    As a Visionaire addict, :woot: I'm thrilled that it's offered so inexpensive.

    Thoughts?

    Wow that looks fabulous! I've never heard of Visionaire before because i generally live in a hole, however it sounds like a great mag and I'm interested in learning more. How much does it normally retail for? How many issues do they print in a year? I would love to get my hands on an issue!

    It really sounds like a great idea. A friend of mine has a connection at Visionaire so I hope I'll be able to sneak a peek without shelling out the $175!

    It normally retails for $175 but you can find old issues on eBay for slightly cheaper on occasion. They publish 4 issues a year and you can subscribe for about $650 USD.

    Whoa . . . Visionaire seems so 'sacred", but most importantly interesting. :rolleyes: ;)

    I would love a copy. :blush: :heart:

    As for the Gap bag, they could find something much better in a untapped-fashion-booming country. ;)

    I have only seen one issue in person, but it was incredible. Does anyone own any copies? The issue I saw was the LOVE issue...I'd love to see more of other issues, however.

    The LOVE issue came in a Tiffany's box. What was inside was an old used book (hardback). Slipped in between the pages was the work of the contributors...a really unique experience.

    It was Tiffany's blue or whatever, not grey.

    This issue has a special online portion--you can go to the website, click Issues, find Issue 42, then experience each scent.

    Anyone who knows more about this magazine: Is it really as good as it seems?

    Does it come with a little something special each time? Is it a monthly magazine or are those just special edition books?

    I've heard a lot about them, but was never really sure what Visionaire is about.

    Kimkhuu, from their website:
    So basically, there's supposedly no standard for every issue. Most issues come with something extra that has to do with the packaging, but I'm not positve that all of them do.

    If you're still curious about the magazine, I'd say go to the website--they explain every issue with a few sample images of each one.

    I guess it's neither a magazine nor a book, although some places refer to it as a magazine for convenience's sake.
