    Default VC&A Collection Extraordinaire for $99.00 USD

    I love it when my favourite online perfume sellers give nice discounts--15 to 20% off. I also love bonus packages of samples that are offered from time to time with minimum purchases. Heck, if I am going to buy anyway, I like the samples and other items. (Parfum1 is very good with this.)

    I dislike those who never offer any discounts or customer incentives. I like to shop around for the best deals.

    These offers are examples from Amazon.

    For instance, you can now buy the VC&A Collection Extraordinaire for $99.00 USD. This retails for $185.00. You can buy Precious Oud and Bois d'Iris.

    You can also buy the VC&A Midnight In Paris in the eau de parfum for $38.55. The last time I saw it sold online it was over $100.

    Default VC&A Collection Extraordinaire lovers: On Amazon for $99.00 or less

    If you fancy the line of the VC&A Collection Extraordinaire, you can buy them from vendors on Amazon for less than $100 USD.

    I found the Gardenia Petale for $80. The Precious Oud and Bois d'Iris are under $100.

    These scents usually retail for $185 and only come in the 2.5 oz bottles. I ordered a scent from Amazon and its the real deal.

    This was I believe mentioned in another thread but can't remember the title. What a great deal on these. This seller is the one I believe that offers all of them with the exception of the most recent release, the rose one.

    hednic, I posted to the Gen Frag threads but no one seemed to notice.

    These are the real deal and at great prices.

    Thank you for posting the storefront.

    Absolutely. Don't think one is ever going to find them any cheaper. What a savings off retail!

    kalli, this line is a mixed bag with some very floral scents for women and a few for men. I think the Cologne Noire and the Bois d'Iris can be worn by men.

    Also recently bought this at that great price. Had tried these at Nieman Marcus and found this one to be the most masculine of the lot, although I could probably get away wearing a few others.

    Dang it! I've been wanting Cologne Noir for ages and this goes to this price the moment some crooks stole my credit card numbers... this is so unfair!

    Yes, it was a really good deal. There was also Gardenia Petale for $79.99 a great deal as well.

    I had a feeling, even a year ago, that this line would end up in the bargain bin. It just didn't seem, to me, like they were supporting it and showing it properly. And I didn't fall in love with any of the actual fragrances so I felt like, well, if your average man on the street, Joe Sixpack kind of guy such as myself wasn't overly amazed, then the line may not be selling too robustly. Especially at those prices. It was just a hunch, I had no facts either way. It surely seems more interesting at almost half off, though.

    Precious Oud is exactly like TF Black Orchid. The Rose one is very good though.

    I don't know about "showing" the scent, but when I was last in Las Vegas, they had it prominently in their boutique.
