    Cool Ormonde Jayne...Four Corners- One Simple Question

    I realize everyone may have their favorite(s) from this line, however, over all...

    Are they really worth the price that is being asked? (One is priced at $280 and then they jump to $400-$550 range)
    Perfume mark-up is high but..geez. At $500+, it had better be some incredible perfume .

    Of course, "worth it" depends on how much you like it and how much disposable income you have.

    Personally, while I like all of them, I don't LOVE any of those, so for me, no - nothing from the 4 Corners of the Earth Collection - But Qi comes close.

    However, Ormonde Man and Isfarkand are well worth the price to me.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. Xerjoff - Fars
    5. Dior - Vetiver
    6. Creed - Green Valley
    7. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Creed - Royal Scottish Lavender

    IMO having a high disposable income has nothing to do with the FBW rating of a fragrance. If you had to ask if a fragrance is 'worth it' then the simple answer would be 'NO'.

    Their regular line is awful, filled with several synthetic bases that give an industrial vibe after a couple of hours.
    These must be similar with a touch of an expensive ingredient and '300 pounds please'.
    We want a niche forum.

    When passionate IMO price goes out the window is just some that have the income get it quicker and others would have to save up$$

    Thanks everyone-

    I pretty much thought that it was a lot of hype. Althought some may like or love them, the high price tag was just not warranted or justified.

    True enough.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Nawab of Oudh is one of the best fragrances I have ever smelled. A little too much for my wallet however.

    I think Nawab of Oudh is fantastic as well. If money is an issue, splits are always an option.
