I just received this great email, thought I'd share it with you:
Sue, I am "lakjaw" (elizabeth day) from ebay, who recently wrote to tell you that you do a better job at making "Amazed" than philosophy does, because, after re-selling the company several times, the intensity, quality, and even the scent, itself, is not the same. This is apparently holding true for many of their fragrances.
However, what I wanted to write to you about today was what I just saw on QVC. They just came out with a new trio of solid fragrances (Amazing Grace, Falling in Love, and Pure Grace), for a cost of $45. However, the kicker is that there is only 9/100 of an ounce (0.09) per tube! It looks like a pretty silver version of your clear tube, but they've not yet shown it actually in front of the presenters, so no one knows how little there is. It's less than what they used to offer in the little tiny lip-balm-type micro-tubs. That's a total of just a tad over 1/4 of an ounce, total, and while my math is nowhere near perfect, I believe it figures at about $167 per ounce!
While I previously praised you on the quality of your work, the praise is exponentially increased when one considers how much money you save us.
BTW, I also use, after asking you if it was okay, the solid "tarts" of soy wax on my extremely dry legs and arms because they are the only thing which will really help stop the itching which results from such a severe condition.
Again, thank you so very much for what you are doing, and I hope that you will be able to continue with your superb work.
And I do intend to continue with my superb work :) Thank you Elizabeth for your wonderful emails!
And a follow up email:
Sue, you are more than welcome to use my note in your blog. I just don't want the philosophy company attempting to quash you if they should learn about your work. They have ruined many others who have provided us with good versions of they very, VERY expensive products, and there are now many complaints by consumers that the fragrances, whether it's cologne, EDT, EDP, or lotions/creams/bath gels. mainly in Amazing Grace and Falling in Love, are not true, do not last at all, and some are just worthless. When they first came out with their body butter, not ONE of them had the fragrance right.
I don't know if I told you this, but instead of paying $20 for a small tube of their Amazing Grace deodorant/anti- perspirant, I simply use an unscented one, then use your "solid lotion" over it. It not only has a great fragrance which lasts, it also keeps the underarm area from becoming irritated. Your products really know how to multi- task!
Looking forward to more great products from you. Keep up the excellent work!
