    Congratulations, Lucas, that sounds like a really nice one! I'm sure you'll love the Rose Oud too, it's very good!

    Oh Lucas, I'll be curious to read your impressions of Rose Oud - that's one of my favorite rose perfumes in the whole world!


    For my very last fragrant gifts to myself for a while (at least before Christmas!) I finally decided I needed a back-up of Iris Ganache (what a relief to have more before it's gone for good!) and I finally gave in to the lovely Miss Dior Le Parfum. There now ...I really should be quite content for several months.

    I had a tiny spritz immediately when unpacked it and I think it's going to be an interesting friendship. Thank you ♥

    Will definitely describe my thoughts at Chemist in the Bottle. Congrats on your Iris Ganache! I would love to try it, but no Guerlain boutiques here...

    Today I bought a bottle of EA Green Tea Intense near full /no cap for a buck at the thrift store! My other bottle I bought last year at Ulta was $39.99! Woot! Also got a bottle of Rue 21 Revert eco,and a purse size Lavendertherapy by the healing gardens(hey-I like it).
    Yesterday I went to BBW and got the mini of Forever Red -BLECH! it goes back later today smelled like a cheapo knockoff of a Escada fruit syrup scent .Trust me .All the hype about better expensive ingredients is utter hooey.
    Also bought some backup Replique and Madness on Ebay recently.

    Nice buys! Great deal on the EA, Janet.

    I used a 20% fragrancenet coupon to buy Van Cleef & Arpels les Saisons Automne- which completes the set for me.

    Oh, I just love to see what everybody is getting! It always gives me naughty ideas

    I am out of town trying to get a draft of a novel completed and do some healing. And I found the following and could not, just could not walk away. Like I needed more Shalimar.... But I did not have this gorgeous bottle, and I had no Vol de Nuit. My hotel rooms smells like a skanky, woodsy, spicy heaven.

    I bought Ormonde Jayne's Ormonde Woman and Champaca.

    They have a brilliant offer where I get a 17.5ml flacon of Tolu extract free. Couldn't pass it up.

    I purchased samples from LuckyScent. They have been on my test list for a few months, and I finally decided to cave in and get them all. I'm going to need to give my sniffer a few breaks in between testings.

    I've become very fickle lately, or maybe I just succumbed to the confusion surrounding all the Miss Diors/Miss Dior Chéries, but I took that lovely Miss Dior Le Parfum back and swapped it for Miss Dior Eau de Parfum, which is the one I think I liked best initially anyway, so I'm not even sure how I ended up thinking it was Le Parfum, which to my nose smells a lot like Yves Rocher's Rose Absolue, which isn't a bad thing, but it's not the one I really wanted ...which I now have.

    Here it is, the correct one, Miss Dior Eau de Parfum -

    Great buys everyone!

    I bought samples from First in Fragrance:
    - Parfum d'Empire Equistrius
    - Parfum d'Empire Cuir Ottoman
    - Heeley Cuir Pleine Fleur
    - Heeley Ophelia
    - Houbigant Orangers en Fleurs
    - DelRae Mythique

    I am especially looking forward to trying Cuir Pleine Fleur and Cuir Ottoman now that I am keen to explore leather scents.

    Just glad you got the one you wanted! I smelled Miss Dior last night for a few hours, in different concentrations. Went into Sephora and used cards and my sleeves and skin to trial run it. They are all so good, but on me they just "poof" into nothingness so fast. I am going to look for more vintage Diors and see if I can find something that will hang on my skin better!

    Today, buying, Alliage and going antique shop rambling. Will post buys later on.

    today i finally purchased proper vintage SHALIMAR EDC in a zigzag box SEALED

    now i have no stress it will be fake or whatever, its 165ml though the size of the bottle was a bit weird, as i was expecting either 3 or 6 oz, this is 5.5 but was made in europe , but i have no worries now, btw many dont ship to EU so i think USA peeps have very good advantage !

    do you know what age that might be? i thought its from 70s?

    thanks Rubegon for nice advice!!! appreciate it very much!

    and congrats for Insolence!! i have it too...and smells fantastic....drydown last and lasts and is among best in modern perfumery ...oh that reminds me i wore just a dab of La Myrrhe today too...and this is excelent scent, perfect drydown too!!

    Congratulations, livanita! That's a great find. I think I have seen that size before. As you say, it may have been for the euro market. If the bottle has a glass stopper it's one of the older ones - late 60s if its a zig zag box, I think. A good screw cap is likely 70s or early 80s.

    i happy I could help. Enjoy!

    I did a sale/swap before hubs lost his job..I got rid of a vintage I never used and acquired Field Notes From Paris. I much prefer Evening Edged In Gold but the really good deal was on Field Notes. Though, I think I have to be lighter on the sprays, lol..forgot how concentrated it is. Got a little sprayer happy! A fairly good one for this cold weather we've been having.

    Back from the sunny Canary Isles feeling relaxed but dreading work tomorrow. Had something of a splurge over there.

    100ml Prada Infusion Pour Homme for youngest son.
    Found a gift pack of Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel with aftershave and EDT hidden away in a tiny back street perfumery which I just had to get for Mr Ali. Also found a pristine 15ml bottle of extrait of Oscar de la Renta Volupte which of course came home with me.

    Also found the mythical beast Guerlain Idylle Duet Jasmin-Lilas which has now joined its twin in my collection and at long last got a bottle of 10 Corso Como.

    Finally a gift set of Myrugia Maja for mum. Best soaps in the world with a cute 25ml EdP spray.

    Expensive week!
