    Default Sniffing in Nice.

    Dear friends, I have just returned from a long weekend in Nice, France.
    Thought you might like to hear of my perfume-related experiences.
    First stop was to l'Occitane where I bought some refreshing Verveine moist
    wipes. They gave me some samples in my bag!! Next I headed for Sephora -
    and bought some Fig shower gel for a colleague(Sephora's own brand) and tested SL's Gris Clair (Wow) and Fleur d'Oranger(lovely).
    Next stop was Marrionaud where I spritzed myself with Jardins du Bagatelle.
    The two girls showing us round some apartments (we wer elooking to buy out there) both commented on it favourably.
    Finally I went into Galerie Lafayette and tried out the new Cartier (Delices).
    Not that impressed with this one!
    After all that retail therapy I needed a break, so I bought a Fleur d'Oranger flavoured/scented ice cream from Fennochios ( the best ice-cream manufacturer in the world bar none) - couldn't believe all the flavours they sell. Olive, Tomato and basil, Lavender, etc.etc.
    In the end we got our apartment - right bang in the centre of Nice's main shopping area. Can't wait to go out again. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

    Nice is nice!
    Thanks for posting, kewart! I was in Nice back in -75, have a friend who has a small apartment there, and she wants me to fly there. I`m a bit scared of flying alone, but you wrote the word that maybe could change that:
    Galerie Lafayette!!!
