    CdC perfumes cost around 100 - 137 USD.

    Kyoto costs around 2000 - 3000 THB.

    The selection of perfume at the shop is quit limit. I recommend you try to find phone numbers of the boutique and ask them that which scents available to purchase now.

    I believe they only import 1 or 2 bottle for each scent.

    I went to Siam Paragon only one day after the scent arrived and they are sold out.

    Thanks Wit_Siamese, I'll have a look when I'm in Bangkok next month, I'm particularly interested in sniffing their Leaves series but since I've only smelled a dozen of CdG so far, I'm interested in sniffing anything

    Because of the time warp from changing the site. I think I should post these update again.

    Diptyque -- Siam Paragon - Beauty/Fragrance Department

    Annick Goutal -- Siam Paragon - Beauty/Fragrance Department (Next to Diptyque, imported by the same company)

    Les Collection de Christian Dior -- Siam Paragon - Beauty/Fragrance Department --Need to ask the SA to try, they not put them on counter yet. Some are already sold out.

    L'Artisan Parfumeur -- Siam Paragon - Beauty/Fragrance Department (Pop-up store available until the end of 2013)


    News

    The same company that imports L'Artisan Parfumeur is going to import Amouage and Penhaligons next. No information that they are going to have permanent counters or only the pop-up stores.

    By the way, Amouage is going to be available here soon.

    It seem to be my duty to also try Fate Woman and report my first impression here because I posted the 1st thread on Amouage Fate Duo before Amouage released information on them.

    Perfume event in Bangkok on 11 January at Thavibu Gallery in Silom, 3-8 pm. (google location). All BNs are warmly welcome.

    Press release:

    One may look upon perfumery as an art form; using words as 'composition', 'notes', 'multi-layered' 'original', and a host of other expressions related to other art forms. There is also an artist or a creator who blends the perfumes and a curator who oversees the process.

    Thavibu Gallery has teamed up with PerfumersWorld to organise a one day exhibition event of perfumes in Bangkok. The event will include a demonstration how essential oils are produced and an opportunity to smell them, such as patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss, labdanum etc.. The demonstration will also feature how perfumes are blended.

    Important haute-couture perfumes will be on display and available for visitors to smell – and for you to try to identify individual notes. There will also be an explanation about different families of perfumes and a discussion related to classical vs. contemporary and male vs. female perfumes.

    The exhibition will feature a section on how to make your own perfume with the opportunity to try it out in practice – your very own Bespoke Perfume.

    Amour 4 psyche – is a perfume inspired by the book and movie Perfume, Amoore & Psyche was the first perfume created by novice Jean Baptiste Grenoiulle on his first meeting of the Master Perfumer Monsieur Baldini. The notes that the perfume was built from will be displayed. 25 bottles of the limited edition perfume Amour 4 psyche especially created for this event will be available for sale to guests.

    Congrats, Farang. That sounds fantastic.

    I would love to visit the exhibition if I do not need to station at the city hall due to the current situation here.

    What's the deal with these popup stores that only offer fragrances for a couple of months? Seems odd to me. Are they just testing the market?

    I'm going to be in BKK in February. I plan on checking out what's available, including Fragrance du Bois. BTW, has anyone tried any of their offerings?

    They were nice enough to offer me a free sample after I complained that their shop was unstaffed when I last visited BKK. Looking forward to seeing if they have different ideas about using oud compared with the Arabian houses.

    BTW, what is the difference between the Maison du Bois on Rajadamri Road and the Atelier du Bois in the Intercontinental Shops?

    MdB is the showroom of their Bangkok Office, I believe.

    AdB is a boutique in the shopping arcade.

    I don't understand... what's the rumor of Amouage being watered down? Is it across the board, to all fragrances?

  22. #52

    Default Re: Fragrance in Bangkok, Thailand

    Hi cytherian,

    I think that the online conclusion is that the 'watered down" comment was an ironic joke via Twitter which was taken as fact, based on the person that said it.

    The ones that I waft, Jubilation XXV, Memoir Man, Interlude Fate Man are all as strong as I like. That leaves many others that I cannot comment on as I do not own them.

    If the words in my first sentence are incorrect then I am sure there will be a relatively fast response if others have had a different experience or have come to another conclusion based on fact rather than comedic tweets. Let see what happens...

    - - - Updated - - -

    I think I will wait for you Mr Wit check what 1111ff is saying by visiting the store. Very hard to believe that one market would have watered down scents. You, Mr Wit are in a position to judge as you already have others from over the seas. It would be great to hear the the prices have been watered down! and that the scents are as we expect them to be. Or do you think that as some people assume that Asian people prefer lighter fragrances then what 1111f is true? Surely though the shop expects both overseas and local clients.

    I have tried JXXV for men 2 years ago I own it from It really good and long lasting But yesterday I tried at Amouage counter and It different I not sure maybe about batch version but it really light and no good,not my cup of tea

    - - - Updated - - -

    Its My ImO but you know thailand cosmetic duty is very high for example Penhaligon around 200+$ Santa maria novella 190$ and why amouage can be this price 210$? Because lucky scent price is 290$ other online shop around 230-240$ and Malaysia around 300$

    It is possible that those testers are shipped and kept in bad condition until they are damaged.

    By the way, Dia Man and Jubilation XXV look so much alike. That SA might handed you the wrong tester.


    I am going to visit farang's exhibition on January so the BN members of Thailand should go to Amouage Bangkok Counter to try those testers and prove if 'the watered down' happened or not.


    Ps. I just sent a message to Amouage about this 'watered down for Bangkok Market rumor' on this thread so they might come to explain us what happened.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Reporting from the scene at Siam Paragon where that member said 'he tried Jub XXV & it smelled watered down", there is no Jub XXV tester, it is Dia Man tester, besides there is no Jub XXV box here.

    But it is really cheaper here.

    According to the SA, some tester are not arrived yet.

    The pop up store might open until February.

    The ones that I waft, Jubilation XXV, Memoir Man, Interlude Fate Man are all as strong as I like. That leaves many others that I cannot comment on as I do not own them.

    If the words in my first sentence are incorrect then I am sure there will be a relatively fast response if others have had a different experience or have come to another conclusion based on fact rather than comedic tweets. Let see what happens...
    Thanks, Jordan. I have a sample I got from AdV and I'll definitely do a comparison to the bottle I'm getting next week. I can't imagine my sample is watered down. It smells strong to me. So comparing it to my incoming bottle should clear up any concerns.

    Is there a dress code for attending your exhibition ? Smart casual or Suit&Tie ?

    I am going to go to coworker's wedding in the morning, then come to your gallery.

    By the way, I am going to bring samples of niche scents to your gallery: Trayee by Neela Vermeir Creations, my favorite from last year.

    I received my bottle of Epic Man. Smells fantastic. I'm definitely going to fully explore this brand.

    They were nice enough to offer me a free sample after I complained that their shop was unstaffed when I last visited BKK. Looking forward to seeing if they have different ideas about using oud compared with the Arabian houses.

    BTW, what is the difference between the Maison du Bois on Rajadamri Road and the Atelier du Bois in the Intercontinental Shops?

    Hi Noggs,
    we only want our customers to be happy. We understand how frustrating it must be to find the shop isn't open from a customer's point of view, being customers ourselves!
    L'Atelier du Bois at Hotel Intercontinental is our \retail store where you can try and buy the fragrances, the other is our office!
