    Angry Amouage, Jubilation XXV 30 ML $50 bottle @ Beautyencounter

    So I was lucky enough to get one of these-anyone notice that the gold lettering on the bottle which reads the following: "Amouage [Amouage Logo]" has faded and/or rubbed off? Kinda odd, as I have used very little of the juice and barely touch the bottle. Has this happened to any of you? Take a look as you may not have noticed it.

    Believe me, I am still happy as hell to have a bottle, the juice is F-ing amazing, but this still kinda irked me.

    The logo and "Amouage" on my two bottles are also slightly faded, almost like it's rubbing off. Nothing wrong with the juice though.

    I agree this is good stuff. I didn't know how good it was until I bought blind on this special. Had I known I would have bought more than one bottle. Still, very glad I got the one bottle to enjoy.

    As one who cares more about the juice than the container this issue doesn't bother me. Especially when the juice is this darn good.
    I do appreciate that there are those to whom the bottle is important and I acknowledge that this could be annoying to them.

    The bottles I received do not have that problem.

    I saw a tester bottle at Dubai airport which had faded lettering. The juice was amazing though. Am gobsmacked you guys got such an awesome deal. Wished I had gotten wind of it as would have jumped at the sale.

    Just so everyone knows, they now have the 30 ml bottles on Amazon. So anyone who did not get an opportunity to purchase it at beautyencounter.com and still would still like one they have them at Amazon for 50.00.

    I wasn't able to locate that particular listing on amazon. Could anyone post it - if it's still there?

    Hmmmm, could they only have had one, it should have said that if it did. I'm in a rush so I can't look thorougly. I know I found it by go in the fragrance section and then narrowing it down to male and then EDP. Hopefully mrblowtorch has the link, but unfortunately I don't have the time to further investigate. Good Luck!

    Sorry, I was set to post the link to Amazon, but I went back to the one I found, and they're sold out - I may have snagged the last one. I don't blame you. If someone else had grabbed it, I would hate them too.

    I have a sample I've been using. I love it, but it's not worth $245 a bottle. $50 is mighty fine, though. I live in Hartford - grew up in Windsor.

    Im sorry guys, I didn't realize when posting that they only had one. Most of the times on Amazon, when they get down to that limited of supply they will have a note by the price with something like "only one left in stock, will be getting in more". O by the way since we are sharing where in CT we are at, I live in Bethel, but Ive been all over from Wilton to Bethel.

    We forgive you guys this time. Don't let it happen again!

    I probably should have pulled the trigger when I knew they were available at Beauty Encounter - and I had the same two samples of it then that I have now - so I have no good excuse.

    For those of you who know this scent well, there is in the late drydown a kind of birch-tar / styrax like note - which to me is fine but I thought back then that it might render it less 'wearable'. It definitely gives the fragrance a backbone. Would anyone know exactly what the name of that note (or notes) is?

    I was able to snag one and it arrived yesterday. Cute bottle in a black velvet pouch with the Amouage logo in gold. Wore it last night to dinner, amazing stuff. Finally an incense that doesn't go all sour on me. I can still smell it this morning. Thanks for the tip!

    Sweet deal. Too bad shipping to Europe is $25, plus 19% VAT really spoils it. Anyway, I like XXV and it's damn well made, but it's not something I'm craving badly.

    Dmarino---Maybe because it's "in stock",,, not sure of your question.


    I actually ordered 2 of them no problem.
    For those who can't find it or whatever. There are both mens and ladies EDPerfume for 50.00 plus $5.95 s/h
    This is a STEAL considering the 1.7oz bottle goes for $245 plus s/h !!!

    I went to Amazon and entered 'Amouage Jubilation' in to the search bar,,,it came up, no prob,,, but be careful to order the right gender is all. good hunting.

    Beautiful Perfumes is basically the same company as Beauty Encounter. I ordered and received my XXV from them through Amazon about a week ago and everything was fine. The only minor difference I see is that mine came in a maroon velvet sachet bag and most people reported here they got a black sachet bag.

