    Some planned purchases:

    Dior Feve Delicieuse
    Zoologist Hummingbird
    Zoologist Moth
    Zoologist Camel
    Rogue Perfumery Chypre Siam
    Perhaps some others from Rogue
    Initio Side Effect
    Amouage Sunshine Woman
    Hermes Agar Ebene
    Perhaps Bortnikoff Oud Monarch, still have to skin test it...

    Maybe I will get distracted by other things but those are my planned purchases. A lot will be bought in March with some spilling over into April because I will be traveling for a bit this month.

    Just caved and bought a 50 ml bottle of IRISSS by Xerjoff.

    There went my entire perfume budget for this year.

    Who do you think you're fooling? One vintage bottle of Cuir de Russie parfum saunters in front of your nose and you'll fold up like a cardboard box.

    Just scored a 50ml bottle of the discontinued CdG Daphne off ebay. The seller seemed a bit dodgy but fortunately the product I received was authentic and in good condition.

    N.Cal, here are the notes for 4160 Tuesdays Truth Beauty Freedom Love:

    Perfume dialect: fruity amber

    Top notes: Honey, bergamot, apricot

    Heart notes: hay, vanilla, iris, violets

    Base notes: tobacco, musk, woods

    From my sample, it has a bit of a candied smell to it (probably the honey, apricot & violet combination). I wouldn’t call it a gourmand though. Possibly a floriental.

    I would counter that with a vintage bottle of Irisss, she needs at least another 50ml worth of juice anyways

    Perhaps somethings similar to a Guerlain like L'Instant, Mon Guerlain, or Angelique Noire?
