    I received the order from Twisted Lily - Rouge Bunny Rouge.
    Only 4 days. Pretty good shipping! This one smells like EL- Pleasures, only rounder.

    Here's something for Easter.

    I've been obsessed with Sous le Vent but kept hesitating because of the price. Then found out it was being discontinued and immediately went out and bought 2 bottles!

    Very clever. I love this one. You can always sell it.

    Vintage 15ml bottle of Shalimar extrait. It's sealed in the zig zag box.

    I don't why I didn't think of this until now, but I just realized I could call the Guerlain Vegas boutique to request samples, so I did.

    Vega, Sous Le Vent, Spiriteusse Double Vanille are coming my way! Yay! Very helpful staff there!

    I also purchased a Caron Tabac Blond Pure Parfum in the 1.7 oz size. I was skeptical of this,but after communicating with Caron, I learned it is the same as the Extrait. Can't wait for that! Oh, and I picked up Mimosa Pour Moi with my Amazon points! Good perfume day! Must never buy anything else again EVER!
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    That is the truth Kumquat. Will be interesting to compare the one from Paris with the one I'm getting. The SA at Caron assured me that the alcohol content is exactly the same as what is in Paris. A comparison should make it clear. She did admit that some 'nameless' companies do that dastardly deed and that you can tell the difference, but assured me that is never the practice of Caron. I'll let you know my findings.

    Congrats LPP! I need to sample that again. I have yet to give it a proper wear. You are quite the SH girl aren't you! Enjoy!

    Congrats, lpp! I still have some of my sample of that one, and do not find it quite as difficult as some people. Not love, but certainly like! Enjoy your bottle!

    Thanks, cello - it's the right sort of weather here for wearing it at the moment!

    Congrats lpp - glad it arrived!

    I find Mare is quite a shapeshifter, and generous as Josh's samples are, I still hadn't quite decided whether I liked it by the time I drained mine, so just went ahead with the plunge - and am I glad I did!

    Thanks, rowan - it's definitely better spaying from the bottle....so happy to finally have this one, plus there's a Baque sample.
