    Re: Les Parfums de Rosine @ Jardins du Palais Roya

    Hmm, I feel really dumb but I've never found the Rosine boutique at the Palais Royal. Any hints where it is in reference to Serge Lutens, or anything else? I've kept any eye out but never seen it....

    You can bring perfume on a plane (although not Flowerbomb, apparently!). As for mailing it, I have no practical experience, but I do know that perfume cannot be mailed as part of the gift deduction...

    Re: Les Salons du Palais Shiseido Paris

    Encens et Lavande is what I chose. I am in love with that scent. I also really like Bois de Violette, but that had to grow on me. Fumerie Turque is great too.

    Re: Your favourite Ellena scent

    I voted for the Hermessences, Eau d'Hiver and Divine Bergamot, but would also have voted for Bois Farine--one of my very faves! Haven't yet smelled Terre d'Hermes, sadly.

    If you're going to Sephora and Guerlain, one of Caron's boutiques is quite close at 90 rue Faubourg St. Honore. It is so worth the visit. I'm in love with that house.

    One way to find where niche fragrances are sold is to check the lines' websites if you're looking for something specific. So looking at L'Artisan, they are stocked by Beauty Mark at 33 Charles St....

    Re: What is it with Limited Editions?

    About limited editions, the packaging changes for Comme des Garcons 2 can be really cute. They were clearing it out of the Ciampino's duty-free shop, so I got a 50 ml. bottle for 28 euros. Not bad,...
