Only the Best are Discontinued!
Time and time again it seems that the best and most unusual perfumes are discontinued. Birmane is a case in point. I do agree with a lot of what Scentimental said in his review, but cannot see Birmane as "bland".

Upon first application Birmane is a fruity/herbal mixture. I know that herbs aren't listed per se, but there is a very medicinal quality along with the pineapple and bergamot which are obvious initially. Quite quickly this medicinal note smooths into the most wonderful rosewood that I have ever come across in a perfume. Birmane manages to be both sweet and dry. The rosewood smells just like those beautifully carved wooden Indian boxes that abound in exotic shops. The initial fruitiness is replaced with a smooth cocoon-like embrace of heliotrope, musk and tonka bean. The beauty of Birmane is more apparent in the colder months. Wear it with a cashmere sweater and snuggle into its downy softness. Birmane is comfort food for the olfactory senses. It is complex, cozy and smooth.

Reclining upon a pile of luxurious cushions is a beautiful and voluptuous matriarch. Allow her to take you into her embrace and sooth away the creases on your brow as she holds you against her ample bosom.

EDIT: I note that here it says that Birmane is still in production. I am under the impression that it has been discontinued as it is impossible to purchase. But perhaps I am mistaken. I hope I am!
