    I expect La Myrrhe, Sarrasins and yet another back-up bell jar of Chergui to arrive today... in the pre-holiday commotion today I will only be able to quickly dab my wrists though. Upon my return lovely samples from dr.creed and another real treat from gerald will await me.

    L'Eau Au Masculine - Lolita Lempicka



    First impressions: this is going to be one successful and popular frag. Ticks a lot of boxes (except weak and wimpy) for a very broad demographic. Fantastic scent.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    BVLGARI - EAU PARFUMEE AU THE ROUGE
    Very good scent ! Wasn't so much impressed by the "vert" version and found the "blanc" a bit too feminine for my taste. This one has something deep and really earthy, doing well its tea-scent job since it reminds me a teabag, a good black tea bag I guess. There's also something very comfortable in this one, and I always appreciate this feature in a fragrance. However, it's not as clean as the other two, and I find it rather strong (for a Bvlgari fragrance).
    I have to admit it could maybe suit a woman better, but it's not too much feminine though, and I'll wear it proudly.
    I'm totally fan of the bottle design btw.

    Just ordered online:
    • Bois Farine (finally, it's been on my wishlist for ages)
    • Guerlain Homme Intense (for my partner)
    • Yatagan (yeah, buying this blind, so I'm counting on you all to be my support group if it ends in tears)

    I have high hopes for the Yatagan, actually. I "needed" one low-priced item to bump my order into the $25-off category at beautyencounter.com. Was back and forth between Yatagan and Mitsouko, which would also have been a blind buy. Clicking "submit" on my order was a bit of an out-of-body experience.

    Can't get the pictures to show, but the link is there

    Vintage Vol de Nuit in parfum concentration. Somehow, this classic invokes a certain melancholy that brings back sad memories.... I can almost empathize with Jacques Guerlain when he learnt of Saint-Exupery's death...

    Today I bought a big bottle of Polo Modern Reserve for A$37.50, two 100ml bottles of Bogart PH for A$17.50 each, and golf ball lip balm thingy for three dollars. These were the prices after the 40% discount.

    It was 30% off the already reduced prices if I bought three items at Perfume Connection, which I was about to pay for. But the helpful sales girl said why don't I buy the lip balm for A$5, which would make it four items and 40% off the total. So I paid the extra A$5 which in turn reduced the total price by A$12.60.

    Arithmetically, a good purchase.

    I also bought 11 bottles of various women's perfumes at another store, for use as gifts on my next overseas trip.

    Twas the first time I saw this in a store in here in Manila (Philippines) so I bought it right away, it wasn't expensive anyway Good handy size too, the 30ml I can take anywhere. Some might say it smells "old" -- but old or not, the bottle is already worth the price tag haha

    Eau de Shalimar by Guerlain



    This was a blind buy for me, which I rarely do. But...I'm a big fan of Shalimar and it is summer, so this seemed like a no-brainer for me. The reviews are not promising, but I think a light, sheer, modern take on Shalimar might be a little easier to spray on in this humid temperature we're experiencing down here. ((crossing fingers))

    Vermeil pour Homme - because it is a little known classic and very very fabulous.
