    Who in the world could wear that much TF?

    NOW, I did price once a liter bee bottle of Jicky parfum from the Guerlain Paris store... but still... ;)

    I recall Master-Classter saying there was a gallon jug of Velvet Gardenia at his workplace.

    It was nearly ten years ago, so the prices are assuredly far greater now, but IIRC the gallon Jicky parfum was quite reasonable (comparatively) at 1300 euros or so. (this was also when the euro was lower... so this was probably $1100 at the time)

    It would be a dumb purchase, but it was fun just to imagine a big-ass bee bottle like that in the wine cooler. :)

    Okay, gotta go to work (Wednesday morning Japan time!)

    Less fun to imagine accidentally dropping it!

    I think 250ml are the biggest TFPB bottles. I Googled but didn't find a bigger one, so I added a "0" for the lulz.

    Now all that's needed is a shop of Foo standing next to it.

    Sorry, but what do you mean by "price"? Also are you referring to the domed, beehive bottle? Just curious.


    Why would a store, regardless of its size, have a bulk bottle like that? I remember when you could go into the San Francisco Neimans and get a refill of Annick Goutal but you can't refill Tom Ford, can you?

    No, I'm pretty sure you cannot refill Tom Ford. I wondered the same thing when M-C said that. And if you're going to have a gallon bottle of TF on site, why on God's earth would it be Velvet Gardenia?!

    Price as in a verb; inquire as to how much such a thing would cost. Its use was mostly a joke, like one "prices" a set of tires.

    Yep, the big bee bottles.

    Sampled Tobacco Vanille the other day. At first I liked it, but then I found it quite synthetic. Also, it seemed to project too strongly. I couldn't imagine wearing it. Might make a nice room scent though.

    Today, Creed BDP for a business lunch. Don't think I will get another bottle when this runs out. It's good but not worth the $.

    :laugh:

    Not sure yet what to wear, but I think it'll be Moss Breches or so. Edit: Amber Absolute it is.

    Oh, yesterday I wore Creed - BdP.

    Interesting. Though it's definitely unisex, I can't see it being a hit (here or elsewhere). It's too "Fruity" to feel substantive, and too pricey to feel like an apply-freely summer fun scent. It's not manly enough for a gentleman to wear to meetings; it's a little too stuffy to be girly. It's far too pleasant and uninteresting for true fragrance fans, and too expensive for a general consumer.

    It's also got the Creed longevity ills... for an EdP it's gone in a few hours (and this coming from somebody who can generally get a long life from his Creeds).

    The Creeds (Olivier and whatever his cute son's name is) are decent marketers, though annoying in the way they market... but they aren't genius parfumeurs.

    Speaking of genius, Diorissimo for me today. Luckily, there are still huge supplies of the old juice out there, but I tried the (new) EdP at the Dior store the other day and while it's obviously the same scent, the legal restrictions on jasmine and reformulations still give it that weird "itchy" bit to my nose... almost makes me sneeze.
