    Please, for the love of humanity, would everyone stop with the mediocre (mainly) multiple ‘luxury’ scents?

    • lucasai says:

      How something can be called luxurious if it’s released in the number of 5 at a time. Luxury perfume should be released alone I think. And not every few months if you ask me.

      I wonder how will they do. To me they look like kind of tacky…

    • Robin says:

      It is getting comical, but whether it is yet to the point where casual fragrance consumers are noticing is hard to say.

      And of course, it is within the realm of possibility that these are just fabulous. Can’t say they sound compelling though.

  2. Rictor07 says:

    i dont think these will do well if that is the only size they come in. The bottles are pretty lackluster looking as well.

    • Robin says:

      In all fairness, it’s a lousy picture…will try to replace w/ a better one when I can.

  3. VanMorrisonFan says:

    The cost…yikes. I love bergamot….but no way am I paying that kind of dough. 125 ml is a tiny bit more than four ounces. Very impractical size for many consumers.

    • Robin says:

      True, although they’re not after a market that thinks in practical terms.

    Estee Lauder! Oh no…!

    • Robin says:

      They were with L’Oreal before. If it were my brand, I’d rather be with Estee Lauder.
