Paco Rabanne Black XS
I know... I know. It's well documented that it's well-hated here. But on my skin, it does well. Out of the bottle, I've hated this too.

Soooo happy with yesterday's purchases! I hit Saks, Nieman Marcus and Bloomingdales with nothing in mind. Ended up with recommendations from the SAs! I never do that!
Van Cleef and Arpels "Midnight in Paris" - just beautiful. A softer, classier Bulgari Black. Gorgeous bottle, too.
Victorinox Swiss Unlimited - I never would have thought I'd flip over this. It's like an outdoorsman's Lolita Lempicka.
Andy Warhol Silver Factory - picked up the bonbon for this awesome juice. Was waiting for cooler weather. Lovin it.
M7 50ml Vintage Formula, finally arrived today!
Millesime Imperial 17 oz flacon
Etra 100 ml
Gomma 100 ml
Palais Jamais 8.25 oz engraved bottle
Etra and Gomma are blind buys, Palais Jamais is a backup bottle after being very impressed by my earlier 100 ml. blind buy of it, and the Millesime Imperial is my finally breaking down and buying it from an authorized Creed dealer after having twice been disappointed buying it at online discounters. The difference in quality is like night and day.
At yesterday's BN meet-up in San Francisco:
Serge Lutens - Gris Clair
Annick Goutal - Ninfeo Mio
And for my partner, Costume National Homme
My friend is in Paris right now. And I have asked her to get me a bottle of Montale. I posted in another thread to help me decide which one to get and I chose..........................and she just purchased it right now.......
Aoud Damscus 100ml
Now I can't wait for her to get back here to Shanghai! hahahahaha
Thank you for all the help guys!
YSL M7 Fresh
Today a kind BN'ers gift to me arrived: a rare 15ml Guerlain "Vetiver Seduction Spray" atomiser to match my Habit Rouge one!
Dimitri those are just **adorable**. They sort of remind me of pencil erasers. Filled with cologne. LOL
Friday I got my bottle of TM Pure Malt and today had to pick up a bottle of original A*Men.
Azzaro Pour Homme "Lounge Edition" (Frag, Aftershave Balm, Deodorant,Shampoo) & John Varvatos Vintage
Terre 100ml Gift Set at an incredible price tag!!
My tastes are becoming more mature and demanding, i need more quality and more mature scents to feel good, and that's why is bought Habit Rouge.
Chanel Cuir de Russie, vintage parfum from the period 1970-1985 (if I understand my Chanel bottles correctly)
