Thread: Help identifying a fragrance
A co-worker brought a gift maybe 10yrs ago for me from Dubai. This cologne was called Toschini Pour Lui. that was written on the bottle. It is a pretty plain shaped triangular bottle, somewhat a smaller fatther version to the Pi bottle shape. I checked the label at the blttom and saw some reference to Paris and Kenza Or Kenzo. Time has worn the writing out. I am enquiring if anyone knkows of this cologne and whre I can get a bottle. I really appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.
If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

Well, clearly there are a lot of people here to help, loveisintheair!
Here's what I came up with:
A Russian website that lists products which have "undergone state registration." A translation by babelfish reads (in part), "Products and company-manufacturer--eau de toilette "TOSCHINI CHERY" (edp) brand "Kenza Toschini" (OKP code 915000), supplied under contract № 03/1-2004 from 23.03.2004g. by LLC "ITEL.RU, 113162, Moscow, st. Mytnaya, 13, p.1, russia Products manufactured by the company "EURO ART" (France)"
So I googled "euro art" with perfume and found:
A copy of a bill of lading from Euro Art to a company called YZY Perfumes, Inc. I browsed YZY's website (http://yzyperfume.com/index.jsp), but not only did I not find Toschini Pour Lui, I didn't even recognize one of the 134 men's fragrances listed. I did note many scents with suspiciously familiar names like Aqua di Mio, Dance & Havana, Plenium, and One Summer. And some appalling names like Macho, Nightinium, Immensity, and Menphis (yes, MENphis, "Just in from Giorgio Monti!").
My suspicion, if I may say so kindly, is that there's probably something already on the market which is fairly popular, has a similar name, and smells fairly close to (and probably better than) your Toschini Pour Lui. I hope you find it.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ......
