    I resisted the urge to run over to TJ Maxx after work...

    But I did receive the parcel of three FB's bought from a basenoter: Kolnisch Juchten by Parfums Regence, Le 3me Homme, and Mouchoir de Monsieur... and feel I got a very good deal on these three... so I'm satisfied for the moment.

    I must save up as I'll be on vacation the second week of August, visiting family in Colorado... that's incentive that I can hang onto in order to save some pennies for now.

    I've been fighting the urge as well, but it's been so long since I bought a new frag that I may give in!

    My partial bottle (20 mls remaining) of Berdoues Muguet Precieux arrived from TPC. Softly powdery, pretty and wearable-- a "comfort" LOTV.

    Hmmm, I definitely have a hankering for that one. It would be yet another blind buy.

    The Prescriptives Calyx sounds luscious, petruccijc!

    Well, here goes:

    Hermes Eau de Pamplemousse Rose (a blind buy)
    Lalique's Encre Noire Pour Elle (an oh-so-pretty light floral with a je ne sais quoi, a definite wrist-sniffer)
    Acqua Allegoria Mandarine-Basilic (so refreshing, and the prettiest mandarin fragrance to date!), with a mini of Pierre Cardin's Rose Cardin
    Acqua Allegoria Grosselina (another blind buy, but who's counting?), with a mini of Azzaro
    Vintage Shalimar EDC, part-bottle
    Acqua Allegoria Ylang & Vanille decant (rich vanilla, gorgeous). I've been on a vanilla hunt lately.

    Holy bank account, Batman, and the month is not even halfway through!

    Yay for Anne Pliska and Soir de Lune, knit_at_nite! (For some reason, I keep misreading your name as kite_at_night, though. )

    Today I had a *horrible* day at work, so I bought SL Fleurs d'Oranger to cheer myself up. Probably not a good habit to fall into, but I really need a pick-me-up.

    Got my bottle of vintage Ysatis in yesterday, it is flower-dynamic a la mode de Cabotine and it's lovely. Am awaiting a bottle of Tocade, a herkin' huge vintage bottle of Arpege, and a couple of replacement backup bottles of Coriolan (one of which may be sent off to replace a possibly lost-in-the-post sale... sigh... just reveling in how wonderful a scent that is.)

    (so much for not buying scent during the summer!)

    Ooh knit_at_nite I LOVE Turbulences... have a vintage PDT splash bottle that I hope lasts for YONKS!

    And double-ooh petruccjc... the M.A.C. Africanimal sounds like it would smell amazing.

    I'm sure jealous of Gary's Sel de Vetiver. I sampled that recently for the first time and it immediately went on my wish list.

    The Love's Rain Scent arrived and it smells like soap. Dove soap, if I recall that odor correctly. I'm sure it didn't smell that way back in the day. Oh, well, it'll make a good bathroom spray!

    This might sound kind of crazy to most people, but not to you all!: Back when Donna Karan Chaos was re-released thru Bergdorf Goodman, I somehow talked myself into a bottle of Wenge essence as well while on the phone with the SA in New York. All the essences were re-released too, and had previously been sold as very expensive, very small bottles of perfume oil. It was a blind buy, and after reading reviews I had twinges of buyer's remorse as some people found it too one-dimensional, and superfluous if you already owned Chaos and/or Black Cashmere (heck, I have backup bottles of original BC). So I didn't open it. I thought I might return it. Or maybe sell it on the marketplace, or ebay. I didn't want to sniff it and lose half its sale value just because I'd sampled one little squirt. I was mostly, but not entirely sure I'd like it a lot based on my love of Chaos and BC, but how do I know, right? A year went by. I requested a sample in my BN sig, but got no offers. I couldn't find it in stores out here yet. Now it's almost two years and the box is still wrapped in cellophane. Then last week I decided to see what it was going for on fleabay. I saw only one full bottle, offered in Germany, I believe, that went for about what I paid. And a 7ml tester here in the states! So I made a Best Offer and got the tester for $12.58 shipped. And I LOVE it!!! It is indeed the essence of Black Cashmere, but without all the spices and headiness that can make it too heavy for warm weather. It is precisely the note in new Chaos that my nose wants more of (like old Chaos). So I'll layer, yay! I'm so glad I have a full bottle! Off with the cellophane! I love a happy ending.

    Hubby and I both liked the freshness of the new limited edition L'Occitane Verbena Summer Secret edt and bought a bottle to share today. This one is all about the first 15 minutes; plan to respray often!

    IMO the matching "shower jelly" (a new way to write shower gel?) and the moisturizing body gel do not have enough scent and are not worth it.

    Top notes: Green Apple and Cooling Anise

    Middle notes: Verbena Absolute, Mint and Basil

    Base notes: Cedar and Musk

    A few items I "forgot about" that were purchased recently:

    Vetiver Bourbon Pure Essential Oil 25 ml from Julia Lawless Aqua Oleum, an intensely smoky, earthy and rooty vetiver that is great for layering and deepening other scents, used sparingly; Another variety of Vetiver Bourbon that smells even more strongly and went into my "future perfumer kit" scents... it's not as ready for daily use as the AO oil; A 1993 vintage Indonesian Patchouli essential oil from Aromatics International that is rich, sweet, aged patch and is also good for layering or blending.

    some of recent purchases have arrived:
    1.7 oz EDP Lilith by Callaghan EDP- finding this scent challenging- must re-test
    Anne Pliska- This is deep- resinous- SULTRY- so "ME"
    15 ml Turbulences by Revillon- like, but not sure it's "me" must re-test
    Sisley Soir de Luna mini- Love this! Smells so classic for something created so recently
    Kenzo de Kenzo 3.4 oz- iconic 80's nice for curlling up with a thick robe and zoning out
    Gucci Envy Me Too - very wearable office scent
