    In Paris presently, and just upgraded my ancient decant to a full jar of Iris Silver Mist.
    Had intended to replace my bottle of MKK too, but as I feared, it's just not the same anymore. Tant pis ...

    Bought at the end of May but didn't arrive until this morning, I just got 15ml of vintage Miss Dior parfum for £18 including postage, and it would just be rude not to, at that price

    So now I have a back up for the back up of my back up bottle.

    Congrats, Xscent! Mito was a jaw-dropper for me from the very first sniff. It's an absolutely gorgeous scent & easily at the top of my favorites. Enjoy!!

    My latest purchase of En Passant arrived today. (Happy dance) When I first sampled this over a year ago & I was a bit meh about it, but a recent retest won me over. It totally captures the scent of the lilacs my Dad planted below my bedroom window many years ago. A fond memory & a gorgeous scent.

    Last nights mail contained decants of Une Fleur de Cassie, Iris Nazrena and Ombré Indigo!

    Today's mail included a 4ml vintage Ysatis Parfum.

    Danieq it makes me very happy to know you have UFdC. Ombré Indigo sounds interesting to, I’m tempted by colour alone.

    Thanks Genie Jeanie how wonderful that En Passant brings about such a scent association for you. Have you tried Guerlinade? Another wonderful lilac, just like burying your nose in a cloud of purple lilacs. Mito haunted me, coupled with no self control a purchase was inevitable.

    sfmedusa agreed, it would've been very rude. I'm glad your exemplary manners has forced your hand in such matter. Oh and I see we have the same back up strategy for ensuring continuing supplies of our favourites.

    Nooooooooo! Tell me it isn’t so, how disappointing.

    Also here to report I also bought Bel Ami today.

    I have to say that I had a sample pre-reformulation which is what I made my buying decision based on. The fragrance is not the same sadly. There is a very strong dirt note in the new form.

    However, I've found that Amouage Opus III has a very similar vibe to the pre-reformulation version. I shall have to find a way to love the scent of dirt to enjoy my new decant I guess.

    The Ombre Indigo is very interesting leather.

    danieq, I will be interested to hear your thoughts on Iris Nazarena.

    Yesterday I ordered some Jicky EDP, new. I'm stalking ebay for some vintage edt, but not willing, at the moment, to pay $200 for it. We'll see how the modern EDP goes for me.

    Genie, congrats! I didn't know you liked lilacs, aren't those a bit green?. That's a scent I really should try.

    Just got Queen Latifah gift set (body butter and 3.4 oz bottle) at TJMaxx for $12 ,they had another style set for the same that had a mini and lotion instead of the butter. I like QL it is a sweet amber patchouli incense blend similar to Boyfriend,Nirvana Black, Prada Amber,Costume National Scent,Fancy Nights, Ambre Narguile ,and A*men Havane. Hope that helps if anyone else is interested too!

    I have blown my budget big time already. I bought:

    A gently used bathtub sized bottle of Chanel Cuir de Russie EDT on eBay for 170 euros (the most I have ever spent on a perfume, and I am still shaking)
    A 75ml bottle of Bois des Iles, also on eBay, for a little less than 120 euros.
    A 7ml bottle of vintage Chanel No. 22 (for $41!)
    A 30ml bottle of vintage Shalimar EDT for $17 plus shipping

    And then, the splits I was in for 5mls each of Bois des Iles and Vol de Nuit extraits just closed so I had to pay those as well........my credit card is crying! No more for me for a while, I think.

    Ipp and ClaireV, thanks! it's a very lush rose with green notes, very sweet, then dries down to soft woods. it's possibly my favourite guerlain along with l'heure bleue!

    Congratulations on Nahema, it is one of MY Guerlains, although I am not on easy terms with L'Heure Bleue. I think it is a reference rose scent -- featuring rose de mai not a deeper darker variety -- with sweet and slightly heady fruit and mellow woods and musks at the base.

    Oh, Nahema! Happy day!

    Clairev, that is a lovely collection of goodies you've found, enjoy!

    Erink, I found Vintage Jicky on perfume row in Ft worth a while back, if you have access to any of those huge perfume store, you might try there. I got a great price. It is wonderful stuff! But the Extrait!!! Love!

    Pops head up... did someone say Jicky? Keep looking on eBay I recently got a great deal for a very very old bottle of vintage Jicky extrait for $66.

    Congrats on your purchase and hopefully it is to your liking.

    Vintage Caron Belladogia, 2 fl oz EdT. $8. Can't tell how full this is as I can't get the top off, but it is heavy and smells absolutely amazing.

    Vintage Boucheron edp 2.5 oz (this is gorgeous orange blossom on my skin.)

    L'Air du Temps EdT (gift for a friend who loves it)

    Vintage Shalimar bath oil mini (this smells amazing!)

    Pave lol, I'm having the same dilemma with my Caron Belladogia. Yours could be a refillable case, which mine is. If so, the collar should come off and you should be able to pull out the refill. In my case, the collar seems to be stuck fast and I can't get it off. Need to see if my hubby can give it a go. Sometimes there is a screw head on the bottom that must be turned to release a lock.

    Thanks for your reply! I searched on the internet and it seems that the silver edition is a refillable case, not the gold one. Too bad I have the gold one There are already some marks near the sprayer, perhaps somebody already tried to get the bottle out of the case.
