    Indigo Perfumery in Cleveland is back open for appointments so I got to sample fragrances in a real perfume shop for the first time since the pandemic started - it was so lovely to be back! I picked up a Curiosity Set of pocket perfumes from CurioNoir - I think the only place in the U.S. that stocks them. My immediate favorite is Purotu Rose - a dry woody and offbeat rose with some teak and cumin. Looking forward to spending time with the others in the set too.

    Let us what you think of it. It's one of two femme Diors that I enjoyed a lot, the other being Miss Dior.

    I love Miss Dior (org) too, but I've only tried and own the new formulation ( about 2008-2009 version)

    The vintage is definitely worth sampling, I prefer the perfume extrait over the EDT as you get more depth from the scent. Have you tried Sous Le Vent? That's what Diorella reminds me of.

    Well, well, well. Guess who bought a couple of Guerlain classic style. A small decant of vintage (gasp!) Guet-Apens and a FB of Shalimar Serie Limitee. Baby steps, right? Should fit right in with the super basic Surrati Malaki and Swiss Arabian Oudh Cambodi.

    For my Birthday I purchased:
    -Mugler Alien Mirage (totally blind, got a good deal)
    -Robert Piguet Fracas
    -MFK Gentle Fluidity Gold

    And my most prized posession (if it’s authentic)- A small bottle of Dior Midnight Poison. I’m the most excited about this one!

    Funnily, they should all be arriving by the end of today.

    Literally, I need no more perfume, I need more perfume like I need a hole in the head. That said, a "reasonably" priced ($20 with shipping etc) mini of Byzance came to my attention at the tail end of April, and as I've only ever seen them at astronomical prices, I pounced. It smells more or less like Ysatis to me, which I have and love, but have no more need of. So whew, dodged a bullet there!

    Screen Shot 2021-05-16 at 2.00.16 AM.jpg

    I keep eyeballing Paloma Picasso: I really want to try a fresh bottle to see if it's as grotesque and unwearable as the mini I bought years ago, which I think was spoilt. Everyone raves about it, I want in on the magic. But see point one.

    And who knows why, probably because reformulations and perceived scarcity terrifies me, I just bought another vintage Dune edt on eBay.

    Screen Shot 2021-05-16 at 2.01.46 AM.jpg

    Oh, and that really lovely bottle of Shalimar edp in the 2020 limited edition bottle, clothed in pretty oranges and blue branches. I miss wearing Shalimar. I have more bottles of extrait than I should, considering I never wear them. It took me a while to figure out that I'm simply a spray girl, not a splash. I wanted something I could spray and go and be pretty to look at, but I'm addicted to "deals" so eBay it was for me.

    Shalimar 2020.jpg

    And also at the tail end of April, received in May: a (I believe perfectly) preserved bottle of Tabac Blond, I think from the 1980s.
    Not having been alive/aware to smell it previous to its current powdery incarnation (ugh, not for me!) I think it's glorious. I kept hearing it described as a leather fragrance, and obviously, there is no leather to be had in the 2015 on edition, just even more suffocatingly sweet powder than is in Shalimar. Shalimar is about all I can take when it comes to that.

    I don't know how close what I got is to the OG turn of the century version, but dang, it's pretty darned great.

    Also, this is not my picture, and I'd never take one like this (it was the seller's) but perhaps anyone who knows about dating bottles can chime in here:
