    Default Where can I buy Spiritueuse Double Vanille?

    I searched the internet and found nothing but great reviews. There is one on Ebay, but I don't like buying cologne from Ebay.

    Call Saks 5th Ave in Boston, they have the whole collection of Guerlain. Ask for Chris, he is a love.

    There is only one, in Prudential Center. I don't believe there are any cities which have more than one Saks. Even in New York there is just the original on Fifth Avenue.

    You're right, there's only one Saks in Boston. I called more than once and they transferred me to the cologne dept., but no one ever answered the phone. ????

    The Neiman Marcus in San Francisco has a great Guerlain boutique. You can ask for Josie.

    Did you ever get any luck in buying it?

    Seems weird you can't buy it anywhere online... I would think it would be on the Neiman Marcus or Saks web sites, but it isn't.

    Isn't the retail on this around US$225?

    I often see "hard to find", "rare" tagged on the descriptions, and I believe it has proved effective for sellers luring the unsuspecting. I just noticed a tester listed at 325USD.

    This is the ebayer seller who NEVER uploads a photo for whatever fragrance he/she is selling. Right?

    In this particular instance, the pic is a generic one. I don't frequent ebay very often and haven't seen other listings (maybe I did but haven't paid attention to) from the seller, so I can't comment. Should the seller (store: HARD TO FIND FRAGRANCES) be avoided? 97% positive feedback.
    Edit: just went thru all the other listings from this seller, and yes, they are either generic pics or NONE at all.

    Lightbulb Re: Where can I buy Spiritueuse Double Vanille?

    Just posting to let everyone know I called Saks in New York and asked for the fragrance department. I spoke with a very nice lady named Christina. She does have a bit of a strong Asian accent (Japanese I think) but she is definitely understandable as long as you pay extra attention. She is very friendly and helpful.

    She did in fact have Spiritueuse Double Vanille available. She said it is only sold in the New York Boutique, and not online. It is $250. [Edit - After receiving the order, I found I was only charged $220.]

    She also mentioned she had a Chocolate Vanille available from Guerlain. I may have misheard her, as I can't seem to find any reference to such a creature online. It may be something very new? I didn't order it.

    I don't want to publicly post her direct line, but you can call 800-330-8497, then hit the option to be transferred to Saks stores, and the first option is the New York store. Select that, then hit option 6 for customer service, then ask for Christina in fragrances.

    Hope that's helpful for anyone trying to get their hands on a bottle. It sure is better than paying $300+ on eBay.

    I received my order today. It turns out I was charged $220, not $250. Either Christina misspoke or I misheard her (probably the latter).

    It is an amazing blend of tobacco and vanilla, leaning more toward tobacco. The tobacco is a very "true" tobacco, meaning it smells closer to a real tobacco absolute as opposed to the synthetic accords that are much more common in fragrances with tobacco notes. In addition to that, there is a mix of subtle ambery notes that is VERY pleasant indeed.

    If you like tobacco, amber, and vanilla, you'll love this.I thought I found a real winner with Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille but Spiritueuse Double Vanille puts it to shame.

    That's really weird. I get hardly any tobacco from SdV, sure there is *some* but really to me it's ALL about that vanilla. TV on the other hand is far more about tobacco, so much so, that I don't even consider these in the same category. Judging them against each other doesn't really make sense to me, TV is tobacco tinged with vanilla whereas SdV is the exact opposite.

    Does anyone know where I can buy SDV in the UK or online from France (I don't speak French so am not confident conversing via phone or email)? For the price of a large decant from TPC, I might as well get a bottle.

    bubby, I wouldn't worry about calling the Champs Ellysses store. There are a few SAs who can speak English quite well.

    Thanks Trebor,
    Is it not possible to get in the UK? I'm not even sure if I can say SDV correctly. I'm reminded of a long conversation with a French colleague.

    Me: "I'm going to Boulogne next week, isn't that where you're from?"
    Him: Where?
    Me: Boulogne.
    Him: Where?
    Me: Boulogne.
    Him: I've never heard of that place. I'm from Boulogne.
    Me: Yeah, that's what I said, Boulogne.
    Him: Where?
    Me: Boulogne, the place you just said!
    Him: Ahhh, Boulogne.

    Any idea of the price of SDV at the moment? I can't really afford it, but I spilled a small amount of my decant on the dressing table last week and even now the smell is making me want to bathe in it!

    I know how 0.2ml sample vial of SDV turned me on and gave me sleepless nights until I bought a bottle....I bought it from someone on the board...

    You can perhaps check the sales thread (link below) of board member 'xmen' here and contact him if he has a bottle for sale....He did have one, I remember. You are just 2 days late to post this and I did see two bottles of SDV getting sold on the basenotes sales board in the last 2 days..

    Like gupts I tried a small sample - which I almost ordered totally randomly from TPC - and could not get it out of my head until I bought a bottle. SDV has so many layers and it clings to me all day and into the night. My only problem is how fast I'm going through my bottle.
