Edp is the most common formulation in some parts of Europe, so it's def. not discontinued. How companies decide where to sell/promote what is a mystery to me...
I know this is an old thread, but I'm really enjoying what a lot of you have said here. I agree that confidence is the key to getting away with anything, and I mean anything - fragrance, clothes, shoes ... murder xD haha. If you don't feel great wearing something, you will NEVER look/smell great in it.
As for Chanel No.19, I have only tested the current EdP, and I think it's absolutely fantastic. I have yet to test it on my skin, but on paper, the Iris really stands out. It's not a sweet, feminine Iris though, it's more like a leathery, mossy Iris. To me, it smells like a mature version of Dior Homme. I'll test this on my skin over the weekend, and if I like it, I will DEFINITELY buy it.
Interesting how what was all rage about wearing women's scents five years ago, has pretty much petered out.
I often wonder if it was because of poor results, or because perhaps some finally figured out how to tell the difference between men's and women's scents.
