    Dear Mike,

    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

    Kind Regards,

    Hello Mr Perez,

    Everyone here at Guerlain is anxiously awaiting you and the rest of the Basenotes guests to arrive. There are some noteworthy pieces available here at the Palazzo that I think the Basenote members would be excited to know about.

    1. Shanghai

    2. La Petite Robe Noire - You will also be able preview the exclusive size available later this year at the event.

    3. The Desert D'Orient Collection- Songe D'Un Bois D'Ete, Rose Nacree Du Desert, and Encens Mythique D'Orient

    4. Shalimar Ode a la Vanille- A new addition to the Shalimar legend.


    For those that are interested in some limited edition or numbered pieces:

    1. View the "Guerlain Heritage Case," a coffret celebrating 180 years of fragrance making history.

    2. View the "Giant" (2000ML) Shalimar Parfum Initial

    3. Preview the scent for "L'Abeille Aux Ailes Argent Reve De Lune" or "The Bee with the Silver Wings Moon Dream".

    Hi Mike!

    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.
    Kind Regards,

    Sunday 10/7

    Morning - free time
    12:00 (noon) - 1:30 pm Lunch and Sample Swap at The Food Court @ The Fashion Show Mall
    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.

    The End!

    Just an FYI, in Fashion Show mall, there's a Grimaldi's pizza, which is fantastic. It's made in coal ovens and they supposedly import water from NY to keep it tasting authentic to Brooklyn, where it was founded.

    Very excited! I'm really looking forward to hanging out with all of you! I seriously think this is going to be a blast. And I *love* that we have some locals who can really give us the insider scoop.

    This is a great schedule! I'm very impressed that the stores are preparing to greet us, too. Thanks for all your work on our behalf, Mike and matildaben!

    Dearest Basenoters,

    I have been scheming and conniving a way to get to the meet-up for some time now. Unfortunately, business travel has taken me to the opposite side of the U.S. I am stuck in a perfectly nice town with absolutely zilch in terms of fragrance shopping opportunities. It is a truly wretched state of affairs. Best wishes for a magnificent meet-up. Please share your experiences with the site, for all of us who wish we could be there with you. Thanks again to the organizing committee. You have done a stellar job.

    Massiel did say she will make me a sample bag also even though im not going to be with the group so that will be cool.

    Any local restaurants that you would recommend? They dont have to be locals only, just some place thats not garish and touristy. Mexican, Viet, Sushi, "New American", good burgers besides In&Out or Phatburger? Thanks for any help man. You can email me if you would like, heperd@gmail.com since we're off topic here. Or maybe we're not, others may want to know for this weekend.

    Sure, here's a handful of suggestions, all bare my stamp of approval, lolz. They can all get pretty busy, so plan accordingly.

    Carlito's Burritos - New Mexico style Mexican
    Ellis Island - good ribs, right off the strip
    China Mama - kind of a drive, but worth it if you like Chinese
    Yama Sushi - fresh sushi and I'm pretty sure they do an all-you-can-eat
    Lotus of Siam - excellent Thai, you might get lucky with a walk in but I'd make a reservation, looks kinda sketchy from the outside but don't let that dissuade you
    Bachi Burger - Asian inspired take on burgers, pretty popular
    Grimaldi's - my favorite pizza place, a little pricey but supposedly they import the water from NY to make the dough
    Carnegie Deli - NY style deli sandwichs, on-strip

    Haven't found Pho I can fully recommend yet, but it's not for lack of options. For buffets, I'd stick with the higher end places like Bellagio, Caesars, and so forth. And for the oh-so-important coffee, there's an Espressamente Illy right by Barneys in the Palazzo and if you'll travel for coffee, Madhouse is where I get my fix.

    +1 on Ellis Island. It's a shithole, but worth the food. Might have to wait up to an hour when you go because they don't have a lot of tables. Also, get a Players club card there. You'll save $3 on your meal.

    I love Bachi Burger. Ate there last week at their W. Sahara location.

    The Chinese buffet lunch at the Bellagio is wonderful! This is not main buffet. Very elegant with a pastry room of its own!

    Was just at Ellis a couple of days ago, they put a new dining room in, maybe tripled the size. Bad news is there's still a wait if you go there during peak hours.

    If u want burgers, two of the best are I LOVE BURGERS upstairs at the Palazzo (you can also check out the Dior and Guerlain boutique up there), and my personal favorite ... THE BURGER BAR upstairs in that little mini mall at Mandalay Bay.

    It was nice meeting everyone tonight! Brandy and I had a blast hanging out with all of you. My eye is still burning from getting commandeered by the Egyptian fella upon entering the store and getting a 20 minute dissertation on why I need that $175 cream for the dark lines under my eyes. The lines aren't black anymore....just red...hahaha

    The staff at Skins was very cool and the place is gorgeous! Not a lot of new stuff, for me, but I did fall in love with the new Francis Kurkdjian,Amyris Pour Femme which is IMO way better than the men's version. Bought some Claus Porto bath salts (in this wonderful almond scent). The bathtub in my room @ The Venetian is huge and desperately needed something scented during my next bath ritual.

    Off to breakfast and then LOT'S of sniffing!!!!

Bought some Claus Porto bath salts (in this wonderful almond scent). The bathtub in my room @ The Venetian is huge and desperately needed something scented during my next bath ritual.

    Off to breakfast and then LOT'S of sniffing!!!!
    Mike, just wrap yourself in those wonderful hotel bathrobes and enjoy your new perfumes!

    I wish I could meet you all, but will have to settle for just sharing those photos you all will post.

    I was glad I was able to hangout and meet everybody on Saturday, had a good time. It was cool to see that sort of enthusiasm in action and put some faces to names. Just out of curiosity, how would y'all rate the shopping in Vegas on a scale of 1 to 10?

    LMAO!!!

    Yeah, his lady accomplice did a number on my wife! She's still all wound up about not buying that stuff, because she told herself she'd find something cheaper from her favorite mail-order company, but I'm not sure if she found anything like it.

    It was awesome meeting you and your wife - I *really* enjoyed our conversation. My wife was obsessed with seeing that Tournament of Kings kiddie-dinner-theater (she's crazy in love with horses and horse-riding), so I wasn't sure if I was butting in or coming to your rescue when she started talking about you guys seeing a show with us (I mean, those things are not exactly cheap, either. And acting like a barbarian for 90 minutes and waving roasted-leg-of-game-hen at guys on horses is fun, but *REALLY*.... ) However, next time we're in Vegas, I'll give you guys some advance warning, and maybe we can do some dinner, drinks and sniffing, or something like that, 'cause I think it would be great!
