    Today the Postman arrived with the following:

    Dark Aoud
    Aoud Lime
    Soleil De Capri
    Intense Café
    Fahrenheit 32

    and the biggest bottle of Vettiveru that you can get - will take me around 14 years to get through it

    Were you able to grab this for the great price of $45 on Fragrancenet? How are you liking this compared to your other versions you have tried?

    I did - thanks to your tip.

    I only smelled it once before I boxed it back up & put it in storage (I still have a bottle of the original Ode de la Vanille that I'm not finished with). I liked what I smelled. Not as 'citric' as the original in the top notes. And of course it's more gourmand/chocolate-y which I love. I think I'm going to really enjoy it in Fall/Winter.

    How incredibly disappointing, I've been waiting on buying a bottle for a while. Better keep using my 10ml decant sparingly.

    CDG Red Sequoia has been "temporarily discontinued" - it shows up as "not available until 2015" on many sites. Which was a reason for me to pull the trigger when I saw one available in stock.

    A local boutique is having a going-out-of-business sale; I couldn't resist:

    Santa Maria Novella Peau d'Espagne - unopened, 75% off. First timeI've ever bought a backup bottle of anything.
    Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba - almost full tester, 80% off.

    Chuffed.

    In the last month i bought 2 scents by BVLGARI; AQVA and Pour Homme Extreme.

    In march i traded a bottle of lancome hypnose i hated that my old roomate gave me for a bottle of Cartier Declaration D'un Soir.

    The 2 Bvlgari fragrances are really good, the Cartier is something that i can respect, but isnt for me.
