    Agree. Money can be better spent on other fragrances IMO.

    It's crazy enough that it is so expensive, but they advertise the retail price next to it for one third of the cost… Somebody needs to work on their website product information.

    Why is it so expensive? Mistake?

    That's got to be a mistake? Surely they meant to apply a 30% discount and accidentally applied a 3x markup or something.

    Unless Kate Spade is the "original DHI" of the female perfume world.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Maybe they think it's rarer to have no box. I mean, any old perfume comes with a box -- but not this one!
