Chanel Les Grands Extraits

Holy Swoon- browsing the Chanel site and what do I see, something called Les Grands Extraits .
They turn out to be vats of pure parfum . 7 to 30 oz of the pure parfum in Gardenia, #5 and Coco Mademoiselle. The site calls it the Magnum Opus of Chanel Parfumery.

Can you imagine? It's like having one of those huge factices you see in stores that aren't filled with the real thing, but these are. The downside of having Chanel Gardenia Parfum for life- it sells for $ 3200.00. Alas, not in my budget , but I think I might make it my wallpaper.

No. 5 is $ 2350.00 for 15 oz, Coco Mademoiselle is the bargain at $ 1700.00 for 7.5 oz

I saw these before. Aren't they crazy? I wish they made one in Bois des Iles.

It would be nice to have a bottle of chanel parfum and not have to worry about using it too quickly b/c its hard to replace (in the case of Bois des Iles).
