    First tried this 6 months ago... found it far too strong and cloying.
    Recently tried Heeley's Cardinal... loved it but it was too bright, shiny, warmer and cleaner, I wanted the murkiness and the cloying effect of Avignon, I didn't care for trying it again, I had to have it! Never thought I'd own a full bottle of it...
    Very excited for it though!!

    Shalimar Silky Body Creme by Guerlain



    As a lover of Shalimar, this purchase was sort of a no-brainer - it was more like why don't I own this already?? Having had the Body Lotion for many years (which is a bit thinner and more hollow) and now the Shower Gel (which is fantastic!) I decided it was time to nab this. This is a vintage tube from the 90's (gold and black packaging), the 'new' Body Creme comes in a blue tub like this. This is like the parfum version of the lotion - EXQUISITE!

    Just backing up my 30ml Fahrenheit with a 50ml bottle plus deodorant and shower gel for £30. Having heard whispers of a 2012 reformulation and reformulating their products is almost a hobby with Dior.

    Was on a bit of a shopping spree yesterday.. Needed some good work scents, plus there was a sale at my local shop. So wound up with:
    Prada Infusion D'Vetiver
    Prada Amber Pour Homme
    Van Gils Classic
    Zegna Intenso

    I read alot of criticism about Infusion D'Vetiver, but I find it to be a quite pleasing and relaxed vetiver.. Very nice, for some casual clothing on a cold winter day
    Winter top 5:
    Cartier Santos
    Varvatos Vintage
    Chanel Egoiste
    Ralph Lauren Polo Green
    Dior Fahrenheit Absolute
