    Blind eBay buy based on notes, and a good one at that . After a brisk green opening, Balahé shares a lot with Habanita, especially heliotrope, with the addition of some dirt I perceive as cumin. A great bad-girl fragrance which will be in heavy rotation when I teach high school—gotta let'em know who's boss!

    The bank account blood-letting continues ...

    Tubereuse Criminelle (50ml export bottle) and HdP 1804 - George Sand (60ml) (plus free with purchase samples -- I know they were florals, but I can't remember which ones).

    The following 1ml samples from STC: Annick Goutal Neroli and Ninfeo Mio, Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue, Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau, Houbigant Orangers en Fleurs, Jo Malone Orange Blossom, Robert Piguet Bandit, and Robert Piguet Mademoiselle Piguet.

    Yes, it's true. I haven't tried Bandit yet.

    Dries Van Noten par Frédéric Malle. I've seen the odd complaint about projection and longevity, but I am finding that not to be the case at all. It might even be a single spritz fragrance for me.

    Oh that is so sweet but I don't really do tuberose or musky and see those listed in there, so sorry! Didn't mean to sound like I was dropping a hint for a sample, if it sounded like it! Thanks so much though, jujy! That black bottle is nice though. Are you a big tuberose fan?

    Nefret, I haven't heard of that one either, enjoy!

    kalli, I'm loving tuberose more and more. Also jasmine and gardenia.

    Lost out on Infini parfum on eBay, consoled myself with EdP of same at a reasonable Buy It Now price. Won a Zibeline PdT, looks like 1980s or 90s bottle, so it's vintage but not ancient. I think that's it for my "well my birthday was this month" rationalization. Time to stop spending and start smelling!

    Is this the new one that is in magazines now? If so, I very much liked the paper strip. It kind of reminded me of Eternity with the sparkling opening. How is it?

    Dior Addict- impulse buy from department store after sampling on wrist.

    Concentre d'Orange Verte- finally reupped!

    A small purse sized bottle of CK Obsession Night, the second time buying this scent.

    Oh, nice misscasey - I love Dior Addict! I see you've come around a bit regarding sweet perfumes - Addict's one of the sweetest in my collection, but also wonderfully rich and luscious and so very addictive. Enjoy it!

    I grabbed a bottle of Prada Infusion d'Iris body lotion this afternoon, to go with my Infusion d'Iris Absolue which isn't offered in a lotion, but I've tried them together and they get along very well.
    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

    Sounds good, Evangeline! I tried Infusion d'Iris and quite liked it. Considered a bottle for myself as well. That, to me, is almost bitter where Addict is sweet, but maybe that is just me. I'm glad that your lotion worked out for you. I've been thinking of trying lotions lately too to accompany and layer with my scents. You are right! I have somewhat come around to sweeter scents- I think having tried some of the later Diors has done the trick- I adore both Addict and Hypnotic Poison.

    Oh dear. Created a lemming you have. Love bad girl fragrances. Mini about to be bought. I just purchased Noora, which has been sitting in my Amazon cart for months after reading a review about this one.

    I have just acquired L'Artisan Vanille Absolument (50 mL) and a Shiseido Feminite du Bois splash (50 mL). And I don't know why, since neither seem likely to be worn in the warmer weather that I am hoping is around the corner!

    My husband surprised me with a bottle of Jo Malone Orange Blossom. I think I'll keep him

    I have a friend coming for a visit this week whose been going on and on about how much she loves Isaac Mizrahi Fabulous, but can't afford a bottle yet. Wont she be surprised when I hand her the box I found at Ross for $30!

    I received Six Scents Wicken and a backup of Yosh Trompeur recently. I'm waiting for SoOud Burqa and a split of Norma Kamali Incense to be delivered this week.

    Yves Rocher Orange and Chocolat. I really liked this one when I sniffed it when I first started getting into fumes, hopefully, I will still like it, lol. I remember it doesn't last wortha beans though! But I do like that orange chocolate combo. I do really need to try that orange and chocolate by Jo Malone at some point.

    I have forgotten to update this thread with my March acquisitions. Bad bad scentsucker!!

    Ok, most of these are gifts from my amazing, hopelessly generous husband:

    Guerlain Gourmand Coquin
    Atelier Cologne Vanilla Insensee
    Heeley Sel Marin
    Trish McEvoy Sexy #9 Blackberry and Vanilla

    I've bought for myself:

    A partial bottle of Mona di Orio Musc from a fellow BNer

    I've also managed to give away my Bois d'armenie to a dear friend who went GAGA over it. I've kept a decant, but I'll have to repurchase this one at some point I'm sure!

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think I'm done for March now!

    I'm so sad; the Fracas arrived completely empty. The box was secure but the stopper in the wee bottle wasn't. On a happier note; I adore Carnal Flower! My second ever tuberose.

    Also purchased recently, Ambre 114 by Histoires de Parfums & Encre Noire Pour Elle by Lalique. I tried the Encre Noir but found it TOO manly (never thought I'd ever say THAT) for my tastes.

    Thanks, cello. I was introduced to it (Amber 114) a few years ago & liked it. It's only turned to "I love this!" recently.
