    I hesitated to post this last week but...I bought a monster flacon of Creed FdTRB last Monday. It was the only one they had at the Creed boutique, brought in from Paris. Photo is in my albums.
    I still can hardly believe it.

    Wow - good for you 30 Roses! I was under the impression that it had been discontinued, so I'm glad you got it while it's available (do you know what the story is with that, btw?)
    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

    A fellow BNer tried to get some at Neiman Marcus and they were sold out throughout the USA. Saks had one bottle somewhere in their system which they set aside for her. No official announcement from Creed that I am aware of-- the website shows it as "temporarily out of stock"-- but I think the handwriting is on the wall.

    Like Kewart, I picked up Les Néréides Douceur De Vanille for a fiver. I think that ought to conclude my LN collection, unless I stumble on a big bottle of Patchouli Antique!

    Whilst waiting for perhaps more exciting arrivals to clear the Xmas post backlog, today my 2 Guerlain atomisers arrived: empties given by Guerlain so you can fill them with your favourite scents.

    I promptly filled mine with vintage Vol de Nuit extrait, and Guerlain's Cuir de Russie extrait <3 Both normally in a "dab on" bottle.

    Today I bought a 100 ml bottle of Eau Sauvage from StrawberryNET. I tried it for the first time a few days ago, and thought it, as Sonia Lovecraft described her husband's love-making, 'excellently adequate.' Two-dimensional, indeed rather flat, but discreet, and having a brisk note of something like wormwood. Probably the vetiver. I appreciate its lack of powder.

    Needed a little retail therapy tonight- found a 50 ml of Guerlain Champs-Elysee EDT on clearance for $24 at TJ Maxx.

    Also a 75 ml bottle of Deauville by Michel Germain for $12.99. Nice inoffensive office scent.

    Today Im rather excited...finally the Xmas mail backlog seems to be coming through, and I received 3 new perfumes!

    First was my much anticipated vintage Guerlain "Pois de Senteur" 70ml extrait (1917) in the Flacon Carré... it smells unlike anything I'd imagined!! Deeply honeyed and civety with very velvety nuances... obviously with a smiling sweet pea heart.
    I had hoped this could be reviewed in my most recent "5 Rare Guerlains in 5 Days" series, but it came a little late. I will review it shortly anyhow.



    Second, I purchased another Guerlain "Cuir de Russie" Stilboide fluid... I have fallen completely for Guerlain's Russian Leather interpretation, and simply wouldn't want be without it!



    And finally, I bought a 50ml 1980s Chanel "Antaeus" After Shave... it is everything I had hoped it might be, very potent, and with persistence much like the EDTs of today. The original formula can't be beaten, regardless of the concentration.

    Sorcery of scent - your 'new purchases' post are complete eye-candy! Hoping you're able to do another Rare Geurlain series as I really enjoyed the last one!

    My new purchase (which seems a little less exciting by comparison) is a bottle of Agent Provocateur Strip - it's a lovely warm, slightly spicy amber-y scent. Too much for the humid weather we've been having but I'll no doubt be all over this when it gets cold again.

    Some Shalimar edt, yesterday. Shalimar and I have finally turned a corner. This is a fragrance I have been trying hard to understand (and love) for a long time and, after testing for the umpteenth time, I feel I do. Do you think speaking about a fragrance as if it is a person is the sign of a serious problem?

    Sorcery of Scent, I love that Guerlain fluted column spray cologne bottle. That was my first bottle of Shalimar, years ago. I loved the way it sprayed (loved the scent, too, of course!).

    Today I purchased Quartz by Molyneux, a fragrance I've been wanting. I hope it doesn't disappoint when it arrives. I remember it from years ago, and Basenoters say it's still good. That's one on my 2011 wish list. Only around 98 more to go!

    Lilybelle, the Vol de Nuit EDC bottle pictured sprays very generously, but I have another (Eau de Verveine) that drizzles inside the gold casing when sprayed and only wets my hand! Its eternally frustrating!

    Today some of my Ebay purchases arrived :Prada eau Tendre mini,Infusion d'Iris mini.From another seller a half full half ounce bottle of Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet. I also got my order of 1.5 ml vials from ACCESSORIES FOR FRAGRANCES seattle_4-so I can start a sample passaround in February.
    On a mostly off topic -I went into Avenue(womens size store) to make a credit payment.I had a couple of coupons with me and ended up leaving the store with a new coat(sage green quilted microfiber) and a sweater(acrylic teal blue pullover) for 90 cents!(grand total after tax!)
    This is semi on topic 'cause A. this is how I afford so many perfumes -buy other things on super sales!
    and B. some web based+brick and mortar retailers sell perfumes too-often under Accesories.I haven't purchased from their website yet but the selection looks pretty good .Has anyone shopped from such a site ?

    Today I learned what weakness on the knees was...

    I never (but NEVER) liked No5... Too sharp, too aldehydic, too MUCH!! Last week I dreamed I was trying it and loving it and I thought the subconscient was playing tricks one me, so today, remembering my dream, I decided to go and try all concentrations... EdT, too sharp... EdP, just right!!!! But just in case, I tried the parfum too. At first I thought it was too sharp as well, so I decided to purchase a 30ml of EdP. So here I am, asking for it when I am told they don't have it in stock!! Bummed, I say thank you and go to another favorite store of mine and ask for it. In the meanwhile, something was smelling too good around me... And it WASN'T the wrist where I put the EdP that I so eagerly was going to buy... It was my other wrist, where I had sprayed the parfum!!

    Me goes back to the store, me asks I have changed my mind and me asks how much is the 7.5ml flacon...

    The rest is history... I'm home with my brand new and first extrait ever... From a perfume I've always hated and that now absolutely adore...

    I can't stop sniffing my left wrist, where the extrait is...
