    Default Point of no return.....

    ... here it is.
    In the past monthss, a less-than-5 euro frag, better than a designer's one.

    Many things to reflect about, especially for the ">200 euros niche perfumes".

    Interesting finding, but if I were a woman, I'd still choose the Chanel.

    To my shame, I am familiar with this bargain price scent and, again to my shame, I must confess I find it quite good and definitely more expensive smelling than the actual price.

    No Shame, I bought it, tried it, too.
    And I can confirm it's a better-than-average scent.
    If it had another packaging, another name, another "niche" look, it would have...another price tag, very different.

    I haven't tried this one, but kind of about the same subject...

    I've been into wet shaving lately, and I must say some aftershaves that cost around 4 euros per 100 ml are much much better than most designer fragrances these days. For example Vitos Aftershaving is very nice and wearable orangey amber. Not complex, but very nice, natural and comforting. Floid aftershaves are also excellent.

    Not necessarily defending Chanel here. However the fact that they're pitting it against Mademoiselle, to my mind, is kind of moot. After all if you're going to pay to smell like everyone else why pay $200 when you can pay $20? Though there have been a few times where I've really wanted/loved something I generally don't think much of paying top dollar for anything so popular.
