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 Angel 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 £100 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?
