    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.

    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 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!

    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.
