Bought a bottle on the spot. Much better spray action to it than what I was getting in Japan.
Chanel PM sounds like something I might like to try, but are you saying the stuff I get in Asia is going to be inferior?
Glad they're still making BdP: it hurts to have to replace what works so well.
Re: Chanel PM - I'd heard that the recent IFRA regulations regarding oakmoss, et al, were going to decimate the likes of Chanel PM and Mitsouko - forcing reformulations and synthetic substitutes - so pretty well any of the current production anywhere won't be as good as it was pre-IFRA. That said, I have roughly a liter of Chanel PM from the 80's, so I'm not concerned about getting more.
What I found in Cancun last week was a good approximation, if a bit thin and dry, but at least they still carry it: I cannot find the 'regular' Chanel PM in the US at all. If you find any in Asia, it's likely to be the green juice which is fine, but you'll no doubt find BdP to be superior. PM me if you want to try the 80's version.
