    Oh, I see, you were coming from ... certainly an onion frag is quite a challenge...

    It is said that the name "Chicago" is derived from a French translation of the Native American word shikaakwa. Roughly translated as "wild onion" or "wild garlic," from the Miami-Illinois language. With that being said, how would you construct a fragrance around an onion or garlic note? Perhaps a smoky, onion-garlic, animalistic, incense fragrance? It sounds delicious.

    Flaconneur:

    indeed, it is not the only one that fails to honor the town. Paris as a tepid vanilla? Los Angeles a clean laundry musk? (ok, the latter perhaps an image of the shallow, look-oriented, hyperbotoxed look?)

    I just came back from Chicago - there could be many things, perhaps a big, meaty tuberose (slaughterhouse of the world), a quirky hay thing (the grain), and so on.

    Many Chicagoans I've spoken to about Baie Rose 26 are thoroughly depressed about this fragrance from Le Labo. Most feel that it isn't representative of the great spirit of this city and is a bit weak in character. I might have suggested to Le Labo that the city exclusive for Chicago might have been an incense and smoke fragrance. Yes, it's a bit literal and a narrative on the cities biggest historical disaster but fitting none the less. What would Le Labo call this fragrance, DeKoven 137 of course.

    Just bought my bottle of Poivre 23 today. Went to the Le Labo boutique in Manhattan and was in and out in less than 10 minutes. Sampled MANY of their blends while my bottle was being created and was blown away by a few including the Santal 33. Prices for the city exclusives are as follows...
    15 ml... $116. 50 ml... $290. 100 ml... $440. 500 ml...$1,400.

    I got the 50 ml bottle. Refills are discounted but I can't recall what the prices were.

    I have Rose 31, so I wonder if Baie Rose is any different?

    emcizzle:

    no blind-buy necessary, I saw them at Barney's Chicago, so I'm assuming they're available in SF as well. None seemed really bottle worthy for now. Gaiac is a very interesting dry-woody-incensy, with a strong peppery note.

    Poivre is my must-have!!

    Any must-haves?! I can't afford them all in the short amount of time they'll be around, but am super excited about getting a couple of them if I'm lucky. I'm just wondering what people recommend for a blind-buy of the city exclusives. Masculine or unisex.

    Good news indeed! I've tried quite a few of their normal range, but have been itching to test a few of their exclusives... Bring it on!
