    Speaking of Chanel, dropped another $50 at tpc thanks to them. Had to get another sample of Coromandel now that the smaller bottles of the Les Exclusifs are available. Plus Beige and Sycomore. And since I was already buying: Demeter Linden, Demeter Honey, Brooklyn Bunny Lettuce, Tokyo Milk Honey & the Moon and Dead Sexy, L'Artisan Traversee du Bosphore, Guerlain Shalimar Ode de La Vanille, F. Malle Portait of a Lady.

    I love Baldufita's story - I badly want some No 5 extrait too !

    Just ordered on-line at good prices, Commes des Garcons & Bulgari Blu Notte.
    The Bulgari is a blind buy that I just like the sound of - fingers crossed with this one.

    Ordered a decently priced 1 oz of Donna Karan Black Cashmere that arrived today (after having been sent a sample by a generous Basenoter) ... and pulled the trigger last night on another decently-priced (about 60% of retail) Serge Lutens Chypre Rouge.

    Now I feel better ! I won a bid on a mostly full bottle of Chanel Coco edp .After seeing that you all are up to some serious sampleing/Blind buying (btw-Bulgari Blu Notte is lovely-so is the Black Cashmere compliments to you both indigo and actiasluna) I feel better -it was only $22.50 and shipping is free.

    Okay. SpaceNK's sale is still on going. Yesterday on the way home I had a wander in the store. The Honore des Pres range now only £12 from £89!!!! Had a sniff and decided hell for that price I would go for Charman's Party. Now normally, vetiver and I don't have the best relationship it turns bog body on me. But this one though the vetiver came through I still got the campfire smoke and other dark woods too.

    Just bought a vintage Shalimar parfum on ebay. Still sealed in original box/wrapping! I am a bit frightened. I'm hoping if the juice is gone it may be a baccarat bottle I can sell for a huge profit. Cross your fingers for me.

    It's a little difficult to advise you without knowing what you've tried so far, but ...

    Some sites block you from displaying their pictures directly from other sites (hotlinking). If that's the case you'll need to re-host the image somewhere else, or find another copy online.

    The easiest way on BN is to right click the pic you want and copy its web location, then just use the insert image button on BN and paste the entire location in there.

    Apres L'Ondee parfum 30ml. Some here may recall reading my debacle trying to secure a bottle of this a few months ago, but finally Lady Fortune smiled upon me.



    And this little treasure from (I expect) perhaps the 40s - 20ml of Vol de Nuit extrait in the very early bottle. It has a thick brass stopper and sticky paper label instead of the brass name plaque.

    I spent today in a several Sudanese and Ethiopian sundry shops, perusing fragrances. I had a few dozen conversations in which neither of us actually spoke each other's language, but it was very informative nonetheless. The look of utter contempt given to me by the fifteen-year-old son of one of the store's owners when I entered amused rather than offended (ah, to be so young, and knowing all things); but I was a trifle uncomfortable when women browed the same sections that I did. But there the discomfort was all mine, for none of them gave me a second look.

    A surprise was the abundance of real oud - oud chips, filling bags and caskets, in various grades and origins. Very low quality I dare say. Probably mixed with synthetic resins. But it seems readily obtainable all the same. I purchased a bag of 'Oud Subah'.

    I purchased the following al-Rehab fragrances: Red Rose, Lord, Al-Aseel (largely on what seemed to be the recommendation of somone working at the store - it appears to be very popular), and Al-Fares.

    These are all pleasant enough. But by far my favourite acquisition by far is Mukhalat Aloudh, put out by Rasai. It is splendid. A beautiful, rose-suffused oud. _Slightly_ sweet only - and not in the conventional sense, for which I've limited tolerance. It is not dry, but it does not need to be, for there is a fullness to it like that of the better sandalwoods that seems to free it from the need for acerbic restraint. It makes me happy - I have been smiling when I breathe in its scent. Very smoothly-blended and natural-smelling indeed. Calming. And the only thing of its type that I possess. I have done some research into mukhallats today, and found that it appears this appears to be one of the lowest qualities ones. This is pleasant to hear - for in that case I am assured of some pleasant discoveries.

    Arielle De Fragonard - Magnificent classic perfumery- thanking brielle87 for the review which inspired the purchase
    One Man Show by Bogart- (for reference) Oh yeah! Now, I need a dude to spray
    Sinan Lune- Jean Marc Sinan- Initial spray on card left impression of high quality but challenging top notes for me- will have to retest on skin

    ARPEGE and MY SIN extrait

    My Sin strikes me as a more luxurious Bal a Versailles.

    Think it will be even better in summer but it is like liquid sunshine for me now. Early birthday present from me to me since January was my 'extra paycheck effect' month, and to take advantage of the last few days of free shipping @ the Luckyscent.
    After I worked through 2 samples and got another I figured I really wanted it...

    Thanks kumquat. The Apres L'Ondee smells phenomenal, however the VdN has turned a little with age. Fortunately I have sufficient juice from another bottle to either replace the parfum inside, OR I'll just leave the current juice in there to display the bottle where I don't have to worry so much about heat/light.

    A mini (10ml) of Womanity - still not sure about it, but it will stop me from compulsively sniffing the tester every time I see it, plus I love the bottle.
    Also an old favourite, Dolce & Gabbana (in the red flock box) - it takes me back about 20 years I think !

    Must stop buying for a while, now :-)

    Yesterday at Ross they had a 3.4 oz bottle of Samsara for $42 +tax -I passed on that.Went home bid on a 1oz edp + 6.8oz lotion and won that today for $14.99+$6 shipping.Also won a bottle of alcohol free Escada Sport Country Weekend$10.Much better pricewise! (I'll still keep an eye on the Samsara at Ross -if it drops lowwer it may get adopted!)

    Today I bought a 30ml decant of Fragonard's Belle de Soleil on sale at The Perfumed Court. So excited - I've been looking for a smaller amount than the 200 ml available on the Fragonard site. Also ordered samples of Fragonard Miranda and Grain de Soleil and Chanel's Bel Respiro. Yay! 30 ml is the perfect size for me. I look for 15 or 30 ml whenever I can, so I'm pretty sure this was meant to be.

    Diva edp by Ungaro. Bought some of this for my mum at Christmas since she used to wear it in the 80s when it first came out, but then it disappeared from the shops. I was half hoping that she wouldn't like it anymore so I could keep it, but no such luck! All set for the '80s powerhouse' synch Friday on 11 Feb
