Marie Line Patry who is the National Fragrance Director for Guerlain was at Saks in Boca Raton Florida today. During our conversation I was mentioning that I have been searching for six months to find Derby in the small Bee Bottle, to my surprise, she said, no problem and handed me a brand new, never opened box containing Derby in the Bee Bottle.
Well, needless to say, I am now the proud owner of this marvelous fragrance in the only bottle it deserves to be in.
Congrats! Beautiful scent and presentation.
A caveat not to store your bottle with the atomizer bulb installed- I found out the hard way with my Philtre D'amour and Vetiver Pour Elle Bee bottles that the juice evaporates if left that way. Once I reinstalled the regular cap- no problems.

Every great perfume deserves a good home
Very nice! I couldn't deal with that atomizer though.
I waited for a bee bottle to appear on eBay too! Congrats, Derby is fantastic and it looks great in the bee!
I have that same bottle, much nicer than the ugly wooden one. +1 on what other said about the pump. Dab is the way to go, Derby is strong anyway.
Very nice. Enjoy
I'm jealous! And you are right, Derby NEEDS to be in Bee bottle.
I've trademarked the color bleu
Wow, congrats, that is really awesome. Am I to understand that she GAVE you a Derby bee bottle for free?
Also, why were you so set on the small bee bottle, does that mean it is vintage? I noticed that the label is in silver/black instead of gold, I wonder if that signifies anything.
FYI, I spotted some at the Nieman Marcus in Palo Alto, CA. Betcha could call the Guerlain counter if you're dying to get your hands on one.

So, are all bee bottles of Derby the same vintage? I was under the impression that some bee bottles might be vintage, but I don't know how to tell.
My Derby bee bottle has a white ribbon on top and a gold label. I wonder what the difference is also. It didn't come with a bulb atomizer either.
Just A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Congrats PalmBeach.
Very nice. Gonna have to admit to being jealous right now.

I felt a warm wave come over me as I look at the bottle and presentation.
Just out of my curiosity: why she ad a 125ml bottle with her?
