EauPEN Thread – Holiday Gifts

Chanel No. 5 1971
Did you receive any smelly things/perfume as gifts over the holidays? If so, what? If not, is there anything you want to treat yourself to?
I didn’t really get any perfume but I did get two perfume-y items from my Vintage Beauty Gift Guide. Apparently David read that post and gave me the Chanel No. 5 Fragments d’Or and Malle Iris Hand Cream.

EauMG’s Fall 2014 Fragrance Wants

I’ve decided to write down which perfumes I would like for autumn and here they are:

fall wants 2014

Roxana Illuminated Perfumes Fig. 1 Noir – It’s a dark, deep patchouli. A patchouli for hardcore patchouli addicts. A patchouli that intimidates all the other patchoulis. Full review.

Cartier La Panthère – I admit that I want this for the bottle. It also helps that I like how it smells. The only reason that I haven’t purchased it yet is that I’m holding out for the parfum…but I may… Continue reading | 17 Comments
