A few weeks ago while I was in the middle of one of my trips and waiting at the airport for ages, I did what almost seems compulsory while at the airport, visit the unnecessary but incredibly tempting duty free stores.
My house is filled with scented candles and my bathroom shelves with perfumes, I have an obsession for scents. I used to buy a lot of different perfumes back in the day, but as I get older, I find myself narrowing it down to 2 maybe 3 scents tops. One of them is Burberry The Beat which is one of my absolute favorites and right by its side, L’IMPERATRICE by D&G. I guess you could say those are my signature scents.
My D&G perfume was running low and I was trying to get myself a new bottle, that was until the lady at the store told me that the perfume I was looking for had been discontinued. I went into a very mild and tiny panic attack, realizing that my favorite perfume and what I’ve been using for ages was no longer available and I would never be able to buy it again. I decided to track it down on every single perfume store I would cross paths with and most importantly, find out if this was the truth, if they were actually discontinuing my scent.
I’ve asked around on Twitter and Facebook, some say yes, some say no. I went to about 10 different perfume stores and I could only find it in one of them, so I immediately bought a 100ml bottle and even considered getting an extra one just in case -still considering it-.
The thing is, I still don’t know if the rumors are true. Is D&G seriously discontinuing L’IMPERATRICE? Do I really have to go stock up so that I can at least smell like this for few more years to come?
Does anybody know?
