    Default My Jardin d'Amalfi is almost gone

    I have enough JdA from my decant for one more useage, and I don't really know what to do when it's gone.

    I love the stuff, but I can't really see myself buying anymore until spring. My humble collection won't be quite the same without it, though it probably won't get much use until then anyway. When the time comes, I have to decide if I want 250 mL (in that annoying splash bottle) or participate in another split.

    In the meantime, should I just find something new to add to my collection? If so, what?

    I have Aventus, MI, GIT, Vetiver Geranium, and Spice and Wood. Hrmm....

    Parting with that last drop will be such sweet sorrow.

    If you enjoy it that much get in on another split.

    It's just a fragrance. Use it up while doing some activity that fits it and enjoy it. Then go back to your regulars and in the meantime sample some others. Your "Tried" list in your wardrobe is so small (unless you didn't update it). I would try another 50 to 100 samples before the spring and see what you think before splurging on a bottle of Amalfi.

    I sprayed Jardin d'Amalfi on a card and its been freshening up my room. This is so dreamy!

    Maybe sample Lumiere Noire Pour Homme and APOM by MFK if you haven't.

    Either wear them on their own or layer them. I get a kick out of them when layer them side by side.

    This is available in a 30ml travel size that may be more cost effective for you.

    I am way behind on my "tried" list. I should update it.

    Well you'll have the months until that time to ponder and decide what's in your best interest.

    There's a certain satisfaction when it's finished because when I buy it again I know I'm buying something that passed the test of multiple wearings and possible boredom. It's a keeper if it lasts that long and I wish for more.

    I think that's a sign you're a fraghead. I do the same but then I look at my budget and my other bottles then I'm briefly relieved. Until the next time I reach for that same bottle lol

    Man, I've only got one bottle under 40% full! I had a back up of it, but sold it, I wondered how long it would take me to actually need to open it. Probably years. When you own 30 bottles, it is really hard to run out of anything.

    I know that feeling. I have multiple backups for GpH I, M7, Tuscan Leather, TdH, Red Vetyver, Jubilation XXV, Private Label, Tumulte pour Homme, Dior Vetiver... Well, if anything... if one day I decide I no longer like them, or can't wear them all in my lifetime, there's a small fortune I could convert back into cash. ;-)

    I fight the urge, but I definitely know the feeling. I've only been into fragrances for a few years, but when my Tam Dao got to around 50% I had the urge to go buy more. It's now at about 25%, but I'm still resisting. Then I have to work out whether to get the EDT again or get the EDP. I kind of hope I don't end up with both, but it's definitely a possibility

    You're not alone. For fragrances that I like enough to buy a backup bottle, I buy the backup pretty much from the start of using the first bottle.

    If the Creed Boutique sale's rumours are true (15% off??), buy it then and you'll get Creed summer pricing

    I finally wore this today.



    This is feminine but I like it. It smells soft and cute. It has that "you smell good" without trying to smell good vibe. As far as projection/longevity, if you wear this while indoors you'll be fine.

    This is perfect for an atomizer (1.7 oz). But for a feminine scent like this, I don't know if a full 8.4 oz bottle makes sense.

    Funny you bumped this... I'm wanting in on a split I think!

    Unfortunately, remik's JdA split seems to be filling rather slowly, but that's understandable.

    Well, then why don't you join the split and help it get closed faster?! It's not going to close itself, and if everyone waits until just one spot is remaining, it's kind of pointless... With everyone delaying, splits only take longer to close, not shorter, because everyone waits on "everyone else" to join first. See something you want - claim it - this way these splits will close in no time at all! :-) Just today alone I closed two splits where people were waiting for the final spot to be available, and both of them missed out on it because within minutes others sent requests in. And with me, it's first come - first served... Now those who wanted the last spot are out of luck, if they want the fragrance quickly. They can of course sign up for the new splits I opened, but now the wait time starts all over again...

    I'm mad about that Creed Boutique "deal." I thought they were filling up atomizers for free. Sorry about the wrong info, by the way.

    I think I want this now.

    No worries, I had read about the "deal" a little earlier and had already been disappointed by it.

    Spice & Wood 250ml flacon @ $435
    Pure White Cologne 250ml flacon @ $425

    If you must have it and love it that much, then get the flacon. Otherwise the is a whole world of fragrances out there to discover.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
