    I recently bought Miss Arpels too. Lovely scent. I didn't do as well on the price, though. Enjoy!

    I made an ebay purchase of Emeraude edt, a partial bottle that looks like this.

    It's hard to get info on dating these bottles. There are so many variations. I think the one I bought is 1960s - 1970s. We'll see whether it's any good. If I like it I may look for more.

    Hey this is exactly what I have! What do you think of the fragrance? I like it - Are you in the US? How much does it retail for over there?

    Devil on left shoulder: "You love it- buy it!"
    Angel on right shoulder: "But it's so expensive..."
    "But you love it."
    "i can't find a good deal on Ebay."
    "But you love it."
    "I could use the money to do something good for mankind."
    "But you reeeeally love it - and besides, you can get 15% off on Fragrancenet, with free shipping."
    "Oh. Okay!"


    I'm awaiting my first-ever full-price full-bottle purchase of a fragrance I truly love - Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille, and I couldn't be more excited.

    bookwyrmsmith, you are really going to town on Evil-Bay- you go, girl. I just hope we're not drivin' the prices up bidding against each other. LOL There's a few Marilyn Miglin I enjoy a lot- Goddess, and Divine

    I got some blind buys on Evil-bay since my last post:
    Bosari IL MIO SOGNO Cologne - only one review on BN but it's from foetidus, who has impeccible taste, so i could not resist.
    Jill Sander #4
    Forvil Poeme
    And finally, a reasonably priced Vent Vert I have been wanting one for some months.

    Thought I would join you intrepid ebayers! I bought a one ounce bottle of Niki de Saint Phalle parfum! It was 39.00 and was a steal for the parfum version. Great scent and often available for very little. The bottles themselves are small works of art.

    Miss Dior is a great fave of mine and I hope you love it, bookwyrmsmith, and you can't go wrong with Jil Sander #4, it's just beautiful! Enjoy.

    Okay you convinced me . If Knit_at_nite,Zibeline,and several Bn reviews say Jil sander # 4 is good then it gets off the watch list and into the bid list.

    Mail arrived . Two packages for me . Anne Klein edp 70% full 1.7 oz and Mahora mini 5ml/.17oz-doesn't say what concentration .Mahora does smell like a '80's tuberose to me.Nice,but not what I feel like wearing right now.

    I received my Emeraude pdt today. I think I'm going to be very pleased (I need to try it on its own, not over today's Obsession), except those tangy very top notes are no longer there.

    I bought a Coty L'Aimant Flacon Mist, too, and I'm looking forward to trying that when it arrives. I'm not sure of the vintage, maybe 70s. I can't tell you how I'm reveling in these vintage reekers lately. I know what will happen soon. I will wake up and say "what happened to me?", and the vintage reekers will go on the shelf with the others.
