    Question Calvin Klein Escape For Men Discontinued??

    Hi

    I recently heard that Calvin Klein Escape for Men has been discontinued. I found evidence on one website to support this and also, found that Escape is no longer listed on the Calvin Klein website.

    Could anyone possibly confirm whether this is true or not??

    Thanks in advance for any additional info

    Disappointing if true as Escape is my second favourite Calvin Klein after Obsession.

    You can still get it at Boots. Don't know if it's discontinued.

    I've been hearing on/again-off/again rumors for a while about Escape's discontinuation. Most recently, I heard that the discontinuation was on again, and after one last batch of EdT for the 2008 holiday season (the ancillary products were discontinued earlier), it was to be discontinued along with Truth for Men, and that all remaining stock is sold on a stock-turnover basis.

    I guess I'll have to check up with the Coty Prestige rep.

    I've seen bottles of Escape at my local Marshalls, and both bottles are on every discount e-retailer site. Better stock up!

    Would be a good idea to stock up. I can't imagine you needing to buy a lot of bottles though. Maybe 5-10 for a lifetime?

    I contacted Coty directly and was informed that ESCAPE is NOT being discontinued. OBSESSION NIGHT and TRUTH are being "phased out" and current stock will be exhausted. Too bad, I kinda liked them both.

    Please post your evidence instead of just saying things.

    My local high end department stores still are selling Escape.

    It is odd I have to admit because Contradiction for women was discontinued in the US when Calvin Klein scents were still marketed by Unliever. Yet recently I discovered a new bottle at Marshalls and looked in the back to see if it said Unliever but instead it said Coty Prestige - so these items are still being marketed some where....????

    Hi

    Note to SirSlarty - I wasnt just saying things, my heading had question marks, therefore I was asking a question which I thought other Basenote members may be able to shed more light on.

    Escape is still widely sold everywhere but that doesnt mean it'll be easy to find in a few months if it was discontinued recently.

    As for "evidence" - well here it is : http://www.perfume4u.co.uk/acatalog/...vin_Klein.html

    Its has a list of all the CK brands and says "discontinued" next to Escape.

    Also, why is Escape no longer listed on the CK website??

    I didn't claim that I was 100% sure it had been discontinued but the evidence above seems to suggest otherwise. Anyway I'm going to buy a couple of bottles just in case.

    Thanks for your comments

    I had a 15ml bottle in 1996, and just bought a 100ml bottle last week. When I was younger I didn't like it much, but now really like it.

    Good that it's not being discontinued.

    Interesting, those are the two CK fragrances I own!. I have 20 percent of a 3.4oz Truth bottle... and just a little bit left of a sample for escape. I'm not too crazy about either of the fragrances anyway. Calvin Klein fragrances, imo, just have this generic quality to them...

    I have a bottle of Escape I will never use. That stuff is harsh and smells like an old lady's perfume.

    I actually wore it for a while, several years ago when I was just starting to develop an interest in fragrance. Now I realize it's been shockingly mis-named all this time. It should have been named "Flee," as in "Get the f--- away as fast as you can, it's horrible." Can't bear it anymore.

    Still, it's another valuable component of my collection. Love it or hate it, that's what collecting is all about. Keep it around, it might increase in value. I might actually like it again someday. Then again, it might morph into something frightfully toxic that consumes the rest of my collection in a spontaneous chemical meltdown. Stuff like that makes this hobby really interesting, I guess.

    I love Escape on a woman! Always turns my head. As far as the men's version goes, I really like the shower gel!
