    It's a thing of beauty! Congratulations ScentFan. Love vintage Mitsouko, she's a lady that's hard to forget I've been hooked for almost 20 years now

    Gifted these today from my dear mama. I love diving into the depths of my mother's fragrance wardrobe

    I picked up a bottle of Penhaligon's Amaranthine on Ebay for a pretty nice price. I can't figure out how to add a photo, or I'd do it, cause the bottle is lovely.

    I got these three on a buy two get one free deal:

    L'artisan Parfumeur Dzing!
    L'artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu
    L'artisan Parfumeur Dzongkha







    Just received them this morning!

    I am wearing Dzing! today and I can't but help think of Bvlgari Black. I think the two are very similar, similar enough that owning both may just be a bit redundant. Does anyone else find these two to be siblings? Dzing! is just missing the plasticky smell of Bvlgari Black.
    Looking for THE femme fatale scent. If you think there is something I should smell please PM me!

    Nice acquisitions, VintagePoison! I wouldn't mind a bottle of Dzing myself but I've never been able to find it sold at a discounted price. I have never noticed a similarity to Bvlgari Black, but I smelled Black a long time ago and only briefly, at a Sephora.

    Donna Karan Essence Jasmine. Thanks to the lovely BNer, who introduced me to that one.

    I think I am good on jasmine for a while!

    Hi gang -

    After discovering during the Chicago meet-up that Penhaligon's Lily & Spice was *nowhere* to be found, I went hunting and found a solid perfume compact of this lovely fragrance on Beauty Encounter. Bit the bullet (with a discount code) and aside from worrying that the stuff is going to melt all over the mirror, I'm delighted with the acquisition! It smells divine.

    The pic completely obscures the pretty scroll work on the compact - Hmph!

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...

    @lpp. Good job on the perfume. I don't know O'Driu, but winning a giveaway is always nice. I do want to compliment you on the inclusion of the comic book panel. Which comic series is it from? Is the perfume based on the comic book character?

    Hi Curly & rowan - thank you, it was a very nice surprise!
    The pic is of the character - sorry, no idea which series.
    The scent was created for the character - see
    http://www.odriu.eu/store/products/2-eva-kant.html#
    and
    http://sbamcomics.it/blog/tag/%E2%80...nale%E2%80%8B/

    I've only been wearing it for a couple of hours but initially it made me feel a bit like arriving at a London rail terminus on the way to an evening out & passing those massive fruit/flower stalls with the juicy, fresh citrus displays - grapefruit & a bit of lavender -- not that it's in any way sickly fruity at all, sort of rather urban, stylish & sharp to start, mellowing down now with a bit of ylang/vanilla coming in..benzoin... spicy things going on too.

    Impressed with the quality, unusual - it will be worn

    Well, high quality and impressive scent is an absolute bonus when winning a giveaway. Sometimes it's difficult to discern exactly how a perfume will smell if all you have is a list of notes.

    Agree, Curly11 - my feeling is that it definitely suits the character!
    Perhaps not totally earth-shattering to someone of my advanced years & peculiar tastes, but very interesting, non-generic & wearable.

    though, it's just a rumor now or? Nothing has been confirmed, right? I've been wanting it for a long time anyway.

    Xscent, congrats!. I think I did like the Rue Cambon, wouldn't mind a split of that one..but Beige, that darned Beige..is way higher on the list. I say that darned Beige cause I don't have it yet. lol. Those exclusifs are sooo expensive though.
