I’ve been wearing Vivienne Westwood’s Boudoir since it launched. It’s now been discontinued sadsadsad

Buy up a few bottles as back up. Go on Fragrantica and find similar perfumes to try. Ask the perfumistas for advice/dupes.

Oh no! Thanks for the warning. I'm still devastated that Tom Ford Sahara Noir had gone!

There is a company called Eden that does vegan versions of famous perfumes (not just copies hmm)
Anyway, some are really good copies, others less so but they are about £14 a bottle.
I happen to have a vegan Sahara noir... like it for it’s oudiness but recognise it lacks some depth so probably not a perfect copy.
They are however great for ‘everyday’ perfume.
No idea if they do boudoir though...

Dupes for Boudoir and Sahara Noir from the ever so brilliant Perfume Parlour! I've had a few of their TF ones and they're usually spot on.

I can’t find any genuine boudoir to stockpile anywhere sad

Have you been in to ask at a counter? Years ago I loved a Lancôme one that was discontinued and while I was in the airport I said to one of the ladies at the counter that it had been my favourite (it had been discontinued for months at this point) and she opened up her wee cupboard and had a few bottles stashed in there that she let me buy!

Greenglassteacup Tue 14-May-19 19:39:19

I’ve been everywhere sad

Oh no! I love Boudoir. Gutted 😔

Greenglassteacup Tue 14-May-19 19:53:03

It’s all I wear, I’ve tried other perfumes over the years but nothing beats it.

Oh no, Greenglass, it's a gorgeous perfume, I love it too. My brother in law sells perfume, want me to ask him if he can get any for you?

LeopardPrintKnickers Tue 14-May-19 20:01:16

Good news @Greenglassteacup, he CAN get it. I'm just waiting to find out the price, but he's asked how many bottles you want...?

Greenglassteacup Tue 14-May-19 20:02:38

I’ve just ordered some from ‘beauty base’. Looks genuine. Will see when it arrives and if it’s the real boudoir I’ll order a few more

He and his dad go into big company head offices, like Next and Santander. It's all above board, I promise! I buy all of mine from him, except for Chanel as he can't get it via the wholesaler. Glad you found some - let m know if you want me to find out the price for the future.

Thanks leopard

WHAT???????? This is my favourite ever perfume. I'm now going to read the replies and hope there's good news 🤞

RuggyPeg Wed 15-May-19 06:59:14

Oh and perfume parlour boudoir dupe is shit. Most of theirs are fab but sods law, boudoir is shit ☹️

Greenglassteacup Wed 15-May-19 15:16:06

I don’t want any mock boudoir, I want the real deal. Why on earth have they discontinued this?

has YSL Baby Doll been discontinued. I haven't seen it for years.

kaldefotter Wed 15-May-19 15:21:56

Is this it?

Magenta82 Wed 15-May-19 15:49:56

I am yet to find a replacement for Agent Provocateur's Maitresse (the gold one) it was discontinued years ago and although it is still available on ebay the bottles I have bout in the last few years have smelt like they went off.
It was the only one I wore for ages and it felt like part of me, I really miss it!

Greenglassteacup Wed 15-May-19 16:29:46

Yes kaldefooter that’s Boudoir but seller has appalling feedback and I wouldn’t buy from them. I’ve ordered some from beauty base.
