    Default Richard James: No longer making fragrance?

    The Richard James EDT was a wonder masculine tuberose with spices. Very complex.

    They also had a few more scents.

    Have they gone out of the fragrance business and gone back to just clothing and the bespoke trade?

    I could not find any fragrances on their site.

    I adored that first scent too. Really, really beautiful.

    One can find this on eBay in the UK, Riverwide, but I fear it has been discontinued.

    Domenico Caraceni was another one that caused a big stir early on and quickly disappeared from the market.

    It's lovely to read such kind, encouraging remarks about our fragrances on this site.
    Unfortunately, we are currently restructuring the fragrance side of the business and are taking a sabbatical.
    But we will be returning!
    We will announce further details on or website as soon as we have them. You can also register with us on our home page - www.richardjames.co.uk - if you'd like to receive direct news from us.
    Best

    Honored to have the reply come direct from the man himself, and welcome to Basenotes. I'm also a fan, and look forward to your return to the "fragrance side".

    How wonderful to have a personal reply! It is great to hear of a return to fragrances. Please send a press release to Grant Osborne.

    There only seems to be one other masculine tuberose on the scene with Arquiste Boutonniere.

    Oh wow! How fantastic to get such a direct response.

    I really, really hope the Richard James EDT makes a return in some form! Please don't tamper with the scent, as it was truly beautiful.

    By the way, Diptyque's unisex 34 Boulevard Saint Germain reminds me a little of Richard James EDT. It's probably the tuberose. Check it out if you're looking for something tuberose-y!

    Nothing like getting info from the head source!

    I found two 100ml bottles of the EDT in a department store today. I couldn't believe it! They've clearly been sitting in the stockroom for years, as I visit that store every single week and have never seen them. I guess it's old stock they were finally selling off! I'm keeping one for myself and selling the other one here:

    If Richard James is reading this, I am *begging* you to please bring out this EDT again. I've been using the bottle I found recently and even though it has aged, it is still a gorgeous, elegant, sophisticated, soft scent. I've already had two compliments from people when I wore it. If you are getting back into the fragrance industry, please try to recreate the EDT as close as possible. It's utterly sublime!

    I saw 2 or 3 Richard James fragrances in Harrods a few months ago. They may have some left

    Since we have the attention of Richard James, I am going to address the elephant in the room...
    Has there been any change in the formulation?
