    Today I caved and bought D & G #3. I tried it this past weekend and just had to have it! Also placed an order for a mini EDT of Versace's Bright Crystal to try, and a mini EDP of Arpege. I haven't smelled Arpege for years & years; I hope it's as beautiful today.

    Big bottle of Laguna! Will probably tire of it soon but it's basic drydown resemblance to another fave makes me want to enjoy this fling a while longer!

    And I indulged in a bottle of Turbulences parfum, on Kumquat's mossy recommendation. Can't imagine seeing it again at that price!

    I went to Paris today and headed straight to 31 Rue Cambon for Chanel No 22 and Cuir de Russie parfum. I also managed to swing by Guerlain and Caron, but didn't actually get anything from them, which I kind of regret.

    Tott...oh my, but that sounds lovely.

    The generosity of basenotes members makes my heart swell. I was gifted recently with a beautiful package which contained Youth Dew parfum, Youth Dew bath oil, a sample of Ave Luxe Midnight Violet, a lovely card and some Sweet Tarts. Sofie is loving the Sweet Tarts, they were just in time for standardized testing at her school.

    Thank You!!!!!!

    Today I purchased a small bottle of Balenciaga Paris edp. I love the violet/pepper chypre scent. It's comforting.

    What a perfect Mother's Day treat! I tried this fragrance recently. It's one of the prettiest violet-based fragrances I've come across.

    Two days ago I bought a lot of samples and a couple of large decants (African Honeysuckle, Rose #1 The American Beauty, and Rose #3 The Beach Roses) from Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's studio. The whole experience was great, and I'm not even sure what am I doing back home

    My 'previously (un)loved' bottle of Dune from eBay arrived at work today. I spritzed a post it and popped it in an envelope to take secret huffs off during the day. I think I'm going to enjoy this one!

    I bought a backup of Nahema edp, a backup of Renee Musk, and Kamary, Sahara, Ambre and Olive Flowers from Madini.

    I'm also waiting for these samples from Madini: Mirage, Ambargris, Tajalli, Salma and Karima.

    I purchased three bottles of perfume last weekend and vowed to myself that I'd not make another purchase for a long while. i broke that vow today and purchased YSL Opium. I really like this and I've always known that I would purchase it 'someday'. just never expected 'someday' to come this soon. I was soooo close to resisting but the SA showed me a mini Opium that was included in the GWP set. At that point, my willpower was gone and I became putty in the SA's hands. I collect minis thus I'm always a sucker for them no matter what.

    Had some fun at TPC... Picked up large decants of Caron's Tubereuse in parfum extrait and Serge Lutens' Sarrasins, as well as a bunch of Caron samples and a sample of Berdoues' Violette Divine ( the notes really drew my curiosity - I'm hoping it smells like Midnight Violet with tuberose, though it likely won't ). The Caron Tubereuse is a blind buy, but Sarrasins has been haunting me with its chilly jasmine, and I just couldn't eek out my sample any longer.

    I didn't buy it for myself but I splashed out on my dear husband and bought him a pure Oud Oil called Kyara Koutan. We both love it. It's the most money I've ever spent on scent but well worth it.

    My vintage Chanel 19 arrived today (from ebay.) Seller thinks it's 30ish yrs old... was surprised to see it is "hecho en Mexico"! But was not too dismayed as I'd previously read some chanel and mitsouko were marked such. Had a heck of a time getting the metal seal off the top of the bottle (has anyone seen this before?) and under the metal was a plastic plug. Smells lovely, by the way! Nicer and a lot less powder than my current edt.

    The Soivohle samples I ordered -- Daybreak Violin, Love Speaks Primeval, Lilacs & Roses, and Lilacs & Heliotrope -- arrived today. I'm testing Love Speaks Primeval one one wrist and Lilac Heliotrope on the other. Both are wonderful, but I am especially pleased with the Lilacs & Heliotrope. 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!
