    I've got so many that I'm selling some of my backup bottles but there are a few I'd like to sample, such as vintage Furyo.

    Update: also forgot What About Adam?, of course Gucci Nobile and Ungaro II among the ones already mentioned on this thread.

    Just two for me- Egoiste cologne concentree / Bois de nuit (I don't even think that one exists though, I swear it's just a myth) and original windsor.

    Strangely, I've smelled vintage tabarome and Patou pour homme and was not horribly impressed with either. It was at a much younger point in my fragrance experience though, so maybe it was the equivalent of Gisele Bundchen walking in my door and me going "ehhhh whatever!"

    There are many in my list, the highest one on the list is Dior Homme Intense, second being Frapin 1270 and the third one being Chergui. Great vintage juices, crap reformulations.

    Got the name wrong, sorry. I ment Bois Noir, which is to say, the original version of Egoiste.

    I have everything I sought, so I therefore no longer have a wish list.

    My adventure into the world of deep vintage wasn't worth it. Lots of rancid bottles out there.

    My favorite discontinued fragrances are

    Cartier L'Essence de Must Pour Homme
    Cartier Must Pour Homme
    Cartier Santos Concentree
    Cartier Santos Eau de Sport
    Gaultier 2
    Gucci No. 3
    Gucci Pour Homme 2003
    Hermes Eau de Cologne

    And while I have great sentimentality for Gucci Nobile, I think it's basically not all that great. Since the bottle and the juice are beautiful, I have them backlit in a display case in my bathroom. It is one of the most beautifully-packaged men's fragrances of all time. Every so often I convince myself that it's ok and I put some on. And I suppose it is ok, but nothing more. It just takes me back to another time in my life, so I'll always keep some around.

    Thanks for being honest! I feel the same way about Pure Malt back when that was the thing to get. What a fiasco on my part to try so hard to get a bottle, only to be so disappointed.
