Discontinued Products – The Heartbreak

beauty, discontinued, fragrance

Ever found something you really love, go to repurchase it only to find it’s been discontinued?

It’s the worst. I don’t know why companies do this to us! My biggest disappointment came from Victoria’s Secret. In 2011 I went on a family holiday to Thailand. I was so excited in the airport when I found the perfect Angelย Mist from Victorias Secret. I LOVED IT! A really sweet smell that is now so nostalgic to me I feel like I’ve been transported back to Bangkok every time I spray it.

So you can imagine how devastating it was when I began to look for a new bottle of Dream Angels FOREVER. I searched the New Bond Street store. Nothing. Westfield Stratford City. Nothing. And then I googled it, only to confirm my worst fears, it was gone. As it turns out, discontinued products are a bit of an online business, people are charging OVER ยฃ100 for them!! So now I am left with a dilemma, I have a few wears to get out of it but to me, this stuff is like liquid gold and I just can’t bring myself to finish the bottle. In the words of Sinead O’Connor, Nothing Compares!

Has this ever happened to any of you? How did you handle it?

  1. ๐Ÿ˜ซ I feel your pain! I LOVE their Body Oil Spray in Appletini. I was able to purchase it twice before they decided to discontinue it. Now I only have the body oil shimmer spray and I seriously only use it on special occasions. I had made it my signature scent and then they took it away from me.
