^^^ I thought it was in the 90-100$ range for a 125ml bottle. I could definitely be off on some of that, but I don't think it's near some of the more exclusive Guerlain line's prices.

Perfume Shrine article about the new Cologne du Parfumeur, all of the Guerlain eaux are being rebottled with the names of their creators to match the new one.
All five of the Guerlain Eau de cologne in production now carry the name of the perfumer on the label a la Frederic Malle. I am very glad to see Guerlain doing this as I am a big believer that these talented perfumers deserve their name on the bottle. As I've said before this time Thierry Wasser truly shows he deserves to have his name on the bottle next to the Guerlains who created eau de cologne previous to him.

Experimenting with the EDC labels is probably one of the least expensive ways for LVMH to create some buzz around their new product - this too shall pass. I can't imagine that the LVMH marketing department will ever mess with the Shalimar and Mitsouko labels.
I think this idea of labeling the Eaux with the signature is reasonable enough. Only ONE perfumer has created a Nahéma, but four have created an Eau (like some compulsory rite of passage). The Eaux are not distinctly linked to a certain perfumer's style like the grand perfumes are, and so maybe this signing of the Eaux is a way of compensating for that.
So is Neiman Marcus and/or Bergdorf Goodman the only place this is for sale in the US?
Any other poeple who have tested this yet?
Yes, I have a bottle of Cologne du Parfumeur. I find it very pleasant and wear it especially after an evening shower, before going to bed. It's green, mildly floral and a bit musky. Not sure I'll replace it when the bottle is over though.
I had this on yesterday-- quite unisex. I loooove the opening lemony notes but they fade fast. I don't think I would buy a bottle, because I don't like to respray quite that often.
Well, now that summer is fading I can safely say that I love Cologne du Parfumeur. My 100ml bottle is down to the half way mark and despite having a handful of other fine EDC options, including a couple of the Guerlains, I just keep going back to it. There is absolutely nothing hip, trendy or groundbreaking about this one - it is simply a great EDC with it's own distinctive shot of green (as advertised) that feels great to me. It does have that 'I wouldn't mind a sip of this' vibe about it, I can see how they could concoct a cool refreshing drink that mimics the notes.
I tried this yesterday. I liked it, but it reminded me of Mugler Cologne - which I own. So I don't see the need to purchase another similar fragrance.

I still haven't encountered this anywhere yet. I had no idea Guerlain was going to keep this Eau Cologne in such a limited distribution - whereas you can buy Imperiale, Eau de Coq and Eau de Guerlain everywhere! Very strange.
Oh well, there's always next summer.
Resurrecting this thread from a year ago.........
I smelled this at Neiman's today, and it is a very fine cologne. Smooth and very well balanced. A classic cologne in the best
tradition of colognes such as Guerlain's Imperiale. If I had spare change in abundance I would pick this up. It smells great.
This one has major longevity. I have a feeling that there is a base note that some people are anosmic to. It's not overpowering ever, but I can smell it for a good 8 hours after application, unlike any traditional EDC. If I apply it in the morning, it works really well as a base to what I'm wearing that evening long after the top and mid notes have burned off.
This is a wonderful fragrance IMO.
I do like this one, despite being too light on citrus and too heavy on Mugler's soapy-green. It's almost like equal parts PDN Cologne Sologne & Mugler.
While I still hold much of my initial opinion of this one (essentially Cologne Sologne, Mugler's greenness, and some classy bergamot/floral subtlety) .....I now want to buy it...anyone know the best and/or cheapest source for either a bottle or large flacon ??
Neiman Marcus has it on their site. 100ml for $108, and that appears to be your only option for size. I remember sniffing this at the Michigan Av. store a while back, but don't think it's in stock anymore. Likewise, I haven't seen it on any discount sites.

http://1000fragrances.blogspot.com/2...umeur-new.html Actually he does outright accuse him of borrowing heavily from Morillas. But, so what?
I notice the similarity to Mugler's green note in this fragrance, but it is only a part of the final product. I enjoy wearing it and now even more than Mugler Cologne which seems to have lost any connection to naturalness to my nose. But Cologne du Parfumeur is very different from Mugler and functions on a much higher and delicately balanced level, imo. It is a cleansing and stabilizing cologne; even if parts of it are stolen from bits of this and that. What creative person doesn't borrow greatly from everything that has gone before.
Back to your question I don't know where to get it cheaply. I got mine at Nieman Marcus. If they offered it in a larger bottle I would be first in line to get the largest size.

A little added incentive
I was just plain lucky BTW, I think they just sent one of the 500ml bottles out here with the initial launch shipment and one of the SA's mentioned it was at the office.

I have yet to see Cologne du Parfumeur discounted anywhere, but I love the stuff and believe it is worth every penny of its full retail price. I bought mine at the Saks flagship store in NY (it was $98 back then).

French retailers have some of the Guerlain colognes available in large bee bottles (500 ml) from their websites. For example Marionnaud carries Eau Imperiale in 500 ml at 206 €, 165 € with a -20% coupon (very easy to get), free shipping to France. That's 32 € (= USD 40 or GBP 26) for 100 ml, a nice deal for a split. Plus, the look of the bee bottle is stunning.
The only problem is that... they don't carry CDP.
