    Another vote for D&G By. What were they thinking to discontinue this gem?
    But reading the lists above makes me sad... so many great fragrances I'll probably never experience.

    "What a strange question" I first thought. But seeing your list now - I am impressed. I don't want to be unduly curious regarding you age. A new member at basenotes can of course be a matured perfumista ! You sure know what was perfect for men in the twentieth century! Wish I knew them all myself! But I do have a small amount of Lanvin's old Vetiver, plus their Monsieur, and Gentleman. Unsurpassed!

    My biggest (lost) treasure is Chanel's Cuir de Russie (from the sixties). A shame what the mere shadow of that one costs nowadays !

    My heart was broken when they decided to discontinue Coriolan by Guerlain. I love it very much and luckily I still have another 2 full 50 ml. bottles in my stock.

    I'm a new member of basenotes, and by way of explanation, I like retro frags. I recently received an old splash bottle of Monsieur Rochas. By way of comparison, I also have the reformulated version (pink color). The older version (gold color) has a much more mature presentation. I have to agree with the reviews stating that the newer version has a candylike odor. Therefore, I have to add Monsieur Rochas (old version) to the list.

    I also must apologize for bumping up another topic on these boards. Sorry, Chris!

    Jacomo Eau Cendree and, you wouldn't believe this, Benetton Colors for Men vintage (the original black bottle, not the blue that is now available). It was probably the first cologne I bought back in the eighties and if a bottle was available today I' d pay 200+ euros to get it. It was so unconvetional that they had to remove about 80% of its notes (mostly basenotes) and reissue it as the blue bottle version. A powerhouse oriental that could very well be a niche fragrance today.

    This is a very puzzling statement about a fragrance still in production...or is there some recent bad news I missed getting ???
