    Well it was actually last week. Bas de Soie by Serge Lutens, I just fell in love at first sniff.
    On me it is not soapy as reviews have said, but a glorious creamy floral after it goes through the hyacinth spicy opening and the airy iris middle.

    Roberto Cavalli - Oro at TJ Maxx for Ten. Dollars. Thank you, Primrose for the suggestion on the "summer cinnamon" thread. I couldn't wait to get home to try it, so I sniffed it on my wrist in the car. I think it's going to be ten bucks well spent.

    I bought a load of samples and some good ole Mandom for a friend of mine. He loves the Charles Bronson commercials!

    I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I bought Paris Hilton Fairy Dust. I liked it when I smelled it in a magazine ad, and it was on sale at the drugstore today. I was preparing myself for it to be awful, cheap smelling and unwearable, but after spraying it on my arm just now I'm happy to say that I do like it. It's not bad, a pleasant white floral scent.

    It's back in stock!

    L'Occitane Peony EDT


    The prettiest top notes...so inexpensive too! $40 for a 75 mL bottle. Something of an impulse buy, but that's ok, right?

    Having a big bottle of this one makes up slightly for getting the wrong thing in my Keiko Mecheri package. (huh?) So, I'd ordered the sample collection - something like 30 samples for $68. Instead of a big box of samples, I got a box...with two full bottles. Hm. Me, being the honest person I am...I emailed the company right away to ask for a postage-paid label so I could send these big bottles back to them and also to ask if -please pretty please- could I have my sample collection?

    I'm also getting antsy...I ordered two items from the BeautyStory Caron sale (almost three weeks ago?)...and my card has been charged but no notice on shipping and no response to an email I sent. Well, it's not quite been 48 hours, so maybe they will get to my msg tomorrow.

    Thanks. I've started to get on a Gardenia and Tubersose kick. Of course I blame you for that.

    Congrats on the Creed!

    Thanks. It really is very lovely. I didn't have a lot of green fragrances - so this one fills that area quite nicely.

    Tee Hee- you'll find you won't tire of it either Joe - the tuberose gardenia kick - it's always there lurking in the background ! I'm on a rose kick for the first time.

    Nice! I found Jolie Madame to be very similar ('though perhaps a bit more feminine)...love both of them....

    Mimi - what is Diamond Water? *curiosity piqued*

    Hey, just an update, if anyone is interested - I just got off the phone with a very charming, very nice gentleman at Keiko Mecheri. They got my email and are set to send me my sampler plus the label to return the package they sent by mistake. I'm SO excited about the sampler again!

    I love Peau de Peche by Keiko Mechuri and met her at a recent sampling event in the DC area. She was very charming as were all of the perfume lovers who came to the event as well. They were all lovely although in my nervousness I completely put my foot in my mouth! I can't wait to hear what you think about the samples. Let us know your thoughts on the perfumes!
