    Oh mysticknot, you are tormenting me! I want BOTH of those!!!

    I did not like Carnal Flower so much at first because I had only tried it on paper, but it is an entirely different thing on my skin.

    Good thing Mother's Day is fast approaching, I feel a bender coming on....

    Bloomy- I 'm sorry to torment you- I tormented myself enough with Champaca. I do think it's worth the price- it does seem to last and last - it smells like quality too even though it's a measly 45 mls EDP. ( There's EDP and ...there's EDP ! *LOL*)
    And I went for that fugly pyramid bottle- may as well go all the way ,right ? !

    Now I am tormenting myself with Carnal Flower - it took me a while to love too............

    I bought Cabaret by Grès today in Marshall's. I'd read so many raves about it that I decided to try it. I'm not sure this is my thing, though I need to give it a fair trial, not spritzed on over another frag.

    OMG. Are you my twin?

    I just bought my first Serge Lutens bottle... Chergui!
    My next bottle (when I can afford it) will be Gris Clair. I was completely shocked that I loved it as much as I did on my skin.

    Today I found, for $3.00, a full 28 gr. (i.e. one ounce) flacon of vintage Arpège extrait. Opened, but with some of the gold cord still attached. I only have the base of the box.

    Someone on Perfume of Life made the observation that vintage Arpège smells very much like Amouage Gold. While there certainly are similarites, neither could be mistaken for the other. I prefer Amouage Gold; my daughter likes the Arpège better.

    I ordered some Keiko Mecheri sample sprays, hoping against hope that either Osmanthus or Datura Blanche will smell enough like SL Datura Noir that my heart won't be broken when my Datura Noir sample vial runs out.

    CdG Champaca received but I am too scared to spray it now . It's so gorgeous in a shiny red gift box type which opens like a red flower. After the amount of money I spent for 45 mls of EDP - even that' almost hideous' bottle is looking damned pretty ! *LOL*

    I bought samples from Luckyscent -the new Gardenia Grand Soir and a sample of Gardenia Petale because though I sampled it at the Scent bar- I really must try again.
