155.00 for a 2oz. Lol
I will definitely not get this.
Even as a fan of the EDT, I've held out on EDP and Parfum, so this needs to bring some serious wood to the game to make me jump at that price. I've got several great contenders for that cash already. Picky as I am, I'll still call it a home run if it is, buy or no buy.
I'm excited to sample it...
I never had (too much) of a problem with the scent. Synthetic? Yes. Does that automatically mean it's trash? Not in my book.
Plus, logic tells me that the higher the concentration is, the smoother and less harsh it'll most likely be, think Interlude 53 vs Normal Interlude, and see some people's experiences with the Parfum version earlier in the thread.
I, for one, am excited to try this out, I always avoided buying a bottle of Sauvage to avoid smelling like every other guy, but at the end of the day, this DNA just works for people, and I've had alot of people in my life ask me why I don't own any Sauvage and they always tell me how much they love it.
My friends like it, someone I'm interested in likes it, and I don't find it all that offensive a scent. I wear fragrance for myself above all, but this is a nice safe one. Always good to have some of those, and this is potentially a more quality version of that profile.
I won't get into the whole "buT iT'S not WOrTh thE PRice" aspect of it, since I really think any fragrance is worth whatever it is you're willing to pay for it if you like it, regardless of what the rest of the market looks like.
All I know is this... I see Sauvage in my future.
Frankly, this is a "niche" offering at a low niche price - I'm with you - nothing excessive about an extrait in that volume at that price. My Bleu Parfum performs like crazy - one light half-spray lasts all day and makes my shirt smell like it for a week. 100 mL will last forever, and the 90% bottle left in my estate will likely be worth enough to cover flowers! :wink: These parfums and extraits are all steals at these prices. These bottles will be trading forever!
