Update: Douglas Cosmetics, Union Station
Today I visited Douglas Cosmetics in Union Station. It was slightly reminiscent of a small Ulta store. This isn't to say that they didn't have some nice things available there. They (of course) had all of the typical fragrances such as Burberry, Kenneth Cole, etc. They also had a large selection of Bond No. 9 fragrances (including Bryant Park, Chelsea Flowers, Bleecker Street, Scent of Peace, Nuits de Noho, and Wall Street and a few others I can't remember) and a handful of Creeds (Love in White, Vetiver, Silver Mountain Water, etc.) They do have a few other designer frags that are somewhat more difficult to find, but older (Dior Higher and Higher Energy, Versace L'Homme, etc.) One big difference from Sephora is that they carry the cosmetics brands normally in department stores like Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Elizabeth Arden. Overall, the store is a bit small, but full of lots of things to look at. Oh! I had almost forgotten, they also have the Korres Body Water Sprays that Sephora dropped a while back. So, if you don't mind the floor rumbling and the sound of rattling glass every time a train goes by, it's worth a stop if you're there, but unless you love Bond No. 9, I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
