    Default Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille....

    Where to buy? Google doesn't help me... And international shipping should be available.

    It's still in stock and will now be made part of their permanent collection.

    A very good choice.

    It should still be in stock in the Paris Guerlain boutique.

    Does this usually mean that the price will come down? I sure hope so.

    Depends which line it'll join. L'Art et la Matire' is priced like Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

    I very much doubt it. Think of how many angered customers they'll have to deal with if this happened (most of whom purchased bottles with the impression that it was a limited edition). Anyway, since late last year, the price increased by 5 Euros.

    One size (75ml) for 145 Euros (P&P is about 25 Euros).

    So that would be 170 Euro total.

    Quite expensive, I will first wait for my $6 sample to arrive!

    Thanks everyone!

    Yes but worth every cent, if you ask me. One spray is enough. Bought 3 bottles when it was 140 so don't hope it'll be too cheap in the near future...

    OK, maybe 1 one the wrist, 1 on the neck. Of course individual, but it's heavy-duty stuff...

    It's really nice. Turin doesn't like the fact that the fruity and sour part of the vanilla stands out, but I think it's a sublime composition with both very lush and very dry notes. One evening I put on 4 sprays to really smell it, and it just made me so embarrassingly self-conscious that I now only spray 1 or 2 - so in the long run, it's not that expensive...

    One of the best vanilla's that men can wear (in my opinion). I originally thought Labo's Vanille 44 was better, but now I start to think that Guerlain's SDV is better! I really enjoy it - particularly on weekends!

    I know it can be found - you might have to go to The Perfumed Court or elsewhere if you don't want to buy a whole bottle.

    I wore this out to a nightclub last Saturday. Mind you, this is NOT the type of fragrance I usually wear in club/dance situations (gourmands turn chokingly cloying in Miami humidity). But SDV worked like a charm and that boozy/vanilla chord cut through the smoke and nightclub smells quite nicely. Extremely comforting whiffs of it kept making their way up to my nose all night. I love this stuff.

    Oh Mike, sounds great! Thought smoke was banned in night clubs now (good for frags!)?

    SDV keeps giving me certain emotions. Even though it's a new perfume, I get the same sort of sentimental 'when-I-was-young' feeling like when I wear Habit Rouge (my 22-yo scent). Even though SDV is such a lush, rich scent, it has some kind of nostalgic/sad aura to me. Perhaps the rose combined with the vanilla? Not sure why...

    Not in Miami - cigarette smoking is allowed in nightclubs here, which always makes it a challenge for me (I quit smoking 4 years ago). That's why a lot of clubs here in S. Florida feature outside areas, where one can get away from the loud music and the cigarette smoke. A few new bars in Miami Beach are smoke-free...however those are the ones that are usually filled with customers who have the MOST horrible attitudes. Murphy's Law I guess.

    I can relate the melancholic aura of SDV Ulrik. I imagine it would smell quite perfect worn in some very solitary, isolated environment also (a day browsing an old, dusty book store; visiting the inside of a cathedral; a deep hike in the forest).

    I hate smoke ...

    In Holland you are allowed to smoke in clubs, but it will all end on July the first, from that day on it will not be allowed to smoke in nearly any public place, including nightclubs! Wooohooo!

    Ooh sorry this is off-topic! But my sample is still on it's way!

    Smoking was banned in bars, restaurants and night clubs here in NY a few years ago. Well inside. There are smoking areas on outside porches.

    Those still looking for SDV might also try the Guerlain boutique in Toronto (416-929-6114). I bought my bottle there in February, and the SA was extremely helpful - said they had recently ordered all the remaining stock of SDV from the Canadian Guerlain warehouse in Montreal. And of course they do shipping, which will very likely be less expensive from Canada than from France.

    Say DutchSmell: in the unlikely event that you shouldn't like SDV I'd be more than willing to buy or trade the remainder of the sample from/with you! I've been meaning to give this one a try myself.
