    It might be worth a try to check with Murale first to make sure the news of discontinuing the line is correct. Good luck.

    I did! They only had two bottles left with a huge discount (and they don't have them anymore! ), but no Like This unfortunately. The nice SA confirmed they wouldn't sell them anymore, and she didn't know where else in Montréal I could find them... But a huge thanks to you for the tip!

    I used to think that I would never buy blind, but there you go, never say never!

    Anybody know where we can find a tester for Bulgari Black?? The Bay doesn't seem to have it for sale and most of the smaller shops don't have testers

    I've seen Black at many small shops, but few wanted to lend me a sniff. I seem to remember that the small perfume shop in the Eaton centre (mezzanine level, I think) had it and let me sniff.

    Thanks! I think the shop is Cosmic.

    You may want to try a place called Perfumerie Romance in the Atwater Metro station, it's right next to a watch store and some charming young ladies will take care of you. They're kind of across from Yellow shoes if I remember right.

    I've also been wanting to sample some Creeds and was wondering whether Holt Renfrew on Maisonneuve had any samples (of Creed or others) that they were willing to hand out if asked?
    I know they have testers but I don't like coming back every single time to retest the same fragrances over and over again so small sample vials might be simpler.

    Thanks!

    There are no Creed sample to be had, but you can spray from anything you want at the Holt counter. If you're extra-nice, the clerk may make you a vial, but look serious!

    I'm happy to modify this post with the news that the Frédéric Malles are now available at Holt Renfrew! They had about 15 of them today, but Le Parfum de Thérèse wasn't among them. The SA told me they'd probably get more later.

    Holt Renfrew also has By Kilian.

    Ogilvy now (?) has Juliette has a Gun and Frapin (they're right next to the Lutens).

    Wazoos, as Dan says, it's in Holt Renfrew. You have to go up to the boutique on the second floor and they have all Les Exclusifs. i love Sycomore. It has become my favourite vetiver. Once you try it, I would be very interested in hearing your impressions!

    I think they don't have them *all*? The last (and only) time I went there were no testers for La Pausa, No. 18, or Bel Respiro, unfortunately. Still, I was glad to smell the ones I could!

    They do have them all but they only have room for ten in the display and they hide the other three inside the cabinet. You have to ask for them.

    Thanks for the update, Martin! Your list is very useful!

    I'm not sure that La Baie sells the Goutals anymore. Did you see them recently? The SA told me last fall that they would only be sold at Ogilvy from now on.

    I remember seeing the Goutals at La Baie before, but I am not sure if they still have them. I think that the Bond No 9 line may be took their place...
    But I know for sure that the Goutals are still at Ogilvy.

    Also, the Ogilvy Goutal rep said a new Fragrance is coming to town next month, Nuit Étoilée.

    Went to the new Sephora today on Sainte-Catherine: most of their fragrances are the same as any department store's, but they offer Tom Ford (the SA said they have the whole line) and Atelier Cologne! They had 30 mL and 200 mL of all six fragrances, as well as a travel set (a box containing 7.5 mL atomizers of - I think - all six scents).

    Last week the SA at Ogilvy's said that they are now the only retailer in Canada selling Goutal. Now if only I could find somewhere to buy Parfums de Nicolai.

    Hopefully they'll be adding more niche lines!

    Oh, yes! I recently discovered the store too. A couple of weeks ago attended a presentation on Atelier Cologne by a charming rep from NY and since then I have gotten Rose Anonyme and Vanille Insensée, plus the matching soaps. I remember peeking in there once a couple of years ago when they hardly had anything but now, in addition to skin care stuff, they have a few niche brands like AC, Penhaligon's, L'Artisan Parfumeur, Arquiste and Still Life. I also hope they get more. Very nice store and nice people--no affiliation on my part (disclaimer)--and the website is clear and easy to navigate.

    I just came from the boutique. They are still open until the final closing date next Thursday Dec. 11th (closed on Sunday and Monday). They said Ogilvy will be getting their stock with the exclusives only on February 3rd because it is going to take some time to do their coordination. So--four more shopping days (five if they are open on the Thursday itself).

    Bad news...Ogilvy is not going to have all the Guerlain exclusives, which includes Derby.

    The Bay downtown will also not be getting it.

    It is disgraceful to me that a world-class French city like Montreal will not have these available for purchase.

    Boss, from whom did you hear this news? Did the boutique have Derby before? This is quite worrisome news. They originally said they would have all the exclusives.
