I am new to the fragrance game, and in my recent searches I've learned about Chanel Sycomore. The Saks Fifth Avenue in my town had a box, and having read about it for 3 days I was excited to go pick up a large 6.x bottle of the stuff! Actually, I was excited, this was going to be THE fragrance for the year! So after hemming and hawing, and repeated visits and much help, I purchased Chanel Sycomore. What a beautiful product it was, loved the simplicity of the packaging and the bottle. Sprayed my arm, and what a surprise! Is THIS what a vetiver smells like?! I had no idea! Well, Miss Saks employee, why does it say No. 18 above? Is Sycomore a No. 18? Nope, wrong insides. They put the wrong bottle in the box (it was sealed in the plastic straight from whatever distributor they use)
Needless to say I was disappointed, though not in Saks at all, they were fantastic and humored me through all my insanity when it comes to finding a new scent. They promptly refunded my money, and then attempted to order it for me. After a few other issues (don't want it ordered to my house, and some other things) I decided I'd just go into New York and see for myself what the scent is like and purchase there. The VERY nice women at Saks informed me this wasn't the first time this has happened with Chanel. The moral of the story is not to get too excited lest the bottle is in your hand and says xxxxxx awesome cologne. Thanks for listening!
