October already! And you know what that means: Donatella, Our Lady of Creative Perfume Math,1 is wondering just how many bottles you might have acquired in the 3rd quarter (July, August and September) of 2017. Confession is good for the soul, folks!
...none. I spent nothing, again. Nothing added to my first and second quarter total = $34.*
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.
* Note that I did buy a small bottle of Twilly d'Hermès, but I didn't like it and I gave it away. Gifts don't count!
