All I have to add in my current not-too-eloquent state is that the Perfume House is definitely worth visiting, and the perfume department at the Portland Nordstrom's is infinitely better than the one at the Nordstrom's in Palo Alto. I came home with Trumper Extract of West Indian Limes and Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey. And the Perfume House is ordering a bottle of Sutra Ylang for me.
(And of course we got maple bacon doughnuts. Mmmmmm.)
