    Received: Eau Fraiche de Christian Dior 220ml vintage. An overlooked classic, the citrus just radiates. Longevity is meh, bit with 7+ oz I can apply liberally. Weird that Dior still makes it but doesn't promote it.

    Went to Marshall's and bought Tommy Bahama and Les Nuits d'Hadrien.

    I'd just gotten a full 15ml of Aelopile from a friend who doesn't like citrus-heavy scents, but LNdH seems a more office-friendly scent.

    So this is odd - an ebay seller listed 100ml pre-exclusifs bottles of Cuir de Russie and Bois des Iles for abnormally low BIN prices. I've wanted both for a long time, but in the 20 minutes I took to think about it the CdR was purchased so I grabbed the BdI.

    Has anyone ever heard of a 100ml splash bottle for Bois des Iles? That's what the listing says. Maybe it's a tester? Misprint? Guess I'll find out soon enough.

    I think you are in a lot of luck mate...those pics surely look like those of 200ml bottles and I am quite sure you'd get a 200ml bottle instead of the advertised 100ml bottle...

    I bought MINI's!

    Two old long-gone pre-basenotes favorites of mine that I'm dying to try again now that I know more:

    Bulgari Aqua Pour Homme & Dunhill Desire For A Man.

    I also picked up, based entirely on cheapness and basenotes chatter, Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte & Caron Pour Un Homme.

    I also got a couple of mini-candles: Les Parfums de Rosine Rose d'Ete de Rosine & L'Artisan Parfumeur Invitation Creole.

    Plus samples of L'Artisan Parfumuer L'Ete En Douce & Fleur de Liane, and Frederic Malle Geranium Pour Monsieur.

    I forgot to past that I snagged a vintage, used bottle of Joy parfum by Jean Patou. Not sure if I can wear this one outside of my house, it's explosively strong. Maybe a dab, but that'd be more than enough.

    Temptation was too great and so from Xmen I opened up my heart and my paypal for:

    Eau de Patou (feminine)
    Eau de Patou (masculine)
    Maxims PH

    And in the excitement of buying a few discontinued gems, I decided the wait would be too long for the above three, as they would be shipping from across seas, and simply had to quench my thirst a bit sooner. So I killed another three birds in one foul swoop and once again decided its better to be poor than to be without:

    Jaipur Edp
    Mugler Cologne
    Encre Noir

    I need a cheaper hobby......

    I just bought 125 ml of Eau Noire. I had to order it from an out of town Dior boutique because they ran out of 125 ml. If you like Eau Noire and want a bottle, you should probably buy one as soon as you can. The SA said that as far as she knows, there won't be any more bottles produced or shipped to Canada. As for Europe (and maybe the U.S.), I imagine the situation might be a bit better.

    PS. This is probably the last bottle I buy until the fall - it's a whopping 150$ CAN. Hurts my empty student wallet!

    I was surprised the 30 ml bottle exists too. If you take a look at the range on the Bulgari website they have the 30 ml upright bottle listed though, so I'm sure it's legit (also smells right). I actually like this bottle better than the bubble, as it stands on its own instead of laying flat.

    No doubt it's legit - I was just urprised I hadn't seen it before. I'm so used to the other bottle where, for reasons that escape me, I've now several times managed to spray it backwards into the fingers doing the spraying!

    Caron Farnesiana extrait

    I also sampled the JAR parfums... nice but $400-600/30ml is.....
