    Default I can't wait to open these up!

    Some recent purchases. Chanel and Dior are from the very generous Bloomingdale's gift card I received. Pure malt was pure curiosity. I don't know why I haven't opened them yet though, they're just sitting in my mini frig. It's been a couple weeks, but it just doesn't feel like the right time yet. Do any of you do this?

    Yes, there's something about the anticipation of an unopened gift, even when you know what it is!

    very true, and I haven't ever smelled the Chanel or PM so it's extra exciting.

    I own Allure Blanche which is lovely. Let us know what you think of Allure Sport.

    I hope you enjoy AHS but I'm really not a fan. Fahrenheit is fantastic though IMO.

    I don't always start using stuff immediately. Three months ago I bought an unused bottle of Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme Concentrated Cologne, and even though I'm looking forward to trying it, I haven't yet done so...

    that fahrenheit cellophane would be shredded by now, and the room basting in petroleum goodness... if it were mine.

    A couple weeks? What are you waiting for? Open them up! Use them, you got them for a reason.

    Indeed, great choices, rewarding enough to justify eagerly anticipating their opening (simply because, in my opinion, these fragrances are good enough to be worth the wait).

    I do.

    If I'm emotionally preoccupied I won't touch a new perfume. I let a bottle of Turtle Vetiver Front sit in my closet for 8 months. I only cracked it open, decanted half for a friend then put it back. Finally felt comfortable trying it a few months ago. By that time Turtle Vetiver back was already released. I've done this with other perfumes too.

    I'll do it when I'm ready thank you.

    for swap/sale:

    So, you're not going to open it until you get somethingelse?
