    I still have a bottle of CANVAS with just a small bit of juice left. I keep it for a reference. It was made by a shave/skincare line called California Interface. Loved this fragrance also. It is almost like a pure perfume strength-very patchouli heavy.

    Giorgio for Men (1984) by Giorgio Beverly Hills was my signature scent for many many years. It was discontinued sometime in the mid 1990s and now I wear it infrequently to extend my supply - very sad situation indeed!

    I have since discovered some other great fragrances that fall into this category, but I knew they were discontinued before purchasing them: Derby, Dunhill '34, Witness, Jules, Gucci pour Homme (1976) and Havana. I should also mention Guess Men (1991) as one that I miss.

    This stuff (Giorgio for men) is here available everywhere for peanuts! Less than 20 euros for 118 ml and it smells the same as it always did!

    This is a shop you have here in every town and sells this stuff already for years for this price.
    Also online for a little more money this is widely available here. It is for sure not discontinued or better said, it was relaunched a few years ago!

    One of my favorites that was discontinued is DK Men (aka DK Fuel). Donna Karan sold her perfume line to Estee Lauder and their first order of business was to discontinue her Men's line. Idiots!
    +1 on the Chevignon (which is also discontinued now but still available!)

    A few weeks ago I would have said Creed Royal English Leather. But, recently I have been able to acquire 2 full bottles from Neiman Marcus. Now I would have to say Creed's Royal Scottish Lavender is one I am sad to hear is no more. I just recently smelled it for the 1st time, and I really enjoyed it. Maybe I will be able to hunt down a bottle of that too... I hope. I gotta stop trying fragrances that have already been discontinued - Im just asking for frustration.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Creed - Original Cologne
    10. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men

    Giorgio Beverly Hills V.I.P. Special Reserve - the first fragrance that really made me have to buy a bottle the first time I smelled it.
    Gucci Nobile - went through a few bottles of this in the late 80s and early 90s. Saved the last bit of a 1oz bottle for very special occasions for years 'til I found a few sealed bottles on eBay a few years ago.
    Polo Crest - the only fragrance from The Polo line I ever really liked, and I liked it a lot. Still have 90% of a 2nd bottle and some small .5oz bottles. The only one of the three that I, regrettably, do not own any full back up bottles of.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    I have to say it's Macassar by Rochas. Found a bottle in 2005 at a perfumer who told me that the company was reissuing the fragrance, but I've never been able to find it since except from 2 or 3 people on eBay who want $500 a bottle. Not that addicted...

I couldn't believe how amazingly complex and beautifully green it was, and I loved how it evoked such visuals.
    Try Loewe pour Homme

    It is very similar to Trophee and I would say even better.
    Read my reviews on them.
