    Default Today I Bought.... JANUARY 2011 !!!

    New Year, and I fired quite spontaneously...
    Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur has crossed my path too often. I know Jicky in all concentrations I think and like it, but I never felt the urge to own a full bottle.
    I think MdM is much more my style and a rather safe blind buy... anyway, time for something from the men's section for me
    PS: Vintage packaging it was, should be even better then.

    Hi Larimar! Happy new year to you! I'm a big fan of Jicky too and I always associate it with winter. I even wore it yesterday to celebrate the coming of the new year My cousin literally said, "Oh my God! Oh my God! You smell faaaabulous!" Yup...Jicky does that to people! You're gonna be extra happy with MdM. I always wear it in the hottest of the summer months. Enjoy!

    Hi scent! My best wishes for a great new year for you as well! Funny, our paths are crossing again... you sure must be a fabulous smelling chap! I'd befriend you again in an instant. Look forward to my MdM very much, yes!

    Mmmmh, need to revisit No.22 since it left quite an impression on me, although Chanel is tough for me (not my style usually)!

    Just hit 'buy' on some Extravagance d'Amarige, the 'Mythical' reissue. I have the original in the curvy bottle and red Amarige-style packaging (even though the juice is nothing like Amarige IMO), but my curiosity about the new one got the better of me.

    I've just gotten home from one of my friend's house.
    She had called me, and said she had a surprice for me.
    She'd remembered me talking about this frag some time
    ago, and had bought me 100ml ... yay, how sweet!

    Duckie, what a great friend!

    My 1st purchase of 2011: Chanel Coromandel, the 2.5oz. from Chanel.com. Begged Customer service to PLEASE get the others down-sized ASAP. Still want 28 La Pausa and Bel Respiro! Not everybody lives next door to a boutique, after all.

    My boss gave me Idol Moments for a late Christmas gift-it smells of undefined berries and Iso E super /cedarish -it's okay .
    Went thrifting and bought Sunrise by Avon (similar to EA Sunflowers)$.27 also bought a practically brand new scratchy post for my three kittys for $3.26! A Late Meowwy Christmas!
    At the other Thrift shop I bought a set of EA Sunflowers $2,and a bottle of CA Woman by Chris Adams smells a lot like Idol Moments but with more fruit.
    Returned unwanted duplicates back to TJ Maxx and now I have $41 and nothing there is grabbing me -when I'm broke then everything will yell BUY ME NOW!

    Despite a resolution not to buy much in the way of perfume this
    year and to enjoy what I already have, I couldn't resist a bottle of
    Douceur De Vanille (Les Nereides) for £5 in TKMAXX!
    I never can resist a bargain.

    I just committed to buy a full, sealed vintage 1/4 oz. bottle of Youth Dew parfum, and a half full 30 ml bottle of vintage Miss Dior, EdT, probably 70's or 80's. I already own Youth Dew in a couple of concentrations, parfum among them, so it seems I'm officially hoarding vintage back-up bottles now. Damn.
    Youth Dew in parfum is one of the most sumptuous, decadent things it has ever been my pleasure to smell, though, so clearly I need more of it. And the bottle is pretty, too.

    I am really looking forward to adding Miss Dior to my wardrobe as well, although it will probably break my heart - I do enjoy the current version, after all.

    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

    Can't believe I just spent $85 on SAMPLES from LS.
    (Of course, it includes several Xerjoffs, but still...)

    Speaking of samples, I would rather pay an extra dollar or so and get a spray sample vs a dabber.

    Some facial products from Sephora and received a free mini of Fresh Citron de Vigne as well as samples of Stella, Prada L'Eau Ambrée, and Lady Million. Not much, but I haven't had any new frags to try in a while. I already had two of those samples, so happy to swap if someone wants them.

    I liked it as soon as I sprayed it on skin... On paper, it's even louder... On skin, or at least on mine, it's a very ripe fig near the shore evolving to fig tree woods... Just like if you were sitting under a fig tree near the beach (do they even grow there???)...

    Do give it a second chance... Might grow into you...
