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 ...
