    Default Confirmed: Philtre d'Amour and Attrape-Cur will retire

    Lately, we've read in different places that Guerlain will discontinue Philtre d'Amour, Attrape-Cœur and Liu. Especially Philtre d'Amour is loved by many men on BN.

    Today, I got it confirmed that Philtre d'Amour and Attrape-Cœur will retire, while Liu stays in production.

    The SA agreed that the new stricter oakmoss rules could be the cause, and she further told that the reason that Guerlain goes a long way to keep Mitsouko on the market and not the exclusive scents, is that the latter sell to little to cover the costs of the reformulation work. So what about Derby? I forgot to ask about that one. Does it contain a lower level of oakmoss? One wouldn't say by smelling it. The SA also told that the Guerlain staff deeply regrets all the Parisiennes discontinuations since people from time to time still ask for Quand Vient l't and Plus Que Jamais...

    Nuit d'Amour will join the Parisiennes after summer 2010.

    So on to the stocking up! One Parisienne is 155 Euros without the atomizer.

    Ack!

    Philtre d'Amour is one of my faves...how sad. Hopefully it will be many, many years before it becomes scarce and impossible to find. Thanks for the warning Ulrik.

    I'm sure this news will be tearing through the perfume blogosphere very quickly.

    I sure hope this means, if Guerlain is discontinuing some of the fragrances in the Les Parissienes line - that this means that Guerlain will start re-releasing other discontinued fragrances in the bee bottles in the future.

    With all the IFRA regulations coming into play, I wouldn't hold my breath on this. I respect Guerlain's decision not to reformulate PdA and A-C to comply with the new restrictions. But this is a great, artistic loss.
