Gucci Pour Homme I.
If you could find any discontinued fragrance, which would you go for?
Gucci Pour Homme I.
Inoui by Shiseido.

Bring Chypre back!

Vintage Vent Vert.
Wow - everyone is so decisive! Well, I hope you don't mind but I have several in my #1 spot.
L'Arte di Gucci
the original Calvin Klein for Women
...and that's just a small sampling among many more I'd love to see brought back in their former glory.
But I have all these plus back-ups, so that more than answers your title question, but considering I don't have a bottle of the original Charles of the Ritz, I'd probably go for that one if I ever ran across it. However, although I covet it the most at the moment, it's never been my #1 favorite ...your question isn't quite as simple and straight-forward as it seems, lol.
And while thy breeze floats o'er thee, matchless flower, I breathe thy perfume, delicate and strong,
That comes like incense from thy petal-bower; My fancy roams those southern woods along...
Christopher Pearse Cranch - Magnolia Grandiflora, 1875
Fufu, nice to see you back.
Inoui too. Plus CD Diorella (I have kept looking for the "right" one for several years now!)
Houbigant Fougere Royale
Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. O.Wilde
I'd probably find it too juvenile to actually wear today, but I still long for Calyx as it was originally created by Prescriptives. Ahh the 80's....
Givenchy III. I'm seriously in love with it, even more than with Gucci No3 and KL.
'I suggest we learn to love ourselves before it's made illegal.'
If I had cojones, I'd give up the left one for some more Shalimar Light.
Vintage Bandit and Vintage Habanita.
I tried it today.
Very nice but not up to the cult status IMO.
It's a very safe perfume. Very good but safe at the same time.
It's almost 180• of everything he did after it.
Reminded me a bit of phileas but swap the lemon and herbs for rose and moss.
I went for, and got, Mollie Parnis. Five years of daily ebay lurking.
What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!
Djedi...can't quite bring myself to plunk down the $$$$ for a teeny, tiny sample so I can sniff.
Lucien Lelong Indiscret the perfume when it was originally made.
Strangely enough I would give my right arm to sniff Aqua
Manda by Goya again - just for the memories.
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Shalimar and L'Heure Bleue from the 60's. Lanvin's Rumeur also 60.s. Tuvache's Jungle Gardenia and Sumatra and Nectaroma. Mary Chess Yram, Monteil's Royal Secret, Emir by Dana, Fame by Corday, all the original formulas. My HG, Secret de Venus de Zibelene. Deep sigh..................
Eau de Patou from the 70s. The one that many people identify as the more masculine one.
This might sound really plebeian, but I'd like to smell Occur! by Avon again. Je Reviens is not discontinued, but I'd like to smell the EDP from the 1960's (it would remind me of my mother).
Fendi pure perfume, I have the EDT and it's a piece of work
Organza Indecence, not the new formula, but the one from the good old 90`s.
I know it's been re-released, but I loved the original Venezia.
KL is another that I miss.
The original Narcisse Noir. And then I want to sample Nombre Noir.
Looking for THE femme fatale scent. If you think there is something I should smell please PM me!
ENVY. Also Jil Sander Woman II and Halston.
Oscar Tropical by Oscar de la Renta. Not fancy, not exciting, but a memory.
Madeleine de Madeleine, in the weakest concentration. It came in a tall rectangular glass bottle, and I wore it throughout college.
Would also like to know what Demon by Raphael was like -- my tiny bottle from an ebay lot is quite age-burnt.
I used to wear Charles of the Ritz back in the day.
One of my all time favourites back then was the original Femme by Rochas, and Hermes by Hermes
- Must II de Cartier
- the original version of Arpege Lanvin
- the original version of Hypnotic Poison Dior
If I could have anything I would like;
Fougere Royal from the classics.
A good quality bottle of my first fragrance, Helena Rubinstein Heaven Sent.
The original Fendi.
The original Armani for women.
and a little sniff of Coty Chypre.
Caron's Tabac Blond! It still is in production, but not the original formulation. I want the original.
