    Gucci Envy for Men is my favourite fragrance. Unfortunatelky this has dissapeared from perfume stores. What would be best substitute for Gucci Envy that is very close or same as Envy.

    You can order it online very easily.

    If your main criteria is ability to find it in stores, there aren't many options. Outside of stores, plenty of options, but then you might as well just get Envy.

    Envy was my go-to. And I still have some. But MiP is very nice and that may replace it. Totally different but I like them both.

    The only place I can find Envy is Amazon or Ebay. Are there any other sources that aren't sold out?

    I prefer l'Occitane Vetyver. Used to wear envy, but it bowed out to Vetyver. Floris Santal is great as well, but a little pricey compared to Envy.

    Sold out at the first two places. Is perfumestand.com reliable? I've never heard of it.

    Carven Homme is very similar to Gucci Envy. Less expensive, too.

    Yes they are, they have a boutique In the jersey gardens mall Elizabeth NJ called La Perfumerie, I have bought many fragrances from them they are 100% legit. They actually had a vintage bottle of Dior Homme intense 1.7 oz that I bought last year (silver top)

    The directory show's some Envy for sale at one site for $62.00. Click through and it's a 1.7oz bottle for $114.00. These are the kinds of prices I'm seeing all over. It seems to be readily available online but it's certainly not sold at it's prices I remember from just few years ago.

    Has anyone heard of this juice being counterfeited?

    Floris Santal, as others have mentioned, but also the very underrated Pal Zileri Sartoriale.

    You might want to try YSL Opium EDP. The star anise in the front end is very similar to Gucci Envy. Envy is greener, woodier and more incense-like on the dry down, but they have a similar vibe. Both are excellent fragrances. Opium EDP has much more sillage and longevity, so be careful with the number of sprays if you decide to try it.

    I've had one on my TL for awhile and not a single person has inquired about it. You guys suck at the internet.

    Carven Homme and Floris Santal are almost close to $100 for 3.4 oz on ebay and Amazon... or out of stock. Any other similar cologne for Gucci envy?

    The L'Occitane without a doubt: not only similar but also better.
