When you look up a fragrance in the basenotes directory there will often be a list of web sites on the right hand side of the page. Except for the ones in Great Britain I think I've bought bottles from just about all of them. They all should be 100% reliable unless you see 50 posts tonight to the contrary.
Nieman, Saks, Bergdorf the 5th Avenue stores all charge full retail. I love the ambiance and salewomen, but sadly I had children and they squeezed every last dime outta me. My wife is partially to blame also.
