Rated 2 out of 5 by 64cek What's happening here?
I ordered Blue Grass, which I've loved and purchased for over 50 years, and the 3.3 oz. size is just right. This week I received a 1.7 oz bottle for $32.00. In checking what Blue Grass was being charged at Kohl's and the Vermont Country Store, I found they were charging $15 for 1.7 oz (what I received in size) and the Vermont County Store was charging $32 for 3.3 oz. Is there really that much difference between the Elizabeth Arden brand and the other two? Just wondering --
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adelaide65 Why has this been "down-marketed" in UK??
My Mother, aged 92, has used Elizabeth Arden since she was 14 and I have followed suit. Dabbled with others over the years but always return to Liz Arden for skin-care, make-up and fragrance.
Blue Grass and Memoire Cherie are treasured childhood memories for me and whilst the newer formula of Blue Grass isn't quite the same, it still has a comforting nostalgia about it which brings me back now and then. Why, oh why though was Memoire Cherie ever discontinued? Please, please bring it back!!
Also, another gripe ; why does the company no longer market Blue Grass as a current fragrance? Here in the UK, the Arden counters in department stores no longer stock Blue Grass (or Sunflowers - another favourite of mine). However, you may buy it at cheapy, discount drugstores for about £10. To me, the company is cheapening the image of the product and doing itself no favours in the process. It's great for me - I can buy my much-loved perfumes at knock-down prices but I don't understand the marketing process behind this.
HOWEVER - please, please don't discontinued these classics in favour of newer, higher-profile ranges. Remember your "bread and butter" loyal customers and don't throw the baby out with the bathwater!

I am 76 and have use Bluegrass since I was 16. A great aunt gave it to me for Christmas. I've only tried something else twice (because it was given to me) and did not finish either. Blue Grass is nostalgic, it's comfortable, it's there without being overpowering, everyone always compliments me scent, I enjoy the aroma when I open my closet as I always use it after I've bathed and dressed. It is a very feminine bouquet and one that not bother sensitive noses. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patty73 The shape of the Blue Grass Bottle is fine.
From the day I ever discovered Blue Grass, it has been my absolutely favorite perfume. My current bottle is at least 19 years old and still doing fine. I used it sparingly (!) in case it should be discontinued and I wouldn't be able to get any more. (I could use it that little and still have it be my favorite perfume, really). Now I see Blue Grass is still being made. My day is made. Will get a bottle soon to see how the scent compares with my current 'edition' The bottle is fine, still has the same classic lines and spirited, refined horse's head. Truly a thoroughbred of a perfume. :))

This is the fragrance worn by my mother. It is beautiful and totally unlike anything on the market today. It never fails to get a good response from others.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GG68 This is a great scent
This is the first perfume I ever wore years ago. My Mamaw purchased this as a Christmas gift back then and I've loved it ever since. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially if you want a scent that lasts, but isn't overbearing. It's perfect for people that want a soft and feminine scent. Love this perfume.
