    I just picked up a new bottle of the Dunhill a few months ago. Are we sure
    it is discontinued? A fine EdC, although not long lasting.

    Many producers re-use a discontinued name for a new offering. Dunhill has a "New" Dunhill for men, but it is not the original "Dunhill for men". If your bottle is square, it is new. If your bottle is cylindrical, it is the original.

    It's quite ironic to see this thread...I logged on to post a new thread "what direction would you like to see the industry go?" Many of my favorite colognes have been discontinued and I really have a hard time embracing the "fresh", "black", "sport", "blue", "aqua", blah, blah, blah frags.

    Cool Re: Your top 5 Discontinued fragrances

    I'm afraid so. Look up:
    http://community.basenotes.net/showt...&highlight=RIP

    Though the review section still lists it as 'In Production'

    Other honorable mentions:

    Patou PH (which I've also never smelled)
    Versailles PH (ditto)

    And might as well list:

    The gunpowder in HK P7M8's 9mm pistol (discontinued 2005. Progressing in value each day, will soon be worth a small fortune )
    The leather interior of my '73 Jaguar ( A mechanical nightmare, which fell apart-- but it was so pretty)

    The only two and a half are already mentioned.
    Dunhill (1934), and Patou PH. I got a decant on the latter here,
    and I really love it, although my wife is meh on it. I just don't
    get why it is not made any more.

    The "half" is the aforementioned Guerlain Vetiver. I have scored
    a fair bit of it though, so I will not be missing it for a while.

    All 3 though are used very sparingly, and with respect.

    Oo, oo...great idea for a thread! I just love the hunt for and experiencing of discontinued scents. My top-5 in no particular order

    Nicole Miller for Men
    Spazio Krizia Uomo
    Patou Pour Homme/Prive
    Tuscany per Uomo Forte
    Signoricci 1/2

    p.s. Ok, so there's technically seven...shoot me!

    1 - Ecusson by Jean D'Albret: the original , it's now made under license in the US but I have not tried to order it yet,
    I am somewhat scared. Bandit is also now produced in the US, but being rebuilt a bit too cheaply.

    2 to 4 - Three Lanvins from the creative start of masculine cologne production in the sixties and through the seventies:
    Lanvin Vetyver (64/5 stars), Monsieur Lanvin (64/4 stars) , Lanvin for Men (79/5 stars).

    5 - I didn't offer enough for an authentic green bottle (including box, metal shield and chain) recently,
    but of course I miss the genuine Brut too! This and Old Spice were the best Ambassadors the US ever sent to Europe.

    (Isn't Signoricci 2, the citrussy one still being produced under the name of the (discontinued) Signoricci ?
    I know there have been continuous confusions, and an error in the directory may not have helped.
    I certainly want the old S2 replaced, but I have never missed the original S.)

    For me it is particularly sad that some recent frags get discontinued because they did not instantly sell well. In addition to wonderful older scents that has been mentioned I would like to mention

    B*Men
    Yohji
    Coriolan
    Nemo
    Cuiron
    Helmut Lang Edc
    Gucci Rush
    Minotaure (though I'm not sure it's discontinued)
    Ungaro 1, 2, 3 (at least original version of 3)

    Wierd to know that soon they will be hard to find.

    Mine is the cylindrical bottle, just like what is shown in the Basenotes
