New York by Parfums De Nicolai.
I received these today
Something new (Floris JF 100ml) and something to back up when I run out (Chanel Egoiste AS splash 120ml)
For good, anatomic reasons, scent fosters memory more readily than any other sense.
Found a 100ml bottle of vintage pre-reformulation YSL M7 today, complete in cellophane etc. Bought it blind since it seems to be quite a legend.
Smells very good, but dunno if its for me yet. Its very good, but kind of sweet and medical for my taste. Might have to let it go for something else.
A few early birthday gifts:
Comme des Garcons Series 1: Leaves - Calamus
Comme des Garcons Series 1: Leaves - Lily
Tom Ford Private Blend - Japon Noir
Nasomatto - Narcotic Venus
Histoires de Parfums - Tubereuse 3 L’Animale
Penhaligons - Sartorial

My latest finds:
Hope everyone is enjoying a fragrant new year!
Today my wife bought me Bleu de Chanel. I thought I would dislike it due to some reviews but I really like it!
I ordered a bunch of stuff from the L'Artisan sale. They came today!
Passage d'Enfer, 50 ml.
Piment Brûlant, 50 ml.
Poivre Piquant, 50 ml.
Tea For Two, 100 ml.
I own all except Passage d'Enfer already.... PB and PP in 15 ml sizes and a Tea For Two in 100 ml. WIth all the talk about it getting discontinued, I thought I would get a back up bottle. I may give it to a friend as a present, though.
There was a 5th scent ordered and it wasn't included in the shipment. I'm not sure if it's on backorder, or never to come. I wrote L'Artisan about what's up, so hope to hear from them soon about it.

I see I am not the only one on this thread to have bought...
Man I am so excited I wore a sample before buying, and I got an unprecedented amount of compliments, something that almost never happens around here. Lovely scent.
Really happy with ALZD's generously sized samples.
(Luckyscent sample vial on the right for comparison)
Jubilation XXV + free gift (samples of Amouage men's line) + sample orgy of Creed, by Kilian, Xerjoff, Maitre Parfumeur de Gantier, and O. Durbano
(If you happen to order an Amouage from LuckyScent, just type Amouage2011 for the promo code to get the gift set.)

Being naughty again - i couldnt resist the price especially with the basenotes coupon for fragrancenet,
Cant wait for these babies
Love this stuff at first sniff and bought it on the spot.
Just bought 30ml bottles of PdN's New York, Balle de Match and Cedrat Intense. I have owned 100ml bottles of the latter two before, but sold them last year as I doubted I'd ever get through them. Recently decided I missed them, so the 30mls are a sort of compromise .
Life's a bitch. If it were a slut it'd be easy.
^^^ plus Sartorial and a blind purchase of CdG Calamus which sounds very interesting.

Duty free at Manchester airport, couldn't resist buying this awesome cologne:

Guess how much Pure Havane is at Dubai duty free? Usd 60. Yes, 60. If my holidays were shorter I would've gotten a few of them to sell on the Bay lmao. Instead, I got myself some Dior Homme.
I went for Itasca today.
I'm part of Krons SDV, Mona's vetyver and musc and Guerlains Dandy fragrance. That guy won't be happy until I'm in the poor house lol
I was wondering the same thing about CW. I don't have any generic young men's fragrances and am pondering getting this one.
This week bought Dior Homme and Michael Kors.[/QUOTE]
I tried some CW and it almost turned my stomach, exactly like a fake creed scent I had the displeasure of trying once.

Didn't buy today, but recently received 50ml decants of:
The Aventus is unbelievable. It is a Creed that actually has longevity! I got over 13 hours the first time I wore it. It smells incredible with it's fruity, smokey, and leathery majesticness. Without a doubt my favorite Creed.

"The plant that you have in your home - have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call a plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant's emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher."
