    Default Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle raising prices ;'(

    I was just in Barney's New York (in Boston) purchasing a bottle of Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire. They informed me that Malle will be raising prices significantly across the board within the next few weeks. Get it while it's cheap ;')

    My 1.7 oz. bottle was $150.00 today.

    I suppose there were too many riff raff buying his scents-- remember the comment about not wanting to smell like one's maid!

    But this pushes Vetiver Extra. away from my plebian pursestrings, and for that I am truly saddened.

    This must be one of the inevitable consequences of the recovering global economy.
    The sales of luxurious goods & expensive cars have increased significantly during the last few months and the brand owners cannot contain their greed anymore. The pricing mantra has always been 'to get the maximum out of the customers pocket, that he's willing to pay'.

    Come to think of it, who'd stop wearing Vetiver Extraordinaire or Carnal Flower just because the price went up by say 20%?

    Me for one. There are only several thousand other fragrances out there to choose from. I won't be buying the Musc Ravageur I've been planning on buying unless I find a used bottle somewhere.

    For those who are interested --

    You can still get most of the Frederic Malle 100ml bottles for around $165 + shipping [conversion from UK pound] from Les Senteurs. (after tax break for int'l customers) But yes, it seems FM's price has increased worldwide as you could get it for about $140 for 100ml shipped a month a go, which was quite a bargain IMO.

    The FM scents I enjoy and don't have in my wardrobe are VE, French Lover, and the majestic Carnal Flower. Will I get them any time soon? Probably not!

    It's really OK. Mallle can take those juices and spritz all of them up where the sun doesn't shine on for all i care. There are other equally if not more beautiful fragrances out there. Some of us have our heads screwed on right well enough not to be taken hostage by any fragrance house. Anyway if I love it, I'll buy it. 'Affordability' is a secondary consideration.

    Btw, if a housekeeper wears a Malle fragrance, I must say she/he does have pretty discerning nose!

    I think i have so many fragrances at this moment at my wardrobe that if all niche and mainstream houses decide to increase suggestively their prices, if they depend of me to keep alive they'll die poor.

    Some of the editions are so worth it ... Im sure that MR and Carnal Flower will always be with me . But saying that there really has to come a point where they price themselves out of the market , they should proceed with caution TBH

    News Flash!!! Mr. Malle, the only thing more inflated than your prices is your ego! Get a grip. I hate to rain on your parade, but the fragrances I have sampled from you, are at best middle of the road creations!
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    I think the main concern shouldn't be the price increase but whether or not any of them have been reformulated...

    You're right, 100ml Carnal Flower went from $300 to $320 and Musc Ravageur $210 to $225.
    Good thing I bought in Feb. and March.

    The € prices on the French version of their website seem not to have changed. Unless the website has not been updated, it's possible that the $ increase is due to a change in the exchange rate.

    The prices haven't changed at the store that exclusively sells the Editions de Parfum line here in Vienna either. It's probably due to the exchange rate -- the dollar hasn't been this weak against the euro for at least about 2 years.
