    Default Gendarme - discontinued???

    I went to Sephora today to buy Gendarme. I grabbed a bottle & took it to the counter. "And that will be $15.75" the SA said. I pulled out my card, and then did a double take. "Are you sure?" I asked. She then went to say that it seemed a bit weird to her too. She scanned the bottle at another register, & it came up the same, $15.75. She called another SA up to confirm. Sure enough, it was $15.75 for the 4oz bottle. The SA said that it must be that it's being discontinued. On the shelf, it still said $44 for the 2oz bottle, $66 for the 4oz bottle. But it rang up as $15.75. Has anyone else tried buying a bottle of Gendarme lately? I know this frag is pretty popular among Basenoters. Has anyone else had any weird experiences buying this lately?

    i think she means discontinued in the store . . . like they aren't going to carry it. gendarme would never discontinue itself, it's too popular and one of a kind

    Well if that's the case, I'd say everyone should get to Sephora to stock up on Gendarme!

    I was in Sephora yesterday and asked for some Gendarme. The sales lady said it was on sale last week but it all sold out. So, I missed it.

    There have been a couple threads about this. About a month and a half ago, while traveling in St Louis, I spotted the 4 Oz bottle on the clearance rack for $12. They are not going to carry Gendarme at Sephora anymore, same thing with Demeter (1 Oz bottles for $3).

    Following Markc in suit, I bought several bottles after his posting (of which I am selling, see my For Sale thread if you are interested). I was told that Sephora was no longer carrying the brand but the rep did not know why. I know that Gendarme recently underwent a "packaging" change; so maybe they were just letting loose the now out of date packaging.

    Is it me or the selection at sephora is getting more and more limited? Pretty soon it will be like dillards.Shame.
