I called three different Barneys and Vegas was the one that had it. I got bounced from counter person to counter person until they gave me to a Serge Lutens business manager that said she had 3 left and said she wasn't sure if they'd be able to get more since it was supposed to be exclusive to the Paris store. Thanks for the heads up!

Update on that... I'm clearly a product of "gratification now." I had them hold it til I got paid just to make myself feel better about buying it when a bottle of By Kilian was on the horizon. 3 minutes off the phone and I changed my mind to put it on a CC. The Lutens vendor had left for the day right after we got off the phone (5pm in Vegas) so I spoke with another woman in the department. She was incredibly helpful and when I asked her if she had the same access to the Lutens samples as the vendor did, she said "Sweetie, I'm going to take care of you. Don't you worry." She said she'd put a few of her favorites on men as well as ask some people in the department their thoughts. On top of that, she said she'd toss in some facial and shaving products.
Stay tuned on how it turns out when it arrives, but so far I couldn't be more impressed with Barneys individual store service. If everything is super, I'll post here and you can PM me for her info for great service and (hopefully) great sample extras.
(and btw.. she said different Barneys have different exclusives. I asked about MKK and she said that store didn't have it but others very well might have a couple)
