    Default Davidoff Zino/Zino Davidoff discontinued.

    In case anyone is wondering about the status of the frag, here's a response I've received via e-mail:



    "Hi Robert,

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate hearing from you, and welcome the opportunity to address your concern.

    Based upon nationwide market trends and purchasing patterns, the decision was made to discontinue Davidoff Zino. We realize it is disappointing when a favorite product is no longer available, but hope you can understand that sound business practice dictated the discontinuation of this product. Unfortunately, we are not able to supply you with any last pieces of Davidoff Zino, since production has ceased, all inventory has been depleted, and this product will not be reintroduced.

    Consumer preferences are important to us, and we continually introduce new products as a result of consumer feedback. In this regard, please be assured your comments will be shared with our Marketing Executives for their review and benefit.

    You may be interested to know that many former users of Davidoff Zino are now enjoying Calvin Klein Obsession for Men, available from authorized retailers, including most major Macy’s, Dillard’s, Boscov’s, Bon Ton, Lord & Taylor, Sephora and ULTA stores.

    We thank you for your patronage, and hope you will continue to select and enjoy our quality products.

    Wishing you a scent-sational day,

    Thanks for this info. It's unfortunate as Zino IMO is a very nice fragrance. Luckily I still have a large full bottle.

    Nice that they gave a reply. That being said, this was a terrible decision by Coty. And I would never wear Obsessesion for Men in place of Zino ( the two are not even close or the CK is not nearly as satisfying).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage), Concentr D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I have three bottles of vintage Zino, one a splash. I consider it a classic. Unfortunately for us the number crunchers seem to rule the corporate fragrance world these days.

    There is so much inventory around... that I think it'll be fairly easy to get a replacement bottle for a good many years (at least of the newer formulation). How much room do you have to stock up? My closet is getting too crowded. I'll be fine paying a few dollars more for another bottle in another 2 years. Zino is very nice, but not so sought after like YSL M7, Basala, and Gucci PH I. IMHO, this is not going to become a costly discontinued fragrance until a good 10+ years later when the last devotees are still scrambling to get at it.

    I am sure you are correct here! This is absolutely not a popular frag among the masses who prefer the fresh-woody or aquatic scents!

    Re-released? I didn't know it had been gone. In my country Egoiste has always been on the perfume-stores shelf.

    Then, as of 2010, they either have a huuuuge stock somewhere with loads of this stuff which noone buys (at least not here as you see it really everywhere as of 2009, even discounted and it seems noone buys it here). This is just not for the modern woody-fresh-aquatic generation, I guess..............

    Recommending cK Obsession as a replacement of Zino?
    Obsession and Zino have as much as common as cats and dogs, the reason of the recommendation is that cK perfumes are also manufactured by Coty, so in suggesting cK Obsession is just pushing a product that needs promotion.
    Maybe the pic of Kate Moss in the Obsession ad is not pushing enough!!!

    Im with you PerfumeCollector. I don't know whats worse, Zino disappearing or Coty recommending Obsession as a replacement. Both terrible news. Obsession is nowhere near close to Zino. Im also discounting the discontinuation of Zino. Not that I think ILikePeeps is wrong, but Ive seen too many false discontinuation notices from companies around here. Its good to be aware of this though just in case.

    Their recommendation implies it as a worthy substitute. But why would they choose that if there was nothing in common with Zino? They might as well have said Chopard Noble Cedar (also made by Coty).

    Their recommendation is actually just saying (surprise!) that 'former users' are now using another product from their range.

    Is a sale tactics to let people talk about it and sale goes up for zino or davidoff. Many celebrities does that to get notice. Same trick?

    Maybe zino user enjoying aventus will get more attention (joking)!

    Obviously it is suggesting Obsession as a substitute. Nothing says the substitute has to smell the same, it just has to perform the same basic task. Riding a bike is a substitute for taking the bus.

    Did they ask former users what they are using now? lol

    Implying that the former users of Davidoff have finished their bottles, are sure this fragrance is not to get anymore (??! it's everywhere!), are questioned about it by Coty people when they came back to those stores to try to get a new bottle of Zino and most of them say after being told that it is not to get anymore: 'I am enjoying Obsession instead now'? (which is also already on the Market since mid 80's and is a total different fragrance as well).

    Also how do they know those people are enjoying Obsession now? They can only know such thing as the customer already is enjoying Obsession for a while, implying that they already knew Zino was discontinued and not to get anywhere because they link this to the fact that Zino is not to get anymore. Or they mean that the customers heard about the discontinuation, then buy Obsession (?!) instead and Coty thinks they are enjoying it??! I don't get it..........

    Does anyone here believe this nonsense crap?

    It is laughable to think that Coty folks 1. know what the hell they are talking about and 2. give a crap about the customer any further than selling them something of their own. They might as well recommend aromatic spirits of ammonia.

    Interesting. In the last dozen years, Egoiste has never been on the Chanel counter in Australia. Though I once came across a sole bottle of it in a clearance bin for A$25, which I dutifully snapped up.

    I have a cheap bottle of Zino I got from Strawberrynet - which is usually a good indication that a scent is about to be discontinued.

    I like Zino, but have to admit that I think that the men's Obsession would be my first choice if I had to pick between them.

    And here I was worried with the reformulated juice. Have plenty of the vintage to last a while. And I have plenty of vintage Obsession too.
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    Baffles me why some people feel the need to contradict. If Coty replies about Zino being discontinued and then states how people are enjoying another fragrance, why would they mention that one in particular rather than "other fragrances we are currently producing". Singling out a specific fragrance suggests to me that it is a supposed to be a substitute. Why would they suggest a substitute of completely different character? That wouldn't make much sense. Anyway, I'm done with the point.

    I'm not going to consider one report the final word. If we start seeing other people funneling other info that supports Zino being discontinued then I'll be more inclined to believe it.

    So it is discontinued... What a bad news... Coty, Coty!!!

    Do you know when it was dicontinued?
    I mean what is the last time of its production? 2013? or 2012 or else?

    Hey, if the fine folks at Coty want to help push up prices for vintage, why should we be angry? LOL.

    Does anyone know when Davidoff changed its logo from cursive letters to simple capital letters?

    I think around 2008 when Davidoff also changed (and reformulated the juice) of Cool Water from cursive to block font.

    Supposedly discontinued for a few years now, yet still available on sites like Amazon in four ounce bottles for under thirty bucks. Either they way over-manufactured this scent and have tons of leftover stock, or they're full of crap.

    I remember a post here in Basenotes in wich one of the members had said that he had sent an e-mail to Davidoff or Coty and asked them about Zino production.
    They had answered that Zino was no longer in production from about 2011-2012.
    So when your bottle batch code indicated 2014 as production date, it seems dubious.

    Could you tell us about longevity and sillage of your Zino? Is it long lasting with good projection?

    Hm. I don't know. Maybe it's considered discontinued or something for the American/NA market or so, but still 'alive' in other places?
