October! That means it's time for Donatella, Our Lady of Scented Excess,1 to hear the confessions of her flock. Donatella wants to know what you bought in the 3rd quarter (July, August and September) of 2016. Update: the poll is now closed!
Not a thing! (Ok, I did pick up a shower gel or two, but they don't count.) That leaves my total for the year the same as last time, $273.
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.
