Adiós, 2018, don't let the door hit you on the way out! Let's start off 2019 with a clean slate and a clean conscience — Donatella Versace, Our Lady of Scented Excess,1 wants to know what you bought in the 4th quarter (October, November and December) of 2018.
...I spent $185 on a 30 ml bottle of Aftelier Candide. (I also bought a replacement bottle of Ancient Resins, but Donatella does not care about that.) Then I bought a 30 ml bottle of Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Banane at 20% off, $30. Added to the $297 I spent in the first and second quarters (I sat out the third), that brings my total for the year to $512.
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.
