I definitely factor price when comparing/purchasing fragrances
I mean, for me at least, if two scents smelled very similar and one cost 10x than the other, well then you have cant put them on the same level can you. At least I can't
the way I look at it is that there is a reasonable threshold that exists, but not established, in each of us. If the price difference is say 30% higher/lower than the market then you can say it can be somewhat ignored and the juice is judged strictly on its components. However, if the price is 80% +/- what the average cost is, well then I think it becomes much more of an issue in deciding whether or not the fragrance is bottle worthy or not.
just my two cents
