    Oddly, I haven't been too tempted lately. I thought the initial whiff of Creed White Flowers would make me swoon for an acquisition, but the drydown and the price tag cured that!

    Congrats on the Detchema, Rosemary of Rosemary's Baby scent. It's really very pretty. If you can get a some of their Carnet de Bal reasonably that's worth the effort too.

    The last (?) store selling ELD'O in Montreal is discontinuing its bottles, and I bought its last two 50 mL bottles (Encens et bubblegum and Vraie blonde) blind for a very good price!

    My first blind buys, and I'm glad I actually like them! But I still need to find my true love, Like This.

    I also bought on a sheer impulse (unsniffed) Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess...I feel summer slipping through my fingers...should I buy an inexpensive Bond no.9 Fire Island? Anyone wearing that one? Or maybe Bobbi Brown beach? Any info appreciated.

    Last Friday, bought a 100ml. bottle of Jo Malone Dark Amber and Ginger Lily. So glad they are selling this again. I really wanted a 50ml. bottle but they didn't have that option. 1st bottle of perfume bought online since April, wow, it seemed 10X that long, lol.

    I'm planning a big sell-off, so in anticipation of extra funds I blind-bought Shalimar Parfum Initial. Love the Shalimar EDP and the vintage parfum - I expect to adore Initial, too. Very pleased with this one and can't wait to try it!

    Fleurine, I feel the exact same way, summer seems to be slipping away so quickly . Though it's been very hot, I love the longer days and outdoor activities that summer brings. I've started buying scents for Fall but feel a need to get that one last summer scent to spritz before summer is completely over. I have not tried any of the scents you listed, though one of my friends who also shares my passion for fragrance loves BB Beach and goes back to it each summer. I've been musing over purchasing Balenciaga Paris, or trying to track down a bottle of Bond No 9 Coney Island or Chelsea Flowers or going with JM Verbenas of Provence.

    Hope whatever you buy makes summer last a little bit longer for you

    Thanks Larimar! Lyric Woman is pretty incredible! I don't think I can afford a large Amouage collection, but that one I just had to had to purchase.

    And Addicted2pretty...I'm still contemplating another summer scent...even though it's pouring today...maybe I will pull it out in the cold weather too. Let me know what you decide on.
