    Great choices, fragranceman - those are both real beauties. Enjoy them!

    This was a gift w/ purchase, Judith Leiber's Judith Leiber Night. I wore this last night to dinner and really enjoyed it. It's an incense-y oriental with cinnamon, amber, sandalwood and patchouli, peony and jasmine ....and a very delicious and non-fruity gourmand element to it that I find utterly irresistible, probably that sweet and luscious amber. Honestly, it's really not very original, but it is very nice, and a pleasant surprise. It's actually right up my alley - I'll definitely wear this.

    Whilst BN was down, I scooped up another bottle of '80s formulation No.5 EdP. Perfect condition, never opened and still had the advertising insert tucked down the side of the bottle. All for the same price as a new bottle

    LOL! It was from some obscure Italian seller on eBay.
    It didn't show up on a regular search, but, I know my
    way around eBay.

    Annick Goutal Ce Soir ou Jamais EDP 1.7 oz
    Caron Narcisse Noir EDT 3.4 oz

    Both blind buys. I hope I like it. Got it for a fantastic price and knew I won't get such a great deal again.

    Outstanding hauls there everyone! Well jel as they say in Essex!

    Thankfully I haven't been the originator of this thread this month, thereby avoiding a shameful hatrick. Only by a timing error though.

    Today Mr Postie brought the vintage full, untouched 125ml of Tuvache Jungle Gardenia in box. I opened it with due reverence and the juice is Purrfect

    Tomorrow Mr Postie is due to deliver an unloved part bottle of vintage Choc de Cardin in box. This is one of my all time favourite bitter whooshy astringent chypres and rare as rocking horse droppings.

    He should also be carrying with due reverence a part bottle in box of vintage, original Chanel Gardenia extrait. I am soooo giddy about this so fingers crossed these are perfect.

    I also got 2 small decants of vintage 1930s L'Heure Bleue and vintage Lanvin Mon Peche from the same impeccable source and 2 larger decants of SL Bois de Violette and Profumum Roma Confetto which have been on my wanted list for some time.

    Now to lie down in a darkened room nd surgical removal of my debit card. If any of my purchases came from you. Thank you!

    I spent wayyyyy too much this month, but it happens every fall.

    Today I bought the Xerjoff Shooting Stars Discovery Set (masculine, I already have the feminine ones) and the Xerjoff Sospiro Discovery Set, and a bunch of Bois 1920 Notturno Fiorentino samples.

    @Fragranceman88, I LOVE Paestum Rose. My husband would never wear it but it would have smelled so wonderful on a man!

    E., inquiring minds would like to know what The Purchase was, please.

    Nothing for me, still going to school. Eyeing and smelling another Amouage, the one that I do not quite understand and it will take me time to tangle out of its charms.

    Oh, just a darling little evening bag I'd been eyeing for a while. I jumped when it went on sale, the perfume was lagniappe. Wanna see?

    Actually, it smells a lot like the aforementioned perfume that came with it, especially when I open it. The sales lady sprayed it on a card and tucked it in there before wrapping it up for me, then I forgot about it and left it for a few weeks, resulting in a very lovely and fragrant surprise. It'll probably smell that way for a while ...good thing I like it!

    I have only tried this twice - on paper - and didn't like it. But there we go, it has everything I should like in it so my assumption is, it will grow on me :')

    Another bottle of The One. If I can't find anything like it with better longevity, I may as well decant some!
