History is also on her side. One cannot overlook the interest in a woman president. Speaking purely from my own experience, until I actually found out who Sarah Palin was... I was initially really excited that McCain picked a woman. I remember hearing the announcement in my car and being so thrilled/amazed at his courage. Of course that changed when I realized who she was... but still... the interest in a non-white old rich man is pretty strong. White old rich...
I'd say "yes," less because I'm a supporter, a liberal, or because "it's her turn," than just because she's been out there so long it's hard to imagine what can be used against her. I'd hate to be doing opposition research; the right blew their load on Clinton stuff long ago. Benghazi? Emails? I don't think it has traction or staying power. Then again, what are they going to do... bring back Whitewater? Unless the Repubs can get a really great candidate to shine...
YAAAY! Absolutely agree. When I read all you fellows trying all the newest niche stuff, without having tried the true classics, it makes me sad. Like waiting in line for the latest Donna Tartt when you've not even opened Flaubert. The EdP (or PdT) and of course Parfum are also heavenly. Unlike Chanel, which changes the character with concentration, Guerlain sort of just pushes the "core" further each time. SO, the parfum is a dark, spicy, heavenly elixir. The EdT,...
No confidence to post old fit pics, but I did today randomly find in an old box of files this invitation from way-back-when. Good memories. I distinctly recall being pretty broke that winter. BUT, I did have several great pairs of pants, several Egyptian cotton sweaters with all the weird bondage straps, a canvas rucksack, a carpenter's bag, and a coated cotton peacoat built to withstand mortar fire.
Chamade EdT for a wonderfully nice Spring day. I've been waiting for months for the right day for this one. The best of "early spring/early fall" scents. Hyacinth, Guerlinade, and a wonderful spicy note (carnation?) that pushes it from floral into unisex territory. Ignore the floral/powder "grandma" blast at the front and watch how wonderfully it develops after a few minutes.
I understand the feeling by Linjer to provide as much point-for-point information as possible, but I encourage them maybe to let the thread be for now and handle the issues on a case-by-case basis. I think they've explained things clearly and are obviously going to stand by their product. I don't think much more can be accomplished through added explanations or replies to each and every comment, except to go further (and unnecessarily) on the defensive, derail the thread,...
This was my main reason for doing my initial review. For the money AT RETAIL, I thought they couldn't be beat. I also purchased a few more items since then and have been equally pleased.I also think your comment above about this being an initial launch is very apt; members were also given considerable discounts in order to be early backers. In short, while again I don't think members should just "deal" with this problem... I do think some patience, consideration, and...
ps I'm curious (and maybe Linjer will 'fess up) how many bags we are talking about vs. total orders. Of course the thread now looks like the entire launch is plagued with marks... but the SF audience is only a small part of the total orders. 10%? 5%? Fifty total bags out of several hundred ordered? Again, it helps to get a real dose of scope. Any restaurant owner will tell you that for every 20 satisfied customers it only takes ONE dissatisfied one to throw the whole...
Oh, jeez. And they also must hire a personal courier and guard dogs to deliver the raw materials to your house to be put together, on site, in front of you. And whatever you do, don't take paint thinner at it. (I'm kidding, of course)Guys, seriously, take a chill. As far as I'm reading, nobody is being told that they just have to live with these issues or that their bags are "final sale." So, I'm not sure what makes the whole thing a disappointment or worthy of freaking...
