    Question Which fragrances will be in demand in 10 years?

    As the title asks, be they limited editions, reformulated or discontinued, what currently fairly common/easily accessible fragrances that people potentially take for granted today, do you think will be sought after and hard to find in the community in a decades time?

    Just my guess, but I think these will be gone in the not-too-distant future:

    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    Several classics, especially the ones escaping reformulation, will most likely still be in constant, maybe also increasing demand.

    it's time to stock up all perfumes produced before infamous restriction laws (at least before year 2010, even better before year 2000).

    If the restrictions go the way they're intending, Chanel No.5. There'll be vintage editions going on eBay for hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

    I would like to think that the old powerhouse frag thing will come back, but it won't. Women don't like 'em enough.
    So I think we'll be stuck in the realm of unisex, sweet, aquatic, and powdery. Not that they're all bad.
    I like my ADG, 1 Million, etc. But I like VC&A PH and Quorum better.

    PS Fine Cologne still can't believe that can be found at fragrance counters still at retail price. Didn't the stuff come out in 1970

    They will come back. People's tastes change over time, eventually women (or indeed men) will begin to tire of light, aquatic, playful fragrances, and will look towards something more serious. Fragrance trends seem to shift much slower than general fashion trends, but we will witness another change at some point. At least I hope so.

    I can't believe they discontinued that. Best cotton candy perfume to me.

    I think Acqua di Gio Essenza will be discontinued at some point in the future, making it rare.

    Agree. They may well be gone/discontinued, but they will still be very much in demand. This industry never learns !
    Patou Pour Homme should have been re~introduced long ago !!!

    I think a lot of Jean~Claude Ellena creations will still be very much in demand in 10 years. He seems to be able to connect perfectly between old school and contemporary. I think he is a genious.

    I would like to agree with this, but I am starting to get the feeling that we are being dictated to by the fragrance industry, as to what we should/must like. A certain genre of new fragrance is being pushed down our throats ~ with little alternative, ( I speak of the designer houses). I find it depressing and there is very little that appeals to me at the moment.
