    Default Renaming By Kilian fragrances now that they are with Estee Lauder.

    Seems like some people think that By Kilian fragrances are going to be reformulated into generic garbage now that they have been acquired by Estee Lauder. I have no comment about that, but I think it would be fun to rename as many from the line with that assumption. So, I'll start the ball rolling with my ingenius idea. Costco Azzurra.

    Time will tell, but hope not.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Although I think that Estée Lauder will handle my favorite niche house well and won't reformulate the scents into oblivion (remember, Aramis is still powerful after 50+ years and is one of the few leather chypres that haven't been slaughtered), I'll start.

    Yeah. My mistake. I confused a Tom Ford with a by Kilian. Perhaps I should go with Good Girl Gone From Bad to Worse.

    I doubt anything will be renamed or reformulated.

    They bought it for its success. Not to maim it.
