    Maison Lancome Oud Ambroisie. So lucky to have found it now that it's discontinued (if anyone is looking, I got mine from Harvey Nichols, I think they have a few more left)
    Oud, honey and rose goodness, love it!!

    I bought second bottle of Pharrell Williams for my girlfriend. I can highly recommend this scent. It is lovely and very original with good parameters.

    Do you have more than one back up of GGA pour Femme?

    I also bought a 50ml bottle of Eau Duelle EDT and a 75ml bottle of Fleur de Peau EDP both are from Diptyque. Very quick delivery time, ordered one day and it arrived on the next day.

    They discontinued it??!! This was my favorite Maison Lancôme. Drat!

    I bought something to help get through this next week’s moving stress, even adding 2nd day air because I know I will need some jollying up.

    No, it's my first one. I actually think I should get more eventually - it's a flanker after all and who knows for how long it will still be on the shelves? It's just this one is rather expensive even discounted, for a price of one Gucci I could buy at least two Guerlains. So I just keep looking for bigger discounts that never come up.

    That's interesting about prices. Shalimar and Samsara are only a little bit cheaper than what my bottle of GGA pour Femme cost and the Mon Guerlain range are a bit more expensive when comparing 90ml/100ml sizes.

    Must be different prices in different countries!
    I usually buy Guerlain heavily discounted, and Gucci just don't get significant discounts here.

    Edit:
    If we're talking about retail prices with 0 discounts, they are rather similar:
    GGA: 30 ml - 79.98€; 50 ml - 108€; 90 ml - 136€.
    50 ml of the new Shalimar Philtre is 105€, Mon Guerlain EDP has very similar pricing to GGA, Aqua Allegorias are 89€ for 75 ml, Terracotta/Meteorites are ~80€ for 100 ml. 20% discounts for bigger sizes are frequent in official stores, you just have to wait for them. I usually either wait for discounts and buy retail (Terracotta, Philtre and some of my Aqua Allegorias are bought retail) or turn to discounters for older scents - I paid for my Samsara, Insolence, Mon Guerlain, Black Perfecto and Shalimars ~30-ish € this way (I usually choose 50 ml size). If the price difference is not very significant, I always prefer buying retail, but if it's half the price or even 60-70% off in discounter, of course I'll take the cheaper option.

    Sadly, yes, I'm afraid they have chosen to discontinue Oud Ambroisie along with Lavandes Trianon, Tubéreuses Castane, Parfait de Rôses and possibly Iris Dragées. I'm still on the lookout for Tubéreuses Castane and Iris Dragées. I've managed to find the others thankfully, including a back up bottle for Lavandes Trianon! I have to say Oud Ambroisie is absolutely stunning and I love it too ��

    Yes, gorgeous bottle, Jon and congrats khanada on the 4160 Tuesdays, which reminded me (again) to search for their Dirty Honey, which I was finally ready to take the plunge and buy, but now I cannot find it! Luckyscent has others of their fragrances, but not DH. Any suggestions welcome on that one.

    Today I got two things from my list, Bruno Fazzolari Zdravetz, because the Balkan music band I sing with is called Zdravets (both spellings transliterated from Cyrillic, so both are correct!), the national flower of Bulgaria - a rosy geranium; and La Maison de la Vanille Vanilles du Monde 5-bottle (15 ml) coffret.

    That should keep me for awhile...

    These bottles are wonderful. I wonder if it's similar to something Armani Prive Rose d'arabie or TF Noir de Noir.

    I agree, such beautiful bottles! Oud Ambroisie is very sweet with the jammy honey dominating along with an oud that's not so tame, the Rose is pretty forward too. While there are common notes with the two you mentioned, I find no similarities as such and for comparison, I find Rose d'Arabie darker & heavier and NdN earthier. I find the dry down of Rôses Berberanza from the same line to be mildly similar to the dry down of Oud Ambroisie.

    Today I bought Kerosene Pretty Machine. I've been daydreaming about it since last year and thought I better pull the trigger soon because it's definately an early spring fragrance. It's chief note is linden.

    I'm really enjoying the marine notes and the mass market composition aesthetic. Vibes a bit like Erolfa.

    Oh, no!! I love Tubereuses and Iris Dragees too. Aargh. I should have known, perfumes like that, were too good for a house like Lancôme to keep going. I bought Jasmins Marzipan on the spot, and glad I am, as, even if they have kept it in production, I wonder if they have, or will, mess it up.

    I capitulated today to another Ormonde Jayne purchase. Orris Noir, a big 4 ounces. I love its seasonless brown beauty. For some reason, it reminds me of a Postmodern Dune, the soap, the woods, the equipoise. I dropped my decant yesterday, and it has rolled under something in the chaos of moving, and it is probably hiding behind a growing stack of boxes. I had the new Orris Noir shipped to the lake house, another carrot for the stick, that I am using to get through this move—can’t smell it again, until I get there. My boyfriend will be back in the city tomorrow, for day surgery on his back, but he needs a more comfortable environment in which to recover, than the chaos here.

    What other notes do you pick up from it? If it has some oriental notes in it along with the rose and oud, it could be something that I enjoy.
