    How do you all get the full size photos to post in your message?
    Go to http://tinypic.com/ , it's free ,upload your photo , then click right on the photo and copy image location. After that go on the insert image box from BN ,click From URL paste your link with the photo and unmark the box Retrieve remote file...... and finally click OK. This is the way of inserting a picture which works very well for me. Hope this will help you.

    This just arrived. Got it for practically nothing. I've recently fallen in love with Bal à Versailles. Wondering if this version's any good.

    Beautiful purchases everyone.

    A mixed bag for me. I bought the Malle's Une Fleur de Cassie in November and received an adorable pair of vintage Chanel No.5 EdC and Parfum from my brother as an early Christmas present, he knows me well. Decided a pic was in order.



    Love that FATE bottle Hedonist, it's stunning and the view is not to shabby either!
    ScentFan I also love Bal à Versailles, hope this rendition is a good one.

    Tea Rose Amber for 5 dollars. It's more on the masculine side. Not sure if I like it but it was 5 bucks

    ^^ Oh kalli, I love Eau de Charlotte! It's one of my very favorite fruity-florals ...very youthful and flirty and girlie, but there's something quite voluptuous about it, too. I hope you enjoy it!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Diptyque's Philosykos, for Mrs.StPaul for Christmas. (She asked for it. Who am I to second-guess? )

    I did it through Luckyscent, and they've got a free "Diptyque Deluxe Sampler" offer -- so we have 8 spray samples and 2 "body products" coming as well. Exciting!

    What was the price behind Peety? I found it here in the U.A.E. But was double the price of that on the website.

    Thanks, cello. I fell in love with the little sample another perfumista sent me a while back and I could tell that I'd be really happy owning a FB. I am inordinately proud when I look at the bottle.

    No particular reason. I guess I find it a bit gimmicky.

    Finally got around to trying it today. To me it is caramel popcorn. There's also a nuttiness to it (I'm attributing that to the sesame). It was sweet but light.

    Hi, all. So looking forward to really investigating Dior, Annick Goutal, O'Driu, Profumum, Roja Dove. Lovely vintages, Xscent!

    Well, here are my latest acquisitions, most surprise gifts from "once and future" after learning I loved a perfume. Is it part of why I'm remarrying him? Heck, maybe! Here's the story. By now it's clear the divorce didn't and won't take. We're just as close as ever. On the day he drove away three years ago next month, I -- previously stoic and determined -- stood in the garage and started to cry. He told me to buck up. We'd made this decision. Let's go through with it. Logical (among other things, we're both engineers), so I stopped crying. He phoned periodically as he drove halfway across the country to his new home. Was I fine? I was. Was he? Yep. Good. He arrived at his new place, with a long to-do list. Three days later it was done. He of few words and zero tears called to say, "I burst out crying in the grocery store." I told him to buck up. He did. The universe, sick of us, intervened. I received a notice. Did I know the Russian version of a book I have personal interest in was housed in only one USA library? -- in the city where my guy lived? The next door neighbors came to ask if I'd watch the house, they're going out of town. Where to? The city where my guy lived. I received an email from a very nice woman I'd met at a spa and hadn't heard from in ages. Would I come visit? Where did she reside? (No kidding!) In the city where my guy lived. Giving in, I went, not seeing him until the end. We had dinner and have talked, emailed, texted and skyped almost daily since. Now and then we did try zero contact, but something would happen. Example. Thinking I was having a heart attack, medics took me to a hospital. My guy (aka emergency contact) hopped a plane. Turned out it was only vertigo. He got sick. I hopped a plane. A bad hurricane headed toward me. He hopped a plane. Etcetera. Thankfully, he's now moved closer. Before the universe kills us both off so it can bury us in the same grave, we thought we'd best get back together. We took out a marriage license and will almost 100% surely use it before its January 26 expiration. Besides, okay, we love each other! Looking skyward. Satisfied?
