    Default Reliable source for MPG Ambre Precieux?

    Does anyone know a reliable source that still has Ambre Precieux in stock? I did a google search but I haven't heard of any of the sites that still have it listed.

    MpG is going to become all the rage as they seem to be going bye-bye. You're looking for one of their most popular offerings, it's going to be difficult. I would try e-bay. Happy hunting.

    It saddens me to see such a wonderful house slowly disappear off the radar. I hope it's only temporary. I bought AP from Beauty Encounter a couple of months ago. It was just before stocks started drying up.

    I called a reputable english fragrance store today Les Senteurs and enquired about MPG.... apparently MPG have distribution problems and have stopped distributing their scents for now. Its not clear whether they have closed or not indefinitely.

    i am recieving a bottle of Ambre priciex from MPG paris.
    so they still have them in production in paris.

    I spoke to Art director of MPG.... all the frags will be availabble in Paris.

    Default Re: Reliable source for MPG Ambre Precieux?

    So, are they scaling back to just having one boutique in Paris (instead of their previous two) and no international distribution? That seems like an extreme scale back! If you look back through some of the previous MPG threads this year, you'll find that various people associated with MPG have said various, sometimes conflicting, things to different people. In the meantime, their fragrances continue to disappear worldwide. Who knows what is going on, but I'm glad you were able to get a bottle from Paris! They don't sell from their website, which also hasn't been updated in ages, so I guess you have to write to them or call. People should post whenever they have direct contact with MPG until we get a clearer sense of what may be happening.

    Moreda, what are the prices - if you don't mind me asking - for a bottle direct from MPG Paris?

    If their scents are still available I can stall stocking up on them now when I really don't have a ton of disposable income (and want to get Lyric first, anyhow).

    Thanks!

    That's a relief. Can you elaborate - that means they have their one store in Paris, plus they ship to the EU from paris?


    About the pricing - they only have 100ml and regular price at most online shops is about $110 USD, a bit less than in europe.

    i dont know the excact prise in paris.
    i just gave her my CC number.

    but i remmember it it was sold for €95 in Amsterdam and only one store used to sell them.
    so, maybe is this the reason why it was expenssive.
    but lets wait and see.

    I believe they only come in 100ml bottles (now).

    It might also be worth calling PIR in NYC to see what stock they have.

    Maybe they just want to be more niche.

    If that's the case, this is a pretty extreme example of attempting to do that. It also doesn't jibe with their recent reformulations, which seem to have been intended to change them enough to appeal to a larger, less adventurous, audience. Not to mention that they made the bottles bigger without raising the price. Those decisions don't sound like part of a plan to become "more niche" to me.

    Well, you know the french. They're a pretty crazy bunch of people.

  27. #27

    Default Re: Reliable source for MPG Ambre Precieux?

    Don't forget that they opted for a more standardized bottle which has a piss poor spraying mechanism as opposed to the old bottle which had a wonderful sprayer...they don't want to be more niche, they want to cut costs and continue to be in business.

    Default Re: Reliable source for MPG Ambre Precieux?

    They have not responded to any of my countless emails either (which they did in the past!).

    Or maybe they could either be going through a change of ownership (???) ... or perhaps just starting to "feel the pinch" from this crappy economy at the mo'. ... (There seem to be companies going bust everywhere lately!)

    Otherwise holding back on global distribution doesn't sound like a smart move, unless you are forced into it. ... Surly???

    Either way ... I certainly hope that I shall soon become very friendly with some Parisian BN'r (LOL)

    Assuming one can find them, what would be a good price US for 100 ml bottles of Ambre Precieux, Santal Noble or Route de Vetiver?

    $112 or under is a good price for AP or SL (if you can find them, which is doubtful). If you really want them and find them, you should probably jump at the chance to pay a bit more than that. The reformulated (100 ml) bottles of RdV are still around some places. Beauty Habit has it on sale for $84.

    A number of places put their MPG stuff on sale once they learned they wouldn't be getting anymore shipments, but those places sold out quickly. I saw some stuff for half off for awhile, but no more. When you factor in shipping and taxes in some places, $122 is a more reasonable price for any MPG fragrance.

    Well, Tonyprince, I found some for you before, maybe I can do it again

    I don't know if they do indeed have some in stock, but this store http://www.theboyscosmetics.com/store/contact_us.php is listing all the MPGs and while the photos are of the 90 ml bottles, the listing says 100 ml.

    Hopefully, some who are still looking can find some.

    A few people have picked up on my hints but I have a number of bottles of Amber Precieux (100ml) for sale BNIB. Go ahead and PM if you are trying to track this one down. I would post a sales thread but I don't have that privilege yet. In addition I have some Santal Noble (90 ml), Jardin Du Nil (90ml), Secrete Melenage (90ml), Racine (90ml), Centaur (90ml), Jenune Homme (90ml), and a few unboxed bottles of Grain de Plaisir.
