    Default Viloressi Vetiver discontinued

    I can confirm that Lorenzo Viloressi Vetiver has been discontinued. The fragrance shop I visited in Budapest called the company and it is no more. Managed to buy the last 100ml bottle at 1/3rd off though. Lovely scent.

    Thanks for confirming.

    I may pick up a backup. Galeries Lafayette's stock is ancient. From around 3 years ago.

    If I do get a backup it won't be because it's phenomenal but because it's such a unique and raw take on Vetiver.

    for swap/sale:

    Thanks for the information.

    Well how about that?
    The scent I consider the absolute best vetiver scent I've ever come across gets discontinued.
    That is sad.
    Cheers,
    Renato

    Very sad. I don't understand this trend.

    IF you like Villoresi's take on Vetiver - give Mona di Orio a try.

    Villoresi is making some bad decisions these days, IMHO. Maybe that's why his most recent fragrances have gone virtually ignored. Sad. I'm glad I've got a back-up bottle of his Vetiver. My bottles of Garofano and Incensi are probably full enough to last me the rest of my life, given that I don't wear those two very often.

    Is it just me or are houses beginning to axe/discontinue their vetiver based scents? Just something I've realized.

    Could you provide more examples?

    Vetiver scents are often axed because they often don't sell that well.
    Vetiver scents are often released because they are easy (cheap) to formulate and produce.

    Default Scent

    According to the manager of the fragrance shop who sold me the last bottle, L'artisan is axing half it's fragrances due to new eu regulations on ingredients.

    And some people eventually figure out that vetiver essential oils are just as rewarding (if not more) to wear and is a cheaper to boot.
