    Default Cdg discontinuation false rumor?

    this dispatch from a friend who is in Paris:

    Tout vite, since I am about to collapse from exhaustion, but:

    I marched over to the Comme des Garcons boutique today (and what a walk it was: from the Fnac on the Avenue des Ternes, all the way to the middle of Paris) and asked about the rumors that some of the series were being discontinued. I was told, unequivocably, that this was simply not true, indeed, unthinkable. Right now they are lagging behind on production on the Sweet series, but they have no intention (this according to the woman who manages and runs the boutique) of stopping production of anything.

    -----

    end of dispatch excerpt. my feeling about the whole thing is that... some SAs will say just about anything to get you to buy...

    Here's the original thread that the rumors first started from:

    http://community.basenotes.net/showt...&highlight=CDG

    The Incense series was mentioned as well in the above thread (so I wasn't crazy)...but in a later thread......

    http://community.basenotes.net/showt...&highlight=CDG

    ....the original poster corrected himself and said that it was only the Sweet, Synthetic, Sherbet and Red Series.

    I could understand maybe the Sweet or Synthetic series...but no way with the Incense and Red series.

    All and all..I guess will just have to wait and see.

    A month or so ago I went to the Chelsea CdG store to stock up on a few of the Reds, given the postings hereabouts about the discontinuations. The SA who rang up my sale was curious about my purchase, and I told him abut the rumored dropping of the various lines. He looked more than a little skeptical and promised to check into it, and the next time I stopped by he zipped over and assured me that, according to CdGHQ, there were no plans to do away with any of the frags. Obviously since then the Sweet line has officially been slated for oblivion, but the others?

    From a Luckyscent e-mail newsletter, 8th November:

    Discontinued
    Comme des Garcons: Sweet Series
    ...
    We have only a few pieces left remaining in stock. Sad to report: Burnt
    Sugar is already sold out (and gone for good).
    True, it's not straight from the horse's mouth - more the stableboy's mouth - but this would seem to confirm the demise of the Sweet series, at least.

    An item can be discontinued in one country while it can still be avl in an other country

    as an example Ma Griffe by Carven is avl in the UK and is discontinued in the USA

    I can't believe that CdG is going to stop production on their perfume empire over two, so-called luxe, duds!

    Well, so unusual to hear the information that something will NOT be discontinued. We hould probably get such confirmations about every single scent we like these days.
    Yet, we never know.

    Good news, thanks supermarky. Hope the SA your friend talked to is correct. I guess it might not hurt, for me to try to contact Comme des Garcons corporate, and ask them?
