  6. Re: Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille worth buying? Who owns this bottle/decant?

    I don't know why it being pricey is always mentioned when this fragrance line is discussed. The average Niche bottle is smaller in size and usually just as, or more expensive.

    If anyone was wondering why AdG is not in the top 10 of Amazon, it's because they do not sell AdG in 3.4 oz. If they did it would undoubtedly be #1. I had to get mine at Perfumania.

    All Creeds are very good, but you shouldn't be buying them blind. The only safe blind buys IMO are Aventus, Millesime Imperiale, and GIT, but sample always.
