As background: I'm into commitment with fragrances. I don't have a wardrobe of different scents, I have one for work (maybe one for weekend) and one for evening/special occasion. I do the layering thing-body wash, lotion, then fragrance. I'm kinda OCD about the layering thing.
I have just recently been introduced to and fallen in love with Dior Addict. For evening/special occasion, obviously. While the shower gel still appears on dior.com, I am having a devil of a time acquiring it in real life. I finally got a bottle off eBay after two other attempted purchases resulted in refunds for unavailability.
So here's my question: If a product is still featured on the manufacturer's website, it still exists...right? I mean, regardless of industry, companies don't keep discontinued products on their websites, you know?
I have a second question, come to think of it. Does discontinuation of a fragrance's associated products (shower gels, body creams, etc) tend to foreshadow discontinuation of the frag itself?
Thank you kindly for sharing any insights you may have!!
