    Default Why is Dolce & Gabbana "By" so expensive?

    I've always wondered why this fragrance is so expensive? There are many many discontinued designer fragrances, but for some reason this one is able to demand 300+ for 50ml.

    I can't figure that one out either. It wasn't that good to begin with.
    It has a peculiar lily & coffee thing going on, if I remember right.
    It's probably the oddity factor.

    I was trying to get this and finally did it last year!!!It is a nice coffee note in it and is quite good enough one scent
    I got the 50ml perfume in a gift set (body lotion +gel douch) and the price was logical ..around 50-60 euro!!!

    I think it's discontinued, so that's probably the reason for the unreasonable price.

    > Because its absurdly hard to find (found mine in a corner shelf in a small store for a fraction of what it costs nowadays -- thank god for their ignorance)
    > Because it's actually pretty good, certainly different from most new designer offerings. Lasts pretty long on me too.

    Same thing happened with TM Pure Coffee. I see them on Ebay going for $150 ~ $200, with plenty of people bidding on them. Discontinued fragrances will do that after some time goes by.

    And then sometimes a big batch is found, and you see a bunch on ebay for low prices, for a while, and then eventually it goes back up. So, if you are patient, you might get lucky, but I think this one is too popular for that.

    As I said earlier today, I found a bunch of these today. Would be willing to trade for Knize Ten.
