    So I have been finding some decent deals recently in a certain spot both new with wholesale prices and a few lightly used/unopened things, too. Like just recently a Le Male gift set and just yesterday a used 2.4 Cool Water that was still 90% there for $10. Which I must say is a revolting stench to me and can't figure out why anyone likes it let alone be so popular but so be it, something for everyone I guess. I wonder what will I do with this since it's not something I'll wear....evar! Maybe just gift it to a friend...... one who I never see...evar!!!!! LOL

    Last night as I'm putting my head down to rest I think to myself, how I'd love to score a bottle of Creed or something like that cheap. Of course my second thought is who's gonna have a bottle of Creed and not want it? Heh.....I know one of the few I really liked when testing was the Original Santal. I remember I did like a few more but that was the only one the name stuck with me.

    So I wake up this morning and look at my various places I try to score some good frags cheap and well what do you know there is a 1oz bottle of Creed Original Santal with just a couple spritz out of it for $40....and I scoop it up. Lucky dog I am! Whoduthunkit? I'm not gonna wear this very often. It'll be a special occasion one. I really, really like it now that I had the chance to smell the dry down on my skin. It's a perfect match for my body chemistry.

    I also came across a new 3.4 bottle of Versace Dreamer for $40 as well. Which I tested a couple days ago and really liked it, the opening can be a bit of a jolt to the nose but the dry down is unlike anything I think I've smelled before from a frag. It's truly a tale of two scents with this one. I was surprised to come across this about $20 less than full retail just days after I sampled it and decided I like it.

    I've got a few more on my immediate buy list but I might have to wait a couple weeks to get them as the funds make itself available. Unless scorching deals come my way again which I won't rule out.... I will keep them in my 'dreams' again maybe I'll get lucky. Or I could dream of a cheap 2.4 bottle of Creed...hhhmmmmmmmmm

    Yesterday, actually. I was at Barneys, where the day before I had sniffed it, and went back to buy:

    Parfums DelRae Coup de Foudre (2010) Yann Vasnier Fresh Floral
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Pink Peppercorns, Lemon, Pink Grapefruit •Middle Notes: Rose de Mai, Peony, Jasmine, Magnolia •Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Vetiver, Moss, Musk
    ------------------
    Starts of with a very pronounced centifolia rose note, sharpened by citrus and musk. It gives an immediate "lady's handbag" impression, and the first time I tried it on my skin, that put me off so much that I wrote it off as "not for me." After just five or ten minutes, however, that impression completely disappears, leaving a balanced, fresh and beautiful rose de mai floral perfume with fresh accents. That stage lasts a while, and then it slowly fades, keeping the citrus notes in play along with the rose and base notes, while the other florals take a back seat. Sillage is killer at first, becoming more moderate during the middle stage, and then this becomes a skin scent. Vasnier has done a great job of blending this. I only wish the middle stage lasted longer and it didn't drop off so steeply in sillage toward the end, but given the quality of this juice, that's not so bad. By that point, you'd want to be pretty close to your honey anyway, I guess...

    The only issue I have with the older bottles is that the spray releases quite a punch, I'd liken it to a Creed spray. The newer bottles spray out just the right amount. Just something to take note of, in case.

    Paco Rabane Tenere

    Blind buy, USD 20. I didn't realise till I got home that this is discontinued, I'd just seen it mentioned in the same breath as Insense and other interesting 80s scents and was keen to try it. It has a pretty rough and tumble opening but that seems to be par for the course with some of the 80s ones, but already I'm enjoying it and just happy for the lucky find.The spray mechanism is a disaster - it might just as well be a splash - it's like taking a shower in the stuff.

    After hemming and hawing for days, I went ahead and bought two bottles from the limited-edition Six Scents series: No. 3: The Spirit of Wood by Philippe Paparella-Paris for designer Cosmic Wonder, from Series 1; and No. 5: Nicoll No. 17 by Rodrigo Flores-Roux for designer Richard Nicoll, from Series 2.

    The latter is one of the most beautiful dry-herbal scents I've ever encountered, and I would have snapped it up immediately except that its longevity is quite poor. However, I can't get the memory of it out of my head, and ultimately I decided that that's the kind of longevity that matters most. (Plus I got both bottles half price at the Apothia sale!)

    Replacement bottles of YSL Jazz and M7 at a small fragrance counter in a mall. These are getting harder to find, and my original bottles are getting closer to empty... plus the M7 looks old enough to be pre-reformulation.
