Thread: What puts you off about a house?
Generally speaking, I dislike limited editions.
Jo Malone is a huge culprit-- the limited editions are often available only for 6-8 weeks before selling out. It is rare for any to be brought back.
Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria fragrances are routinely discontinued. And the new ones are usually not available in our area.
I used to love Crabtree & Evelyn but am put off because of their reformulations: each new version of older fragrances seems to be worse than the previous one.
I am put off houses that only sell huge bottles of some of their fragrances. Creed, I'm looking at you. Seriously, how many people want to buy a minimum of 250ml of one fragrance?
Ha ha, I just had to go listen to "Brad Pitt Meets the Frog Chorus" again:
yes, I just tried this Creed in the "hand blown bottle" (like I care) it goes for $675!
Luckily, I have a scent-twin in Diptyque- Jardin Clos
Although, I did get a nice compliment from a stranger on the hotel elevator when I was on my trip, who said, Whatever I was wearing, it was working!
