    Default July Purchases

    Kicked off with another two EdP's from Roullier's sale - Florascent Kyoto Tachibana & Kyoto Midori, both blind buys as sampling doesn't seem to be an option over here & the Jinko is nice.
    It will be fun exploring them when they arrive

    I'm in on a split of it, so I shall see in the next couple of weeks when it arrives if it really is an Inferno.

    If the instructions say not to use the sprayer, from past experience, it's probably good advice

    We shall find out shortly!

    Hubby bought "us" Jo Malone Black Cedarwood and Juniper from the London Rain collection.

    i purchased from a Bloomingdales store in my local mall a refillable gold bottle of Vol de Nuit. It had never been opened and has the gold and black box from the eighties. The juice was good. It must have been in the back of a drawer. The sales associate for the Guerlain counter has been on sick leave for a year. The shelves were almost empty. When I commented this was an older bottle they asked if they could get me a newer one. The answer was "No thank you this one will be fine." I feel so lucky to have this pre-reformulation bottle.

    From Enzed I so agree. Being a perfume hobbyist in the Antipodes is a limited affair compared to all these acquisitions. Boohoo, sobs

    My Mitsouko edt older version is now down to the dregs!!!!! I do own the parfum but it was a panic mode for me not having just spray and go version. Ended up finding best price on ebay for 75mls edp new sealed in box. Lost out on a auction yesterday so same seller had one at BIN or Make An Offer, one offer had been rejected from someone else. My rule is usually take the shipping cost off and make that offer, it was accepted.
