    I finally bought something new!!! It's been so long since I've bought anything new. I purchased two Kilian perfumes, "Don't Be Shy & White Cristal". Well, I got another scent instead of the White Cristal. That means I have to go back and exchange it. That's what happens when you shop while sleep walking. I got the travel set. It's 1 oz of perfume in the set and it retails for $135. The actual bottle of perfume is like $225 I think she said and it's 1.7 oz.

    My vintage bottle of Miss Balmain arrived today. I still have to pay for the postage but they send it anyway. Trusting me. Waw!

    And it is the right stuff!
    I am sure now, when I got my last bottle, the one I never used, they had reformulated it! i wish I could tell my mum, because I have always felt guilty about receiving an expensive present. one I asked for, and then not liking it.
    Damn those reformulations!

    hmmm this is great!
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    The other day I sampled Burberry Brit (the women's version) and was surprised by how much I liked it. So when I saw it at Target for 15% off the already discounted price ($38 - 15% for the EDT, $49 - 15% for the EDP), I bought a bottle of the EDP.

    I'm waiting on the Nicolai's until I snap some pictures (damn usps!!). As for the Fougueuse... I think it's essentially a yerba mate soliflore. There are some leathery and 'warm' facets, but they are very subdued to the point they only accentuate the mate note. The mate note is at times lemony, herbal, and somewhat bitter. It seems like there are no top notes, only middle and base... And the middle notes being the yerba mate which last hours on my skin. For an EdT it's longevity is way above average. The same mate note also makes an appearance in the Treizieme Heure, which I find much more interesting. I bought Fougueuse blind (Friend and Family sale, damn you!), so I've only worn it a handful of times so far; my opinion/thoughts may change.

    Don't think there are many other (if any) fragrances which feature mate as a note... It is an interesting note to say the least, which is reminiscent of vetiver, green tea & lemongrass.


    Oh, today I bought 50ml export bottles of Miel de Bois & Jeux De Peau by Serge Lutens.

    Thanks Teger- it does sound interesting. Treizieme Heure is a very lovely black tea to me but dries down to sweetish amber vanilla if I remember correctly. Oh, nice Lutens. I got caramel from Jeux de Peau !
