    Default Histoires Opera line now in standard bottles and dropped in price

    So the fancy bottles and packaging have been ditched from the Opera line and the ridiculous prices have come down to earth (somewhat). Now retailing at 125 euro for 60 ml.

    Too late for me as I already have the five original bottles but it's great that they lowered the prices and made them available and more affordable to a larger segment of the population. Thanks for the update.

    Not really - been talking to owner. Music boxes stay too as exclusive edition and these new cheaper versions are in lower concentration Absolue Eau de Parfum versus pure perfume. So hednic - no regrets ;-)

    Right you are 4Ever - I should not have been so hasty. Here's the page where they're both on sale:

    I'm glad they changed the bottles / presentation. The original ones were beyond hideous.

    According to this link from their website they have not only changed the bottle but it seems also the concentration strength.

    Yes hednic, they were showcased in Milano - they new ones are less concentrated and more affordable while fancy bottles/music boxes are offered as pure perfumes. Both offerrings will stay in the HdP line-up.
