• Davidoff, Zino, Relax and Good Life all discontinued.

    Apart from Cool Water, Davidoff have discontinued all of their men's fragrance launched before 2003's Echo. As well as the aforementioned Cool Water and Echo, still in production are the Silver Shadow, Adventure and Hot Water fragrances.

    Davidoff (1984), Zino (1986), Relax (1990) and Good Life (1998) are no longer in production. Some fragrance aficionado's consider these to be some of the finest fragrances in the Davidoff stable.

    The original Davidoff fragrance was launched under license by Lancaster in 1984. Lancaster was acquired by Germany's Benckiser Group in 1990, and merged in with the newly acquired Coty (from Pfizer) in 1992. Today Coty is considered the world's largest fragrance company and creates fragrances for brands such as Davidoff, Calvin Klein, Jovan Jennifer Lopez and Marc Jacobs.

      What a nightmare to hear that Zino is discontinued! This is sad. Time to stock up.

      Relax was one of my absolute favourites when I was a teenager. Perhaps a hunt on eBay is in order...

      Hearing that a favorite fragrance is discontinued (Zino) makes me feel a little strange--like hearing about the passing of a favorite celebrity.

      Fortunately, Zino is everywhere in my city. Those mall discounters and plenty of e-tailers have tons of the stuff. Time to stock up. Thank you for this information.

      Too bad! Davidoff, Zino, Relax, and Good Life are all great scents which I have enjoyed for many years. Why do companies do this?

      Oh noes!
      And just as my love affair with Zino was blossoming.
      Oh well, fore-warned is fore-armed. Better buy a bottle.

      I can not believe that Zino was discontinued! The fragrance name after the founder of the company!!!

      Zino is not a scent for the masses just for the connoisseur the opposite of the Cool Water consumer!

      Good, none of these are fantastic. I doubt anybody will miss them. They're not modern enough.

      This is really unfortunate. I really like Zino ....arrrrgghh ! This upsets me very much, actually.

      I will have to get a backup of Zino. I really hope Davidoff's fragrances all fail miserably from now on....

      Thank you for the sad news.

      I could not agree more of the shame to have discontinued those legendary fragrances including Johnny Depp's favourites, Zino ☻


      Thank god Cool Water was not on the list. At least, there is a sense of enjoyment there.

      Another classic bites the dust. Zino was the jewel in Davidoff's crown.

      Thank you for the notice. I placed my order for a bottle of Zino upon reading it. It is a very fine fragrance and now I will have some for a long time.

      I adore Zino, heard many great opinions on Relax. I have a 75 ml bottle of Zino and will use it rarely and only on spec occasions...mayhaps I even stock it up for one bottle more, just in case.

      1) Because it can take a long while for stocks to run out.
      2) Because I haven't quite got round to changing that yet
