    Talking Today I Bought—April 2014

    Really? I'm starting this thread? Three days into the month? OK, then!

    More vintage Diorella for me! 2 oz EDT spray.

    I bought samples of Jalaine perfume oils - $18 for the set, which is a great deal I think! I told myself I was not going to make any new purchases for the next three months because I blew my annual budget on samples last month :-(

    But I have a problem. I can't help myself. I am also angling to buy a bottle of Cuir de Lancome from a fellow BN-er, a blind buy, which also violates my no blind buy rule. I am a right eejit, as we say in Ireland.

    Edited: Boo hoo, Jalaine cancelled my order because they don't deliver to my country. And another sale to me was cancelled - nobody's fault, just a customs issue with shipping perfume. Oh well, I take that as permission to spend that money on decants!

    Absolue Pour le Soir so far thus month.

    I might pick up a Dior from the private collection before the price increase. Tomorrow is last day to purchase at current pricing.

    ClaireV your not an eejit your sample budget just needs revising I love Jalaine's Patchouli and Cuir de Lancōme is lovely too.

    Genie Jeanie, I love Eau de Patou is such as good buy, I'm so tempted to start hoarding this one.

    The Diorella arrived, photos to be posted later. This is an atomizer that disperses subatomic particles! It is "cleaner" than the splash mini that that was my initial Diorella experience. Where the spray opens very lemony, the splash, which I believe is older,starts with a meaty floral vibe, possibly ylang-ylang. The spray was a little disappointing, until I pointed it at my bedding. Sprayed on bedding, it is utterly beguiling.

    ps—danieq, you had better smell and tell! From Shocking to Slumberhouse—that's quite a range.

    jujy, my vintage Diorella splash (a decant) is nice and lemony. That's very interesting. Then again I have never smelled it in spray.

    danieq, that teeny Hiris is *so* cute!!!

    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui, 100 ml, which, oddly, I've never owned.

    Please report once you've sampled the lavender one - I've heard it's fantastic.

    Wow, good enough to have a backup bottle of it, eh? I still haven't smelled this yet - I'm tempted to blind buy it.

    Kumquat, the vintage bottles are so effortlessly sexy. L'Origan is really gorgeous a must sniff for anyone who enjoys L'Heure Bleue. Also forgot to add Aqua Allegoria Flora Nyphmea.
