    I agree with AZsmells about not buying anything this month and enjoying my collection. However, it probably won't happen I bought at least 10 bottles of cologne in November including 3 discontinued frags, some backup bottles, and a niche. I'm going to start limiting my selection and buying only rare or niche frags for a while.

    Not bad. I wish this was available at ASDA/Tesco like the original 24 for men (heavily discounted). I like 24 Gold and it's still kinda cheap at £24.95 for 50ml, but I don't know if I'll pay that.

    My goal was also to not buy a fragrance in December...but I failed and bought L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extreme today. I liked the EDT so much it seemed, er, logical.

    Sonoma Scent Fireside Intense in 34ml!!

    Bought their samples 1 year ago, didn't really like them as I was starting off that time. Now that my nose is more 'trained' (relatively speaking anyway) I sampled them again just now as I was looking for an incense-themed frag, but I unearthed this gem instead

    Thinking of getting Incense Pure next, what does people think about this compared to CdG Kyoto? PM me please so it doesn't disturb this thread

    Borneo 1834 from Serge Lutens

    My favorite sales rep hooked me up with a sample of Daim Blond from Serge Lutens, and a generous 3 samples of Batucada from L'Artisan.

    Taken the plunge. Still not crazy on the top notes, but the dry down is too good to resist. £28 for the gift set so good value.

    OMG. This is what I'm buying myself for Christmas (among other things). I love the explanation...something about the French proverb that if you can be on the balcony at Christmas, you'll have to have a fireplace at Easter. I know I COMPLETELY bastardized that. Enjoy, Mike!
