    Default What are you buying yourself for Christmas?

    I always buy myself something nice. This year it's Creed Cuir de Russie (flacon deal I found), Halston Man Amber (BN raves got the best of me), and Chanel Coromandel (BN strikes again). I was very good this year, so of course I deserve all this nice stuff.

    I always ask my friends this same question. You were good this year too, right? What are you buying yourself?

    Nice buys mrcologneguy! I wish Santa would bring ME some Chanel Coromandel!

    I bought myself Guerlain's Eau de Lit and Habit Rouge Sport Gentleman Driver Edition.
    Well, in all honesty I kinda just keep buying stuff, so I can pretty much rationalize every purchase with "its a gift to myself for Xmas". However, in this case I'm happy to have these two wrapped and under the Xmas tree!

    My first present to myself this month was a bottle of Etro's Gomma. I just got a ton of decants and samples, so I may just be groovin on those for awhile.

    Everything.

    I've reached a fragrance obsession stage where I get po'ed at all the great things I smell that cost so much money that I just buy 'em anyway....regardless of the financial effects on me.
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    My word, there are some wonderful gifts to selves in this thread.

    I'm getting myself my first full bottle of Borneo 1834. I've relied on samples and tiny decants until now. I long to have a bottle, and what better time to do it than Christmas. I buy all year round, but this will be extra-special for having waited so long for a bottle of Borneo.

    Going with the Flacon of Aventus now that I gave it a half wearing. Also since I can get it shipped free 3 day from the site, I will try to see if the SA can maybe hook me up some samples if I order it in town vs mail. I love those free samples!

    Reminds me I have no way of decanting or spraying it once I do buy it lol, time to shop a bit more.

    This thread really cheers me up. Look at all this great stuff we're enjoying. Really gets me into the true spirit of getting for Christmas. A bunch of the stuff listed here gives me evil ideas. . . like maybe I was better than I thought. So I deserve, say, the nice Clive Christian box set that MikeNY selected for himself. Nice choice.

    Happy Holidays to the Basenoters!

    I haven't done it yet, but I'm seriously thinking of buying Amouage Epic Man. I have never bought a fragrance as expensive as this, but I like it so much that I think it's time to treat myself.

    I might also go for a Histoires de Parfums travel threesome with 1740, 1828, and maybe Noir Patchouli (still undecided on the third selection), another purchase I have been pondering that would be a nice Christmas present to myself.
