    A new shop opened at West Farms mall, where Bailey, Biddle and Banks used to be: Designer Perfumes.

    They had a number of Demeter scents, so I took the opportunity to sample, and ended up buying Lily of the Valley, which is a pretty nice muguet, for $20.

    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.

    Last week I bought(but it arrived yesterday), SL Louvre 15mls decant from ebay.

    Strangely it is in an offical SL tube like bottle with sprayer and the Palais Royal in black and name on the front. This seller seems to have different ones like this, I have only every seen the mini bottles the same as the export larger bottles.

    Today I was browsing at Marshall's, and found a plethora of perfume. They had stacks of 1.7 oz. bottles of J.Lo's Deseo for $15, so I snapped one up -- there's easily $15 worth of summery fun in there!

    They also had a lot of Ferre by Ferre (don't remember the price, but it was low) -- wasn't that a group favorite here? I almost blind bought it ...

I adore the scent of real lilacs but never seem to enjoy fragrances that are lilac-heavy. For some reason, any time lilac is at the forefront of a scent, that scent always ends up giving me a massive headache. But this little sample may finally steer me in the direction of a lilacesque scent I can actually wear and enjoy!
    Leesee, how wonderful! I've been eying her samples, mainly the lilac ones, but I need to move some out to get some in and I'm on a buying furlough this month... but I should be getting them in June! Are you reviewing these somewhere? I'd love to read your thoughts!

    My incense fest from Ava Luxe arrived - Incense Noir oil and Opoponax Intense extrait. The Incense Noir is positively barbaric - lots of raw wood smoke make it a truly dark incense. Like razing Avignon to the ground. Wonderful! The Opoponax Intense is evading my powers of sniffing. I find it a very feminine incense and I can't quite place why. Possibly because it reads like the expensive base of one of the classic feminines? Also, after a very long wait for an affordable bottle, eBay has sent me Penhaligon's Lily & Spice, which was well worth the wait. I think that's me done for May!
    Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.

    Miss Dior, 30ml vintage Esprit de Parfum, box was still cellofan wrapped
    Dioressence, 6ml vintage parfum, approx. 3ml left, w/box
    Madame Rochas, 7,5ml vintage parfum, never used, w/ box
    L'Air du Temps de Ricci, 100ml vintage EdT splash, approx. 90ml left
    L'Air du Temps de Ricci, 100ml vintage (?) EdT, approx. 95ml left, no cap
    Anaïs Anaïs, 100ml vintage EdT, NEW, w/box

    This was truely a rare find, usually one only find modern stuff,
    and if vintage stuff, then mere mortal money can't pay for it.
    I guess the poor fellow was selling his dead mothers stuff?!
    He didn't know what it was ... to my big luck! They were in a
    big box with Yves Rocher stuff, he thought it was trash!

    Hahaha, don't be sad, it could might as well be a container found. He looked like a dumbster diver to me!
    As for Karma, hmm, I first collected the Diors, went back for the Ricci's, and said 'these are a bit bigger', as
    like I wanted him to charge me some more money, but he just said, 'you can have those for 10kr too'.
    Hell, should I have told him, that he needed to charge me some 50-100 times more?! Heeeeell no!

    Tom Ford Velvet Gardenia, arrived yesterday! I had to call around a bit to find a 50ml bottle, but 3rd try was a charm and I found it at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco. With their scent event I got a whole bunch of samples too, plus they threw in a few moreTF samples per my request. Woo-hoo!!

    This is not really a purchase report, but those of you who frequent the L'Artisan Parfumerie Facebook page know that I won a recent contest. The prize was $500 worth of perfume. You can imagine how excited I was to be the winner, as L'Artisan is my favorite perfume house! I had no idea what they were going to send me, but today the package came. I'm very happy with their choices. Along with a slew of their nice big samples, this is what was in the box:



    Yes, all 100 ml. bottles! I really like Voleur de Roses, Poivre Piquant, and Vanilia, but didn't have bottles of them. It's funny – very recently I came SO close to buying Vanilia, as I heard that it was being discontinued. I'm glad I waited! The fourth bottle, Dzongkha, is one that I already owned in 50 ml. However, it's one of my top favorite fragrances, so I can't really complain about having a lifetime supply, can I?

    Thanks for letting me share my joy!

    There is one on eBay as we speak;

    Poison Parfum

    The Esprit is between EdP and parfum.

    Haunani, I missed that piece of news. How wonderful! Enjoy!

    I bought a mini of Britney Spears Fantasy on clearance at the drugstore. At Walgreen's they had Mother's Day gift sets on sale and a further $6 off with a coupon, but I didn't like what they had (Faith Hill, Celine Dion Sensational, Halle, Jovan), so I only bought a mini and two boxes of granola bars.

    That's the one I had in the 70s. It was gorgeous. I wish the current No. 5 edt smelled as nice!

    Yes WOW!!!!! Congrats.

    Just won on ebay UK MPG Sandal Noble, it was a second chance offer. Actually got a great deal as the seller is closing shop and has a number of MPG on sale. Anyway I saved a good deal on their BIN price.

    Having promised myself I would stay away from TJMaxx and Marshal's fragrance isles, today I, of course, broke my promise.

    Purchased:
    Marc Jacobs Cucumber Spash 300 ml (a fridge fragrance for after tennis on hot days)
    Bulgari Eau Parfumee au the Vert 100 ml (I actually have been wanting this for summer and grabbed the only bottle I saw)
    Lacoste Pour Femme Shower Gel (just in time for layering with my Lacoste PF during the French Open!)

    So, see, they all have a purpose Whatever rationalization it takes......

    Congratulations, Haunani!

    Yesterday, on my sniffing adventure, I bought Quelques Fleurs Royale edp and body lotion and Krigler's Lieber Gustav. Guilty, but happy.

    The nice thing about Serena is that she's very accessible, you can email her and ask her if she might have a bottle tucked away somewhere or encourage her to make something again.

    Oh pants - hit the wrong button. Again! This was a comment on the remarks about Ava Luxe's Midnight Violet.

    However, while I'm here I should probably confess to buying a 10ml vintage Caleche on eBay. And 5mls of Mousse de Chene extrait from Ava Luxe. Mmmm!

    Haunai, that is an amazing prize - congratulations!

    Blue Grass. I think my mother might like it. I give her my L'Heure Bleue and Apres l'Ondee when she's going out, but she might like this for ordinary wear -although she's developed rather extravagant tastes lately -I wonder how that happened

    Prada Infusion de fleur d'Oranger. Anybody tried it? It sounded so good I had to order.

    Tee Hee ,Sean ! My story with my Mom is similar- she's developed a rather expensive taste in perfume lately, due to me ! *LOL*
    My mummy wears L'heure Bleue better than I ever will.I bet your Mom will love Blue Grass- my Mother does .
