"V" and "C" for men just don't warrant those high prices. The fact is, they're so mediocre, I doubt I'd wear them if I found a bottle under the Christmas tree.
Quite true !
I was so miffed about the longevity of Clive Chrstian's X for women I emailed Clive Christian's office in UK . I didn't expect a reply but they did .
They said because of natural materials , the batches vary ( sounds very Creedy ) .
I also noticed that they have changed their bottle design very discreetly and is probably not noticeable to most people who are not looking for it.
Old design - notice the little 'o' in the middle of the 'coat of arms ' I put an arrow next to it ( not sure if the arrow is showing up though... )
New bottle- what mine looks like. No "o" .
I know it is a small difference but whenever there is a change in bottles, I think of reformulations.
