    Whoa, how much for the Curve Crush.............hahahahaha, you know I'm kidding. Seriously though, I've seen Gaultier's Madame at TJ also so their shelves can surprise you sometimes. Or is Madame a "dud" too?

    I was just at Marshalls, they had 3 different Tommy Bahamas, Azzaro PH, Ferragamo PH, Halston Z14, 2 Burberrys... any of those worth a blind buy besides Azzaro, which is usually there?

    But Yeah, bang is a great designer release, very green, spicy & woody without being cheesy or dated at all, I really liked it.
    I scored a nice bottle of Faconable last week. This is a nice fragrance with eau qualities. Innofensive and work-safe.

    Bang has been very discounted/affordable, for quite some time, on Ebay (I've been watching it, as I'm in the market for a bottle myself), so it doesn't surprise me at all that it's at TJ Maxx. Still, when I buy mine, I want the matching shower gel too.

    Yeah, Bang is nice stuff. It has actually done very well in some stores, according to what the SAs have told me.

    I know that some of the better stuff ends up in discount because of age, but I simply can't imagine that ANY Bang is expiring now. Has to be some other reason.

    I like Bang, but to me it was to similar to Polo so I passed(meaning I already own Polo).

    I would say Halston Z-14 is a safe blind buy, mainly because it's a classic, and it's cheap.

    Tommy's scents are regulars there but they receive really good reviews here. With warmer weather around the corner I'd say the Original (brown bottle) and Cool version are worth the try.

    Default Marc Jacobs BANG is at TJ Maxx

    Just a head's up. I really dig it and so does my wife. Great anytime, anywhere scent. $39.99 for the 1.7 OZ EDT. I bought mine off eBay a while back. Kinda stunned me to see it as my MAXX/Marshall's have had a crappy selection for some time now.

    Default Re: Marc Jacobs BANG is at TJ Maxx

    As much as I admire this fine fragrance, I think it was marketed incorrectly, and as a result hasn't found an audience, hence the overstock being dumped at discounters. A truly bizarre ad campaign, a cheesy bottle and juvenile name do not represent the sophistication of what's inside the bottle. This one could have been a great release for Gucci.

    Default Re: Marc Jacobs BANG is at TJ Maxx

    ^ Agreed. I asked a Nordstrom SA how it was selling, and she said it was a "tough sell" for most buyers. It's probably a case of defied expectations. The people who want a scent like Bang don't test Bang, and the people to do test Bang don't want an austere peppery wood scent.

    So this news doesn't surprise me much. Would have been nice if it succeeded.

    Is $39.99 a good price? Seems kind of high for TJMaxx,and it's only a $10-15 discount from retail.

    No, $39.99 is not a great price, but it is a very fine fragrance. To me, it's definitely worth that price. Matter of taste, I suppose. It just shocked me to see it at the Maxx so quickly. In my estimation it was better than any other designer release last year, including Chanel Bleu. Of last year's releases, only Aventus surpassed it, IMHO.

    FYI, that size is $55 at Sephora, so it's a good deal versus retail.

    I am just joking with you Chuck. The other thread was certainly not obvious as to what the topic was - unless you drilled down into it.

    It's been months since fallin into the local Marshalls. I remember, though, picking up a bottle of something (can't for the life of me remember what is was), seeing a 39.99 tag and thinking 'whats so great about this price'? I guess time will tell... the great finds for 5.99 in the bargain bin gotta come from somewhere.

    I tried Bang at a local Macys last holiday season. Good, but I felt my Gucci PHI had it pretty much covered for me.

    I've not seen it at TJ's yet, but I'll keep an eye open. Bang is one of those frags that I admire and respect for its quality, but I'm not sure I can wear it. There's a "fresh" smelling note among the pepper and wood that doesn't quite sit right with me. I'm not sure it would suit me. But if I see it going for under the $40, I'd probably buy it.

    Yeah, I love T. Bahama's Very Cool & would definitely second that recommendation. (It's a great summer scent with orange and a lot of ginger). It's a favorite if mine. I didn't like Set Sail St. Barts though (too boozy for my tastes). I haven't tried the original TB yet.

    Apparently Bang makes use of some fangled Givaudan captive. I quite enjoy it.

    Couldn't agree more with a fellow basenoter who mentioned how "bizarre" the ad campaign was and how "cheesy" the name was.

    Bumping this.

    Anybody see anything new?

    This was a surprise to me, at TJ Maxx today, I saw Marc Jacobs Bang. it was 39.99 and a bigger bottle, but it didn't say the oz size on there which was weird. It might have been a tester or something, but it was wrapped in cellophane. I also saw Dirty English 1.7 oz at TJM for 16.99. Ed Hardy Love & Luck 3.3 oz or whatever the bigger bottle is, for 29.99.

    Also some cool gift sets of mini's, looks like they changed them up a bit. One had Claiborne Sport, Michael Jordan, Lucky 6, Realities, and one other, I can't remember, it was 16.99, they were all .5 oz bottles.

    The other was 19.99, it has Usher, Usher UR, Curve, Curve Crush, Curve Connect; all .5 oz bottles as well, for 19.99. Both these sets are a bit different from the ones I have seen in the past.

    My favorite buys at TJ/Marshalls/Ross lately have been 50 Cent's Power & Usher's UR. Both were $14.99 & both are really underrated & dismissed because they are celebrity scents. Power is a really good mossy, musky fragrance & UR has one of the best drydowns I've smelled in a long time (smooth sweet cashmere wood & guaiac wood).

    Also, I would 2nd the recommendation for Ross's. They usually don't have as many bottles as TJ & Marshalls, but you find more expensive & unique stuff, often at ridiculus discounts. (I bought Davidoff's Echo 100ml there for only $7.99 a few months back).

    Thanks for bumping this - I'll track down the other bang thread and merge it here. It totally didn't dawn on me when I saw it!
