The same person who would spend $$$ on fragrances when there are less expensive alternatives.

That's not an accurate comparison:

Look, peeps have money... they can spend it however they want. Bottom line. Point blank.nabiul wrote: ↑Dec 21st, 2016 6:46 amThat's not an accurate comparison:
1. Swatch owns the company that makes the $5k watch
2. In both cases you get a more complicated piece of equipment that had a lot of work put into it by people who are paid fair wages for their time.
It's not the manufacturers fault that you use a 300hp sports car as a taxi or a deep diving watch to time your steak.
In dysons case it's all marketing bullshit, their stuff was never meant for doing anything more than the $20 equivalent.
Take this $800 lamp for example: http://www.dyson.com/lighting/csys.aspx
There's nothing innovative about it at all.
It's literally a couple of pieces of aluminum track used to make automation systems with some cheap LED's stuck on the end.
A $20 lamp will do more in this case because you can at least point the bulb at what you are working on.

She has clients that would pay $500 (even more sometimes) to colour their hair pink and this involves a lot of washing and drying as it takes a lot of process and a whole day for very long hair. It usually takes around 20 mins to dry long hair at a salon. If she can do that in less time and getting better results than the other hairdryers, then I guess it's a worth it for her. Besides, judging by the amount of cash women would pay her to colour their hair, she can totally afford it :P
