    I ordered the not so easy to find "Apres L'Ondee" from Georgeanne at the Guerlain Boutique at the Palazzo. It was a wonderful experience and I will keep the boutique in my contact list. My merchandise arrived promptly along with a couple samples of new fragrances she thought I might like. When it's time to buy more I'll be giving the boutique and Georgeanne a call.

    I've written up my experience with Chuck several times.. he is absolutely amazing. When I first visited, he took me on a full tour -- letting me experience everything in the store. Amazing to work with on the phone and through email..I have bought probably 7 bottles over the past three years since meeting him.

    If you are a fan of Guerlain - skip your local counter and go right to the LV boutique

    Gotta agree djron....I like to shop local, but often the sales people at the local perfume counters treat the testers as their own personal stash, the customer as an intrusion and getting a sample is impossible most of the time. I know that it is a big generalization - but it is based on years of experience. So - in the future, I'll avoid the aggravation and when I know what I want from Guerlain, I'll call the Palazzo and save gasoline and avoid the aggravation factor.

    I'm a repeat customer there. Jorganne and Chuck are so helpful. I get the feeling whomever it is that picks up the phone would be helpful there. Obviously either well-managed, chock-full of passionate employees, or a lot of both. Agree with all the positive comments above and, if fact, have a package in transit from them at this very instant.

    A Thank You to mr. primrose for the reference on the earlier 'where to buy Derby bee bottle thread'!

    Another Kudo for the Guerlain Boutique at the Palazzo: Jorganne was able to get me Derby in the 500 ml bee bottle....get this folks....for $335. Recall that the 125 ml white bee in Les Parisienne lines was $250. Apparently, anything in the guerlain collection can be ordered in the Bee bottles.

    My recommended places to go:

    Venetian/Palazzo Shoppes - Barneys (aka Mecca)(the downstairs is where to go first, the 3rd level has the "Men's section", but most of them are carried downstairs as well but with a few exceptions), Guerlain, Dior (carries La Collection Privee), Fresh

    Fashion Show Mall - Neiman Marcus (Creed/TFPB/MFK/much more), Saks (Bond/Killian/Jo Malone/much more), Nordstroms, Macys, Dillards. If you are going to spend time at the mall, do yourself a favor and look up the store directory before hand. There are other department stores and shops that carry fragrances (L'Occitane, Body Shop, Perfumania, etc..). I receive the best customer service at Neiman Marcus. Saks is snobby. Nordstrom doesn't have near the selection of NM or Saks, but it is easy to get samples there.

    Wynn/Encore - Chanel x2, Hermes, Dior, Wynn Drugstore (Penhaligon's, L'Artisan), Jo Malone

    Crystals @ City Center - Hermes, Tom Ford, Van Cleef & Arpels (carry Collection Extraordinarie), Prada (carry Exclusive collection), also inside Aria there is a Men's store that carries fragrances such as Acqua di Parma.

    Cosmopolitan- Skins 6|2 The only niche boutique in Vegas. Good selection. Off the top of my head they carry (Creed, By Killian, Serge Lutens, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Diptyque, Santa Maria Novella, Eau d'Italie, Juliette Has A Gun, Tokyo Milk). I named off most of them. Perhaps I missed a few of the smaller lines. I will say that the selection of most of these lines are not complete. Creed & Serge Lutens are definitely limited here. If you are shopping for those 2 brands Neiman Marcus & Barneys respectively are where you should go.) Perhaps give them a call and see what all they are carrying before making a visit. Also if you aren't aware Cosmopolitan and Crystals @ City Center are next door to each other.

    Planet Hollywood Miracle Mile Shops- The biggest Sephora fragrance selection that I have seen. It's right on the street at one entrance to the shops. But overall, for a mile of shopping, little fragrance selection besides Sephora. If you have never been in a Sephora they will gladly give 3 samples per person no problem.

    Mandalay Bay - Lush (not a full selection, don't make this the only reason to go here). But if you are at Mandalay Bay stop in.


    I named off most of the places I personally go. There are definitely other boutiques and shops scattered all around the strip, but Fashion Show Mall, Palazzo, Crystals/Cosmopolitan, Wynn are the places with multiple stores within them.

    There are 2 main outlet malls both called "Las Vegas Premium Outlets". One is North, the other South. They have some perfume shops with a decent designer selection. However I have found prices to be higher than online. They are both off the strip and can take time to get to. Many foreign tourists go here clothing shopping. I wouldn't really recommend going here for solely fragrance shopping unless you are in Las Vegas for several days, have already been to all of the above places, and don't have similar shops in your town. On the plus side, I have been able to smell many designer fragrances that are not sold in department stores or Sephora any longer here, but I have never bought one thing in them.

    Rhaybans - thanks so much for the updated list. I did not know about Skins 6/2. This information will be very helpful in planning the next Basenotes meetup in Las Vegas. If you do not know about the meetup, please check the stickied thread in either the male or female fragrance discussion board - we'd love to have you join us.

    Driving to Vegas first thing in the morning, great recommendations here, will definitely check the Guerlain boutique, it's the only thing LA/OC seems to be missing.

    Default Shopping in Vegas

    Going to Las Vegas in late October. Besides Hermes, Chanel, Dior and the Guerlain boutique, what other fragrance related shops should I check out? On a side note, what's the best hotel to stay at while in Vegas?

    Thanks in advance....

    Barney's at the Palazzo is a must visit, IMO. They have a fine selection of brands there (designer and niche). Speaking of the Palazzo, it would make for an excellent choice for your hotel stay... That said, my recommendation is either THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay, The Aria or The Wynn. If you are looking for more of an upscale value hotel, then MGM Grand is a tremendous bang for-the-buck 4 star resort that just remodeled their rooms and suites and they are superb.

