    Grant, thank you for this very interesting and well written article. A lot of work and much research went into this I know. Kudos for a job well done.

    Great list. I'd also add Gucci Envy (don't Gucci have a terrible habit for discontinuing great fragrances?) and Shiseido Nombre Noir.

    Gucci Envy was still for sale on the Gucci website when I started writing this – it's now no longer on there.

    I think Nombre Noir would probably be No.1 if it had more ratings – I set the limit at 100 ratings and Nombre Noir had about 40

    Great article! I am a male who had bought Theorema for Christmas presents for various women. Totally agree with Fendi Theorema as first on the list.

    Ahh, that's fair enough then. I think they're taking Rush off the market too, I've seen it on sale at a number of stores in the last few days.

    What an enjoyable article, Grant! And how many lost gems!!! If I could, I'd just add "By" woman by Dolce&Gabbana (a fruity marvel), I can imagine maybe it didn't scored 100...

    I would add Aquawoman by Rochas - it was such a great summer scent, it was an aquatic but not your typical one, so well done and beautiful, really don't understand why they do such things with great frags.
    And Mira Bai by Chopard, it can still be found in some online stores, I really loved this one.

    Another fun, suspenseful read. Kept waiting for Diorella to show up - but I guess it's still in production, though by some accounts not the same as the original. Very happy to see Angelique Encens on the list. It's a stunning beauty. Please please Creed, bring it back.

    I am not surprised by many on this list, but I am really surprised that the classic womens Armani, (black flacon - Pan-Am building shape) was not on the list...and somewhere toward the top, rather than the botom. It goes for huge prices on the net and women seem to crave it. Likewise, Joop!'s Nuit d'Ete.

    Maximum respect for Theorema, I find it unisex btw.

    The article was A+, but the real question is: who's that girl? She's a cutie!

    Ahhhh Theorema, the name alone evokes intelligence and balance and that's before we open the bottle and marvel at the scent on all levels... I love that it's getting continued respect from all of Us, and it could be thought as a perfect scent if there were such a list, and it would still place top5.
    A take that came to me is that it is a part of something more...the complement (s) ? a place, your skin(the wearer), a smile...

    About the list it would be interesting to make a list of very old discontinued scents but i guess they are never that popular because of it limited availability

    I totally agree with Le Dix, but for me the saddest loss was Balenciaga's Quadrille. I have a tiny bottle hidden that i just take out and sniff once in a while. it will never be replaced. So sadddd..... and yes, thank god for florabotanica!

    I did love Sensi and I still have Myrrhe Ardente. Theorama, even the uttering of the name, is a dirge, a lament, a refrain. Le Dix was a great loss. Covet almost made it huh?
    That's interesting. My husband misses Acteur by Azzaro, his most complimented perfume, although the ladies at the post shop always ask him to wear Terre DHermes.

    That was an enjoyable read, thanks Grant. Reminded me of an entire Sunday afternoon trying to source a bottle of Le Dix for an old family friend...never did find the bastard!

    Love those Fendis! Thank you for just making them that bit more expensive.

    Just got rid of a 100ml McQueen (from the launch.) It was so unlike anything else. Cumin really was dominant (in a sweaty way.)

    From reading this it seems quite clear that LVMH is Satan.
