    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,

    After that we will have lunch (either together as a group, or separate, let's leave that up to whatever you want, from Noon - 1:30, then back to The Shoppes for the Guerlain boutique. Guerlain sent us this email, in anticipation of our arrival:

    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

    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,

    Morning - free time

    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!

    Very excited! We have dual back-ups on the cameras, too - both my wife and I will be taking pictures.

    I am also looking forward to sniffing the new Shanghai. I thought that London was very well-done, so I'm expecting good things.

    Samples!!! OMG - I've got 'em. I'll bring 'em. I'm also bringing a bunch of empty vials and atomizers, so people can make up samples to share from any new acquisitions.

    PS to Auntie Knit - Big K is on the way!

    Thanks, shades!!! And we started off with a bang. I won't spoil Mike's write-up, but let me just post a couple of teaser pictures from our first store, Skins 6|2.

    Here is one RP, googl.plex1, one Mrs. RP, and googl.plex's gram, hanging out with the niche!

    (Guess which one of the four is the high-rollin' gambler..... )



    Here is one Mike Perez (and I'm saving the *great* picture that came after this!!!)....



    Plenty on the agenda tomorrow. Gotta get some sleep!

    lol! I have one Santa Maria Novella, Citta di Kyoto...gorgeous, translucent aura of a scent. It's presence in my collection is early evidence of my love for iris notes...

    OMG - I was thinking exactly the same thing as Mike when I looked at those. LOL!

    Thanks, lily and Renee! Here are some more teasers....

    My wife and Raul at Barney's....

    ....and all my buddies on the C.B. Untitled thread - O.M.G. - you will *never* believe what fragrance my wife discovered out of all the niche here that she loved, and actually dragged me over to smell (and which she had never paid any attention to at home, due to ignoring me the last month.....)

    L'Etrog.

    I was, like, - "Ahem, you aren't gonna believe this......"



    A then a wild-and-crazy BN lunch!!!



    ...and just a hint of the great time we had at Guerlain (you will have to wait for the fragrance report!!!)....

    OK. I will admit it. We had some champagne!



    ...and that's not to mention Dior!

    MUST. GET. SOME. SLEEP.

    Ah mes amis, what a good time at the meet-up! I left Warum, mike, matildaben & Al Gae still sniffing at Neiman Marcus around 3:15 pm and just arrived home after my 5.5 hour drive. I do have tomorrow off work for Columbus Day so will hopefully write up some impressions of some of the new things I sniffed (and bought- at retail- which is soooo unusual for me, so you know the scent souvenirs were special to me).

    wish you all could have been there!!!

    Just got home myself - and that "red eye" flight is *so* appropriately named!

    We had an awesome time at the sample swap, and all sorts of unloved samples got rescued by new owners! We got to share some very cool sniffs, too. Wish I could have stayed for the final shopping spree, but my wife wanted to see Red Rocks again, although this time the hiking was much less intense than the last time.

    I'm still a bit blown away by the whole thing. It has really changed my view of fragrance. In a good way. But I feel like I want to be more of a participant - more of a "perfume lover", as the book is called - and less of a critic and an observer. I have things I want to say - things that are struggling to make their way out - and now I have to say them. I want to *feel* fragrance - not just think about it.

    I bought some new scents, and I want to get into them deeply. REALLY deeply. TOO deeply. I just feel like my view of fragrance has changed somehow, and I need to understand it. I can't wait to get started on this new chapter of my fragrant life, that somehow happened because of this get-together.

    Great photos! I'm posting on mobile so can't type a lot. I will report more and post photos from the sample swap when I get home.

    Glad all who are home got home safe!

I have things I want to say - things that are struggling to make their way out - and now I have to say them. I want to *feel* fragrance - not just think about it.

    I bought some new scents, and I want to get into them deeply. REALLY deeply. TOO deeply. I just feel like my view of fragrance has changed somehow, and I need to understand it. I can't wait to get started on this new chapter of my fragrant life, that somehow happened because of this get-together.
    Red, I share your feeling of wanting to feel the fragrance and get into it deeply, and not feel obligated to think too much about it; of being a participant, and not a voyeur. What else is fragrance for but to experience deeply? Over the past couple of years or so I have sampled hundreds of fragrances. Few of them have captivated me on that level you speak of. There have been fragrances that I have admired, have loved for a time, but when I find one that totally captivates me it is a rare occasion and I like to enjoy it to the utmost, and analyzing it does not contribute to the visceral or even a spiritual enjoyment. Naming things separates us from them.
