    I've been ebay scavenging. I bought vintage Coty Emeraude pdt, vintage L'Aimant flacon mist, a mini of Raphael Réplique parfum, a vintage No. 5 cologne spray in the black case, and My de Myrurgia edt made in Barcelona (I have no idea what this one is like but I decided it should be mine). These are the first purchases I've made in ages, I think.

    Been a while since I posted on this thread! Yesterday, my package of samples came - mostly Les Exclusifs, a Malle (Iris Poudre), Diorama, plus TWO free Caron samples. How nice!

    I love reading about the finds on eBay, btw!

    Today I got Mitsouko extrait and more samples . I am trying out the black tea scents - anything remotely similar to Earl Grey and /or Lapsong Suchong.

    Have you tried L'Artisan Coeur de Vétiver Sacré yet (I haven't)? A friend said it smelled like Lipton Iced Tea.

    Hi Joe- thanks for the suggestion - I haven't tried this one.
    I ordered Tea for Two because it gets so many raves and I just love my lapsong suchong. Heard a lot about Parfumerie Generale's 2 Matale scents so I got those too.

    Just got my 8 ml dose of Chanel Bois des Illes today...

    Smells a little familiar, as though I have smelt it on some rich middle-aged ladies some years ago,probably in the context of parties held by relatives or sumthing.

    That association sort of ruins the anticipation for me, but hopefully not for long!

    I bought two samples from The Perfumed Court: Diptyque Eau Duelle and SL Boxeuses.

    The Boxeuses is spendy for a 1ml sample, but I've been SO curious about it. Plum + leather sounds SO perfect for me!

    Today I clicked the BIN button twice, on a 4ml bottle of Chanel Cuir de Russie EDT and a 15ml bottle of Balenciaga Quadrille parfum, both at a 25% discount for a limited time.

    I have bought from this seller before, but the Quadrille was a bit of an impulse buy, although it is completely sealed in it's original box and wrapping paper.Therein lay the attraction!

    Also the CdR buy completes my quest for all the great Chanels, a bit of a compromise since my BdI & CdR are only in EDT concentration.

    I will enjoy opening the wrapped box of Quadrille carefully when it arrives!

    The other day I bought a decant of Boxeuses as well. I've read references to Fem du Bois as its takeoff point, and several reviewers cite reminders of Cuir de Russie and Femme. Plus there's supposedly a licorice note which for me just sealed the deal. Can't help it, I'm a Lutens groupie.

    So far this month, I have purchased Smell Bent Prairie Nymph, a partial bottle of CdG Luxe Champaca ♥, and the new EDT version of Prada Infusion d'Iris which I much prefer over the EdP.

    A blind buy of Cristobal by Balenciaga and a second back up bottle of Cologne Du 68 by Guerlain both on Evil- bay.

    Yes, yes, I am crazily obsessed with the beautifully fresh, yet spicy, Cologne du 68, but this purchase was less than half of the retail price. What's the expression about "going broke saving money?"

    In the mail today: an empty 8.5 oz bottle of L'Heure Bleue EDT with about 2 ml of the juice still inside, a sealed 15ml rosebud amphore of Shalimar from the 50s, a 70% full 6 oz bottle of Shalimar EDC(smells more concentrated than the current EDPs), and a tiny 1/4 oz bottle of Mitsouko extrait from the 80s complete with box.Lastly, a 1/2 oz bottle of Coty Imprevu, about 68% full.


    These items weren't cheap, but I feel strangely giddy today...hehe

    And also, I smell strongly of Shalimar after I took a thick cloth dipped in alcohol to clean the perfume smears from the large conical stopper bottle.

    Some ob-scent-vations : LHB EDT hardly smells like the extrait...& Mitsouko extrait(or is it parfum?) smells so strongly of peach!
