I agree completely about local pricing. I hadn't seen 68 on the Guerlain counters in Myers or DJs lately - I must go for another sniff. Although, I have bought quite a bit lately (the exchange is far too tempting).
I got to Mecca Cosmetica yesterday and discovered the confusion - they have a pile of Frederic Malle SAMPLES! Not the actual bottles - the idea is that we use the samples to test then they order in a bottle from interstate. Unfortunately, the ones I wanted to try were EMPTY and they said "oh we should get some more soon - come back next week" which kinda made me roll my eyes. I did get a good SA for the Serge Lutens and she recommended one to me that I liked so it wasn't all bad! xD
So yeah - you need to ask - while they have no Carnal Flower, Musc Ravageur or Parfum de Therese left, they did have a few others that I didn't bother to check at the time. I might go back and check those sometime though.
So! Good Luck if you go back and have a look yourself.

Oh - weird - I rang and they said they had some.
Maybe they used to ...
I'll ring again. xD
Actually all I'm really interested in is Frederic Malle and they seem to have a few of those! A few SL wouild be good too but a bonus. So yeah I'm still excited.
Thanks for the good cheer~! I'm off to an old folks party now. Ahhh now I can put my feet up. xD
I knew Mecca existed but presumed there wouldn't be on in little old Adelaide.
Dr_Rudi corrected me on that little presumtion just recently and I've yet to get down to Burnside to check it out but I can't WAIT to do so in the new year! Thanks for the heads up anyway!
Merry Christmas OMG - I hope you're having fun overseas - and that your New Years goes off like a rocket!
Awesome bottle! Reminds me of the Tocade bottles.
Thanks for the link.
Lol yeah I figured. X)
Does SEAsia have any good perfumes of their own or do they mostly stock what we already know of?
My choices put you off eh? :P
