Hey there! Just sayin Hi. Hope you are well. Scratch Gizmo's ears for me
I had a great time in SF. We saw the Alonzo King Lines Ballet at Yerba Buena, and it was spectacualr. We had to rush dinner a bit to get to the show on time, but nothing drastic; our server kept things moving for us.
I sniffed lots of stuff, including the Houbigants at Neiman Marcus that I neglected to try during the meet-up, and some Frederic Malle scents I'd never seriously tried before. But I didn't buy anything this time around. I'm on the list to be notified when Fougere Royale arrives at NM, but I'm on the fence about buying. I did revisit Midnight in Paris and really liked its smoky/creamy vibe -- I think you'll do well with it especially in the colder months ahead. Favorite thing I smelled: Frederic Malle Une Fleur de Cassie. That one is a likely purchase for me in the near future.
I'll get in touch before my next SF visit if you'd be interested in meeting up.
Thanks for the birthday greetings! I hope you're well. Hi to Gizmo!!!
