    Default Mouchoir de Monsieur Discontinued

    Guerlain reps @ The Bellagio shop confirmed Mouchoir de Monsieur is now out of production. Any fans should start stocking up.

    It's still listed on the Guerlain site. I'd take anything from Reps or Sales Associates with a grain of salt as they're notoriously misinformed.

    True most of the time.

    Have checked and so far, German and Austrian Douglas (possibly other perfume retailers with a diversified online selection in stock) still have it and at normal, neither lavishly increased but not heavily discounted, clearance sale price (should both of these radical price developments be a sign for discontinuation) within their regular assortment

    Agreed. Especially for lesser known frags that are often discontinued from a certain sales-zone.

    I am actually trying to find a bottle now and am having some difficulty. It is not on the Guerlain website anymore, and the only place that seems to carry it is Selfridges, however shipping is $30 to the US which is to steep for me.
    Scent is an exercise in patience and imagination.

    You'll have it in two days though as they use DHL Express. Might be one of the only remaining ways to get it.

    I would prefer to utilize a slower and cheaper shipping option.
    In any case I bit the bullet and ordered as it was one of the only two remaining bottles.

    I am quite surprised they seem to be discontinuing it.

    have you tried calling guerlain counters at big boutiques, like Bergdorf Goodman in NYC? Or your local Saks/Neiman marcus.

    Look again. It's most certainly there under the Men's Fragrance section.

    When you go to the Guerlain men's fragrance home page, it's clearly listed, but when you click on any of the links to Mouchoir de Monsieur specifically to get more info, it says "the requested page no longer exists."
    https://www.guerlain.com/us/en-us/fr...ens-fragrances

    Poor site maintenance or something else?

    It used to be fairly cheap and plentiful on Ebay and other online retailers. Now it...isn't.

    I hope this isn't true, but signs are concerning.

    The mobile site works fine, and it also seems like Guerlain is taking this up to niche because MSRP is $150USD. This might explain why discounter listings and discounts overall are drying up. Also, it's like Chanel PM EdT and not carried by Guerlain boutiques or counters outside France, but unlike Chanel, mom and pop places can order it

    Ask for Guerlain perfumes. They have it.

    I have a backup bottle bought some years back.

    Guerlain more and more seems to be pulling their fragrances into a boutique exclusive. Iris Ganache which many are trying to get well only released twice a year and only certain boutiques.

    Still on the French site, and no talk on French forums of discontinuation (they would be up in arms).

    This sounds more like a US distribution issue.

    I've noticed this a bit more as of late. Guerlain, Chanel, Dior. Do you know why this might be happening?

    Yes, I was able through a private Facebook UK Perfume group to get a decant. Now I have an official sample from when it was more widely available from some years back. To me the smell the same. The latest one a member of the group had a friend in Paris go to the boutique to buy as problems shipping the 500mls Bee Bottles through Guerlain. So it was the friend who shipped it to the UK. They decant into the Bee Bottles in the boutique it seems.
