    Try imagining the mighty house of Guerlain falls down because it wasn't making enough money anymore. There goes your tradition.

    That's it. Can't blame them trying to make more profits and use technological advancements to do what couldn't be done earlier if they could.

    Did you like the fragrance that you sniffed? Do you want to wear that fragrance? To me, while I don't like reformulations, I understand the need for them, but I try to judge a fragrance on what I sniff today... and take it for what it is. That's all...

    We can have remorse for what was... or we can celebrate what is... I take what is today, and if I like it, I buy it, if I don't... I don't buy it. We speak with our spending money, don't we?

    this thread is demeaning to a house such as Guerlain. whats further more degrading is, that there is no humility in some members here. only arrogance.

    Mr. Guerlain might be very sad today to see these kinda threads on BN. hence no response. guys and "gurlz" we are talkin about Guerlain here. show some respect, will ya?

    Aaahhh.... good point. I hadn't thought of that (a warning label). So in other words, the IFRA rule changes are a convenient excuse for the companies to use cheaper ingredients? THAT is kinda rat fink, isn't it?

    I love the way people get emotional about fragrances. Makes the hobby so special. All other brands would be just that: brands. But a perfume brand is a 'house'.

    Sipping on something from the house of Pepsi right now.

    I don't think companies need that excuse.

    When they look at their balance sheets and find out that a certain scent would increase profits by reformulating it, maybe because Givaudan, IFF or whatever came up with a new synthetic molecule that is much cheaper and 99,9% like the old stuff, they'd hit it and reformulate the stuff.

    Guys, whether you want it or not, this is not charity. This is big heap $$$ business.

    Ooofff... respect for what? Humility for what? They are making fragrances for us... for the consumer... and if we speak (in the sense of we buy or don't buy) that we are dissatisfied with the product, one would hope they would listen.
