    Default Found a bottle of gucci envy 50ml today

    Is this rare? I found it in a tiny perfume shop.
    I'm pretty sure it's not in production anymore.
    It's the lighter green color.
    Smells quite nice!
    Wonder why they stopped making it if it was selling so well.
    Don't know if i should keep it or sell it.

    If you like it, maybe keep it. It is d/c. I keep mine for nostalgia. It smells just like a 1980's discotheque to me.

    Yes it is rare and getting harder to find at an affordable price. Buy it and if you do not like it, you can sell it on ebay or here

    Discontinued, and hard to find. One of the Gucci's I own and like. Agree with others. If you like the scent and how it performs on your skin, then keep it. You can always sell it if you get tired of it.

    Thanks for the replies. I paid 45 euros for it.

    That's about 60 American, great price. You could easily sell it for 100-150 American, I've seen the 3.4 oz bottles going for over 200 on Ebay. I would keep it though, as it's a part of fragrance history, and it smells amazing.

    Great find indeed. Also, truly agreeing with the opinion that this fragrance should not be discontinued and/or brought back into production/retail.

    Congrats! Great scent - I have scoured around and bought what I could find in my neck of the woods. Never got as good a deal as you did though!

    Ebay is a good place to look. I managed to find a 50ml bottle in box for £25 which is about $40. The woman was having a clear out and wanted rid so had it as a buy it now. Was worried it may have been a fake but it was not.

    Good fragrance.
    It was dc'd because it was NOT selling well. No one cared about it until it was unavailable.
    You can probably make $100 by selling it. Wait 5 years and make $200.

    I don't know how well it sold. The main reason for discontinuation was because it contained too much of an IFRA restricted ingredient called nutmeg, and they couldn't make a decent version of the fragrance without using a similar amount of it.

    Great fragrance, btw.

    Read about it somewhere. Cacharel Nemo was discontinued for the same reason. I'm sure there were others.

    Great find! If you like it, keep it, because you probably won't find it again.

    Very strange bottle!!!

    I had a original bottle of this it's a dark green liquid. Unfortunately after purchasing it from a pharmacy a couple years ago I gave it away cause I did not like the scent....AAAARGH! On last year I realised what a mistake I made. The d/c fragrance I own now is Providence by Van Huesen. And yeah it smells amazing!

    Just close your eyes and picture all of the people you know that have been harmed by nutmeg overdose over the last 30 years.....

    Where do I send the letter to IFRA thanking them for keeping my family safe? Ive already dropped off my bottles of Envy at the hazardous chemical recycling center.

    I hope you were wearing your HazMat suit at the time! You can't be too careful!

    Was the fuss over nutmeg because of it's rarity or was nutmeg considered an allergen by the ifra?? I don't get it.

    Guys please try to take IFRA a little more seriously, they are protecting the best interest and welfare of people. Do you have any idea what Nutmeg does to a person when you breathe it in and it comes into contact with your lungs? Oh wait, no that's asbestos.........carry on.

    Nutmeg banned! Really? I love the nutmeg and mace in Santa Maria Novella's Marasciella - even more reason to apply it with caution. Its a beast of nutmeg aroma. I've read somewhere that nutmeg oil has hallucinogenic properties, which might be why it was under review. I didn't realize it is restricted or banned. Of course this is a ridiculous action if it's true.

    Hallucinogenic? Hot dog! It's time we started snorting this stuff while we still can! No wonder 'Envy' sends me tripping back to 1986. Every time I wear it, I think I'm standing in Bloomingdales at the make-up counter.

    Why does envy remind you of the 80's so much??
    It was released in 1998..

    That's funny, I hadn't realized. I will have to readjust my personal time clock. It reminds me of that time when women wore shoulder pads.

    Please, don't ask me why, but I got a 100ml tester with top and tester box for quite cheap but I just don't like it, and I do enjoy barbershop scents a lot. There's something that doesn't agree with my nose, ginger, perhaps, although I like it in L'Homme, for exemple. I would be most keen on a swap in Brasil. Any one, please? ... I mean... the man's version.
