    Today I was desperate for Tuberose and so I bought Diptyque Do Son. Then I bought that nifty set from Jo Malone that has six 9ml mini bottles of different scents in it and also a 30ml bottle of the Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Cologne. Lotsa sniffin to do....

    Thanks LipPrint and Haunani

    That Jo Malone set looks lovely, bloomy... love the presentation...

    This week bought Dune (gift set with edt and lotion) from ebay--

    Balmy Days and Sundays from Ineak (motivated to use my $25 credit from the sample set)--

    Iris Silver Mist 5 ml sample from TPC (lost my last little decant on a recent trip! Bummer! I really need a whole bottle of this, I LOVE IT SO)--

    AND... four bottles from parfum1.com, all unsniffed! Yes, utter insanity. I blame it on the root canal (the dentist kept saying "think of something else" so I did) AND, they are having an additional 15% off sale (code SALESALE5PQ) The bottles are: Kelly Caleche, Ma Griffe, Allegoria Pamplelune, Fleurs de Citronnier. (I think they are fairly safe bets... but we shall see!)

    Hi C Rose,
    I adore the packaging with the Jo Malone line! I was a complete Jo Malone Virgin until yesterday. I had a FAB time at the Nordstrom flagship store here in Seattle. Jo Malone has a fantastic set up there, like an entire boutique within the store. The SA's were awesome; so patient with me and generous with samples too. The packaging for the line is top notch; cream boxes and bags with black lettering, black tissue and black grosgrain ribbon....I pretty much wanted to buy one of everything.

    I can't believe that you blind bought four bottles , you are MUCH braver than me!

    Be sure to share your thoughts when you get a chance to sniff them all.

    Dior Homme Cologne, which is said to be quite different from DH and DHI. Can't wait.

    We have a new Jo Malone store just opened here. So I was at the opening, with champagne flowing. LOL The only samples they had were the Dark Amber & Gingerlily and Lotus Blossom and Waterlily. Actually thought I would buy the Dark Amber but it just did not seem full bottle worthy.

    I did buy Vanilla & Anise which I thought was slightly off the path of my usual fragrances. Not sweet vanilla, sort of woody and dry.
    I found myself strangely attracted to Blue Agava & Caco, which has a chocolate note narcotic like. So it was bought today along with Sweet Lime & Cedar. The latter on me becomes a dry cedar with perhaps the faintest hint of citrus. I know Jo Malone are very into the fragrance combining thing. So the idea of chocolate notes and dry cedar I think will be interesting.

    Oh the famous Pomegrate Noir on my skin turns into clove rock. Very medical.

    Decided to buy the new Bond No 9 High Line. The notes sound wonderful -
    Notes of: bergamot, purple love grass, Indian rhubarb, red leaf rose, tulip, grape hyacinth and bur oak.
    I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the new Vero Profumo EDP version of Rubj. Anybody hear news about the release dates yet?

    I love Dark Amber & Ginger Lily - the four Jo Malones I own are this, the Day one with Lotus Blossom and Water Lily, Vanilla & Anise, and Orange Blossom.

    Today I bought - thanks to Wordbird for the introduction! - Sonia Rykiel Women Not For Men on Ebay. And on the ferry home from France the other day I succumbed to Kenzo Flower Oriental which you cannot get in the UK anymore.

    Today I was browsing around a department store and discovered that their stock of Chanels is quite old and tatty -so I scored a bottle of Chanel Pour Monsieur that was made before they messed with it

    This weekend I've been rooting around on ebay and bought a little boxed gift set of Coriolan (just for my curiosity because I've read a lot about it on here - cost me 99p +post and packing ) and a 100ml bottle of Eau de Rochas (which I have a tiny bottle of and really like).

    My vintage Vol De Nuit, Shalimar and my Yohji Homme from our Diamondflame arrived today... as did a large bottle of Amazone (I loved the 25 ml so much I bought the 100 ml)... and some Dior samples from Le Grand Duc Poison, Hypnotic Poison and Midnight Poison arrived today... so it's a red-letter 'fume day for me!

    I should really desist from fume buying this month after my big splurge at the Guerlain store in Vegas last Wednesday but you only live once..... I got a bottle of Ralph Lauren Safari and a bottle of Clarins Par Amor at TJ Maxx tonight. Extremely different scents in character and both very wearable. When I first sniffed the Safari I got a giant note of PIMENTO or olive and i thought "Holy mackerel, i smell like a giant muffaletta" It toned down after about ten minutes, thankfully, and smoothed out into a beautiful scent. of course, pimento was not listed in the scent notes, so I could have just been hungry

    Good score on the Coriolan, pofox!

    Ah... forgot that yesterday I received three Chanel miniatures, vintage Chanel No. 19, a teensy cute bottle of No. 5 Parfum, and a tiny mini Cristalle. Neat!

    (so much for my self-imposed perfume-buying grounding. I have even more goodies on their way. Sigh. But I love it!)

    you guys on a Chanel kick- I understand . Chanel No.5 parfum has just blown me away ...again ...after all these years.

    My DH bought me Vero Profumo Rubj - 15 mls extrait- the only bottle they had at Luckyscent was the 'big' one - so excuses excuses, poor DH shelled out for it. *GRIN*

    Sorry -really bad pic.

    I also bought 2 bottles of Vol de Nuit extrait ,2 bottles of La Prairie Cellular Body Spray and a 7.5 ml bottle of Chanel No.5 parfum to add to my other bottle of No.5 parfum.

    As part of my NYC trip I surprised myself...I was poised to fulfill my Penhaligon's needs but alas...no Penhaligon's to tempt me...loved them but just couldn't commit. Holding out for Orange Blossom Anthology release. I returned with Chanel Beige and three from Memoire Liquide: Nymphea, Vetiver & The' Blanc, and Rose Tendre
