Bought CDG Zagorsk on a whim after reading it was incensy/piney goodness. Had to pick up a bottle. I think this is the last one for a while with this, Burberry London and another bottle of DHI. Saving for my house now, until I sell more of my collection.
Blind buy of Thirty Three by Ex Idolo.

Today I have bought 3 samples of Pure Malt on eBay and it cost me less than £5. I have never been able to find this in the UK and seeing as how it has such rave reviews and is generally adored in the fragrance community, I decided to see what the fuss was all about and I am actually really excited to try it.
Transaction canceled by seller

I bought Guerlain L'Eau, Love and Luck, Pure Havane and YSL Elle (not for me!) this month. I will be getting a decant of Spiritueuse Double Vanille too.
On the subject of vanilla, are there any other fragrances that do a smokey vanilla? Besides SDV which I absolutely loved at first sniff and will be getting a small decant. It's just too expensive.

Picked up Guerlain Homme L'eau Boisee and Cartier Declaration d'un Soir in duty free
Absolutely loving the Guerlain
Interesting. We should swap
I bought L'eau instead of L'eau Boisee, but I'd like to try the latter at some point. I can't evaluate it yet but the blend is quality, the notes feel quality. I need more wears but so far I'm enjoying it. It's quite different to your typical fresh scents. I think this will do very well in Spring and maybe Summer too (it's the cold winter here in England right now and it performed okay).

Picked up a back up bottle of Burberry London...just in case the discontinuation/reformulation rumors are true...
I have Tom Ford Sahara Noir on the way from Nordstrom. I'm thinking about buying Tom Ford Plum Japonais before the end of the month.
Finally bought Aventus.

A backup bottle of Revlon Fire&Ice
Profumum Roma Olibanum
It's definitely an overlooked gem. And, no, it doesn't smell like cannabis
