    I just got this today too! From the Amazon seller. I ordered it last week when the price was around $67 dollars. I checked it today and he keeps raising the price and now it is $77. He does still have 19 left.
    I'm wearing it today and it smells great! I like this better than the EdT I used to own.

    Ok, I sprayed a shot on my wrist... initial sniff is spicy (star anise???), semi-sweet and a strong menthol on the top notes... not sure if the menthol is from peppermint or some kind of a mint oil? then in the background you have the cocoa note that everyone is talking about... it has been about 30 minute later now and the menthol is slightly fading away... now I'm getting a floral note along with the patchouli...and the woody base note is starting to appear... i also get a hint of vanilla now too... this is just a very interesting fragrance so far... let's see where this fragrance take me in the dry down?

    Ok now it has been about an hr since I sprayed it on... there is still a slight menthol note there, but not as strong as the initial scent... now I'm getting the sandalwood with the vanilla more...but still that cocoa note is still the dominant note... it's still a semi-sweet fragrance, but not quite a gormound fragrance... it's starting to shine more now... very nice....

    If +1 means I agree, then +1.

    As much attention as they get, I thought they would be overrated before I sampled them. I was dead wrong. Was it ever decided that Extreme has been officially discontinued?

    I don't believe it's been discontinued, but it's just not sold on a conventional retail distribution basis in the US. I believe it's still sold in Europe.

    if anything this fragrance is underrated since it is not sold in the u.s. the average person doesn't know about it or can't get their hands on a bottle. =) congrats and enjoy!

    Awesome fragrance, one of my favorite scents of all time. It's a beast for the fall and winter months. In the summer I use the EDT

    The drydown is fantastic and on my skin it lasts for ages.
    The first time I used this fragrance I sprayed on a bit too much but I got the most and best compliments I have ever received on a fragrance that time.

    I just got mine too. Not worth buying if you have the EDT. No big difference except stronger. I think all these differences people are smelling are completely in their head in all of the extremes. It make people feel more special if they have a hard to find parfum version of any fragrance. Please don't respond to this, I know im not going to convince anyone otherwise. Its just a stronger concentration of the same mixture of chemicals in a lesser amount of alcohol. Unless......its been reformulated? Can someone please start a thread debating this question.

    I have a feeling there must be some critical differences in skin chemistry. On me, there is a _very_ noticeable difference between the edt and edp--edpt is deeper, _much_ longer lasting, and of course the dry cocoa. I tried l'instant edt, and find it a much "brighter" frag.

    I, for one, do not find the fragrance overrated. It has earned its reputation. Only a few other frags that I have tried can compete with the depth and power of the drydown. I sprayed it once on my wife's coat (just to give her a little reminder of me, we live in different cities right now) and it was still going strong--and I mean really strong--after 2 weeks.
