" I think part of my success as an editor came from never worrying about a fact, a cause, an atmosphere. It was me—projecting to the public. That was my job. I think I always had a perfectly clear view of what was possible for the public. Give 'em what they never knew they wanted." DiANA VREELAND
an 80 ml bottle of the original Zen from Evil-Bay
I happened to stop by my local Marshall's where I found 3.4oz. Cabaret EDP and Sexual 2.5 oz, which wound up costing me a total of $23 for both, not each, but for both. Amazing!
H,. the "other" one is a mossy fruity chypre, gorgeous without being pretentious, soft and with dignity, old school even. My former bottle lives at Tao's now. PM her if she can send you a small decant. Please do not say I advised you to.
Thanks for the info, Miz T! Sounds nice! Unpretentiousness is a quality I really like in a fragrance. :-)
Jacomo Silences 25 ml PdT based on the reviews/threads here. On the way to me....
There are 2 reasons for my post here...first of all, I ordered Annick Goutal's Songes 3.4 oz edt
Secondly, it was such an unbelievable deal - you all should know about it.
(Mind you, I haven't received this yet, just ordered it)
The price? Well, that's the CRAZY deal ~ $9.97 Yep, and the shipping/handling was $3.80
My total bill for this purchase - $13.77
Where can one snag such an incredible fragrance find? www.buy.com They have 6 more left.
So if anyone is looking for Songes, this price is SO GOOD I feel it's worth the risk!
I'll post when I receive mine,
Recently received in a swap: Ormonde Woman, plus decants of Mythique, Bois des Iles, Bois d'Iris, Vetiver pour Elle, and AA Foliflora.
And just bought some CSP Vanille Extreme.
It feels good to be back in the game.
L`Air du Desert Marocain got a sample of it and loved it. Bought it from Luckyscent. Be here Next Wed.
