Calling all Boston and New England Basenoters
Let’s all meet-up on Saturday August 29th at 10AM in the atrium in front of Barney’s in the Copley Place Mall.
Once we are together we will go into Barney’s, Neiman Marcus, CO Bigelow, L’Occitane, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Sephora.
For those who still have energy and weather permitting we’ll finish our day down on Newbury St at Lush, Chanel, and Hermes.
After Hermes we can head down to Troquet and have some small bites and wines by the glass.
Anybody who thinks they want to come should PM Somerville Metro Man and I’ll keep track of everyone.
If you can’t make it at 10AM I’ll be available by cell phone and you can join us at any point during the day that works for you.
The point of this is to share our passion for perfume in a fun way together.
I look forward to seeing some of you for this.
I am very happy to report that I am able to attend, thanks to Comdivas' generosity. Our families are going to have a gigantic sleepover weekend.
I would love to join you folks and your expert noses for a marathon sniff session!
Boston Tentative Schedule, I am in the midst of working out all of the finer details but it looks like we might have some special guests and it looks like we might get some discounts from the various stores while we are there. I'll know more over the next two weeks.
If you're definitely coming and haven't PM'd me please do that so I can get a confirmed head count.
If you're thinking of coming and are still on the fence I'd like to know that, too. so go ahead an PM me and give me a likelihood of you joining us.
Right now I have nine confirmed people who are going to be there. The more the merrier.

To the Boston Group.
Just got off the phone with Christopher who runs the Guerlain Boutique at Sak's.
He told me that our group will be getting a 15% discount on Saturday while we're there.
He has been very helpful in the planning and this is just the cherry on the sundae.
As a new(ish) member of BaseNotes, I am hoping that, when another Boston Meetup comes around, I'll be able to join in! In the meantime, I would love to read any reports of how the Boston 2009 went, and what peoples' favorite experiences were. Thanks!
