Well, well, darling Posse folks, I’m shaking my head once again. In my sporadic retail trips to the big city lately, I’m certainly stumbling across some interesting things. First, the case of the missing Guerlain counters, and now this. Today, as I scooted through Bloomingdale’s, what did I see on a counter, sharing space with those tall, cylindrical Montale bottles … Amouage!
Five or six of the women’s were displayed and that many of the men’s, which really had me doing a double-take. I can only remember Jubilation 25, Interlude, Honour, Epic and Lilac Love representing the ladies (didn’t see a tester for Gold, oddly enough), but I really could’t see the men’s bottles well enough to tell what they were. And frankly, the surrounding aisle was so crowded with shoppers that I didn’t want to venture picking each one up from its higher perch to look at it. Spilled and broken Amouage bottles would not have improved my day, ha!
I like Bloomingdale’s just fine (although I rarely seem to get over to that side of the mall), but truth be told, that chain was not where my mind went first when thinking what retailer– if any / ever– would carry Amouage. Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman’s, and Saks were likelier candidates in my mind, but hey, what do I know? It’ll be interesting to see where this goes from here. Guess I’ll need to visit Bloomie’s a little more often now, just to see what’s up.
So, what are your favorite Amouages? And what retail surprises have you experienced lately? I know in my big city over the weekend it was holiday shopping in high gear, like full-on December. Traffic was quite the bear, not only around the major malls, but even all over on the interstates. How about where you live?
