    Colonia by Acqua di Parma
    Lavanda Tonica EdT by Acqua di Parma + Shower Gel + soap



    I've been wanting Colonia for quite a long time (been a fan of Colonia Assoluta for an even longer time) so it's nice to finally have this one in my wardrobe.

    The Lavanda Tonica is a new love of mine - it hits all of the right buttons for my love of lavender prominent scents: medicinal; crisp; dry; subtle. It might just eclipse Caldey Island Lavender Water as my go-to simple lavender.

    Today my two Donna Karan New York EDPs arrived (50ml & 100ml). These now join my existing Donna Karan 'family' of 100ml Signature EDP, and 15ml pure parfum.

    BTW, the watermarked photo is not me being precious... but Ive seen several of my pics in the past shamelessly used in auctions on evilbay. Why I oughta...!

    So I couldn't help myself and ended up buying:
    Givenchy Vetiver
    Givenchy Monsieur de G.
    Aramis Havana
    Moschino ? Uomo

    and I really had to constrain myself to not end up buying a LOT more......

    I am enjoying its citrus top & creamy vetiver dry down and I can relate to it's resemblance to Allure Homme Sport.

    I took a flier on a purchase of ...



    PURE MALT! from the website of a store in my home state. I bought 2 on the off chance that they had some new old stock gathering dust in a tiny midwestern town. If it's the e-store for a brick and mortar place and they come through for me, I might have to pay them a personal visit, since it's only about an hour's drive away and they list a lot of great frags that I've been dying to try/buy in their stock.

    If not... then I'm out a couple hundred dollars and we'll get legal.

    Adventure! I'll let you all know how it turns out.

    Bois des Iles Extrait (Chanel)

    I have been humming and hawing over this for a year or so. It took me a long time to relax with the aldehydic opening of the EDT, just not something I am used to, but now that's cool and the more I get to know it the more it became apparent that the Extrait was the next step. Sandalwood has always been my favourite note and there are very, very few fragrances that get it right - for the simple reason that there is precious little Mysore commercially available. Impossible to sample the Extrait so it was a leap of faith but well worth it. Thumbs up.

    FWIW, I would say the MPG Baïme is particularly nice.

    Sunday I visited L'Occitane for some Cade shaving cream and also picked up a bottle of L'Occitan. It's a bit strange, but I quite like it.
