    Experimentum Crucis by Etat Libre D'Orange 100ml EDP



    Couldn't get it online so had a business associate in Paris pick it for me there and send it to me. When in doubt...

    I bought two 2ml samples from Dame perfumery and they sent that with 6 more samples the same size plus a tiny jar of facial cream, for $US20 flat.
    They also sent a pre-stamped addressed postcard to them with lines for selection, name & address for "a friend" to receive free samples.
    See the "Free to a good home" thread for details.


    ETA I just found a seventh extra sample - a beautiful Mimosa Mixte oil. Unreal.

    House of Matriarch is having a huge 50% off sale so I decided to take the leap and blind buy two smaller sizes of Ambre Vie and Nouveanille.

    Decided to revisit an old friend, Unforgettable by Revlon. Found it online. Can't wait to smell it again. This was a fave of mine, decades ago.

    Hopefully, it will smell as good as I remember. I've already dug out our Nat King Cole CD, for a listen.

    Thanks N.CAL Fragrance Reviewer!

    And grats to the both of you who purchased Jo Malone Plum Blossom! That was on my wishlist this month as well, but after the following purchases, the s.o. has all but handed me a cease and desist order on fragrance spending this month... lol, sigh. He IS right, but again, no regrets:
