    Wait what? Sounds interesting! Have you tried before? If so, how's your experience with it?

    Hi. Just wondering if there is any place to get Guerlain Vetiver or Caeser's man.
    Also, does the L'Occitane outlet at takashimaya carry its vetiver cologne?

    Thanks

    I have not seen Caesar's Man anywhere but check out Sephora @ Ion for Guerlain Vetiver. Or head down to Mustafa Centre. Btw Ion also has L'Occitane though I can't remember if they still have Vetiver.

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    Thanks.

    Have already checked out Mustafa Centre last week. Will probably do the rounds in orchard, Ion, takashimaya, and lucky centre.

    I was looking at some frags in ozcosmetics, esp the creed line.

    I was surprised by the difference in the photos

    Question: are they the same or merely imitation?

    I've bought fragrances of different brands from Dollar and Scents and they seem authentic to me. A word of caution though: I suspect that the storekeepers sometimes sell fragrances that have been used before. Often when I ask to try out a perfume that has no tester available, they would just nonchalantly open up a sealed box (as in wrapped in plastic), spray out some perfume for me to smell, and then reseal the plastic.

    I can't confirm whether they actually go on to sell those used and resealed fragrances, but once when I bought a fragrance from them, I could have sworn that there were fingerprints on the bottle when I opened it. The bottle did seem full, but one or two sprays would not have caused a visible difference to the liquid level anyway.

    I suppose that's how they keep their prices low - by saving money on testers (which they sell to customers).

    Just updating this thread...

    Hide-and-Seek has moved to 71 Bussorah St. They have added Tauer to their fragrance lineup.

    Escentials (Tangs, Paragon) now carries some Amouage line. But these Amouage bottles come with new slim cheap-looking caps which imo threw the proportions off.

    Tom Ford now has a fragrance counter in Tangs, lvl 1.

    Yes, TF is finally here!
    But they still have a few scents that are not available, e.g. TF Extreme
    The price for the 250ml decanter is $799.
    If anyone is willing to do a split, please let me know!

    Where I can find Amouage in downtown? I remember I did not see in Tangs

    The Escentials counter at Tangs now carry Amouage after the renovations, but probably not the full range available. The outlet at Paragon has a more complete selection of all lines.

    Hi Bambino, sorry for the late reply. I had not visited the Armani boutique so I am not sure what it carries.

    That said, many brands in SG does not carry their full lines: e.g. for some strange reason, Tom Ford Beauty did not bring in Black Violet; the Guerlain counter now has many exclusives, but does not have LIDGE and so on. So, I am not surprised if the Armani boutique does not bring in the Armani Privé Les Eaux.

    Yes, Hide and Seek is nice, with a rather good collection of hard-to-find scents. I recently visited it just to test Histoire de Parfums.

    Yah, Great! I'm interested in Humiecki & Graef and Tauer. Very hard to find in Asia so I'll be happy if I can pick one of them

    Hi Guys, I saw the updates that Guerlain now carries the exclusives collections. Does anyone know if they carry L'heure de Nuit and if so is it at the Tangs store or Takashimaya. Also is the Dries Van Noten Par Frederic malle out yet in Singapore? (in Malmaison boutique or Dries Store at Hilton Hotel). I'm going to Singapore this friday and i really hope these 2 fragrance are available there.

    Thanks

    Default Re: Singapore

    Oops, this may come a little too late for andreas2x, but L'Heure de Nuit is at the Tangs Guerlain counter (with all the other exclusives).

    Dries van Noten is only out next month (according to ST Urban) at Malmaison. I am not sure if it is available at Hilton.

  19. #49

    Default Re: Singapore

    Thanks for the reply maque, yes Dries van Noten is not yet available at malmaison. and so is L'heure de nuit. I was at tangs, they only have the tester but the SA told me that they don't have stock and it will only come around April.

    On the side note, the price of Guerlain L'heure de Nuit is not so much different from the US price (I was counting it with the California Tax) and so is Tom Ford, still cheaper in the states around USD20-25. Chanel les exclusives on the other hand, the difference is major. about USD 80 even with tax refund.

    Yes, unfortunately a lot of things are not cheap(er) in Singapore.

    Sorry to hear about the lack of stock for L'Heure de Nuit.

    Don't be sorry =) at least i still get to test it. Also Singapore is way better than Indonesia in term of finding niche.

    I'm looking forward to visiting my favourite Singapore fragrance haunts later this year. I wonder if I'll be lucky enough to bump into any Heely?

    Is LIDGE available anywhere locally?

  26. #56

    Default Re: Singapore

    Heeley is not available in Singapore, sadly. Well, not that I know of yet.

    LIDGE also, does not seem to be available in Singapore. The Guerlain counter at Tangs carried the tester initially, after the completion of the beauty hall renovations, but have since hidden or removed it, since they do not actually carry stocks of LIDGE.

    Thanks Maque, much as I suspected. But then again I thought hot climate and everything. Luckily I will also be in Madrid, and I believe I can find Heely among other delicacies at Nadia's perfumeriea. I'm beginning to suspect the prices in the Big Noodle are as bad as here

    This may be a little late for bambino, but Armani Privé is now available at Tangs Beauty Hall, with:
    Les Eaux (Figuier Eden, Oranger Alhambra, Rose Alexandrie, and Vetiver Babylone)
    La Collection (Ambre Soie, Bois d'Encens, Cuir Amethyste, Eau de Jade, Eclat de Jasmin, and Pierre de Lune)
    La Collections des Mille et Une Nuit (Ambre Orient, Cuir Noir, Oud Royal, and Rose d'Arabie).
