  1. Such a great list!
    At the top of my list are the small size Tauerville Flash scents–Vanilla and Amber 10ml for 31.00 US
    And those Atelier minis at Sephora, they call to me

    I did not know Malle did single 10mls! This is a great thing to learn 😀
    Should check out Fragonard more, they have some nice stuff.

    And Cire Trudon candles have always intrigued me but the big ones in glass jars are so expensive–nice to know there are gateway candles too!
    In general, bath&body seems to be a great way to get into niche, even for non-fragonerds
