    On a recent thread it appears as if Fahrenheit 32 has been discontinued. At least 2 members from different countries confirmed this. I read that it had been discontinued in a facebook perfume group.

    I have recently heard from a friend in germany that Jean Patou, Joy and "1000" have been discontinued. Supposedly due to raw material costs and falling sales.
    I canot confirm this, but perhaps members can research this claim and report back. Thanks.

    Very sad if true. It's ironic and depressing that the much-maligned P&G was a far better guardian of the brand than the current owners.

    I haven't heard anything here in France, David. But the recent versions are (I'm guessing) so far from the originals that most people will have waved them off some time ago.

    I like the most recent version of Joy (more indoles), but yeah, 1000 and Sublime are unrecognisable.

    Is Annick Goutal Grand Amour discontinued? Only the discounters seem to have it here - the department stores have a page but no stock. I think I read they were shaking up the line?

    I've noticed that everything in the Aramis Gentleman's Collection sells for a good price -except- JHL
    It's also the only one that all mainstream retailers are out of or on backorder for (possibly in vain).
    It shows "In Production" on the basenotes entry, but I've watched it go from $30 to $60 to $99 and now to $130
    So anyone wanting JHL should get it now before it goes into the hundreds and becomes bait for decanter resellers.

    It's weird because 900, Devin, Tuscany, New West, Havana, they're all still reasonable. It's just JHL out of the series that is turning into a Maltese Falcon.

    So,

    I just some info that says CHANEL Allure Homme Edition Blanche has been dropped.

    My whole tale in the Chanuary parent thread; hotlink - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/447...=1#post4271686

    BTW, today the Bloomingdale's website showed no (zero, nada, bupkus) AHEB EdP within 25 miles (im in West LA) and their database is usually close if not right on, so I consider that an empirical correlation of value.

    Yeah, I am watching a recent Gentleman's Collection NIB bottle and it just went from $96USD to $139 on the relist since I looked at it last. I'm happy with my stash but Mssr Crusader is speaking verily unto us, that's for sure.

    I'm sure I've seen that AG are changing the packaging of their scents somewhere, maybe on this forum, in which case they may be running down old stock.

    I did not want to open a new thread so I am asking here: it is normal for the sealed bottles of Gucci Rush to be a little empty? The ones I have seen are not full, none of them. A 100 mls bottle looks like it has 80 mls inside, even if it is sealed. I do not think they evaporated, but rather Gucci chose not to fill the bottles up to the top. What is your opinion on this?

    Thanks!

    Good question, PabelL. I haven't really thought about it much, but this appears to be the case with other Gucci bottles as well - for example, I recently got the new Gucci Guilty Absolute, and the fill level definitely does not come up to the neck of the bottle. Every single picture online I've seen looks like this, so this is how Gucci fills these bottles and how they are sold. I'm pretty sure they are not cheating us out of a few ml - they are too smart to risk major international class action lawsuits if someone decanted a new 100ml bottle to verify the volume and it turned out to be 90ml. I guess it's just the way they fill at least some of the bottles - for reasons I don't know, just that they do not appear to be malicious.

    Yes, that is what I was thinking as well. The bottles are larger than 100 mls, but inside should be 100 mls even if it does not look like that. Anyway, it is an enigma why they choose to market some of the fragrances in that way.

    Does anyone have a definitive answer on Zino?

    I heard people saying they had confirmation it was discontinued maybe 4-5 years ago. But it's still readily available pretty much everywhere and I've a bottle which the batch code is reading June 2017.

    It'll be Unicorn status soon and then only the richies among us will be able to restock. $120-$130 seems to be holding steady for now

    Because Dior has decided to release 8 new fragrances into its exclusive line, it has scrapped the following:

    Eau Noire
    Granville
    Milly-la-Foret
    Mitzah
    Vetiver



    IN addition, Gris Montaigne is renamed Gris Dior.

    It's funny how this thread died because everyone's afraid of scalpers now, so nobody mentions what's being or has been axed to keep availability and price reasonable for as long as possible.

    It's better to let people find out on their own, because sticking a neon sign on something being pulled from production invites the hoarders and flippers to monopolize a scent and take it out of reach faster than it would naturally due to dwindling supply.

    Some of the folks on this very forum subsidize their niche perfume purchases by buying DC'd designers low and selling high. I'm not gonna tell somebody what is right or wrong for them personally, but neither am I gonna help them make the hobby harder to enjoy for me either lol.
