    Default Diptyque Opone being withdrawn?

    I got a mailer from, I think, Luckyscent saying that was going away and that Diptyque was also going to end the 200mL bottles. (I'm pretty sure other Basenoters go the same mail)

    Does anyone have confirmation from Diptyque or another source for this?

    The mailer is from lusciouscargo.com.

    I haven't looked at in any depth yet.

    In the LC e-mail they say

    "The more panic-inducing including the elimination of: the 200ml scents... and the following EDTs (in both sizes): L'Autre, Eau d'Elide, Opone, L'Eau Trois, Virgilio. Read it and weep..."

    This is very bad. I only tried Eau d'Elide from this list. Why do they do this?????

    This sucks. I had intended at some point to get Eau d'Elide, now I guess I'll have to do it soon.

    I like Eau d'Elide for its shock value (to me, anyway). It smells like a punch in the face. If you've ever been sucker punched in the nose, you'll know the smell/taste/sensation. It's hard to describe, but something about Eau d'Elide captures that-- along with oranges and herbs. Kind of a freaky scent.

    I also hear they're releasing three new EDTs this year, but it's lousy that they're discontinuing these.

    Must grab Opone soon then, the others I don't care for.

    I wanted to love Eau d'Elide, but in reality, I was not so keen...
    I had to pass on my sample as it smelled of old ladie's face powder that had been sitting on their dusty dresser for decades. Strange how many different interpretations can be made of the same scent!

    Glad I have a full bottle of Opone.
