You've all been keeping track, right? Because it's that time again. Donatella Versace, Our Lady of Scented Extravagance,1 wants to know what you bought in the 4th quarter (October, November and December) of 2009.
Update: the poll is now closed, thanks to everyone who voted!
My purchases? Drum roll please...
Nary a one. Early in the quarter I had some plans, but then I got busy, and by the time the 1st of December rolled around I kind of liked the feeling of having bought nothing. So I stuck with it. My total for the year is still what it was at the end of the 3rd quarter: 7 bottles, $465. It's less than I spent in 2008 (when I bought 11 bottles for $787), but more than I spent in 2007 (7 bottles, $255).
1. Why does Donatella host (against her will, mind you) the damage polls? There is no real reason other than the picture of her perfume collection, which shows that she indulges regularly at the perfume counter. The image, by the way, is originally from Allure magazine and appears here courtesy of Blogdorf Goodman.
I'd kind of like to find another visual for the 2010 damage polls. If anyone has a fabulous picture of their out-of-control perfume collection over at flickr, please let me know!
