Anyway, if you're in constant search for the perfect scent, check out the West Village's little hidden gem, Aedes De Venustas. Aedes also features a pretty easy to navigate online site, if you're like me and well, lazy.. but do check out the store if you get the chance. Its like a perfume sanctuary that I wouldn't recommend to people with allergies. The store is dimly lit, with deep red and gold accents, antique furniture and of course, walls and walls of perfume! They have brands such as Annick Goutal, Creed, Diptyque and one of my favorites, L'Artisan Parfumeur.
The store is also nice for finding a unique gift with their killer selection of candles and room fragrances, or if you're overwhelmed by the choices, they have gift certificates too.
Don't be fooled though; finding a great perfume does not mean you can stop wearing deodorant in the dead of summer while you're sitting next to me on the subway. Fuckers.
