    Re: Frederic Malle NYC store

    Thanks for the heads up on the home fragrance. The rubber diffusers look cool (but so expensive).

    Frederic Malle NYC store

    Being a fan of Malle, I was happy to see signs for a new boutique on 72nd and Madison. It makes up for the closing of the L'Artisan store a couple of blocks away.
  3. Re: The Different Company awesome sale at Neiman Marcis

    Yes! There idea of travel is a dark one if it requires a steel canister to protect your frag. I picked up the SdV. They have a good selection that complements Barneys (they barely overlap).
  4. Re: The Different Company awesome sale at Neiman Marcis

    They now have most of the line on sale at Takashimaya, including SdV, in various sizes. Depending on the frag, some are the 10ml or 50ml travel size, others in the 200ml bottle. Strangely, the 10ml...

    Re: Alternative for Guerlain Vetiver

    I find V.E. very similar but more modern/lighter than Guerlain Vetiver. I agree that EN is similar to Sycomore in it's smokiness.

    Re: Blind buy. Just couldn't help myself.

    I may be in the minority, but I don't find EN and VE very similar. I got EN under the belief that it was a cheaper version of VE. I find EN darker, smokier and with a tang that reminds me of Timbuktu...

    It looks like you can order from Japan. Does anyone have experience ordering internationally? Do you have to pay any extra taxes, duties, etc?

    Re: S-Perfume Appreciation Thread

    That's funny. After thinking about it for months I decided to get S-ex yesterday. Then I saw they don't carry it anymore. Too bad. I wonder if there is anything similar to it.

    I wonder if Declaration would fit what you're looking for. I ended up going with Declaration Essence. The only problem is that it might be a little on the "spicy" side.
