    This is a great idea for a thread. I'm really glad to see it.

    I completely, wholeheartedly agree with the poster who said that if you love a fragrance, if you have found that thing that you love, and you know you love, and it makes you happy--- GET IT. Buy it. Don't assume it will be there tomorrow. I made that mistake with Chanel No. 19. I am still in a state of shock that any company would reformulate that perfect fragrance… Such blasphemy.

    This is difficult. I have 50 plus fragrances that I really cherish. I cannot financially afford backups for all these fragrances just because maybe , one day they will be discontinued. This is not realistic. This is why I like the idea of some sort of warning signal.....however vague it may be.
    I cannot buy everything wholesale for fear that it may one day be discontinued.....

    I saw Royal Oud on Amazon Sunday night for $127 with free shipping. I almost bought one for a back up, but I got sidetracked before completing the purchase. I noticed the open browser window Monday morning, but the price had gone up to $181. Ah well. Prices for it seem to bounce all over the place... up, down, up, down. Still, it's easily available from discounters. It's on amazon now, from a different seller, for around $140.

    I have purchased from them without any problems. I'd just call prior to placing the order just to make sure that they really have it available and ready to ship.

    At $124, shipped, I can't resist. It's just a backup bottle, so I don't care if it takes a while to ship (though the confirmation email says I'mm receive it in 3 to 4 days)

    Thanks Hednic!!!

    Wowza. My Royal Oud just showed up in the mail. I wasn't expecting it to arrive for at least a week or two, but it's already here (and it smells faaaaaantastic! Granted, I already knew that since this is for a backup bottle, but I couldn't resist checking it.

    Talk about fast shipping. Lilydirect rocks!

    I visited the dior store and inquired about the vetiver.... They are discontinuing it unfortunately. In my opinion it's my favourite vetiver so grab it before its gone

    Lilydirect is a great find. If you're smelling real Royal Oud, then I'm sold on the idea that they're dealing the real McCoy. At around $125, that's not bad. VIW, too. And they have DHI and quite a few other gems. A*Men Pure Leather for $40. Nice!

    Does anybody have definitive word on Dior Addict EDP in the dark blue bottles? I understand that it has undergone multiple packaging changes, and that right now it is getting seriously reformulated for the version out in stores this year. I know that the versions without the gold band are the oldest, but I'm wondering if there is any more detail than that. I want to get a bottle of the oldest version I can, a.s.a.p.

    Red, this is the oldest Dior Addict. I just got it at Sephora, JCPenny. The box is shiny silver/blue.

    That is definitely the good stuff!

    My wife has a bottle from 2002 - we bought it during the initial launch, in a gift set! But it's half-gone, and I was shocked to hear that it's being noticeably reformulated.

    I like the new bottles and the new packaging - I hope the second edition is as great as the first. But it will never actually BE the first edition. I'm betting it has been adjusted to smell more current - maybe fruitier.

    I am going to go out and sniff this one today, and see for myself just how much it has been modernized.....

    Maybe this one has already been mentioned here - if so, apologies.
    Must pour Homme - Cartier, was discontinued last year. Last remaining stocks are starting to go up in price. One website is now charging £205 for the 100ml spray bottle. Several other classic Cartier fragrances have also been axed. Check with Cartier boutiques in your country for details and remaining stocks.

    I have read in several places that amouage has discontinued their entire attar line. You can not order them from Amouage website anymore as it appear. I am not sure if they are being completely discontinued or only discontinued in western markets as some others have been saying they are still going to be produced for the middle east.

    Anybody can shed some light on this?

    There was a rumour that they were being discontinued totally - it would be nice if anyone near to the factory could comment please?

    I had an ah-ha moment when answering a thread in the men's section about Azzaro Pour Homme Elixir...

    I've noticed that Azzaro seems to be on the cusp of a major re-branding, having "cleaned up" their displays (keeping exclusively Azzaro Pour Homme and Chrome *including flankers*) over the last few months.

    Silver Black/Onyx, L'Eau, Elixir, Night Time, Decibel & Twin ~ have all but dissapeared, or been relegated to the discount bins which usually amounts to limited distribution and eventual imminent discontuation.

    So if any of the fragrances that I have mentioned above are of interest, I would suggest you seek them out sooner than later.

    Iroaz by Lostmarc'h has been discontinued. A representative told me that they hope it was only
    temporarily, but they don't know. I just bought a back-up bottle, which was already hard to find.

    Does anyone know if Esperys by E. Coudray has been discontinued?

    Iroaz luckily is still available in the US at Beauty Habit - http://www.beautyhabit.com/lostmarch_iroaz.html

    Unfortunately Esperys by E. Coudray has been discontinued for a while but sometimes a bottle pops up on Ebay.

    Thank you for this fast answer!

    My IROAZ back-up will arrive today.

    ESPERYS I received yesterday, looks like I bought the last bottle around. It smells like the old Leichner theatre make-up I know from my childhood. That's the rose in it. I like it so far and will give it a full wearing today. Thanks for this recommendation!

    JdB - no concern for me if the EDP is OK. L'Instant Magic might be worth chasing down. Was not a fan of GH L'Eau, so no loss for me. SPI L'Eau - never sniffed it, but I love the regular, so as long as SPI stays, I'm OK. Idylle flanker - no problem.

    Vega and Soul le Vent? Now THOSE are biggies. OUCH.

    Yup - finally, after 3+ years of rumours Sous le Vent is 100% officially discontinued (along with Vega). We all saw it coming and I have 'laid down'a few bottles of SlV but it is unfortunate to see it go - some of us were still hoping this line might grow but after a few years of no more 'classics' being brought back to keep Vega & SlV company it was apparent the concept had stalled. Maybe with all these authentic recreations being done (for the Osmotheque, presumably) by T. Wasser and his new sidekick we still may see some sort of private semi-bespoke option for ordering stuff that gives the EU regulators the finger but my guess is that a Bee of whatever 'as originally created' will not come cheap.

    It was nice to see Ulrik reporting from the Guerlain invitation only thing where bloggers were all presented with minis of classic discontinued and current perfumes done as they were originally made - I would have flown to Paris for that one! One friend who used to frequent Basenotes back in 'the good ole days' (and who shall remain nameless) received a gift of a bottle of Cuir de Russie remade 'as it was' from Guerlain not too long ago . . . we live in hope that Guerlain's largesse may bloom

    Now THAT is cool!!!

    Hope to see some reviews - and maybe even some side-by-side comparisons between the newer "Hello Kitty" versions and the grand old tigresses!

    Its a shame. I just found out about Fahrenheit Absolute because I saw it on sale, and here it's being phased out. I tried it today, thinking it would be a monster, but it didn't strike me as being very strong. Maybe I'll pick it up anyways. I'm also thinking of buying Fahrenheit Summer, although I really don't know if it's been discontinued.
