    Default Bergamotto Marino....virtually vanished off the face of the earth?!

    Finally decided to pull the trigger on this(at least I thought)hidden and inexpensive gem. It used to be on ebay and amazon for dirt cheap just a couple months ago when I was first looking.(under $20 for 1.7oz-$40 for jumbo 6oz.) Both places don't have any? And fragranceX and FragranceNet are both out of stock also. And the couple of places I tracked down that do have it, are WAY over priced. WTH happened?! Is this stuff all of a sudden in super high demand or went out of production?! (

    Really? I bought mine on eBay a couple of months ago at a good price (a 3.4oz too). Great for hot days. I guess its just out of stock. The waiting game begins... Chin up, though. Its not discontinued until its discontinued. Check back every so often and I'm sure it will pop up.

    I know, I couldn't believe that just in a couple months the supply completely dried up on ebay and other places. Oh well, hopefully by the time summer rolls around it will be back widely available...I'm just glad to hear it wasn't discontinued!

    I got the 6.7oz a couple years ago from fragrancex for around $40. I noticed a few months ago that the price had gone up, now I see the same size on Amazon for $160! Crazy.

    It's like what happened to Royal Nobile by Alexander da Costa.

    Sh*t - this means that the already inflated reputation will achieve legendary status for this sub-par juice.

    I don't think thehighend's post was meant to say it definitely wasn't discontinued, only that he hasn't heard of a discontinuation.
    I can't imagine any discontinuation from Ferre would require a huge announcement. It could very well be gone.

    No big loss.

    I blind bought a cheap bottle in a discount bin in Italy a few months back. I didn't see it anyhwere else there. That doesn't auger well. I was pleasantly surprised with it.

    Once a fragrance is hyped, people eat it up like hotcakes. In this case I can see why. Bergamatto Marino is a nice summer scent. More than likely, it will be out fresh closer to the spring.

    Correct, sir. I just meant we simply just don't know for sure, hence there's no reason to give up hope. Now, if its gone up to $160... Ouch. I am officially accepting offers for my bottle ; )

    There's a dealer (have no experience with this one) offering the large size for $55. I would imagine one would have to call and find out for sure if they actually have it available.

    Let the rip off begin. Still a couple on Ebay UK.

    Personally I didn't care for it, so will not miss it much.

    Where I live, most of the regular stores as well as online retailers (even the ones specialized on reasonably diverse designer and niche, occasionally even vintage/limited edition fragrance ranges) seem to be mostly under-supplied with this particular fragrance.

    I was able to find this for a reasonable price on ebay, still wondering if it's discontinued though. Any news? It's funny how all the haters are coming out now to complain on this when for years this has been getting nothing but compliments lol.

    Got a 200ml 1.5 years ago for only €25 and I am very happy with it as it performs way better on me than (the somewhat similar) Mugler Cologne.
    Still 180ml left!

    You can still get it here in NL online for €42 / 200ml!

    I got mine on ebay, shipped from Italy, 200ml for 40. Didn't seem too bad a deal to me!

    I guess my biggest concern was that if I get it and love it I don't want it to disappear shortly after.

    It disappears as soon as you spray it, irrespective of whether you like it or not.

    It depends on your skin.
    It lasts a good 8 to 9 hours on mine.
    Close to the skin, but it's definitely there.

    It's a great scent - excellent for hot summer weather.
    I'm so glad I jumped on it when it was plentiful and very cheap.
    My only regret - I didn't buy a larger bottle.

    Then again, with the size of my collection, I doubt I will get through my 50 ml bottle.
    I've barely put a dent in it...
