    I must be on a roll !I won (for $16 + shipping )My Sin Extrait -in box about 1/3-1/2 a bottle! Mom now wants this one and the mini can go in my collection. The Pretexte minis arrived today as described/pictured .They are tiny .I think one of them would fit in the cap of the Tom Ford Black Orchid 100ml .Pretexte smells really great to me related to Toujours Moi and something about it reminds me of Opium in the same way that you can look at a picture of a distant ancestor and see a hint of your mom's chin or dad's nose.
    By the way my Mom tried Pretexte .Now she wants me to hunt some down for her.Oh boy here I go again!

    I saw that item...it's a good score!

    Luckily I haven't been bitten by any urge to hunt down any of the Lanvin rares like My Sin, Rumeur & Pretexte....yet lol

    My budget is already quite stretched by hunting down Guerlains, Balenciagas and Chanels

    I had a delightful day today... Im celebrating my Greek name day and 3 packages landed on my door!

    I received 2 Guerlain Shalimar 30ml extraits, a 15ml extrait of Samsara, and a whopping big goodie bag of Christopher Chronis parfums! It felt as though all my birthdays have come at once!

    I'm going to happily trash up the thread with my cheapie acquisitions!

    A great big bottle of the 1990 Vent Vert from evilBay -- I have a mini and I just love this stuff:




    And from Marshall's:



    And a tiny 1/2-oz. bottle of:



    I had tested the Fleur de Corail once at Sephora, and found it smelled ... kind of weird. Like charcoal. But it was so cheap and the bottle's so cute that I bought it anyway. Well, it DOES smell kind of weird, but I've decided I like it! Sweet, smokey, salty, and rich. A very pleasant cozy fall/winter scent. I don't get the beach imagery at all, go figure.

    Still I blind-bought because it was $10, I like tea scents, and I thought J.Lo's Deseo was lovely. This is very sweet, very fresh (and I'm not a big fan of sweet and fresh). The tea note sometimes smells good and sometimes smells dank, like wet tea leaves left too long in the cup. On my first wearing, do NOT love. But I don't hate it either and will try it again -- it was a rainy day, this might do better in the heat. It won't be a favorite, though, for sure.
    This scent is great, but ... MORE KITTENS!

    I bought Chamade edp and extrait on Ebay. I am learning to love it, so now, of course, I cannot find it in any department store in CT. Is this soon to be on the hit list? Also, I have never tried Scherrer, so I bought that, too, before it is gone for good. I can't stand it! My new bottle of Diorella smells like melon plus "wet dog". Do perfume manufacturers think that blasting a fruity scent will cover up the fact that chypres no longer contain oakmoss?

    Hi vintage*red! My sympathies with you for getting a few misses in your latest haul. This happens to me all the time with eBay (I have been a prolific spender of late but haven't had the time to post pics on this thread).

    Re. Chamade - I hope you do learn to love this one. It's a very beautiful scent with pronounced evolution. Lots of galbanum and hyacinth! I don't imagine it being in department stores very often, but there seems to be plenty floating around in the 'bay.

    Re. Scherrer - (assuming you mean the original Scherrer) - I had wanted that for so long, thanks to good reviews galore. But when I finally got a bottle, I found it horrible too. So glad it was just a mini. It had a specific "dank" note in it that I've also encountered in a few other galbanum-rich older frags such as vintage Bandit and Aliage. I had two identical minis of vintage Vivara (Pucci) - one had the dank note and the other didn't - so I suspect that it's due to a particular ingredient going off. How annoying!

    Re. Diorella - I am currently trying to acquire some for myself on eBay, so I hope I don't get a melon/wet dog version. I am looking at the vintage ones in the houndstooth boxes (tall ribbed bottle with powder blue lid). Did you get the modern version?

    I bought some 1ml vials off an Ebay store( recomended by 30 Roses I believe).I want to be able to share samples with friends and family and maybe swap some later.
    I won a sealed in box1.34 oz bottle of Chanel Eau Premiere with postage only $26 .45 and about half of that was in my Paypal account from the Silences seller refunding on her own initiative $13+ change(this had me worried was the spray destroyed?bottle cracked and the juice leaked into the box?)Silences arrived with only a small grazechip on the bottom front of the bottle.(seller got excellent feedback from me btw)
    I hope the Eau Premiere is authentic.I tried EP on at the mall almost a month ago and at first spray it was just Okay.Cristalle Eau verte on the other wrist .But I kept snuffling the EP (which lasted for a good day,day and a half ) and the memory stuck with me .So I figured -Okay gotta have .Then I kept losing on bids for a few vials .I bid on a low priced bottle -and won !
    I really hope it's authentic.

    I must say I agree with Quarry : it's a really lovely, light rose scent that approximates smelling actual roses!

    My pet Chihuahua was so excited, sniffing all over trying to locate the smell till I offered her my wrist and she sniffed it voraciously! Cute...!

    I'll join you! Picked up a bottle of Rochas Femme in Parfum de Toilette for approximately $5 the other day, about 15% remaining. It is the Olivier Cresp reformulation, but I've never seen it in PdT anywhere and the bottle is different; a rectangular, ribbed column, not the usual curvy Femme bottle. It's gorgeous. I'm pleased.

    I am this close to marching away to NK and get a bottle of M/Mink tomorrow, as well. Byredo are finally doing 50 ml bottles.
