    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).

    I`d never saw Coromandel and Sycomore as easier or pretty, and they are available in 75ml.

    Chanel are probably finding that they'd sell more if they offered smaller bottles. Economic times and all that.....

    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
    Though I agree that it's great to get Exclusifs on a smaller bottle, I can't help but think the price is unfair.

    The 200 ml is retailing for how much these days? $210?

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

    I'm definitely gonna try Sycamore now that I can get it for a reasonable price.

    I need me a sample on the double!

    Yeah, I've been reluctant to try them all since I don't know what I'll do if I liked them all!

    While on topic, out of the line which one smells more masculine?

    IMO, Sycomore, Coromandel and Eau De Cologne <---unisex very easy

    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.

    Add to those the Bois des Îles, which is like an Égoïste Light!

    How about Cuir de Russie? I think can also be unisex?

    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. It was a free sample, but comes in a beautiful little presentation box, with its own booklet. Not sure whether to use it up, or keep it as a collectable.

    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 ...
