    Do you know if the LE Serge bottles will be available at the usual places, i.e Aedes, Barneys, etc?

    If they are like the ones pictures on the Palais Royale website (with the gold scroll motif)…wow!…I think those are really beautiful.

    V, I really don't know. If I remember correctly, the last limited edition bottles (the snowflake ones, I think, that you could also get monogrammed) were only available in Paris.

    lushness of what liquid? I think some rhapsodic copywriter lost their train of adjectival thought on that one.

    My suspicion is they mean “marine” or “aquatic” and just went a little overboard (apologies for the really bad pun). Either that, or they just mean they added some water, and you will have to pay extra for it.
