    Default ORIGINAL Marlou 50ml d'ambiguite : You know that I'm weak for you (weak for you) I can't help myself

    (I can't help myself/Sugarpie Honeybunch) : "You know that I'm weak for you (weak for you) I can't help myself, I love you and nobody else"......


    Hi all,

    Many here at BN know of my LOVE of Marlou 50ml d'ambiguite. Just a short while ago, I was in a panic as an Internet "snafu" proclaimed that Marlou had permanently closed. I was like "Noooooo!" Fired on by emotion, I quickly found an online Fragrance site selling Marlou and I planned to immediately purchased a "back up" bottle of "d'ambiguite" (one of my TOP FIVE) Fragrances.

    But wait! What's this ? Much to my surprise, "d'ambiguite" had since been reformulated and RE-named! Ooh no (thinks I). The new reformulated Fragrance is now called "Ambilux Eau de Parfum". The Fragrance site/seller had a brief explanation/description about the new "Ambilux" and it's "reformulation". Well, since this explanation seemed copacetic, I went ahead and purchased a new bottle of "Ambilux".

    I recently tried "Ambilux" and it is indeed a lovely Fragrance however, when compared to my "original" bottle of d'ambiguite, new "Ambilux" is a bit on the "tame" side. I suspect for "the average" person (who somewhat enjoys "Animalic" notes) that new "Ambilux" will be most satisfactory. However, however, when it comes to (yours truly) SixCats! I MUST have that "Full Frontal Assault/take no Prisoners" experience of (original) "d'ambiguite". I only have 3/4's of my original bottle of "d'ambiguite" remaining.

    Well, I decided to contacted Mr. Marlou himself (Briac) in France and I confessed to Briac that, while I very much like the new "Ambilux" (which I had purchased State side) that I am just too damn "HARD CORE" of an Animalic Fragrance Head and (original) "d'ambiguite" is my "Kryptonite". The "up shot" ? What luck! Briac informed me that there was some remaining stock of "original d'ambiguite" available! Suffice to say, I now have an original bottle of my beloved "d'ambiguite" on it's way to me from France!
    I am one happy Cat!

    Thanks for sharing the story SixCats! What a great outcome. Glad you've been able to secure a bottle of your favourite fragrance and now you can spray with wild abandon...! Let us know when it arrives.

    Yup you just have to order it from him in France which is a little more expensive than LuckyScent. By the way when is his new perfume supposed to come out?

    Thank you Derbyman. I was so very happy to secure a "back up" bottle of this most excellent (special) favorite Fragrance for my collection. I hope to make my bottles last a looong time. I hope Marlou reconsiders keeping "original" d'ambiguite in production. To the best of my knowledge, it is now only available from France.

    Hi GWM,

    All things considered (price wise and including shipping from France) the cost wasn't too bad at all. Ooh, good question GWM regarding Marlou new Fragrance. Briac did mention to me (a Month or two ago) that a new Marlou Fragrance was soon to be released. I suppose I could ask Briac, however, I should just hang tight as the Mrs. will KILL me if I make another expensive Perfume purchase (or purchase anything else for that matter). Aside from Colognes, I've gone a lil' bit CRAZY purchasing (one of my other Hobby) some pretty pricey Knives. Also I'm still collecting vintage Gillette Safety Razors. I now have about two hundred Safety Razors which I've collected in only two years! Yikes! In fact lol, this very day, I found (another) beautiful vintage Gillette FATBOY Safety Razor! The FATBOY is one of my favorite (adjustable) Razors.

    Hello Ima,

    Thank you for your kind comments. I admit that (especially) Marlou "d'ambiguite" is a rather acquired taste, but dear God, how I LOVE this Fragrance. Do give Marlou a try!

    Regards,

    SixCats!

    Thank you for sharing the story, very happy for you - since reuniting with an older (or for that matter, also more recent) fragrance love is always a highly rewarding and altogether simply beautiful, inspiring sensation

    Hi Ken_,

    Ooh, you are most welcome KR and thank you for your kind words. Yesterday, I wore (NEW) Marlou "Ambilux" (out and about) and it is a WONDERFUL Fragrance ! However, of the two Marlou (d'ambiguite Perfumes) the (NEWER/reformulated) "Ambliux" for sure would be the more "Socially acceptable" (read "safer bet") to wear (in Public) Fragrance. However, it's those "special" moments (when I feel like a "Testosterone" fueled Tom Cat on the prowl) I reach for "original" (take no Prisoners) Marlou 50ml d'ambiguite. Yesair!
