Will you be buying any fragrances for S/S 2008?
Doesn't necessarily have to be new releases, but do you have any that you want to buy now that the seasons are changing?

I may be getting:

L'Artisan La Chasse Aux Papillons extreme
Frederic Malle Lys Mediteranee
Lanvin Rumeur


I will most likely only end up with one new one, lol

After liking the print campaign, after coveting the bottle, after seeing the commercial, after even getting to talk to David Lynch in person about the making of the damn ad, the new Gucci perfume finally makes it to my city... only for it to smell like dry powder on me, and not the sensual experience promised by the description. Curse my chemistry.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs, I'm going to go back and give that a second look, because I can't get it out of my memory, even though it's not the type of scent that I'd usually opt to wear.

Yeah it does, I tried it on today....

But it's SO overpriced, I really don't want to buy it from the stores here! 85$ + tons of tax... so that'd be like close to 100$

Whereas it's 42$ on Sephora.com

^ Haven't heard of Pure Coffee ... do I take it it smells like ... coffee? :p

I'm planning to stick with what I've got--fresh Hesperides. I find shopping for fragrance excruciating because there are so many bad ones

i'm another one who'll go for the cK One Summer. especially if the store at my work offers it for damn cheap. (i can buy cosmetics and frags at below Duty Free prices at my workplace)

else than that:

Clinique Happy for Men

Creed Virgin Island Water

Escada Moon Sparkle for men does NOTHING for me.....

does anyone own several cK One Summer editions? from what i can remember, all of them smell the same in the basenotes, no?

oh, and maybe Tommy Summer 2008, if it the descriptions keep their promise and smell like coconut. (i grew to LOVE the smell of coconut milk)
