    Default Gucci Pour Homme - what is a fair price?

    I really want to own a bottle of this and I have managed to find a Brand new sealed 100ml bottle for £80.00. Do you think this is a fair price or too much?

    Thanks

    I like this scent a lot but personally I wouldn't pay that. Bear in mind it is a strong one and it would take a long time to get through 100ml unless you have a very small collection. Have you tried DS2's Potion? It is quite similar (to me) although a bit lighter.

    If you want it that badly then it's fair IMO.

    I paid $50 for a 1.7 Gucci Pour Homme I, it should last me quite a while and I felt it was a fair price considering the relative rarity of the fragrance now.

    I paid around $70-80 for my bottles of Gucci pour Homme earlier this year, but considering the growing rarity of this scent, I don't think the price is ridiculous. Have you tried it before, do you know you love it?

    If I didn't have any bottles, I'd certainly pay $1.00-$1.25/ml for this scent.

    Gucci pour homme undoubtedly is one of the finest fragrances on the earth. I got this bottle very recently and was a 2010 release for 50 $.

    Cheers!!!!

    I looked on ebay for you, and I guess I looked for me too because I'm interested in this one. The price you've been quoted seems quite reasonable, in my view.

    I ordered mine from a store in London who i guess were getting rid of old stock. The manager must not have realised their rarity as they were going for around £23 from memory. Gucci Pour Homme...absolute classic!

    It was an ebay item that didn't sell and I contacted the seller who said he would accept £80.00. Here is the link mate:

    He may have sold it, but worth contacting the guy - good luck

    Buy a bottle of Balmain's Carbone.
    It'll cost you 30 bucks, and they
    smell identical.

    This is a discontinued fragrance, but I had a local merchant try to sell me 100ml for $65 inclusive yesterday. But Tommy Bahama (in brown bottle) smells identical for $20.

    There's a fragrance kiosk inside Manhattan Mall in NYC that sells GPH I. I don't have any intention of buying it, but out of curiousity, I asked how much he is charging for it. $90 was his answer for a 1.7oz bottle. My local fragrance store here in Jersey City has the same bottle for just $60.

    I assume you're asking for the one in Manhattan Mall since you are located in NYC. I was there yesterday, and only saw the small bottle, which is sitting on top of GPH II. Not sure if they have the 100ml, as I didn't ask (turned off by the high price). Sorry. They seem to have some discontinued products like BY Man (D&G), not sure if it's authentic since I wasn't able to check the bottle.

    Indeed, yes, I meant the Manhattan Mall. And I was just in there last night, too! Thanks for the info.

    I've seen some for sale on eBay, but the box is black not chequered and it's described as aftershave rather than EDT. Is this fake?

    No, it's aftersave.


    For a sealed Gucci Pour Homme 3.4 oz., don't expect to pay less than $100 and try not to spend more than $150.

    You can still find them randomly in Sephoras believe it or not. I found a brand new one a few months ago and I thought I was seeing things. Scooped it for $73.

    If you look around you should be able to find it for less. I bought my first bottle in the U.K. so I know it had wide distribution there. I got it at Harrod's around '02 and I think I paid about £80 for it but I know prices went down before it was discontinued. There are probably bottles still sitting on shelves for the old reduced retail prices, but will require some searching and looking - lots of looking around. Watch Ebay for a while. On the other hand, your time might be worth more to you than the £30 - £50 you might save by finding a bargain. £80 could buy you lots of saved time searching for great deal. If you can easily afford it, I would say buy that bottle.

    I just saw that. Is this thread a year old?

    Sadly, I'm very poor so the cheaper the better. I assume the aftershave is much weaker. I'd never seen the aftershave, which is what worried me.
    I can't go to Sephora, as I live in the UK. The eBay prices are ridiculous. The last 100ml EDT went for something like £150. Some people obviously have more money than they know what to do with!
    I have heard that Comme des Garçons 2 is similar, but that's silly money too. I might go for some Juicy Couture Dirty English as a cheap substitute.

    Carbone de Balmain is a very good substitute. A quality fragrance that can be had for $35 for 100 mls. I actually prefer it to GPH.

    You may want to take a look at it.

    That IS the correct answer though.

    Look online. Check ebay. Check Amazon. See what the going rate is for a bottle and then ask yourself "Would I pay that much?" I think it's worth it, but you're not me, so my opinion isn't relevant to your wallet.

    EDIT: oh, geez, we've been ensnared by the outdated thread trap
