  2. Re: Why is Silver Mountain Water so underrated?

    Absolutely

    Was not underrated when this forum was young.
  3. Re: Will Diptyque ever release an Exclusive range?

    Their line is exclusive.

    When you release an exclusive line, it means you're making niche perfumes.
    Niche perfumes in addition to your 'crowd pleasers'.
