Ah, lovely purchase- I'm envious!
I have this loaded into my e-cart, not sure what my delay is in pulling the trigger.
hate that Rance 1795 style cap
took over an hour, but trigger pulled.
Congrats Chocolateguy! Enjoy it!

i was at a nearby perfume shop (most of the frags here are vintage) when i accidentally saw this precious bottle "hiding" at the back of Polo Black, it's about 2/3 full (50mL bottle) and i bought it for around $18.. actually, i was looking for the original Polo by Ralph Lauren (green bottle with gold cap)
no great shakes but good enough..
Decants of the following:
My newest acquisitions. I can't seem to fix the picture.
China White, Silver Musk, Jubilation XXV and Lyric Man

Nasomatto Black Afgano is my fave frag right now
Creed - Aventus.
Bond no 9 - I love NY for all.

Heading off to the States tomorrow for a year working in New York, so i've blind bought this...
If you're in the NYC mood, then you could easily go crazy here:
Happy new year everyone!
Welcome to basenotes Sticky THreads!
Thanks to the mention of the Dillard's sale in the discount/coupon section I just got a Shalimar gift set and a Prada Amber Intense gift set. Happy New Year!
"Ca sent les pieds!"
Santal 33 - Le Labo
I bought bottles of Bond no. 9 Hamptons and Bleecker Street off the sales board. I've owned each several times. Just had a Bond hankerin'.
Caron Le 3 homme
Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar
-A swap: Tom Ford Bois Rouge. I can`t belive why He discontinued this beauty!
Got Kenzo Power, Rochas Rochasman and CK Truth in my e-basket at the moment, pondering clicking buy. I'm a newcomer and don't really have alot of scents at the moment, so I really need to build my wardrobe. Both Power and Rochasman are great and different - a bit uncertain about the CK Truth. It's probably one of CK's best, but I'm still vaguely "iffy" about it. Could probably do Cool Water and or Encre Noir as well, but E.N is hard to use correctly for me (too much casual life ) and CW is just ... overused? Hopefully people are starting to forget about CW just about now tho, so the time could be right.
Got my Leather Oud split courtesy of heperd. Thanks, man!
Also, my late Xmas present arrived:

My local Creed Counter had a promotion, bring in an empty Creed Atomizer and they would fill it with any fragrance of my choice. No purchase necessary. I had a red one that i originally had intended to fill with Vintage Tab from my flacon but a free refill was too good to pass up.
I ended up getting 50ml of Royal Oud which is quickly growing on me. It's perfect for the 55 degree weather we are having today. I also got a generous decant of Feuilles Vertes. Which is really nice but Im finding it overly transparent and fleeting (4 hours or so) for the cost.
Vintage Paco Rabanne PH
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Just ordered the full set of samples from Parfum d'empire and six samples from Histories de Parfums. I'm determined that Ambre Russe or Ambre 114 will be the amber for me.
