    I ordered Angel Eau Croisiere today for a mid-winter pick me up. It’s a blind buy, but MuglerUSA.com had it 20% off ...

    B0ECA05F-F184-46DE-9AA0-BFAE1BABD405.jpg

    And since it was 20% off, I also added Angel My Philter to my basket. It’s also a blind buy, but Ive been interested in it since FiveOaks posted about it. She called it Angel Parfum Eau de Parfum Philtre Volupté (it’s just called My Philter on the USA site). It is a sandelwood and vanilla scent designed to wear layered over Angel.
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Found a barely-used bottle of this on ebay this week and snagged it for my mom, who loved it from a sample spray. I am always dabbing/spraying her with samples but Chai was the first where she mentioned being actually excited by a perfume. Was hoping to save it for Mother's Day, but don't know if I can wait that long to give it to her. Feeling fortunate!

    French Lover / Bois d'Orage
    by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    My local House of Fraser counter has the set of 3/10mls sizes on sale along with some 50mls and 100mls in different fragrances. They were 30% off and now down to 50% so decided I liked French Lover and bought it.

    Not online by the way and the store cannot ship either so you need to go into your local branch which sales Frederic Malle to find.

    What’s the verdict on My Philter, shadesofbleu? On Eau Croisière as well, for that matter.

    A spontaneous buy today, Zara Gardenia. Always searching for a gardenia perfume that at least resembles the flower. This one comes closer than many expensive brands. (I’m talking to you, Chanel Gardénia.) Very pretty, I must say!
