    A 25 year old mini of Gloria Vanderbilt V

    actually a rather nice scent.

    I don't know why it took so long - I guess when one has a lot of options, it just takes longer to finish, plus I've gone years at a time where I was too ill to want to wear anything. Health providers around here forbid the wearing of fragrances in public spaces. I'm so glad I have the privacy again to practice my hobby.

    This evening l've finished a 30ml bottle of vintage Shalimar EDT that l got in a swap some years ago. No plans to replace it, as it's rather lacking in longevity, & l still have some vintage PDT & parfum left.

    Congrats teardrop Personally I prefer the more concentrated Shalimar, the drydown is a lot more enjoyable.

    Not really finished - but I gave away four of my mini bottles to local Caritas together with a bag of various hygiene stuff and cosmetics.
    Bye bye Salvador Dali Itislove, Boucheron Place Vendome, Boucheron Jaipur Bracelet and my second 10 ml mini of Agent Provocateur. I hope you'll find new owners who will love you and wear you.
    I don't really need a backup for AP as I'll be using it very sparingly anyway (the AP mini set I bought for testing purposes had two bottles of the original scent) and I really didn't like Itislove and Place Vendome. The one that I actually enjoyed was Jaipur Bracelet, but it was prone to give me headaches and sneezes when applied heavier - and was too fleeting to apply lightly.
    I got into a habit of buying cheap minis from discounters for testing purposes when a tester sample is unavailable and didn't know what to do when I didn't enjoy wearing the scent. Now I know, and it feels so much better not having the unneeded stuff around.

    I'm sure it will be to someone else's gain, ClockworkAlice. Those are good scents, if not for you, then for someone else.

    .....my 30 year old bottle of Chanel Coco.

    I liked the scent but it was not for every day or every season, which is why it took me so long to finish it off.

    And thank you, I really hope my minis get a loving home.

    Congrats, FiveOaksBouquet!

    Have you finished this 100 ml bottle just in under a month? Holy bottles, you're fast!

    Thank you, ClockworkAlice! Checked back and this one was purchased August 20th—about two months. I’ve been wearing it a lot. The recent purchase was the new bee bottle.

    Oh yes, then you're really fast, but not THAT fast! It's clearly your current favourite - and you were right to get a bigger bee bottle!
    And yes, I forgot to compliment you - the photo is fantastic.
