents, Libertine! Fabulous!!!! I am particularly envious of that vintage Vol de Nuit extrait. Someone loves you a LOT!

    When I was in New York, I swore I was only going to spend $50 on fragrances (a gift from the in-laws). Yeah, right.

    On the other hand, it could have been worse, with all the temptations in front of me.

    I bought:

    - Estee Lauder's Private Collection Jasmine & White Moss after one sniff. It's absolutely beautiful.

    - the small roll-on version of AG Matin d'Orage.

    - a small bottle of a Memoire Liquide I "mixed" myself (with the help of RHM). It has white flowers and bergamot tea notes and is yet to be named.

    Looks like I will be adding to my sales thread to try and make up for some of the overage.
    For sale: JL Scherrer parfum (reduced price) and more!

    Lucky libertine! A very happy birthday to you.

    Late Friday I returned from Paris. I didn't get to follow all of my intended perfume agenda, as I was accompanied by two lovely friends, each with different plans, and we all wanted to experience the city together. Good thing, though, because I may have spent all my food & other fun money on fragrance! Or, I would have visited SL multiple times more and gone home with 8 bell jars instead of 3! Serge Lutens was my favorite perfume shopping of all. Anyway, I managed to come home with a variety of things:

    At Serge Lutens - Cuir Mauresque, Encens et Lavande, and Borneo 1834, plus (!) a gift freebie refillable travel atomizer of Ambre Sultan
    At Galleries Lafayette - Givenchy Vetyver and Eau de Givenchy
    At Parfums de Nicolai - Le Temps d'Une Fete and Sacrebleu
    At the Airport Duty-Free - Guerlain Vol de Nuit Evasion

    I know I can buy a few of these here, but I was it was hard to organize my thoughts and sightseeing/shopping agendas, so I purchased 'in the moment.' And Paris will still be there if I want to go back, right?
