I hope this finds you well. I just wanted to confirm that you and your friends will be here at Barneys this Saturday October 6th at 10:00am. As I mentioned when we spoke, I want to make this fragrance experience something memorable for all of you. We will serve coffee, tea and pastries.
Also, I contacted Editions de Parfums by Frederic Malle and they will send a guest speaker from Chicago. She is a very knowledgeable person. I tried to get Mr Malle to come to Las Vegas that day and talk to all of us about his fragrances but he had a prior commitment.
Please let me know about how many people will be here that day and if you have any ideas or special requests for that day. We will have our get together at a private mezzanine here in the store

Finally, after that we will head over to the Christian Dior boutique, for our final destination of the day and even more fragrances / refreshments. Dior will have sample bags for all attendees, as well as wine (red/white & champagne) and chocolates to munch on while we shop. Here's the email from our Host, Massiel Cofino (a Basenotes member also - her screen name is massy03):

It was great finally getting the chance to chat with you. We're excited to host this for your group in our store.
Yes, we have the entire collection, all 13 of the La Collection, so you'll have the experience to see them all at once. And yes, we also carry the Eau Sauvage Parfum as well as the Dior Homme Intense that is limited distribution.
If you have any questions before then, give me a call or shoot me an email! If not, I will see you guys in October.

1:30 - 3:30 - Saks Fifth Avenue & Nordstroms
Afternoon - Free time
The Food Court (located in Level 3) in The Fashion Show Mall is located at 3200 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV - link to Map/Directions here: http://www.thefashionshow.com/ (Just click the link and scroll down to the bottom of the page and click 'Get Directions'). The Sample Swap is very simple and it was a lot of fun last year at the Basenotes Meetup in New Orleans - just bring all of the fragrance samples that you do not want anymore and feel free to swap them with your fellow Basenoters.
Saks Fifth Avenue and/or Nordstrom's will be the only pre-arranged shopping destinations this day (although anyone is more than welcome to explore the other stores on their own). There is no pre-arranged meeting with these stores, but the Basenotes group is planning on shopping/browsing together and we will allow this day to be less planned out and more flexible/casual.
