    Default Went to Aedes today

    Went there for first time after work, Did not realize how close they are only about a 6 minute walk from work

    I am in trouble now LOL will be going there a lot I guess

    Unfortunately they closed early due to being halloween and the crazy parade that was about to start so only got to check the place out for about 20 minutes.

    I only got to to sniff the Montale for a bit and sprayed some Montale Black Aoud on my hand, she gave me a sample of that since I seemed interested.

    It been a few hours, well my initial reactions are so far it ok, it not punget with the initial sprays like some of the reviews say, to be honest I am not sure what to make it out, I do not smell any of the medicinal properties, I do smell some of the rose. I guess I need to give it some more time. I think it ok, not sure it so great to be worth $210 I don't know maybe it needs to grow on me.


    So i will probably go back next week, to be honest I had no idea what to really smell while I was there there was so much. Any recommendations what specifically you guys recommend? Anything that is high on the priority list?

    Check out the website

    http://www.aedes.com/brand.php?cat_id=1

    and make a list. I would go for Amuage, Etro, by Kilian, Serge Lutens, Heeley, Montale, Frapin

    Thats the problem is that there are so many fragrances by Montale, let alone the other niches. Try Sweet Oriental Dream on paper, even if not for you, just to see exactly how good the line is. I would recommend Golden and Lime Aoud. Patch. Leaves, Vanille Absolute, Greyland, Attar, Royal Aoud, and White Aoud. Any of their oriental, vanilla, or gourmand fragrances are superb. Those will give you a better idea about the house...Oh, and I wish I lived that close to Aedes, since they give out samples so easily. I'm about 3,000 miles away from them.

    A great little store. For anyone who's interested, the shoe store across the street has the finest selection of men's shoes available. Leffot. True gentleman's shoes, not the trash that seems popular these days.

    Don't overdo it, sample the bottles of Killian, Lutens, Amouage. And then go back once a week till you've made your way through the store. That should keep you busy for awhile. Bigelows on 6th Avenue bet: 8th and 9th Streets is good for sampling, too.

    Check out the Parfum d'Empire line and the Serge Lutens line above all else.

    Agree with Ged, a visit to both of these great stores makes for a wonderful experience in quality goods.

    I had to fly to NYC today for a meeting tomorrow. My flight was delayed, so I landed later then expected. So I went directly to Aedes from the airport instead of my hotel. Luckily I got there a little after 7PM (they close at 8PM).

    What a great store! I spent the hour chatting with the very knowledgeable staff and sampling a variety of fragrances from Montale, By Killians, Amouage (including Homage), Penhaligons, Parfum d'Empire, and Eau d'Italie (to name a few). I also walked away with a bunch of samples - they were very accomodating and more then happy to make samples of anything.

    I highly recommend visiting the store if you have the opportunity. I do not think you will regret it.

    Ahem! And I didn't get a heads up that you were going...They were probably packaging up my Tam Dao as they were talking to you. It is on the way to me from Aedes today.

    I almost called you from the store.

    They were sctually putting together some packages. If I knew one was yours, I would have put an obscene message in it.

    I did finally try Red Vetyver in your honor. I like it. But it is just way too close to Terre d'Hermes to me - and since I own that, do not see a need for the other.

    Darn...I love dirty prose.

    Red Vetyver is more natural smelling and not mineralic like Terre d'Hermes, but I love both equally and the genre they are in is my favorite, so that is why I own both. I need to send you a sample, so that you can do a couple of full wearings of Red Vetyver and see what your impressions are.

    Now you cut the computer off and go to bed mister, and don't even think of walking the streets of NY at 10:30, when you have work in the morning...Hey get back here! and put some clothes on will ya!
