I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately for certain perfumes I wore back in my 20s and 30s, and now I’m deeply regretting the perfume purge I did a few years back because I found out recently that several are now discontinued!
When I think about them, I can practically smell them. Is that weird?
Discontinued Scent Number 1, Laura Mercier Eau de Lune
I desperately want a bottle of Laura Mercier Eau de Lune, a beautiful light floral with plumeria, rose, violet, amber and musk notes that I wore to my office job in San Francisco for years.
It was subtle enough not to take over an elevator but was still present enough to enjoy. I wore it when El Hub and I started dating and eventually wentthrough a couple bottles.
I just always assumed it would be there for me when I wanted to wear it again, but alas, no. I tried to find it online and couldn’t track it down.
Cue the glittery tears!
Discontinued Scent Number 2, STELLA by Stella McCartney
Oh, this one was a beauty — English rose mixed with mandarin and peony with an amber base.
El Hub got me a bottle during our first Christmas together, and I wore it all the time. I should’ve kept it just so I could smell it every once in a while. It reminds me of that carefree era when it was just us.
What discontinued scents do you wish would come back?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Have a terrific Tuesday!
