Black Friday Stress Relief

If you're in NYC and out braving the Black Friday shopping crowds, stop by one of my favorite shops, Le Labo, for a little relief:

"As an echo of the Buy Nothing Day which is an informal day of protest against consumerism, Le Labo decided to do the "SELL NOTHING DAY". That specific day, our boutique of NOLITA will sell nothing but knowledge, and share its passion with everybody. Because "the more you know, the less you need", we believe that the more you know about perfume, the less you need a naked girl on a ad page or Calvin Klein on a bottle to choose a perfume: you'll be able to make the difference between an industrialized mass-marketed perfume and a high end creation that is freshly hand made. We have decided to do this on BLACK FRIDAY, the busiest shopping day of the year. So on November 24rd, we have decided to slow Walter Hagen suggests "you are only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry, and be sure to take the time to smell the flowers along the way".

We invite everybody to come on that date for a day of workshop where you will learn more about perfume making."

You must sniff the Tubereuse 40 if you're in the store...although you'll have to come back another day to get it!
