Thanks mang. Tonight will be better. The thing about CC, and to a lesser extent Creed, Rance, et al, is that they market carefully according to their target audience. CC in particular markets their scents around the high prices - and is designed to attract the person for whom only the Most Expensive is good enough. Never mind that Chanel does far better at a far lower price point - for CC's target audience it's all about exclusivity. Last time I wandered through NM, I saw the tiny CC counter and the rep there really didn't have any ammo to draw me in other than "World's Most Expensive...blah blah..." Well, for NM shoppers that's certainly a good hook to use and is indicative of their target audience and niche. Next time you're in NM, wander towards the Chanel boutique and give their goods a whiff. Hit the Exlcusifs (Sycomore, Coromandel), and the men's (tucked back and to the left). Chanels tend to be a relative bargain relative to their quality, particularly the masculines.
