Guerlain at full retail, hoping for an experience

I decided to buy Habit Rouge. I decided to go to the Guerlain boutique at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. It seems to function as the main Guerlain shop here. Jicky and some others are only available at this shop. So I thought if I went there, I could try Jicky and also had some hopes for some kind of freebie. Looking around in the hotel, I couldn't see anything Guerlain, so I went to the newer tower next door. There, a receptionist told me Guerlain was on the fourth floor. This turned out to be the spa, but I asked for men's frag, and they were very helpful. I shelled out about $100 for the HR!! Then I said, Can I try some Jicky? The SA said, Oh, that is in the main shop. Finally I found out where the main shop was. The SA there was very friendly, and in addition to Jicky, I also tried L'Heure Bleue. I took a spray of Jicky on my hand, worrying about whether people would be annoyed as I rode the train home. I also asked about SDV, but she said they were waiting for an order. There were lots of other things I wanted to try, but I was running out of skin, and I was getting fragrance fatigue (I am interested in Iris Genache, several of the Aqua Allegorias etc.) Well, at least I got my beloved HR in a very nice Guerlain box and bag. However, my freebie was cleansing milk! I can't help but wonder whether buying the HR in the main shop instead of the spa might have gotten me a frag sample instead of a cleanser.
