    Hermès Eau de Pamplemousse Rose, 200 ml.
    Bond No. 9 Fire Island, 50 ml. It was on sale, so I bought it blind. It's much more... aquatic... than I imagined.

    This April we are either not buying, or not posting, one or another. Look, it is the 20th and collectively we got just about 20 bottles? Just an observation...... And then again, it is mostly quality not quantity that matters, I realize.

    Alright, Twolf I will post something.

    Bought the sampler line of Parfume d'Empire, direct from France. It came with a nice card, and the packaging is wonderful.
    Also bought the sample set from Slumberhouse - Pear + Olive, Sova, Jeke and Norne.

    I gotta admit that if I'm hunting (ebay,thrift shops etc. ) I won't post till I 've haulled my catch home . Just bagged a half a bottle of Gucci Envy (F) and a near full Gucci Accenti (1.7 oz back up bottle). Also must fess up to blind buying ---Bad me. I KNOW!
    It'll totally serve me right if I hate it ..But.. NTesla liked it and others and the notes sounded lovely and with shipping it was ONLY $13.77 .So it's like free right?
    Okay .I got a 70% full capless Balmain Ambre Gris . Bad ? Good ? we'll see.
    Moving on to fess up completely ..
    Michael Kors Suede
    A vintage lot Chanel Coco (slightly off?), Yardley Lavender, 4711,and two wee teensy-tiny minis Givenchey Le De and L'Interdit parfums with boxes .
    Guerlain Mitsouko edt boxed 60% full yellow and gold box (don't know what vintage it is but it smells lovely!)
    a 40% full edt of Dior Dolce Vita .

    I'm waiting on a package that will contain Houbigant Paris Orangers en Fleurs Eau de Parfum and Creed Fleur de Thé Rose Bulgare.

    I think I've blown my perfume budget for a good quarter or so.

    I bought an enormous bottle of White Shoulders EDC for $9.99 at TJ Maxx. It's what I use to scent the wash water for my clothes.

    After releasing myself from a self-imposed moratorium on new purchases, I splurged on Coromandel, Attar de Roses & Epic Woman this month. Now I'm back on restriction for a while.

    Congrats! That's impressive, very grandiose smelling haul!

    My April purchases were mostly discontinued voluptuous spice bombs: Nu EdP and Body cream, Organza Indecence, Kenzo Jungle L'Elephant, and Kenzo Jungle Tigre. And to round things up, 50 ml of Une Fleur de Cassie and 1Oz vintage Chanel No 5 extrait for a song.

    Can you pls compare it to other "famous" fleur d'orangers you know?
    I tried Fragonard's Fleur d'Oranger last year. I found it very powdery; it reminded me of a talc my family used to buy when I was a child, called "Mavis."

    Nice additions yourself, Whitefluffy! The owner of my local perfume shop has Organza Indecence & Jungle L'Elephant testers locked away in her back cabinet, & I've been trying to pry them away from her for the longest time. (I can't convince her that they're discontinued. lol) And that vintage extrait has been a lemming since the aldehyde pass. Great finds!

    Default Re: Today I Bought - April Edition

    Twolf's right -- I forgot to post a purchase from earlier this month

    5ml decants of each of the following:
    • Houbigant Oranger en Fleurs (hooray for us, Nefret!! )
    • Robert Piguet Mademoiselle Piguet
    • Parfums DelRay Mythique
    • Ramon Monegal Impossible Iris

    Plus, 1ml samples of Parfums DelRae Bois de Paradis, Robert Piguet Fracas EDP (current formulation), and Serge Lutens Sa Majeste La Rose.

    Now if only spring would come so that I properly enjoy all these lovely florals!

    Genie and Whitefluffy, you've both had an amazing month!! Wow!

    Some great finds, congrats to all. I just received a bottle of SonomaScentStudio's Rose Volupte, a rosy, plummy, cedar, ambery delight. Have on order a sample set from PK Perfumes, had not heard of Paul before I saw it here the other day, I think there's more then one I might love there. I also ordered today a bottle from Scentmatches, a copy of the original Secret de Venus. I have never purchased from this site before, and really hoping for the best, I do have a small bit left from the 80's to compare it with. SDV de Zibeilene is my HG, along with original Jungle Gardenia and Dana's 20 Carats. We are like alcoholics, aren't we? One is never enough!

    My birthday, train delayed by two hours, stuck in a small town, so I drifted around the perfume counters and wound up buying Ivoire by Balmain...not sure this was a good move.

    I was given Baudelaire, by Byredo, which I love until the burnt rubber dry down and, with my birthday stash of cash bought La Tulipe also by Byredo, which I am finding it easy to love. No more purchases now until my Carnal Flower finally runs dry...

    A wonderful set of three vintage Coty eaux de toilette: L'Aimant, L'Origan, and Emeraude. They arrived today, intact and smelling glorious.



    And some Nude Musk by Ava Luxe. It's delectable and a dead ringer for Perfect Veil.

    Gosh, what a nice set tdem - beautiful! I love Nude Musk, too - Serena's musks are all so tender and graceful, but that one's my very favorite.
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality.

    tdem 1961--wow. I have vintage bottles of Emeraude and L'Origan, too--not quite as old as yours, granted-- and they are beautiful. Seeing all three there in one tidy box jerks a tear from the eye.
