I thought I would let you Cuiron lovers in on this now that I have bought 3 bottles for myself!
Yep, pretty awesome deal. I got my first two bottles yesterday in the mail. They are NIB shrink wrapped and beautiful.

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.
Is it back in production like some of the other scents that have made a comeback recently? We'll wait and see!
I just saw it on the BE site and thought I was going to break the news!
I wonder if manufacture has resumed.
actually...i've been hearing that CUIRON is coming back into production.....a friend of mine said he read it somewhere....wikipedia or something, but i couldn't find it.
I was in Nordstrom's today and saw a bottle of Kiehl's Musk EDT. I was shocked how similar the bottle is to Cuiron.

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?

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.
I doubt it is wishful thinking, the trend has been shocking.
Nicole Miller for Men
Giorgio Red for Men
Giorgio Beverly Hills
Helmut Lang Cuiron
Now only original Balenciaga pour Homme, Bal a Versailles and Patou Pour Homme (and Prive)
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.
Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!
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 was never really impressed by cuiron, to me it smelled like that powdery smell Kleenex's have....
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.

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.
I just ordered a bottle and a bottle of Kiehl's which was similarly priced. Used the 10% discount code too, can't wait to get them
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

My sale thread has some of my underappreciated fragrances looking for a good, new home...
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.
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.
Arrrrrrgh, I want a bottle of this so badly and I don't want to pay a hundred dollars for it! This is one of the best things I've ever run across and of COURSE I miss the boat on it!
well, its fall 2008, and i am disappointed
anyone know if the re-launch is for real, or is it just a hoax to get cuiron prices down?

I wonder how many heart attacks the re-appearance of this thread is causing with that title.
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.
LOL it was I! Can't wait till April
