Any other standouts from your Bloomies raid?
I thought Sicilian Leather by Memo was very interesting.
I also found out that the Holiday sale starts Friday, so I'm going back then, and I'll check out more.
I was pretty much abducted by the SA at Acqua Di Parma who made me smell everything, so I was going a bit nose blind.
I even forgot to try the new Hermes.
ADP had 4 exclusives that she had me smell, numbered 1-4. They were nice spring/summer scents but pretty subdued. I was saying I can't imagine they'd last long, but she was telling me they are pure oil??

Are those the Note di Colonia exclusives?

Not sure, I'll get back to you on Friday...
I plan on checking those out again.
I'll be a nerd and snap some pics.

She also told me she'd hook me up with a travel atomizer w/purchase.
I really like that Oud.

An SA at Neiman tried to hype up the ADP Note di Colonia series a couple years ago. Tried a number of them amd was underwhelmed. The hype is limited run Baccarat flacons, each one composed based on a famous Italian opera, premium ingredients, masterful compositions...blah blah blah. At north of $400 retail.

So does Bloomies put fragrances on sale for Memorial Day?

That makes sense, they were in cool bottles.
The sale is hit and miss, not all of them will be.
ADP will be 15% off, and since I work 2 minutes away and eat lunch there most days, waiting is no big deal...
I have a $200 gift card to blow.

Okay, I have decided 100% that I am never going to bother with the Zoologist samples I bought ever again. Does anyone want them? Free. You would just have to pay the (minimal) Canada Post small packet rate.

Sure, I'm in Canada. I'll take them. I'll PM you soon.

Edit: Can't seem to PM you. I'm not smart with this forum.

Nice haul.

I called the SF Bloomies fragrance department and they have no sales going on this weekend. Odd. I wonder if it's only ADP at your store?

She told me Wednesday that her sale started Friday, which would make me think it’s a company thing.
I didn’t see any adverts in the fragrance section.

I would head down there if you are wanting some ADP. Just tell them your brother was at South Coast Plaza and the sale is on, and they need to at least match it.
Not counting the freebies they hooked me up with, my receipt says “today’s savings $81.83”

Nice. I'm good on ADP for now. Wearing Cedro di Taormina today. Another lost gem from Duchaufour and JC Ellena.
