    Exclamation New Scent Feb 2013: Gucci PH II Intense

    Heard this from a Dillard's rep. They will be receiving a new Gucci frag in Feb. Gucci PH II Intense. I hope its true because i did find the regular Gucci PH II to light for anyone to notice on me, thus giving it to my brother. I'm anxious to sniff this out!

    I like Gucci Pour Homme II as it is. What I'd love to see is a 6.8 oz version of Gucci Pour Homme II and I.

    Hang on. An intense version of a scent they're discontinuing? When I called Gucci recently, I was told GphII will disappear from their website and retailers when their current stock is sold through. GphI is already gone.

    I suspect what the rep meant was something like a Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme Intense.

    ...don't get me wrong... I'd be the first to rush out and try a GphII Intense.

    Very surprising. I thought Gucci Pour Homme II was on the way out, so to hear of a new flanker for it is very unexpected!

    I don't think that's true. Сompany management of Procter & Gamble Prestige doesn't like anything that came out before Gucci by GUcci.

    Nope I'm not mistaken she said and i quote "Gucci is going to be releasing a new scent, a flanker of Gucci PH II, an Intense version." Just because one scent is on the way out doesn't mean they can't capitalize on it's success. I hope they are releasing this though.

    I thought GPHII was being discontinued. Strange that Gucci would release an intense version. Great news though.

    Hmm... well .. maybe less feeling of trying to get another bottle(s) of GPHII with this info.

    I called Gucci, and the lady mentioned about that she/they haven't been told about GPHII being discontinued. And she didn't confirm or deny about upcoming frags.

    I've also done e-mails to Gucci and I maybe did NOT get a response to my latest one trying to get a solid answer about GPHII being discontinued.

    Going to send another e-mail..

    There is no official word on Gucci PH II being discontinued and it would be wise for Gucci to make this Gucci PH II Intense move to redeem themselves after the lousy pathetic frags they've been putting out lately. Let's just hope this isn't another fail!

    True. Especially since Gucci has nothing to redeem themselves for, really. Sure, people like us are likely to scoff at junk like Gucci By Gucci, but I bet it sells well. And Guilty easily outsells anything they ever saw from Gucci Pour Homme (2003) or Gucci Pour Homme II. Heck, Guilty probably outsells what Gph and GphII used to sell COMBINED. I don't enjoy it, but it's a hit. Gucci is making a very clear move toward pop culture. Their newer scents don't do anything for me, but from a business standpoint, what they're doing makes perfect sense.

    Gucci Pour Homme II was a Tom Ford era scent. You can tell just by looking at the bottle. I'd find it downright shocking if Gucci made a flanker of it. If GphII Intense is released, I'll be the first to admit I was 100% wrong, but, I'd bet on this being Gucci By Gucci Pour Homme Intense (and a misinformed Dillard's rep). The Tom Ford era at Gucci is over.

    I've always wondered why this fragrance took 4 years to create. I assumed it was because Tom Ford left and projects got put on the back burner.

    I don't understand why they can't make a scent like GPH II sell by the bucketload. It's not as if it's some sort of weird, unpleasant smell. I'm pretty sure most men would think it was well worth buying. They clearly don't WANT it to sell though. They'd prefer to market a feeble, non-scent like Gucci by Gucci and hire James Franco to flog it for them. If the juice inside the bottle was the same as GPH II, I'm sure it would sell even better. Nobody in their right mind, fragrance enthusiast or not, would prefer the smell of Gucci by Gucci over Gucci Pour Homme II. I truly believe that.

    Yeah, I don't think Tom Ford had anything to do with Gucci Pour Homme II. It's still beautiful though, but it's definitely the last quality fragrance from Gucci. Everything since then has been utterly dire.

    Huge fan of GPHII. Bought 2 bottles of it just 2 weeks ago. Only negative IMO is that it is a little weak with longevity. An Intense version would be GREAT! As long as by making it more "intense" they dont mess up the formulation to where it doesn't smell at all like the original.

    Just yesterday I bought Gucci Pour Homme II after going through a large sample vial in 3 days. Now maybe thinking I should have waited for an INTENSE as more sillage wouldn't hurt. Then again, Intense/EDP concentrations can occasionally ruin a scent (Voyage d'Hermes Parfum IMO)

    I have GBGPH - The Original. II wears much worse on me, almost acidic. I will have to go try out the new one.

    That would be great and GPH II is very good but very subtle.

    I hope it will be really launched, but i agree that Guccy by Gucci Pour Homme Intense sounds sounds more likely

    According to what I was told by someone at Gucci, it's following the same pattern Gucci Pour Homme followed and will disappear when their stock runs out. If you REALLY look around, you can still find a bottle of Gucci Pour Homme on store shelves (I snagged the last one at a Sephora two weeks ago) but it disappeared from websites, including Gucci's site and Sephora, back in July. So, if GphII follows the same pattern, it'll disappear from Gucci's site first. ...? I don't understand why anyone would hide the fact that they're discontinuing a fragrance. Let it be known and they'd probably sell out faster. So odd!

    Interestingly, I bought a backup bottle of GphII at fragrancenet last week for around $60. Today, it's up to $84.

    Also interestingly - and confusingly - I saw GphII disappear from Nordstrom months ago, but they had a few bottles last week. Very weird. The SA seemed as surprised as I was when she spotted it.

    OH! MY! GOD! YES! I don't get it either! I honestly think Gucci doesn't know how to market their fragrances. I've gotten more compliments from GphII than from Aventus (though Aventus does quite well too), and the compliments have been more... uhm... more inappropriate With Aventus, I've been told I smell great. And that's awesome. But with GphII, I've had women comment on how delicious I smell. And I think any guy knows, that's BETTER. I'm not saying GphII is better than Aventus. I'm just saying that, at least for me, it's a superb date-night scent. To me, GphII is the perfect combination of classy yet sexy. Most sexy scents hit you in the face with the fact that they're going for sex appeal, which is fine, but it's not what GphII does. GphII is subtle sexy. It's not for a guy going clubbing, hoping to get lucky. There are much better scents for that. GphII is for the guy who has a date, and yeah, he sure wouldn't mind getting lucky, but his real priority is to have a great evening and get a second date. GphII has a gentlemanly vibe.

    I never believe that stuff. It's just marketing. I suspect the real reason Gucci didn't release a follow up to Gucci Pour Homme between 2003 and 2007 was because Gucci had other priorities at the time (though who knows, really). GphII is a great scent. But 4 years to create it? I don't buy it.

    If GPH II really is being discontinued, CdG Amazingreen makes a pretty good substitute. Tried it today and it's about 75% the same.

    I suspect this is a business move.

    Wella had the license for Gucci fragrances for years and then was absorbed by Procter and Gamble. So Gucci fragrances aren't really Gucci, they are Procter and Gamble with a licensed Gucci name on them.

    Since Gucci Pour Homme I & II product predate this merger, I am guessing that maybe these lines are being discontinued because they are contracted out to a fragrance manufacturer that isn't P&G's preferred supplier. By discontinuing, and then re-emerging with a reformulated, "new" fragrance (Gucci Pour Homme II Intense) they would be able to essentially void their obligation to the original creator/manufacturer but keep the product brand and all of the capital expended on it from becoming a complete wash.

    Typically, this is accomplished with a silent reformulation that changes the fragrance formula enough that they can switch manufacturers, but maybe P&G see an opportunity in addressing some product brand issue with the "Intense" nomenclature. That is the only explanation I can think of for the inexplicable move of discontinuing a core product brand and then emerging with a flanker.
