    Default Vintage fragrance I bought today

    That time of the year folks.
    But first wishing you all a Happy New Year. Hope this year is way better than the last.

    First 4 years(2016-2019) : https://www.basenotes.net/threads/42...I-bought-today
    2020: https://www.basenotes.net/threads/47...ght-today-2020

    This might become a quarterly thing if the thread becomes too big.

    2020 was a year where I slowed down my purchases. The good news is PStoller picked up the slack and Ali AD helped out towards the end. So we did fine this year

    I did get something good recently. It was a gift from a good friend and a star basenoter. Smells better than Pino IMO. Has a sweetness that Pino lacks.
    FBW if price is good.

    Ah, yes -- another year, another 365 bottles for PStoller. I guess we should consider ourselves lucky that Hednic isn't interested in buying up vintage bottles.

    I'm trying to think of the best vintage acquisition I had in 2020. It might have been one that cost me absolutely nothing: a bottle of La Nuit parfum by Paco Rabanne, which was a gift from an amazingly generous Basenoter.

    Bogner’s Deep Forest has passively been on my purchase list for years. Every time I think about it I seemed to get side tracked by something else. I need to move it to my active purchase list. All of these lists are mental BTW, which is part of the issue.


    As I think back through 2020, I’m not 1,000,000% sure what my best vintage purchase is as it was a slow year for me as well. However, right at the end of the year I picked up (from another great BNr. God, I love this community!) vintage Millesime Imperial and Green Irish Tweed. If that wasn’t my best acquisitions, then I don’t know what is and they’d only be perhaps 2nd best.

    Here’s to 2021 being profoundly better than 2020, in every possible way!!!!

    LOVE this one. I smelled it when I visited Zurich, Switzerland and it took many years of trial and error to figure out what I smelled.

    I do anticipate a lull in backups going into 2021 as many of the desired backups were acquired in 2020.

    That's only because he bought them all when they were new. But I did buy a bottle of Jean-Jacques Vivier Signature today in his honor. And, like Diddy, I almost bought Bogner Deep Forest before I got sidetracked. Ah, well: there's always tomorrow.

    Well you do need 365 fragrances for 2021.
    Start with Bogner. Good one.
    As for Jean-Jacqurs Vivier, I have a mini and is OK.
    I find my tastes a bit orthogonal to Hednic's.

    I don't suppose there's any way to enforce a rule about eliminating mass photos from quoted posts, is there?

    Someone posts a series of photos of 4 or 5 or 8 new bottles they bought, and then someone else quotes and reposts all the photos just to say "Congratulations!" and then someone else quotes and reposts them just to say "Nice choices!" and so on and so on... until pretty soon I'm spending a quarter of my day scrolling through repeated photographs.

    Just sayin'.....

    Also, I'd like to quote from Bavard's kickoff post for the new VSOTD thread, and hope it can apply here as well:

    Also new, we are encouraging use of the multi-quote button ("+) to avoid even the appearance of trying to boost post count, which would be lame in the extreme.

    By all means, delete photos in quotes that aren’t necessary for contextual clarity. And I love the multi quote tool, although it can be hard to work with on a cell phone and across multiple pages.

    No worries... as soon as it’s officially 2021 I’m going to make a purchase of Deep Forest and be done with it.

    I would bet it was Egoiste, or the cologne Concentree.

    Giorgio Beverly Hills for Men V.I.P. Special Reserve has been on my radar for a while. Grabbed a 5ml sample to see if I want to chase down a FB.

    Received vintage Patou Sublime today and I don’t like it. My memory must be faulty. If anyone would like to have it, please PM me, it needs a new home. I am giving it away as there is no way for me to tell if it’s gone off or I just don’t like it.

    Sport de Paco Rabanne - I already have a bottle back in the U.S. (along with about 30 others), but who knows when I'll be able to go back and get it (them), so I re-bought it to be shipped here (as I've done with several others.)
