    Default Davidoff Zino/Zino Davidoff discontinued.

    In case anyone is wondering about the status of the frag, here's a response I've received via e-mail:



    "Hi Robert,

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate hearing from you, and welcome the opportunity to address your concern.

    Based upon nationwide market trends and purchasing patterns, the decision was made to discontinue Davidoff Zino. We realize it is disappointing when a favorite product is no longer available, but hope you can understand that sound business practice dictated the discontinuation of this product. Unfortunately, we are not able to supply you with any last pieces of Davidoff Zino, since production has ceased, all inventory has been depleted, and this product will not be reintroduced.

    Consumer preferences are important to us, and we continually introduce new products as a result of consumer feedback. In this regard, please be assured your comments will be shared with our Marketing Executives for their review and benefit.

    You may be interested to know that many former users of Davidoff Zino are now enjoying Calvin Klein Obsession for Men, available from authorized retailers, including most major Macy’s, Dillard’s, Boscov’s, Bon Ton, Lord & Taylor, Sephora and ULTA stores.

    We thank you for your patronage, and hope you will continue to select and enjoy our quality products.

    Wishing you a scent-sational day,

    Thanks for this info. It's unfortunate as Zino IMO is a very nice fragrance. Luckily I still have a large full bottle.

    Nice that they gave a reply. That being said, this was a terrible decision by Coty. And I would never wear Obsessesion for Men in place of Zino ( the two are not even close or the CK is not nearly as satisfying).
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Easy to get here (and Germany/Belgium) already for years, still is and will be as noone buys this stuff here.
    I own a 125ml of vintage (the way better script font 'Davidoff' bottle) and current formulation (block font 'DAVIDOFF') and I am set for many many years.
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme/Solo
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Revillon R
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Acqua di Parma: Colonia Intensa /Leather/Oud
    - Knize Ten
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Aqua Fahrenheit

    I have three bottles of vintage Zino, one a splash. I consider it a classic. Unfortunately for us the number crunchers seem to rule the corporate fragrance world these days.

    Nice One!

    Time to box mine up until the internet clamour for it goes into melt-down and then stick it on eBay for a couple of hundred quid.

    Fingers crossed that Oscar Pour Lui and Boss Number One go the same way!

    There is so much inventory around... that I think it'll be fairly easy to get a replacement bottle for a good many years (at least of the newer formulation). How much room do you have to stock up? My closet is getting too crowded. I'll be fine paying a few dollars more for another bottle in another 2 years. Zino is very nice, but not so sought after like YSL M7, Basala, and Gucci PH I. IMHO, this is not going to become a costly discontinued fragrance until a good 10+ years later when the last devotees are still scrambling to get at it.

    I am sure you are correct here! This is absolutely not a popular frag among the masses who prefer the fresh-woody or aquatic scents!

    Egoiste has only just been re-released, and I'm guessing Antaeus is still selling well with over 40s.

    Re-released? I didn't know it had been gone. In my country Egoiste has always been on the perfume-stores shelf.

    Then, as of 2010, they either have a huuuuge stock somewhere with loads of this stuff which noone buys (at least not here as you see it really everywhere as of 2009, even discounted and it seems noone buys it here). This is just not for the modern woody-fresh-aquatic generation, I guess..............

    You can still find this online at good prices. I find it similar in a way to Chanel Coromandel.

    Recommending cK Obsession as a replacement of Zino?
    Obsession and Zino have as much as common as cats and dogs, the reason of the recommendation is that cK perfumes are also manufactured by Coty, so in suggesting cK Obsession is just pushing a product that needs promotion.
    Maybe the pic of Kate Moss in the Obsession ad is not pushing enough!!!
