    After not liking this at first, then testing it for a few more days, I caved. I ordered a 3.4 oz tester of Angel. In the mail today I received my D & G #3, and a 'baby' each of Arpege and Versace's Bright Crystal. I could easily get addicted to minis. They're so cute!

    Most of my collection is minis! They are adorable and so cheap -- but I miss the spray.

    Yes, minis are adorable. I got a mini of Marc Jacobs pure parfum . I *like* the EDP but I want to see how different it is in parfum strength.

    I just received my mini of Bright Crystal, and for me it's FB-worthy, on my list of soon-to-be purchases. Sorry I can't give much info except for me it's a wonderful fruity-pink juice if you like that sort. Lovely delicate floral notes too. A fragrance can't be too fruity for me, if that's any indication for you.

    I've been enjoying my recent acquisition of Arpege EDT. To Arpege-lovers - any thoughts on whether the EDP is worth picking up? Is there a huge difference?

    I made two very special purchases today off fellow BNers. I'd been testing Chanel No. 5. Love it. Splurged on a bottle of the parfum.

    Also took the plunge and bought vintage Mitsouko EDC - unsniffed yet. I couldn't resist.

    I am so looking forward to receiving these!

    Versace's Bright Crystal EDT tester - If you enjoy (very) fruity florals, give this a try. I have the mini but had to have a FB. Love that pink juice!
    Badgley Mischka EDP - A lovely, delicate & sweet floral (right up my street). I couldn't stop sniffing my wrist when I was testing a sample.

    From the Badgley Mischka website:
    Top notes = Red Wild Berries, Peach, Ceylon Cinnamon.
    Middle notes = Osmanthus Flower, White Peony, Jasmine.
    Base notes = Suede Musk, Indian Sandalwood, Caramel Amber, Patchouli.

    Ivoire de Balmain - Got this at a fabulous price and I couldn't resist. I mean, it was on my Wish List.



    My credit card is still smoking in my hands.

    Hello to newcomers whose arrivals I've missed: Sophronia (I love the fragrance of F24 on others, not quite as successful at wearing it myself. Wish I could smell you), bookwyrmsmith (happy to sniff you wearing any of your classic purchases), lover (I don't know Sweet Desire, but giving you a welcome hug, too).

    Earlier this month, I bought FBs (unsniffed) of Bellodgia and Ma Griffe. (Did I already post on these two?)

    At the moment, I am happily sipping my tea, recuperating from my first ever Nordstrom Cosmetic Trend Show. What fun! I got a few things:

    Laila (Geir Ness) purse set in a fabulous tote (reversible cream patent/blue) that contained gigantic bottle of EDP (3.4 fl. oz.), lotion, parfum mini (cute!), and some eye product. So I tried it before - it's a nice-enough fruity floral. I think the trick is waiting to get through the less-than-fabulous topnotes. I've had this on for an hour or so, and I really like it now (EDP layered with the lotion)

    Plus some stuff from MAC, Kiehl's and a nice brush from Trish McEvoy.

    The people at the event were pushing the new Balenciaga HARD. It was actually pretty annoying.
    Plus, I'm probably in the minority, but I am/was really not a huge fan... pretty bottle, though.

    Today I swapped with a co-worker- she got my collection of Victoria's Secret (5)cologne sprays +(4)matching lotions all purse size from the garden collection(I had them since christmas of 2008 barely used ).I got 2 bottles #1 1.7 oz EDT,.33oz perfume of Elizabeth Arden Red Door-it smells alot like Sun Moon Stars EDTminus some fruit in the topnotes.Then I swung by Ross and found a gift set of EA Green Tea (a summer staple for me this is probably my third set/fifth bottle? It's very light so I use it quickly)$11.
    By the way the 14 minis have come and I've sniffed but not tried everything yet !Eau de My Sin came as well as the minis in EDT for YSL Y and Guerlain Mitsouko-very yummy chypres now I need to hunt FB/higher concentrations.
    The YSL Baby Doll Paris EDT full size tester wasn't the BD Paris but the limited edition BD Magic . The Ebay seller had the notes correct from the bottle tag so I am happy with it BD Magic is a lot like Burberry Brit Sheer with a touch more cedar/ LotV less siliage and less longevity.

    I haven't bought much myself this month, we're spending our money on an extension to our house which will soon be ready.

    I did however celebrate my birthday this month and my darling husband brought me a collection of minis from Dior; J'Adore, Hypnotic Poison, Miss Dior Cherie, Miss Dior Cherie L'Eau and Dior Addict 2. All very fine, but the latter isn't so much to my taste. I'll save it for my daughter.

    This week I went for a shopping spree online though, and got myself a 50 ml bottle of Juliette has a Gun Miss Charming and two discovery sprays from Molinard; Molinard de Molinard and Habanita, teamed with some soap. I'm still waiting for it all to arrive, can't wait!

    For $2.00, a boxed, sealed splash (stoppered) bottle of California Perfume Company (Avon) Lily of the Valley. Box says 1886-1999 so the bottle is no older than 1999.
