    "What a strange question" I first thought. But seeing your list now - I am impressed. I don't want to be unduly curious regarding you age. A new member at basenotes can of course be a matured perfumista ! You sure know what was perfect for men in the twentieth century! Wish I knew them all myself! But I do have a small amount of Lanvin's old Vetiver, plus their Monsieur, and Gentleman. Unsurpassed!

    My biggest (lost) treasure is Chanel's Cuir de Russie (from the sixties). A shame what the mere shadow of that one costs nowadays !

    Talking Re: What are you favorite discontinued colognes?

    My heart was broken when they decided to discontinue Coriolan by Guerlain. I love it very much and luckily I still have another 2 full 50 ml. bottles in my stock.

    Default Re: What are you favorite discontinued colognes?

    I'm a new member of basenotes, and by way of explanation, I like retro frags. I recently received an old splash bottle of Monsieur Rochas. By way of comparison, I also have the reformulated version (pink color). The older version (gold color) has a much more mature presentation. I have to agree with the reviews stating that the newer version has a candylike odor. Therefore, I have to add Monsieur Rochas (old version) to the list.

    I also must apologize for bumping up another topic on these boards. Sorry, Chris!

    Default Re: What are you favorite discontinued colognes?

    Jacomo Eau Cendree and, you wouldn't believe this, Benetton Colors for Men vintage (the original black bottle, not the blue that is now available). It was probably the first cologne I bought back in the eighties and if a bottle was available today I' d pay 200+ euros to get it. It was so unconvetional that they had to remove about 80% of its notes (mostly basenotes) and reissue it as the blue bottle version. A powerhouse oriental that could very well be a niche fragrance today.

    Thats the saddest thing I've ever heard ):
    I don't buy discontinued fragrances: I'm afraid I'll love it too much only to have it lost for ever; reduced to being experienced only through the basenotes directory.

    I would like to see available:

    Patou Pour Homme (and some of the 'cocktail bar' series).
    The original Houbigant Fougere (?) the one that gave us the name fougere . . .
    Guerlain Apres L'Onde Parfum Extrait

    OK - a year and a half later and Houbigant have happily obliged with a re-issue of Fougere Royale that apparently does it's damnedest to stay true to the original - nice

    I have since located Patou Pour Homme, Eau de Patou and Maxims Pour Homme - all amazing. I would also like to try the Patou Prive PH, sounds like a lost classic.

    As far as I know, Signature is still in production, but if you are right I should start getting nervous because I an down to less than a third of the bottle and I would really miss it
    Ungaro II, I am out now, still available but hard to find.
    Indian Vetiver by BBW, (it smelled identical to Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver but at one tenth of Tom's price). Fortunately I stashed 8 bottles before it disapeared from the market, I am down to 5 now.
    Halston 1-12, I have 3 bottles left, but still can be found at Marshall's and ebay.
    Tom Ford's Black Orchid Voile de Fleur, I have 3 bottles left and still available in ebay.
    G Laroche's Horizon, 3 bottles left but still available in ebay.
    Cigar Aficionado, down to my last bottle, but still available in ebay.
    Fendi Uomo, down to my last bottle, but still available in ebay. (The original FU, not the reformulated one).
    Sashka Black by Martine Micallef, down to my last bottle, but still available in ebay.
    Tobacco Flower by The Body Shop, was my signature fragrance for years, after discontinued I stashed 11 bottles and now I am down to my last. Can't be found no matter how hard I try.
    Witness by Jacques Bogart, down to my last bottle, but still available in ebay.
