  1. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Hi all,
    I'm looking forward to the new year. 2008 was a complete failure for me and I am determined to do better. I will need all the help I can get. I still haven't come up with a purchasing plan...
  2. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Thanks Leesee!
    Dimitri, my goal for 2008 was to buy no more than 3 perfumes. I have no clue how many I have bought so far and I ended up giving most of them away. I have been doing this for about a...
  3. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Thanks Seattlelight, that is very kind of you ;-)

    I've been seriously thinking about the experiences of all of you posting on this thread; about self-control and its rewards. It has taken me a...
  4. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    I simply have to tell you about my little success story from the other day. I was so close to buying Black Orchid but managed to stop myself and decided to sample it properly before deciding to buy....
  5. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Moving to groups could be an option or maybe posting a note there about our existence :-)
    I don't mind staying in the 'official' rehab because it will make us easier to find for others who might...
  6. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Welcome Leesee!
    I think the support group will definitely carry on into the new year. Good things have come out of it and many people have changed their buying habits. Looking forward to our future...
  7. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Hey everyone, after avoiding Basenotes for a bit (and buying less, I must say), I decided to see if the thread is still running and how you are doing.

    Seattlelight, I am so impressed with your...
  8. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Thank you! This little chat has definitely helped me to see more clearly what I want out of perfume.
    I have to take a closer look at Lucky scent and start ordering samples. I'd like to experiment a...
  9. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Wow, thank you for all the ideas!

    I have tried Carnal Flower but it didn't 'fit' somehow, it was a bit too edgy. I still have a sample somewhere and will give it another go since it is probably...
  10. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Quote: Frenchie Day - are there any particular notes that you prefer? Any "feel" (classical, minimalist, feminine, unisex) that you prefer to have in your frags? What about other areas of your...
  11. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Thanks for the advice guys, it makes me feel more positive. It seems that I'm not yet out of the phase when I want to buy many perfumes because I have not yet figured out what works for me. At the...
  12. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Hi everyone, I'm glad this thread is still running.

    Plumeria, I think it was ok to buy this frag. If you don't like it you could probably easily sell it on ebay since it is in demand.

    I, on...
  13. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    I completely understand what you mean by one purchase opening the door to more. I want more and more, have been creating a wishlist that grows longer every day. I have also bought about 5-6 samples...
  14. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Hi! How is everybody doing?
    I must say that I'm not exactly sticking to my resolution and to be quite honest, I doubt that I will be able to buy only 3 perfumes this year. Last week I bought...
  15. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Thank you Beachroses! I am really enjoying it. It is so perfect for winter, it warms me up.
    But of course, now that I have purchased one perfume, I want more. I will definitely wait for a couple of...
  16. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    OK, well that sounds good. I have to report my first purchase of 2008. Yesterday I bought L'Heure Bleue. I've been thinking about it for several months and yesterday found a nice deal on Ebay. So...
  17. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    I haven't managed to get to the Perfumerie Nasreen unfortunately. I still found a regular mall experience with SAs difficult, I almost bought a bottle because I was being talked into it. Luckily, I...
  18. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    There are some kind of internet shops that advertise on ebay and provide links. I used to buy things off them and it was always ok. But then I got hooked on buying and it took me forever to get over...
  19. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    I've never sold anything on ebay although I'm sure it would be a reasonable thing to do. Must figure out how it is done :-)
    You know what? Okay, you didn't reach your goal, March 22nd. But don't...
  20. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Hey Seattlelight, I wouldn't feel bad about this purchase since it is obviously a perfume that you love and will wear.
    Still have not bought anything for myself but got my BF a bottle yesterday -a...
  21. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    That really sounds like me. I've been thinking about getting Jardins de Bagatelle, L'Heure Bleue, Jicky, Carnal Flower and Tubereuse Indiana. Before the non-buying decision I would have gone and...
  22. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    In the last few days I've been thinking about my 3 allowed purchases for the year. It is a little bit annoying to feel like this so soon into the year. I'll have to try and wait for at least a couple...
  23. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    For the last 3 weeks I've been wearing the same perfume every day. That's something I never used to do. I like it - it is a chance to explore a scent and get used to it, feel comfortable in it. I...
  24. Re: 2008 New Year's resolution thread - support group?

    Hey everybody, what a great thread, I'm in! My New Year resolution is to buy no more than 3 perfumes this year. I might buy them in different seasons or on the same day, no rules here. One of them is...
