    I totally agree Leesee, that's one of the reasons we chose it.

    I never thought I'd get excited about planning a trip to LV, but I soooo want to go to this. I hope I will be able to join you. NOLA was great, not just because it's a great city, which it is, but because meeting other Basenoters in real life, sniffing together and getting acquainted, was just so memorable and fun and a bonding experience that meant a lot to the people who went, even though it all went by in a whirlwind and some of us are even now probably still digesting it. I can't make a commitment to the LV sniffa right now because of various kaleidescopic things going on in my life...however, where there is a will there is a way. Don't count me out.

    Kumquat, I think KC Retreat has been pushed to 2013.

    On another thought- add Penhalighans to the list of available lines in LV
    I've been there done that -- many times. I live close to NYC so those same perfume houses have boutiques that are only an hour away for me. Would rather spend the time and money some place else.

    That being said I think this is a great idea for those that live on the West Coast.

    One of the main reasons I have wanted to go to LV was to see Liberace's museum. Now it is closed! WAH!!!!

    eeeehhhhhhhh, something about LV just weirds me out. Maybe one too many childhood trips there watching my drunken parents gambling away my inheritance? Oh, yeah, that's probably it.

    BUUUUT 2013 in KC is going to ROCK!!!!

    And I'm looking for an excuse to go to NYC this summer....anyone? anyone?

Also, in years past it has actually been more affordable for us to travel to Europe than to destinations in the western USA from the east coast. That is probably no longer the case. I don't have a problem with LV as a destination, just hope I can make it happen.
    If you ignore the casinos, which I did, the shopping is wonderful: Tom Ford, Hermes, Chanel, Guerlain.

    i do want to come! But I really cannot say if I can. The Q doesn't want to come, he cannot bear another couple of days in perfume shops. He said he loved the people he met at NOLA but the perfume shops ruined it for him. He really cannot deal with almost all fragrances, and a perfume shop really makes him ill.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    Just wanted to say, glad to see ya Ovincze!. After more thought, Vegas really doesn't sound like my cup of tea, I really have no other interest in going except to sniff, lol. I will think about it more.

    Can't wait for the details Mike. My accommodations and my leave time are already reserved. Looking forward to sniffing, shopping, lounging, and some nice meals with lovely Basenoters. Avoiding the casinos, is very easy to do.
