    Default Guerlain Habit Rouge Dress Code 2015 batch....huh?

    Looking through my wardrobe to try and decide what to keep and what to sell, I took a look at the current prices for my "first batch" 2015 first release of Habit Rouge Dress Code...it's selling for 4 times the amount I bought it for. What's the deal with that? I see it still being available in Sak's Fifth Ave. What made the first batch so special?

    I don't think there's anything special about the initial release (I have it also) I just think some vendors think it's a rarity and jack up their price. Also, perhaps elsewhere it's not that readily available.

    Available at Saks? I’m skeptical. Got a link?

    Just tried adding to cart. No go it seems. My mistake. But my original question stands, what makes the original 2015 so desirable?

    From what I could find, Guerlain just used different bottles for each year but the juice was the same throughout the whole multi year run. $825 for a first year, sealed bottle on eBay right now. Give me a break. Move that decimal point to the left one position and that's about where it should be. DC is a fine fragrance, but it's not a great fragrance.

    They were all the same juice. I've owned the 2015, 16 and 17 and didn't detect any differences. As AlphaFrank75 said, it's the bottles that change and nothing more.

    That's what I thought.

    There was a longish hiatus after the first batch, which was a limited edition - and a lot of speculation over whether it would be reintroduced for good - but I haven't read anything to suggest a reformulation.
