    Hate to break it to you but Chanel runs a really tight ship. You won't find them on discount, nor from online retailers.

    You won't find any real discounts when it comes to chanel fragrances.

    You could also search around here on the sale forum if someone is willing to sell at a lesser value than retail.

    A bottle will last so long, it's worth it. You don't need many. Get the three you listed, and you can retire from buying fragrance, on top of the game.

    You're better off ordering from the Chanel website to guarantee the authenticity. I just ordered a bottle of Edition Blanche from Chanel and it delivered within 3 days, not to mention the quality of the packaging was awesome!

    How are houses like Chanel and Frederic Malle able to keep their fragrances off discount/online sites?

    They only distribute them (wholesale) to very select retailers they work with, or only to their own boutiques. They do not make them available in wholesale to anyone who wants them, hence you won't find them at discounters and other unauthorized retailers Chanel or FM don't want to be associated with. Many companies do this to protect their brand identity, reputation, pricing, exclusivity, etc.

    If you have a Bon-Ton owned store such as Carson's in your neighborhood, wait for their Goodwill Sale that happens twice a year.

    Donate a gently used piece of clothing to Goodwill at your local Bon-Ton family store - then get 10% off any fragrance, including Chanel, or 25% off most clothing.

    I've only bought Chanel frags through an official Chanel website, or in person at Saks Fifth Avenue so far.

    Interesting. So Creed and Bond No 9 are fine distributing their frags to wholesale because they have a large quantity and they don't want it to go to waste (due to age/expiration)?

    Hi there

    Yes, Chanel makes very difficult to sell online! It has been very hard to buy Chanel products from our main suppliers but we still have some perfumes available.
    If you interested visit our website (check our profile).

    We guarantee that the perfumes are original and we ship worldwide with tracking code, we are located in Portugal. Just choose the english language and currency on the top of the page.

    Hope to hear from you

    My recent purchase was Blanche. Which is petty heavy on the citrus note, how different is allure sport? Is it worth getting in your opinion?

    Not right away. Edition Blanche is hard to beat. When you get tired of it, and you want something new, Eau Extreme is the latest flanker, and I like it.
