I love their blue bottles and wish I would find the line somewhere (NYC?) because i'm very interested in the juice. Anyone have any experience and thoughts about the line in terms of their style, quality, prices, etc (besides piper nigrum please, I've heard all about it already ;-))
There are a few Northern American stockiest that I'm aware of. You can order direct from LAFCO: http://www.lafco.com
. New London Pharmacy (also in NYC) http://www.newlondonpharmacy.com
, and the perfume shoppe (in Vancouver, BC & Scottsdale, AZ) http://www.theperfumeshoppe.com
also stock Villoresi.
Barneys began to stock some, but never got past home fragrances, IIRC.
Villoresi is one of my favorites. In addition to PN, Yerbamate and Incensi are part of my regular rotation. Even the scents I haven't been a huge fan of have struck me as being very well put together.
I've smelled the new Piper Nigrum, and it really lacks the strength and presence of the original version. I'm not sure what's been done with the others.
