    The date codes under the bottles say 94 U… Could it be so straightforward as to actually mean 1994? I don't know, but my guess is that these are from the 80's or early 90's. I've also seen quite a few spotty labels from that era, maybe because of the adhesive they used?

    Where do you find these vintage Chanel's? How?!

    After a little bit of snooping around, I learned that the Shalimar presentation at the top above is indeed a parfum extrait... the only version of Shalimar parfum being bottled in the bouchon coeur flacon in recent times. For the Xmas 2008 season, it was also released as a 50ml EDT spray. So anyway, I bought it. Its still en route, so unfortunately, no glamourous pics yet.

    My plan to pick up either the Fougere Royale re-release or Guerlain's Arsene Lupine Dandy for my birthday was ruined by neither of those being available yet...

    But I made up for it with a big pile of other stuff!



    A Diptyque Pin Sylvestre candle - now back in stock for Christmastime.




    Sisley Eau de Campagne, in a gift set with complimentary shower gel. I'd been putting off buying this forever and the gel finally convinced me...




    And Jacqueline had a hidden stash of Amouage candles, so I picked up Autumn Leaves, as well as another Parfums Regence. This time I picked up Santal.

    It was only Shalimar that was released in a parfum concentration that Xmas, Pour_Monsieur. L'Instant Magic and Insolence were released as EDTs and EDPs in the spray bottles.
    Are you sure the Shalimar you bought mum was EDP or was it EDT? Im only asking because there is a lot of confusing information out there about these releases, which I am only just now starting to get my head around (well, attempting to at least)...

    Today I was delighted to receive my Guerlain Derby Aftershaves (one a 100ml spray and one a 50ml splash). I have been keen to test them agains the EDT in terms of their persistence. My supplier was very kind to have also sent me a couple of EDT minis

    Unfortunately I may have to wait until my head cold has subsided before I can smell the A/S properly. My nose is working at about 80% right now.
    Are there any other basenoters that have used the A/S and the EDT enough to comment on their similarities/differences?

    Caught one on eBay after purchasing 2 100ml bottles. They threw in a 4ml mini as well. Great price! They had JUST put it up on eBay. Made sure the cap was white, and it was. I also bought samples of Penhaligon's Endymion, Idole de Lubin, and Amouage Dia Man.

    Well I have been really good this month. Toning down the fragrance expeditures. So far in October:

    Caron pour un Homme - oh my I love this one. So perfect.
    Chanel Antaeus - non-vintage, which I actually prefer over the much-loved vintage version
    Chanel Pour Monsieur - not the Concentree version, it's the original, hard-to-find one; found it at a great price
    Tabac EdC - around $20 for a 10 oz. bottle that looks a lot like a bowling pin
    Caron L'Anarchiste - around $20 for a 1.7 oz bottle and box that are among the most beautiful in all perfumery. And the scent is quite appropriate for fall.

    Might be in Chicago on Saturday. I'm contemplating a proper fragrance buying binge. I'm thinking niche time. . .

    Did some blind buying, someone dropped off a bunch of vintage sealed Avon ones at a thift store, so I bought the long discontinued Tai Winds and Spicy aftershave (also bought a Wild Country, which was much stronger and had better sillage in the old days even though it smells identical, even the aftershave is stronger than the current cologne variant).

    Also bought a bottle of BOD $$$ spray on clearance at Target after spraying on my stepson, god its strong. It lingers forever for $4 in an 8oz bottle. A little more complex than your average BOD but highly synthetic. Also got a bottle of original Polo as it was on clearance.

    Stopped in to pick up a bottle of Clubman aftershave and bought a bottle of Master Bay Rum. Haven't tried it yet, will do so when I shave tomorrow, see how it stacks up against the Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum.

    Edit: I'm not really sure about Aoud Damascus. I really like the opening of it though. Might have to let go of AD. I like more the Attar. =(
    oh well.

    Edit: This is a nice frag. But it's just not me. I had to let it go. I sold my Aoud Damascus already. =(

    Will be interested to hear your thoughts on Aoud Damascus, volley2.

    Well, after being told they had no more HdP 1725 a week ago the one supplier here turned up 3 x 14mls and kept them aside for me - not exactly cost effective (compared to buying a 120ml bottle) but taking into account overseas prices and the fact that there is no guarantee they will restock here it's still well worth it, and 14ml is a great size for travelling.

    Jenson quietly predicted in a review that he thought 1725 would become a cult classic or words to that effect and I agree 100%. It's a beautiful piece of work.

    I'm not sure it is at all Macy's. The Macy's I was at (Water Tower Place) had a Lush section. Of the Gorilla line, they had Tuca Tuca, Imogen Rose, The Smell of Freedom, and Lust, plus Karma and Vanillary re-branded as Gorilla. The SA said other scents would follow in a month or so.
