    Although the drydown smells exactly like that to me, I didn't find it offputting much. It's a very intimate smell though. Mind you, I'm talking about the extreme drydown, about six hours in, when all the florals have dissipated.

    I know , it seems perfume buying is my top priority . I couldn't care less about buying skin cream and lipsticks which used to fill me with pleasure previously.

    This is my first purchase for the month of June:

    [IMG][/IMG]

    I bought it unsniffed and actually, I'd never even heard of it until a couple of days ago on this board. I mentioned that I wish there was a fragrance with my name and someone told me that there already is. so.... I HAD to purchase .... TRACY

    I hope I like it, but if not, no worries 'cuz this is only about the name. LOL

    I spell my name as TRACEY, but I guess that's close enough.

    Yesterday I ordered a large sample of Sous Le Vent.
    Now I am greatly interested in Sous Le Vent and Vega by Guerlain. Time will tell just how this path will turn out........

    I also ordered a new Tempur- pedic Rhapsody bed ( really really need it unfortunately ) - it's very telling about my fragrance addiction that I measure the cost of a new bed by the number of wonderful Guerlain perfumes I can buy instead.

    Naughty Duckie ! Yeah ,it would be a public display and both of us would be hauled to jail !

    Cello- will do. I wait with trepidation- I would have much preferred 30 bottles of exclusive Guerlain perfume instead of a boring bed but my husband is not happy about sleeping on the floor ! *LOL*

    A few days ago I went to Saks for the Bond No. 9 promotion and bought:
    High Line 50ml
    Chelsea Flowers 50ml
    And received a free 100ml Eau de New York tester and a load of samples!

    So happy with this purchase! Absolutely love High Line and Eau de NY. I have a strong like for Chelsea Flowers - was going back and forth between this, Union Square, Astor Place, Brooklyn and Park Ave, but I feel I made the right choice. CF was the best on my skin, and I can see myself wearing this often. From trying out the samples, I think a possible future purchase may be New York Fling.

    Yesterday, i went to Neimans because I wanted to exchnge my Tom Ford Azure Lime for another TF. I ended up keeping Azure Lime and purchased a FB of Bois Rouge. I also got a decant of Champaca Absolute because they were running a promotion whereby a decant is given with every FB purchase. SA said the decant was 3ml, but there is no way it is that small. Its got to be at least 6ml....the bottle is a very decent size. Anyway, the TF rep was so sweet and helpful. I ended up sniffing the entire TF line and she made generous samples for me of all the ones that I fell in love with. She also told me that two of the ones I really liked are discontinued. Once the stock is depleted, there will be no more. So because of that, she is holding bottles of Purple Patch and Moss Breches for me that I will go back for next week. After I left the TF counter, I stopped by Jo Malone and picked up White Tie and Tiaras.

    After I left NM, I went to Barneys. Why did I do that? There were so many to die for fragrances at Barneys but I was stronger there than I was at NM's and I only picked up Yosh Omniscent. But the SA gave me all the samples I wanted and I left with samples of Frederic Malle Noir Epices and Bois d'Orage; Yosh Ginger Ciao Parfum Delrae Bois De paradis; L'Artisan Nuit de Tubereuse; Intelligent Nutrients Jasmine; SL L'eau and a few others.

    all in all it was an expensive day, but it was a good day. I'm quite pleased!!!
