The topic is what have you bought recently - can it be expanded to include what made you buy it? Do you have a buying strategy Olga?
, in my case, it would be greed most of the time!
But on a serious note, even though to some it looks I like buy everything that is not nailed down on Ebay, I do have my rules in perfume buying that I follow.
First and foremost, I have strict price brackets: I'll be damned if I spend more than $90 on a full bottle, no matter what it is...it just doesn't make sense to me. So far, it has worked for me, and by being patient I got everything I wanted (including quite a few niche) and more for the prices I wanted.
Another strategy ( a crazy one)....I never buy minis or samples and stick to the largest bottles possible. I only broke down a few days ago and ordered a few Micallef minis, only because I have not much room left for FBs.
I do have a wish list, but by now most of it is non-essential...I already have everything I want,and most likely all the new stuff will be a smell-alike, but some of the perfumes from my wish list are for collecting purposes mostly.
The way I keep getting in trouble with all these unexpected bargains is I start looking for something specific, then start checking what else the seller has to offer....and before I know I can't resist the other deals of a life time.
My last but not the least strategy: always keep my Bidnapper membership....helps me zap most of the deals last minute for lower prices
