And another year is gone. Confess your sins now, start 2014 with a clean slate! Donatella Versace, Our Lady of Scented Overindulgence,1 wants to know what you bought in the 4th quarter (October, November and December) of 2013.
Added to my first quarter damage and third quarter damage (I didn't buy anything in the second quarter), my grand total for the year is $137. That's by far the best I've done since I fell down the rabbit hole ten years ago (my first two bottles, both purchased in late 2003, were Parfums de Nicolaï Balle de Match and Diptyque Philosykos).
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.
