Is it possible that a perfume that costs $865 for 10ml could make someone smell expensive? You'd think that New York magazine's Daily Intel bloggers would conclude "yes," but actually they polled some Midtown shoppers who concluded that you'd be better off using that cash to conspicuously consume in some slightly less useless fashion, like by buying "a new coat from Saks on sale, like a Loro Piana cashmere coat." Glad that's settled. [NYM]
