    Uh, I forgot. I gave as gift one bottle today - Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose.

    Overall:
    Sold 27 (25+2) bottles.

    I'm feeling so amazing. It seems to me that the value of my fragrances has increased enormously. Now I look very different at my closet, in a very good way.

    Thanks! They all turned out great. I had tried Dolce Amalfi before and the newest release of ESP, but not the 2012.

Despite this I can't wait to wear it during all the upcoming travels this year and of course in between them. I'm a bit angry with myself because I already have several planned fragrant purchases and I want my overall bottle count to go down and not up this year, but travel sprays are needed, convenient and easily emptied, so I won't be too hard on myself for this. I'll just decide later what other fragrance I want I won't be getting this year instead.
    +1 to Wardrobe.

    I started 2020 with:
    Wardrobe 37 (including minis and travel sprays)
    Samples 11
    Backups 2 (+4 minis)
    My goal this year is -2 in wardrobe and +2/+5 or something along the lines in backups. I have no goals for samples.

    Current wardrobe balance 0 (-6; +6).
    Samples balance: 1 (-1; +2)
    Backups balance: 2 (+2)
    I found a very affordable bottle of Shalimar Cologne online and went for it, and it arrived yesterday, and I instantly fell in love. +1 in Wardrobe. Edit: and my Shalimar EDT arrived, too. Now that I have tried them all (more or less current), I can surely say I prefer all the lighter concentrations of Shalimar. EDP is gorgeous, yes, but it's also the most 'mature' and the hardest to wear.
    I still have one purchase planned for upcoming months and my swap package should arrive within a week, and then I'll have to stop myself for quite a while and start focusing on finishing something, as I don't want the numbers and bottle count to start creeping up too much.

    I was able to get a small sample of vintage M7 by YSL. I got a couple of wearings out of it and now it is empty. Good one though!

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Change last night’s +36 to +41.

    Ended up buying Fate Woman, Ubar, Honour Woman, Opus X, and Habanita. I never shop online or do blind buys (I recall sampling Fate and enjoying it but years ago....) but most everything is closed here.

    Hopefully this works out in my favor!
    Favorite Houses:
    Hermès
    Rogue Perfumery
    Zoologist

    Loves:
    Florals (especially rose, tuberose, cherry blossom, orange blossom, osmanthus, ylang ylang, immortelle, violet, jasmine, plum blossom, heliotrope, and iris)
    Orientals (especially spicy, woody, and floral orientals)
    Boozy notes
    Chypres (especially with real oakmoss)
    Rich gourmands
    Animalic fragrances
    Great longevity and sillage

    "Stopping for now," I said, mere hours before ordering a decant (my first decant ever) of Zoologist Bat.

    I think we are on a similar quarantine kick. I also added nine this week, and likely will add 2-3 more next.
