    Default Guerlain's l'art et la matiere prices going up?

    They used to be $235. Now they're on Nordstrom's website for $250. What gives?

    I guess it was felt that the market could absorb the increase. Not good though.

    Prices for the whole Guerlain range went up here on Feb. 1st. - seems to be around 7 - 8% (haven't really crunched the numbers).

    I have been wondering if it is just local or international.

    Does anyone know why are prices going up

    Well it'd be very easy to contribute these price hikes to increases in costs and overheads but, with the beauty industry still thriving throughout the recession, it's more likely they're attempting to fleece the public. It's probably a case of taking advantage of the situation (i.e the public seeking solace in their products during such hard times) and seeing how far they can push it,

    It's also funny how they're all following suit, at the same time, when a Paris appeals court has just upheld a multi-million fine imposed on several fragrance houses for price fixing.

    good points- Well LVMH must recoup their lawyers fees somehow, eh? Perhaps they figure someone who can pay retail and drop over 200 on a bottle of scent won't notice the increase. Unfortunately, it makes a big difference to the rest of us working stiffs who troll the internet for bargains.

    Actually, the Spiritueuse Double Vanille has stayed the same price. They've changed the packaging to something better, IMO, but the price remains $225 (for the time being)
