    Default Department Store (Designer) Purchase Ideas

    I'm looking for some ideas. I have some department store gift cards, but I have no idea what to buy. I've been in a few times and sniffed around, but there's not much in the designer realm that interests me.

    Any ideas for things I might be missing?

    I assume you mean dept stores like Macy in the US; more upscale ones usually have better choices. Estee Lauder has some gems: Azuree (usually hidden, and cheap. Citrus leather), White Linen (bright aldehydic), and then the Aramis line, that is, Aramis, Aramis 900, Tuscany and Devin.

    I see you are from Canada, and I've seen Chanel pour monsieur in Canada (the regular version, NOT the concentree). And Chanel usually distributes widely other great things like Cristalle (icy floral) and No 19.

    Finally, Macy in the US now has Lush counters, which means the weird, avantgarde Breath of God.

    I'd say stick to Chanel Tom Ford Cartier or Guerlain. They all make solid fragrances. Obviously there are exceptions but from smelling what's out there lately these houses definitely stood out to me.
