The website indicates you can use the sample credit on anything except more samples (e.g. the fancy bottles). Anyone know if that's the case? I'd be more inclined to get a sample set if that's true.
Sweet, thanks for the info, OctaVariuM.
Absolutely and emphatically NO, not worth the high price!
"Thank GOD for the nose, for without it we would not be enjoying these beautiful created Scents" also Remember "Balance is everything and the key to appreciating "
Chypre Palatin and Invasion Barbare are two of the most incredible scents that I have ever tried and this is after 30+ years of loving fragrance.
Would I like to pay less for them? Of course but I can't so I bite the bullet financially and enjoy these incredible fragrances. If you've tried them and you can honestly say that you don't like them then I understand but even if you don't like them, can you appreciate their construction and the materials and creativity involved in that construction?
Edit to add; do you love Creed fragrances or any other niche stuff? If you don't think MDCI fragrances are worth the price, how do you feel about other, expensive niche fragrances in general?
Agree with the above - however, I will buy the bottle only & no bust - this house is similar to by Kilian - if you buy the whole package, you are spending way more than the actual cost of the parfum - imho...I buy only refills of Kilian & although I own only IB from MDCI, I do intend buying Chypre Palatin in the future.
As soon as My cash lands end of month , Im getting a sample set too, very excited
Thought of Chypre paladitin, cuir garamante, invasion Barbare,rivage des syrtes och vepres siciliennes
Probably just changing host or having a re-vamp - Chypre Palatin's on my 'to do' list from there
I found another I really like- Vepres Sicilienes. Soft peach and incense. Normally I'm tired of incense but here it gives weight to the delicate peach. Very elegant.
Yeah, it's interesting to see a company that sells such expensive luxury goods hosting their web site on a FREE, yes, FREE web hosting platform. That thing was designed for freebie, personal junk sites, not for commercial hosting, especially for what one would consider premium luxury brand. Their account finally got cancelled, it seems. You'd think they could afford to spend a few bucks on at least some cheapie web hosting plan. I emailed them over a year ago and extended free hosting services altogether (I own couple web hosting companies) but never heard back from them. Oh well.

Site is back up.
I see, in french, Enlevement as temporary unavailable, high hopes
We want a niche forum.
Totally worth the price just for the excellent service Claude provides!
Invasion Barbare and Chypre Palatin are excellent... Cuir garamante has that sharp note that I hate but Nuit Andalouse is an amazing floral. All his fragrances have very good longevity.

After wearing the best cologne I've ever tried (Invasion Barbare) and smelling it pretty strongly on my skin eleven hours later I'd have to say yes. Two tiny sprays is all it took. Double the price, double the longevity, and double the quality means half the price, if you think about it.
I love some of them - have Enlevement au Serail, Rivage des Syrtes, Vepres Siciliennes and Nuit Andalouse. To me they are worth it.
tried several of them , still no positive impression... the bust bottles are...tacky!
I love this line, there offering are complex and IMO they are worth every pennies.
I love Invasion Ba

Chypre Palatin is love and also like Cuir Garamante. What are thoughts on new releases ?
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
I like Fêtes Persanes too.
