    Congrats on everyone's finishes!

    Piney, what are your plans for Oud Wood Intense?

    Today I drained the last drops of my 5 ml mini bottle of Terre de Lumière by L'Occitane.This pretty little mini bottle was a gift from my aunt and godmother. It lasted me for 2 years and was quite extensively worn. I find these mini bottles quite economical, as usually just a drop does the job very well and lasts me all day. It counted 45 wears here on Basenotes, but it was already almost half-full when I joined... And I was pretty frugal with my fragrance use back then! Seeing these numbers I'm becoming rather hesitant to blind buy mini bottles, especially of rich scents, as they can still last me years.
    No plans to rebuy for now, although I might as I really enjoy the scent and it was cozy and super easy to wear. At the moment I have Mon Guerlain EDT which fits the same role, and who knows what will I think when that one is finished!

    No plans to repurchase ClockworkAlice, it was wonderful but I have another from TF, Tobacco Oud Intense that I find so similar, and I have about 50ml of it left so I think I would rather pursue other avenues. I've been really enjoying the Les Heures Voyageuses line from Cartier recently, especially Oud & Oud and Oud & Musk. These are the top prospects on my radar.

    This morning I finished my 15 ml travel spray of Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea.
    It's funny how I never really liked this scent - it's one of my mom's favourites since 2000s, and when she first showed it to me I was like "eh, too subtle/green/too nothing", and, what was the worst for me as a teen, not sexy, sensual or alluring at all.

    Last year I gifted my mom a set of Green Tea again and when she finally opened it, she gave me a spritz. And it was so refreshing and calming that I had to rethink everything I've been thinking about it. Maybe I just grew up enough to like a fragrance that simply soothes, calms and quietly whispers instead the one that invigorates or makes you appear like something more than you are. So I bought a travel spray, and everytime I use it it reminds me of my mom and her love for Green Tea.

    I might rebuy it next summer, or I might not. I'm keeping it open.

    Kyoto is so darn good. Haven't smelled Zagorsk in years but now I'm thinking I should revisit!

    Finished my sample of Le Labo's Santal 33. I have mixed feelings about this one. The jury is still out on this one folks!

    Finished my bottle of Miyako by Auphorie. I should also mentioned that I spilled some when I first got it(so it’s not like I killed an entire bottle of the stuff). It’s so nice. Hopefully they bring it back!

    I liked them quite a bit, but I think not. When I’m in the mood for incense, I’ll go for my Sahara Noir or Interlude Man. I like simplifying my choices and I like them better anyway.

    I drained my 10 ml travel spray of Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic this morning. Ah, it's so beautiful, I'm going to miss it so much. This one was a grower - it was just a strong like/infatuation when I bought it, but the more I wore it, the more I loved it. Will definitely need a new and much bigger bottle next summer.

    Congrats on yet another Polo, Danny!

    ...today I finished my 4711's Acqua Colonia Lime & Nutmeg - a 170 ml bottle! - while spraying it on my mask this morning. I kept it in the fridge and only fully worn it ~30 times (it's a great refresher/out of the shower scent in summer), most of this huge bottle was used up to disinfect and freshen my masks after washing/before wearing and also to spray my laundry and towels. It lasted since April this way - when you use a fragrance as a functional one, it dries up very quickly. I am very willing to explore other scents from the line in the future, as I was happy with this cologne (I'm not a big fan of the original though). I'll be keeping my eye on deals for Grapefruit & Pink Pepper and Blood orange & Basil especially for the next spring. I'm open to other variations, too. One at the time though.

    Good going, CA! Those varieties sound nice.

    I’ve been using regular 4711 Echt Kölnisch Wasser, as hand sanitizer, mask spray and to wipe surfaces that need to be touched while out during the day. I recently bought a 400 ml refill bottle, which I reported in the appropriate thread, but forgot to mention here that I have gone through one 90 ml not refillable and three refillable 60 mls since March.

    Wood Sage and Sea Salt is beautiful and calming.

    I recently finished a sample of Tauer's Phtaloblue. I was looking for an out-of-the-box aquatic, and this is that--it just wasn't one I decided to pull the trigger on for a FB. I do have a weak spot for his perfumes in general though.

    Hi ClockworkAlice—I am crazy over his Le Maroc pour Elle and also love his Rose de Kandahar. I bought them several years ago though and am not sure if they are the same. I find Andy’s perfumes are bold and full of life.

    ^^^they are just great, aren’t they? I also have Sotto la Luna Gardenia, Vanilla Flash (which is a lot like Rose de K), and I have a bottle of Attar AT on the way.

    I finished my bottle of more or less current issue Diorella today. It will definitely be replaced.
