    Default New Jazz & Rive Gauche bottles; reformulation?

    I was at two different stores today, and they carried two different versions of Jazz and RG.

    One carried the traditional and famous bottles, the other carried 80ml black cubic bottles ala Encre Noire with the respective names hatched onto them. They were priced much higher than the old bottles, so it could have been an EdP (I did not check to see)

    I was already covered in other things and had massive olfactory fatigue so I couldn't test the new bottles.

    Anyone heard about these? Completely new to me.

    I believe they came out not too long ago, although haven't personally see them yet. Someone already posted pictures of what they look like.

    Its a new collection from YSL, "niche like" with some classics and other discontinued fragrances.

    I expect Rive Gauche isnt discontinued, cause its one of my favorites of all time, easy in my top3

    Rive Gauche is still carried at many stores where I live, which is why I wonder if the fragrance itself is different; when the 125ml 50 euro can is still around, and they're charging nearly 90 euro for a 80ml now

    The thing with Rive Gauche is the cool mental container which is iconic and unequal. It is part of its charm and I hope this is a one off Ltd edition as changing that would be a step back marketing wise and for all of us who love the cool metal bottle.

    While the tin is awesome, it looks like empty, wich keeps me wanting to buy another bottle.

    Can anybody tell if there is any difference between the new Jazz and the original Jazz? Or is just the bottle design different and the pricing? Thanks in advance!
