    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.

    I hope not as well. It is wonderful and would love another bottle when my current one is gone.

    Perhaps it's something to do with the impending bottle change?

    Now it is part of the L'Art et La Matiere line so now it comes in the same type of bottle as Tonka Imperiale, Cuir beluga and these other Guerlain exclusives. Or so I have heard? Just checked Guerlain's website and it is not there!

    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).

    I like both bottles really.

    It would look nicer alongside the others from that line now though, I suppose.

    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 )

    The new bottle is here already, FWIW.

    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

    Same here. My decant is almost empty. Easy decision, this one. Must buy.

    With SDV is this anything like Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille or is this tuned down?

    Not at all. Smells good. I'm going for Tonka Imperiale before this one though.

    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.

    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.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Is it just a bottle changed, or does it smell at all different too?
