    Default Five O'Clock Au Gingembre discontinued

    I got an email from Luckyscent saying that this was being discontinued -- is this news for everyone else as well?

    Also in the same email it mentions Tea for Two being discontinued (the first semi-official announcement of its discontinuation that I've seen). Weird how these two tea/ginger scents are simultaneously retiring, wonder if there is some kind of IFRA issue with ingredients they both use?

    I saw that too.

    Personally I am sad to see Tea for Two being retired. I don't really care about Five O'Clock Au Gingembre.

    Thanks for the info. I like Five O' Clock and might just have to get a backup bottle now.

    Received a memo about it also. Maybe it wasn't a big seller.

    But do you people think that it's being discontinued, drawn back to the exclusive line or simply that Luckyscent is no longer stocking it?

    I had a couple of samples of this and while I liked it, I didn't ever consider purchasing.

    oh no! I really do care for 5 o' clock (not that much for tea 4 two). Still got half a bottle. Should I stock up as well?

    I don't think it's being d/c I think it's going to the exclusive Paris boutique line.

    It's strange finding out that some fragrances are not as popular as one thought, isn't it? I know a lot of people who like 5o'CAG, as do I. It is also a prety smooth one, so I can't really understand why it didn't make it.

    Five o'clock is still on the French Lutens website as a spray bottle. I will look around in sephoras and co to see if they still stock it. Funny the only Lutens I like. Tea for two is momentarily unavailable on French Artisan website.
