Whoever took the time and effort to mass produce a knock-off of this product should be both commended and kicked in the *****. Probably the Chinese, as they are the thievingest bastards on the planet. The packaging is spot-on...furry, velvet-like box...acid-etched, frosted-glass bottle...but that's where it stops. The bottle itself is too thin...the real deal weighs about 4 more ounces. You don't need a scale-- you can feel the weight difference in your hand and when you place the bottle on a stone counter, it lacks the "thunk". Also, the longevity of the smell...with the real deal you can apply 3 squirts and be good-to-go from sunrise to sunset. Not this. It lasts for about 2 hours max. What should have been a good purchase for 2 or more months turns into being a fraud which might last 3-4 weeks. It has a great smell, 70% similar to the real deal, but it doesn't have the hang power...overall...letdown...pay the extra $ at *******, ***** or ******.
Being able to purchase designer fragrances and reduced prices is terrific....saved money on Overstock with the standard reduced price and purchased on a day when it was and additional 10% off and free shipping!!!! YEAH. Arrived in perfect condition and smells terrific. Significant saving over department store prices.
I've been wearing Light Blue for 3 years and usually purchase it from a fragrance shop in my local mall. Thankfully one bottle lasts me about a year, so that offsets the high price associated with premium fragrances. I recently received an Overstock gift card and decided to order a bottle as mine was getting low and the price was great. When it arrived I opened it and gave it a little spray on my neck and on my forearm and was immediately disappointed. I wasn't met with the delightful scent I know and love, but instead got a faint alcohol smell that quickly dissipated. Later that same evening my partner came home and I asked him to smell my new cologne. He sniffed around my neck for a second and said, "You're trying to trick me! You're not wearing anything!" That confirmed it for me - I received a bum bottle of Light Blue. I tried wearing it out on a couple of occasions just to be absolutely sure, and you know how sometimes you catch a whiff of yourself and you're like, "Nice, I smell delicious. Come get some, world!"? That never happened... Nor did anyone comment on how I wonderful I smelled. And if no one tells you that you smell good, you can just assume that you smell bad.
I stopped making Cologne purchases at Macy's, Dillard's since the same quality can be found for less. If I want to sample a new sent then will visit the store but since they will not price match sorry my money is spent wisely since this is a luxury purchase for me.
