... Oh man! My birthday is the 27th so its a combo for me for Thanksgiving so I am buying Tonka Imperiale.
On my wish-list are L'eau d'Ikar (Sisley) and Equus (Lalique)... for now
"M" of course. I think I'll be one of the first to purchase the 100ml bottle. It cuts the price per ml nearly in half.
You can see bottles here:

Already ordered, can't wait to arrive a big square bottle of:
Funny thing, I did't care too much of it when I tried it 2 years ago....taste evolution !!!

I have bought far too much recently......on the other hand if a few kind basenoters were to buy some of my collection i could buy myself more treasures ;-) lol
Christmas came early this year... and I should be receiving my Byredo Encens Chembur and Mark Buxton Around Midnight tomorrow! (I'm on an incense kick.)
Once my credit card has recovered -- likely after the holidays -- I've got my eye on Tom Ford Italian Cypress and a small bottle of Cuir de Russie or Sycomore.
One leather I never did get to try that I really wanted to:
Cuir de Lancome
Not a big spend, but I'm still looking forward to it!
Just ordered myself a botte of Jubilation XXV, 20% off at fourseasons.com - fully prepared to Jubilate this holiday season!
To begin the new year, I hope I can find a bottle of the original Dior Homme Intense.
Idole de Lubin EDP
Mona di Orio Vetyver
MFK Aqua Universalis Forte
*edit*: exclusive to Harrods in UK till next year Feb.
Funny thing. I haven't seen a pyramid in about a year that sparked an interest in even sampleing a new fragrance. Hmm! I haven't purchased a fragrance in probably the same amount of time.
Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....
Samples from Soivohle (Liz Zorn), Ayala Moriel, Ore and samples from Slumberhouse, and Cuir D'Oranger.

Just bought it this morning.... A raw material I have wanted for a long time and have struggled to find a source that I trust for it.
White Rose CO2 from White Lotus Aromatics.....I'm stoked!!!!
Honoré des Près - I Love les Carottes, a "vegetable fougère".
It took several tries to like it, but now I'm on board. It's organic, but with good lasting power, it's odd, but not pretentiously so and it seems humorous to me. Carrot juice?! Yes it actually works as a perfume.
I know I already mentioned the Jubilation. However, Christmas came early at the Gae house this year, and my folks just gifted me with L'Ether de Iunx. The presentation and packaging is stunning, by the way.
5-600€ worth of books for my next semester Studying law is expensive... My frag purchases have been seriously hampered by the book prices, but I hope to squeeze a bottle of GIT into my budget

I just bought my Christmas present to myself today. I had a code to get %15 off a Bond No.9 purchase. I decided not to wait until next month just in case they didn't have the same offer. I bought a bottle of NY Amber, which smells absolutely amazing to me and on me! I got a sample of NY Amber from my last purchase. I sprayed a spot on my arm, using my application method, before I went to sleep yesterday. When I woke up, you could still smell the scent on my arm. I was like OMG! I have to have this. I can't wait to spray that sucker 15+ times LMAO!! Naw, I definitely won't have to spray that many times with this one I'm sure. I just love frags like this during the cold months. I can't wait!! Let me go see if they sent me a tracking number LOL!
Diva is fartin in your perfume mist before you walk through it!! Walk slow and let it marinate......
Divatologist....Breaking perfume rules since 1969
I smells goooooooooooood! Don't believe me? Come smell me!!
"The Divatologist Perfume Application Method" is now available!!! Learn It, Live It, Love It Click Here! Many Compliments Await You!
I'll be in a warmer country during that time for holiday. I'll be doing some perfume hunting over there. So let's see!!!
Guerlain Mitsouko and Amouage Jubilation 25! I love my chypres!
Follow-up to OP: the Patou Pour Homme arrived today, and damn - it is fine stuff.
I have been nearly saintly good this month, and Santa Claus has agreed that I deserve it. Bout to indulge in a little Serge Lutens year-end binge. . .
I'll be traveling to the Netherlands prior to Christmas. There seems to be very good places to indulge in perfumerie (thanx for all the info Bonoanimoes ). I am debating myself to get one (maybe two ) from the following:
-Lyric, Reflection, Memoir, or Epic (Amouage)
-Cuir Beluga (Guerlain)
I got myself a bottle of Vanille 44 and restocked my supplies with almost 50ml of Windsor (first batch).
My big bottle of Coromandel just arrived this morning.
So far, it looks like I'm getting Tobacco Vanille, Ambre Sultan, Chergui and Five O'Clock Au Gingembre...
Purchases for myself are some Creed samples (stocking stuffer), couple miniatures eg Egoiste, Tuscany, DK Men, and a bottle of Michael Kors for men. With the exception of the Creeds these are fragrances I am revisiting that I once received for Christmas.
Le Labo Rose 31.
l can never resist buying myself a present. l've already bought Dior Addict, & with my Christmas money l'm planning some decants of the (very expensive) perfumes on my wish list for New Year.

LOL @ JoeP and comments, especially "well-deserved"!
Ken_Russel -- L'Erbolario is a good solid line, with their prices one can't go wrong.
hednic, great plan, nice winter possibilities! Will it make your total bottle count around 10K?
For me, I originally intended to buy a few bottles from Provence Sante but after testing and re-testing some, the plan has been changed: the only one from the entire line (Tilleul) will be purchased sometime closer to springtime. There is also a thought of replenishing two or three of the fragrances I have almost finished: Mauboussin, Chanel Beige, SL Arabie.
Still undecided about FM Therese or Dior Diorella (when/if I can find an older version of the latter). Another idea lurking on the back of my mind is Hermes Rouge.
