    Default Today's Purchases -- February 2014

    Anyone been shopping?

    I finally picked up Jeux de Peau for a great deal on thedecantshop.com

    And I got my hands on some Weil Antilope Parfum, hopefully it still has all it's wonderful character. It's the vintage stuff.

    So weird, I was sure I started a thread like this earlier today, but now I can't find it anywhere.

    I picked up Jeux de Peau for a song over at thedecantshop.com as well as a vintage bottle of Antilope parfum on ebay. Hoping it has it's notes intact.

    I received Sugi today, and a nice-sized decant of Caron Parfum Sacre extrait from a split.

    Picked up the gift set of Le Cherche Midi for $55 + shipping! No 01, 17, and 30, with 17 being my absolute favorite of the three!

    Although not the most authentic magnolia perfumes I've come across, these two beauties are my lovely little souvenirs from our recent Australian holiday.

    Those look nice, E! I haven't sniffed too many magnolia scents but you did recommend that Acqua Di Parma one, I think? I notice some mag scents I've tried have a bit of a mint note to them..wonder why that is.

    Acqua di Parma's Magnolia Nobile is the *best*, kalli - it really does replicate the smell of those big ol' southern magnolias better than any other perfume I've come across. But these two are wonderful, but like I said, not so magnolia-y. Sandrine reminds me of what I get from wearing Cristalle Eau Verte together with a bit of Magnolia Nobile, actually, and Michele reminds me a bit of Diorissimo of all things - I get more lily-of-the-valley, or maybe lilac or honeysuckle from it than magnolia, but it's certainly a very pretty, winsome and breezy floral. I should get lots of use out of them in summer, especially Sandrine, which I've already slotted for tennis.

    Oh, I don't know about the mint you get ...I'll have to resniff with it in mind, but I think that must be a personal perception thing.

    No worries LPP, I just got all kinds of confused when I saw yours, and then I couldn't see mine because I was blind and ?????

    Waiting for bottles of vintage Muguet des Bois and Emeraude. Both ebay purchases. Not long ago, I acquired some vintage Shalimar, also an ebay purchase. This is my first bottle of Shalimar and I now understand why the devotees are so devoted. It is very addictive. Oh yes, I also bought some Shalimar hair gel off Amazon. It works nicely for smoothing wispy gray hairs and it smells wonderful, of course.

    A half-ounce (about 2/3 full) of vintage Cartier Panthere. I ordered a mini a while ago and fell head over heels for the civet in it, so had to get more.

    This isn't a buy but a gift offered by hednic in our "free to a good home" thread. Hard to think of greater joys -- married one day and receiving this untouched utter beauty of a perfume the next. Thanks again, hednic. I'm following your lead today on the men's thread.

    Wow, three fragrances bought that I've never even heard of: Jeux de Peau, L'OmBre Fauve, and Le Cherche Midi. Must speed up my education! I'm waiting for vintage Cartier Panthere, too, foxbins. So excited!

    I just received a few samples, including Mouchoir de Monsieur, LIDGE, Bois D'Argent, Tuscan Leather, Musc Kublai Khan, Five O'Clock Au Gingimbre, and Feminite du Bois. In fact, all of the smells arrived in my box at the same time so Jeux de Peau, Antilope Vintage Parfum, Cuir de Russie and Vintage Caron Belladoggia. Quite a day!

    I brought ''Knowing'' by Estee Lauder
    www.aafke-art.com

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. 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.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower
