    Default Strange issue with SL`s Chypre Rouge at Escentual

    Hello.

    I have finally set myself for purchasing this marvelous fragrance, and I will order it from Escentual; the place I have ordered before without a single problem.

    But now, I`m slightly confused. Take a look at this : http://www.escentual.com/cgi-bin/Esc...Catalog/101328

    What the heck??!!

    I mean, to my knowledge there isn`t anything but Haute Concentration version for real, but this info claims there to be regular EdP out of Chypre Rouge, as well.
    Really, has anyone ever pumped into Chypre Rouge other that in Haute Concentration??? I doubt.

    Heh, it occured to me, the cheap chap as I am, that if I order that 50pound bottle, they still would send me that HC bottle, since really, I am quite certain that is the only one available.

    What do you think? Should I take the risk, and order that "supposedly regular" EdP, believing that they will send me that Haute version anyway....

    Of course, I can ask this srtickly from the store, but I thought it would be more interesting to hear your opinions first, at least.

    I followed the link to Escentual and that's £65.00 GBP for a 50ml size bottle. Like you said it's just the only concentration available and is described as Eaux de parfum - haute concentration. They sell the same bottle at Luckscent and the description is the same so I think that is normal. Price is roughly the same too if you take into account exchange rates although of course it would be better for you to order from UK for Customs etc.

    I'm confused Pigeon - I only see (when I click the Escentual link) the Haute Concentration, not an EDP on the site, for sale??

    Yes, CR is in Haute Concentration - there is no EDP.

    I verified this at the blog Serge Lutens Nearly All The Facts

    It must have been a mistake - had you ordered it right away, they probably would have just sent it to you for the lower price, or else apologied and told you they'd made a mistake.

    Oh my God.

    It seems that Escentual people are watching Basenotes in regular basis, because yes indeed; that 50pound EdP has been dismissed. Hah hah hah!

    I don`t believe this. Really, when I made this thread, there was available Chypre Rouge EdP in 50 pounds, and CR Haute Consentration in 65pounds.

    Now things have changed, there is only available CR HC in 65pounds, and it is SO obvious that this spesific store follows Basenotes very clearly. (hmmm....perhaps some B`Noter gave them a bit help)

    I don't know... I just looked, out of curiosity, and I found both listed, with an EdP for 50 pounds

    Look at this older thread:
    http://community.basenotes.net/showt...ht=eau+fraiche

    Perhaps there are two versions, although other sites suggest that CR, DB and Cèdre were only ever produced as haute concentrations perfumes. Mysterious.
