    I cannot believe the total in TPC for the samples I have just ordered!!! Almost every thing there was something I wanted to try, so I guess that can justify it... but I will try not to repeat that again, so I am repeating your grounding mantra, actiasluna, and will slap my hand when it moves the mouse in the wrong direction.

    This is why I need to stop: (this photo shows six months'-worth of purchases, not including the Amazone and Guerlain Vetiver "backups" and what has yet to arrive.)

    ...a bottle of ELPC's Tuberose Gardenia at a local Neiman-Marcus. I was reminded of why I almost never buy perfume retail. It's because of the SA's, who were on me like flies on um, honey. Not just perfume sellers, either. A whole mob of free-roving "floaters," with the apparent carte-blanche to try to sell me anything -- any brand of fragrance, skin-care products, all kinds of personal care products, chasing me around the perfume department until I finally fled the store. I didn't look particularly affluent. I was in there with a couple of friends last winter and didn't get this mob scene. What on earth is going on! Are the luxury companies this desperate?

    I will not darken that particular door again. Back to online purchasing for me.

    Ha ! I totally understand what you are saying. There is nothing I dislike more than being trailed by SAs - no matter how nice they are . Some are very nice - but I feel like I have been thrown in a river with pirahnas - and I like my privacy and peace in stores.

    I am flattered I bought a decant a while ago, and I was too mean to use enough of it to get the glorious cloud of all that is unholy. Tonight I think I'll douse myself in En Avion extrait from a little vial I have. I sniffed my bottle of Jicky earlier today and my heart gave a little flutter, so I don't feel I am being unfaithful. Still, I am hiding the sledgehammer...

    More Poison (cuz the two bottles I already had just wasn't enough)


    Diorella 50ml, which reminds me a lot of the Chanel Cristalle that I already own, but I wanted it anyways.

    and a gift set of Hypnotic Poison 50ml with body lotion and makeup bag.

    all this and I still do not think that I am done with the house of Dior....

    Heehee... My scent cabinet looks kind of like an unmade bed... I need to redo the silly contact paper that the former owners put in and rearrange the shelves so I can reach a scent without knocking another over! (and there's a bottle of Chanel No. 19 that arrived today that isn't in the piccie.)

    I think my bottles come alive and get up to mischief when I leave the room. I feel like the kid in Toy Story whose toys feel threatened when Buzz Lightyear arrives. To Infini and beyond!!!!!!!


    BTW I'm afraid En Avion is smelling rather good... Debtor's prison, here we come

    Today a purchase from a basenoter arrived, vintages all... Caron Yatagan, Carven Vetiver, and Hermes Equipage... along with the 1967 vintage Vivara perfume concentre by Pucci.

    Another lovely-smelling day, and only (I think!) one more bottle to arrive... Black Aoud.
