    Her website shows the only place to get it on the east coast is in Delaware: http://www.monadiorio.com/boutiques

    The Perfume Shoppe in Rehoboth Beach didn't have any of her line in store when I was there, but they can have them sent from the Vancouver store according to the SA.

    New York City, with a population of over 8.1 million, is the most populous city in the United States. It is known for its status as a center for finance and culture and for its status as the largest gateway for immigration to the United States. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, it is also a destination of choice for many foreign visitors. Both the state and city were named for the 17th century Duke of York, James Stuart, future James II and VII of England and Scotland.

    Anybody know of a retail outlet carrying Vero Kern in Manhattan?

    No luck on MIN or Aedes websites (or her own). A friend is heading over in a week or so and offered to pick up something for me - time for Onda!

    Many thanks.

    PS Thanks to Kevin for replying privately. My friend is over there and it seems Aedes & Min are not carrying the line - shame, I would thought Manhattan would provide an audience for her exceptionally cutting edge and sophisticated work . . .

    I have had good experiences at Saks. The salespeople are friendly and generous with samples, especially the Kilian people. I have enough rose oud in samples that I don't think I'll have to buy a bottle for some time. Also, they seem willing to sell the refills without you having to buy the orIginal. I purchased the travel refills, and am pretty sure I could have gotten a 50ml refill for 135.

    They also give out 4oz Tom ford private line samples. Neiman and bergdorf wouldn't give me any Tom ford samples.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Does anyone know of a store in the fragrance district that sells TF private blends?

    Thanks

    Twisted Lily in Brooklyn; Osswalds; Bergdorf for JAR; CB I Hate Perfume (might need an appointment). MiN's a bit hit or miss, but the place looks kind of cool; I don't have anything good to say about Aedes, but you should still check it out I guess.

    Perfume shopping in New York is endless. Deadidol mentioned just a few. Don't forget Barney's and Henri Bendel.

    For Bergdorf, they have a Men's store and Women's store. The big perfume department is in the Women's store.

    How long are you going for?

    I will be in Manhattan for 6 nights. I have very few plans and expect to just find what the city offers on a day to day basis.I am surprised you say MiN is a hit or miss! Really? That is the one place I thought would be my first visit. Hmmm...

    It's in a good shopping area and the space itself is nice. The selection is okay. That's all I'm gonna say

    Mentioned this in another thread but Juju S'Amuse on Lexington Avenue between 82nd and 83rd carries Oriza L. Legrand, Olfactive Studio, and Eutopie. Henri Bendel as mentioned above is constantly changing their offerings. They now have Dorin and CB I Hate Perfumes among other lines.

    Hednic and Deadidol: I think both of you have read my posts and know me well enough to know my tastes. If you are so inclined and care to look at my wardrobe I would love suggestions of houses to explore. Living where I do I have limited exposure to many niche houses but I have some. I have pretty much explored what is to be had in Portland and in San Francisco I have visited and explored what Barneys, Saks and Neiman-Marcus have to offer plus the Hermes and Dyptique stores and the limited selection at Gumps which most people never mention. I know I want to sniff out Mancera but there are so many more and really need some suggestions. Thanks in advance!

    I'd probably need to think about it a little more and maybe add to the list, but I'd actually focus chiefly on the things in the NY stores that you can't find anywhere else. Honestly, it'd be quite a massive list to compile. So were I you, I'd assume you can smell almost anything that Barney's, Saks, and, Bergdorf has anywhere else except for a couple of key things:

    JAR, for example, is only in Bergdorf. You should try that entire line as you won't find them anywhere else, but just be warned about the prices and save your pennies just in case

    I think the Luten's Bell Jars are only in NY and LA right now, and they represent the best stuff that Lutens has to offer, so I'd look at:

    Musc Koublai Khan
    Boxeuses
    Irish Silver Mist
    Sarrasins
    Serge Noir
    El Attarine
    De Profundis
    Chene

    and Barney's probably still has exclusive rights to:

    DS & Durga:
    Isle Ryder

    Aside from that, I can't think of anything else right now that you can't find elsewhere. Bergdorf has Roja Dove, but they might be a bit too pedestrian. They're essentially new takes on older styles with laughably obscene price tag. They're excellent, don't get me wrong, but I can't imagine they'll do that much for you. Diaghilev's nice, though. Similar to Clive Christian, they're just expensive for the sake of being expensive. Osswalds has them too.

