Time for another damage poll — and I know you've all been waiting anxiously to confess your sins! Donatella Versace, Our Lady of Scented Overindulgence,1 wants to know what you bought in the 3rd quarter (July, August and September) of 2011.
Update: the poll is now closed!
I was about to say I bought nothing — memory can be kind — but then I checked my notes. Ah yes, I bought one bottle (Honoré des Prés I Love Les Carottes, happily marked down to $24.50) and two decants (Serge Lutens Vitriol d’Oeillet, which it turns out I could live without, and The Different Company De Bachmakov, which I already knew I loved; $30 for the both of them). That brings my quarterly expenditure to about $55, and my yearly expenditure (so far!) to $194. I can live with that.
As always, report your purchases in the comments if you dare! And as always, we don't include samples or gifts, and you can count miniatures, decants and bottle-splits howsoever you like (I usually count them as half bottles). Samples don't generally count at all, even though some of us spend considerable sums obtaining them.
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.