    I pretty much ordered it because I like most Amouage frags I've tried ... and also the good feedback I've read here. But I do feel that even for the good price, it's overrated. I personally feel there are better incense frags out there. I gave it a full day's wearing about a week ago and really wasn't blown away with it. Not a whole lot of sillage and somewhat similar to most incense frags I've tried.

    It's gone now...Amouage Jubilation doesn't yield any results for a 1oz Travel spray on amazon.com

    Update: Sorry folks I must have done something wrong but I can surely see it now.

    TheAttorney had posted that he called them at that they hadn't any in stock (and hadn't in awhile) - my question was to him (ie. if he he asked them why it was showing up as in stock)

    not sure where you are looking, but I JUST NOW called up the same search "amouage jubilation" (make sure you spell it correctly) and it came up. I am going to wait and see what happens, it still shows in stock and those $6hr employees don't know everything. The one who just posted said it got there just fine. I wait to pass judgement. Amazon is usually damn good. I'm hoping for the positive.

    I ordered one awhile back - probably going to pass this time. I posted this here because I remembered this thread and that there were a lot of people looking for this.

    Gents and TheAttorney, I hate to be a spoil sport and look like mister no fun, but I must ask that we keep the swear words off the forum.

    We're all adults here, we're not prudes either, and we all know about the frustration that can be involved with things like this, but I must ask you please.

    Thanks!

    Seriously... what is worth getting so worked up for? OK so you called amazon, other people want to wait and see what happens - that gets someone upset enough to become unhinged on a message board?

    I receieved a PM from someone telling me they'd ordered the XXV so I placed an order as well because I'd felt like I missed out on something when I missed the original deal.... however I was thinking about it and realized there are other things I'd prefer to spend the same money on. Therefor I canceled the order and replaced it with something that's both discontinued, getting harder to find, and was on a great special via amazon. Specifically, Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice 125ml for $42. I feel much better about this purchase.

    Yeah I can also easily find this one for 50$ on Amazon right now. I'll wait for some more information on this one.

    Well if you would try to look for it now mate....you'd be disappointed because 'Its out of stock'.....

    I am not sure if the people who've ordered are going to get it anyways or is there a refund coming their way.

    To answer your Q, I am not home now an the CPU I was using froze and did not think I posted 3x.

    Anyway, I am actually interested to see what happends tomorrow and whether they actually refund the money or not. I dont know why Amazon would post the sale if they were actually out of stock. Weird. I have no clue how some people allegedly ordered this over the phone, the supervisor assured me that they have not sold them in "months."

    The supervisor is full of crap. The return address on my box is clearly "Parfumery fulfillment, Huntington Beach, CA ... and postage dated "Dec 2". Also, the packing slip has "Beautiful Perfumes" right on the header.

    I would harass the bastard if I was you ...

    For what it is worth, I ordered this from Amazon on November 28 and received it, from Beautiful Perfumes, on December 2.

    I'm not sure how the non-Amazon sellers communicate to Amazon their inventory, but there may have been an uncontrollable delay there. There shouldn't be, since Amazon should verify inventory electronically with the vendor at the point of sale, but that might be part of the explanation. Amazon necessarily must rely upon the integrity of the vendor's computerized inventory system, which is clearly a liability. Whenever I want to buy something from Amazon, and Amazon itself is not the vendor, I usually try to cut Amazon out of the loop entirely and deal directly with the source.

    I can understand the frustration here. Amouage Jubilation XXV is great stuff. I tried it for the first time at The Scent Bar yesterday afternoon, and almost bought a bottle. But I don't usually like spending $245 on a 100ml bottle (unless it's Profumum, apparently ), so I will probably end up settling for a decant on this one. At some point, you just realize that you're only going to live so long and only have so much skin surface to dowse in smellies.

    I'm not sure if this is what TheAttorney was getting at, but on the beautifulperfumes.com they clearly state that you must place all orders by phone only. Now, I'm assuming that the same rule doesn't apply to orders placed through Amazon, because a few people have placed orders on Amazon and recieved their order. I don't know if this clears up that confusion or just adds to it, but I thought I should mention it. Oh the things that happen whilst away from BN. You guys all crack me up
