Pretty sure no one really cares but in case someone was on the fence with Venteprivee it turns out they actually shipped my order a week after my post, but failed to update inventory or anybody in CS. Finally getting the lighter I ordered over a month ago, I open the box and find a silver mini jet one or whatever they are called, even though the box is clearly marked Ligne 8 Red
Don't know if it's the French at S.T. Dupont or the French at Venteprivee but I don't think I've ever experienced this much fail in one order. They gave me $20 more credits after my last post but the effort and the fact that I bought the original lighter as a gift doesn't help neither as I had to get something else.
