Luxury goods are a guilt-inducing indulgence: Survey

The Economic Times

At the other end of the scale, a majority of respondents in India, Brazil and the Netherlands say they do not feel guilty after a luxury purchase, mainly because Indians and Dutch are “sensible” about spending their money while Brazilians tend to be more “hedonistic”, the survey said.

A majority of luxury lovers also tend to love showing off their purchases. Nearly half of all respondents said they preferred to buy items with a obvious designer logo, especially in India, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates, where many people believe in the adage “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”.

There are those who like a more subtle approach, with the survey showing that many Brazilians, French and British prefer luxury goods without a logo that screams in your face.
