    Ipp, congrats my sister just bought this one and I think it's lovely, much more my style than Gin Fizz.

    Thanks, Xscent - it will be interesting comparing it to the sample of the new version - which was the main reason for buying it.
    Gin Fizz is a little too vague for me as well!

    Xscent, you certainly need to try Onda. It's quite something. I haven't decided for myself if I could wear it but I do like it. I'd say it's very indolic and that's where the skank comes from. Well, if I'm remembering the right scent that is.

    Danie and ErinK I will get it on it, lets see how it works on my skank taming skin. I might just order the whole line to sample.

    Congrats lpp! Linfedele Haiku is one of my favourites (and also among most attainable) of the classic O'driùs.
    Would be interesting to hear what you think of the SSS samples - Winter Woods in particular is a rather nice warm amber.

    And I can only encourage anyone who's interested in exploring Vero Profumo - they are all very imaginatively and tightly composed. I've had my samples for just a few days, and Kiki and Onda are already firm favourites. There is space on my shelf for Mito as well.

    Thanks, rowan - it's good to finally have this one and the presentation is excellent quality
    Packing out the bottles with a little sacking bag is a very smart option too.

    Incense Pure is the first sample on out of that batch, but since I already have Sahara Noir (admittedly less complex), it may not be an imminent purchase but time will tell - it's certainly beautifully done!

    The Vero Profumo ones sound great too - looks like this is going to be an expensive time....

    Just received my Majora EDP. It does not disappointment. It's got that earthiness I love. The tops are my favorites tuberose and jasmine along with the sandlewood and vanilla dry down.

    Since it's discontinued I must go order more at once. Just don't understand why this did not sell.

    Mayotte is suppose to be the same but it is much more expensive and there have been some substitutions in the ingredients.

    Just love these earthy deep perfumes.

    Thanks to Evangeline, I was reminded I have never smelled Iris Ganache. I know this is one I will never own in FB, so let's just get that out of the way. They can be found on ebay for a bit less than $400 and The Perfumed Court is attempting to sell 75 ml in box for - wait for it - $899.25. As if eight hundred ninety-nine dollars just wasn't *quite* enough.

    So I settled on a couple 4 ml "manufacturer mini tube," whatever that is, in my most expensive per-ml perfume purchase to date. At the time I ordered them they said they had 10 left. Naturally, I am half expecting them to email me back and say they are out of stock.

    Okay --Update time .
    The Moschino Couture arrived safely . I like the scent -on me- it smells sort of cardemom/floral tea-ish .Quite pleasant .(ErinK we may need to talk swap if you still don't want yours.) Since my bottle is only half full I figure that the topnotes may have shifted a tad but I like it .

    Bought a bottle of Strenesse by Gabriele Strele Nose is Maurice Roucel . I seem to get a sweet almond /heliotrope and other florals and vanilla. This seems a good bit lighter than Hypnotic Poison which I see it compared to . Personally I see it as closer to Silk Way or Barbara Bui minus the insence.

    Went out discounter/thrifting yesterday and again a bit today and got a bit of a haul to report.
    At Ross I got a Burberry Brit edt rollerball for $7.
    At a thrift store 4 vintage Avons : Somewhere (in a bottle shaped like a butter churn) and Trailing Arbetus (the re-issue ----which was in 1978 for a 1919? scent ! So this bottle is about a year older than I am! Smells related to Chanel#5) Also bought 2 Avon milk glass small unlabeled perfumes just because they smell good . Someone was going to bring more in today so I'll probably go check back tomorrow as I said I would.

    At Tj Maxx I got a Shower gel for Les Notes de Lanvin Vetiver Blanche.$2
    Today at Marshalls!!!!!! : Les Notes de Lanvin Oud &Rose 1.7 oz edt and 1 each of shampoo,conditioner and shower gel( 3.4 oz )for $2 each .
    also got the Orange Ambre edt (the edt were $13 each) .This was a lemming as some people on the MUA board were talking about it .

    Arquiste Aleksandr and Cira Trudon Ernesto which is actually a room spray but a stunning chypre and about the strength of an EdT.

    Today I bought my mom a vintage bottle of Christalle by Chanel. Not sure when it is from (hopefully it is legit), but it is her favorite fragrance.

    It's actually just 60ml, but the bottle is large, not sure why.

    What great finds, danieq! You're pulling at my heartstrings with these. Panthere EDT was one of my first "real" perfumes. My bottle had sleek black panthers crawling up the sides & the scent was quite intoxicating. Joy was my Mom's signature scent & will always bring back my dearest scent memories. Happy spritzing. You smell fabulous!!
