Not sure about Europe but I recently went to an outlet store that carries cosmetics and Ralph Lauren fragrances. They had tons of Purple Label sitting there. I don't remember the price but i think it was around 20% off retail price.
It wasn't only available in New York. I saw it 2 years ago at Neiman Marcus in Chicago.
thats a bunch of bull. yes it is a little more exclusive than the rest of his frags, but it can easily be found in higher end dept stores ala Neiman Marcus, Saks etc . . . and of course in the RL stores.
I don't think you will like this scent. They went berserk with their signature oakmoss theme with PL. It's headache inducing on me. One dimensional and thin, unless you spritz a lot on but still, beyond salvage.
