    Default Chèvrefeuille Original is discontinued.

    I just had a response to my enquiry about it from Orange Square, Creed's distributor here in the UK.
    Also several fragrances are listed as out of stock. IFRA reformualtions anyone?

    That's a shame. Well, there's always ebay, and basenotes members who can hook you up if you need it!

    many of creed classics are being discontinued if they are not made by olivier they are at risk.

    You mean the older ones?

    In a way, I guess it's inevitable - if you think of Creed with dozens of fragrances, adding several each year, how is it possible to sustain sales of so many fragrances? You end up competing with yourself and pushing some of your stuff to the margins in order to promote new stuff.

    I think it's the same with Lutens - I remember Lutens had claimed that they wouldn't discontinue anything when they started - but with at least 2 new ones each year, I was thinking that eventually they'd be diluting their market too much, and it looks like it's happened. Though at least with them, the discontinued will still be available in paris.

    I think the sagging world economy must have something to do with it as well.

    It may also be issues of IFRA regulations. For example Citrus Bigarade is a citrus chypre - I would guess it is full of now-restricted ingredients.

    If you love any of these older fragrances, past experience tells me that stocking up on a bottle or two would be prudent.

    What would be in Citrus Bigarade that would make it full of banned ingredients?

    Agreed regarding stock levels; most of the non-millesimes seem to be out of stock and have been for weeks at least. I snapped up maybe their last bottle of Acier a while ago and they still seem to be out of stock.

    Is this true in North America too? I really don't have the money right now to be hunting down my fav EDTs or anything else for that matter!

    So it's not just the Private collection? Is there a list of stuff that's being phased out?

    Baie de Genievre,Bois de Cedrat,Citrus Bigarrade,Epicea,Royal Delight, and Vetiver, many of the classic women perfumes as well, many of the older edts as well. Basically anything not made by Olivier is at risk and will be phased out first.

    Is this speculation, or has there been an official word on this?

    I know they discontinued Tabarome, Cypres Musc, Angelique Encens and one more which I don't remember, but I never heard of anything else.
