    Did a fleamarket on the way home from the nightshift,
    and look and behold, I struck gold again (none are testers);

    100ml No. 5, EdP, NEW. I hoped to find this baby, what's the odds for actually finding it?!
    125ml Dior Homme Cologne, approx. 35ml left.
    7ml Amarige de Givenchy, pure parfum, approx. 6ml left.
    And a big ass bottle - 1000ml? - of Sergio Tacchini Uomo, EdT. I reckon most is water, it is quite faint.

    Izod EDT
    Quiksilver EDT Gift Set
    Tea Rose

    A set of real steals at Marshall's. The Izod was $12.95, the Quiksilver gift set was $19.95, and the Tea Rose was $9.99.

    My wife likes the Tea Rose, but personally I'm not a fan. Interesting, and smells like a real rose, but it's just not exciting me.

    Izod is a known love-at-first-sniff in Macy's, but I waited for it to go on special. That review where Luca Turin talked about falling in love with a particular dollar bill? Yeah. That's this fragrance. It's simply an exceptional member of a crowded genre.

    Quiksilver is interesting before you get it out of the box. Literally, the escaping odor from the bottle is fascinating. I'm looking forward to wearing and reviewing this one very soon. This was a blind buy, using only BN reviews to guide me.

    Spent about an hour at one of those fragrance kiosks in the middle of the mall aisle...it was so disorganized it had piles of fragrances on top of other piles. Incredibly hard to find anything.

    Finally, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a vintage bottle of...

    Went to the Frederic Malle store for the second time and again had a very hard time there (spent a lot of time, but worth it - superb staff, service)...
    well, there is no excuse, I know - I left with a bottle of Une Fleur de Cassie and Noir Epices, although I had planned to get a go with the 3 x 10 ml travel set (three different frags). I eventually dropped Musc Ravageur as being a bit generic (knowing and loving so many ambers) and too much vanilla (and too little beastly musk on the other hand) on me. I think it is indeed a very nice one to start your collection with, but in mine it is not unique enough to justify yet another bottle, I think. Not finished with this line yet....

    Today was a huge day for me. Well yesterday I bought a 3.4 oz Atman (Phat Farm) and got Carlos Santana 3.4 oz in the mail.
    Today I bought a 2 pack on .5 oz from Banderas - Spirit and Blue Seduction. I also bought a 3.4 oz Curve Soul, and 1.6 oz Giorgio. I also ordered Cuba Black, Cafe de Cafe, Rykiel Man, and Samba Kiss Me (all blind buys) we'll see how they turn out.. I've got some extra money to blow.

    Vetiver shower gel (vintage formula) by Guerlain

    I got a mini bottle of this, and I used it up fairly quickly because it smells so wonderful in the shower. Now, I have another mini tube and a regular size tube also. It compliments the EdT just perfectly and is great for those evenings (or times after the gym) when I don't want to wear something heavy, but I want to be softly fragranced.

    I have no idea how this compares to the 'new' shower gel, but I would like to imagine that the one I have is a bit more complex.

    I'm a couple days late posting this, but I made my first online fragrance buy. I purchased Mountain Water by Swiss Army from fragrancenet.com. It was a blind buy--you can't get this cologne in Canada.

    Waiting for it to arrive is very exciting. I think I just got myself addicted to ordering cologne online.

    I have never tried Zirh Ikon but I have heard of the cinnamon it boasts so while at Marshal's I found two sealed boxes of Zirh Ikon in the 3.4oz size for $7.95 each. At that price I snapped both of them up. Interesting how the cap is held in place by a mangnet. Anyway I am in the process of testing it. Initial response is "not bad".

    Picked up a VINTAGE bottle of MPG's Fraiche Badiane. Really excited about it. I've just begun my exploration into the MPG line. So far, I've acquired Santal Noble, Parfum d'Habit, Centaure, and Fraiche Badiane. I recently read someone's post where they stated once they found MPG they felt like their "quest was over." I can kind of relate.
