    I've actually been trying to avoid this thread, but I couldn't help myself. I just bought a bottle of Juliette Has a Gun's beautiful, rosey and sultry Midnight Oud, another contender for my wedding day.


    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    OK, I actually bought these a few days ago, but they arrived today…

    A boxed set of Cuir de Russie parfum, 3 x 7 ml. I opened one of the bottles an hour ago to dab some on, and it smells great so far. Bolder, tarrier and more leathery, but at the same time also softer and rounder.

    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?

    Also samples of:

    I bought 2 50ml bottles of Coty Wild Musk for a TOTAL of US$9.58. Yes -- under $10 for BOTH bottles.

    Musc Ravageur and Muscs Koublai Khan are still my favorite "naughty" musks. (I don't find either of them to be "dirty," but they are DEFINITELY naughty. )

    I love SL's Clair de Musc for a clean musk, but, holy cow, Wild Musk is pretty darn fantastic and, at 1/10 of the price for SL, Wild Musk just has to be my favorite clean musk. I don't see any way around it.

    Also, I've read a number of BN reviews indicating that others find Wild Musk to be very animalic/skanky, but I don't get that at all. Maybe my skank-o-meter is broken, but I think this is just clean (as musks go) and fantastically warm.

    Wow....Mitsouko extrait must be such a wonder.

    Parfum is already heavenly, and I can't imagine what extrait is like.

    Oh...I thought there was a diff.
    So they just called the 'parfum' in the 30s -70s 'extrait'?

    "Extrait" and "parfum" have both been used for a very long time, but nowadays "extrait" is seldom used (on boxes). My feeling is that "extrait" was more commonly used for the French/European market but rarely for the US; I may be wrong though.

    ExtremeKF: I still love Coty's Wild Musk, but only the oil. The cologne hasen't ever lasted for me and I have been wearing it on and off for 25 years. I remember you could get the talc too, but I don't see that anymore. Even the oil is extremely difficult to find outside of the internet. I managed to locate 1 bottle in a local drugstore and grabbed it. Haven't seen it in 20 years, so maybe it's that well aged! I have been wanting to try Sandalwood Musk by Henri Bendel since I am a HUGE sandalwood fan as well.

    It's been another day of researching/reading reviews and succumbing to sample shopping. I bought the following samples from TPC (if they don't know my ship-to information by heart now, it's not for my lack of ordering):

    Serge Lutens Boxeuses (happy, happy, joy, joy, I am SO EXCITED for this one!), Donna Karan Black Cashmere (reissue), Donna Karan Signature EDP (reissue), Donna Karan Essence Wenge, Donna Karan Essence Labdanum, Tom Ford Private Blend Tobacco Vanille, and Givenchy Organza Indecence (reissue).

    I already have a Top 5/Knock Your Socks Off group of fragrances, and another group of 10-15 or so that I REALLY like a lot and can't imagine being without (and are thus FBW even if they fall short of KYSO status), so I'm not sure what possesses me to keep sampling, especially since I have enough samples already to keep me smelling fabulous for at least a year or two. Maybe I'm trying to make up for all that time I lost not wearing fragrance. I don't know. I'm a hopeless addict. And I LOVE it.

    CHRISTOS
    CHRISTOPHER CHRONIS


    I have managed to source an old favourite of mine... the wonderful men's Woody Oriental "Christos" by Greek-Australian designer Christopher Chronis. A scent that was discontinued over a decade ago, it boasts one of the more beautiful glass bottles that I have ever had the pleasure of collecting, in a deep violet hue.


    And in keeping with all that is purple in hue, I also bought Guerlain Purple Fantasy.

    Lovely seeing so many beautiful bottles posted here!

    I'm posting at last about my purchases during the San Francisco get together -- (DH and I just got back to Houston after our vacation in CA)

    From the Guerlain boutique at Neiman's I got Les Elixirs Charnels - Oriental Brulant -- (this is entirely the fault of ubeuandibeme who first sent me a sample of this.) They were out of Apres l'Ondee but will call me, they say, when they get it in! So I hope to get it too, one of these days!

    From Barney's I got Iris Poudre body butter, which I've wanted for some time. It's expensive, but worth it -- it's heavily fragranced. One could wear it alone.

    And, although it was the first time I'd smelled it -- I bought Luten's Bois de Violette, as it was love at first sniff. I've never diminished a bottle so fast, I've already used about 15% of it in just a week and a half! And well, no, it doesn't have great longevity or projection, but when you're in love you overlook a few tragic flaws...

    After San Francisco DH and I made our way through the Sonoma Valley. Due to an unseasonable heat wave -- temps in the 100s! -- we picked up a Styrofoam cooler and some ice for water and soft drinks in the car, and I put my precious purchases and samples in there too, so they wouldn't suffer from the heat. (my DH only occasionally rolls his eyes at the perfume mania... :-)

    Has anyone else wondered (in terms of volume), how much the addition of these glass stones has an impact on the amount of juice in the bottle?

    Today, 2 bottles arrived, both 8 oz sizes: one of them just about full while the other, my first 'bee' Guerlain bottle, is about 1/2 full:

    Was afraid that this vintage Eau de Cologne Imperiale had gone bad, but smells normally citrusy from the bottle.

    The two together cost me less than $65.

    As far as I know the Homage line share the same 50ml bottle as the normal Tauer line however due to the glass beads they only contain 30ml of perfume.
