"Modern. Luxurious. Ultra-feminine. An unexpected blend of black violet and lush white flower blossoms, touched with sensual musk, sandalwood and amber." I was totally enchanted by this description of Kenneth Cole's latest eau de parfum for women on Nordstorm's website but also put off by the high price.
So you can imagine my delight when I walked into Taj Kashmir New York Inc (a perfumes, colognes and cosmetics store on Broadway in the Chelsea area) and found Black retailing for almost half the price advertised on various retailers' websites! The shop is full of interesting beauty accessories from silver earrings to fancy belts. TKNY is owned by Indian/Pakistanis but the sales folks are Indian, Mexican, Chinese and Korean. I was pretty impressed by their knowledge of women's perfumes and their ability to pick out various fragrances for me depending on my preference.
Next time you're looking for perfumes, ditch the duty free shops and head to Broadway in Chelsea instead. I'm sure that Haleem or Kamal will entice you to pick something nice smelling that you haven't dared to try before. And at their amazing prices, it's a great way to try out many different perfumes!
