    Default Tired of "popular" department store fragrances

    Hi,

    I am a lover of scents but tired of the readily-available perfumes and colognes in department stores. Can anyone recommend a private designer or any small "gems" that one wouldn't find at Perfumania, dept stores, Marshall's, etc...? I am open to essential oil combos as we'll.

    Thanks!

    You live in Phoenix. Why not check out the offerings at the Perfumeshoppe in Scottsdale? https://theperfumeshoppe.com/

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    You'd get a whole range of niche perfumes at the Perfume Shoppe in Scottsdale, on East Stetson Drive- but watch out for store timings. In the same area there is a Nordstrom which has some of the more expensive designer stuff such as Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Hermes.
    A bit further north in Scottsdale there is Neiman Marcus which covers some otherwise uncovered niche and designer grounds including Tom Ford private blend, Armani Prive, Creed etc.
