    My only other january perfume purchase was a 30ml bottle of samsara edp for €38 in the boots sale (not as 'loud' as I remember - it is almost subtle on me - love it).
    I hadn't bought any perfume since summer - trying to keep my spending in check!
    Yeah!!! You finally got it!!! Now, do keep going after the parfum Both are wonderful.

    Thanks for the encouragement Cello :-) I already have a 75ml of bois des iles I bought in july, but I wear it several days every week so I'm draining it faster than any perfume I've ever owned! I love catching little whiffs of it throughout the day. I will eventually get a bottle of the parfum.

    We have a few likes in common cello - bois des iles, cuir de russie, iris poudre & cadjmere to name a few!

    I found these bottles at a flea market last weekend.
    Most of them modern bottles, but one is particularly
    interesting. A 50ml bottle of vintage Ô Intense, EdP.

    ... yes, the deo stick is sealed! So is the soap bar!

    Danny! Nice. And I, personally, love the photography. It is "original".

    Ebay has lured me again...This is what I get for having Christmas cash and getting a nasty cold on Christmas day Zero resistance..Do you think it could be a medical side effect?

    Half a bottle of Jungle L'Elephant 'bout $18 shipped,and a tube of Enjoy lotion,and shower gel,and a mini for $14.50 shipped.
    Total blind buy on the Kenzo .Based on glowwing reviews Youtube Teresa and Basenotes'Ducky get the blame or praise for this one.

    I already own a 100ml bottle of this, but I stumbled upon a brand new 50ml bottle on ebay for a great price. I couldn't resist.

    I'm staying strong. No purchases in January so far. Though the samples I ordered before the end of last year are arriving regularly so will keep me out of mischief

    I spent my Christmas gift certificate to Love Potions - a little nervous about trying pheromones. I love sexy fragrances, but pheromones might go over the edge for me into manipulation...

    I read some of the input on their boards, and there are some true horror stories about slathering themselves down with the juices before heading out clubbing, to attract a partner. Couldn't they smell themselves before they went out of the house? Pretty funny.

    I also put in an order to Surrender to Chance - lots of samples and decants, which I'm really looking forward to, and finally a decant of Jicky. What took me so long to appreciate it? It's great stuff. I'm getting the edp.

    Lush are discontinuing many of the original fragrances. So bought a 30mls Breath Of God for half price, I do own a 15mls already but the deal was too good to let go.

    I finally ordered the Musk tonkin, too, which I have longed for way to long, and tossed in a bottle of Ambre Sultan, plus a backup on gucci Rush just because the price was great. Going to sell off a lot of bottles so I figured its forgivable

    If I ever go to Denmark one day, lol I would need to find that lovely flea market!

    Danny, I like that Armani pic, I'd like to see it in black and white as well.

    Well, I celebrated Boxing Day late, hehe..instead of having something I would never ever use, I got Briar Rose and Bottega Veneta.

    I've been wanting a vintage bottle of Vol de Nuit extrait for a long time, and finally got it. It's a 2.5 oz. bottle, apparently 1950s vintage, sealed in box.

    Flying back from Japan today, went to the Hermès shop at Narita. Got a gift set of four 15 ml Hermessences: Iris Ukiyoé, Poivre Samarcande, Vanille Gallant, and Santal Massoïa. It turned out to be somewhat cheaper than had I gotten them at the Hermès boutique here. About $130 versus $145 plus tax. The SA quoted me at $123 for the current exchange rate.

    I've been crazy for soft and sensuous musks lately, and I just placed an order for Pearl Musk by Ava Luxe.
    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

    Buying vintage VdN always terrifies me R. I have bought vintage VdN in the past that has turned and really couldn't be worn at all...that particular note in the top notes (jonquil?) just smells absolutely horrible when it ages improperly. I hope yours smells wonderful. I happen to be thoroughly enjoying my 'new' VdN parfum that I got last year, so I'm set myself.
