    Default Richard James: No longer making fragrance?

    The Richard James EDT was a wonder masculine tuberose with spices. Very complex.

    They also had a few more scents.

    Have they gone out of the fragrance business and gone back to just clothing and the bespoke trade?

    I could not find any fragrances on their site.

    I adored that first scent too. Really, really beautiful.

    One can find this on eBay in the UK, Riverwide, but I fear it has been discontinued.

    Domenico Caraceni was another one that caused a big stir early on and quickly disappeared from the market.

    It's lovely to read such kind, encouraging remarks about our fragrances on this site.
    Unfortunately, we are currently restructuring the fragrance side of the business and are taking a sabbatical.
    But we will be returning!
    We will announce further details on or website as soon as we have them. You can also register with us on our home page - www.richardjames.co.uk - if you'd like to receive direct news from us.

    Honored to have the reply come direct from the man himself, and welcome to Basenotes. I'm also a fan, and look forward to your return to the "fragrance side".

    How wonderful to have a personal reply! It is great to hear of a return to fragrances. Please send a press release to Grant Osborne.

    There only seems to be one other masculine tuberose on the scene with Arquiste Boutonniere.

    Oh wow! How fantastic to get such a direct response.

    I really, really hope the Richard James EDT makes a return in some form! Please don't tamper with the scent, as it was truly beautiful.

    By the way, Diptyque's unisex 34 Boulevard Saint Germain reminds me a little of Richard James EDT. It's probably the tuberose. Check it out if you're looking for something tuberose-y!

    I found two 100ml bottles of the EDT in a department store today. I couldn't believe it! They've clearly been sitting in the stockroom for years, as I visit that store every single week and have never seen them. I guess it's old stock they were finally selling off! I'm keeping one for myself and selling the other one here:

    If Richard James is reading this, I am *begging* you to please bring out this EDT again. I've been using the bottle I found recently and even though it has aged, it is still a gorgeous, elegant, sophisticated, soft scent. I've already had two compliments from people when I wore it. If you are getting back into the fragrance industry, please try to recreate the EDT as close as possible. It's utterly sublime!

    I saw 2 or 3 Richard James fragrances in Harrods a few months ago. They may have some left

    Since we have the attention of Richard James, I am going to address the elephant in the room...
    Has there been any change in the formulation?

    Default Re: Richard James: No longer making fragrance?

    All will be revealed soon! Sorry to appear coy - just finalising a couple of things re release date.

    Last time I tested Richard James, I sprayed it on the back of one hand and then sprayed vintage M7 on the back of my other hand... The M7 was spanked hard by the Richard James.
    Expectations remain equally high for the new release.

    Richard James Edt is simply delicious!

    This is my favorite: Richard James Savile Row EdT. So delicious, tuberose, coriander, sandalwood and a musky patchouli base.

    Great to hear. I have never sampled your fragrances, but the hype has me curious indeed! I look forward to discovering your line!
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    100 ml bottle production.
    Richard James Savile Row EDT will be available again in a week or so.

    Will samples be available for purchase? If not, do you know where this may be tested? Thanks.

    Hello
    No samples, I'm afraid.
    Initially it will only be available from our Savile Row shop (where you will be able to test it!), but we are close to finalising outside distribution.
    We'll put news here and on our website as we have it.

    Thanks for the information! I'm praying this is similar to the original fragrance.

    Just received my vintage bottle from Universal in Kuwait. This stuff is simply gorgeous. Similar to Dia Man but very subtle and nuanced. Very interested to try the new rendition.

    I believe there were two formulations of the 'vintage' Richard James EDT. The last batch of the EDT (green juice) smelt more synthetic than the batch that first came out (golden juice).

    This is good to know, I was flabbergasted when I heard that RJ was not longer offering perfumes, but hearing this is a big relief.
    I hope they do not change the line.
    I own every fragrance Richard James makes, the EdT, the EdC, Vetiver Cologne, Lavender Cologne and Cardamom Cologne.
    I love them all, but my favorite is the incredible tuberose based EdT. Read my reviews.

    This is the golden batch. Good stuff.