    MiN has exclusivity with Kerosene, but aside from "Creature" (his best scent by a mile), I can't imagine it'd be your thing. Aedes have a couple of their own scents (I don't like them myself, but you should smell the rhubarb one). Twisted Lily is probably the best bet for an experience closer to something like Scent Bar, and I'd definitely seek out CB I Hate People's stuff. You should be able to find them in the city somewhere without actually having to go to the Brooklyn shop.

    If you've never been to Le Labo, that's worth a visit. It's close to MiN and Santa Maria Novella in SoHo.

    Last: pro-tip. Demeter have massive displays of their whole line in drugstores in NY. The Duane Reade on 35th and Broadway should have them all. Honestly, some of them are pretty decent and they're like $15 each or something. I still wear Funeral Home quite often.

    If I think of more, I'll let you know, but I'd hit the NY only stuff first and foremost.

    Twisted Lily now offers DS Durga and have just added Masque Milano. Osswalds offered the full range from Profumum, MDCI and several others.

    I think you will find the experiences at Twisted Lily and Osswalds quite enjoyable. As Deadidol mentioned or subtly referenced, others can be a bit pretentious or off putting.

    Looks like Osswalds and Bergdorf are on my short list. Will probably go to Barneys too since their SF store treats me so well and I need to check out the bell jars there. JAR is something I have never sampled so I must seek them out too. Thanks for the help shortening my list! I also need to seek out Guerlain, which I think is Saks. And if I make it to Brooklyn, Twisted Lily too!

    I just discovered Twisted Lily the other day, which is Parfum1's retail store in Brooklyn. Don't know how I had never heard of it.

    I asked Stamatis, at Parfum1, if he thought they might be able to add a couple of houses that I'm currently interested in, and he said they couldn't at Parfum1, but might be able to add them at their other website, www.twistedlily.com.

    Sorry to cross post this, but:

    So after stopping by Henri Bendel in Manhattan today I was greeted with both good news and bad news. Bad news is that Henri Bendel will no longer be carrying fragrances after the end of July (2014), but the good news is that they are currently offering 40% off what they have left. They still have a lot of great scents left. Some houses I remember off the top of my head are:

    -Jovoy
    -Agonist
    -Histoires de Parfums
    -Lubin
    -So Oud
    -Annick Goutal
    -Memoire Liquide
    -Robert Piguet
    -Boadicea The Victorious
    -L'Artisan Parfumeur
    -Blood Concept
    -CB I Hate Perfume
    -Le Parfum D'Interdits
    -Maria Candida Gentile
    -Escentric Molecules
    -Tauer
    -Eight and Bob
    -Joya
    -Jardins D'ecrivains
    -Maison Dorin
    -Undergreen
    -Caron
    -Perris Monte Carlo
    -The Vagabond Prince

    ...and a few more. They are also still selling the Illuminum line of fragrances as well, but none of those are marked down. The sales representative said the reason they are discontinuing "third party" fragrances is that Henri Bendel is going to be refocusing it's efforts on it's own line of fragrances in the future. Hope some people can take advantage of this awesome sale! I picked up a bottle of Jovoy: Private Label and Agonist: Black Amber before I left. Happy Shopping!

    For someone who's new to fragrances but is looking for great deals on unique scents, what would you guys recommend I check out at Henri Bendel? I live in NYC so I can get to the store tomorrow. I do have a budget, however... I'm trying not to spend too much right now. Would appreciate any advice!

    If they have any left of the Maison Dorin fragrances, my suggestion would be to check those out.

    Was at Henri Bendel again yesterday. The sale has gone up to 50%off now. They still have the Maison Dorin fragrances, but what they have (on the whole) is beginning to thin out. Seeing that you are new to fragrances (@dhc), this is a good opportunity to sniff around at a decent selection of fragrances that you can grab for a great deal.
