The trend of bringing back to market perfumes that are discontinued yet enduringly beloved in response to popular demand is being confirmed with the return of Crème Bouquet by Stila.
The beauty brand unknowingly created a cult favorite when it launched the fragrance meant to be "versatile", "pretty" and "feminine" in 2002 together with Jade Blossom. The latter is still available as a Hair Refresher. Crème Bouquet was discontinued ca. 2008...
There were so many complaints about the disappearance that it seems that Stila decided it was worthwhile to overcome the sourcing issue they had confessed having.
Followers of the scent rave about its perfect balance of vanilla and floral notes and its light, feminine character which make people notice what perfume they are wearing.
"The lovely Crème Bouquet fragrance is warm and sweet, with a delicate blend of vanilla, pink lilac, and lily of the valley. Each glass bottle is decorated with hand-pressed, dried flowers that represent the floral elements inside. You're guaranteed to come out smelling sweet."
A 50 ml of Eau de Parfum is priced at $40. A 11ml rollerball is priced at $16. The latter is only available online at stilacosmetics.com
"For only $36 (a $56 VALUE), you get BOTH the Creme Bouquet 50ml bottle and the Creme Bouquet roller ball (11ml)."
