    I've updated my swap and wish list -- please check and let me know what you're interested for me to bring. It's a rather long list, so I may not be able to bring absolutely everything!

    It was a pleasure meeting all of you today.
    Hearing about your love of perfume, your favs and your recommends.
    I use my YouTube channel as a way to talk about perfumes to others but it was refreshing to have conversations about perfumes and your passions.
    I owe some samples on some fragrances I talked about today.
    If you are interested in a sample, please contact me, it would be my pleasure to make and send.

    Epapsiou, thank you for organizing this, you went above and beyond.

    ^ Great meeting you and your SO, MegaMav. And yes, double-cheers to Epapsiou for driving hard to make this happen. My legs are achy from all the walking and standing today, but in a good way. And better yet, my nose was exercised even more. Always terrific to share the passion of perfume with other folks in person. So glad to have finally been to Twisted Lily and Osswald's. Looking forward to another day tomorrow!

    My hair was a bit prickly, being due for a cut, so more of a soft thorn -- I was not in photo-op form, but I had to roll with it.
    I was flanked by 2 Osswald's SA's, then there's Terri and Christine (she was just another customer who was drawn to be part of the group through lunch).


    @MegaMav - glad you got home in good time; hope it was a smooth ride enough to nap on. Thanks for the coffee referral! Do you buy that through a local retailer or on-line? If you know Peet's coffee, how would it compare?

    I am not a coffee drinker, the lady is.
    It can be had on Amazon, not pricey stuff either.

    It was brilliant meeting and spending the day with you all. It has been my experience that perfume people are some of the loveliest, most generous there are and everyone reinforced that yesterday.

    Thanks to everyone, especially to Epapsiou for putting this together.

    Seconding this with heartfelt thanks to epapsiou. It was a pleasure meeting everyone and I hope we can meet again. As well, the small perfume stores really know how to put on a party and we were enthusiastically welcomed by Twisted Lily and Osswald, with refreshments and a lot of kind attention. Many thanks!

    On our way to Barneys we saw these newly weds stopping the traffic (and the tourist bus)for a perfect shoot.
    I wish our group had that photo bug.

    The weekend went off without a hitch. It felt like we reached critical mass to justify Twisted Lily and Osswald having prepared refreshments for us, which made it festive.

    This was my first visit to Twisted Lily. It's a perfect little shop that makes good use of space and has so many houses to try. I bought a Histoires de Parfum sample set. It was so exciting to see Cazaubon and FiveoaksBouquet down from Montreal, to meet tdem, and to see New York meet-up veterans epapsiou, IsoESuperman, and Cytherian.

    This was my second visit to Osswald, and I love the ladies who work there, Josie and Daisy; even more so since they served us mimosas. They have a nice sampling service I plan to use. Cazaubon's friend Peggy joined our group, plus MegaMav and his better half, and we got a Basenotes reader who was visiting the shop, Christina, to join us for lunch. Good times.

    After lunch, we were sucked into Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys near the southeast corner of Central Park for the rest of Saturday and again on Sunday. I got samples from Le Labo, Malle, Chanel, YSL, House of Sillage, and a bag of goodies from tdem with some Tauer, Goutal, and others; a nice boost to my sampling backlog.

    MegaMav - The only I Profumi di Firenze fragrance Barneys has at the moment is the Vanilla - Vaniglia del Madagascar. It's funny to see a line with only one bottle represented, but I confirmed with the staff that it's the only one they have.

    After three meet-ups, I still haven't visited the fragrance district, whatever it is, and the subject of Korean food and karaoke never came up - I'll have to make a special trip. Stand-alone boutiques can seem redundant when the shops we visited have everything, but I'm curious to try some of them anyway.

    Profumo di Firenze, I will be sure to get a sample to you somehow. I should have brought some, but I was already packed tight and borderline heavy.
