Vanilla, The New Cocaine
As there has been an ongoing excessive Vanilla shortage since 2014, the prices of a special Vanilla extract I'm using in Stardust and Narcissus Orientalis (and also in many other fragrances, but in lower amounts) has gone up from 5 € to 80 € per gram.
Which means that this extract is more expensive than Cocaine and almost thrice as expensive as gold.
This is an increase over 1500%, in words: FIFTEEN THOUSAND PER CENT!!!
And even at that price, there is no more stock available.
As the prices skyrocketed within the last four years, I lowered my own margin instead of raising the prices. But this isn't possible anymore as the dimensions have gone surreal.
I managed to weave in another very pricey, but still available Vanilla extract into some of my other perfumes, but with Stardust and Narcissus Orientalis, there is no way of substituting this special extract without changing the scent too much.
So there is no way out of finally raising the prices and sending out a warning that the remaining stock of a few bottles is VERY limited and will soon be gone and discontinued until a miracle happens. Sorry Folks!
