Thread: No!-vember

  1. #1

    Default No!-vember

    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!

    For me, the outlook for November will be like October - normal purchasing.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    More like sellvember for me.
    I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.

    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.

    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.

    I reckon on doing well this month, but the arrival of overstock at discounters in time for the holidays may do me in.

    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...

    This is me. Will I buy? Yes. But I'll try my best to be sensible.

    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.

    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 sampled a bunch of vetiver-based fragrances and this one is at the top of my to buy list too.

    Agree - I have sampled this too many times & it was love from first sniff...With the Malle house having been bought by another corporation, I thought it was time to pull the trigger & buy this b4 it gets reformulated. My official sample is amazingly strong for a vetiver - lasts 20+ hrs - wonder how the current issue is with rgds to longevity / projection...

    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
    What I'd like to try
    Prices Rreduced!UK Only:Kilian Incense Oud, Pure Oud/Ensar Oud/Tom Ford

    My UK Swapsies!

    Need 2 Roja caps if anyone can help. Muchas gracias

    Current favourites:
    Frederic Malle The Night
    Creed Spice and Wood
    Creed Pure White Cologne
    Kilian Extreme Oud
    Roja Dove Diaghilev
    Roja Dove UAE
    Roja Dove Fetish Pour Homme/Puredistance M
    Armani Prive Oud Royal
    Ormonde Jayne Black Gold
