    Default Paul Smith London

    Hey all, I am hoping this isn't something which has been reposted many times before... I recently found my bottle of Paul Smith London which I had hidden away because the atomizer stopped working, fortunately I was able to salvage the remaining few applications. Now in looking to buy a replacement, it appears that this one has long been discontinued, as on eBay it's incredibly expensive, and it's not available on Paul Smith's website. Please tell me I am not looking hard enough and this one is still available...

    I could tell you that, but I'd be lying...

    Any chance I could buy it online and ship it to the US in that case?

    I'd assume that they'd ship to the USA. E.g. Cheapsmells would be an option

    I'd seek out the original rather than the more recent UK relaunch version if you're a real fan.........

    it was reformulated? That makes sense. It sounded like something I would like but I was very underwhelmed when I tested it recently.
    Haven't found a scent I really like yet from Paul Smith.
    Love his shirts and cardigans though.

    There's a difference IMO, yes, and I own both original & relaunch versions. It's more to do with all-round potency/sillage, which was massive in the original.

    And yes, I'd agree he's better for clothes & accesories than for frags! London excepted.......

    Sorry to be problematic... how do you differentiate the original from the reformulation? I'm wondering which one I have (it smells great, so no worries there; just thinking about buying another bottle and wouldn't want a watered down or less intense scent to the one that I have)

    The reformulated ones only came in the 30ml size, this I know for sure.
    I think the original ones only came in 50ml/100ml though I could be wrong on this point.

    I think you're right about that.

    I wore this the other day after not wearing it for a while; I liked it. There's something nice about that coconut and brandy interplay.

    Spot on. I don't recall whether the original came in this size or not, but the relaunch was definitely only in this size.

    The original, at least the 50/100ml sizes, came in heavy duty, cylindrical packaging, whereas the relaunch was a more straightforward thin cardboard box.

    Thanks for this; I actually have the reformulated version and find it quite potent, so all is well!

    Sillage and projection are pretty massive when it comes to the 30ml. This stuff lasts for a week on e.g. a jacket, overpowering other scents, almost annoyingly so.

    I've got a 30 ml decant that I'd be willing to part with...pm me and we can talk. I think it's been sprayed 3 times.

    Actually, it seems that the original issue came in 30ml too, as I recently acquired a sealed 30ml bottle in the original, cylindrical packaging....

    Violets smelling like coconut. A metrosexual scent with amazig longevity and presence, ideal for a clubbing night. I have to go easy with the trigger at the sake of beig singnalled as the cologe guy.

    I am glad you mention this. I recently contacted the Paul Smith headquarter in London and was told that the fragrance has not been re~launched, that the 30ml bottles were old stock ~ the last remaining stock, which is currently being sold at various outlets.

    EDIT:

    I think I cleared them out...
