    Red face TODAY I BOUGHT: February 2011

    What's it gonna be for February?

    So bad! Couldn't keep my hands off the trigger so I pulled it eventually. Just ordered a bottle of West Side 100ml!!! I believe it will be here in 2 weeks.

    Well, I'm gonna put mine here since the transaction won't complete until Tuesday anyway.

    After a generous freebie sample thrown in from bbBD on Crystal Flacon, I bought on eBay the small 15 mL bottle of Hermes Hermanessence Vetiver Tonka.

    Also today after having had the misfortune of unsuccessfully trying twice to buy partial bottles of Montale Red Vetyver and getting low on the partial bottle 50mL I had, Montale got back with me on a price quote so I pulled the trigger as at $130 on 100mL bottle with the free 20mL sample it was the best deal I could find out there.

    For my freebie I'm going to try Black Aoud.
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.

    Last night I bought a replacement for my dwindling bottle of Guerlain Homme. This is my favorite and I am happy that it will be the first time I've bought a second bottle of any scent.

    I bought myself a 100ml bottle of Ralph Lauren Silver Romance last night from FragranceX. Hopefully it'll arrive reasonably sharpish although i've heard stories of slow delivery. I haven't seen it available in any shops in my local area so hopefully i'll be quite unique wearing it, even if it is slightly generic.

    No, its not discontinued Volley, only the extrait is (it has been for some time). The black/gold box with batch codes starting with letters (not numbers), as is the case with mine, denotes a preferred formula.

    Well, I bit the bullet on one of the Amouage Reflection testers on ebay. It wasn't near the top of my to-buy list, but I rarely have seen those testers and at such a great price, I just had to to make an exception. Now the long wait for the package....

    first time i tested this i hated it
    smelled so disgusting, like Burnt tires

    mayBe the extremely hot and humid weather of my city didn't help (36c)

    right now it's cold and i love it

    im not sure aBout the sillage and longevity
    i feel it really close to my skin after 3 hours
    But people around me it's telling that it's too strong

    so mayBe i went through olfactory fatigue
