Drakkar noir... yyyyuck
Thread: It deserves to dissapear!
We usually talk about frags that should be brought back to production and of times of yore being better than nowadays or about new reformulations gone awry, but what frag(s) would you say deserves discontinuation?
i'll start with one: (IMHO)
Dior's Higher Energy (sorry fans, that is, if there are some...)
what do you propose deserves the trash can/dustbin?
The original Aramis needs to be taken into a field and shot in the face.
I agree with Jesse on this one. It has served it's purpose and has been around since the sixties.
Founder- Cosa Nosetra
I'd normally nominate Nu, which remains the single worst fragrance I have ever smelled. But it looks like Yves Saint Laurent is on the fast track to discontinuing this one for me...
I love the Drakkar, my compliment king, it is not popular here, So I dont smell it everywhere like the people in the USA do, but I find it wonderful the top notes are not very nice but the drydown is light lavender with moss and light leather, I love it.Originally Posted by anthony

Colours by Alexander Julian...bleurgh
Boss In Motion... And all its clones..
In fact, Hugo Boss should disappear from the fragrance industry altogether.

Current faves: CdG White, Amouage Dia, Millesime Imperial, Miller Harris Terre de Bois
I dont think any deserve to be discontinued really, we all have different tastes as this forum shows!
However i do feel if you are caught wearing Joop in public, you should be arrested and forced to attened an anti social behaviour rehab course in a maximum security institution.
coor blimey mary poppins, is that Aqua Motu or the penguins?
In my opinion EVERY perfume that refuses to do its job should disappear. Ofcourse we all have our own liking for a particular way the perfume smells but if that fragrance disappears from you in no time its a total waste of our money.
From my collection i would say the following shud be buried:
Acqua di Gio
Essenza di Zegna
and the list will continue coz i am an impulsive buyer..........

I never knew perfume had a JOB. It's not the scents job to wear you and make you look good. It's your job to carry the scent.Originally Posted by gupts
i wonder wut did u interpret when i said a perfume had a job...well i wud clarify it for you now..A perfumes job is give out fragrance....and a perfume that has good longevity is doing a good job....i wonder wut wud one carry if there isnt anything to carry ( i mean no fragrance at all).Originally Posted by Thrax

Hey - I'm wearing it today!Originally Posted by Thrax
oh yeah defenitly NU EDP... I cannot beleive this was reccomended for men, it has a sickening floral note. I'll also add insense ultramarine and tsar, all marshalls/tj maxx fragsOriginally Posted by Serpent
Hey sometimes Marshalls/TJ Maxx have great finds!!! They're great places to find one's favorites for half the price.Originally Posted by RTbar
As for disappearing, I'll nominate all the Curve spin-offs, except for the original.
And Axe. Yes, I'm guilty of wearing it sometimes when I'm being lazy, but I wouldn't miss it.

original santal. what a mess. every other creed sits on a line from like to love but this needs a catagory of its own. help. erwin's coming.
I have a feeling the Creed fils will be too busy doing promotional photo shoots at Klosters to do much beyond rubberstamp the fragrances the uncredited, secret perfumer team will be concocting for Creed...Originally Posted by hirch_duckfinder
I guess no house is perfect - not even the mighty CreedOriginally Posted by hirch_duckfinder
I just couldn't appreciate the fragrance...it was almost sickening.Originally Posted by scentinell
I thought it was already discontinued, but if you see any send it to me I will certainly make it disappear.

Fleur de Peau by Keiko Mechieri
The most malevolent, atrocious, and debilitating to the nasal cavity creation I have ever experienced! And irony of ironies, the stuff has remarkable (re:nightmarish) longevity and sillage. I scrubbed with Dawn dish liquid nearly half a dozen times and could not remove the scent entirely. In fact, even after all that washing my wife swore she could still smell sillage wafting about. Alas, she was even more repulsed.
