    Chanel PM is hard to find? I didn't have any trouble at all online! But I guess I didn't really look for it in stores in the first place.

    They sell it at my local department store, and if I've got it in KENTUCKY then I know its not that hard to find.

    Most places only had the Concentree version and the prices online were a little inflated.

    I'm only counting local retailers because you can find anything on the internet

    Helmut Lang's Cuiron is still un-encountered and I only came across Caron's 3rd Man once... and didn't buy it

    The Divine scents, also Malle's line. I'm still waiting to sample some CB I hate Perfume scents. Of course, discontinued items like Ungaro I are even harder to find.

    Yves Rocher Tel Quel. It's a very smooth oriental that I never see mentioned here. It took me months to find a bottle of this potion.

    Infusion by Bombay Sapphire - This is a cologne based upon Bombay Sapphire Gin. Gin is basically a drinkable cologne; a neutral alcohol infused with botanicals for fragrance and flavor. It is an exceptional crisp/fresh cologne, easily my favorite of that type, but since it is only available for as a gift with purchase of the Gin at duty free shops, it is extremely rare.

    Cumming by Alan Cumming - This cologne has two strikes against it in terms of being taken seriously; it is a vanity cologne and has a joke name. But it is a seriously good cologne; the best smoke dominated cologne I've run across. Not easy to find but worth it when you do.

    Cool Water and Aqua Di Gio..j/k lol I agree with DK Fuel, and Egoiste. The last time I was on the Macys website they didn't even have Egoiste listed.

    The chanel Pour Monsieur that's everywhere is the Concentrée version. To find the original, I had to go to the Chanel boutique in San Francisco.
