    Default Today I Bought March 2012

    The vintage Poison arrived. Still has all it's power from 1988. So different to the contemporary juice

    Recycling hobbies - I sold some 35mm camera gear on ebay and got these:


    Mitsouko EdC - some evaporation, but still smells amazing! 40+ years old and the topnotes are perfect!



    The biggest bottle I have of anything. I finally saw the light on vintage Habit Rouge EdC after sniffing some that hadn't gone bad! I should have known its not supposed to smell like that.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Knit! Although I probably don't need it

    To paraphrase Christopher Walken, "I got a fever. And the only perscription . . . is more vintage!"

    I sold a lot of camera stuff (went from German optics to iPhone4-tography - never woulda believed it 10 years ago). . . there's more coming

    Oops, I think I am in the mood for summer and went crazy for some springtime temptations...
    Gardenia : Isabey
    Heliotrope : Etro
    Osmanthus Interdite : Parfums d'Empire

    Looks like I will be staying in tonight, who cares I reckon I will be smelling superb. Also picked up some samples along the way..

    I also came across the Maria Lux range today. Anyone else think that Truly is a dupe of Chanel No 22?

    Opted to spend the payday scent pennies on more vintage.

    1980s bottle of Miss Dior to keep up my classic chypre quotient.

    I also seem to be buying the UK stock of vintage Poison EDT.

    Oh dear- today was rather an impulsive shopping day.
    Despite already owning enough Fracas to stop a charging herd of elephants I bought 100ml more of vintage EDC , and a backup bottle of one of my favorite Guerlain's Coriolan and a blind buy of Fabuleuse de Leonard . The name Fabuleuse just called to me, LOL.

    Well to update : I've recently bought a giftset of vintage YSL Y -edt,powder,and bathoil (which leeked a third of it's contents in transit),A red edt triangle of Liz Claiborne, partial bottles of pdt Infini ,Ralph Lauren Tuxedo,and Chopard Casmir,a backup-backup-bottle of Versace Dreamer,and a pretty full bottle of Azzaro 9 (from a ebay seller in NY )that decided to go of it's own choosing on a trip to California where it must be trying to get a tan or something 'cause it's been ping-ponging in the post offices there rather than come to the South in Alabama.

    I had my birthday today and got a decent scent haul -from my parents Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial giftset, Discontinued new old stock Tom Ford Azuree Soliel fragrance spray and lotion, and a candle(that smells a LOT like Egoiste )called Rosewood .
    From my grandma-Demeter Snow-I love how it smells COLD!
    and a floral scarf and a necklace.
    From my brother -Salvatore Ferragamo woman,Bijan Bijan,and a gift card .
    My only problem now is what to wear first ..............

    Over the weekend I won auctions on:-

    Part used 1990's vintage Poison edt
    Part used pre 2009 Opium edt
    and my piece de resistance - 90ml Unused in black and white zig zag box Shalimar EDC

    All for less than the cost of a bottle of standard Serge Lutens or Annick Goutal niche

    Congratulations Alityke, especially on the Shalimar EdC! I love that stuff. It sounds like you got some great deals, too. I have been amazed at the vintage treasures that can be had for so much less than the crazy prices on some niche stuff.

    MMm, some stuff arrived.Out of the chocolate scents, I like the orange & choco combo one the most out of these. Allure Blanche,*really* not a fan. Way too lemony for me! And not a good lemon, an obtrusive lemon bomb! My husband was not a fan either and boy does that scent project and last a while. Imho. Hopefully my cedar sample pack will cheer me up.

Shalimar bottle has never been opened but I've broken the bottle seal to try the juice and it is incredibly good for something over 40 years old.

    Thanks rubegon! You can see my review for Parure on Thursday's SotD thread. It will take a bit of time until it is approved and appears in the review section.

    Yay, cause I do like PP but not enough to pay full price, lol.

    I absolutely hate J'dore though..way too much of everything.

    Awesome. That's the way to get what you want. Simply pay for it. I might have to heed my own advice after I research the base notes on your fragrance because now I want it too.

    A big cluster or my "recycled hobby" purchases arrived yesterday. All of this beautiful old juice in exchange for a few old cameras - and I still haven't drained my PayPal balance!

    Pre-reformulation Gris Clair...


    Shalimar Parfum de Toilette with the gold shell:


    Mitsouko Eau de Toilette - gold/black box


    Mitsouko Eau de Cologne - 6oz in zig zag box

    Both the Mitsys are nice and fresh with bright fruity topnotes. I had my first bad Mitsouko last week - a PdT - and returned it. These are older, so I was a bit worried.

    Je Reviens parfum and Eau de Cologne - both vintage


    Habit Rouge Eau de Cologne - a "backup" 500ml bottle in zig zag box


    And, last, but not least ( well - I guess it is least): an Eau de Rochas mini
