    Guys, is anyone familiar with Crafting Boutique (http://www.craftingboutique.com/)? Can't find any information whether this is a brick and mortar store or just an online shop...

    It doesn't say come visit us or check us out in New York, so my guess is that it is an online shop.

    NYC is one of my favorite city as tourism point of view. I love this city due to attractive attractions and stunning views of Niagara Falls. It is one of the most famous fall in the world. Millions of the people come here to see the beauty of this fall. I also love it. The Table Rock Welcome Centre and One Niagara Welcome Center are the nearest shopping places near this fall. I buy lots of things in these shopping places.

    I'll be visiting Ny in may. Can anyone recommend a store near downtown where i might be able to find anything from the older "pure" lineup? Pure malt, havane. And a nice selection of designers?

    For the older Mugler lineup and other random designers in midtown you might try the string of fragrance shops along Broadway between 28th and 32nd streets and intersecting streets in the New York wholesale fragrance district. Cash only for best price and vendors at time can be pushy and overbearing, but deals can be found.

    I don't mind walking around smelling fragrances in search of a sweet deal. I've already saved the location on google maps to help me out

    Thanks Hednic !

    Great new indie boutique in Brooklyn called Twisted Lily. I've ordered online from them many times, and will be checking out the storefront for the first time later this month!

    You're welcome. There are just too many shops even to do in a day, but I'm glad you found something.

    Going to New York in a few weeks to drop my daughter off at Culinary Camp. Found MIN when I was there 2 years ago and also Barney's on Madison Ave and was impressed.
    Going to stay in the East Village. Is Twisted Lily a trek to avoid or an easy subway ride? Are there other places to check out unique to the City?

    It's an easy subway ride there to Brooklyn. Can also check out Atelier Cologne close by. In Manhattan, you should definitely pay a visit to Osswald in SOHO and Aedes de Venustas in the West Village. Also, Bergdorf Goodman on 57th St. and SAKS on 5th Avenue if time permits.

    Yes, it's a very easy subway ride and worth the trip in my opinion. I was able to visit Aedes, Jo Malone, Twisted Lily, and Atelier in an afternoon, not feeling rushed at any of them.

    Of those 4, Twisted Lily was my favorite. SA Carla was super nice and helpful.

    Finishing up our last day in Manhattan.
    Got a chance to visit Twisted Lily on Saturday, Aedes on Monday, and Osswald on Tuesday.
    Osswald was more of an afterthought.....was going to go if we had time. Of course it was the highlight of the stores tour.
    There is a part time employee there named Daisy who is simply amazing. What a nice and relaxed and knowledgeable person.
    Bought something at each shop to support them. Oswald was dangerous in that regard because they sell virtually the full line of Roja Dove (my Lord his Ouds are good) and Stephane Humbert Lucas 777 and Xerjoff. Had only smelled a few Xerjoff samples of those 3 lines so it was like being a kid in a candy store.
    Highly recommend all 3 (visited MIN last year), but especially Osswald.

    I talked with Daisy who is a total gem! She's a part timer but is the best fragrance sales person I have met...by a long shot.
    My wife talked skin care with Josie and she seemed very nice, but Daisy is the bomb.

    She teaches French at NYU as her main job, but her real interests are Perfume and Food. She gave us good advice in both arenas.

    Daisy at Osswalds is a god damned national treasure. I was doing a wide-eyed midwestern gal in the big city tour of NYC perfume shops when I met her. Osswalds was a bit of an afterthought for me as well, but I ended up spending probably 90 minutes there just hanging out with Daisy. Her knowledge of fragrance is incredible, she's totally down to earth, and she is great at navigating you through the store's offerings. She helped me pick out a bottle of Papyrus de Ciane that I am so happy with, which I would have totally missed on my own. She teaches an entire course on perfume in French at NYU. I legitimately choked up I was so happy when I walked out of that store, she made my NYC perfume dreams come true.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, I wish I was in NYC this weekend for this!!! Can someone go and tell me all about it?!


    This Saturday from 11-6 at
    1192 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn.

    D.S. & Durga is pleased to present its first-ever sample sale, which will be held in their new Bed-Stuy showroom and studio from 11AM – 6PM on October 15th (1192 Bedford Avenue). The sale will feature both deadstock and overstock items – including rarities not typically available for retail – some at markdowns ahead of the holiday season.

    This Friday, I'll be taking my daughter to NYC for college interviews. This trip is about her, so besides hitting her three potential colleges, we'll be spending an unbearable amount of time cosmetic shopping. I suspect I'll have a chance to visit only one fragrance-centered shop. So what should it be? I am a very simple person and it's important that I feel welcome. The last time I was in Chicago, I went to Hermes with the express purpose of purchasing Osmanthe Yunnan. I asked the gentleman at the door where the fragrances were and walked directly to that area, where I then stood cooling my heels for about 10 minutes. When it became clear that no one would wait on me, I took my money to Neiman's where they could not have been more gracious, generous or helpful. I'm likely to be wearing a pair of jeans, boots, a Loft shirt and minimal jewelry. Usually, the most expensive thing on my body will be my perfume. Having said that, I'm as likely to wear a Roger & Gallet as I am an Hermes or an Acqua di Parma. We'll be staying near Lincoln Center, but will also need to be in Lower Manhattan. I would be very grateful for any and all recommendations.

    Uptown, I'd suggest Bergdorf Goodman on 57th street and 5th. Downtown, I'd suggest Osswald Perfumerie at 311 West Broadway.

    Hednic, thank you for responding. I was too optimistic about the time I would have, so I was unable to visit either of your suggestions. If my daughter decides to go to school in the city, I will make sure to seek them out, particularly Osswald's. I did get to go to two shops, simply because we stumbled past them on our way to meals. One was C.O. Bigelow, which had a small selection of Molinard, Kurkdjian and several others to which I have no access. There was a gentleman named Stacey, who was truly wonderful. I was also thrilled when we passed Arabian Oud. What a beautiful store. I could have stayed all day. Nabila was lovely and very helpful. I plan to make purchases at both. Again, thank you for your response.
