    Default Las Vegas luck... with samples

    Just got home having been in Vegas since Tuesday at a national meeting and wanted to show off my samples. You guys may have heard me complain before that it's difficult to get niche scents under my nose (other than Creed and Bond) due to where I live so I was stoked when the opportunity arose. With a limited amount of time I was able to visit the Dior, Hermes and Guerlain boutiques as well as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barney's New York where I ran into a handful of generous SA's who loaded me up with the following.



    In the front lying down:

    Hermes
    Ambre Narguile
    Paprika Brasil

    Standing L to R:

    At Barney's I finally had the opportunity to smell Black Afgano and for all the talk about how weird and polarizing it can be, I really found it quite pleasing. Sprayed a shot on my wrist before I left and kept sniffing at it throughout the day. If it weren't so expensive I'd buy a bottle.

    Both are in Fashion Show Mall located across from the Wynn on Las Vegas Blvd (the strip). There is also a Nordstrom but their selection is crap. Neiman Marcus has Tom Ford's Private Blends, MFK and Clive Christian. Saks has Tom Ford PB as well as by Kilian.

    Barney's New York however is the "must visit". It is in the Shoppes at the Palazzo and carries Heeley, Byredo, Serge Lutens, Frederic Malle and Nasomatto among others.
