    Default What perfumes did you buy while Basenotes was down, if any at all?

    I got a bit of Chanel No. 5 EDT. Thanks Twolf for getting my interest in this one.

    Anyone else?.

    Well, I actually JUST purchased the Keiko Mecheri Bespoke Coffret and a bottle of Frapin Espirit de Fleurs (on special at Luckyscent this month)

    I made the decision to purchase small bottles/decants to explore more of what is out there instead of FB's. I'm going to try for samplers and coffrets for a while I think. We'll see how well I stick to that. I really want a couple of SL's, Santal Majuscule and Chypre Rouge so those may get bought in amongst the samples.

    I've been eyeing the Amouage sampler set, but will have to do that one another month.

    None in these one or two days, though I made a couple of ebay bids. I did receive a small bottle of lotion temeraire by rigaud, unfortunately completely gone. It must have been a plain light citrus freshener.

    Nice and congrats Danieq! I haven't really sniffed much of KM scents and haven't smelled that Frapin. How is that KM jasmine scent? Did you get it yet?

    Hedonist...that Jasmin T sounds really nice..I may have to seek a sample!!

    My bottle of Divine L'homme Infini came in while BN was down. Kept me company until now.

    I picked up 3 decants, all re-runs of other decants I recently emptied. I'm holding off buying full bottles until next year, but all 3 of these decants are on my FBW list:

    Parfumerie Generale Cadjmere and Cuir d'Iris

    I don't remember it being very heavy on clove like some of the Caron perfumes if you're familiar with them.
    It's more of a concentrated dirty jasmine on moist greenness.

    Great purchases, hedonist. Is that a Dubai beach, or an Abu Dhabi one? and is that your car?

    The Ylang is on my tb list, and am curious about the acampora as well.

    Yes that's my dusty car.
    The post office is right by the beach...thought a quick photo world be nice.
    This is Dubai.
    We have better beaches in Abu Dhabi. The sand is softer on this side (a play on the grass is greener....).

    I knew you'd like Ylang 49 because you like Iris 39.
    They, along with Santal 33, were made by the same perfumer- Frank Voelkl.

    I haven't sniffed the Frapin either, it's a blind buy and quite impulsive, but I've yet to smell a Frapin I didn't love so I have a hopeful attitude.

    I just received the KM last night! It is very lovely and I'm so thankful to Scentfan for sending it along. Now to find her info so I can send her a proper thank you.

    I've yet to figure out how to find the posts I've subscribed to.

    I bought Chanel pour Monsieur's bath and shower gel. It's a good starting point for any kind of perfume. However, in my darkest moments I believe it smells similar to the shower gel of Azzaro pour Homme, which of course can be had for 10 instead of 30 coins...
    I also bought a new bottle of Jicky EdP. Let's see how it stands the comparison with an Eau-de-Parfum-formulation of 6 years ago.

    Not as old as one would LIKE, but okay - I reckon about three years ago, still nice. Funnily enough they were the last two 100mls in HK, which I find very strange, I figured it was a slow seller here.

    Yeah, me too. I got some Annick Goutal Eau D'Hadrien and the postie delivered the Molinard Vanille that I had ordered as a gift for my seventeen year old niece, who is crazy for it, which is great for Auntie because it's so cheap!

    BTW the Hadrien....oh no, this is not the Hadrien that I remember........

    Nope, it's actually Lei It's a warm, snuggly sweater of a fragrance -- a cocoa and vanilla centered gourmand with a soft patchouli. Per LuckyScent, notes are cocoa, labdanum, vanilla, patchouli, sandalwood, cedar. She's rather the polar opposite of Lui!

    Is cassis on the new regulatory chopping block?? If so, I need to do some squirreling of UFdC myself. What do you think of the Violette Fumee?

    Someone mentioned it may well be given a facelift - can't confirm it but I had been meaning to get a back-up and a friend had asked me to pick him one up so better sooner than later.

    I expect the other two in a few days from LS.

    But seriously, best of luck and I commend you if you can hold fast. I said that to myself in early October and yesterday while base notes was down I received:

    And a few backup bottles of one of my favorite frags of all time that has been (to my knowledge) discontinued: Guerlain Homme L'Eau
