Thread: Today I Bought - September 2010
My first bottle of Mitsouko!!! Okay, not vintage but it is really wonderful. 75 ml of EDP from Overstock.com was $59.
Play for Her by Givenchy, Calyx by Prescriptives, Cabotine by Gres, Oxygene by Lanvin, L by Lolita Lempicka, Cabotine Fleurs by Gres. Got samples for Poppy by Coach & Tresor in Love by Lancome. Tried Radiance by Britney Spears, Fancy Nights by Jessica Simpson, Tease by Britney Spears, I'd buy the Fancy Nights, but neither of the other two.
I lost /was outbid on all my bids for one seller except one which is most likely for my mom -Jessica McClintock new in box $8.50+shipping (5or 6)
Flea market finds from today:
50ml Givenchy Play Intense, EdT, full and boxed
30ml Kingdom by McQueen, EdP, approx. 25ml left
20ml Dior Addict, EdP, as good as full
3,5ml Spellbound by Estée Lauder, parfum, full
200ml Ysatis, Voile Soyeux pour la Corps (silk body lotion)
Nice one on the Dior and Kingdom Duc!
Was it an EDT or EDP?
That you did, sir!
(You "swallowed" the "P" in EDP in your first post... thats why I asked)
I've just won this vintage motherf**king box set off the Bay a couple of minutes ago.
My heart is still beating like crazy. I have had my eyes on this gem for 8 days now, and
I needed to own it, no matter the cost ... it did get more expensive than I'd wanted
it to get, but, I just had to have this in my collection.
Was it any of you guys, who I bidded against?! Too bad, loser!
They also had #3,and Silk Ribbons in the Directory and four limited edition with Gunne Sax scents jasmine,mango,vanille,?rain or something pale green ?,and Always and Forever. By checking the website I found they had one called Brilliance.
My Y-YSL and Samsara Shine would be here tomorrow except for some holiday we call "Labor Day" where I will work and get time and a half and the mail as far as I know won't be delivered ! Decidedly mixed feelings about this here.
I bought a bottle of Cashmere Mist Liquid Nude edp after finishing off a sample and wishing I had more. I also bought the Cashmere Mist deodorant.
Today my two vintage Derby's arrived! I have to say they look splendid, next to my Les Parisiennes reissue.
Let me attempt to translate the label on the left:
To open the bottle, hold the stopper(?) and turn it lightly.To close the bottle, attach(?) the stopper well and lightly turn it
Ok ok...I self-learnt whatever little French I tried to know...
Chinatown is finally mine :-)
It was on my wishlist for far too long.
Actually it was yesterday, but I finally bought a full bottle of Mitsouko by Guerlain. Also, Sensuous Noir by Estee Lauder and Armani Mania by Giorgio Armani.
I bought Hanae Mori EDP! I cant wait for the fall/winter to hit!
To be successful, you must smell successful! THATSMR2USIR
Just won on Evil-Bay INEKE After My Own Heart EDP, 75ml, 95% full, with original box
Unsniffed! But sounds delightful:
The scent of fresh lilacs floating on the early evening breeze. Top notes of bergamot, raspberry and crisp green foliage, with a middle note of lilac on a base of sandalwood, heliotrope and musk.
And it cost (except for shipping) about the same as the very mediocre meal I had at a very over-hyped retaurant last night.
Ubuandibeme has got me super curious about The Smell of Weather Turning now.
OMG....How can one not fall in loooove with this bottle?!
It came to me on Thursday, but I still can't stop fingering it...
A stunning vintage example domperrier. Is there anything inside?
