    Default Eau noire discontinued

    I think this has been discussed before but I thought I would mention it. I bought a bottle today in Selfridges Dior boutique only to find they had large bottles only. I did manage to buy 125ml in Harrods but it was confirmed it will no longer be available after stock runs out.
    Took me 8 years to get around to loving this so I'm glad I just made it before it's gone.

    This really sucks ! Thanks for letting us know. Eau Noire is a modern classic now surely.

    Mitzah, Vetiver, now Eau Noire, the best are going. But I think there is still lots of old stocks in the stores, if one needs.

    I was told it was because of poor sales. But then the SA told me one man recently bought 10 large bottles upon hearing of its demise!
    I work in sales myself and I would be buzzing if I made a sale like that. Makes no sense to me.

    Obviously that man either likes it a lot, or he is thinking about selling it in the future.

    She also mentioned every time a scent is discontinued a new one will take its place. Hope that means a new one soon.

    There has been talk of Mitzah and Vetiver being discontinued for quite a while now. But big bottles of both are readily available. Never inquired about smaller bottles so not sure.

    Starting such rumors is not a bad way to drum up flagging sales IMHO. Eau Noire is too much of an oddball for me; I respect it but I certainly won't miss it.

    This is terrible news (in the fragrance world anyway) and a very brave creation which I enjoyed wearing, has gone

    kusum65 - thanks for the news. That was the nudge I needed to get off the fence. I've been procrastinating buying a replacement bottle after swapping away the first one I bought. I soon regretted it.

    Very disappointing news. It's one of the best in the line.

    Hopefully they stay the hell away from Leather Oud!

    I was told by the manager at the Dior boutique in Las Vegas where I purchased these when they first came out, that once the stock is depleted - that's it. They would not be getting any more.

    Agreed hippo! Beauties like Vetiver and now EN go to the chopping block while others ( I won't mention names of blah privee releases like bois d argent ) remain untouched . Even speak of Leather Oud or Oud Ispahan being discontinued , and you will have a fight on your hands Dior !!!

    I'm afraid I'll be one of the very few to NOT miss this one. I'm a big immortelle freak but Eau Noire is sickening sweet IMO. Meh...sorry guys.

    Agree, could be a scare tactic and as a result people panic and buy on the spot. Having a hard time believing that it's on the chopping block right now.

    I really enjoy the scent, it's a classic case of a love/hate fragrance. Few have said they find it alright.
