One of the pillars and hallmarks of the perfume world has come to its end. Today is truly a black and horrid day in the galaxy of perfumery.....see link below.
I'm glad I never wore Opium but I'm also glad to not have any YSL in my wardrobe any more. I've had Rive Gauche (also mutilated) and Paris (flankers demean it) and Y (it's been a while...) but I'm horrified that that company have taken over.
L'Oreal still test on animals ... one of the few companies that do, apparently.
Double Whammy right there.
I will mourn YSL as a whole now ...
I feel lucky that I splurged on a little flask of Parfum before this happened, and get to experience the good stuff instead of just reading about how wonderful it once was. I wish there were regulations having to do with not marketing mucked-about classic perfumes as something they no longer are!
