    15 ml bottle of Le Labo Iris 39 to go with the massage oil - so luxurious.
    small decants of Le Labo...Vanille 44 blind buy on way as we speak
    10 mls of a bottle split with matildaben of Shalimar Ode de La Vanille sur la Madagascar apres Vegas
    and one full (albeight small) bottle of Chanel Bois des Iles on the way.

    Quarry, that will be one great smelling truck!
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    LOL Quarry 's truck!

    Rene, I got a bottle of that Shalimar Madagascar in LV too. Mben is an enabling influence on me


    *At Barney's - Byredo Pulp and matching lotion (finally pulled the trigger after two years of lust)
    *At Guerlain-the aforementioned Shalimar LE and a Guerlain lipstick & Meteorites in Transparent (coveted since NOLA)
    * At Neiman's- Maison Francis K Lumiere Noire Femme- tested Friday at Skins, bought Sunday
    * At Dior- a mascara
    * At skins 6/2- a Deborah Lippman nail polish that changes from bronze to a peacock green depending on the light and a red lip stain.

    It's very rare I pay retail or go for these high end brands in the makeup dept, so these were HUGE treats. I try to buy something at each location the sniff visits, tho. Now that I'm home, I better use this stuff up

    The EDP? Beautiful, I have about 5mls of samples of the stuff Amazing. Although Rubj EDP is haunting me to a point where I KNOW I'll have it by the end of the year - amazing.

    Grand Duc- WOW on the Shocking. Congrats!
    Evangeline- nice Judith Leiber. Love her belts!
    Alityke- rare as rocking horse droppings? That's one helluvah phrase. Always curious about Choc, being that it's a Francoise Caron. Love her work ...

    In September I traveled a lot, shopping at every stop, some major highlights were:
    Jicky pdt, pre-reformulation Azuree, older Hypnotic Poison edt, 70s Magie Noire, a full boxed set of early 80s Balmain parfums, and vintage extrait of Tea Rose--so so so much better than the current.

    And on eBay: Wrappings, Talisman, older Jungle L'Elephant, and like Alityke I also went for vintage extrait minis of Panthere and Must de Cartier-- in spite of not being able to do Obsession and hearing Must was no good, it's great!

    Yes, I know I have a serious problem. But it's one of my more pleasant ones Now shifting to decants 'till Christmas ...yesterday I ordered decants of: Santa Maria Novella Potpourri, McQueen Kingdom, Etat Libre d'Orange Eloge du Traitre, newer Diorella, and Nahema parfum. It's joyous to confess these hauls to you who understand when I would die if anyone IRL knew! And what fun to read/see your treasures. I've missed it.

    Sounds like you had a blast. Blaming Matildaben? Might she blame you in return for her purchases?

    possibly the Lumiere Noire- the SA was adding a travel size of your choice to the purchase and mben had mentioned she might buy the LN, too. soooooooo....it went from there

    I had been mulling over Gucci guilty and ysl cinema for weeks as an easy fall designer fragrance, but the second I sniffed the new miss Dior le parfum I ordered it immediately. No mulling. It's stunning and I'm completely enamored. I may still get the other two but will maybe wait for holiday gift cards for those...

    Me too!! Well, I'm smitten with it but haven't bought it yet ...but I can't pass Saks without going in and letting it tease me a bit more. It was a surprise that I even sniffed it because I was mad at Dior, but I must admit that I just adore this new Miss Dior Le Parfum! I've acquired too many new perfumes lately, but I might just let this one be my last one for a while.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    I'd never even bothered to try the other Miss Dior's (and Cherie's) on my skin much less buy them...But this one looked different when i passed it...and the name caught my eye because it said Le Parfum but had a spray nozzle...i thought that very odd, so that's why I even picked it up in the first place. Once I smelled it, I knew it was totally different...a real triumph, I think. I know I shouldn't have bought it, but there was not one minute of hesitation (I usually hesitate a bit before purchasing unless it's a huge bargain)! It's so so so great. I even slept with the touche near my pillow so I'd get a waft of it every now and again...Luvverly.

    Coconut very nice haul indeed!

    My decants and minis all arrived along with a mixed bunch of Artisan samples. All in perfect condition

    Disappointingly my PG Tonkemande doesn't appear to have even been posted yet. Can anyone tell me how long Les Senteurs usually take to dispatch?

    10ml bottles of Von Eusersdorff fragrances:

    Classic Patchouli
    Classic Vetiver
    Classic Myrrh
    Classic Mimosa



    Didn't buy though :P Gifted from the company
    They're all lovely perfumes. The mimosa I'm absolutely loving, the patchouli is what it is - a stunning camphorous patchouli, the myrrh is a brilliant violet/cedar/incense, and the vetiver more of a grapefruit, lemon tea thing with clean vetiver (my least favourite).

    I bought Si Lolita Lempicka and it arrived yesterday. Reminds me of a more peppery D&G The One. A bit masculine and overpowering on first spray, but very warm and cozy on the drydown. I layered it with some Victoria's Secret lotion with a caramel-hazelnut fragrance (can't remember the name now lol) and they work together wonderfully.
