    Default Is Spiriteuse Double Vanille gone?

    Can't find it online at Saks, Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman any longer.

    I haven't heard anything to that effect. That would be bad for those who don't have it and have been debating getting it.

    It's part of the L'Art et la Matiere line now. From what I have heard, even though it's out of stock all over the States, it's not being discontinued. I'm looking for a bottle as well. TPC is supposed to get their samples mid Feb. I think. So maybe that's when retailers will have it back in stock? Just a guess. I really hope it isn't discontinued.

    This is what I was referring to.

    Maybe they want to be sure all the old style bottles are off the shelves before the new ones arrive. It's kind of stupid, but fragrance companies seem to do stupid things from time to time (see Thierry Mugler).

    Though the L'art et la Matiere bottles are nice too, with SDV, I prefer it in the original design.

    Default Re: Is Spiriteuse Double Vanille gone?

    Last December i got mine from neiman marcus and it might be one of a few last bottles with the old design, coz after that, it was sold out everywhere ( with the exception of nordstrom at that time and they are selling it with the L'art bottle).

    In Paris however, they have already changed into the L'art bottle design since the last time i was there ( beginning of October last year )

    It's available at Nordstrom but currently they are sold out on the website. I spoke to Nordstrom beauty because I had one on order from last year but they had to cancel the order because the people at Guerlain weren't prepared for all of the Nordstrom customers ordering so many of the L'Art fragrances because the bottles are hand crafted. They're working now on getting more to Nordstrom

    Tobacco Vanille is basically a mainstream version of SDV – louder, brasher but not as complex or refined.

    I really like the old bottle compared to the new, but maybe because that's how I first saw it. Still, the front makes it look like some kind of aged liquor or something.

  28. #28

    Default Re: Is Spiriteuse Double Vanille gone?

    Boy, that new bottle seems like it abandons any pretense at unisex and goes right for the feminine. I much prefer the older.

    Tobacco Vanille is really very little like Double Vanille, although they share half their name. TV is vanilla-ish, but has at least half its smell come from tobacco (and some say the tobacco is more than half). Double Vanille is total, straight, boozy, slightly powdery vanilla.

    I love them both.

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed

    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte

    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    SDV is set to be rereleased in a month or so, according to boutique personnel, but at a higher price point. How much higher, they could not say.

    Based on the current UK price, it will be nearly 50% more than its original price, when it first came out (£100).

    If its $235 with the new bottle then jump on that or else youll be paying $250, either way they are expensive as hell lol. Like both bottles but like the newer one more, it matches with the others in the line and from what ive heard SDV has been selling very well and the demand for them since they were temporarily taken off shelves is nuts.

    I have sampled this and now my opinion is a 180 from my initial sampling some time ago.

    I love THIS! Not just a blast of vanilla and tobacco, but the drydown is so complex. As The Scented Salamander noted: "The perfume is unisex but offers the pleasing sensation of an old-school Victorian floral masculine scent, hidden somewhere in the recesses of the fragrance."

    No WONDER that is why I love this so much!

    I still like Eau des Baux, but I adore SDV.
