    Default Can "civilians" smell the diff. between cheap & pricey? (video)

    Five-minute video from ABC News. Includes Chandler Burr snippet. From Nov. 13, 2007.

    Watch video here.

    Just found this old thread. Belated thanks to Quarry! The video is still up and is good fun.

    From the interview with the perfumer who composed Yu: "... I really had the luxury of time to really hand-pick -- or I should say, nose-pick -- every ingredient..."

    No, you should not say "nose-pick." You should never say "nose-pick."
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    Lol! You can pick your friends...

    I like what Chandler Burr said, "The $5,000 is marketing."

    Interesting, she didn't ask the passers-by which one smelled more expensive, but which one they preferred. I'm not surprised they preferred the one that would smell familiar. (I didn't recognize the bottle chosen for the cheap, drugstore brand -- anyone recognize it?)
