    Default Guerlain to re-release Arsen Lupin duo

    Guerlain is now re-releasing the scents Arsene Lupin (formerly Arsene Lupin Dandy) and Voyou (formerly Arsene Lupin Voyou).

    I like the former Dandy scent, a wonderful violet leather.

    These scents were taken off shelves this year due to a trademark conflict with the word "dandy," trademarked in Europe in 2008, if memory serves.

    I wonder if the word "bleue" will be trademarked, as well?

    Watch out, those who enjoy scents with the words "blue" or "bleu."

    Happily, Guerlain has a very genuine pedigree to which it can refer. It has no need to boast or make up its history.

    I think this was the case a few months ago as I can get them from the Guerlain counter.

    Actually I'm running a split of the wonderful Arsene Lupin now and can thoroughly recommend it.

    I tried one of these (I think it was Dandy) and really enjoyed it... It was the first time I ever clearly perceived 'guerlinade'. Pleasant memory. I look forward to the opportunity to try these again.

    Good news indeed on Arsene Lupin (dare I say "Dandy"). Very similar to Amouage Dia Man, but I view that as a very *good* thing. Voyou they could have left on the chopping block to my taste though. ;-)

    I bought a bottle of Arsene Lupin a couple of months ago in a bottle identical to the former Dandy version (wood surround etc).
