Yep, that's how I came to Basenotes too. Looking to find a scent to rebound with. Found plenty!
I came to basenotes purely for more 'educated' recommendations regarding fragrance. And I absolutely appreciate the input from the people who spend and collect far more than myself.
It's a learning and discovery process in which one would only get a rounded picture with recommendations from across the budgetary scale; it allows me to build a bigger picture, make comparisons and perhaps seek the more lesser known or cheaper alternatives.
There has to be people who monitor/have high standards with fragrances to create an equilibrium across the various threads that make basenotes such a good place for the knowledge.
Unfortunately, you are correct in being realistic. There are many discontinued fragrances that will only be a lasting memory. But the good news is that some of your favorites might still be around especially if they are imported from Europe. I know for a fact that the warehouse has a place for hard to find fragrances and discontinued as well. I look forward to reviewing you list to see if I can be of any assistance. Take care.

My website although I don't have all of the fragrances there is http://profsanchezholistichealing.com
I am thrilled at the idea that I could find some things this way, but I'm also realistic that some of these will be lost to time since they were discontinued in the early 1980s. I plan on making a list and sending it to you at some point in the near future. Thank you.
