    Too bad it's out in the exurbia, but worth making an effort...

    Very close to me.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Was so bummed not to have seen this on the Fumerie website until a few days ago, after it was already sold out ...

    Someone told me Portland is having two events and there might be a few more openings for the later one.

    If there were at the time of your post, there aren't anymore. It's understandable. Like most perfume shops, it has a pretty small footprint and probably can't accommodate very many people at a time.

    Arielle Shoshana is a cool little niche perfume shop in the Mosaic District in Fairfax, Virginia near DC. I have been there a few times. Great customer service. Great collection of niche perfumes. I only wish they had a larger selection. Cool that they are hosting Luca Turin.

    Just back from the exurbia where I attended the book signing at Arielle Shoshana (it wasn't as bad as feared, the mall was 15 min walk from a subway stop). Very enjoyable presentation, the man is as funny and informative in person as he is in writing. A nice general intro (smelling for instance Auphorie), and then q&a with many random tidbits of information. Definitely worth going. LA and Portland BNers should really go if they get the chance.

    There were about 40 people, many more I would have expected. Who knew there were so many perfume lovers here in DC (beyond hednic, that is)? More should show up here in BN.

    We talked for half an hour, but I claimed not to have ever heard of Basenotes....

    Just kidding, I swiped it off of twitter, from one Kate Spritz.

    You need to evangelise people to the site guys - we'd love to have some more genuine fragrance-loving members here, so any new additions will be welcomed with open arms.

    Thanks for updating us and for the pics too.

    Good that I did not miss fellow BNers!

    I talked to a few people who knew of BN but were not themselves members. There was also member Somerville metro man (who is now apparently Maryland man), who used to post here but no longer does much, although he now has a very big blog himself, http://www.colognoisseur.com/

    I discovered Basenotes back when its fragrance review would show up top of Page 1 on Google searches. Not anymore, sadly and had been that way for the last 6-7 years.

    Btw, where are the selfies/ we-fies??

    Just got back from the Fumerie Thursday evening presentation. It was not too crowded, and everyone had a good time. I'm not sure if their Friday events are all booked up or not, but it might not hurt to give them a call and see.

    My girlfriend and I were there last night, too. I had a good time, and my girlfriend mostly did, too, but some of it was probably a little too "inside baseball" for her. So you came all the way from Bend for it? That's dedication.

    I'd flown over for my Birthday, and my sister had a friend who said "He can go in my place". We called Tracy, and she said "You guys all just come" so we were a group of four at the end. My sister's seen Bruno and Andy there too - Tracy and Andre really have it going on, out here in Portland.

    ( No Josh Lobb yet though, as I understand - That guy keeps a mindfully low profile.)

    Yeah, it's a really cool operation they're running. Their perfume swaps are a lot of fun, too.
