    Default Ormonde Jayne Price Increase

    Just went out to the Ormonde Jayne website and saw that they have increased the price on all their EDP offerings to 68.

    There was talk of Ormonde Jayne having a US website, which would avoid the UK taxes on US customers. Has anyone heard any more news on that?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    If I recall correctly, Zizan was originally released with the 68 price tag while all her other releases were still at the old price. I found that to be strange at first, especially when there was a discount offer for Zizan upon its release.

    Maybe trying to salvage back the money lost?

    After some research, I stand corrected - Zizan's original price was 64. The other offerings were for 58. But Zizan was, initially, more expensive than her other EDP creations.

    The Zizan discount was for 10% off, which would have brought down the price to 57.60 - more or less in line with the prices of the other EDPs at the time. Discount link here:

    Although the discount wasn't widely available, based on this alone, I was pretty suspicious about Ormonde Jayne's pricing strategy for Zizan.

    In a bad economy, I would have expected fragrance prices to fall but the opposite seems to happening. Generally speaking, prices seem to be running 10% - 20% higher today compared to what I paid a year ago.

    Well, firstly, the increase would compensate any loss in sales and, secondly, it's a great way of making certain lines even more exclusive. However, a 10 increase for most of Ormonde Jayne's fragrances is way too steep, IMHO.

    I don't disagree with you, but her pricing is still in line with the Andy Tauers and Serge Lutens of the world.

    No, that's a very good point.
