Son of a civet scraper, I just checked online, you are right !
I was at Neimans 2 weeks ago and they hadnt increased their prices then. I guess this was to be expected after Lutens and L'Artisan bumped up the cost of their juices 2 months ago. Apparently shifting massive quantities of 4oz. Virgin Island Water (the recent best seller) didn't satiate Creed's thirst for the american green.
I have only bought retail twice: SMW and Neroli Sauvage. I had received too many "uneven" bottles and decants of these, so decided to take the plunge and purchased 1 oz fresh bottles from Saks and Neimans. No more overly fruity-berry SMW or turbo charged bitter orange Neroli Sauvage for me.
