    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!

    100ml of Nu Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent to go in my stockpile. I don't normally buy back-up bottles of anything but Nu is getting increasingly harder to find so I'm picking up bottles when I see them!

    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.

    A pretty full Hanae Mori Blue Butterfly and partial tube of shower gel;new minis of Infusion d'Iris and Prada Tendre .

    New arrivals today -Ralph Lauren Safari (feminine) half ounce plus a travel cosmetic pouch(which should be perfect to put the ammo cartridge holder that I use for some sample vial storage to keep the dust off)
    - La Perla La Perla just sniffing the bottle -great stuff -If you like Diva,Knowing, Tabu or Aromatics Elixir then you probably need to try this.

    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.

    Thank you Mr. G... yes I liked them because they are quite masculine. Matte black, and when filled, quite weighty in the hand. They hold 15ml each, and I am considering having the name of the perfume engraved on the side, or initials on the lid.

    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.

    Thank you to a fellow Aussie BNer I will do another series as soon as I amass a few more rare Guerlains.

    Knit- I also hit the clearance rack at TJMaxx. I came away with a gift set of Lolita Lempicka for $15 (1.7 oz of EDP and body lotion) and a 4 oz bottle of Tea Rose for $5. Totally unplanned purchases, but I love a bargin and had both on the maybe sometime list.

    CONGRATULATIONS on your first DC frag aquisition! You are officially falling down the slippery slope of fume- mania. And that nice rickbr was your pusher....oops, I mean enabler LOL! Enjoy, enjoy...

    On another note, I'm reporting back on the budget purchase of Deauville from last evening. I sprayed once on my arm 15 hours ago and the drydown is still a strong and lovely skin scent. Impressive.
