    Default Targeted Purchases for 2015

    I am betting that most of us have by now spent our 2014 fragrance budgets. Thus, what are on your lists to buy (or at least sample with an eye to buying) next year? I have Creed's new one, Vetiver Geranium, on my list. I think it will be a nice addition to the summer rotation. Would also like to expand further into Roja Dove's output.

    If I can get my hands on Ciel de Gum while the exchange rate is still favorable.

    April Aromatics Ray of Light is a must buy, the most beautiful citrus I've smelled to date. Zegna Haitian Vetiver is also on the buy list.

    I'd like to sample Xerjoff Oud Stars Najaf and Alexandria II, as well as the Henry Jacques range.

    I was thinking maybe
    Zegna Javanese Patchouli

    I may snag a bottle of DHP on my way through customs, but I just got a bottle of DHI and wore it out to dinner this evening and after comparing the two I'm very satisfied with the DHI

    I also have a nice sample of Tiffany coming and may like that also.

    Plus I have 11 more 3 ml samples sitting on my desk to go through including Tauers, Kerosene, Slumberhouse and others, so this should be fun

    Possibly a bottle of Fico Di Amalfi and a backup bottle of Armani Code Sport Athlete when the weather gets warmer.

    That's it.

    Eau d'Hermes crystal flacon from the 70's would be cool. As would vintage Santal Noble. When it comes to fragrances still in production, Bigarade Concentree and Cologne Pour le Soir are in my radar.

    Being pretty ignorant about them, I hope that next year I can focus on Middle Eastern fragrances and oud oil.

    I'd like some French Lover/Bois de Orage.

    The thought of sampling some oud oils is also calling to me.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I’m definitely aiming to go for fewer bottles this year after a real, by my standards, buying spree recently. The main one I’d like is Coromandel. Some others I’m contemplating

    Loewe 7
    Chanel Pour Monsieur
    Grey Vetiver edt when it arrives

    I’d like to try a few more incense fragrances than I currently own, but they aren’t that easy to get hold of, and I can’t afford blind buys as most are (to my budget) quite pricey.

    Not sure yet. I'd like to purchase maybe two or three new bottles in 2015. And definitely cut back on sampling...

    I have my eyes on:

    Map of the Heart : Black Heart
    Any new CdG releases
    And probably spring for a full bottle of Songe d'un Bois d'Ete at some point

    hopefully 2015'll have something worth buying.

    2014 was even worse than 2013.

    I think I found only 4 to 7 bottles FBW.

    Maybe a bottle or two back up bottles for Tea for Two...maybe Nasomatto Blamage and Black Afgano. And maybe even save up for a Clive Christian.

    But I think 2015 will be a selling year for me. since becoming active again on this site late 2013 has caused a great deal of pain to my wallet in the past year.
