When you think of the cost of a bottle of expensive perfume you probably think of $1,000.
But that is only a fraction of the true cost of such a luxury product, according to a new study.
The study, published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology, showed that the average price of a new bottle of a perfume costing between $3,000 and $6,000 will have a sticker price of $30 to $60.
The authors argue that the sticker price is inflated by companies marketing their products to consumers who are willing to pay.
“The sticker price and sticker size of many expensive perfumes are not accurate,” the authors wrote.
“If consumers are paying $30 for a perfume with a sticker size that is actually much larger than it appears, we would expect the sticker to cost more.
However, the sticker size and sticker price are generally inflated by the manufacturer, and not by consumers.”
They further argued that consumers would likely pay higher prices for the same perfume if they could easily purchase it online or at a store.
As such, the price of cheap perfume would likely go up.
The researchers also found that the number of consumers who paid more for their perfume than they expected to is greater than the number who paid less.
“We conclude that consumers are often misled about the sticker prices of expensive perfumery and that they may be willing to buy expensive perfums for less than they think,” the researchers wrote.
In the past few years, there has been a lot of pressure on companies to make products more affordable.
“Many retailers are starting to implement new pricing systems to increase consumer demand for cheaper goods,” the study authors wrote in their study.
“Consumers are also learning to use cheaper, less durable packaging for their products, which is likely to increase the sticker costs of perfumes.”
In addition, the authors said that many companies that do business with consumers are also marketing their product to younger consumers.
“As consumers grow older, they are less likely to be willing or able to afford to pay more for perfumes and more likely to buy cheaper products,” they wrote.
If consumers are buying inexpensive perfumes, then companies should make it easier for them to get their products.
However if the sticker pricing is too high, consumers will continue to buy less expensive products.
The new study is just one example of how the sticker-price debate is heating up.
Last week, a group of women in New Jersey sued the makers of a $8 shampoo that they said was too expensive for them.
The group, The New Jersey Women’s Rights Organization, said that the shampoo cost them an extra $5 to $10 a month for haircuts, makeup and grooming products.
“Women have been told that it is a luxury to buy fragrances for the very high sticker prices, and that the price is an outrageous expense for their families,” said Jessica Mancini, the organization’s executive director.
The lawsuit is pending.
