    Yesterday got in a vintage Habit Rouge in the red leather bottle... it is SOOOOOO yummy, like the new formulation in many ways but much deeper! And the lot of 3 Chanel No. 19 miniatures (I'm still awaiting the bigger FB for decant sample promises to folks... don't actually know if the 19 is vintage or new but it's EDP.

    And... sort of off topic but not really... The birthday gifting from my sweetheart (dear boy!) continued yesterday, this was my MOST special ever birthday (sweeties everywhere can probably take notes on this!)... on Friday afternoon I received 18 multicolored and fragrant roses...before my sweetie's arrival. Then yesterday he brought out the first book gift, Chandler Burr's The Perfect Scent. A dinner out after a day of gardening at a local coffeehouse/bistro; followed by a gift of "The Chemistry of Fragrances: From Perfumer to Consumer" and an hour later, "The art of perfumery and the methods of obtaining the odours of plants; with instructions for the manufacture of ... dentifrices, pomatums, cosmetiques, perfumed soap, etc... "by G.W. Septimus Piesse ... (a Uni of Michigan historic reprint)... and the last gift just before the evening ended, "Perfume: Joy, Obsession, Scandal, Sin" by Richard Stamelman... which has some GORGEOUS photos of perfume bottles and is subtitled "A Cultural History of Fragrance from 1750 to the Present"... So, for a weekend without scent, it was a weekend FULL of scent!

    Crazylibellule and the Poppies - Lemon Pie

    Recommended the line elsewhere today, and checking the price - sale! Counting it as an early self b'day present, I thought it would be nice for summer and I can't resist that slightly edwardian packaging design!

    Absolutely! Nothing like a boyfriend who revels in the sans-parfum scent of a woman! <grins>

    And today I received my Guerlain Vetiver all-over shampoo big honkin' tubes (I discovered that this stuff is wonderful for my baby fine hair and for my skin as well... and I can "cheat" a little using it as "no scent" shower soap when the honey's here... it leaves just the teensiest trace of scent, basically smells like really clean skin.)

    Also got a bunch of decant supplies in, and the neatest of all is the tiny sterling silver funnel that is perfect for decanting bottles with non-removable sprays. (my pocket Sycomore is at the ready now!)

    Today I took receipt of my 250ml Guerlain Metallica - sealed, in both boxes.
    I also got my 80's Guerlain Eau de Verveine EDT, which is already proving rather extraordinary!

    Arrived today, so fast, my teeny tiny little treats! These dinkies are 12ml each. The Frankincense & Myrhh is a simple mix of both EOs, Poppies is a dark deco chypre with honey and apples and the Oud is synthetic and, wonderfully, smells just like Teacher's whisky!

    Today I received my package from Italy..I orderd the small 15ml bottles at Il Profumo: Macadam, Nymphea, Songe de Tulipe and Vanille Bourbon.

    Last week I got my very big bottle (250 ml) of Guerlain Les Voyages Olfactifs - Paris-Moscow

    And the last day of the month I will be visiting Paris... will not be a good idea for my bank account

    I will definately buy an exclusive from Serge Lutens and I need Daphne from CdG! and Mon Parfum from Micallef is also high on my wish list...with several others

    I looked up the notes in that one lilybelle - it sounds pretty and tasty! It seems like it might be a grown-up lady's version of Pink Sugar, and the reviews are very good (not here on BN, of course )

    Thanks for the moral support, Evengeline. I think those notes seem pretty tasty, too. Sounds like my kind of thing.

    Today I blind bought Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose. I read about that fragrance that bees would chase you in the summertime! So I'll need to wear it any other time because I'll be wearing it. I like it a lot, it's a rose not for the faint of heart and definitely for those who don't think there's such a thing as too much rose. I scored a travel set of Estee Lauder miniatures as well.

    I'm seeing some favorites here: Dark Amber Ginger Lily, Kelly Caleche, Safari.

    And Dimitri, that Metallica bottle is so gorgeous! I completely understand that you would rather keep it with you rather than have it shipped ahead.

    I forgot to mention that I bought L'Occitane Peony the other day. It really is pretty as a peony. I must get around to planting one next year, as soon as I can make a place to put one.

    Mira is looking for a good Peony scent, so I will urge her to check out L'Occitane's peony

    And yes, I am a little terrified to let that bottle out of my sight - it will be wrapped carefully and travel in my check-in baggage. Horror of horrors!

    I have been enjoying Voyage d'Hermes but can't justify paying £53 for a 35ml that doesn't last very long so I bought a 30ml bottle of Eau de Merveilles instead.

    xposted to the mens frags too: Vintage Jacomo Anthracite EDT 100 ml just came in today and it's nice, good for the cool wet.

    Also got in the Chergui swap decant from boosh...

    Am still awaiting the last of the fruits of my 6-month-long FB buying flurry: Chanel No. 19 EDP, Guerlain Chant d'Aromes EDT, Montale Black Aoud (swap), and the Vivara concentree...

    I'm REALLY grounding myself now. If I can't find enough good-smelling stuff to wear in my wardrobe from now 'til October (or November) I need to have my head examined!

    I feel so mainstream after reading everyone's posts!

    Yesterday I bought the smaller (1.7 oz) bottle of the new Balenciaga. This is one where you don't really save by buying the larger bottle. Although there was a gift with a $130 purchase they let me have it anyway. It's a .25 mini of the fragrance and a little wallet/change purse. The Balenciaga rep told me that the top zippers on the wallets weren't working right. But they also gave me plenty of samples after I said I was considering buying online because of a gift with purchase offered there.
