    Default Is Nicole Miller for Men being brought back to the market?

    I always thought NM was discontinued and hard to find (with the exception of mini's). Recently I've seen the 2.5oz available at Beauty Encounter (formerly Perfume Bay), & Fragrancenet. I grabbed a bottle off BE, but I'm curious if it's being brought back... Neither site is charging outrageous prices either. Probably what it would have cost if it were still in production. I remember a basenoter listing all the 2008 releases a few months back, and I saw that Nicole Miller had a fragrance lined up. Could it be that NM is being brought back from the dead??

    I enjoyed a bottle of this back in the day. At the time, I thought it was unique and nothing like it. Without knowing for sure, I don't think it is being brought back. My guess of course.

    Scentedmonkey has it as well... Looks like we have another Montana Parfum D'Homme style resurrection on our hands!

    All I know is that the shop I go to (The one that had D&G the One) over 3 weeks ago....they said to me....
    "Have you ever heard of Nicole Miller for men?" I said yeah, its been discontinued for quite some time now....
    They said..."We're getting a new shipment in next WED."
    So, I'll check it out to see if its just like the old one or a new scent alltogether...

    That is the million dollar question...

    Even when it was discontinued, it was always pretty easy to get your hands in a mini. I have a bottle on the way, so I will test the new juice vs. the vintage mini and report back...

    Batches tend to pop up here and there at online shops and retail stores. Not sure where it comes from but it's still the old stock. Retailers usually sell it at approximately the suggested retail price and online discounters usually sell it at an appropriate discount like all their other discounted scents. Some like PerfumeBay.com or 1stPerfume.com who also sell/buy from eBay sell at the marked-up "rare" or "discontinued" prices.

    Not saying it isn't possible however that it might (have/will) come back into production. Hope not; I like it's exclusivity.

    By-the-way, there was another fragrance for men by Nicole Miller made after the one in the orange corregated bottle. I've never tried it and I'm not sure if it's still in production.

    This is very strange indeed ... hopefully it has been resurrected. It's quite a nice scent and I've always found it odd that it got pulled. Once again, there's no accounting for taste!

    well...I went ahead and went back to the shop...they had gotten it in today.
    I got a 75ML FOR $35....all they had was 75ml bottles...The SA told me that it is still discontinued but the
    "Warehouse guy" has a contact who came across a stash of the stuff that had been left over in a warehouse somewhere?????
    It doesn't make sense to me....but I'll take it for $35

    It's a strange phenomenon but, yeah, these "warehouse guys" do exist. I came across a woman bent on selling everything her freshly divorced and newly protective ordered to stay the hell away from her ex husband had left in a small warehouse on ebay. I got a half dozen bottles of Ungaro I and Nicole Miller, full size, from her for about $200 for the lot. She threw in dozens of the same scent samples on cards and I'm still using Nicole Miller hand milled soap to shower with. That was three or four years back. Apparently the ex was some sort of fragrance middle man with a nose for the classics.

    And no, no pics of my stuff online. That would only attract the wrong sort of attention from the wrong kind of people. You know, collectors and their ilk.

    Don't know if you've ever visited theperfumecollector.com but he has a ever changing storehouse of the odd, rare, and very discontinued for sale. I wrote and asked how he came up with the things he had and his answer boiled down, more or less to a european version of those warehouse guy types.

    Just picked up 5 bottles of the 75ml from ScentMonkey.com. This should complete my lifetime supply.

    $22 for 75ml = .293 per ml

    This would equate to $36.62 for a 125ml bottle. Great price guys. Grab it if you can.

    I've never tried it so what's so good about it? I'm interested...

    I'm a fan of boozy scents, so the bourbon in this is right up my alley. I've never smelled anything like it, so it's uniqueness combined with being one of my favorite genres of scents, is what make this one special to me...

    scentmonkey.com has a sample for $2.99 if you're interested in trying it...

    LOL "5" bottles he says That's only my most recent small purchase to complete my quest.

    Yes, it is my "deserted island scent" and since it is out of production, it makes sense to stock up. This stuff regularly goes for 2 and 3 times the Scentmonkey.com price on eBay. Seems the 2.5oz size is currently available at a LOT of online sites in the $25-40 range. Must have been a big batch hidden somewhere.

    It's unique. Yes there are similar scents out there but not similar enough for me.

    There are also other discontinued frags I keep an eye out for (decent prices) to add to my lifetime stock.

    I got my bottle today and it's the real, authentic, juice... If you're a fan, pick some up before it's gone... (again)

    While I'm not as motivated as MadScientist (I only bought two bottles), my Nicole Miller showed up yesterday.

    There's a note or accord in the heart to base notes in this that seems similar to a note in Jules. It struck me because the note is apparently unique. Somewhere between nutty and leathery. And of course I have no idea what it is..

So im good for a while....thanks for the tip guys!

    I don't think its being brought back to the market. Its only the 2.5ounce bottle that has flodded the market. 4.2ounce is still very hard to find. Enjoy your cheap bottles while you can! :-)

    Now that I have a full bottle, I'm curious as to how many sprays some of you use? It's an outstanding scent, but I have a hard time getting decent longevity / sillage out of it. I usually use two sprays to the chest, one to each side of the neck, and one to the crook of each elbow. Is this one of those scents that comes alive in the summer?

    Nicole Miller has just signed a contract with Parlux to start a new women's fragrance from scratch. I do believe she has left the mens market since the early 90's.

    More of a cool/cold weather scent IMO. I stop wearing it when the summer heat hits. I use about the same sprays as you except instead of the inner-elbows, i spray a couple sprays per arm to cover the top of my forearms, wrist, and back of hand - lightly since that's a lot of area. I usually refresh at least once during the day, maybe twice because it's definitely a little weak on the sillage and longevity.
