    Wow, what a beautiful bottle NCal.
    Are you going to open it and wear it or just
    keep it to look at?

    What a cool bottle N.CAL, I hope you enjoy it!

    I bought a 1oz bottle of Insolence EDP. I think I'm officially obsessed with Guerlain.

    Thank you!

    I bought another small decant of Spiritueuse, can't have too many decants of that. And I have samples of Rogue Perfumery Derviche and Chypre Siam on the way!

    Congrats to all!

    My bottle of Allure edp was down to about 1/3 and I decided to supplement it, and the parfum, with the edt.

    I usually don’t buy sets but since the set contained full bottles only at a cheaper price I caved.

    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

    Exactly! I wanted black and I thought I’d come back for gold soon enough and silver is so different from anything I own so might as well save the money by buying the set, especially since it’s full bottles!
