Good News: Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Is Back

Here's the scoop right from Giuseppe at Henri Bendel: Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier have a new American distributor and the line is back on the shelves. He expects to have the full range of fragrances within a couple of weeks. So we can stop stocking up on Route de Vetiver and Or des Indes. I was surprised to know that Annick Goutal was close to facing a very similar issue- their USA availability was jeopardized by the distributor going bankrupt. This might be the reason we've seen huge stocks of Goutal perfumes at cutthroat prices online. In any case, danger averted.

More on the Henri Bendel front: I sniffed the new house scents and they're not half bad. Incense & Musk is a lighter, fluffier cousin of Donna Karan's Black Cashmere. I also enjoyed Persian Lime & Pepper (just how it sounds) and Grapefruit & Vetiver (ditto). All come in an EDP concentration for $65. Not a breakthrough in perfumery by any mean, but cute and wearable.

Some interesting makeup news to follow...


  1. Hooray! :) Glad to hear they are not only still operating, but will have a US outlet.

  2. Good news! I love MPG! I treasure my bottle of Eau des Iles and I want more of them, once I can afford it. I was afraid that they would start going for MORE than list price if they were discontinued.
