    Default I Bought May 2013

    Diptyque Volutes.

    I went to a SpaceNK Diptyque event today, lovely lady named Caroline from Diptyque came over from London.

    She went through the history of the company, starting with the candles. It was all very interesting. She is also sending me loads of samples.

    Just bought a bunch of samples from SmellBent. I couldn't resist those prices after reading some of the fun names and crazy reviews over on the Perfume Posse!

    Diptyque Voltes is on my to-buy list, too.

    So far just some samples:Le Labo Iris 39, VC&A Bois d'Iris, Frapin Speakeasy, Annick Goutal Vanilla Exquise, LAP Vanille Absoluement.

    I have been staying very far away from the mall. I really want some BV Eau Legere. And Volutes.

    ErinK, welcome to Basenotes. I also saw your post about the Exciting exotic fragrance and happen to wholeheartedly agree.

    Hope you can enjoy it here as much as we all do.

    Thank you for the kind welcome!

    I have been a NST, Basenotes, etc., reader (lurker) for years, learning about perfume and dreaming about the day when I could afford to actually start getting into this scent world. I am finally at a place where I can afford to order samples and start exploring. I love getting a package of samples in the mail and sitting down with them, sampling and reading everything I can about each one. I spent this past Friday night that way and enjoyed it every bit as much as I would have enjoyed a night out on the town.

    I am excited to keep learning!

    Well, a good starting point will be creating a functional Wardrobe (with To Test list, certainly, in the range of 100-150 fragrances you are interested in), jumping in into the discussion -- our SotD threads are remarkable in the sense that they give you a peek into our day-to-day lives and not just listing fragrances we wear, participating in Sample Passes (they are free, the only thing you pay for is shipping to the next participant), and reading as much as you can.

    Today I bought DIOR ADDICT - AND I AM ADDICTED TO THIS. Does Thierry Wasser design EVERYTHING??!!

    Also, today my beautiful bottle of vintage Faberge Tigress pure perfume arrived in the mail. It's a beautiful glass bottle with a metal basketweave top, nestled in a velvet-lined, now-faded, tiger print box. I love this very spicy and vanilla-ish perfume! I wish the silage was greater. My cat, the MINI-TIGRESS. likes this, too!

    I bought a whole load of samples that I have no chance of ever affording to buy a full sized bottle of (from by Kilian to Sisley) and then splashed out (major splurge for me) £20 on a part used bottle of Shalimar Parfum Initial L'eau.

    I think that's it for this month, as I've spent £70 on a huge chest of drawers for the bedroom, a new cupboard for my perfume and a nest of mango wood tables for the living room.

    My first FB purchase this year; (l have been very restrained since splashing out on that bottle of Stoned last autumn!) a 30ml EDP of Armani Acqua di Gioia, that came with a free 20ml purse spray. This one seems to get knocked quite a bit, but l enjoy its long-lasting citrus-mojito vibe, & l'm looking forward to wearing it this summer. Assuming we get a summer.
