Monsieur Worth.....one of my rare forays onto E-bay
For a variety of reasons, today I ordered:
Zino Davidoff because it is said to be out of production and is fairly highly regarded. Still easily available online.
Baldessarini because it is said to be the best of the Hugo's, and
Jean Marie Farina by Roger & Gallet because it is said to represent the origins of the EdC genre
All three for under a hundred - and all worthy additions to any wardrobe, I think.
Chanel No 5 Eau Premiere - I seem to be on a Chanel kick lately
Top notes: Ylang-Ylang, Aldehydes, Neroli
Middle notes: Jasmine, Rose
Base notes: Vetiver from Reunion, Vanilla

And all the reviews were great on other sites. This is a blind buy.
Then I bought Cumming off of Ebay (I hope it is Authentic)
Well, I'd made a pledge to myself not to buy anything for an entire week. Today's day #2 and, after reading about all of you all's wonderful purchases, I think I'm going to head over to the Barney's website and splurge on some Malle's. Hey, I made it almost 48 hours! Progress not perfection, right?

Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.
— Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus
Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
Male irato ferrum committitur.
It is an evil thing to arm an angry man.
Today my über rare 15ml "Habit Rouge Seduction Spray" arrived!
1.0yr (current formulation) BN Plus
I have waited a while for this one so mostly pleased to have gotten my hands on it at last. Two noses behind this classic, though their names elude me at the moment.
Haven't had a chance take it out of the box yet--lovely design and color scheme--but will test it later tonight or tomorrow morning.
Oh, and can anyone compare to the vintage version? Thanks.
