I haven't gotten any gifts from anyone else this year in the way of perfume, however, I have gone a little nuts on myself over the course of an amber/ambergris hunt and so I don't feel the least bit neglected. These were waiting for me after I returned from a mission trip to Mexico: Lorenzo Villoresi Ambra, Madhat Scents Amber Tar, 20ml decant of PR Fiore d'Ambra and an older SL Ambre Sultan. I feel all warm and gooey and covered in Amber. Oh, and I may have just placed an order for the Aroma M Geisha Noire Oil and EdP set!!!

I've been on a bit of a fun cheapy gourmandish bend lately. Gifted myself Tokyo Milk's Bittersweet and Honey and the Moon. Also Outremer's Vanilla, Hanai Mori Butterfly (so many love this on fragrantica, we'll see!), and large samples of L'Instant de Guerlain and Aqua Allegoria Lys Soleia.

Hi Ann- Wish I could just sit and sniff all the lovelies described here. I am still trying to learn the lesson of SAMPLE before FB. I gifted myself (unsampled) Fille en aiguilles by Uncle Serge---sure I would love it. Wrong. Sigh. It will smell nice on my college age son. Love your posts Ann and the comments. Happy New Year to all you fellow extra-neuroned noses.

I didn't receive any perfume gifts from anyone. The last time that I had gotten a bottle of perfume as a gift was probably 5 or 6 years ago. I did manage to get myself a vintage EDC of Miss Dior. For $35 (including shipping), it was sealed and the seller even threw in the vintage sprayer. It was a fabulous deal in my book. But I have to make a resolution. It's finish up a couple bottles at least before I can go and buy another full bottle of anything. My teeth are getting fixed up and it's going to cost a pretty penny.

I love the idea of keeping the holidays going with ambient scent. An exquisite candle seems particularly apt for this season of longer, darker, colder. Sonoma Scent Studio"s Forest Walk, Winter Woods, and Ying Ylang gleam like 3 jewels on my dresser, with SSS Cocoa Sandalwood in the bath for my man. I am rich, and redolent.

My DH gifted me an FB of Chanel 1932, which I've wanted since the minute it came out, and my son will be sending me some PdN Amber Cashmere Intense, so I feel very blessed this holiday season!

Hi Ann, Don't you just love it when someone hands you money like that? It makes it easier to splurge where you normally wouldn't. I got a bonus from work that felt like that. I bought myself the Amouage 12-piece women's sampler and the Byredo Bal D'Afrique shower gel from Luckyscent. And 2 Chanel lipsticks. I love gifting myself because I always get exactly what I want (and it's even better when I get to shop with free money).

Got myself the amazingly gorgeous Fumee D'Or from DSH Perfumes

Hey Ann, No fragrant gifts but I did grab myself a 1988 7.5ml Mitsouko parfum and an old Caron 60ml Infini PdT They are both ridiculously, heartbreakingly, fabulous and I'm chuffed. Portia xxx

A little bottle of Eau de l'Hiver and a half off jar of Chinatown.

I got myself a bottle of MDCI Les Indes Gallantes (sp?), when Luckyscent was running their Christmas gift with purchase promo (still plenty of gwp's there...just sayin') I intended to purchase Cio Cio San, but at the last minute changed my mind, and made a blind buy. I am not sorry! Les Indes is a rich dessert and perfect for the cooler weather. I love it! Hope your holidays were all wonderful and wish everyone a wonderful, blessed New Year filled with love!

I found a little bottle of Nirvana Black perfume oil in my Christmas stocking. :) Other than that, I've been really good at resisting perfume temptation. Now that our weather is finally getting cold I can wear some favorite winter scents that have been forlorn and neglected during our crazy warm December.

I got myself some stuff from Smell Bent. I finally caved and bought a bottle of Werewolf Lumberjack Reclining on a Bearskin Rug and also a set of samples.

Hi Ann, I got myself a vintage Shiseido Feminite du Bois on ebay for Christmas. I don't think it can get any better than that!

FB of Tom Ford Tobacco Oud & Noir pour femme. Because I think I deserve them!
