    Some of these look cool. I think there was a missed opportunity at putting the EdT in a trigger bottle, but I guess Moschino and B.O.D. already beat everyone to that.

    Not every discussion requires a winner and loser. There isn't always a right and wrong. Conversation is not a battlefield.

    A good decision can always be repeated. In this, as for me, there is nothing shameful. Of course, appropriating someone else's inventions is bad, but creating a special bottle for a special perfume is not a crime.

    I was hoping for special limited release scent(s), can't say this announcement brings much thrill for the anniversary celebration.

    My granddaughter would be interested in this.
    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.

    I love it! Gearpunk! I thought it interesting that the L'Eau in cylindrical bottles is GONE - that was the first thing I thought would be a nice thing to snag, although I love the look of the oil bottle quite a bit, too.

    My favorite thing was the packaging for the EDP and L'Eau bottles. I love it! Still hopeful that they will do something special for the holidays.

    Me too! I'm sure of it. More surprises, no doubt! If I recall correctly, the limited edition red L'Eau was a late announcement. Chanel fans need to plan ahead!

    Yes, exactly. Perhaps they wanted to stay "industrial" rather than "consumer". But I think there might be an opportunity with a spray can, WD40-style.

    I have a beautiful old photo somewhere of a lathe in a hydro power plant in a dam (they fabricated all their old parts), with a colorful can of Glade sitting on the table next to it. It was just wonderfully right and wrong at the same time. I got some amazing photos out of that tour.
