I work in an extremely expensive shop so I know it.
Not me baby. I drive a 78 Ford pickup that ain't worth $3,000 and buy fragrances of all prices. But I love CC X regardless of the cost. Bloody ridiculous. We have people who damn fragrances because they're expensive. There are so few worth gettting excited about, if I find one I genuinely like, I'm damn sure gonna buy it. You tellin me if I go out and buy a Lamborghini Mallardo that I'm just doin it because it's expensive? Drive one and I guarantee you won't feel that way anymore. It's usually poor people who spend their time talking about this crap anyway because they've never been free to truly seek out the things they're curious about, although the desire lurks strongly inside of them. I've been filthy rich and dirt poor. I DO KNOW. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
Hey Pluran, I wasn't referring to you, I said "many" people, not "all".
The truth is that, if something is expensive and considered of "high quality", people would want to buy if first, then try hard to like it. I've been on many Ferraris, felt uncomfortable. Honestly I perfer to drive my mortal Golf in a trafficked city. But this is another story which doesn't have that much to do with what I was talking about.
But again, I am not saying that ALL people will buy things only because they are expensive. I am not in that category for instance. I agree that in many cases prices do say something, but not all.
