That non-blonde temptress, Gaia, wrote a review of Yohji Homme last week that resulted in an un-sniffed purchase within minutes of reading her post. I swore to myself that I wasn’t going to do this any more; luck runs out at some point, and I’ve been very lucky in this department up ’till now.
Here’s what happened. She wrote a great review, hitting all my Lemming inducing buttons at once. Then she tells us that it’s discontinued, and a little research tells me that un-opened bottles of this stuff go for a small fortune (or large fortune, on my income). I hop over to eBay, just to have a look, and what do I find? A 15mL bottle in a box set with a 50mL shampoo… for $25. “Buy it now!” the listing demanded, and I did. I do realize that eight such “steals” is equal to one gigantic bottle of Bois des Iles, but let me tell you, this one was too enticing to pass up. I’ll report back with results. 🙂