    Yeah, Barneys for sure and check out Skins 6/2. As to hotel accommodations, it's all about your agenda and what your budget is. If you know what you're going to be doing and where, I suggest staying someplace close to that, otherwise you'll be in cabs everywhere and those add up fast. Mandalay Bay has got the best pool. The Hard Rock has got Rehab, which is a draw.

    Update : I visited skin 6/2 at the cosmopolitan and they added Amouage, Montale and Histoire De Parfums . They will get bond 9 over the next few weeks. They already have most of the Creeds, Diptyque , some Serge Lutens and by Killian. They have other brands I am less familiar with . Talk to Linda , she is very helpful .

    - - - Updated - - -

    I thought it might be a good idea to update the stores and what they have after my recent trip to Las Vegas:
    The fashion mall has :

    Neiman Marcus and they carry Clive Christian , Ramon Monegal, Tom Ford PB , Acqua di Parma, MFK , Sisley , Van Cleef and Arpel private collection, Creed.
    SAKs By Killian and Bond 9
    Nordstrom : Acqua di Parma and Diptyque.


    The Venetian and Palazzo shops have :
    Barney's and they carry : Frederic Malle, Serge Lutens, L' artisan , Heeley, Le Labo, Byerdo, Nasomatto, Odin, the Different. Company, comme Des Garcons and others that I am not very familiar with.
    Guerlain boutique , Dior boutique that carries their private collection.


    Wynn has Chanel that carries their exclusive line and Dior and you can find Penhaligon's and L artisan at the drug store in the casino next to the cashier.

    The city center has another Dior store that carries their private collection ( I bought leather oud and Amber Nuit from their) and you can use th bridge from their to get to the Cosmopolitan to get the Skin 6/2 where they carry Amouage , montale and Histoire De Parfums ( only store in Vegas to carry those brands) and they also carry Diptyque, Creed, Atelier an by Killian. They are also getting Bond 9 soon.

    Bellagio has Armani that carries Armani Prive, and a Chanel that carries the exclusive line.
    Hope this would be helpful for Vegas visitors

    Another endoresement for two boutiques:

    Hermes at Crystals at City Centre: Wonderful safes staff who help with questions and purchase.

    I would be visiting Vegas in a couple of day's, could anyone let me know how are the "dior homme intense" and the "l'instant de guerlain extreme" priced ?

    Thanks,

    Dior has DHI. No LIDGE in the USA. DHI is reasonably priced but it's probably cheaper on fragrancenet.

    Default Re: Las Vegas, Nevada

    Thanks for your reply, i find it weird that my country(India) which is extremely basic in terms of fragrances, has a in a shopping mall chain both Dior and Guerlain counters, while the official Guerlain boutique doesnt have the l"instant, any reason for that
    ?
    the DHI 100ml at my end is priced at 113$ and the L'instant extreme EDP is priced at 85$, do you think this a good price and i should buy it or will i get a better deal in Vegas ?

    So disappointed... I'm in Vegas right now, stopped at the Hermes boutique at City Center, wanted to buy Bel Ami Vetiver. They not only do not have it, they have not even heard of such a thing. Tried pushing Vetiver Tonka on me as "the only" vetiver fragrance they carry. <sigh>

    It's sad when customers know more about any company's products than the people who WORK there every day.

    Nordstrom should have it, if not Sephora - unless it is not out yet?
    Could try Hermes boutique at the Bellagio...

    Doesn't appear to be released in the USA yet..it's on their UK website, no other website....looks like UK exclusive for the time being? Yep...Paris exclusive from December onwards, wider distribution in 2014.

    http://uk.hermes.com/perfumes/men/bel-ami-vetiver.html


    Another example of regionalism and "exclusives" -- sigh, do these companies not know it's 2014 and we live in a global society? Or did they not get that memo yet?

    Also remember, for most of the SA's -- it's just a job, it's not their hobby / life like it is ours.
    While I have to agree when they're charging more than 100 semolians per bottle, the SA should know their stuff, unfortunately life does not work that way.

    Try Epice Marine while you're there...I hated it at first but grew to love it.

    Go to the Bellagio. They have an Hermes right at the main entrance. I work in the hair salon there and regularly go to check out fragrances on my lunch break. Last time I was there they had Bel Ami as well as all their other fragrances.

    Tried it when it first came out, got samples at home, don't care for it. Nice, but... too benign for my taste.

    Bel Ami, or Bel Ami Vetiver? I have plenty of the former, wanted to buy the later. New release and all...

    Sorry, missed the vetiver part. Didn't see that one there but that doesn't mean they don't have it. If you want to save a trip call the Bellagio and have them transfer you to Hermes. It's worth a trip going there because they just put up the Chinese New Year theme In the main atrium which is a sight worth seeing. Plus the chanel boutique there has a lot of good stuff also.

    Nice, make sure to go next door to the cosmopolitan and check out Skins 6/2. It's on the second floor and has a large selection of niche brands. No designers but a bunch of good stuff ie. by killian, mfk, Santa Maria novella , serge lutens, creed, diptyque, atellier, amouage and many more I can't remember. All the fragrances are easily accessible to smell so you can go sample anything you've been wanting to get your nose on. Prices are retail but still a lot of good stuff in one spot.

    They know their stuff...thanks for letting us know the release date.
    I fail to see why they don't want to release it everywhere at the same time, but then I recall Tom Ford had Lavender Palm as "The Scent of LA" for like a year before they started offering it to the rest of us. I do not like this exclusivity in the fragrance industry, I don't care what your brand name is or how it's made with what kind of ingredients. Give the people what they want FFS
