Creed Royal Oud
my first creed! Although, it was on sale on a "flash sale" members type site. but not a bad buy (75ml green irish tweed for $149). I normally don't spend more than $100 on a single bottle, but figured it was ok to splurge with all the holiday shopping happening.
They have lots more to choose from if anyone is interested http://www.beyondtherack.com/member/invite/B775A83
You do have to sign up to view the sale though : (

Beautiful selections alfarom. The Petroleum packaging is spectacular.

I bought a 125 ml of Caron Yuzu Man. Can't wait til it gets here!
Today I bought my first bottle of Kouros and my third bottle of Thierry Mugler Pure Havane. I now have three new bottles of Pure Havane, all from the same department store. I can't believe they still had one bottle in stock because I've been looking for this for months and they never had it in stock. The SAs at two different stores told me that people ask for it and wonder why it is no longer available. Who knows, but my little purchase today got the holiday season off to a great start.
To answer the Paige's quote, I'd probalby be 4.
Michael Jordan Legend...which I threw in the trash a couple minutes later. I have a tendency to do that. Smelled just like 360 White, another fragrance I've thrown in the trash. Both smelled like Axe Kilo to me...and I threw that in the trash as well. No more blind buys of inexpensive cologne.
you could have sent it to me of course with s/h charge
Floris - Eau de Santal
Took delivery of this cute little one today
Revolution by Lisa Kirk
Lovers of the cumin in Kingdom should definitely check this one out. It also has a good dollop of civet.
Despite the nonsense notes and reactions I've discovered this to be a very normal scent.
So far it seems more normal and less synthetic than some CdG frags.
More testing required!
