    The discontinued Extraits include:

    Amber

    Lilac
    Lily
    Neroli
    Vetiver

    R.I.P.

    I do see that Neiman Marcus still shows a few of them as available and in stock, so if you were postponing this purchase for a while - this is your last chance to get them while they are still available. Prices on secondary markets will no doubt skyrocket on some of these, very soon. :-(
    Thanks for the warning - just got some.

    Kafkaesque says the discontinued extraits are being heavily discounted on the Roja Dove site:

    Yeah, FIF didn't discount them either. I'm curious to know why Roja is discontinuing them. IMO, they're the best of his lines, has a wide appeal, and safe to wear. I'm also wondering if they'll ever be brought back, similar to what Creed and Mugler have done with their discontinued/vaulted fragrances.

    I have a little inside info as to the reasons "why" and what's going to happen in the future - at least with some of the more popular extraits. I can't spill the beans in public, but let's just say - if you like Vetiver Extrait - GET IT NOW, because in a few months you won't be able to afford the re-release.

    I've said too much already.

    As as I type this, I see the RD sale page is now officially dead - the sale is over.

    Maybe as long as stock lasts. LVMH can discontinue whole lines in one swoop - see Fendi.

    Yes, the website will show it as long as it is available somewhere, even if it is no longer in production. Shalimar Parfum Initial, for example, is still on the website, even though production for it was ceased last year.

    Seriously?! I just sold some. If I'd have known that I'd maybe have kept it.. I wasn't really a huge fan of it anyways..

    Just when I'm here, whats the story with the A*Men Pure line? Are they all gonna be kept on as permanent fixtures?

    I never really had much interest in them until I tried Pure Malt and thought it was amazing..

    Bois de Jasmin claimed that Bvlgari Black had finally met its end about a month ago, but there's been rumours about its demise for at least 6 years now, so it's really impossible to tell. I will say that I've been seeing it less frequently on discounter sites, and with the relaunch of Bvlgari's Eau Parfumée au Thé line, I think this may very well be the end of Bvlgari Black. (For now.)

    This! I'm starting to think it's part of their marketing I've heard this rumour so often. There must be sales spikes every time the discontinuation gets mentioned.

    As the single most reviewed fragrance on Basenotes and certainly the most revered of the Bulgari line, I can't see it going anywhere. I hope not anyway.

    Estee Lauder Azuree seems to be on the way out. A very knowledgable SA in House of Fraser reckoned so - they haven't been able to get stock for a while and it's now gone from their online store. She said they seem to be moving in a Modern Muse and flankers direction. And other stockists are sold out or nearly so.

    That would be a real shame. But hasn't it just been repackaged?

    It has, so it does seem a bit odd. The SA said it doesn't sell though.

    Houbigant Fougere Royale (reformulation). The way it's being discounted so widely on the internet, I suspect it may be discontinued. It's a nice modern fougere, but had nothing to do with classic fougere. And it could have, since Trumpers and Penhaligons are still producing (albeit reformulated) an identifiably classic fougere.

    This is just a query, perhaps a "beware" notice, because I cannot confirm...

    I have noticed on recent travels across Europe that Eden from Cacharel is heavily discounted everywhere and in many cases it's the smalller sizes, 30ml/ 50ml etc.Could this be the gradual clearing of all stocks ?
    Perhaps members could ask at their local Cacharel counters and report back with any news. Thanks.

    I've heard rumblings about Amouage discontinuing Ciel Man (and presumably, Ciel Woman) and it seems to be often discounted or less available in online shops. With all the new releases, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Anyone hear anything concrete from SA's or otherwise?

    I see less and less from Salvador Dali Pour Homme in online shops (save for a few). I wanted to buy it, but it seems I can only find it on eBay.

    I have the vintage version if you are interested, in NIB condition. They are pre barcode, late 80s or early 90s.

    I heard the whole Nahema line was discontinued but I hope that you are right and my information is wrong. It is getting very hard to find and Neiman Marcus/Bergdorf's can no longer order it. If I really like Nahema I would stock up.
