A gargantuan thank you to SMM for such a wonderfully tasty idea!!! From different thread posts and salivating over the wardrobes of my fellow brethren, I believe that I've been ordained from a higher power to quarterback this most precious of journeys. Here in the heart of the "phallus" state we don't have our share of "boutique" or "niche" fragrance house retailers, but we do have the mecca of "I just have too much money and I don't know what to do with it" mall in Tampa a.k.a. "The International Mall" with a Neiman Marcus, a Saks, and a Nordstroms (sp?) After dousing ourselves in enough juice and packing enough samples to last a lifetime we could always continue the hedonistic frivolity at one of the "too cool for school" watering holes in the mall and bury the gentry in our collective aura.... I am totally open to suggestion, but I believe that this is something we have all been craving needing wanting... let's do it!
I'm in. I'm about 2 1/2 hours north of Tampa and have been wanting to go to the International Mall (I usually do Orlando) for quite some time. Is the Saks in the mall or is it across the highway?
it's in the mall along with the nordstroms... we can eat at one of my restaurants in the middle of the day to give our noses a break... it's going to be a blast!!!
I'll be there, but I don't know if I can behave in the proper manner I'll even bring some special props.
Hey why not - I'm sure I can venture over there for a day.
Some stores that have fragrances at International Plaza are Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Dillards, L'Occitane, Aveda, The Body Shop, Zara, Bath & Body Works, Burberry, Tiffany and Gucci. There really is not a lot of niche - Neimans carries Creed and Dillards has Bois 1920.
Less then a mile down the street is Westshore Plaza. Some fragrance stores there are Saks and Macys. Saks carries Bond and Jo Malone.
Hi, there! I'm new and, of course, just missed this bus. Did you all go to IP? Pls post a report so I may enjoy vicariously! I was pleased w/the recently increased 'European' frag spread at Dillards...what did you think? thanks and hope to get sniffing with you soon!
