    Default Got a lot of cash?

    Those hundred thousand dollar bills burning a hole in your pocket?

    No wonder that Neiman Marcus SA was pushing the No. 1 on me yesterday.

    Sorry if this is a repeat, I didn't see a thread on this after a quick search.

    "But Austin estimates that the high-end perfume market only constitutes about 1% of overall sales and warns that, "There isn't always a direct relationship between the price of a fragrance and the beauty of its impression." Of course, sometimes, there is. It takes 200 very rare ingredients to make one drop of "No. 1," including the ylang-ylang flower from Madagascar, Tahitian vanilla, ancient Indian sandalwood, and Florentine orris (ground iris root), which can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars a pound.

    for most of these perfumes, the high price is more due to the expensive bottles than the ingredients themselves.

    All of us basenoters should start our own combined line (based upon the wealth of knowledge around here) and cash in!!!

    Hmm, time to design the designer label. . . .

    If it holds 17 oz, it must be a big bottle.

    It doesn't look like it has a pump spray, so how would you apply it - splashing? Better not miss!

    Lets not forget that all fragrances are diluted in alcohol and all these expensive ingredients are diluted !!!!
    I do believe that if the makers did not make a fat profit on scent thet would not be in this business and yes the "lovely" bottle is these days more than ever what you really pay for.
    Good niche market scent have one classic bottle for all their fragrances simple - effective and elegant what else do you need ???
