2019 is over, and not a moment too soon. Donatella Versace, Our Lady of Perfumed Plenty,1 wants to help you start the new year with a clean slate and a clean conscience. Do confess what you bought in the 4th quarter (October, November and December) of 2019, you'll feel better.
I had big plans, but only managed to buy one fragrance, a travel spray of Aedes de Venustas Oeillet Bengale for $40. Added to the $145 I'd already spent, that brings my total for the year to $185.
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.
