    Default Creed Price Rises in the UK

    I noticed today that Creed have increased their website prices in the UK. A 500ml bottle of Aventus now goes for £495 which is an extra £30 on the previous price and £60 on what they were charging 12 months ago. Milking that cow for all its worth, Creed?

    My guess is that price increase will be reflected soon everywhere.

    Really dont see how they can justify them to be honest, certainly not so much so above the rate of inflation.

    Ridiculous prices. No doubt grey-market prices will also rise in response, given time.

    Wonder what the mark up is?

    How much to produce one bottle of any fragrance? I've heard that the juice itself probably amounts to no more than £2 to £5.

    Then all the other factors come into play -- marketing, packaging, reputations to uphold, etc

    As long as people buy them, prices will rise.

    Let me guess, its because every country on earth is using FIAT CURRENCY and its not backed by any hard asset such as gold or silver. Im sure that'll cause inflation on "goods & services".

    Because as I say, I tend to buy the 500ml flacons which are rarely available on the web at discounted price. Theres one on ebay at the minute in italy but the seller hasnt got back to me when I asked about it.

    There's also no alternative for the atomisers as far as I know, and they've jumped from £110 to £125! Awful.

    I honestly don't think there's any cologne I'd pay over 150 dollars American for, and it had better be something that would make angels weep. I've had my eye on a bottle of Polo Crest but those never go for under 120 dollars, and I've been mulling that over for a while, so we'll see; although there is a bottle of Creed Green Irish Tweed at a local wholesaler for 160 bucks, and I must admit I thought about getting it, but in the end I think I'd rather buy the Polo Crest.
