    Default Today I bought.........May 2010

    Well I didn't buy it, but I received a gift from a VERY generous BNer - a 10ml bottle of Ava Luxe Midnight Violet extrait. It is truly spectacular.

    Notes include Violet, Blue Iris, Orris, Earth, Black Hemlock, Galbanum, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, Cedar, Sandalwood, Incense, Wood Balsam, Moss, Civet, and Cashmere Musk.

    I just read Chaya's review of Midnight Violet on Perfume Shrine yesterday, petruccijc, and it sounds gorgeous. Enjoy!

    After wearing a sample of Atelier Trefle Pur for a week, I headed to Neimans today to purchase a full bottle of this beauty. However, I came home without it. Instead I purchased Le Baiser Du Dragon; Miss Dior; Coco Mlle Sensual Elixir. For some reaon, I let the SA sway my decision because she offered me some of the nicest goodies with my purchase of Cartier. I'm still pleased with my purchases though. I'll get the Atelier next time.

    Oh,lots of nice buys here! That makes me feel a little less guilty...I ordered a bottle of Musc Ravageur this Friday..and,I know, it's not exactly the best time of the year for this type of scent..and,I know, I shouldn't have gone for the 100 ml bottle..but..you know this "needtohaveitNOW" kind of situation??That's what happened to me ever since I first smelled it..besides, they're increasing the Malle prices here this month, I just had to grab one before that happened!!

    My husband bought me Carnal Flower which is very sweet of him considering I dyed his hair yesterday and made a complete hatchet job of it- it was supposed to be ash blonde but it came out Billy Idol white. OMG !

    Wow, Carnal Flower!

    Technically these are April purchases/perfumes, but it feels a bit retrograde to post them in the April thread, so I hope no one minds.

    My husband bought me Amaranthine (100ml) for my birthday, my sister regifted Chanel Chance EDP 35ml to me, and I bought myself L'air de rien. The L'air de rien is yet to arrive - I had to buy online since going to the Nottingham Miller Harris store, I discovered it had closed down. And then John Lewis was all out too. Still, at least buying online meant I got a free mini candle. I chose Terre de Bois, completely on instinct, I hope it's nice!

    Fabulous finds!

    I headed out shopping to buy Circus Fantasy by Britney Spears but found online pricing to be much cheaper. Still haven't ordered it. I bought Bouquet by Vera Wang, an absolutely delightful floral. As well, I bought Pink Sugar. Couldn't help myself. Tried D & G #3 - a gorgeous fruity scent - which might make it as another May purchase.

    Dior Poison edt, 50 ml. After all these years, this is my first bottle of this juice. My daughter loves it on me but it did burn just a tiny bit when I sprayed it on my fore arms. Tuberose ain't my "thang" but I love jasmine sambac!

    25ml Bvlgari Pour Femme - a lovely floral that has a great 'old fashioned cosmetics' air about it; very lipstick-y. Nice staying power although the drydown is pretty subtle on my skin; it's a very elegant fragrance. Much better than some of Bvlgari's other offerings.

    Chaya's review is wonderful and I bought Midnight Violet based on it ! It is Serena's masterpiece IMHO and wish she would bring it back.

    Yesterday received Annayake Miyako from ebay. (From TPC: A beautiful Oriental woody fragrance that combines incense and floral notes including cardamom, cinnamon, frankincense, hinoki, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, patchouli, cedar, sandalwood, musk, rockrose, benzoin, myrrh, and amber.)
    I'd describe it as L'Air du Desert Marocain LIGHT. They're VERY similar!

    Yep, that was me! Cocktail sounded like fun; couldn't resist getting the mini. I will let you know! Couldn't find a mini of Vacances, though. :-(

    I'm also interested in hearing about Jean Patou's Cocktail. Better late than never, I'm looking forward to receiving my sample of Jean Patou's 1000. I may order a sample of Mitsouko too.

    Also looking forward to developing a more sophisticated 'nose' and learning lots here at BN!
