    OP ## 1 and 2: SL La Myrrhe and Amouage Gold -- please remind me when I am sending the next round of packages, OK?

    To answer the question: nothing sounds exciting, no discoveries of a year yet (with one potential, Haunani to be blamed).

    1) Vintage Balenciaga Le Dix
    2) Faberge Babe. Heard it was an incomparable raspberry, and I love 70s style.
    3) ((x3)) Balenciaga La Fuite des Heures vintage, Nina Ricci Fille D'Eve vintage Pure Parfum, or Balmain Elysee 64-83 vintage. I'm going for a Cellier completist experience.
    4) Rabanne XS Extreme Girl or ELdO Tom of Finland for leather heaven.
    5) Vintage Rochas Byzance

    It's not out yet in the USA (at least, not on the website) but when L'Occitane finally starts selling this year's verbena flanker, Verbena/Verveine Sorbet, I will want to try it-- and at the same time, their new eaux, which are already out-- especially Eau Universelle. I'm not driving the distance to the L'Occitane shop until then.I'm also curious about Batucada but I can tell that it is not something I will want to buy. Still I will want to satisfy my curiosity.
    And if the Jo Loves perfumes ever make it to the USA, I'll try a few of them.

    There just isn't anything else calling to me these days. Definitely in a lull.

    1) Hermessence Line (have sample of Ambre Narguile, but want to try the rest)
    2) SL Fumerie Turque
    3) Malle L'Eau d'Hiver
    4) Malle Portrait of a Lady
    5) Agent Provocateur L'Agent

    I have dozens of samples I've purchased and need to try already here at home. I average 1-2 a day. I find I need to wear a fragrance for several hours to really form my opinion, spraying on paper doesn't help me nearly as much.

    1. Anything by Caron that I have not tried yet.
    2. Anything by Mona di Orio. I don't know her scents at all.
    3. Une fleur de Chanel
    4. More Tom Ford's scents
    5. Dior private line

    All of these samples are unavailable in NZ, so the hunt is on

    I finally phoned L'Occitane and asked when their 2012 verbena flanker would be in the store and they said July 3. So I'll be doing a bit of testing next week.

    @ 30 Roses-Let us know how your experience is with that? The only verbena I have tested is that Pure DKNY, it's ok. Maybe I should try a different verbena just to see.

    Posting from home again. Yes, I'll be sure to comment on it. The summer flankers are fun.

    I still think the best verbena out there is Provence Santé Vervain (verbena), and it's bargain priced as well. It often goes on sale for $24 on the following website, but even $30 for 100ml is nothing to complain about! And there are body products that match:

    30R. has introduced the whole Provence Sante lineup to me, their verbena is excellent (I did not know what verbena was before this, seriously).

    Kalli, I might be stopping by the PO next week (or one after that) and I can send all five (or, was it 6?) of them to you. I got the address. I just wish you were leaving an entry on the iTrader.
