A*Men Pure Leather by Thierry Mugler
Alviero Martini Uomo.
I have $275, and I'm eyeing Guerlain's S. Double Vanille. Someone talk me out of it.
Go down to Tijuana to a store called LIVERPOOL. It is located on Paseo De Los Heroes. You can buy bottles directly from the French Market with no tax. You will get a much better deal than in the states.
Lucky You for being in SD. TJ is safe during the day. Bring a passport.

My wife and kids bought me Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum for my birthday today! Happy camper am I!
So far in August:
Currently waiting for in the mail:
I'm very new to the world of fragrances and these have all been blind buys Thankfully, I'm satisfied with all of them (Edition Blanche being my favorite so far, I have yet to try Pure Malt in public..looking forward to that this weekend). I can't wait to try out l'homme and The One as well once they come in, I'm hoping these will be my more versatile fragrances that I can wear casually.
Finally got my act together, and got the S. Double Vanille.
Comme des Garcons 2 Pocket Size
My Hammam Bouquet just arrived (bought in the Cheapsmells Bank Holiday sale) and I've got Chopard's Noble Vetiver on order from the same source for a good price.

£99.95 for 120ml at CheapSmells - it arrived today, and it's great!
L'Artisan Tea For Two.
I recently bought givenchy play intense
I'm currently waiting on an order of Bvlgari Black, Encre Noir and backup-bottles of Noble Cedar and Noble Vetiver (two each); another of Cologne du 68, and another of Joop! Nightflight, L'anarchiste, Avant Garde and three bottles of Joop! Rococo because I heard it was discontinued.
Last time I went to my local fragrance store I bought three cofrets of Casran because it's been discontinued and I couldn't find bottles on their own, and two bottles of Lanvin Vetiver as it, too, has been discontinued. At the same mall the chemist had a little bottle of JPG Le Male for $29, which I bought (though I dislike it, plan to give it to someone) and every bottle they had of Diesel Plus Plus femenine because it TOO has been discontinued (GRRRR!) and I dig it and it was ten freaking dollars.
I'm waiting on a few stores to get Eau de Guerlain in stock because I need it now the weather is turning warmer (assuming it isn't discontinued by then!) that will be my next purchase. Also, assuming I find no bargains or special cases I'm probably set until next winter, or they discontinue something else I enjoy. Grrr.
I bought yet another bottle of Burberry London and a bottle of Burberry touch
