    Talking Which will be your first buy for 2012?

    What frags are you going to buy as soon as 2012 arrive guys?! Non-niche that are pretty good or that niche frag, whatever! Maybe one or a top 5, it´s up to your bucks!

    I don't know. Apres L'Ondee, possibly Tubereuse Criminelle. Smelled Chanel's Cristalle the other day and was thoroughly intrigued...

    We'll see what happens.

    I'm going to sample a bunch of stuff in early January. The only thing currently on my "maybe" list is Cuir Mauresque. I'm definitely wanting to try the new orangey one from Parfum d'Empire. I don't plan to buy very much in 2012. I feel like I've bought about everything I'll ever need at this point.

    If I order anything, I might sample the Montale line quite a bit in case they stop making fragrances soon.

    Me too! I'm going in Feb. and I'm trying to save a little money before then. I'm thinking Serge Lutens at Barney's but I need to study the Chicago topic here to see what else to look for.

    I might see if I can find Andy Tauer to test, I've never tried any of those. Or I might look for Carthusia Numero Uno, because I've been really enjoying my sample. : ) I don't have much of a clue of what I can find in Chicago.

    Mmmh - true to my recent direction regarding spending money:

    etro - gomma

    Why? Myself was pleased to take a basic curse in scuba diving on a sunny island. The neoprene aroma is all around which, unfortunately has been disclosed as being the debris of micro organisms metabolism having a fine time on the substrate of skin & salted water ...

    So far so true. But honest - do You consider the question of Yours worthwhile? Waiting for the plane back I saw a fellow who sprayed himself about 5 shots (no exaggeration!) of Chanel, Bleu De on his pullover before takeoff. Finally sitting close to the WC he dominated the back part of the jet impressively. I wished I had a scOba then ... <self contained Overwater breathing apparatus>

    For short: fragrance isn't worth that much of attention, mind You? It's more the other way round. Why don't You just float around and wait - even for a longer period - for something really nice to hook up Your weak wallet?
