    Barishnakov pour homme

    Not sure about the spelling. I had a bottle of the signature fragrance of the ballet star years ago and it was wonderful. Would love to have it again.

    I definitely second Calvin for Men!

    No one thus far, though, has mentioned Dior's classic Jules (which may or may not be truly discontinued), nor Balmain's exquisite Ébène, nor my beloved Léonard pour Homme.

    B*Men by Thierry Mugler is another good bet... although it's only now in the process of being discontinued, you can still find it very easily (at reasonable prices, too). It's sorta like Angel Men/A*Men, but fresher and not as potent.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    I live in Memphis, TN and there is a fragrance store here that has one 2 oz. of Jean Patou Pour Homme (splash not spray) for 33$!! They had two, but I bought one last week. They also have Leonard Pour Homme.


    I had posted the number of the store earlier but have found out from another user that they don't take credit card orders over the phone or ship. Sorry for any confusion.

    I don't know if the formulation's changed but Jules is still widely available in Paris.

    A cheaper alternative for this one might be 12 by Jean Couturier. They seem to have a similar vibe to me.

    Sorry, TVLB, Jules had been mentioned several times already, as has Léonard pour Homme. (I must say I'm a real convert to the latter.)

    But let me add one that is really obscure to this list: Herb Alpert's Listen. A surprisingly nice, wearable scent that reminds me a little of AD Plus by Alain Delon and also Romeo Gigli's Sud Est..

    cheers

    Homme de Grès by Grès saw this while lookin round for stuff and took a stab at it blindly...and since then it has become a dear favorite...i dont really relate to the reviews in the directory...i suppose it has some lemon to it...but overall its more of a "green" feel to me...great on longevity for me and a regular "office" frag also.. upon which i have received many compliments...i believe discontinued but still to be found......not at all dated to me but has a contemporary refined nature to it

    Cool Re: Discontinued Frags worth hunting down

    Dear Santa:

    For Christmas I would really like

    1. Hombre de Flores Polianthes Tuberosa by Fresh

    2. Jaguar (original)

    And, of course

    Versailles pour Homme by Jean Desprez and Jean Patou PH by J.P.

    I know I haven't been a particularly good boy, but keep in mind that Luca Turin highly recommended A*men and Tommy Girl, whereas my only sins were to give a good review to Prada Homme and a neutral to Creed's OV, so please grade me on a curve, and come through , OK?

    Thank you for

    Patou PH Prive, no great shakes, but interesting.

    And a big thanks for

    1. Nicole Miller for Men --May I never run out of this bittersweet love potion!


    2, Havana--(Which I'm wearing it today, in commemoration of escaping Cuba on 12/21/59. Nice not to have to worry anymore about doing 20 years of hard labor for speaking out against the regime) Great Bay Rum/ Tobacco Combo.

    Hope you're having a good Winter's Solstice. Best to Mrs Santa and Rudolph,

    Cheers,


    Mario.

    Nattygold hit my favorite discontinued, V.O. by Jean Marc Sinan, but the Iquitos by Alain Delon I'm wearing today is pretty wonderful.

    Patou pour Homme is worth hunting down. It's incredibly rich and complex unlike the plain, simplistic and boring frags we get nowadays..

    There's a bottle of V.O. here at Dulles Town Center. He won't let me try it on. It says Eau de Parfum on the bottle but it's in the men's section. All the ones I see online are EdT. Not sure if I should buy it blind.

    I tried Furyo recently and it starts off much like Kouros but dries down differently. I prefer Kouros and it is cheaper too.

    The Crown Perfumery range. My least favourite is Town & Country (too much sage/lavender). Eau de Quinine and Crown Imperial are hugely impressive - rich, sophisticated, and complex. They are old-fashioned in the best sense - there is a feeling of restrained power with them.

    Bottles pop up on ebay UK and I recently bought a huge stash of sample vials for pennies.

    There are too many to count, and there have been good observations here...

    was Ô Pour Homme by Lancôme mentioned?

    It's got to be one of my favorite scents of all time... at least to my nose, everything was fresh, jovial and made me very happy. (smells nothing like the original Ô for women).

    Az, we should get a coffee sometime, and I'll bring my bottle of V.O. for you to test. Mine is the edt, and I'm glad you've seen it online. It may as well be edp strength, as it has almost Joop! Homme tenacity. Not a sweet scent at all, but an oakmoss-ash-leather-dirt-woods-whatsit smell though.

    Never heard about any edp in it, and it makes me wonder if the edp is the women's companion to it. Heck, I don't know anything but that I have the edt and that's the one I'm thinking of for this thread.

    Word of caution on it though: the scent isn't going to knock you out. It isn't a Patou or Desprez or a lost 100-year-old thing made for a relative of a Czar. It's a normal, stinky, dry sort of yuk scent. It isn't Ebène or long lost 1960s Lanvin Vetyver (hey, add that one to this thread) but it is a different beast of treesap. It won't rock your world or make a collection magnificent.

    Add Lanvin's 1960s era Vetyver to this thread as a discontinued scent worth finding. Never smelled it myself, but vetivers are my drug.

    I am still looking for 40 Love for Men by Jean Desprez. It is as unique as Versailles and yet nothing at all like it. Somebody, anybody, help me find it, please.
