Websites are not always the latest sources of information.
IMO, Guerlain's Derby, even in the new version, is a very understated classic.
Too bad the bee bottle is now history. It has been replace with an ugly wooden monstrosity that is not consistent with the timeless elegance of the scent.
I would agree that it is more for the discerning buyer and not for the general scent-buying public. Just like Apres l'Ondee, one has to search for it or ask for it, or buy from boutiques.
