A continuation from Grant's 2022 thread:

Please feel free to talk about what you bought today, (or are waiting for in the mail)

Try and refrain from just naming the perfume or posting a picture - maybe tell us something about why your bought it? Was it a bargain? Is it a blind buy or just a re-purchase of an old fragrance.

I've wanted Christian Dior Eau Noire for a long time and had the opportunity to buy it in Paris this past summer, but I couldn't justify a 250ml bottle since Eau Noire isn't the easiest wear and I already have so much perfume. I was also hoping the re-release would be available in smaller bottles in the States. Luckily, the 40ml bottle has been for sale on the Dior website, and I grabbed one for myself today.

One of the better picks from Dior's Privee collection. Enjoy

Oldie but Goldie, well not that old actually... I've just bought Beautiful by Estée Lauder. It's a blind buy based on appreciations by a favourite critic of mine, so fingers crossed. I do like Estée Lauder's oldies anyway: Knowing, Cinnabar...

Also bought Cassis Frénésie from Roger&Gallet, 100 ml, so fresh and intriguing for a Cologne (well, it's called Cologne extrait, whatever that is supposed to mean).

Had a very belated Secret Santa last night and was surprised to have received a gift set of a full size bottle of Azzaro The Most Wanted EDP Intense, a travel size of the same frag, and another travel size of The Most Wanted Parfum.

My bro-in-law must have blown way beyond the spending limit on our annual family gift exchange but I'm not complaining!

Tried to buy Cherry Smoke... My first venture into Tom Ford for many years.
The local stockist sold out in like 24 hours!! apparently there is still room to raise prices. Rolled the dice and placed a blind order online.
Hope the "influencers" were honest in their reviews.
I’m curious about this one. I’m not a Tom Ford fan generally, and Lost Cherry smells like cough syrup to me, but I need to try Cherry Smoke. Do let us know your thoughts when it arrives!
