It’s October, and Donatella, Our Lady of Fragranced Forgiveness,1 having completed the 20th anniversary celebrations of The Dress, is turning her attention to the spiritual needs of her flock. She is wondering just how many bottles you might have acquired in the 3rd quarter (July, August and September) of 2019. You'll feel better after you tell all.
It was a busy quarter for me, but not perfume-wise. I bought nothing. I mean to do better! I am planning! But so far, I've only spent $145 this year.
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.
