    Default Les Exclusifs: 75ml Now Available

    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 only saw Sycamore and Coromandel. The SA said 4 fragrances had been released in the new, smaller size, but in my excitement I forgot to ask which were the other two. The bottles had not yet been put on display: They were all still in a box behind the counter. Like I said, most of the SAs knew nothing about their existence!

    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?

    Just like the 200ml bottle, but slimmer, and about 12 cm high. Same label, same magnetic cap, same presentation box. Only thing I've noticed is the sprayer on my bottle is not so great. I guess time will tell whether this affects just my bottle, or is characteristic of these new smaller bottles in general.

    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.

    If I remember correctly, these are the four: Coromandel, Sycomore, Beige and Eau de 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.

    Well, potato/patato ... I just asumed, that it would be the big sellers
    which would get launched in the new sizes first, and I never ever in my
    wildest fantasy imagined, that EdC and Beige were Les Exclusifs bestsellers,
    that's all!

    Now if they would just offer *those* EDTs in the smaller bottles, I'd be thrilled. Well, not Gardenia, but the other three: I'd buy them in a heartbeat.

    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).

    Well, that's economy of scale for you. Still, $110 for 75ml isn't too bad. Sycamore is definitely worth 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

    No, it's not terrible. But for me, the $110 price tag just makes me want to raise the money for the 200 ml.

    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!

    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*

    Tee hee. One of the few maybe, but you're definately not alone. I remember being in a Chanel boutique once, chatting to a lady who spritzed her forearm with Gardenia and proffered it my way for a smell. I think I may have fallen a little bit in love...

    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 ...
