Angelique Noire by Larkin Small & Guerlain

Remember Your SAs

It’s pretty common in the world of the perfumista to laugh at and denigrate the ever-humble sales associates working the fine fragrance counters of the world. It’s true that they are often ignorant and overly pushy and annoying to the introvert. However, if you find a good one, keep her. (Or him).

Colleen Hovsepian at Neiman Marcus is a keeper. During the current pandemic, everyone’s bottom line is suffering, and if you’ve got it in your budget, Colleen at the San Francisco Stockton Street location is a great gal to give the commission to.

Be well, fragrant friends.
