Yesterday morning, I went to Penhaligon's store in Paris and the fine Englishman working there confirmed the following:
– LP9 will be discontinued. It was initially a temporary Valentine's day perfume, hence the trite name and the black bottle. It does not reflect Penhaligon's image; they are now selling their remaining stock and by January 2007, LP9 will be very hard to find.
– Douro, formerly known as Lords, will be renamed… Lords.
– A new eau de parfum for women available in a fortnight.
