    No additional responses to my posts of this event in the Men's and Women's fragrance threads. We still need 2 or 3 more people to make this happen. I need to give a final response back to Merz by Sept 16...four days from now.

    I resorted to reaching out to friends I hadn't seen in 20 years (who happen to live a couple miles from Merz), and asked them to ask their friends if they'd be willing to tag along with us just for fun and perks. My teacher friends were kind enough to scout for attendees amongst their coworkers. People thought it sounded cool, but none cared to commit.

    Awesome!
    Looking forward to it.

Spirit said she preferred the 26th but didn't say absolutely only the 26th. So we are either 2 short for the 26th or we are 1 short for the 12th. It's a big commitment by Merz to plan this much for us and cater the champagne and pastries, etc. I want to be fair to them and have at least 10 people in attendance. We're very close, that's for sure!

    One last effort -- I put out a call on the forum that probably gives Grant tummy butterflies.

    Bringing things up to date amongst the Fragranticans:

    • NINaudio said he could do the 26th, but not other Saturdays. [I mentioned him in post #39 of this thread.]
    • Beth C posted this week that she'd maybe drive in from Missouri, but couldn't do the 26th.
    • Felicite34 pm'ed me yesterday asking me to keep her apprised of the chosen date. Generally, weekends are not great for her, but she might work out something.
    • Cricketapollo preferred 12th or 19th.


    Jux, if we're at 9 for one of the Saturdays, I suggest we go for it in hopes we might collect another one or two joiners before the day of the event.

    Okay, got it.

    Were you able to contact Spirit Rose and ask her if the 26th was her ONLY date (she said preferred) or if she could flex to the 12th?

    The reason is - if she (and you along with her) can do October 12 then these responses put us as 10 for October 12th.
    However, if she needs it to be October 26th then these results put us at 8 for October 12 and 9 for October 26.

    On top of this we have 3 maybes, that could join once the date is settled.

    Excellent! I'll start a new thread this weekend about it and notify Merz. In addition, I will message each person directly about the new thread so they don't miss it.

    You're probably waiting to hear back from Merz as to exact time, eh?

    I ended up being too busy over the weekend to start a new thread, but that's a good idea. I've already messaged them the date and I'll start the new thread once I have confirmation of the time. But I suspect it will be when they open at 9am on Saturday. Right now, here are the details to summarize:

    EVENT: MERZ APOTHECARY SPECIAL SAMPLING EVENT FOR BASENOTES MEMBERS

    Merz Apothecary was a great stop during the 2019 Chicago Basenotes Gettogether and they've offered to host another event for us. They have some new fragrances arriving in late September and October.

    They will have 4 stations setup just for the experience:

    Classic Fall Fragrances
    New Fall Fragrances
    The most weird fragrances
    A blind test table where the group can explore the fragrances


    DATE: Saturdays October 12
    TIME: TBD (morning)

    They will serve snacks and drinks (probably scones and champagne or mimosas) and will also provide some free takeaway samples.

    As a reminder, Merz is in the northern part of Chicago, in Andersonville, in a lovely little area that has a few great restaurants.

    The current attendee list is as follows:

    Me (Juxtapozbliss)
    Quarry
    Krooze
    Spirit Rose
    Ultravisitor
    Furriner
    Mitchmurr
    Hale
    Cricketapollo
    Sharif


    Maybe:
    Hale’s +1

    I've started a new thread with all the details here: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/469...rs-Oct-12-2019

    Event has been confirmed with Merz.

    If you are attending, please post confirmation in that thread. I worry some newer people here may not be checking Basenotes very often. Thank you!
