    Congrats on the Vol de Nuit, N.Cal, that looks to be in good condition.

    A package of about 13 samples is due to arrive from The Perfumed Court today. Normally I wouldn't consider this post-worthy, but packages from the U.S. are currently taking longer so receiving anything feels like a privilege right now and even more special than usual!

    The house of Cartier got some money from me, this time around:
    Baiser Volé

    Eau de Cartier Goutte de Rose. I think this was limited release, thought I missed this one, as it disappeared for a while. It was b*tch to find, until one day, there was large size tester on eBay. Sometimes I get lucky. Not the most sophisticated Rose in the world, but one I have not stopped thinking about, like The One that Got Away.

    And I went for a pre-fall purchase that i’ll probably wearit once in a while in summer, too.
