Black Dahlia Replacement

Now that Black Dahlia is discontinued I need to find a ultra high end product to offer. We did not sell much of it but we did sell some. Future recommended we care spiked & seductive by DC with a retail of $106. Black Dahlia was $150. I sell my products at retail so I am looking for something closer to $120. I do not want to carry Cypher or anything that is 8oz or less. Any ideas?

Re: Black Dahlia Replacement

Kardashian Dark Bronzer is high end, I don't care for the package at all, but the product gets very good reviews. $130 MSRP.

Spiked & Seductive has a much better bottle design, it is moving fast and is becoming a top seller for the season. MSRP is $106, bit if you sold Black Dahlia for $150, (MSRP was actually $140) Then you will have no problem getting $150 for Spiked & Seductive.

Re: Black Dahlia Replacement

Has Black Dahlia been discontinued forever, or just done for the season?

Re: Black Dahlia Replacement

It was a limited edition. They just made 1 run of it. When it's gone it's gone.

Re: Black Dahlia Replacement

Thanks John; I had no idea. I mistakenly thought it would be made each year with that seasons plant crop.
Marie..Previously I had good results with Black Noir. Sales of Black Noir stopped when I sampled out the Black Dahlia and started selling that.

Re: Black Dahlia Replacement

DS Elusive is supposed to be comparable to Black Dahlia.

IMO Elusive has been a let down, not that great of a lotion for the price point.

I would still prefer DS Obsidian. Always been a great seller

Why wouldn't you want bottles that are 8oz and less? Less lotion in the bottle means clients need to buy more.

Re: Black Dahlia Replacement

I was given a bottle of elusive to try and I was not impressed and now I have 3 bottles in stock the I cant sell because if someone spends $145 on a lotion it better 1.) get them a base in 3 sessions or 2.) have a midget that hops out of the bottle to apply it. I was told that Elusive replaced black dahlia. I have seen great results in excess by Designer. Very happy with it and use it myself. I have my first 3 bottles of kardashian special event come in on Monday
