  8. Re: Wondering why Gucci Guilty gets all the love?

    It's very simple. Gucci pays out big money to have the sales associates push Guilty, and because often times people act like sheep, they buy right in to it. It has nothing to do with quality.

    Re: Why buy niche?

    Generally EDPs do last longer, but that is irrelevant to the niche/designer debate. Designer houses make both EDTs and EDPs and niche houses make both as well.
