Went to Sephora today didn't buy anything for myself but did pick up Bulgari Aqua pour Homme and Givenchy pour Homme Blue Label for hubby's birthday tomorrow
Happiness is a summer breeze, sand between your toes, and your family by your side.
Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Flora Nymphea. It's May Day and I felt like dancing around a maypole...this is a fragrance for that.
A vintage boxed Cachet set(this may be Mom's Mother's Day gift)and some vintage Evening in Paris.
Are you OK, J.? Is electricity back?
Yes -everyone on my street is fine .A few trees down , some fence damage,no power for about 4 days (with some resulting loss in the lunchmeat/perishables )nothing serious -just inconveinient.It was VERY CLOSE though.And it was an f4 or f5.A few streets up Capshaw lost houses,a church,and the top of a Doppler radar tower.
Malle Carnal Flower and Bulgari Jasmine Noir.
I smell incredible!!

Balenciaga Rumba arrived as did my bottle of Champagne(Labeled Champagne not Yvresse)and two partials of Opium.
My replacement bottle of Richard James by Richard James arrived today from another BN'er.
Listed as a masculine but let's face it: It's pretty girly. And it's finally mine (again).

50ml En Passant by Frederic Malle
Well I have a sample of Montaigne from the early 00s. So finally today I have bought the 100ml edp quite cheaply on ebay.
Though the edp gets a bad rap in The Perfume Guide from Tanya, many others are saying it is good.
Chanel Gardenia parfum
I just bought a back up bottle of Bellodgia and one of Parfum Sacre'. I'm loving Caron Perfumes lately and Guirlain.
Bal à Versailles EDC by Jean Desprez 1oz (Vintage)
Égoïste Platinum EDT by Chanel 1.7oz (Vintage)
Shalimar Parfum by Guerlain 7.5ml (Vintage)
Im glad of my vintage purchases!
Égoïste Platinum is very rare (the actual is Platinum Égoïste)
Bal à Versailles i bought 4 sealed bottles.
Restocked Kilian Pure Oud and Micallef Arabian Diamond, new bottles of Micallef Vanille Oud, Tom Ford Musk Pure. I also got a beautiful Hermes scarf with perfume bottles on it! Woot!
Trying to minimize blind buying now. Two fragrance houses I would like to explore Lorenzo Villoresi and Miller Harris. Ones that intrigue me, hence I ordered samples of:
Teint de Neige
L'air de Rien
Terre de Bois
Feuilles de Tabac
Knize Ten (just because) hahahaha
Yes, Tara, please show us the scarf. Is it from their newer collections?
Shalimar Parfum by Guerlain 0.5oz(Vintage)
Poison EDT by Christian Dior 3.4oz(Vintage)
Poison is about 1/3 full (as the top of the post it showns) and Shalimar is sealed.
Does it count if you didn't actually buy it, but you received it as a gift, and you were present at the time of purchase?
Instead of bought, I got Chanel Bois des Isles (edt). Hooray!
Just ordered Iris Pallida in the new (?) 50ml size, from luckyscent. (thanks for mentioning this item on your basenotes blog, 30 Roses!)
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.
Diva is fartin in your perfume mist before you walk through it!! Walk slow and let it marinate......

Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses.
A partial bottle of Gucci Envy edt (f) arrived yesterday .It's a 3.4oz and about 1/3 full .The seller also threw in extras -half a bottle of Auric Blends Black Opium and samples of L'eau d'Issey and AG Ce soir ou jamais .
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!
''Do unto others 20% better than you'd expect them to do unto you to correct for subjective error.''
Silver Mountain Water by Creed 4oz
Coco Mademoiselle EDT by Chanel 3.4oz
Chanel CDR parfum. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
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.
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.

Actually a drop is enough to make the whole room smell so wonderful, you just fall into extase, then again, if you put too much, you can faint after your eyes start burning
