    Default Today's Purchases - January, 2014.

    Actually arrived yesterday - it's a Public Holiday today in the U.K.

    LM Parfums samples (one unfortunately 'borrowed' by youngest dog...).

    That looks like a nice collection. What was the dog's reaction, if any?

    Purchased to day on ebay: vintage Diorella EdT mini. I had to after reading about it re: the perfume/garbage connection in American Hustle.

    Thanks, Curly11 - she dropped it more quickly than a recent squirrel when requested!

    Well done, jujy54!

    Perfumes from Lebanon (3 of 1).jpg
    Technically purchased late December while I was in Lebanon. Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca 4.2oz in the original box and 1 oz Le Feu d'Issey Light for $50 and $40 respectively hidden in the shelves of a small perfume shop in Jounieh. Also, Serge Lutens A La Nuit purchased kind of impulsively for MSRP--I was aware I could have gotten it much cheaper if I had waited but I don't always want to be sensible.

    In the mail is Hermés Un Jardin sur le Toit. Reviews peg this one as an herbal grassy fragrance but when I tested it on myself, what I got was the most delectable cucumber which I haven't seen mentioned in any of the reviews so perhaps I imagined it. Looking forward nonetheless.

    Micallef's bespoke for Parfumerie Nasreen, called Nasreen. It is a rose, saffron, honey and oud scent. Won't get it for another 2 months (it was on pre-order) but looking forward to it.

    Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie but I have to say I'm disappointed. The jus is crystal clear & that is definitely NOT what I've seen of this fragrance in the past.. Even the tester on the counter contained amber colored jus.

    A Lab on Fire What We do in Paris is Secret. Very excited to get this one.

    Carthusia GELSOMINI DI CAPRI edp & VIA CAMERELLE edp. (Purchased in Dec 2013 but haven't gotten them yet.)

    Some vintage
    Caron- Narcisse Noir, EDT.
    ​It smells delightfully fresh, too! And nice and strong.

    Ordered a Slumberhouse sampler set after reading the Slumberhouse discussion thread. Can't wait to test them out when they arrive.

    15 lovely ml of vintage Bal à Versailles parfum arrived today. Intoxicating! I already have a bottle of the vintage EdC. Now if I can find the vintage EdT, I can wear BaV like Jean Desprez originally intended -- absolutely reeking!

    Congratulations! It will be a glorious reek. My Aunt use to tell me to give the parfum 'a hearty spanking' into the pulse points before applying the EdT. Love that woman and I've been spanking my parfums ever since.

    Drove through Dallas yesterday and stopped at the famous Harry Hines Blvd where I picked up the following. The prices are pretty awesome.

    93ml Mitsouko
    50ml Jicky
    50 ml Swiss Arabian Mahbobty
    50 ml Swiss Arabian Zahra
    100 ml Dzing

    Alll for under $200

    Also paid normal for 50ml of Chamre Noir and acquired a load of great samples from Frederic Malle, Arquiste, Nasamotto and Olfactive Studio while at Forty Five Ten being helped by the amazingly knowledgeable and friendly Dylan. Great day for perfume.

    I had been waiting for a good deal on Burberry London for a while, but finally decided to pull the trigger... Before they discontinue... Before they decide to reformulate...
    Now I need to hunt a bottle of Antidote for myself...

    Creed Royal Water from base noter. So beautiful & rather under appreciated I think.

    Marni is a new love of mine, a beautiful addition to the incense rose family. A shame it hasn't been added to the Basenotes directory yet (as of my last check).
