    It’s a nice idea.

    At the same time, I’m not intrigued by the description, and the bottle looks ridiculously cheap. I think I’ll just go send them a donation instead.

    • Robin says:

      Gotta agree on that bottle — not compelling.

  2. RuthW says:

    If only 13.5% of proceeds go to the Susan G Komen organization, what happens to the rest – infrastructure?
    I support this cause but will choose to do so directly because I know my math works out 100% in the foundations favor.

    • Robin says:

      The company they licensed their name to gets it, and presumably also covers their costs.

    I am in for anything related to breast cancer funds….if it comes here I will buy it…I will find somebody to give it to!

    ps: love the concept of a perfume for prevention of breast cancer

    • RuthW says:

      Agreed – I think the concept is great, just wish more of the proceeds were going towards the Komen organization.

  5. Tulip says:

    As a breast cancer survivor, I hate this!!! TPR’s PR concept is to help spread ‘awareness’ (they are a business) – which is not the same as research!

    I thought this was a flanker for Pretty by Elizabeth Arden because the cap had that kind of flower.
