Yes, I think my Neimans is similar to yours as far as the fragrance selection. What's odd is that they carry top end clothing in full departments such as Kiton, Brioni and Oxxford.

I looked online at niemans.com and it looks like I could use my gift card on the exclusives that are on the site if I wanted to. Problem is that I'd have to buy blind and none of them looked very appealing... other than one called moscau and again I'd prefer not to buy blind (especially at this price).

Awesome suggestions... thanks. I don't believe they stocked van cleef but will check next time I'm in. I'll also try out the others you mentioned.

- a great fresh wood scent. Also they have Hermes - Eau d' Hermes
, Gentian Blanche
, and Pamplemouse Rose
are all worthy of a look. If you do spring for a Creed I recomend you have them open the box and test the juice in the actual bottle you are wanting to purchase because the testers at Neiman's often are entirely different in formula than the more recent bottles that are on their inventory shelf. This tip came from my SA at Neiman's in Dallas - Andrew - a very sharp guy. Happy shopping!
