Some good news for local perfumistas and shoppers in general; Nordstrom is coming to northern New England, to Natick, MA. Mark your calendars, the Grand Opening will take place on September 7, 2007 at 10 am!
We've heard good things about their sample programs and this will widen the available selection of fragrances......

In related news, the venerable Filene's Basement in downtown Boston will close down according to one source at the end of August 2007 in its 99th year and for a duration of two years to undergo renovation works. This is the place which reportedly invented discount selling. Last time we checked they still had a sizable stock of discounted Annick Goutal fragrances.
We hope they will keep the photographic mural of turn-of-the-century Filene's Basement storefront in the subway with the Belle Epoque hatted ladies and gents going about their businesses!
