    Default Guerlain Derby 125ml Bee bottle?

    Came across this recently and I had no idea that this was ever a thing...a 125ml bee bottle of Guerlain Derby? With a batch code dating it at 2015. I'll attach a picture but I've never seen this before until now! So my question is, would this be a solid buy at around the $200 mark or is it no different than what is currently in stores (besides the pretty bottle).

    I have not tried this particular release of Derby but I would definitely say it's worth that asking price.

    I have that bottle, from maybe 2011, and it's great stuff! I think usd 200 is a great price.

    Can't relate to current juice though...

    I own the same bottle, mine is also more from around 2010-11. The content is excellent, so I'd expect this to be the same.

    If the fragrance is still good that is a good buy.

    I think the bee bottles are pretty close to the 1985 release, perhaps a little less oakmoss and darkness, but not much.

    My bee bottle is from about 2009. it is missing the dark brown velvet ribbon at the neck. When the new square wooden bottle came out, the formulation changed to be "fresher" somehow.
