    Default Central Florida (Orlando) Basenotes Sniffathon - POSTPONED

    Hello everyone in the Central Florida area.

    I was thinking of organizing an Orlando Basenotes "sniffathon" next Saturday, 1/17/09. Maybe go to Mall at Millenia, Florida Mall and/or any other places someone may suggest.

    I can organize a car pool from Tampa.

    If you are interested in meeting up, let me know.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    I'm interested.

    What would you like to smell?

    The Mall at Millenia probably has the largest selection.

    Millenia has the Neiman (Guerlain, Creed, Jo Malone, etc), Chanel boutique with Les Exclusifs, and Bloomingdales with Miller Harris and others.

    Florida Mall has Saks (Clive Christian, Armani Privé, Bond 9, Mugler, etc), Dillards (Bois 1920 plus all your designers, etc), Sephora (lots and lots).

    Both have a bunch of specialty stores like L'Occitane, Body Shop, etc so either one would be a good choice! Honestly, they're not very far from each other either. (and Florida mall has the huge M&M store... just sayin.)

    Hi,

    This is the day I arrive Iin Orlando for my next vacation, getting there at 4.00pm!! Sounds like I will just miss out, but as I will be saving my spending spree until later on in the year when I return in September, I will only have the pennies for one or two reasonable priced fragrancess if I get the chance this time around.

    You might want to check out Etro store at the Orlando Premium Outlets, as I believe they now have the complete fragrance range and matching bath products. The Brooks Brothers store there also sells their range of fragrances, and perhaps the Donna Karan store has the classic Fuel For Men to try?

    Let me know what time you are going to be in Orlando to, just in the off chance I can catch up a little, as it would be nice to meet up with some fellow Basenoters, if not have a great day!

    It's an event where members living close by each other go to the local "malls" and sample fragrances they would like to try, see what's new, drink Starbucks and generally harass the SA's. I'ts great fun.

    I just ran over there at lunch and sadly, they don't have the fragrance line yet. The guy there said they were slated to have the whole line, plus candles, etc eventually but he didn't know when they expected them. Too bad though - I was totally ready for an impulse buy.

    Damn, that's one option out the window for my take home fragrance! When I waslastover in September they said they expected the fragrance line in store by November. Guess that has been delayed.

    I enjoy checking out the fragrances at Millennia and Florida Malls too, plenty of nice fragrances to try!

    I agree....either mall is fine. FL Mall has more variety overall, while Millenia has more of the niche stuff.

    Our friend silverbullet is a little under the weather. So it looks like we will have to postpone our get together until another weekend.

    I hope to see everyone soon!

    Get well soon Jack.
