    Creed 2000 Fleurs from Xmen. He is a godsend- what would I do without Xmen and his grand sale ???

    This is more or less a blind buy for me- yeah ,shocking behavior from Mims .
    I believe I tried this one at Neimans in Vegas but honestly, it escapes my memory . I could have tried Creed's Fantasia de Fleurs whatsit by Creed too so I could be confused.......now, people, if this is not a good jus, please don't tell me now. I want to smell like their ad copy - 2000 flowers and the 21st century woman .

    I've dithered about Chanel No. 22 for ages, but finally bought it today from a Chanel boutique in London, just have to wait for it to arrive now. They included a sample of No. 22 and a couple others when I bought Gardenia last time, which got me hooked, I wonder what they'll thow in this time.

    Ordinarily I would not brag about this, but I can tell you guys because you understand -- I bought a set of Dana minis at Big Lots. It has Navy (which used to a Cover Girl fragrance), Heaven Sent, Chantilly, and Tabu in the little violin bottle. Navy was pretty awful when I tried it yesterday, but I tried it again today (I couldn't resist) and it was less awful. I can see where it might have been nice at one time, and I read online somewhere that Boucheron is the way to go if you're looking for this type of fragrance. I tried the Chantilly and I liked that one. Very soft & clean smelling powdery/floral/amber, not obnoxious at all. I would wear that after a warm shower in the evening to get cozy in. Heaven Sent reminds me a bit of a cheapo Estee by Estee Lauder. Everybody knows what ole Tabu smells like. My next purchase, whatever it will be, can only be a step up.

    I'm so excited! I finally got my hands on a bottle of Iris Silver Mist!
    A friend bought it back from Paris for me yesterday...and it includes a set of the solid samples of the non-export line.

    Congrats C Rose! Looks wonderful.

    I needed a little TLC after a very tough WEEK 1 of 2011. Hoping the rest of the year does not follow this trend.

    Stopped by the mall for a 10 minue mall-mash chair massage- (you know the type where they dig their elbows into your pressure points unil you cry for mercy- LOVE!) Then ran into BBW and checked out the Lemon Vanilla 30 Roses mentioned was on 75% sale. I reminded me of L'Occitane Honey & Lemon so I picked up a bottle of spray and shower gel.

    I just got home from my first flea market this year,
    and my oh my, I got lucky ... as usual!

    109ml Monsieur de Givenchy, vintage EdT splash
    50ml Joséphine de Rancé 1795, EdP
    40ml Asja de Fendi, EdT (man, that flacon is U.G.L.Y.)
    30ml Prada N°4 Fleur d'Oranger, EdT?
    20ml Champagne, vintage (obviously) EdT
    3,5ml Miss Dior, vintage parfum
    5ml 4711 Tosca



    I'm very excited about this one. As I understand
    it's an exclusive predecessor to Infusion de Fleur
    d'Oranger
    . Can anybody tell me something about
    this fragrance?!



    Can any of you date this parfum?
    It say 'Ref. 7201 (471 10425)'
    on the back of the box.

    Prada No 4 is from Prada's exclusive line with 10 fragrances focusing on one or two notes as the major theme (I have No 1 Iris and No 3 Cuir Ambre). They are parfum strength. It seems like they were all discontinued recently, but don't quote me on that.

    I just did a last few minutes bid on a barely used half ounce bottle of Ralph Lauren Safari (womens harder to find) and won!
    On the other hand I've lost the high bid on some Krizia/Chanel/Ferre/SL;Krizia/Chanel/Ferre/Tocade;several minis and sample lots and a coffret of Lanvin Scandal,Ruemer,My Sin,Arpege.(I don't win all the time either.Dad says it's good and keeps me humble not feeling entitled.Me -I say it keeps me financially solvent!)

    OK...OK... now stop the Asja flacon bashingLDG (and Warum) right now.
    I have one of those Asja flacons and I think it is most attractive. Reminds me of Japanese laquerware. In fact I think I like the flacon better than I liked the juice.
    Chacun a son gout and all that, eh?

    Another good haul LDG

    Oh oh. I just noticed that you only gave it 2 stars - how completely disappointing! Even though I absolutely refuse to take the blame for your ordering this without sniffing (you've seen the warnings!) I'm so sorry you don't care for it ...and I'm very surprised. I figured a beautiful vanilla would be a cakewalk for Fragonard! Ugh ...how could they do this to us?

    So what seems to be the problem with it? Too much chocolate?
    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

    Did I give it 2 stars? I just meant to highlight it as not in the Fragrance Directory. No, I like it very much! And maybe you will, too . I don't really know it well enough to rate it yet...but I think it will be at least 4*...

    Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet $3.99 +$4 shipping .It's hard to tell exactly how full the bottle is and the seller didn't specify size -it could be a 30ml or a 5ml bottle the picture is a bit fuzzy .It seems to be about 1/3 full at the very least.And Ebay samples in Penhaligons usually run $8.99 possibly + shipping too .I hope the citrus is still good!

    Kenzo Flower Oriental. I'm hoping that it somehow scratches my itch for a bottle of Penhaligon's Zizonia. (Yeah, highly logical, I know.)

    Not fume related, but I'm very excited anyway... Vintage Lanvins from the 80's...



    I need to know how to scent them, though... I'll figure it out...

    Just ordered some Eau des Merveilles, which was love at first sniff for me, and some Agent Provocateur Maitresse. Also some samples are on the way: Portrait of a Lady, Felanilla, Parfum Sacre, Habanita, Quelques Fleurs, Chergui and Eau Claire des Merveilles.

    coopmom - goody! I'm so relieved, and extra-pleased that you like it!

    OMG, Baldufita - those are awesome! They're in such good shape, too! Fragrance-wise, they remind me of vivacious and voluptuous florals, like Chloe or Oscar de la Renta, or Ysatis! But I always automatically think vintage. For something more current that I know you have and love, I think Black Orchid would be a good match for them! But I suppose it also depends on what else you might be wearing with them ...you should have lots of fun creating outfits around them!

    I hit SpaceNK's sale again, this time it was chrismtas gifts for 2011 and birthday gifts too.
    Their own brand fragrance all £35 down to £8.75 so I bought Champaca and Santalrosa two of each. Two Santalrosa gift sets down to £12.50 and two Life NK trio bath/shower gel sets.

    For myself Honore Des Pres Vamp A NY edp down from £69 to £17
