Desperate Measures

I have run dangerously low on my cologne and need every person in the world who reads this blog to find me more. (Well, actually I just need one of you to help.) Apparently this particular kind is not sold in the US (or perhaps it's just not sold in the otherwise thriving Dallas-Fort Worth metropolis), which makes perfect sense because the only places I’ve ever bought it previously was in Japan and in Poland. It is Chanel’s Platinum Ēgoïste eau de toilette. It comes in 125 ml (4.2 fluid ounces) and—most importantly—is not a spray bottle.

I’ve been wearing this for the past nine years. This last bottle has lasted almost five years because I wear so little of it at one time. It delights me. Is there anyone out there who can help me get my hands on another bottle? Of course, I will pay for it as well as for shipping. Or perhaps there is something in the United States that I can send you in exchange. (Democracy? Freedom? Sure … just let me contact my president!) Send me an email at skajlab at hotmail if you’re willing and able to take on this mission. God speed.


  1. Ok, Macy's has it in spray only but I do have a $10.00 off coupon for Macy's on March 17. Or Billy got pently of Old Spice for Christmas if your REALLY in need.

  2. No, no, no ... I can't use a spray bottle. I only use a kiss of Chanel. A whisper. A spray bottle wouldn't last me a year--let alone five years!--and I'd end up smelling offensively drenched in stink (no names mentioned).

    I've heard of Posh Spice and Baby Spice. Is Old Spice the old one? Don't think I want to smell like an old Spice Girl either.... :) But if I get desperate enough I may give you a call.

  3. If only those folk "offensively drenched in stink" (I think this season's stink is "Cotton Blossom")we know (and some of us love) would/could understand the concept of a kiss of fragance, then maybe all of us could love them!?

    Nah, probably not.

    It's going to take a lot more than a kiss--unless it's a kiss from a magical princess who is able to give kisses of TOTAL transformation. But then I haven't seen too many of those around.

  4. I confess that I used your search for a non-spraying bottle as avoidance behavior (I have numerous papers due next week), but after spending at least 15 minutes at some Euro-Ebay site I have nothing to offer. I'm vexed, because I have yet to not find what I want online. Swine Chanel.

    I tried! What say I score you a bottle of vintage High Karate?
