    Default I can't buy another fragrance for at least four months!

    ARGH!! How in the Hell am I going to manage that?! I've got pure malt coming in the post as we speak and then I have to shut up shop and start seriously saving for my holiday to Vegas in June. I have no idea how on Earth i'm going to be good for that long!

    Sell your least favorite scent in your wardrobe and spend the profit on samples. 40usd should get you 12-20 samples

    In fact, i might be inclined to sell everything in your wardrobe with less than 4 stars. Life's too short for 3 star scents...

    I sympathize!

    Hang in there. Enjoy what you already have, get to know 'em all better.

    (easier said than done, honestly... but you can!)

    And a suggestion: Try layering. Bulgari Black is a great scent to layer... and you might find that your "lemmings" are diminished somewhat by the experiment... and your wardrobe expanded exponentially, simply by doing so!

    Anyone can economize for the short term. Eat at home; skip the unnecessary extras that you spend money on regularly (you know best what you can do without for a few months), and use the money to buy samples as suggested above!

    Ah it's fine - I'll win a shitload of cash on the tables in Vegas and by the end of August, I'll be swimming in Creeds! =)

    Have you considered buying a big, roomy overcoat, with deep pockets. . . maybe a hat and dark glasses too. . .

    Have you considered an affair with one of your favorite SAs?

    Meanwhile, Dan & Marc will continue to taunt me with their Youtube reviews! =(

    SAs = Sales Associates. In plain American English, they're the cuties who staff retail sales counters where fragrance is sold. Surely there are some cute, flirty, fun SAs in your neighborhood.

    The one that mans the local frag counter at my nearest Boots is 50 if she's a day, looks like she coats her skin in varnish, and uses enough hair spray to put her own hole in the ozone layer. =)

    Bud . . . . you either want samples or you don't.

    But the SA is basically a good person beneath that varnish, yes?

    And watch it with the "50 if she's a day" comments. At 54, I'm qualified to clobber youngsters who decry my "advanced age."

    Trust me, it'll be worth it. If you're good now, you'll be able to spend that much more time being baaaad in Vegas...

    Vegas is all about spending money. I went there on the cheap once. Once. Never again. In many subsequent trips I had a grand time, all because I developed (and subsequently deployed) a little "devil may care" vacation cash fund.

    Don't miss the high-end shopping in Vegas - especially the fragrance counters. . . you have been warned. . .

    Yes, isn't that a very telling post. Skimp on the "unnecessary extras" so that you can buy... perfume. Only a basenotes member could think that, much less say that. I guess that's why we're all here.

    Now, now Gollnick, we all blow money on other things too! Starbucks, movies, magazines, whatever... Trim spending on the other things and there's more for perfume.
