    Kicking off the month with a bottle of Hanae Mori HiM EDP. Hoping this one will work well for university this autumn.

    On my way to work today I drove by a little perfume shop, that I've never noticed before. On a hunch, I parked the car and went in. Sure enough, I scored 2 large cans of vintage Rive Gauche Pour Homme (@ 40 EUR each) and a bottle of Cacharel Nemo. Happy days :-)

    Another bottle of Balafre! I'm going through mine kinda quickly. I just love this stuff and wished I could get it in a more concentrated strength. Perhaps if we all write to Lancome, which I just did!
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Bought it online from Le Labo and got it shipped from the UK by road, in an extra-sealed package with its new accompanying "dangerous goods declaration" on the basis of the "environmentally hazardous substance" contained.
    The doorman who received the delivery was actually pretty scared when the thing got here

    Thanks. I'm particularly enjoying the Encens Satin. I was lucky to get the Ombre & Lumiere in Sydney Australia as apparently the whole city only got 3 bottles and the whole country only got 15 bottles!

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    Maroussia. I had tried it last week as it was discounted and it is now the most animalic scent I own.

    Haven't opened the cellophane yet as I am using it as a prize to do something that I really need to do (start going to some social activities where I know nobody). Hopefully next week! Then I'll get to open it
