    I almost bid on that bottle of Aomassai on eBay yesterday, but I still have plenty here. (Look at me, the model of restraint... ha!) But then I took advantage of BeautyHabit's 20% discount & bought Parfums de Nicolaï Fig Tea.

    I bought the A-Z paperback even though I have the original hardback AND paid for all of the newsletters in-between. Books & perfumes = a winning combination for me, I'm 'fraid

    No juice purchases because I am determined to wait until I feel I can justify forking out for Promesse de l'aube, which I fell for badly when I sampled it from luckyscent.

    Friday night marked the end of another bizarre week at work...so I took a deep breath and decided that I might shake off the stress a little better with 'fumes that bring a smile to my face.

    Used the 20% off coupon for BH and bought the small bottles of Odalisque and Sacrebleu, plus a few Nesti Dante bar soaps. I requested some samples, too.

    Can't wait to get them!

    After my recent sad purchase of Odalisque from Luckyscent, I went online and ordered all of the classics. The change in the perfume industry that is coming in 2010 is REAL and already is here! I should have been suspicious when Odalisque disappeared (on backorder) and then reappeared in a larger size bottle. The stuff that I received is NOTHING like the Odalisque that I knew & cherished. I am so sorry that I have praised the juice, because the new stuff is boring leather and not much else.

    OH NO! Sigh. I just ordered the Odalisque from BH. I had a sample I purchased a few months ago (might have been more than "a few months") & loved it. Shucks...

    That's so disappointing! I ordered a sample months ago from Luckyscent and quickly fell in love. I recently ordered the 100 ml bottle from The Perfume Shoppe (she doesn't have the 30 ml in stock anymore) and it smells just as delicious as the sample. Not sure how much stock they have left but my bottle is good so maybe that's an option.

    Wow - soirdelune - that is incredible...and enviable! Congratulations!

    Are you already familiar with all/most of the fragrances? I've never tried a single one, but I love Patou - Joy, 1000, Sublime and Sira des Indes are all favorites. The utter charm of all those precious bottles is just too much, and the case alone is fantastic!

    You must be over the moon!

    (But why "oops"? Was it supposed to be a surprise for yourself?)

    Sonoma Scent Studio: Cameo, Femme Jolie, Jour Ensoleille, all small bottles. The Cameo is new, and I have been coveting the last two for ages BTW, the Femme Jolie may be on the site for a short time, so now's the time to get!

    Also: Ajne, 2 sample sets:

    Calypso
    OM -2 (I am nearly positive this will be my fav, from all descriptions)
    Printemps
    Adler
    Palena'ole - the scent of Maui

    I've hesitated to get the Ajne samples for months, b/c of the Pandora's box potential for me. Finally could not resist any further!!!

    So far I've just ordered minis of Tuscan Leather, Velvet Gardenia and Champaca Absolute, so hopefully they'll be here in a few days, but I've got a few samples to keep me busy until then.

    I've tried Que Sais-Je? and it is wonderful.I also have bottles of Adieu Sagesse, L'Heure Attendue and Colony, but I want to smell the minis before I bust open the packaging. Am quite certain I am going to love Chaldee ... can't wait for them to arrive.

    And I say OOPS! just for the sake of my bank balance!

    I know what you mean - it's so hard to spoil those pristine coffrets! I have a few that I bought in duplicate just so I could keep one in mint condition...which is crazy because I really have no intention of selling them.

    I see the Ma minis every now and then and I'm always tempted to try them, but I can't ever decide on just one or two at a time so I end up with none. Paralyzed with indecision. The whole shebang is the way to go!

    So...tonight I got home to find my BH order waiting for me.

    I ordered PdN Sacrebleu and Odalisque in the small bottles...and as some of you may have seen...I was worried that the latter would be the reformulation. But...

    I think it's ok?

    I am a bit confused & not 100% certain, though. The label on the front of the bottle (and even on the front of the box) is different from the boxes of the Sacrebleu and even the Cococabana (bought last year as a blind buy). But I think the juice is not too different (if at all) from the sample I had...

    One thing to note is that BH has had the 30 mL size in-stock for quite a while, whereas the larger size has been OOS for a while now (at least 2 months, I think).

    So, maybe a precious few bottles (pre-reformulation) are still left in the small size at BH? (not affiliated!)

    Edited on 16Nov2009 - well, I guess it was just wishful thinking. I tried the Odalisque a couple more times since my optimistic post here...and sadly, there's "more" floral upon the drydown (if there's such a thing) and less depth in the base. What used to make Odalisque so special seems to be gone? Wah.

    Murmure by Van Cleef & Arpels. Very nice and I'm sure brilliant in the warmer season.

    It was almost free off www.strawberrynet.com which is my primary source of more main stream perfumes. They do have a nice selection of, amongst others, Annick Goutal, Lutens and Bond No 9 too though.
