    Default Flash Meetup - Osswalds

    Had been a while so we decided to meetup. We decided to go to Osswalds cause we had not seen Josie this year.
    Hat&Beard and I walked in the store together and were greeted warmly by Josie who was wearing Mousse Illuminee by Rogue and it was great on her.
    Cytherian joined us later.
    Osswlads has changed it bit since I last came and now they carry more lines including Creed and PdM.
    I think their vintage wall has grown a bit too.
    I really am impressed with the new Amouage offerings - Beach, Sunshine , Figment are all good but for me Portrayal is the best of the lot. I will probably have to get a FB.
    We went for drinks afterwards.
    A fun evening on a perfect day

    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.

    Sounds like a great time. Glad you all had fun.

    Living in Iowa, it’s kind of a bummer. There’s next to no chance that any other Basenoter’s live here, and we don’t have anywhere near the level of retail access that major cities do. We have department stores, Ulta, Sephora, and the discounters. I’m happy we have what we do, although I’d love to be able to walk into a store and see niche stuff.

    WOW. That’s some crazy ink lol.

    Btw I’d LOVE to smell Mousse Illuminee on anyone here but I reckon I must be the only one.
    As for Amouage I haven’t been moved by their fragrances for a long while now. Perhaps Portrayal might change that status.

    That's impressive, especially since Osswald doesn't even carry the Rogue line -- at least, it's not listed on Osswald's website.

    Cytherian joined us later.
    I hope you let him know that he's been missed around here.

    OMG The Shining tats! Wow...

    Josie is awesome. She and I laughed so much when I went all by myself when I was in NYC (meeting you epapsiou and Hat&Beard and cytherian and IsoESuperman at Saks and Twisted Lily).

    I smelled a whole bunch of Montale scents when I was there - it was nice having them all together in one place to smell.

    I have to get out there again this year when I'm in NYC.

    It was a fun get-together. Josie from Osswald's is terrific, as always. Fragrance world is so vast, there's always something new to experience and the ambiance at Osswald's is just about perfect. Only missed the mimosa this time.

    Cytherian? Hmmm... Cytherian, Cytherian. <strokes chin to try and revive memory>

    Yes, the name is familiar, but the avatar doesn't ring a bell.
