The Jean Paul Gaultier holiday snow globes for Classique (100 ml) and Le Mâle (125 ml) are out already, and they're mighty cute, although they would please me even more if they launched in say, November? Anyway, you can find them at Macy's in the US or Escentual in the UK.
November? November’s too late in the Land of Retail. November is basically the new year.
I work in a craft store and we started putting out our Christmas stuff in late August, which you could argue makes sense because people might begin making their Christmas presents months beforehand: but we started putting out trees, ornaments, ribbon, and the like in the first week of September. Now, three weeks in, it’s already full-bore Christmas: the fall stuff is being clearanced out (although Hallowe’en has been in full swing for well over a month and will continue until November 1st). The day after Remembrance Day it will be Christmas music non-stop (and that’s what *really* makes you want to throw yourself off a building). By the end of December, all the Valentine’s Day and spring stuff will be on the sales floor.
Anyway. Those Gaultier bottles are super cute.
In a craft store that makes sense to me. I know other retailers aren’t going to wait until Thanksgiving anymore, but Halloween seems reasonable! I hate seeing Advent calendars coming out in August.
Especially the chocolate ones….
