    Default LIDGE Reformulation?

    What are the chances we'll see a reformulation of this excellent perfume? I ask because I recently had to replace my original bottle of Chanel Allure and was disgusted to find that the modern reformulation (2007 vs 2013) had lost all of its power and clout.

    The new version smells almost like Diet Allure, very light and almost like its missing something.

    Which brings me onto LIDGE - I always felt this was in the same category as Allure and read in another thread that Guerlain perpetually "reinvent" their fragrances and I really enjoy this one the way it is, so what are the chances of a reformulation?

    I may just get a couple of bottles and stash them as I now wish I'd done with Allure, another great scent down the pan...

    Please stop the reformulations. It makes us buy 10 different types of the same damn cologne. Anyone think they started using this as a marketing strategy? after realizing people are so concerned about reformulations or batch variations.

    That would be a profitable error on Guerlain's behalf.

    Pre-reformulation paranoia?

    If buying a backup will give you peace of mind, go for it. It's worth it.

    Honestly, I have never known any other version of Allure.
    None of them seem to have good longevity and sillage.
    I think the whole Allure line is hugely overrated IMO.

    i first saw the title of this on the board and almost screamed. i just bought a bottle of LIDGE not too long ago and it has shot up to the top to compete with DHI as my favorite. i might get a backup bottle of this just in case (paranoia setting in)

    If the TdH reformulation is anything to go by, I now appreciate why you guys always moan on here about reformulations. But seriously, I am now so hacked off with TdH, I may never buy another bottle again when my current EdT runs out.

    Really? The original version that came out around 2000 was amazing, a true gem as it had all day and night longevity and dropped sillage bombs wherever you may go. The next one I got was 2007 and that was fine too and only recently ran out, the latest one however is like water in comparison to wine - Wet and thats about where the similarity ends.

    Thats why I was so happy with LIDGE - It reminded me of the 'hit' that I used to get off Allure and it got me thinking as it only comes in 75ml bottles and mines only got about half left.

    Thats the exact level of difference between the original Allure and the reformulation, if you compare them side by side on each wrist one seems like a watered down/missing vital components of the other one. If you haven't tried LIDGE you really should, tis a nosegasm.

    The LIDGE reformulation paranoia starts here.

    Well tbh, it is possible, considering Guerlain has reformulate practically every fragrance it has , but for the moment , LIDGE is fine as it is.
