Howdy, Posse folks! Thanks for all your kind words and thoughts last week; I have bounced back and am once again rarin’ to go! So let’s call this what’s new Monday. I made a trip to the big city today to meet a friend for dinner, and on the way, I poked around a bit at the perfume counters. Didn’t get over to Saks Fifth Avenue but did stop by Nordstrom: not much new there that I could see. However, at Neiman Marcus I did spy what looked like the whole Roja Dove line, and also two new ones from the Aerin Lauder line: Tuberose du Jour and Tuberose de Nuit (might have gotten those names a little messed up, but you get the idea). And just around the corner from that was the (new to me) Yves Saint Laurent Vestiaire line, which looked intriguing.
Alas, I had already been over to the Byredo counter and was wearing Mojave Ghost and Belle de Tangier, the NM exclusive, plus a little something else, so I had no real estate to try anything else But next time for sure.
Speaking of what’s new, I’m a little surprised that our Neiman’s has the Roja Dove line in (mercy, but there are a lot of bottles in that line!), but not the Frederic Malle collection. Perhaps there’s some kind of an exclusivity clause within certain territories or something else retail-oriented. There’s a post in there somewhere on why which stores get what lines and for how long, and what hoops a store has to jump through to carry a line.
Anyhoo, so what’s new with you guys? And what new scent have you sampled lately or are wanting to try?
