    Default Today I bought - March 2013 edition

    I'm surprised there's no thread for our March purchases on this nicer side of Basenotes forum. Guys there are, as always, buying like crazy.

    Today I'd like to share my birthday perfume. It's Carner Barcelona D600

    A fragrant souvenir from a business trip my husband just returned from ...probably needless to say but I'm over the moon!

    Snap Evangeline! Lyric woman and Memoir woman were given as a belated Valentines day gift to me on the 1st of March (way cheaper in dubai duty free) Thanks hubby!

    I finally purchased two things off my wish list: Profumum Roma Dulcis in fundo and Acqua e zucherro.

    Happy Birthday! I just got a bottle of D600 as well, along with Caron Accord 119 and MFK Lumiere Noire. The D600 bottle is quite hefty, and would also make for an attractive paper weight.

    A backup 100ml bottle of Givenchy Organza Indecence (it's the first time I've ever found it at any bricks-and-mortar store, and I found here locally!) and a 50ml bottle of the fabulous Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia (came with a free travel size).

    Cool Re: Today I bought - March 2013 edition

    Well, happy birthday to me! Landed a 4 oz bottle of Weil de Weil splash PdT on eBay for a bargain-ish BuyItNow price. This is the version and bottle style I had in the early 80s, and I have to think I got some good perfume karma from sending my last bottle on a sample pass. Bitter Grace Notes calls it "the smell of a swamp in paradise." Hello, spring!

    The Farmacia Ss. Annunziata fairies gave me a big bottle of Ambra Nera for my birthday. J'adore. Sigh...

    Enjoying the pass, still unconverted to the more modern aldehydes, I like the vintage L'interdit the best so far. I plan to devote some quiet time this weekend to exploring the Chanels. History through my nose!

    So happy for you jujy and your Weil de Weil! Congrats! You most certainly deserve very good karma from the Weil pass: this pass was easily the most educational perfume experience for me to date. But speaking of modern aldehydes...

    I bought and it must be the brandy speaking...

    100 ml of Le Labo Aldehyde 44
    75 ml of Chanel, 28 La Pausa
    75 ml of Chanel, Coromandel

    My wallet must be screaming, but I don't hear it. I am just celebrating perfume, wonderful things, and life in general

    Picked up some "vintage" 2010 Dior Homme. It seems strange using the word vintage but things change so often here it could mean anything older than last week.

    Finally ordered some Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDP, and still undecided as to whether I should have just ordered the EDT instead. Oh, well, it's on its way. Probably will also acquire the little black bottle sooner or later.

    Oh, Whitefluffy, I just saw this! Congrats on the Chanels! And of course the Le Labo too, but those are two wonderful Exclusifs from Chanel. Enjoy them all!!!

    My first full bottle of Frederic Malle for my birthday present to myself: Une Fleur de Cassie. The Barneys SA is also throwing in samples of FM Dries van Noten and Lys Mediterranee, Byredo La Tulipe, Arquiste Boutonniere No. 7, and Le Labo Neroli. Woo hoo!

    Vintage Guerlain Chamade EdC on ebay. Seller in Mexico, so I'll have to be patient. Let's hope it's a good one!

    No full bottles for me in awhile. The last one was Elixir des Merveilles which I bought a couple of months ago; I can't remember when. But I've finally ordered some samples from The Perfumed Court!! Samples included are Chanel no. 19, Diorella, Chamade, L'Heure Bleue, and Mitsouko EDP. Also Amazone and Un Jardin Apres la Mousson by Hermes. So excited!!!

    I think I just bought my first proper niche fragrance. Yes, it's a part used bottle and it's a blind buy, but it was less than £6 so I refuse to feel guilty about it.

    So I just bought about 30ml of Illuminum Arabian Amber (she says, crossing her fingers and hoping it doesn't get damaged in the post)

    oh jujy. I'll bet that Chamade EDC will be gorgeous!!

    Well hello strangers on a thread . Haven't been here since since Dec. I now have a car payment (after 15 years without one) so I have avoided buying new fumes and am shopping from my more than exhaustive wardrobe. But I could not resist the temptation of a 20% off pafum1 coupon to buy a Micallef and Gentile sample sets.

    Tuscany Per Donna by EL. Got a new bottle..after returning a slightly used one off Ebay. The Ebay one..well, let's just say the juice was a thick, dark urine color(not to be gross, that's just what I thought when I saw it) and had an acidic 'nail polish' accord to it LOL. The juice is supposed to be light and pink-blushed. So, I returned the Ureene Noir and got a new one. It's one of my all time faves.
