  • Tommasina: I thought that particular Bois 1920 was only available in seven Neiman Marcus stores in the whole of the US, and was not available on line at all. I wonder how they qualified for this. I suppose maybe it was listed under Perfume Holding Corp., though I’ve no idea what else that organization markets. January 23, 2012 at 2:43pm Reply

  • Victoria: I think that the way it is worded is that a perfume needs to be sold in no more than 50 doors, and that number includes online retailers. So, if it is sold at seven stores, it qualifies. January 23, 2012 at 2:51pm Reply
