*waits for Desist-ember*
I enjoyed the Stobtober-thread and as we all (from time to time) need some help from others to stop buying... well, this is the NO!-VEMBER-thread. I guess we don't always succeed in our promises not to buy but, let's share our experiences.
I survived Stobtober... will I survive NO!-VEMBER? I'm planning not to buy anymore till 2015.
Wish me luck!
*waits for Desist-ember*
I only got pure malt in October, I don't have any plans on getting anything else till I'm done college now.
For me, the outlook for November will be like October - normal purchasing.

Stoptober was a disaster
I am in for No-vember but only until 27th as I am going on holiday and plan to buy everything I see but until then, I am in
More like sellvember for me.
I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.
If you need to contact me, please use alternate forms of communication.
I told myself I was going to stop this month but I bought 7 bottles this month, BUUUT I got rid of some stuff to so its okay, lol! I am really not going to purchase anything in November though!!!!
Favorites at the moment:
Creed Virgin Island Water
AdP Colonia Leather
Dior Homme cologne 2013
I'd never survive, I'm already screwed,
But good luck OP
I failed horribly for Stopober. I don't stand a chance for November.
Sign me up.
I predict that Cyber Thursday will be the downfall of many us.
I wasn't taking part in stoptober but I bought more than I have in a long time so it is definitely No-vember and Desistember for me.
This last month I have spent less on fragrance than in any month since getting into this hobby - by far. Not sure what November holds, but there are quite a few things I have my eye on, so I am not counting on another low month.
Current Summer Favorites:
1. Creed - Original Cologne
2. Xerjoff - Nio
3. Creed - Aventus
4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
9. Creed - Virgin Island Water
10. Kenneth Cole - Black
I think I should join your in No----vember! I also anticipate DECIDEagainstember! I did pretty badly in Stoptober! But, I did sell lots of stuff, so that is something.
I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
My Sales Thread - A Collection Purge
I reckon on doing well this month, but the arrival of overstock at discounters in time for the holidays may do me in.
Good luck. Trying to hold out until December.
None so far during October. With over 300 bottles it isn't a matter of will, rather of common sense.
Still Jersey and Eau de Cologne are in my list, but far away from today. And a 1l bottle of vintage Monsieur de Givenchy. And a 100 ml bottle of Signor Ricci 2. And a 100ml of Charles Jourdan. And on and on and on...

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
I will purchase a couple in No-vember... Not looking to add a large amount to my collection the rest of this year!!!
I'm in. I'm involved in a couple splits that haven't filled yet, and I'll probably buy some bottles for Christmas presents, but other than that, none for me thanks.
How is everybody doing?
I've done well so far - sometime in early Oct I made my last purchase, a vtg Chanel Egoiste splash version (what a lovely fragrance!!!) - since then nothing bought...Was thinking to stop till Nov, but might push myself until Jan 1 2015 b4 making any new purchases...
Vetiver Extraordinaire might be one of the first I'll buy, along with few vintages - in all under 500 is my hope...Then another hiatus till my bonus in mid April 2015 - now let's see if I'm able to keep that up.
I made one purchase yesterday: A Lab on Fire's new Paris*L.A.
But I've been waiting on that one (it wasn't impulsive) and I purchased it with money I made from other bottles I've sold off this month.
Other than that, I have no plans to buy anything else and don't think I will.
I've only got another 5-9 FB purchases to make before I'm taking a looooong hiatus from bottle purchases. The circle shall be complete as far as I'm concerned.
I shall still indulge in splits here and there (let's not talk about splits costing as much as bottles, and certainly not mention oud oils and attars) but I'm soooo close to having my 'holy grail' collection.
So I'm in with No!-vember provided I don't spot any bargains for what's on my list
