    Saks Dadeland had that promotion on the 30th. It was a last minute thing and I got a txt from my SA there the same day. I almost wasn't able to make it... Almost.

    Today I made a much-needed, pre-birthday designer frag run to Saks. I have been looking for Egoiste forever. It was worn by a guy I had a crush on in England in 1992. It's hard to find as most people only carry Platinum. Then I bought Roadster, my first ever Cartier purchase!

    rubegon - two very good choices. Mitsouko Eau de Parfum is one of the best versions IMO. Such a 'full' chypre.
    Futami - you lucky bastard. Oh and I think your wallet just got happy that you don't like Feuille Verte
    lionheart - when's your B'day? And when the hell did Saks start selling Egoiste?

    Mike, my dear, on the 5th I'll be 42. ugh. I have no idea about Saks. I've called there any number of times and they always said "only the platinum." I called ahead this time and they said yes. I thought they were just confused, but sure enough, it was there, and what a perfect present for myself! I have not smelled this in almost 20 years. Of course, I had seen it on Chanel's webiste, but hadn't pulled the trigger yet for whatever reason. I sprayed it on my hand tonight, and OH THE SWEET SCENT MEMORY! What a ride! Hope you're well.

    Well I'm just speculating here but I reckon the reason mos asks because he has a crush on lionheart and if lionheart were a girl that would be simply awkward for mos. And I think that's a flirtatious giggle not a laugh.

    Wow, I'm just getting wind of this. I assure you I am a guy. I don't know why my post struck a nerve, but it is amazing how someone can take a statement of perfect joy and happiness that I described and try to throw a wet blanket on it with insensitivity.

    I am a person who went through a very messy coming-out with my family. I am a grateful, recovering alcoholic. I am a recent cancer survivor. I know real suffering and have lived to tell the tale. I have decided to take my joy back from all of those experiences and find contentment, so no worries.
