About Discontinued Perfumes
When the manufacturer discontinues your signature fragrance, the world may as well end. Before crying into your perfume bottle, check eBay for both recent and vintage discontinued perfumes. Some companies discontinue a fragrance in one country but continue production in other countries worldwide. Check online to see if the line continued with another name, or if the manufacturer sold the original formula to another company. In some instances, unrelated companies remix old formulas when there is enough demand for a product. Other times, shops and sellers may have stocked up before the manufacturer pulled the fragrance. Keep in mind that older fragrances may have weakened with time, lacking some of the complexity of their original mix. Especially popular perfumes may also be harder to find and cost more when you do find it. When you find your favourite discontinued perfume, buy as much as you can and never let it go. After all, you do not know when you might come across it again.
