      Yes, added. (I missed that useful bit -- I've asked about international rollout/prices to will update)

      "Amber, cedarwood, amber wood, frankincense, vetiver, vanilla and oud", sounds very interesting but I am sure the price will quickly crush that interest for me.

      Wait, I thought Victoria was his daughter.

      I imagine legions of women in rubber Victoria Christian masks with the men's in one hand, women's in the other, releasing spray after spray as an audience claws its way out of the vicinity. Dogs collapse in allergic shock, car alarms go off, riot police in gas masks come in and are rebuffed by the cloud of noxious unisex destruction.

      230 for 50ml.

      If you're in the good old US of A that's $365 USD.

      Wow...I honestly would not care if the fragrance was really the best in the world, I would not pay that much for 50ml. I realize though this stuff is marketed towards the crowd who has the money to which case I say hats off Mr. Christian :)

      I know perfume should be judged by its merits, but I can do without the "fan" fare.
