    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.
