    Question Dolce & Gabbana - Anthology Series.....your views ?

    I am not familiar with any of these and have recently noticed perfumeries here selling them off at half price...
    Was the series a flop ?
    Have they been discontinued ?
    Are they high quality / niche syle ?

    Any recommendations ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes David it was a flop, I believe the line has been discontinued. The line was dated and weak.

    They were not niche really, which per se wouldn't have been an issue. But to my nose they were quite uninteresting. Not worth even at half price I'd say.

    I tried a few of them and thought they were awful. I'd save your money and avoid these.

    Exactly right. I see them at Nordstrom Rack all the time. Maybe decent as a room spray?

    10 La Roue de La Fortune & 6 L'Amoureux are the best offerings from the line, the rest were just meh.

    Also tried a few and agree that they were sub par.

    Tried the whole line at Nordstrom's and thought a couple were OK, but nothing I'd pay that price for.

    Nothing wowed me. The best imo is L'Imperatrice.

    I quite like No.10 La Roue de la Fortune but on the whole find the overall quality a let down. An interesting concept nevertheless. Too bad it was hamstrung by possibly a lack of budget.
