    The last two weeks have been dregs at TJMaxx. I haven't really seen much new at several western NY stores except a pretty big supply of various Jaguar fragrances (the best part about them are the substantial, classy bottles.)

    As predicted, an avalanche of the Xmas coffret/mini Calvin Klein gift sets are showing up at $19.99. Pass.

    I have been finding more goodies in the soaps section. Yellow-tagged, ultra-clearance, post-holiday clearout of most of the holiday items can be found. Also keep an eye on clearance fragrances that individually show up on those shelves. I've seen some tolerables for $10-15. There is visually nothing wrong with the boxes -- they must have just been sitting around too long.

    I'd say the one line that absolutely doesn't seem to sell in western NY is Juicy Couture. Individual bottles and gift sets have dust on them. There seems to be absolutely no interest.

    Lot of CK Man, as noted above. Is that stuff any good?? Anyone else note, too, that MAxx puts womens frags in w/ mens sometimes?

    I have been looking to find Rochas Man at TJ Maxx, Ross, or Marshalls for a few months now but never saw any. Today I saw We Came As Romans found a bottle. So I went to the Maxx and didn't find any. I went to Marshalls and they didn't have any in the mens section. Luckily I checked the women's section and there was one bottle!!!

    I think Rochas Man is a steal at $20 (even 30-40)!

    I can't wait to compare it to my New Haarlem.

    Karl Lagerfeld Kapsule for $15. This any good? I'm a fan of KL's work in the world of fashion but somehow I have never tried any of his fragrance.

    I've seen the regular Cartier Declaration awhile back in TJ's, but I haven't seen Bois Bleu there yet. I'd probably be tempted to pick it up if I saw it. I have a sample of Declaration & kinda like it (it would be really nice if the cardamom/cumin note was toned down, so I'm thinking I might like Bois Bleu, although I haven't sampled it yet).

    Yes it is a toned-down Declaration, with much less cumin, more citrus, & an inoffensive synthetic woody note. Longevity is not as good as the original.

    Yes, TJMaxx got in Kapsule Light two weeks ago. It's a nice fragrance, but Woody and Floriental are better. It's worth the $14.99. Kapsule frags are evidently designed to be layered with one-another to customize the experience. I have only seen Light turn up so far.

The numbers run 01-24 and correspond to the month within a two-year calendar. 23 means it has been sitting there since November, 24 December, 01 January, 02 February, and so on.

    The best stores don't allow stuff to sit more than a month before it gets dumped to the clearance shelf. The worst will let things linger three months or more (usually with a well-worn box by then from being overhandled.)

    The stores with the fastest merchandise turnover (when they red tag items they get sold pretty quick -- yellow tag means ultra-"please get this out of our store" clearance) tend to have the most variety of new things in-store, while the worst are overloaded with crap Polo, Clean, and Liz Taylor stuff that never leaves.

    There have been some new nice soaps showing up for Valentine's Day, and I am seeing more of the overhandled Xmas gift sets finally getting red-tagged and out of the way (goodbye and good riddance overstocked CKin2U, Perry 360, Beyonce, Juicy Couture, Arden, and CK Be).

    Meanwhile, at Burlington Coat Factory, remaining Xmas gift sets are all 50% off. Idiot girl Paris Hilton is well stocked (Paris Hilton for Men is not bad though), which gives you an idea about the selection. United Colors of Benetton frags also appeared there, at prices several dollars lower than TJMaxx. I grabbed Lagerfeld Classic for $9.99. It isn't worth a penny more.

    The local Douglas store seems to breaking into the "Exclusifs" range by Dior, but niche is otherwise quite underrepresented, even almost non-existent, at this retailer

    Finally some new stuff is showing up, a lot of it clearly designed for warmer weather months. Nautica White Sale and Voyage, Michael Jordan and Jordan by Michael (how original), new smaller bottles of Izod and Daddy Yankee, Banana Republic W and Banana Republic Classic by Banana Republic, and Lilly Pulitzer Squeeze are all in-store in western NY. They also are finally dumping some of "taking up space" stuff to the clearance rack I have seen for months. The best choices I've seen are Bang!, occasional bottles from the house of Lolita Lempicka, and some oddballs from Roberto Cavalli, along with the usual suspects from Liz Taylor, Cabotine, Perry Ellis, and Boss which you would have to yellow tag to get me to consider.

    Banana Republic Classic is unusual because you get two 50ml packages boxes inside the bigger box, so get one for yourself and one to gift to a friend. It's not going to be a go-to fragrance for everyone anyway, so the 50ml should last a long time.

