    Default What are you buying yourself for Christmas?

    Ho ho ho. It's that time of year again. In the true spirit of Christmas getting, I always ask my friends this same question. What are you buying yourself for Christmas?

    Well, I've been particularly good this year. So I bought Feuille Verte. And Aveda Pure-formance Men. And I found a too-good-to-be-true deal on Patou Pour Homme online last night. It'll be a miracle if it actually shows up.

    So you've been good this year. What are you buying yourself for Christmas?

    L'Instant Extreme, L'Anarchiste, Pino Silvestre, and Animale Animale. Purchased them all blind this summer, and they have been in storage since then. My family is going to let me unwrap them as Christmas presents "from them", and I can finally smell these after months of waiting!

    I am thinking Tauer LDDM, Montale Red Vetyver or Red Aoud ( or the loser for the 20ml freebie), an Acqua di Parma Colonia variant (Colonia, Intensa, Assoluta or Essenza)

    I've just ordered Amouage Epic man & Memoir Man plus Chergui and Burning Leaves. That's enough I think. For now....I want Tauer LDDM but I can't find it...

    Edit; Found it and ordered! Also ordered an extra bottle of DHI, I am running out.

    Lalique Pour Homme
    Eau de Rochas Homme

    I will ask my dear for some cheaper (or rather not that expensive) fragrance like Fahrenheit that I wanted for a long time. Then buy myself something expensive, probably my first niche. So far candidates are: Musc Ravageur or Black Aoud or Al Oudh
