    Default Burberry London Discontinued?

    Is Burberry London discontinued? I see it no longer on Burberry website...they still show women version.
    I just hope it just temporarily offsite...this by far my personal favorite scent from Burberry.

    I don't think so. Don't know where you're located but having just done a search found it at Sephora and Macys so I wouldn't worry just yet!

    It's still being shown as a "classic" on the UK website - I think it's just getting the Kouros-style American pullback from Macy's and the like.

    I went to a Burberry boutique a couple of weeks ago to ask about this. They said that Burberry was bringing their fragrance line in-house, and London wasn't one of the ones they brought in. The Burberry associate suggested I try Macy's or Sephora, who would have existing stock. Sounds discontinued to me. I got it from FragranceNet.

    Sounds plausible to me, very few places carry it nowadays.. It is gone from macys, nowhere to be found on Amazon and Sephora has only the 1.7 bottles. Picked up couple of extra bottles to be safe. In the event these rumors turn out be false I would still probably use em up (or resell)

    Update : Checked official Burberry website and London Men is nowhere to be found. Being phased out it seems. Perhaps they are making room for their newest offering - Brit Rhytm for men.

    I really dislike leather as a note in general, I'm very sensitive with it. Wondering if I should pick up a bottle...kinda thinking about it...but I see leather is a main component. Anyone else not a leather note fan that enjoys London?

    I love London for me it was pretty much the best smelling scent of all time. I think of the rest of the line being pretty derivative...

    I think it is worth checking out while it's still around. London is much more about Tobacco and spices than leather (it's definitely there but not dominant by any means).

    Funny how I was not around as a basenoter when other classics got slashed (envy, GPH1 etc), but this time around - I know what to do

    I'm also not a big fan of strong leather scents in fragrance....but on my skin London is more about the port wine note and spices than anything else. Very unique scent and definitely worth owning IMO!

    I generally dislike leather fragrances as well (except for Cuir Ottoman) and I love Burberry London. You don't really pick up on the leather, in fact I wasn't even aware leather was in it until this post.

    Spicy, a little cumin, coriander, and tobacco, with this awesome cherry note in the opening. It's still maybe my favorite top-note/opening of all time.

    It's worth buying, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the help guys, picking up a bottle right now through thefragrancewholesalers on eBay. Looks like they're going pretty fast. Hope they're legit.

    oh nose, what to do! I probably still have 50ml but is this going to go crazy priced in the next few years. ooooooohhhh what do do (wrings hands)
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    It is not sold on the official Burberry U.S. website. Also, big department stores have only 1.7 bottles for full price of $60.00 (and strictly online). Even Amazon, which usually sells stuff with deep discounts, has it on full price to the penny. And NO ONE sells large bottles (not counting smaller businesses like Perfumania or FragranceNet, you could still find 3.4s there).

    I personally contacted Burberry customer service. They did not comment either way on "whether London for men will be continued or not", a pretty standard response...

    Yeah, it's a great smelling unique fragrance.....with super poor performance. I own a bottle, and discontinued or not, i won't be replacing it when it's gone. Especially if it reaches ridiculous discontinued E-Bay prices. Just not worth it imo. There's so much more i'd rather buy instead.

    I had no idea this was being discontinued. I purchased my 3.4 a few months ago for about $35. Looking back it looks like I should have bought 2.

    I like the scent but don't wear it very often. I have a 100ml bottle and I've only worn it like 3 or 4 times. Don't need any backup bottles on this one.

    Two bottles arrived today.

    Do any of you get a good amount of resemblance to Cartier Déclaration Essence when smelling the Burberry up close at least?

    Maybe it's cumin and/or (some kind of?) cedar note(s)?

    Yeah, that's the cumin note. I find it much stronger in Declaration and Declaration Essence, but it is definitely present in London. Strong cumin notes sometimes put me off, but I like the degree to which it's done in London (not too much, just a light presence).

    Do you think it's particularly strong?

    Probably doesn't seem as strong/dominant compared to Déclaration Essence, but when I smell up close it may be the most noticeable aspect(s) to me.

    You can still easily get Burberry London for $51.50 for 100ml from a well-respected UK on-line seller.
