    Good for you j_w_s - when I was in Los Angeles traveling, every store I went into I always looked for Cuiron because if I saw it I was going to PM you, since I knew you had been looking for it desperately.

    Thanks for thinking of me Mike...that is really nice. I think I have enough Cuiron now for my OC to relax.
    It just works well with my skin and all of my friends and coworkers love it on me.

    "A Re-launch of the now discontinued Cuiron For Men cologne is set for the Fall of 2008 by Link Theory Holdings under the brand of Helmut Lang. Proctor & Gamble will be the producer of this new Cuiron Cologne, as they were for the original 2002 version."

    I wonder if this is old stock then, or if Fall of 2008 was an estimate and they're early?

    Oh my, I was about to list some colognes in the for sale section and my almost half full 1.6 oz bottle was going to be one of them. D'oh!

    If these are 1.7 oz, then perhaps this is the new stock since they didn't originally come in 1.7 oz?

    They came in both 1.7 oz and 3.4 oz bottles before. I don't know if there's any truth to the above source, but we'll see.

    That's interesting. I have my bottle/box in hand and it says 1.6 oz on it.

    But then again it also says 50ml right before that, which normally equals 1.7 oz.

    I feel like a HL geek now.

    I should have said 1.6 oz in my original post and the thread title. This stock at beautyencounter is the original stuff I am almost positive guys/gals.

    Sorry...I meant 1.6 oz...also their 100ml bottles I think are 3.3 instead of 3.4.

    I thought you were asking if they were ever made in a smaller sized bottle like a 50ml. Sorry, I misunderstood your question.

    Wow. What's weird is I could have sworn that the BE site also listed them as 1.7 oz, but now I see it says 1.6 oz.

    Did they just fix it or are the drugs I took finally working??

    At any rate, I think we can all relax now.

    Is it really being relaunched or just wishful thinking?

    Sorry I don't think this is a relaunch. I think they just found a large stash somewhere. The Giorgio relaunches have a lengthy list of ingredients I think due to new EEU regulations. The Cuiron I got from Beauty Encounter has a very short list of ingredients which would seem to indicate these bottles were made prior to the new regulations.

    I spoke with Erica (I think that was her name...) at Beautyencounter yesterday briefly when I placed my order. She confirmed that they were just selling off old stock. She knew it was discontinued, and had no idea if it was going to be reintroduced. She did notice a large number or orders for it yesterday...

    I might have to take advantage of this... My current bottle is almost gone (due to the fact I have to spray so much of it!), and so a good back-up bottle would be a good idea! I've begun to layer this with CdG Man 2 - I like the combination!

    you guys are all jerks....i never had a sniff of cuiron but with all your words i had to break the rule i promised i never would...Bilnd buy.

    i am a big fan of Kiehl's musk oil and a huge fan of Nasomatto Duro....and from everything you guys say, it seems to be right in line with those two.

    i think this exception will be justified.
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
    Full 4 oz Bottle of Silver Mountain Water(95% full) for trade(purchased at Nordstrom not online). PM me for details.

    Accepfacts,
    Are you thinking Cuiron might be in line smell wise with Kiehl's and Duro? Or are you thinking it might be in line loudness wise? Either way, you are way off.

    Hermes' Bel Ami is the closest to Cuiron smell wise in my opinion. Whereas Bel Ami's spiciness is quite sharp and in our face, Cuiron's is quite restrained and comforting.

    Oh guys I envy you so much! I'd like to have a bottle of cuiron too but it's almost impossible to find nowadays on the shelves. I really look forward it to be relaunched, possibly in its original formulation with that beautiful medicinal opening note hehe

    I really don't think you could classify Bel Ami as smelling like Kleenex's....but Cuiron to me smells like a box of kleenex, no musk, nothing but powdery blandness...

    Yeah... I'm a lemming, too. Love leather and suede (vintage Lanvin Scandal was a big splurge this past year), so all your talk of this one pushed me right over the edge and into my first blind buy in almost a year. I figure if the Cuiron doesn't end up working on my skin I can always send the bottle to JwS for his stash.

    I was retrying this one from a sample I have (I also owned a bottle of it in the past), and although I enjoyed it at first, as my nose got more accustomed to it. I started picking up that artificial note and feel that a lot of people spoke about before (like CDG doing a leather scent???). I got nauseated with it, so I sold my bottle. Sadly, I still feel the same way.

    I recently tried the leather based scent in the Armani Prive collection (Cuir Amethyste) and it's like Cuiron on steroids. It's one to look into it.

    Cuir Amethyste is Cuiron on Steroids? Ummm...no...not to my nose. Cuir Amethyste is Candy Violets with birch to simulate leather? suede?...I owned a bottle of Cuir Amethyste and sold it in January. Way too feminine for me and and too pretty.
    Cuiron is not for everyone...but it doesn't have a lot in common with Cuir Amethyste . Cuir Amethyste lasts a long time and is very nice, but it is not that flattering on a male IMHO. Way too pretty for me.

    I have a large decant of the Cuir and when I first tried it, I thought of Cuiron, almost a stronger version of it but I might need to retest it. I think there's some similarities, but I'll keep a retest in mind, but I didn't the girly smell. I thought it was actually very unisex and not so flowery as you described. Strange but interesting...

    BE's sister site still has this listed as available, but when you try to purchase it, it comes up as not in stock. I didn't realize this post was from May... I picked up a bottle from BE in July and probably got one of the last because it was off the site the next week.

    As I wrote on my 'Derby' thread last week, I came across a bottle at one of those mall fragrance stands last week and bought it for $40.
