Round 3 - what'd everyone find?!
Round 3 - what'd everyone find?!
I pulled some vintage (see box photo in “Reviews” section), 30ml Quorums at TJ Maxx. I was surprised to see these as I’ve only previously seen the newer, reformulated versions there. If you want to understand the love for Quorum, smell the original!
A lot of Guerlains recently.
Got Paloma Picasso and Halston Z-14, good deal for 35.00 at marshalls
I can confirm Vetiver
Vetiver and Shalimar at my TJMaxx
Shalimar (Edc) and Samsara, also First by VCA
Recently someone mentioned that WalMart has Nautica Voyage 3.4 oz for $15. Has anyone else seen that?
Needless to say.. there's lots of gift sets available all over, including CVS. I saw a 5 piece (1.8 oz bottles, I believe) for 10 bucks. It came with Bod Black, Bod $$$, Bod 24k, Bod Fresh Blue Musk, and Mod Really Ripped Abs, I think. They also had a set of all the Tommy Bahama's in the .5 oz (except Very Cool) for 19.99. 3 pack of .5 oz bottles for 19.99 included Nautica original and Blue and Nautica Voyage. Bod Man fragrance sets like Body Heat Sexy x2 and Really Ripped Abs on Steroids and King for 14.99, all bottles were under 1oz.
Picked up a 1.7oz Versace Pour Homme at TJMaxx for $25
I got the 1.6 oz Rochas Man for $19.99 at Marshalls. Perhaps that's not new, but I was happy to get it. I also saw Euphoria Intense at TJ Maxx, which I had never seen there before, but the price was $39.99, which I thought was too expensive. Other than that, just the usual stuff.
Waiting for Bvlgari Man to show up after the holidays.
In the last few weeks I picked up:
Hanae Mori HM EDP & EDT- Ross
Bulgari Black - Ross
L'eau Di'issey - Ross
Michael Kors for Men - Burlington Coat Factory
Burberry London 2008 special edition - Ross
Dirty English - TJ Maxx
Giorgio Beverly Hills - TJ Maxx
Salvatore Ferragamo - Ross
Rochas Man - TJ Maxx
Marshalls - Cartier Declaration - I think 1.7 oz for $30 or $40. Not a great deal.
Vera Wang Men
Givenchy Intense Ultramarine (great aquatic scent btw)
Givenchy Xeryus Rouge (picked up a bottle for 40)
Bvlgari PH Extreme 1.7 20$ (picked up a bottle)
Herrera for Men 20$ (thought about buying it)
ST Dupont (smells like cartier declaration to me)
Perfumania right now has a buy two get one free on about 80% of their frags. So you buy two $60 100ml frags, get one $60 100ml free....that comes to about $40 per 100ml bottle. Not too shabby when it covers a ton of popular designers and frags that don't ever wind up at discounters.
Fleurs D'orlane (women's) 3.3 oz for $13.
I've been buying a lot of women's frags for myself recently, but this one looks completely feminine so I did not bother.
I saw 3.4oz bottle of Hugo Elements Aqua for $30. The box was already opened so i sniffed the cap. Smelled really good for an aquatic. I may pick it up this weekend.
That Nautica deal is available online from walmart.
Nautica Original, Voyage, or Blue, all 3.4 oz, $14.
Good deal. Available only online, I think.
You have to search thru - they still have their old price on some Nautica items. Skip those, look for the $14 deal.
50ml of Burberry London for $29 at Ross
cartier declaration for 40 bucks! i was like wow!! and also picked up the womens Contradiction from CK ! vey unisex if you ask me
Bought Lolita Lempicka Au Masculine $25 at TJMaxx. Went to Filene's Basement last week for the first time...their selection is pretty good, but their prices aren't really 'discounted' too much. $5 off retail isn't much of a deal
I bought a 1.7 oz bottle of Rochas Man for $19.99 at TJ Maxx. It seems like a slightly toned down Animale Animale, but with a coffee note added. I really like it!
I bought Givenchy Very Irresistible and Paco Rabanne PH for half-off at Kohl's. They had a few at 50% off.
Spotted Kouros $30/50ml & Habit rouge $50/100ml edt.
1 oz Pi - 19.99 TJM
3.3 oz Xeryus Rouge - 39.99 TJM (would have bought it if it were 10 bucks less)
3.4 oz R.S.V.P - 24.99 TJM
1 oz Herrera - 19.99 TJM
1 oz Lanvin Sport - 14.99 TJM
1.6 oz Dunhill Pursuit - 19.99/2.5 oz 24.99 TJM
1.7 oz True Religion 24 or 29.99 not sure TJM
3.4 Lolita Lempicka 29.99 TJM (10 bucks lower than Marshall's)
Went into Ross, and it was a fluke..
1.7 ox True Religion @ Ross for 20.99 so I scooped it up.. Kind of a blind buy.. I sampled it once in the past, but remembered it to me more of a citrus frag, it's quite a leather scent, but very very modern. As reviewers complain, the longevity isn't exactly the best, and the projection is odd, it's there but it's like periodically aromatic. I really love the smell though, it's an outstanding leather. The bottle is a beaut too.
And, although it's not the fragrance for this time of year, something I've been looking for in this size bottle for a while.. Nautica Oceans 1.7 oz for 12.99! That's rock bottom there. As for this fragrance, it's a long the lines of Sunset Voyage, Voyage, IZOD, and Set Sail St Barts, considerably a tropical fragrance, but this one really hits the spot. One of Nautica's best in recent years for sure. Ross also has a ton of odds and ends there in their frags case; TJM had a lot of new stuff, FINALLY.. Gonna check out Marshall's tomorrow perhaps, as I'm looking diligently for Artisan and Vintage.
Walmart.com has 4 Burberry bottles for $25 clearance. The only one for men is Brit. However, it doesn't say the size and the pic is wrong.
3 Creeds at TJ Maxx: Original Vetiver, Royal Water, Silver Mountain Water - at least in the european stores - came across them first hand in one of their London stores (available also online, check for prices). Should just be a matter of time until they are in the US as well - then again they are still not worth what they are being charged for in my opinion but that's up for everyone to decide individually.
amid a throng of rubbish at the Amherst, Massachusetts TJMaxx (the perfumes, I mean, not the bratty students), three bottles of Shalimar EdC, $49.99 each.
The Las Vegas Marshalls had a humongus selection. Disappointingly, not one of the 400 or 500 bottles interested me.
Lanvin Arpege blind buy at Maxx, very pleased.
Burberry Sport for Men @ Marshall's
I could've gone completely nuts @ Marshall's today, but I calmed myself down before I did too much damage. I got:
JPG Madame - $39.99
Clean Shower Fresh for Men - $14 (for the 4oz'er!!)
Lolita Lempicka au Masculine
CK One gift set
I never find much when I go to these stores...
I didn't pick it up, but I saw Shalimar Eau de Cologne for $49.99.
At TJ Maxx:
4.2 oz Michael Kors for Men - $49.99
4.2 oz Guerlain Vetiver - $49.99
3.4 oz Lolita Lempicka au Masculin - $29.99
1.7 oz Rochas Man - $19.99 (I bought two)
3.4 oz Fujiyama Homme - $9.99
1.7 oz Hanae Mori edt - $19.99
At the Las Vegas TJ Maxx, I finally saw, for the first time in any of these discounters, that Rochas Man was actually on the Man's shelf!

Shalimar - 1 oz - 39.99
Kouros - 1 oz - 29.99
