Here is is perhaps the first fragrance in Basenote's history to undergo unprecedented "hype", simply by being discontinued. This, from what I can remember, did not provoke much discussion 8-9 years ago. The discussions it did, seemed to be negative overall, as the fragrance was viewed as a disappointment from such a house. I had a bottle. I barely remember having it, though, as the scent itself wasn't here nor there, and it must have became one of the first scents I traded or sold off (though I'm scratching my head to recall whether or not I actually ever threw one away).
That being said, I don't know the reasons for its discontinuation, but it seemed like it happened within a few years of being launched - which would signal it didn't perform well in the market (I do believe I received my bottle quite cheaply). So, now here we are, all these years later, and the red-headed step-child of Guerlain is getting attention anew as a limited edition. I certainly hope it smells better, but honestly, I have to laugh at the sudden interest. Unlike other beloved scents that have become discontinued over the years, for whatever their reasons, this one strikes me as being quite odd in its resurfacing.
