Where To Buy Charlotte Russe Refuge Perfume


Apparently there are alot of other people who are wondering what happened to the Charlotte Russe Refuge perfume.

What makes me think that? Remember that post I did a few months ago about how disappointed I was that they were discontinuing that fragrance?

Well, I can't tell you how much traffic I get from that one, single post. It's craziness.

I have good news for those of you who are sad that Charlotte Russe stopped producing Refuge! Someone mentioned it to me in the comments all those months ago, and I recently got it confirmed when I made a shopping trip to a Charlotte Russe store recently.

They did not stop producing Refuge. They just re-branded it.

Now it's simply Charlotte Russe perfume. They just dropped the "Refuge" part - it's the same exact fragrance. Notice the oh-so-subtle difference in the bottle.

I know because I sprayed some on while I was in the store. It's the same perfume.

Now why do they put us through all that torture of thinking it's disappearing forever when it's not? I have no answer for that question.

But to answer the original question, you can buy Charlotte Russe Refuge at the Charlotte Russe store, right at the counter where it always was before. It's just called Charlotte Russe *period* now.

I'm afraid you Charlotte Russe Refuge Nights fans may be out of luck though. I have no idea about that one.

Wow. That must be a really popular scent. Maybe I'll have to give it a whiff and see if I like it.

If anyone out there is looking for a new fragrance, my hubby got me "Halle" by Halle Berry last Valentine's Day. It's a sweeter scent, and it's heavenly. I'm not normally into the celebrity perfumes, but this one is just beautiful!

I think that Charlotte Russe perfume is a rip off. It was rebranded so that they could add more water to it and less scent. When I used Refuge, I could easily smell the perfume from the first squirt. With this new brand, now it takes several squirts just to notice the fragrance. They are definitely making us stretch our dollars.

Ok, so this time I think it is really discontinued. I can't find it in any CR store or even online. Help! Does anyone else know for sure?

this too was my all time favorite perfume. everytime i wore it, at least one person would comment on how good i smelled and asked what i was wearing...sad to say but i ran out last month, went to go buy another bottle, to find out that they discontinued it all together. i am thinking that charlotte russe is going out of business as well. stores are empty! i just wish that they would have "sold" the scent to another company...i am so sad!

Yep. I've been wearing Refuge since 03 and been in love with it ever since, bought 2 at a time, bought it for girlfriends, tried the "Nights" (I wasn't impressed, still have a full bottle, I think it smells like baby powder) and have tried the "new" Charlotte Russe scent. Its really not the same. I still have a bit of Refuge left, and I did a sniff test. LOL. They are NOT the same scent. Close, but not the same. They didn't just change the name on the bottle as Charlotte Russe wants us to believe. I've looked all over; Ebay, Amazon, the find, overstock. I added Charlotte Russe to my facebook page, only so I can harp them about this. All I can say is if enough people do that, maybe they will bring the original Refuge back, if you're as upset as I am about this (I don't care if it seems silly!!!) then its worth a shot! Good luck ladies!

I love refuge! I am very very sad that it has been discontinued. I also use to get comments all the time on the scent. People would ask where they could get it. Really wish they would of sold the scent to someone else. I will miss it! :( Nothing will come close to replacing Charlotte Russe Refuge Perfume. I dont like the Nights perfume either.

I'm soooo very sad!! I love love LOVE that scent!! They definitly need to bring the original refuge perfume back!!! I don't usually wear perfume, but Refuge was light and fruity so it was very easy to wear. And for a good price! If anyone finds any scent similar to this one please share!!

I posted on your other post and alls I know is that I started wearing the Charlotte Russe NOT the one that says Refuge...just plain clear bottle with Charlotte Russe on it (exactly the one of the 2nd pic u posted) and I went yday and they ONLY had the 2 Refuge kinds and said it must been discontinued BC she called 4 different stores! The Refuge is DEF NOT the same as the Charlotte Russe bc I sprayed the Refuge and the night one and to me they are not even close!! I'm sad I love just the plain Charlotte Russe and my fiance loves it too and I've been wearing it for 3 yrs ! I even bought a bottle at that very same store I was at yday just 2 months ago. I just hope and pray they bring it back!

I fell in love with this perfume in the summer of 2006. I wore it in Hawaii when I was studying there. When my house burned down in Dec. 2012, I was sad when I couldn't find it in the rubble. All my other perfumes where fine. I kept it for over 6 years, because I was afraid it would be discontinued. I hope I find it.
