Patou Pour Homme Prive.
If you could find them, which men's frags which are rare or discontinued would you buy?
Patou Pour Homme Prive.
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
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.

We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
Way up high on my priorities list, if ever available again: Joint by Roccobarocoo and Spazio Krizia by Krizia.
Update: also forgot What About Adam?, of course Gucci Nobile and Ungaro II among the ones already mentioned on this thread.

Gucci Pour Homme and Creed Windsor.
Aramis Tuscany per Uomo
Escada Casual Friday
"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"...I don't want to miss that...
Current Top 12 Winter: | T.Mugler A*Men TOF | Davidoff Zino | Escada Magnetism | V&R Antidote | T.Mugler A*Men PureMalt | Hermes Rocabar | Prada Amber Intense | Versace Man | Reminiscence Noir | Donna Karan DK Fuel | Kenzo Jungle | Valentino V Homme |
Boss Number One (1985)
Hermes Rocabar (just a sample)
Trussardi Uomo (80's version)
"Le parfum est la musique du corps"
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Tuscany per Uomo Forte
Courréges Pour Homme
Vintage Obsession for Men (significantly different than the juice on shelves now) has been on my To Buy list for a while now.
"The plant that you have in your home - have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call a plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant's emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher."
-- Eckhart Tolle
Far too many to list.
Guerlain Heritage (EDT or EDP)
Ungaro 1-3 (though I have never tried either)
Bois Du Portugal
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!"
Patou pour Homme
Chanel pour Monsieur
Mouchoir de Monsieur
i wouldn't mind backups of Envy and Nobile

Derby lovers might like this I just spotted:
Route du vetiver
Kouros Eau du Sport
Patou pour Homme
Derrick - Orlane
Ted Lapidus pour Homme (1978)
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Chaps Ralph Lauren
Fahreneheit (first formulation)
My Current Top 10:
Rive Gauche Light (2004)
Paul Smith Man (2009)
Burberry London (2006)
Prada Amber pour Homme (2006)
Live Jazz (1998)
Eau des Baux (2006)
Midnight in Paris EDP (2010)
Arpege pour Homme (2005)
Eau Duelle (2010)
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.
Vintage Givenchy Gentleman
Carven Vetiver (1957)
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
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.

Patou PH is # 1 on that list of mine which is growing by the second...
I'd also add Tiffany for men.
I'd like to find a nice bottle of vintage Old Spice. Egoiste Concentree would be fun. Vintage YSL Pour Homme, just for the memories.
Vintage Chanel Pour Monsieur. I have the reformulation, and it's just ok.
