    Ordered yet another bottle of Ma Liberte by Patou and a bottle of Witness to satisfy my need for cinnamon. May your way be as pleasant.

    10mls of Carnal Flower whilst I consider a full bottle purchase. I am still in love with this stuff after a bit of a rocky start with it.

    The Montale Black Aoud swap was awaiting me at the post office today, the last of my FB-Buying Flurry!

    I'll be going through my wardrobe for potential swaps/sales and assessing what I have now...

    (I have to admit I did have a snipe in on a FB of Cumming the Fragrance but didn't want to get too spendy so I didn't win it... that's it now until fall!)

    I just read recently that L'Artisan Vanilia was discontinued, I'm not sure if that was here or another site. Terrible news! This is one of the few fragrances that I liked enough to finish the bottle. It was also one of my first (if not the first) niche purchase. Luckily, I wandered into a local perfume store today that still had some in stock. I bought a 50ml bottle. Unfortunately, they didn't have any 100ml bottles. But I feel fortunate and happy to own this fragrance once again.

    So glad you found it! I like this one too, and should probably look for a bottle.

    Marvelous! If only your imagination could be projected onto the big screen.

    Maintaining restrained shopping habits, I went and spent just 99¢ for two empty Goutal bottles from the 'bay (of course shipping was 6x that). But I want to move my Mandragore juice out of the “man” bottle and display the chunky thing apart from my girly frag cabinet. Dumb, I know.

    Why thank you kindly Quarry

    I'm going through a Caron phase at the moment, and I've just ordered a vintage bottle of Nuit de Noël EdT. I'm considering Infini next -it's so reasonably priced and plentiful on eBay.

    Congratulations! I managed to get number 1085 last year, and I treasure it. Are you going to wear it? I'm tempted, but I'd feel like I'm desecrating it -although it does smell better than my other bottles...

    Thanks, and congratulations yourself!
    I don't think I will so much as sneak a sniff inside the bottle... I'd like to try and keep it in pristine condition... though as a press gift, it is likely THE most vintage juice anyone is going to find!
    I have ordered a vintage EDP online that I think i will spritz whenever I am tempted to bust this one open

    Dimitri, Yowza that is a true beauty!

    I got a new sealed bottle of Yves Rocher Voile D'Ambre delivered today. It was $15.50 including shipping, so my retirement fund is still intact

    I've been holding myself for about 2 months, so in the past week I got Chergui (my first bottle of Serge Lutens), Calandre EdT, and Madame Rochas PdT. I'm also waiting for Gris Clair. I'd like to know if the Calandre and Madame Rochas are vintage:

    Dear zliang,

    from the bottle I can tell that Madame Rochas is vintage - as for Calandre, that's difficult, since the flacon looks the same as back in the 70's today.
    Great scents! Hope you'll enjoy them.

    Way to go knit_at_nite! LOL It is well worth your $15.50! As is the Rose Absolute from the same line. Glad it was still "sealed"! But in this case, bust it open and spritz away.

    Anayake Miyako and the current Murasaki (I have a vintage Murasaki, too...) are coming from ebay... (I've had good luck lately with "buy it now or best offer" -- I submit an offer -- usually 2/3 of what they're asking, and twice now they've accepted it. If they come back with a counter offer, you can ignore it, if you like.)

    I've ordered samples of IRISSS, and Amouage: Dia, Reflection, and Jubilation.

    And from Highland Lilac of Rochester, a sample of the Highland Lilac.

    After a divine sample from Kumquat , ordered a FB of Jean Patou Invitation. Classic, scrumptious and a must-have from first sniff!

    How very cool! This is one I've been waiting to be released for a while. It is now sitting on my Luckyscent cart. Let us know how you like it.
