        Eep! $275 for 50ml? These had better be phenomenal. That's quite a jump from Keiko's standard range. For my bank account's sake, I think I'd better give these a wide berth but wouldn't mind getting my hands on some samples. I spotted these on her website the other day but no notes are listed as yet. Anyone know more about those?

        **EDIT** My bad - have found the info on Lucky Scent!

        Not that I'm that much into maths but hey, 5 Bespoke Sampler Coffrets is $125 x 5=$625 (and I *mean* it is all in all 7 x 50ml EDP full new collection), but if you do really need those *gorgeous* bottles (again 7 x 50ml EDP) you have to throw 7 x $275 = $1925. This is plain three times sick ...or a scentaholic FIND! Actually, I like some of KM scents (Ume, Iris, Peau de Peche from main collection) but this way of marketing is a bit *oversprayed* if you get what I mean...
