First, winners of the Guerlain Iris Torrefie samples – Jennifer and Brigitte. Just click on Drop Us a Note at the top, send me your address and remind me what you’ve won (I’m old, and can’t remember anything anymore!) and I’ll get them out to you.
But can we share our collective perfume knowledge and figure out where some Guerlains are going or if they are going? Unsubstantiated rumors are welcome in this blog exercise.
Guerlain Apres L’Ondee is disappearing. Every now and then a little stash shows up on eBay, but it is getting so hard to find except at the boutique, the little under $100 bottles are just gone. Is it for sure discontinued or are they pulling it back into the boutiques in the refillable colored bees? I’m never sure if a comment I read somewhere is old or current – and that was one, it is going back to the refillable colored bee bottles.
And some of the La Matieres are gone – SDV and Bois d’Armenie. Now I’ve heard for years Bois d’Armenie is going, but it seems to have hit that GONE space. SDV looked like Saks had it, but, oops, nope, cancel that order, they do not.
So with adding new things to the Matieres line, are they dumping old ones or are some materials just harder to get right now?
I heard something – yes, who knows the accuracy of the “heard” – that vanilla as a material was getting harder to get, at least for now. Would that explain that, or did they just disappear them? Okay, I’m going to go cry now if that’s true.
