    Comme des Garcons - Burnt Sugar.

    Just so I wouldn't have to go so slowly with my current bottle which took me forever to find.

    I changed my mind. I don't need a Cloud City perfume. Bring back Halston Couture, and with the old oakmoss please.

    Oh, I'm so glad Halstone Couture, Eau de Patou (exquisite) and the original Femme formulation have all been mentioned.

    And then there's Deneuve, of course.

    And Gauloise by Molyneux.

    And Lanvin's My Sin.

    And just about all the Schiaparellis: Sleeping, Zut!, and so on.

    I think 1stperfume is the one etailer that most people on basenotes know to avoid. Folks correct me if I'm wrong about this? (see other threads for more info)

    To answer your query, I haven't tried many of the uber classics, so my bring back would be Faberge Woodhue. I just loved it as a teen, and the reformulation is not the same.

    Apart from resurrecting the original formulas of great classics, I would bring back two that are gone altogether:

    Coty La Rose Jacqueminot

    Coty Chypre

    I am lucky enough to have small decants of each, and am wearing Chypre right now. When I first tried it last year , believeing it to be new to me beforehand, I was rather upset to find that I knew it well from childhood but would rather not smell it again for the associations it raised. I'm past all that now. I adore it. I am wearing it this evening to help repel doubts and anxieties. When I first tried it , those very things were the results of the fragrance itself.

    I marvel at how a scent of perfection, plus even a little time, can change one's perspective.

    If I could restore just one reformulated fragrance, it would be Shalimar.

    If I could bring back one discontinued fragrance, it would be Deneuve.

    You can still buy it from Lloyds Pharmacy at least. Our local has some! I almost went for it, but have one coming my way in a swap instead.

    How odd - I was on the Lloyds Pharmacy website yesterday, ordering a bargain bottle of Burberry for Women for my mother-in-law, and spotted it. Was surprised to see it still in circulation with the hype around the new one.

    They've done away with City Glam, I hear, which was rather nice - I know someone with a teeny bit left in her canister!

    I don't know why Armani keep killing all their nicest products. Night was discontinued at some point, too, causing my budding-perfumista-self to have an anxiety attack. It's the only scent I've ever repurchased, AND I like the bottle. Bah humbug.
    Turns out it was never discontinued in the first place, and I fell out of love halfway into my second bottle.

    You've all forgotten I already listed one, right?
    That means I can resurrect Pink Pepper/Poivre Rose by the Body Shop. I still think it's a dead ringer for OJ Woman.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Deneuve for me, too.....that stuff was intoxicatingly wonderful!

    ChantillyLace: I had a bf in the mid/late 80's and I bought him a gift set of Bene by Ben Rickert.
    It came with a little blue soap on a rope and as ridiculous as it sounds, it was in the figure of a hippopotamus. That scent was amazing, I hadn't thought about it for a long time and you reminded me. I see why you lament it so.

    I have a reasonable supply of this to keep me going for quite a long time but even so, no way should this be discontinued!

    Can't stop at one, must list two:

    Guerlain Djedi -- love it and i'm nursing a few drops left
    Lanvin Scandal -- I have managed to purchase a couple of unopened bottles, but alas, the topnotes on them are very fleeting.

    Love's Fresh Lemon in the original formulation. It was a great hot-weather cologne.

    Emilio Pucci " Signor VIVARA " and the female version of 1965
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I'd like Montana Parfum de Peau to be restored to its former eighties glory. The stuff that has its name nowadays is awful. Parfum de Peau used to have a brightness to it and was very sophisticated - sleek but vibrant. I'd like Gucci Accenti to be brought back only because I'm curious about it having read reviews by people who loved it.
