    the fact that we can positively ID one another's sample bags just goes to show what a delightfully obsessive, attentive and sensitive bunch of basenoters we truly are! Also illustrates how we hand picked scents for one another to sample. It was such a delightful experience....sigh.

    Safe Travels, Matilda Ben! I did not have the presence of mind to take photos at Avery...it was all too overwhelming and I was just taking it all in

    I can't believe it has been a whole week since our epic adventure.
    In unpacking, I discovered that Bourbon French gifted me with a set of the men's samples, but not the ladies. Guess I have a reason to place an internet order sooner than I thought

    knit at nite, I just received my set of samples of the Bourbon French perfumes from Quarry today. How about if I send them along to you after testing them? PM me your address.

    I don't need a lot of juice to try them, and you should not have to buy a set to get what you ought to have gotten in the first place.

    We got back around midnight last night. We took an extended vacation after our meetup. I have sniffa pics to share as well, once I get them loaded, and I also have some pics of us at Avery that I can send to Shannon. I will get onto that shortly.

    I had an AMAZING time in New Orleans with Basenoters! It was like a dream. Or Oz and The Emerald City. I cried a little when we left Mr. & Mrs. FrouFrou's house on Sunday and we all went our separate ways. The whole weekend, the orgy of sniffing, being together in New Orleans - which is a great, sybaritic city, and sensorily crazy-stimulating - was a bit of an emotional overload for me. And we all know how fragrance affects our psyches and emotions. I cannot tell you how warmly and hospitably we were welcomed by our hosts in New Orleans. It is a very special city, and it was a special time with special people. All over too quickly. Will be back later with pics.

    Love to everybody. ♥ xo

    Just saw this thread and was very excited as I'm heading to New Orleans from Ireland this Saturday for a 5 day conference. Was interested in trying Hove.

    Currently have tam dao, penhaligons Douro, penhaligons endymion and creed GIT in collection.

    Am looking for similar male fragrance in nola? Any recommendations?
    Do they have any stockists there fir Floris or Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier?

    Best wishes,

    Hi, Sandal!
    If you have the time, you're just going to have to sniff your way through both Hove and Bourbon French.
    The only other shop of note is Saks Fifth Avenue, but they do not stock MPG or Floris.
    We'd like to hear about your trip when you get home.

    Yes, Sandal, do get over to Avery. They have great fragrances, and try to make time for Hové and Bourbon French, too. Very different places, the old New Orleans perfumeries, and Avery, but well worth visiting all of them for the full spectrum experience.

    I knew I was missing a lot as I sat in front of a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and listened to wedding music!
    The wedding was fabulous, we took a cake for traveling the furthest to attend, and it was fun to see family. I knew I was missing the NOLA sniff, but I am still sorry I did. But more than sorry for myself, I am so happy for y'all, this was a great experience.

    Let me be the one who asks: WHERE AND WHEN NEXT TIME??
