    (Actually last month, but I'll post on this current thread...)
    A couple of discovery sets -- The Kilian Collection, and a set of the Neela Vermeire fragrances by Bertrand Douchaufour. Also, this morning on ebay I succumbed to a sealed Chanel No 19 body powder. (Paid through the nose, but had been looking for this for quite a while!)

    Thanks Donna. Off to Escentuals now for A La Nuit. Will join brand alley as well

    A La Nuit purchased. Mini of L'Eau gratis too.

    I did note the price is 15% off RRP rather than their previous price which I seem to remember was £52 but if they can no longer keep to the lower price it's cheaper than anywhere else

    Kalli I was the grateful recipient of an 8ml decant from the rehoming thread and have used it at the speed of light. It even helps me sleep!

    Also 30mls of Original Chloe EDT to feed my floral craving arrived today. Astounding a chypre girl has fallen for so many BIG florals

    I bought some Commando perfume oil from Smell Bent.
    May be a few weeks before we're united however, as I mistakenly had it sent to my mother's home address. Not sure what I was doing/thinking/drinking....

    You seem to have become my enabler, I've had to hide the Chanels to prevent eBay lemmings!

    I once gave my GP the number of my girlhood home. One very confused lady on the receiving end of a call from my GP. My only excuse was I was ill.

    I'm excited I've been looking for a vintage bottle for quite a long time but today, when I entered a shop in Florence and saw a single bottle of the current Parfum left unattended on a shelf, I couldn't resist.

    I got a 75 ml bottle of Chanel no. 18. Sentimental reasons . No. 18 was the first perfume review I did for AromiErotici's blog and brings back special memories of my time there. It is one of my favorite Chanel Les Exclusifs but never bought it till now.
