    Default Odd 1 oz niche I spotted at TJ Maxx yesterday

    I was looking around Marshall's the other day (not that I can really afford to buy anything right now), and as usual, they didn't have anything new in the frags. A little Bulgari, the usual Quorum, Diesel Green, Liz Taylor Passion, some Claiborne yada, yada, yada.

    Then I start digging around some of the lower shelves because I've found some gems like Body Kouros and Guerlain Vetiver there.

    I see a familiar looking fragrance wrapped in that chintzy gold on the bottom shelf, and I'm like WTF!!!

    It was no other than Millésime Impérial. Some other shopper already unwrapped it and left it there apparently. The juice seemed to be good (I tried it at BlueMercury). It is pretty similar to SMW to me, and at the price $34.95, I couldn't resist. I was lucky enough that they had a couple of boxes hidden on the bottom shelf. So I grabbed two (knowing I can get a good trade out of this of course!), and checked out.

    Anyhow, just figured I should let you guys know if you have a TJ Maxx near you. Marshalls usually carries some of the same stuff. Who knows what other Creed they have. I guess one of the big boys really wanted to get rid of the stock, or it could just be old stock. One of the risks carrying/buying Creed of course. In any event, hopefully you haven't gotten in your car and driven to your local discounter, as this is an April Fools joke. <Evil laughter echoes through the universe>

    Hi K,

    LOL, good one! At first I thought it possible that perhaps a NICHE fragrance might of slip through as I have found (well, sort of Niche) Floris in the past at TJ MAX. However, when I saw you had said CREED, I knew it was a joke. Nevertheless, I had a good laugh seeing others reactions. Funny thing is, I thought about pulling the same joke! I'm glad you did.

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    Believe it or not, there was a time I did find a niche there: I got two bottles of Acqua Classica - Borsari Parma 1.7 oz for about $10 each a couple years back. It is selling for a ridiculous price at Caswell Massey the last time I checked.

    Anyhow, one bottle has since lost a lot of its fruity + leathery topnotes and now all I'm left with is basically oakmoss. I gave another bottle to one of my BN friends (I'll have to warn him about this). When I first tried Eau de Marvellies, I thought, jeez this is like Acqua Classica. When I went home, I foudn my bottle went bad on me!
