    Default Has Bulgari Black been discontinued?

    Heard so at the local departmental store, so just wanted to confirm. Thanks!

    It is still on their website and I doubt they will discontinue this "modern classic".
    My experience with department stores is they want to make you believe everything is discontinued that they don't carry. :-)

    Yeah and they want to sell you something they do carry. Sales assistents in department stores can be notoriously ill-informed.

    Discontinuing a top tenner from Perfumes The Guide would be crackers! Bulgari can't be that idiotic. Yeah, it's probably not a money-maker, but it's a real star in perfumery's sidewalk.

    It disappeared quite a while ago from most department stores in the UK. I got the idea certain countries no longer sell it.

    On another forum a member sent emails to Bulgari UK and Bulgari USA about black. The UK response was that it was being discontinued in the UK. The US response was that there were no plans to discontinue it there.

    Probably just a reflection of how well Black sells in the respective markets.

    Maybe Midnight In Paris killed it.

    I've never seen it in a UK shop, although it is on some websites.

    I have a really hard time finding it here in Canada, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was being discontinued in certain places.

    In the case that it does become discontinued worldwide, you can easily find a bottle in any department store in Japan. They had stockpiles of it in every store while I was there. I'm sure you could source one for cheap form a Japanese online retailer.

    Von Maur, a US department store chain mainly in the Midwest but expanding nationwide, still carries Bvlgari Black in stores and on their website.

    On a related note, Bvlgari fragrances have a huge amount of shelf space (both women's and men's) at the Von Maur here, more than any other brand.

    Absolutely love it BTW.

    Saw it a few days at a mall kiosk, but that's really no indication one way or the other.

    Don't see it for sale at any department stores, but a specialty fragrance store around here still has a couple of bottles.

    It would be a shame if it was discontinued, though. It is probably in my top five of all time. Love that stuff.

    Not to change the subject but I found the same situation with Blv Pour Homme, it appears the women's version was phased out.
