    ^^ Absolutely. This is a thread for stating what you've bought, not inviting comments as to anyone else's feelings towards it.

    Without revealing specifics:

    The 100ml eagle bottle I bought from a European seller for just a smidge over $100.
    The 100ml Habit Rouge bottle off evilbay for just a smidge under $200.
    (The 125ml Les Parisiennes edition from another Basenoter a few months ago for less than $100).

    Dior Homme Cologne by Christian Dior



    I've been aching for a bottle of this for years now...when I spotted a used bottle for sale here on BN I snapped it up.

    Now that my wardrobe is basically iris free, this finds a very special place. I'm wearing some now and I am reminded of how wonderfully this scent captures the iris note.

    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Couldn't get it out of my head and Dullah likes it, so it's my birthday present to me.

    Break it out in world tomorrow.

    Came close on Midnight in Paris SoGent. It is nice. I do see slight similarity to Bvlgari Black.

    I find the color juice very elegant and fascinating; and the new packaging is not as bad as i though.

    Yeah, I just got a sample vial directly from Creed so I'll be able to do a direct side-by-side and see for sure. If it's fake, well, life goes on! The only things that gave me confidence was the 100% positive feedback and the fact that it's in the new style bottle and packaging, just like the one on Creed's website (with the blue label).

    The Diptyque San Francisco store sent me an invitation to tonight's launch of Eau Duelle, a new vanilla-based scent at their Maiden Lane store. I showed up shortly after the scheduled time to find the store already pretty full. I was invited to have a glass of prosecco and sample some canapés, among them a bit of bleu-cheese and fresh fig pizza, and some cream cheese and cucumber on a foccaccia cube with a bit of caviar sprinkled on top. I scored a sample of their solid perfume for this fragrance, and they also threw in a small rose-scented candle — a couple of what the Cajuns call lagniappes, the shopper's version of party favors.

    Of course, I ended up getting the 50 ml. size of Eau Duelle.

    Diptyque Eau Duelle (2010) Fabrice Pellegrin Oriental
    ------------------
    Top Notes: Pink Peppercorn, Juniper Berries, Cardamom, Elemi •Middle Notes: Frankincense, Calamus, Black Ceylon Tea •Base Notes: Bourbon Vanilla, Haitian Vetiver, Cypriol.
    ------------------
    A nice, fresh opening, a good balance of the top notes. This soon shifts into the middle notes, with the balance here favoring the frankincense note. In the base the vanilla comes on like gangbusters, though the vetiver is there, and the slightly spicy, earthy, wood-like scent of cypriol, the Indian grass also known in Hindi as nagarmotha. The oriental character is very pronounced, and the sillage and longevity are above average, compared to other Diptyques. Interesting, because while almost all orientals have an amber note, it's lacking here, yet this still makes a very convincing oriental presence.
    Yr good bud,

    I also bought a bottle of Pure Malt the other day. I actually tried to cancel it, because I have a small decant, and I was a bit too gung-ho to buy a full bottle, but then I was told the order has already gone through, so I guess I'm stuck with it (which isn't necessarily bad since I really like it, but my wallet isn't too happy...)

    I've just scored a half bottle (75ml) of Creed Epicea off Ebay for £28. It's not something I'd wear very often, so an ideal item/price.

    Second bargain in a week.

    Keep it a few months and sell it for some profit, or swap for something you want. Pure Malt is the equivalent of a $100 bill, its in very high demand

    Wasn't it verified that it's being reissued? I lost track of those threads.

    Anyway, I received by bottle Parfums De Nicolai's New York the other day. And last night I blind ordered Encre Noir.

    As far as i know its not a reissue, more so a stock dumping. I think they cant make any more for a few years since the stuff was aged in casks

    Gotcha, thanks! I just noticed that Beauty Encounter hiked their price on it recently. I expected it to drop if they were truly re-releasing it.
