    Samples:

    Paco Rabanne Phantom:
    Really liked this in store, going to sample more

    Mandarin + Molecule 01:
    I like the smell of Mandarins a lot, and Iso E Super might help it last longer and add a bit of depth. Could be a good one

    Also 6 bottles of Versace L'homme. Bought at a fantastic price and each came with a free promo weekend style bag. The plan is to sell the 6 bottles of Versace at a slight loss (a too good to refuse price for quick clearance) and then sell off the bags to make some profit which means some fragrances I kept are "free" or almost "free".

    Most will be gone to friends. Will be getting rid of the Ralph Lauren lot, D&G light blue (originals and discover vulcano's), 1998 edit of YSL "in love again", Boss the scent private accord, Givenchy Gentleman (Second bottle I have so no need for the one bought this month). Pretty much looking to clear around 65% of this months hoard making the rest around £5 a bottle.

    Got a D&G The one Gentleman in that lot as well, which although I have been tempted to keep, I've just got too many barbershop style fragrances as it is, and since it's discontinued, makes sense to get rid.

    Picked up D&G the one sport and Gucci Sport (not pictured) which I'm sure collectors will have from me (I'm not a fan of either to be honest).

    I had a few boxed aramis but gone now (thankfully). That's made me realise how much I'm not a fan of patchouli, although I will keep some of those scents for some use.

    Will likely have a few months off buying now, need to spend my time buying another ex retail display cabinet instead (and UV film to go with it of course)

Pictures taken now of those though.... 1 sold so I only have 5. Yeah, that's this months purchases (Bear in mind I do have some 400+ so this is just a "build up" month by getting some fantastic priced fragrances and shifting most off for a bit of profit to reduce the total cost of my collection). The first of them arrived around the 8th I recall (various liquidation auctions, end of the line stuff etc. I run a clothing business myself so I get quite a few chances to bulk supplies before they hit auctions).

    Aramis as well which sold (not pictured).... Couldn't stand the stuff. Got them one day barely a week ago, put on FB and gone the next...

    Giorgio Armani - Armani Code Absolu Gold 110ml (and a sample of My Way perfume)



    ----

    Sample of Acqua di Gio Profondo Lights - was tempted to buy a bottle, but went the sample route instead.

    And recently, I guess I forgot to add, I ordered a few decants/samples of Acqua di Parma III, IV, and V. I had blind bought bottles of I and II before and that didn't work out... so let's do it this way instead, lol.

    Xerjoff - Decas 100ml

    Following the lead of Warren, I went with a bottle of L'Artisan Parfumeur - Dzing! 100ml.
    This would also be a guilty pleasure of mine as well, it's just such a fun and interesting scent!

    Byredo - Pulp 100ml

    Owned this back in 2016/2017, but I've had a sample again for like a year and I keep going back to it. The opening is intriguing, but then when it settles a bit... yummy! Might be great for humid Texas weather too.

    Cool! I've always seemed to overlook this brand for some reason. I've tried Black Saffron before and enjoyed it. I'll try Pulp next time im in Neiman Marcus if I can remember it.

    You must! lol. It seems to be discontinued or something. It's like... a petting zoo smell, but in a good way! Very cool.

    I like their bottle aesthetic a lot! A kind of minimalism that's up my alley. For whatever reason this sample of Pulp I'm wearing right now is maybe the best 'wearing' I've ever had from Pulp. Just really nice.


    Edit - Oh crap, it's August! My bad.
