    Today I finished my 10 ml travel bottle of Rabarbaro by L'Erbolario. I bought it for summer and travels, but it lasted me for the whole six months. Now I know it takes me around 34 wears and half a year to finish 10 ml of a light fragrance if I wear it several times per month/at least once a week. Maybe more, because I shared it with my mom during our summer trip, too. Of course, it should take more wears to finish something heavy, as I would naturally do less sprays per wear.
    It was a great fragrance for daytime, work and travels - an easy wear. I enjoyed it, but no plans to repurchase - I'm happy to move on.

    Thunked the decant of Cuir Pleine Fleur. Such a nice everyday leather, if I didn't already have so much perfume I'd buy a bottle.

    Just drained the last drops of my decant of Champagne de Bois by Sonoma Scent Studio. There's little chance of ever replacing it unless STC start stocking these again, but l've loved wearing it & when it's gone, it's gone.

    Mugler Cuir Impertinent finished and I am still wearing it. But not to worry: there is a handy little 8ml purse size to tide me over until Thursday when the bottle is to be refilled.

    Wow, you’re using up that perfume, Madame! Mugler Cuir Impertinent is currently my favorite leather. I got my bottle last May at the Chicago meetup and have worn it frequently; I’m wearing it right now. I hope to need a refill by its anniversary!

    Thank you, caz! I’m looking forward to it. There are apparently also some mysterious GWP goodies involved in the event.

    Scent twins! It is a beautiful leather. Where will you get it refilled? Montréal has a good Mugler counter...

    The idea of refilling my Cuir Impertinent in Montréal is tremendously appealing!

    Today I finished my old Puma Woman bottle - I had it for maybe 17 years or more. It was my first perfume ever.
    I also binned two other my ancient bottles that I still kept at my parents - Wild Wind by Gabriela Sabatini that I always disliked but now I thought it must also have turned, and Dream by C-Thru - there was a third left, but the sprayer got stuck. Since I never liked it either, I didn't think much about how to reach the juice and just threw it out. Feels good.

    Wow! Three at once—good job!

    Thanks! I was slowly working on my old Puma for the past six months or so since I found it stashed at my parents'. And when I finished that, I thought I should get rid of the other two as well.

    Obviously I don't wear my masculines very often. I still have a companion mini of Navigateur and I like that one more.

    Is there such a thing as an Interim Report? If so, today I was shocked to note that the Cuir Impertinent purchased 3-1/2 weeks ago is half finished! I believe it's 80ml. At that rate if I want to wear it through the Holidays, it will need to get refilled before Christmas.

    Shocking, simply shocking! I almost feel like grabbing a bottle and just wearing it to death like I did in my pre-Basenotes days. You know, just to see if I can. Hmm...

    Whoa, FiveOaksBouquet!
    I didn't think it was even possible to go through half a bottle so quickly!
    I think you definitely need a replacement for Christmas. Or better - two!
