I have a sample, but not a bottle. I can't remember, are you a fan of that one?

Pre-shower: Santal Majuscule
SOTD: Eau Rose by Diptyque. (Diptyque is hard to type.)

Today Tom Ford Tobacco Oud... I still like it. Probably only decant worthy and it's better than many of his more recent releases. Anyone compare this to Volutes and have an opinion?

pre-shower:  Slumberhouse Mare

SOTD: Oriza L.LeGrand Chypre Mousse

both excellent Spring scents

Speakeasy today.

Found some interesting stuff at the market today; a bottle of Jardin Sur le Nil with just a little bit left, Hiris moisturiser, and sample of Dahlia Noir and Bottega Veneta EDP.

That's a nice little haul you made there, CD!

 

Wearing Jardin du Nil this morning, as my pre shower scent. A dry geranium-rose combo.

Yeah, it was a good one and actually the 50 mL bottles are relatively inexpensive on ebay.

Musc Intense by Parfums de Nicolai. I'm a big fan of this.

Un Jardin Sur le Nil today. Might as well use up my market find. Smells great; no great deterioration that I can detect.

^^ You find the best deals. What kind of market has used perfumes? Are these flea markets or estate sales or something like that?

SOTE is Elixir des Merveilles gives me a feeling of "special."
post #18928 of 19956
The ones I post here I generally find at a big flea market, or at antique shops. Occasionally I'll find something nice at an op shop (or thrift shop in USian).

I left out the best find, because I didn't think you guys would know it. I found a full 50ml bottle of Prue Acton If EDP, in box. I did some research about this yesterday, and found this comment on Fragrantica:

In the 60s-70s Prue Acton was a leading Australian fashion designer. Between 1969-1976 she produced a line of fragrances manufactured in Melbourne. These are rare enough today to be considered museum pieces - the Museum of Victoria, for example, has several in its collection. I'd kill for a bottle of Prue Acton anything!

Have you tried it yet? I'd never heard of it.
