    This afternoon I was waking around Walmart where I discovered a 2.5 OZ bottle of Shalimar EDC in the clearance section. I immediately snatched it up but couldn't find a price anywhere. When I went to check out, the box would not scan correctly. The cashier asked me how much it cost, and I told her that it was the only bottle left and it was in the clearance section. I even voluntarily suggested that $40-45 would be a fair price (after doing a quick check on Fragrancenet). She called the manager for a price check, who said he had never seen that fragrance in the store before and said he would sell it to me for $9.99 just to get it out of there!

    The batch code on the box and bottle match, and the actual fragrance smells perfectly. According to Checkcosmetic.net (which I know can be sketchy at best), it's from April 2011. The box and bottle look legit, and for what it's worth, it says "Made in France" on the back next to some Arabic writing.

    Needless to say, I'm one happy camper!

    Went to L'Occitane to buy Vetiver but decided to buy Verveine instead. Verveine Very very strong smell of verbena that instantly boosted my mood. Looking forward to wearing it once the weather is warmer.

    I don't own it but it certainly gets my vote. Verveine seems to be the classic French scent for summer. Wonderful stuff.

    I finally pulled the trigger on YSL's Rive Gauche PH.

    It's my SOTD, and I pretty much finished the 1ml tube too. I figure, HEY! why do I not own a bottle of this yet?!
