    Default Only-available-in-America fragrances

    I have a friend visiting the 'States in a few days' time, and she is willing to go perfume scouting for me. I've asked her to look for Tiptoeing Through Chambers of the Moon (because it's tuberose based frag, and I love the name), but I thought I could also ask the folks here on Basenotes if they can think of any America-only perfumes I could get her to bring back for me. My favourites are florals and chypres, but I'm moving firmly into orientals as I add on the years <g> and I'm open to your suggestions. If there's anything you'd class as a 'must have and can't get in the UK' I'd love to hear about it.

    There are a couple of fragrances that are some specific store only, like FM Outrageous and MH Rose en Noir for Barney's, Creed Amalfi Flowers for Saks etc, if you care for those.

    Le Labo scents are unavailable in the UK - their florals tend to get good reviews.

    Check out osmoz.com and browse their ladies sections they tend to show perfumes that have been launched in the US only...

    Miller Harris Rose en Noir is at Liberty's too (also supposedly exclusive). So perhaps it's exclusive to those stores in those countries only.

    There's Bond 5th Avenue...that's not available in the UK...but the one thing I'd really want to check out is CB I Hate Perfume.

    Thanks for the tips! I'll check some of these out online (for notes etc) and see what I can get her to look out for. I'm definitely intrigued by Le Labo and CB I Hate Perfume.

    Anne Pliska is worth checking too. I was fortunate to be able to swap for this!

    Le Labo is now available at Liberty's...

    Love this international community and chagrined to find it takes someone in Sweden to tell me I can get MH Rose en Noir here.(Seattle is missing a Neiman-Marcus, but we have a new Barneys.) I'd written it off, as I thought it was only in person at Liberty's.