    I expect in another week or two, all of the overload of giant bottles of liquid soap will probably start getting clearanced out too. There seems to be a much weaker choice of hand soaps and lotions at the moment too.

    I also found a lot of ultra-clearanced mainstream stuff at Sears up to 80% off, mostly star-branded items. Idiot girl Paris Hilton this and that in particular.

    Most hair-raising revelation for me: Justin "I'm so overexposed" Bieber has a fragrance getting more promotion. I see his picture and I think to myself, it should be called Moléstation pour Homme. I'm sure it will end up in TJMaxx, et al., in due course.

    I just blind bought Rochas Man at TJ Maxx for 19.99. I've heard so many good things about it from this forum and other reviews, I figured for $20 it's probably worth it. Especially if it somewhat resembles New Haarlem

    other fragrances at this TJ Maxx include; and I don't remember all the names so forgive me

    I impulse bought Rochas Man for $20 at TJ Maxx today after feeling sick from Le Male all day. I LOVE IT! I think this is gonna be my new daily fragrance. I'm in highschool and I heard that this was perfect for that. Im questioning the longevity though. More recent reviews say that this wont last any more than 5 hours and has really small projection. On older reviews however (2008 and earlier), people say that the projection is huge on this and that it should last all day. I guss they reformulated it or something because thats a pretty big difference.

    In the past week, at the Marshalls and TJ Maxx at Downtown Crossing in Boston:

    Santos de Cartier -- 3.4 oz. for $69.99

    A*Men Sunessence (I think one of those 'summer storm' editions?) -- 3.4 oz. for $39.99

    It wears a little big for the first hour or two, when it's in its green / sugary phase. Once it dries down to the chocolate milk accord it becomes a skin scent.

    I went to TJ Maxx today and saw the following:

    Rochas Man 1.6oz for 19.99 (as many others have already)
    Quorum 3.4oz for 14.99
    Some Ferrari frags (not sure which ones)
    Some Jaguar frags (can't remember)
    Tommy Bahama 3.4 19.99
    Boss Number 1 4.2oz 39.99
    Shalimar EDC 44.99
    Marc Jacobs Bang 1.7oz 29.99 (should have picked this one up, but didn't)

    I wound up getting the Tommy Bahama and Boss Number 1.
    The Boss Number 1 is very nice. The price isn't that great, but I'm looking forward to wearing it.

    Yeah, there never seems to be a shortage of those Jaguar frags at our Maxx. Are any of them any good ? I have no idea.

    Bunches of Feragamo stuff as well, but it's the same deal : I have no idea if any of them are good or not. I saw some of the Z-14 with oakmoss, and some of it that only listed the treemoss.

    I finally broke down and made my very first Maxx purchase : for $13 I suspect that "Bang" aftershave balm can't have been be that terrible of a purchase.

    Still waiting to see the infamous Rochas Man come through.

    Bang! aftershave does nothing for me. I returned it. Buy the cologne! I have seen Bang! cologne sit on the shelves of our TJ Maxx stores for weeks and they often end up on the clearance rack where it is a steal. People are turned off by the name and a lot of Maxx fragrance shoppers buy blind and will pass something by that looks unappealing.

    Bang! is pepper and Iso E Super. If you pre-apply lotion on your skin, you can keep the pepper going strong for hours. Otherwise, it fades pretty fast but the scent's other elements are still there.

    Right now it is ultra-slim selection in western NY again. They got a huge shipment of Halston 1-12 and Z-14 and piled those boxes on the shelf. Tommy Bahama is also piled high again. Jaguar Performance, Vision, and Classic will also be all over. Vision works for me. Ferrari Black, Red, and Extreme are all well-represented as well, but I passed on all of them. Nothing to see there.

    Boss #1 at $39.99 is out of my price tolerance for a Hugo Boss. I suspect it will be for a lot of folks and will eventually be kicked to clearance.

    I have recently been walking out of TJ Maxx empty-handed because the selection has gotten so sparse. I was encouraged when a bunch of summer citruses started turning up a few weeks ago, but that was a one-shot deal. When loads and loads of shelf-crowding Jaguar and Bahama stuff turned up (again), I knew I was in for disappointment. Quorum is the only unique one I've seen lately. Rochas Man comes and goes... buy it when you see it - it may be months before it comes back.

    Same here. I did get a couple Rochas 1.6oz. bottles for $16 each but that was a few weeks ago.
