    Default Balmain Ambre Gris

    I was looking around a local department store today and I saw a promotional Balmain display stand, and Ambre Gris was centre stage. It looked like they are starting to push this fragrance -which is encouraging, as I know many people have had difficulty finding it.

    There seems to be some difficulty in the States obtaining this if N_Tesla's commentary is anything to go by. It is still available at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and online at major e-tailers such as luckyscent, essenza-nobile and firstinfragrance (ausliebezumduft) though.
    Did you happen to see the price in your local store?

    I'm always seeing it heavily discounted on line (here it is for $24: http://www.beautyandskin.com/product...s-for-Her.aspx) which makes me laugh when I see it at Colette Paris for full price. But it is getting harder to find these days.

    It was 86 euro. Somehow I expected it to be more than that for full retail.

    Thanks Ruggles! I am going to buy some now!

    EDIT: Oh, it's out of stock, of course!

    Lucky Scent in Los Angeles have it. Be warned, this is NOT discounted:

    An ebay seller is hawking it for 55USD (8 shipping). Tempting.

    I hope everyone gets a chance to try Ambre Gris. As you know I fell for this fragrance a while ago and have not looked back. I just hope it continues in production. Good hunting.

    I wish I had snapped it up when I was stalking it at discounters. I sniff it at Neimans every once and a while, but keep thinking the discount stock will return some day. Gorgeous scent.

    Not crazy about Ambre Gris, I traded my bottle - but happy hunting to those who seek it!
