    Default New shop opens, my wallet gets emptied!

    Good news on the fragrance front in my local area.

    A new shop recently opened and it turned out to be much better than I thought it would be. In addition to having just about everything that most other shops offer (mainstream perfume house and designer products), the Paris Gallery also has counters for Creed, Bond No. 9, Clive Christian, Annick Goutal, Diptyque, and Martine Micallef. There's also a Micallef bar, with 10 premixed accords which can you further mix to come up with your own distinctive fragrance.

    I spent an entire morning there, buying bottles of Bond No. 9 H.O.T. Always and New Haarlem, Diptyque Philosykos and L'Eau Diptyque, Guerlain Acqua Allegoria Herba Fresca, and mixing up a custom Micallef blend.

    The very helpful SA treated me to sprays of the various Clive Christian products, but I didn't buy any of them. They're very nice but too rich for me.

    A Yves Rocher shop also opened up here and I picked up two bottles of the fraicheur vegetale line, Bambou and Chevrefeuille.

    My Micallef blend is nice enough, very dry and masculine, starting out with lavender and moving to sandalwood, but I want to return this weekend and try to fill in the middle and add some complexity to the sandalwood base.

    Hopefully I can stay away from the other counters!
