    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).
    Good haul!

    This is the link for submitting products for inclusion in the Directory, although there may be a queue.

    Nice acquisitions, all, some bargains too boot. Danieq I must find that farmhouse and JamesBeach if I ever get to Jounieh.... Xscent I will definitely be spanking my wrists.

    Here's a pic of a motley crew. I took the plunge and almost bought out Demeter! if only in 0.5 oz sizes, here lined up in a phalanx of glass warriors. Barely visible in the back are my Slumberhouses in their sacks, including the new one, Ore. Gorilla's Lust and Tuca Tuca are there, but I plan to find them new owners. Not KM's beautiful Boise de Santal or Malle's breathtaking En Passant. They're home.

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Blasts from the past. I wore Fendi ten years ago. My mother wore the super-green Trigère in the 80s, and it brings back a lot of memories. Continuing on the green theme, the divine Coriandre, which I wore in high school (a little young for it!). I'm pretty sure this parfum is pre-reformulation (clear bottle versus frosty, and a wonderful scent--thoughts anyone?)

    I love Fendi ​now it is d/c and crazy expensive. Is that bottle almost empty :-( ? Coriander sounds divine but it is one I have never been able to find! :-(

    Oh good! You are lucky, then. I was concerned. I've noticed these are so pricy now. Thank goodness you didn't get one that was almost spent!

    Chicagoista, I've just found a vintage bottle of Coriandre perfume. A tiny one. I got it on Ebay. It was the only one that looked like vintage. Fingers crossed. You inspired me. (Around $30 with shipping)

    So sorry, that must have been auto-correct. I meant 'Famous'. I purchased at Vogue Perfumes and Beauty Corner on Harry Hines. I wish I'd had time and $$ to go further down the road, but I ran short of both so I'll have to hope for another trip down HH on another occasion.

    Ebay buy: Creed Fleurs de Bulgarie. 2.5 oz, they sent me the 1 oz. We're in dispute.

    January's purchases (I know there's still a couple of weeks left of the month, but there's always too much month left at the end of the money!):

    7.5ml of vintage Miss Dior Parfum (for £5.50!!)
    14ml of vintage Miss Balmain Parfum
    finally got a bottle of Timbuktu (yay!) and
    a blind buy of Aqaba, which is just heavenly.

    Thank-you, Hedonist. It smells good, too, after it dries down.

    Jon, Yummm! Chypre Palatin. ​I tried this out on my husband but it wasn't his thing. Too bad. You will love it, I'm sure!

    Yesterday I bought a 15ml of vintage Tuvara Tuvache on eBay. I loved it in the early '80s--spicy and rich-smelling. I hope it smells as good as I remember when it arrives.
