    If it isn't you it will likely be me. And I kind of work for the Post Office. Basenoters across the world are helping keep the USPS in business! (hmm.)

    I swore when I began this fragrance fascination (addiction) that I would NEVER buy or need more than 30 bottles of fume, and that I would NEVER EVER obsess about needing backup bottles AND certainly NEVER EVER EVER make myself crazy searching for vintage juice...

    Well, I've broken two promises now. I am completely panic-stricken and obsessively purchasing backups just in case, staying up waaay too late at night scouring the net for vintage bottles and very quickly approaching my 30 Full Bottle limit (back ups don't count toward full bottle total, thankfully). I'm sick I tell you!

    Today I bought back ups for Vanilia, La Chasse Aux Papillons, and Miss Dior...

    LOL Bloomy, you're in very good company here. (I am afraid my "resolve" didn't allow me to stop at 20, 30, or even (shudder) 60 FBs. (but I did sell a few "backups" I realized were very silly to have! Yeah! That Helps!) (Hey, I look at it this way: if I end up years from now, penniless, spending my last days on this planet eating cat food, I'll still smell nice doing it!)

    Oh Luna, you are a bad influence, I don't even like cat food. I do have a dog though...

    I just found out that I won an auction for MORE Dzing! Which I already had a full bottle of, so that's four back up frags in one day! Three of them L'Artisans, man there is something seriously wrong with me...

    I feel like I have barely scratched the proverbial fragrance surface as far as sampling and sniffing and learning so I need to put the brakes on back up purchases and focus on broadening my horizon. My concern is that if I do more sampling and sniffing I KNOW I will go over my 30 bottle limit. This is prolly the wrong thread for my whining.

    Oh, it's light and sweet, but not too sweet, not cloying, just soft and nice for summer. If it were a color it would be a soft pale yellow.

    C.O. Bigelow's was having their semiannual sale. Selected items were 75% off. I was at a different store earlier this week and they had different items on sale, and the most was 50% off. So I guess it depends on the store. So, check it out!

    I don't think we have C.O. Bigelow. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity, though! 75% off is about right to get me to invest in L'Artisan ...

    We stopped in at Whole Foods in Milford (CT) today and I noticed they carried the Maroma perfume line, with testers. A boxed 10 ml. splash bottle is $13.99. These are oil-based, alcohol-free perfumes.

    I bought Night Jasmine, which settles down to smelling quite a bit like Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia after the very sweet top notes depart. (It doesn't smell at all like night flowering jasmine-- just like ordinary jasmine!) I am going to experiment with layering it.

    I did try their Rose Attar but found it smelled first like an artichoke, then like a cooked rose. Sweet Sandal didn't smell anything like sandalwood; Vetyver was shrill, but if you like vetiver don't take my word for it-- it may be just what you like. Vanilla was cloying (but I don't like vanilla perfumes). I may test Patchouli on skin next time-- I wasn't in the mood for it today.

    That particular Whole Foods also carries Pacifica sprays and body creams (including French Lilac, which is harder to find locally than the other scents), with testers for all. While I don't care much for the French Lilac spray, the body cream is quite realistic and I may buy it next visit.

    Or not-- I have soooo many body creams already!
