    Default Are Knize fragrances just impossible to find...

    .. in the US? I accidentally dropped my sample of TEN in the toilet - just when I was starting to dig it.
    Does anyone know of a dealer here in the states?

    Thanks!

    I dont understand what is the point in offering Knize Ten in 100ml size and then again in 125ml size and then in 150ml size...

    I purchased Knize Forest from Les Senteurs last yr, but all they have at the moment is samples of it. They do have Knize 10 and Lady Knize. Also I won an almost full bottle of Knize Forest on ebay last yr so it might be worth it to check ebay occasionally.

    If we have enough people interested, someone in the USA can get a 1000ml bottle of Knize Ten for less than US$300 for Colonial Drug and do a ten way split of 100ml each...The savings can be phenomenal.

    Caswell Massey was the exclusive importer/distributor of Knize scents in the US but they terminated their relationship with Knize about a year ago. You can still find some stock in various retail locations but it's getting tougher. The best source I have found for the full line of Knize is http://www.thedifferentscent.de/inde...a&filter_id=29

    I wrote about it in a previous thread, but starting this Summer Knize has found a new distributor for their products in North America. I forget what the name of the company is off the top of my head, and I need to log off, but perhaps there is hope for us yet.

    Its not a deodorant spray. It is EDT indeed. There are some places that list Knize in 75ml, 100ml and 125ml. There are several BN'ers (including me) who would vouch for Colonial Drugs.

    Yeah - I've read consistantly good things on them here!
    Just seems a little fishy that all their caps are broken. I figured they were trying to sell me a tester at regular price...
    Anyone have a Knize Ten cap they don't want?

    I visited Colonial Drug last month and purchased a bottle of Knize Ten. Here's the scoop:

    • The bottle size is 125 mL.
    • The bottle I purchased didn't come with a cap or box. My guess is that Colonial came into a quantity of testers, but I didn't ask because, well, I was so busy looking at all the other stuff in the shop while the guy was wrapping up the bottle that I didn't notice it wasn't NIB until I was halfway across town. It wouldn't have changed my decision to buy, but I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get a box or cap.
    I'm sure the bottle was genuine because: 1) the cardboard sleeve that the bottle came in had a little sticker with handwriting that was definitely European, and 2) who would make a fake Knize Ten?

    Sort of, because while others are quite easy to purchase in shops and/or order online, Knize Ten Golden Edition is surely hard to find.

    Seems a somewhat incongruous distributer. As I recall it is some sort of marine products importer from Maine.

    Knize 10 seems to be in the same category to me as Chanel Pour Monsieur (not PM Concentre).

    Highly lauded scents that are not easily obtainable.

    I find sites that sell one or the other, but rarely is it a site I feel like I "trust."

    Default Re: Are Knize fragrances just impossible to find...

    I've never heard any complaints from anyone about Colonial Drug (which is where I got my bottle....also a capless tester, though not sold as one). Unless you go there in person, you need to order over the phone since their web presence if very limited. But they're good folks and sell good frags. And the K10 is absolutely authentic (having sampled it via the equally trustworthy, if a bit distant, Ausliebezumduft)

    There's something fishy about the missing caps thing. Probably not counterfeits, but something odd sticking in my mind with that.

    Might be similar to what retailers do with newspapers/magazines. They often rip the masthead off the unsold papers or covers off magazines to prove to the distributor that they didn't sell them.

    Maybe their stock was repurchased from another retailer who couldn't/didn't sell them.

    Not sure where one might purchase a case of "testers."

    But if it's the real stuff and full bottle, what the hey....

    Colonial Drug has an impeccable reputation. I have dealt with them on several occasions. They have always exceeded my expectations.

    I have no doubts they are a reputable outfit and don't mean to imply they aren't.

    There is something odd about everyone getting a bottle with no cap or box.

    I may be purchasing Knize 10 from them since they seem to be the most trustworthy I can find- cap or no cap.

    Let me add my voice to the chorus of praise for Colonial. They are wonderful, helpful people. A model business.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Splits: O'driu, La Via del Profumo/AbdesSalaam Attar, Nasomatto, Chanel Les Exclusifs, Profumi del Forte, Mona di Orio, Kurkdjian, Slumberhouse.

    I have spoken with Colonial and got the story on the missing boxes and it makes sense. If I like the sample, I will certainly buy Knize 10 from them.

    It sounds like a pretty intense frag.

    Thanks for all of the feedback on them. They indeed seem like a great resource for our community.

    for once it pays off to live in Germany fragrancewise. I can order Knize Ten, Gold, Two, Sec and Forest through an online drugstore. They also ship to the US, but the site is all German:

    I got the 125ml Golden Edition and 225ml Knize Ten for really good prices at http://www.parfumdreams.de
    They don't list US shipping costs, but you can always ask.
    I even contacted Knize in Vienna, but they were a lot more expensive. The 225ml Knize Ten is a splash btw.
