When a fragrance company launches a new fragrance, they create a big fanfare with press releases, launch parties, and bizarre social media campaigns. When a fragrance company discontinues a fragrance, there is rarely a peep. Having both recently read this thread on the forums about discontinued fragrances and recieving the latest copy of Michael Edward’s Fragrances of the World made me realise it’s been while since I’ve conciously updated the Fragrance Directory to correctly reflect discontinued fragrances.
So, here is a brief list of some of the fragrances that I’ve recently marked as discontinued, based on communicating with fragrance companies, confirmations from members, and double checking with Michael Edward’s book.
If you are in love with any of these, you may wish to stock up now!
Some of these have been discontinued a while, but I just haven’t had the chance to update things.
The links go to the fragrance directory entry, where in many cases is a list of eBay listings.
