    Wink I finally found Gucci Rush for Men

    After months of searching the internet, tonight I've placed an order from discountperfumes4u.com. A classy name if there ever was one! If Rush is still in production then why is it so impossible to find? I hope I still like it after all these years! Can you imagine if I don't? Swap List BIG TIME.

    Really? I found is super easy back in April (on Amazon.com) when I bought some as a gift for my boss (he only wears Gucci...).

    Tom Ford got it right, in my opinion, with Rush for Men. I think it stands toe-to-toe with Passage d'Enfer by L'Artisan Parfumeur (I sniffed them side-by-side one time) and I love the Macintosh inspired plastic bottle too.

    Wow, I never realized it, but you're right about the Mac design connection.

    Rush is definitely in my top 5, at least with regard to wearable scents. It's not a complex fragrance by any means, but it puts me in a relaxed state - I feel like I'm walking through a cedar forest on a clear morning...

    Thanks Ruggles for the heads up on who was still selling. Had been searching a long time. Had been on the fence about this one and when I decided to make a purchase it was no where to be found.
    As for longevity on me I used two sprays and could detect it, very lightly of course, almost 24 hours later.
    I think I like the softness of this one more than the added spicyness of Visit which I bought in place of Rush last year.

    So, Ruggles, how are you liking the Rush?

    Or has this been pushed to the back of your wardrobe by the Montales?

    Just be careful with that bottle. Mine's a piece of crap. Over time, the glue that holds the metal panels on goes bad and the panels fall off. I even got some rust (RUST!) on my bottle around the nozzle.

    Yepp the panels have fallen of mine as well...
    The fragrance however is brilliant. One of those that I know always will work whatever mood
    Im in. Subtle cedar, clean musk and incense, no nuclear sillage but very good staying power. Depressing its discontinued...

    The Rush never happened. Discountperfumes4u.com never had it in stock, yet they took my paypal money and then danced around for 2 weeks before returning it. I had to open up a dispute with paypal in order to get my refund. I called their customer care number and the woman who answered said, "who are you looking for?" she then told me to call back tomorrow. Be warned!

    Yeah - the price threw me. The $24 is about 1/2 of what everybody else has it for (Amazon, etc..)...more like 'No Rush', not 'Rush'.

    LOVE the topnotes (which usually get all the hate). The drydown is mediocre on me though. It turns sour and plain.

    Agree. The top notes are just as good, if not better, than Passage D'Enfer by L'Artisan.

    Haha Mike, I didn't mean to quote you. My post had nothing to do with yours. But I'm glad you agree with me

    That's odd because I got mine. Took a couple days longer than I expected but my tracking info said redirected. When I opened the shipping box the bottle was wrapped in celophane along with the sleeve its sold in. Couple pumps and the bottle sprayed a fine mist of fragrance. I have been wearing the past few days and it smells as I remember. Never ordered from them but thought it would be ok because a fellow basenoter had success. Not sure if I would take that chance now. I ran into a problems with Windaz, so heads up there. They charged my credit card then gave me the run around for a month on shipping. I had to contact the credit card company and have them reimburse me.

    D'Enfer smells like spillt milk with black pepper. Rush smells of incense, wood and charisma! Oh yeah, picked up a 100ml at Marshalls for $20 about a year ago. Should've bought the other one they had. That and Zino remain my best purchases there.

    I also had the "sour" drydown, but only on the btls I bought from a discounter overseas. The original bottle I picked up at a local dept. store never deteriorated in the same way, and was quite pleasant all the way through.

    I'd be a bit concerned about getting "fresh" stuff at this point, unless it is simply a matter of current production / distribution in countries outside of the U.S. But....I had to throw 2-3 btls away because of the sourness / acrid finish described above.

    stumbled across a 1.7oz bottle of Rush on perfumebay.com. $60.00

    I've never had an oz of trouble with pefumebay after at least 50 or more transactions.

    I got some for my boss on Amazon.com and it was even cheaper (I think $45) and didn't fall apart and didn't smell sour.

    Is Rush hard to find because the bottle is so convulted, that it may be difficult to produce it in quantity? Or is it because it was a commercial bomb?

    I don't know - good question, though.

    I'm thinking the latter...Gucci got much more success with Envy. And Rush for Women.
