    Default Guerlains heavily discounted everywhere, reason?

    I see many Guarlain fragrances in the new bottles sold very cheap at many places. Guerlain Homme EDP 100ml bottles for 30-50, same for l'instant de guerlain and l'eau boisee. L'homme Ideal cologne 50ml is going for 20 at various places. These are sold all at respectable online stores (and saw a few at tk maxx.)

    I can't remember prices ever being so low. Is this normal pricing strategy for Guerlain around this time of the year or something, or are they trying to get rid of the newer bottle style again perhaps.

    Those are indeed excellent prices on those!

    Guerlain has tremendous economy of scale. Packaging and shipping to distributors is the biggest expense. Fragrancenet and Scented Monkey have had super low prices for years on Vetiver and all Habit Rouge flankers. They are the best value that I know of for decent perfume.

    Mom and pop stores and other places that sell vintage frags, quite often I found the classics at a bargain!

    Have not seen such good prices yet where I live, not even with online retailers and/or subsidiaries of international foreign resellers, but then again most Guerlain fragrances were never too expensive outside regular/full retail, so a few of the "next best" (priced) bargains are still out there particularly online

    Guerlain Ideal Cologne is rumored to be discontinued which would explain the huge discount on that one sealed 3.3oz bottles $27 on fragrancex.

    Let's not give these online stores any ideas. Just go with it.
