    Default Vendetta pour Homme by Valentino

    I would like to know when was this scent discontinued? I've still seen it selling at different prices (from high to acceptable) on ebay,amazon and other sites , but reading the reviews from BN ,I'm not convinced to buy a bottle blind. Is it a must scent for a collector of discontinued fragrances? Is there a designer scent similar to Vendetta pour Homme by Valentino which can be tried in stores like Sephora, Douglas , Marionnaud?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not a "must", IMO, but a very fine addition regardless (especially if you find it at a reasonable price).

    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Love it, an excellent herbal Italian-style scent.

    Are you sure it was Vendetta pour Homme you sniffed with your sample? I don't find much in common with Ocean Rain (which I also love for different reasons) at all. I find Vendetta more of a refined clove laced Z-14 earlier, then changing over to a very natural cedar and subtle oakmoss late. I also get no powerhouse qualities as this one to my nose is no projector...

    I have to agree with the comment, although I thought it radiated decently ? Ocean Rain has this damp kind aspect to it, I just don't get that with Vendetta which has alot of clove and is more woodsy and mossy as well. I think the comparision to Z-14 is quite apt and didn't realize this before !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Thanks in advance!

    IMHO .. yes & yes !
    like the classic vintage Z-14 with to my nose
    with stronger orange/citric accord & incense percolating deeper in the mix .

    Quality fragrance , that will sadly one day vanish completely
    Get a bottle if you can .

    Vendetta is a nice incense fragrance. Powerhouse? Maybe? I've only worn it once or twice, so I can't really remember.
