    Default Pure Havane Discontinuing?!?!

    I have found some evidence that may suggest that Thierry Mugler has already taken its initial steps to discontinuing Pure Havane:

    1). Thierry Mugler has taken down Pure Havane from their online Boutique

    2). No additional shipments of Pure Havane will be brought into department stores ie: Macy's Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue

    3). At least half (or more) of the department stores have already sold out

    *2 & 3 got my sources from several SA from Nordstrom and Macy's

    Anyone want to elaborate on this?

    It's a limited edition release for 2011. What did you expect?

    Snap it up while you can.
    It's great.
    Hands down the best yet of the A*Men line.
    But of note...I've gotten more comments from dudes wanting to know what it was than from girls.....

    I was expecting Pure Havane to be available for purchasing through end of 2011.

    None of the "Pures" have been available for more then 4-5 months from what I've seen.

    Exactly when were Pure Coffee and Pure Malt released and discontinued?

    The worst thing about that, it's that it seems to be a limited edition for USA. Here in Spain it never arrived! Grrrr

    Lol. It was available online here just for 1 month. I didnt expect anything else from Muglers. It seems that they are releasing this stuff just for collectors and ebayers.

    I will persuade the customer services of my local fragrance boutique, as well as of the online fragrance retailers I usually buy from to transmit my suggestion of stocking up Pure Havane to their management

    Though, the house of Mugler could adopt a policy, should the profitability, the return of investment of Pure Havane justify this, to do what certain other designer and niche houses did, discontinue now- re-release later

    How about re-releasing Pure Malt and Pure Coffee, they'd be bringing in profit guarantee.

    I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Expect to find it on Fragrance.net and similar places throughout 2012. I'd get worried in 2013 or so. ;-)

    If it's a limited edition should't it be avalable while supply last?
    It shouldn't have nothing to do with how many years or months, or a certain date to be taken out of the shelves. Once they run out, its gone. Right?

    I'll stick to wearing New Haarlem and buying Mugler fragrances for the sole purpose of buying and selling.

    Pretty much sums it up right there. My guess would be that they perfectly time the discontinuation of one limited release with the news of the next limited release so as to create frenzy for the new one.

    I thought I was going to be really disappointed with this fragrance, but it grew on me and I ended up liking this fragrance a lot!

    I'm sorry to be such a grinch but given the fact that it's close to impossible to obtain here in Germany without ordering blind and from overseas I'l be thankful for every bit of LESS talk about it.

    It's too hard to stay strong if stuff is so hyped here

    Hey man I'd recommend blind buying it now since it's going to be hard to get later on. If you don't like it you can put up for swap or sell it. I'm sure there would be a lot of people out there who will be desperate to getting a bottle like six months from now.

    Exactly!

    Not to mention the concentrated EdP version...

    I was talking to a SA at Macy's the other day and he said that they only received 6 bottles of Pure Havane--all of which sold within 1 month. That was apparently puzzling to him because he says he usually gets around 30 units of a limited edition frag.
    Time to musk up.

    UPDATE: Nordstrom, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue have taken Pure Havane down from online ordering website. That just leaves Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.

    As people have said it's a Limited Edition and they are launching new limited editions so they are likely removing it to make room for them. The new A*MEN limited edition is based on an addition of (unofficially) Tabasco sauce - more info here

    And I mean that both ways.
    1. that idea should be chopped.
    2. Here is your basket: Octopus, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and asparagus...GO !!

    Seriously ? Fermented hot peppers and vinegar ? Mixed with chocolate, vanilla, tar, and patchouli ?

    ^ ever had chili chocolate?

    It'll work somehow, Mugler knows what they're doing

    As for Pure Havane being discontinued...its a limited edition and was bound to happen. Good thing I got mine awhile ago. I don't even wear it, it's pretty mediocre. I WILL be selling it for a nice profit

    UPDATE to your UPDATE: Lord & Taylor also had some, and I ordered 2 bottles Friday. As of this morning they are out of stock along with Nieman Marcus. The only retailer online that I can find that has any in stock is Bloomingdales.
