    I'll try to meet up with you guys on Saturday afternoon and join the counter-crawl. I'll keep an eye on this thread for further developments.

    Looking forward to seeing you all!

    The meet up is about a month and a half away.

    kalli, have you contacted any of the perfume shops / stores to let them know we're coming? It might be a good idea to have some sort of an 'organized' plan for the group.

    Kalli contacted me and I will work on this. I just got back from vacation. I am assuming people want to visit Barneys, Neiman's, Saks and such. Should I also try to schedule Hermes or Chanel's and the like? There is also a new small boutique in the Mission that carries regional houses along with the big stuff that we could hit Friday night or Sunday. Any suggestions or things people want to do?

    kswer,

    Thanks to you for handling this!

    BTW: There's also Diptyque on Maiden Lane, and it might be worth a visit to Jacqueline, though it's not worth trying to set it up with Jacqueline.

    Saks= Kilian, Clive Christian, Bond, Penhaligon, etc.

    Neiman's= Guerlain(lots), Dior Privee, MFK, Atelier, Creed, etc.

    Barneys= Lutens, L'artisan, Malle, CDG, so much more.

    Chanel exclusives are at the Chanel store as are the Hermes.

    I have heard of the Jacqueline store but have not been.

    I was thinking of having everyone meet on Fiday night in the Mission at Tigerlily and do Union Square Saturday. Any thoughts? Who can commit? I would like to talk to Jonathan at Barneys to let him know a group is coming.

    Not sure I can join you on Friday night.

    What time and where are we meeting on Saturday? I can make it around 1 pm, or even much earlier if I know enough in advance to have a chance to switch some other things around.

    So looking forward to meeting you all!

    Union Square is the main shopping area for San Francisco. All the upscale shops are there. Saks, Barneys, Neiman's, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom's, Chanel, Hermes, Diptyque.
    So far it seems that there is not enough interest to have to forewarn the shops that a group is coming. Maybe we just meet-up and determine where we are going based on what the participants would like. I think we should check out Tigerlily Perfumes in the Mission on Friday night and then meet at Union Square on Saturday morning. But I am up for anything. Let me know if anyone needs anything set up for them.

    Thanks kswer! I like the Mission on Friday & Union Square on Saturday idea.

    I am definitely attending! I'm cool with a small or big crowd of Basenoters.

    My initial map of (most of) the perfume shops around Union Square. Works great on the desktop, pretty good on a phone browser, still a little odd when read through Google Map Engine app directly, oddly enough.

    Put me down as a maybe, but thought my map could help. IF you have anything to add to the map, any interesting details, please let me know and I'll add it in (even if it's just a great restaurant in the area, or if it's some great perfume shops in other areas of the city beyond union square). Whether I go or not, I'm happy to add in all the shops you all plan to hit

    Also, just FYI: Uber works fantastically well in SF, they're normally priced below a taxi, and I don't think I"ve ever waited more than 5 minutes. Definitely consider it as a fast, easy (though higher priced than busses) mode of transport.

    Hi all! I've been away, but am still very much interested in helping out, especially with Saturday around Union Square. I've PMed a couple of the planners and reached out to Tama from the SF Sniff as well. Saturday will be awesome!

    Why don't we plan on meeting at 11:00 on Saturday? That's pretty much when places open...

    11am Sat 9/19 is good for me too, but where are we meeting up? Barneys or Cafe Madeleine down O'Farrell towards Market St. Wd seem the most logical places...

    I'm working to put together some plans. We may likely end up at meeting in the morning at Diptyque like we've done before, because they like us there and don't mind the crowd. But I still need to talk to them...

    Default San Francisco Meet-up, September 19-20

    There will be a Meet-up on September 19-20 for Basenotes members. We may also have people from the SFsniff group join us. The tentative plan is to meet Friday night in the Mission. Saturday would be the main event. We will meet in Union Square around 11 am and hit em hard! I am trying to get a head count so if you read this and are coming please pm me and let me know. If people want to go out to dinner Saturday night and have a samples swap let me know and we can figure out a place to eat. If anyone has questions about transportation or such just ask. There are a lot of people from the Bay Area on this board. I will post more details as things firm up. Thanks.

    This is a sticky on the Female Discussion group. Mods, could this be one also on the Male Side?

    I may meet up with you guys on Saturday if my schedule allows...I hope so.

    For those that do not know, Folsom Street Fair is Sunday and 400,000 leather clad (and less) fairgoers will be in The City. Hotel space will be difficult. For those interested in that sort of thing, it is quite the affair.

    As for the Folsom Street Fair, I kind of assumed that's why some of you were coming to town...

    Regarding Saturday, I've checked in with a couple of places and Diptyque would be happy to have us meet there in the morning. They're getting in a new line of 34 Essences Insensees, including some sort of scented calendar (??). Barneys has been warned and they're looking into a possible gift with purchase.

    All is moving forward...
