    I'm not based in the US and have only been there for the odd time. But I've heard similar (horror) stories from relatives and work colleagues that visit often. TSA-authorised bag openings, items damaged and in one case expensive laptops doing walkabouts and the likes...

    Can't say this inspires me to travel to the US. My fragrances are of huge sentimental value to me if anything.

    Thanks.
    I just can't believe this happened. I called the motel I stayed at, thinking I might have left it there, but they said no, nothing was found.

    Either the TSA person who left the TSA-inspection slip in my bag, or a baggage handler at the airport, took my two vintage Jacques Fath coffrets out and took them. They contained bottles of Chausuble, Canasta, Fath de Fath and Iris Gris. There was only a tiny bit of Iris Gris left in the mini bottles, but still enough to wear several more times and enjoy. I'm really upset about this. Just unbelievable...

    I had a 3.5 hour layover at LAX on Saturday, and LAX has been strongly implicated in theft of luggage items. So I'm thinking that's likely where my coffrets were grabbed from my bag. And I'm not wealthy, and I have a cheap, tattered soft-bodied old suitcase. So weird that they would look through my things and hone right in on those old Fath coffrets. Ugh...

    I'm so sorry this happened to you.

    It is weird that these cofffrets would be stolen, since few people would know their true value. Did they look like jewelry boxes perhaps?

    I found them tonight. Thank goodness...
    They were stuffed deep into my elderly father's package of adult diapers. lol. He and I were traveling together. I had forgotten exactly where I'd stashed the two coffrets obviously.
    Just so happy that they weren't stolen!

    Glad the coffrets are safe and sound, that's a huge relief.
