    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.

    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

    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!

    I sometimes feel that way, but I really waste very little money. My one personal indulgence is cologne. I bought a nearly full 100ML bottle of Chanel Egoiste from a fellow basenoter. $50 for that scent at that price feels good!

    You should certainly love this! Congrats. It's one of my favorites, if not the favorite.

    Having loved cologne/perfume all my life, but never venturing into niche scents, I decided to sign up for niche 101 and order a few Creeds bottles despite all the pros/cons and love/hate. Have a 2.5 of SMW and MI ordered today, a 1.0 of OS ordered a week ago, and got a 2.5 GIT last month. Wife getting me a 4.0 Aventus for X-mas. Now just how pathetic and fanboyish does that sound! Actually, I've only experienced sample of these but when the coupons for Black friday hit my email it was just to hard to pass up. All in all I figured 5 bottles for the price of 2 was an ok savings. Trusting D'dara, perfume emporium, and beauty encounter deliver fresh/legit goods as they are know to do.

    Le De (vintage) by Givenchy. What a surprise. It reminds me of my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Schlatter. She was wonderful. The scent is much more floral than I expected but has a delicious bite and creaminess at the same time. Very cool. I hope the new version is half this good.

    I just got 1 mL of Amouage Homage Attar in the mail! I love it, it's not exactly what I expected, it has a clean/fresh facet to it and the rose isn't as prominent. As a result it is more masculine leaning and wearable than I thought it would be. Good Stuff!

    I am also waiting on a full bottle of L'instant de Guerlain Extreme EDP. It's a total blind buy but it was available and prices are going up so I figured now was a good time to order. Should be easy to sell if I don't like it...
