    Pretty bottle, hednic. I like the artwork style.

    Indulged in the re-imagined Angel EDT. It is closer to Angel than the first version but way more ethereal and floral than Angel. It floats delightfully on the summer breeze.

    Today I decided to buy TF Plum japonais since I hear rumours about it being discontinued. I almost bought it this summer, but settled instead on Santal carmin.So now I have both ( but no more perfumeshopping for me in a while now ) And Jon, congrats on your new bottle I remember testing it many years ago, and found it very dry and sophisticated. Wonder what I would think now ....

    This August has been very fruitful.
    So far I got Womanity, Alien and Aura from Mugler, Sicily D&G, Shalimar Initial L'Eau, La Vie Est Belle Eclat Lancome, Rituals (some minis from Oriental series, would have to look it up), Black Orchid TF, Narciso Rodriguez For Her set, Girls Can Say Anything by Zadig&Voltaire.
    Also received a few as gifts - Missoni, Imperatrice D&G, Chance Eau Fraiche Chanel, Crystal Noir Versace. Earler got Mitsuko and classical Shalimar.
    Planning on getting Belle D'Opium YSL soon and some more samples in addition to my 30 decants. That's not counting a bunch of frags ordered to friends in other countries, which I'll probably get in a few months, or maybe a year.
    That reads like a lot actually. The plan is to stop buying and to actually enjoy what I have, with the only exception - Midnight Poison, if it becomes available somewhere.

    It is actually very interesting how perception changes. I recently got a decant of a perfume I owned a long time ago, and was surprised how different it smelled to me, a lot lighter, though I could definitely recognize the fragrance when got to its base notes. I wonder how it will seem to me in 10-20 years...

    On a whim I bought Bambou by Weil (it was less than 25 euros). A real scrubber unfortunately. I think I am going to throw it away.
