    I was a little bit bad today. I'd been wanting to return to Nordstrom a bottle of Narciso Rodriguez for Her edp that I bought ages ago and never got comfortable with because of the musk. The problem is, I've never found anything worth exchanging it for because I can always do better price-wise on ebay. Well, they've been carrying those Tom Fords for a while now, so I finally applied the NRfH toward a bottle of Oud Wood. Still ended up paying about $90 extra for the Tom Ford, but at least I now have something I actually love and will wear.

    While I was at the mall, I popped into L'Occitane and bought a 10ml splash of Labdanum for $10. A spritz in my right elbow from the tester in the store is still marvelously fragrant after 8 hours. You really can't beat L'Occitane in terms of quality and value, imo. Also, I can confirm that the Peony is back in some stores. Ours received another shipment just two days ago.

    Oh dear. I just realized-- if I'm going to open and keep the bottle of Donna Karan Wenge, do I really need the Oud Wood too? Or actually, do I still want to keep the Wenge now that I have the Oud Wood. Oh, how distressing!

    I didn't know about Jo Malone Tuberose while I was at Nordstrom. I tried her Vetyver and Sweet Lime and Cedar while I was there because they didn't have White Tie and Tiaras and, OMG, our local boutique closed!!! Anyway, I'm really curious about her Tuberose scent now because she has way of taking heavy hitting, indolic, white florals and taming them into fresh, easy to wear accords. Ditto her Vetyver-- no deep earthiness or sharp green, just some citrus and a hint of soap. Well, next time!
    Eddie: Sweetie, what are you drinking?
    Patsy: Oh, this? Chanel No. 5.

    Yesterday I bought Pomegranate Noir. It was exactly intentional, it just happened.

    Also, last week I picked up a 100ml bottle of Elixir des Merveilles on eBay for almost half price. I have to stop for a while now, or my husband will throw me out!

    Heartwood- Jo Malone Tuberose is quite lovely. L'occitane Labdanum is gorgeous too - Primrose gifted me a little bottle and it's marvellous.

    I received my Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie got the honking 8.4 oz bottle and decanted some. Absolutely loving it - the rose note is fabulous. I dare say I like this even more than Une Rose by Freddie Malle.

    Update : I got the rose sampler set . I am so impressed by Bulgarian Rose Otto ( 10 % ) I ordered an extra 5 mls immediately. This stuff is heaven sent!

    It's my birthday, so I'm headed out to NYC's perfume district to see what I can buy. I have a bunch of things on my want list: La Perla, Silences, some of the Capuccis, etc. What I get will depend on price/concentration. (Given what I've collected in the past year, if I add a bottle it must be a good deal.) I'll report back later.

    Happy Birthday rednails!! Your list is a good one - La Perla is one of my very favorites, and Silences and Capucci are also fantastic chypres. You have a great excuse to add a new bottle or two, so have a great time!

    Joe - of course you can be JoJo Gardenia or JoJo Tuberose ...or Gardenia Joe, Joe Tuberose , Joe Gardenia ! Welcome to the Gardenia Brigade ! *LOL*
    Estee Lauder's Tubeorse Gardenia- very little if anything ..beats it in re. to gardenia.

    I have gardenia bushes outside and did abit of very crude headspace technology . I got 4 gardenias and put them in a deep bowl. Then I wore EL Tuberose Gardenia and compared the smell. It's nearly spot on.


    I have ordered Ajne samples from Ajne itself - looking forward to it - costs a bomb for samples alone. I am very fond of Ajne- their customer service is top notch and very friendly including replies from Jane Hendler's husband himself.

    I just bought a bottle-- unopened and still in paper wrapper-- of vintage Mon Peche (My Sin) extrait...my hands are shaking a little as I start to open it. Nervous...a bit of delicious aroma through the packaging...hope it hasn't leaked badly...

    Edit:
    Aagrh!

    All gone, all evaporated, though the thread is intact. A drop or two at the bottom.

    The bottle smells nice!

    The seller also had Toujour Moi --still in box, wrapped in paper-- which I was thinking of going back for, but now I'm afraid it may be dried up too... Gotta think about this one.

    You will like Paris Jardins Romantiques. It is soft and easy to wear, compared to the original Paris. I've got to remember to put it on more often.

    So, today I wanted to secure myself the last bottle of Tendre Poison
    avalible in all of Copenhagen, courtesy of my mom's creditcard.
    But, at arrival to the parfumerie, where I knew they had 1 bottle left,
    30ml, they had sold it! SHOCK! HORROR! What to do?!
    I asked the seller (owner) if she had anymore in stock, unfortunately
    not, she only had one single deo spray left. But if I bought that, she
    would sell me her Tendre Poison tester aswell (illegal as hell, but what?).
    I asked how much she wanted; the retail price for the deo is; DKR 250,
    so I could buy the tester for the same amount. It's a 100ml flacon with
    a good 85ml left, almost 90ml ... a damn good deal! [ DKR 250 = $43 ]

    Now, I have both the vintage juice/design (on the way, see above),
    and the modern ditto, yay!

    Unfortunately Tendre Poison is now officially discontinued in Denmark!

    This is my latest; also picked up a bunch more perfumers' alcohol, jojoba oil, and about half a dozen 1/8 oz bottles of various EOs and FOs from Earth Elements.

    M - Which ones did you get? I've been browsing their site forever and can never seem to make up my mind. I'll have to postpone a bit more, since I just got a bunch of stuff. (eek!)

    In the last few days, a few packages have landed on my doorstep...they include

    1) My BeautyHabit order! A bottle of Nicolai's Jardin Secret (blind buy!), Ineke sampler, and Memoire Liquide "Livre" (very cute "book" holding travel size sprays of their 5 EDPs). BH also included 5 samples with my purchase (2 DelRae's, 3 Luten's) - how exciting! I also got a bar of the iris soap by Nesti Dante.

    Hillaire - if you are reading this thread, I tried the DelRae Coup de Foudre last night. It's so beautiful and unique!

    2) Keiko Mecheri's sample collection. After much debate (on my part), I finally decided to splurge on the $68 collection. It includes 30 fragrances (!), packaged beautifully in boxes. It comes with a BOOK, too! There was a little mix-up with my order, so I think they gave me 3 (extra) samples gratis (I don't have it with me now, but IIRC, they are the Loukhoum collection!). I am SO excited! And no, I haven't sprayed myself with a million different KMs yet - as I am completely taken with Gourmandises (I know it gets mixed reviews, but I really love this one).

    I'm not sure if you may have noticed, but I LOVE sample collections/coffrets. :P It's a weakness, I guess. I just adore how these things are put together...

    Might have to show some restraint for a little while...that is, once I decide whether or not the DelRae MUST be obtained now.

    Tonight I came home from an aggravating Monday at work...to find a package from last month's BeautyStory sale on Caron! At long last, I am the happy owner of bottles of Infini and Montaigne. The former starts like No. 19, but now, a good 2+ hours later, I get leather? No leather listed among the notes, so what am I smelling? Vetiver? Musk? Confused slightly, but nevertheless very happy with this "blind buy". Infini is "dry" (not sweet), without a lot of "floweriness". Montaigne, on the other hand (or arm, as it may be), is a warm yummy oriental. Here are the notes from the sale:


    Infini EDT
    An original and revolutionary fragrance, Infini combines new aromas like daffodil, tuberose, tonka bean and vetiver, with the usual jasmine, rose and lily of the valley. The sandalwood and musk base create a unique concoction, dedicated to the artistic, subdued and modern woman.



    Montaigne EDP
    This Oriental / Spicy fragrance for women was re-released from the Caron archives. The fragrance was named after the Rue de Montaigne in Paris one of the most elegant streets in the world. This sophisticated scent is composed with top notes of jasmine and lily-of-the valley; heart notes of spicy accords rose and mimosa with an elegant dry down of exotic Indian sandalwood.

    I picked up a 100ml bottle of the Marks & Spencer Rose & Amber EDT yesterday in their sale for £5. It's so crazily similar to Diptyque L'ombre dans l'eau/Baies, and at that price I can afford to use it as a room spray.

    I went back to NYC's perfume district today and bought Trussardi, Silences and Trussardi Skin. The 3 bottles, all 3.3 oz, put me back $60 American.

    Haven't bought anything in probably 3-4 MONTHS, but seeing what everybody else bought this month has got me craving again! Thinking about one of the new Ava Luxes or Andy Tauer. Still waiting for LS to have the new Vero EDP versions.

    Just getting caught up... as I've not purchased any scents for (cough) a couple weeks.

    TJ Maxx "haul" of Halston Z-14 and Nickel Eau Maximum (both of which are fine for the cost, which was minimal)

    A set of all the JHAG samples (that need to be tested -- minus of course Midnight Oud which is exclusive and not sampled out, shame... my sample of MO came from Luckyscent)...

    The aforementioned vintage (but gone off) Lanvin Arpege (sigh... but the bottle is nice, and the juice does seem to make a good "base" for other less tenacious and long-lasting scents)

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache
