    Default First frag purchase of 2018?

    With the new year right around the corner, what will be your first fragrance purchase? Mine will be Tom Ford, Grey Veviter, edp--long on the wish list.

    Whichever fragrance(s) become(s) available in 2018 from houses I collect and which I don't currently have

    Undecided. I'm more of an impulse buyer. Lately I loved Tam Dao, so possibly this one. Chances are also high for obscure things like Lutens' De Profundis, Orto Parisis Terroni, even Secretions Magnifiques might come my way sooner or later.

    If I discover where it is sold in Europe, I will definitely buy Straight to Heaven Extreme Kilian. That is all.

    Most likely a bottle of Prince Classic, a German EDT which happens to be not just extremely inexpensive but very easy to find where I live as well

    I have some travel sizes of the new Clubman things coming, (Whisky Woods, Gent's Gin, and Brandy Spice) something tells me it will be one or more of those.

    I know this: no resolutions to not buy or to cut back. I fail every time. No planned first purchase.

    For years I was spending hundreds of dollars every month. The last 2 months I haven't purchased anything. Not even samples.

    So... Not sure what will be my 1st purchase of 2018. I would have said Clive Christian 1872 Vetiver, but I think that is no longer available. So, probably by Kilian - Straight to Heaven Extreme. Unless that goes away too before I pull the trigger.

    My resolution in 2018 is to sell off some of my backups that I know I will never need.
    Current Winter Favorites:

    1. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
    2. Brückner - Aoud 1
    3. Creed - Royal Oud
    4. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Generation Man
    5. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    6. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    7. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Mortal Skin
    8. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions

    I'm not trying to buy anything. I'm first focusing on enjoying and fully exploring my current collection until I either get bored or until something knocks my socks off so amazingly that I must-own it. If I buy something then it's going to be some kind of great scent.

    On my 'to buy' list that I recently had lined up were:

    Creed Silver Mountain Water
    Creed Vetiver-Geranium
    Creed Bois de Cedrat
    Acqua di Parma Colonia Club
    Acqua di Parma Fico di Amalfi
    Acqua di Parma Bergamotto di Calabria
    4711 Remix Cologne - Anniversary Edition <- (If anyone can help me get this, I would be grateful.)
    Kilian Straight to Heaven Extreme
    Xerjoff Nio

    There are still about 3 dozen samples I have yet to wear. This year is likely going to be a year where I test, evaluate, measure and figure out what will be in my collection and what I might get rid of that I blind bought. I have limited shelf space even after buying a new temporary shelf. So, I think I have to halt the buying for a while. I'm at a point where I need to be selective, discerning.

    If I am to make another purchase, it will be soon while holiday discounts are active. Otherwise, it's getting harder to justify any new purchases. Definitely nothing "planned" for next year.

    I cannot find Straight to Heaven Extreme in an online search. Does anyone know if it's still being sold? I've been thinking about it. I might buy it.

    With my preference being classic fragrances (ones from before 2000, for example) and seeing that I’ve smelled nearly everything meeting this criteria that would interest me already coupled with the fact that I’m extremely picky, pretty much 100% satisfied with my wordrobe and have a minimalist nature absolutely nothing is on my radar at the moment, in fact there’s a there’s a few I’m looking to get rid of in 2018. I just stick around here out of pure boredom. If I do buy anything it would be a backup bottle of something teeming with Oakmoss

    I think that perfume is sold out, because it's Christmas.
