Apologies if everyone already knows about this, but at least four of Chanel's perfumes from its Les Exclusifs range are now available in human sized 75ml (2.5 fl. oz) bottles.
I picked up a bottle of Sycamore at Saks 5th Ave. for US$110.
Apparently they only came in a couple of days ago, and most of the SAs (at least at Saks) didn't even know about them.
Good news in my book because 200ml of anything is a lot of juice
I don't know much about medicine, but I know what I like. -- S.J. Perelman
very good news indeed
Hurray - yippee ! This is great !
Did you saw a bottle of Cuir de Russie at this size?
Hope that they sell the 75ml online too
What are the other 3 perfumes that come in this size??!?!?!?
I hope they have them here in the US too .
My friend is going to Paris end of this month and I have asked her to get me a Coromandel. I would assume, if it's available in the US, it SHOULD be available in Paris?!?!?
Any Parisians out there?
This is good news indeed,
now, if somebody would tell
me that N°22 is amoung the
four, I would be über happy!
I guess they'll all be avalible
in this size eventually?!
Thanks again Gandhajala- just happy -it's less juice ! There were rumors about EDPs coming out .
This is great news, thanks! How does the 75ml bottle look?
I'm back in London now, but if jet-leg doesn't catch up with me too soon, I'll send the SA at Saks an email and try and find out which are the other 2 perfumes that have been released in the 75ml version. Of course, I'll let you all know her response.
Hope that they launch all exclusifs in 75ml in future. And one can wish that they do in future a coffret with even smaller sizes, like the 15ml of hermessence collection. It`d be great!
In the UK there are 15ml "parfum" available, only 4. Cuir de Russie is one of them. Maybe they are available everywhere? They are on the UK website.
This is good news.
And I assume a good business decision as well!
If I remember correctly, these are the four: Coromandel, Sycomore, Beige and Eau de Cologne.
Definitely no Cuir de Russie or Chanel No 22!
Great news - I've been eyeing the Cologne.
Ducky, I wouldn't say dull, but they are less adventurous... And it's easier to sell "pretty" than something with a stronger character.
I had read somewhere that Coromandel and No. 22 were their bestsellers.
The 15ml parfums are a different 4: Cuir de Russie, No 22, Gardenia, Bois des Iles
This is seriously the best news I've heard all day. Best news all week, even. Maybe even EVER*.
(*Yes, I am only slightly exaggerating
This is very good news.....Thanks so much for the update.....Gary
I guess this also means the the Les Exclusifs collection is now available at Saks; I was under the impression that they were previously exclusive to Chanel boutiques and Bergdorf Goodman only.
Alas, there's no online ordering info yet at either Saks.com or BergdorfGoodman.com (or even Chanel.com, for that matter).
Great news... what the heck were they thinking with those 200mls anyways!
Chanel are probably finding that they'd sell more if they offered smaller bottles. Economic times and all that.....
Oooh, I am so getting Sycomore!
Do they still have those groovy magnetic caps , I love those
While on topic, out of the line which one smells more masculine?
Thanks. I'll have to check those out tomorrow.
Good news, thanks for sharing it.
Wonderful news indeed. This will allow many people to add some truly fantastic fragrances to their collections. Personally, I love having the 200ml "tank".. or maybe I've just gotten used to it.. but I've avoided buying 200ml flacons of some in the collection (example: 31 Rue Cambon), surviving on decants, just because I'd seriously never use more than 200ml of it in a lifetime. 75ml is a good compromise
Great news, more bottles to get! Thanks for sharing
Oh yes, Cuir de Russie, too!
Personally, I'd never thought the 200ml bottle overpriced. Is it a lot of juice? absolutely. Am I glad to have the two tanks that I own (and hopefully a third)? again, absolutely.
But for people who don't question the prices of Amouage, Xerjoff, heck, even the Creed boutique prices... $210 for 200ml puts the Chanel in the same price structure as a mass, department store release.
I'd been on the fence about Sycomore though, not really ever wanting a big bottle of it. This is good news for me in that regard!
If anyone's interested, here's a photo of the new 75ml bottle (Sycomore) next to the regular 200ml size bottle and a 5ml sample bottle. Apologies for phone-picture quality
Coromandel in a smaller bottle? That is really cool.
Well, I like the look of the bigger bottles the most.
I'd rather have seen them just make a smaller version
of the big ones, instead of this thinner one ... maybe
that's just me?!
Thanks for the photo, Gand!
Thanks for the pic Gandhajala. The new bottle looks a little elongated - wonder why they just didn't keep the proportion .
I don't think the 200 ml bottles were overpriced at $200 - free shipping too if you buy from Chanel online- it's just the sheer volume of it .
Also,I guess I am one of the few who loves Chanel Gardenia then ! *LOL*
Wow, I never realized the samples go for $40 on eBay. I scored two (Sycomore and Cuir de Russie) from the lovely SA at Bergdorf's in NYC last month and the die-cut packaging is indeed lovely. Guess I'll hold on to them, even if knowing that selling on eBay would practically cover the cost of one of those gorgeous new 75ml bottles ...
