    Not today...but yesterday I picked up LM Perfumes Black Oud, Ambre Muscadin and Hard Leather samples from Osswald Parfumeries in NY. The people at Osswald are very helpful and friendly and I would highly recommend purchasing from them.

    Bought the last days of April but arrived today, Amouage Homage Attar, 12 ml, so May's perfume budget is still intact!

    Well, I have to report my sad news. I purchased a bottle of Guerlain Vega, NIB on EBAY and got scammed. An empty bottle arrived in a previously opened box with a broken seal on the box and the bottles. It's pretty clear that the seller is trying to pull something, she put insurance on it and everything. I am glad EBAY protects buyers, but I have no idea how long it takes to get one's $$ back. I think I'll try the boutique instead.

    Oh so sorry, Dani - was it very different from the pics?
    At least you should be refunded in the end.

    Yes, it was completely empty! It was advertised as brand new in unopened box. My bad though, as it wasn't a picture of the actual item, but an advertising picture, which I've read you should never purchase from. I sure hope I'll get refunded. As I've started going through the process, they are saying that because of the way I paid, I can't use the Ebay buyer protection program which is hugely annoying. Ugggg! I guess I needed a lesson. I sure am getting one.

    Yikes, Danielle, I am so sorry. I hope you didn't shell out an enormous amount.

    I ordered Chanel Allure Homme Sport, because I've smelled it on some guy in a bus (I told him I liked it and asked him what it was) and I absolutely loved it. Also I bought Grey Vetiver last month, based on recommendations of fellow basenoters and I like it a lot. Very fresh and crispy, I'm saving it for the hottest days of the upcoming summer


    edit: sorry ladies, I posted this in the wrong board lol

    How did you pay? Not with PayPal? Your credit card co. Should protect you.

    I saw that Nieman Marcus has Vega for sale.

    I always get my Guerlain fragrances by calling Johnathan at the Guerlain boutique in the Bellagio in Vegas. He was a great host when the Basenotes meetup folks visited a couple of years back.

    This month I purchased a 50ml bottle of Ligea La Sirena by Carthusia at a local independent perfume shop, and also ordered some Carthusia 5ml decants from Surrender To Chance since they had them on sale.

    In May I bought Keiko Mecheri Isles Lointaines and Lostmarc'h Aod, and I swore that I wasn't going to buy anything else. But then today I decided that I couldn't wait to smell Blackbird so I went to the House of Matriarch website and got the 3.3 mL mini, and while I was there I decided to also try Woo, and Forbidden.... Going to have to work on self-restraint.

    Omgosh Danieq, that stinks. If you used Paypal or Ebay, you should get your money back. It depends, it could take up to thirty days I think, depending on the case and response, or lack thereof, from the seller.

    I love minis. These from the Miniature Perfume Shoppe:
    Ysatis, Silences, the esteemed Cabochard, and her less-esteemed sister (it seems) Cabotine.

    Puma those bottles look beautiful. Jujy I never tire of seeing the Beast! ClaireV hubby would want you to be happy and really he benefiting from having such lovely fragrance surround him. Danieq well done on securing Vega before it’s all but a discontinued memory.

    Back in the perfume confessional. So far in may May and I have bought L'Heure Fougueuse, La Treizième Heureand another is on it's way but until it's in my hands it doesn't count right?

    Also a big bottle of Rose 31.

    Hoping a spritz of each and a reading of The Guide should absolve me.
