    I am curious if there might be a re-release of the original, at some point, too, so you may even get to do a comparison later. There is probably money in a re-release. Not a lot, but significant in the world of celebrity scents, which are well designed to capitalize on fleeting fame.
    I probably got them because nobody knew who he was here all along.. For sure! I'd definitely do that.. as a British person I think Mr Donald Trump is one cool guy.Even though I know nothing of hi politics.. Fist, it started as a novely but I'm glad to have scents by him! Theyll have to re-release now! Ot at leasyt a cck n

    I used to own this, if you mean the one with the microphone like bottle. It was a pleasant peach/citrus like opening, but the dry down was just bad, so I got rid of it. I don't think it's a good value even if if 10 bucks a bottle, where I see it now often. If you value the dry down of your fragrance. If top notes are all you care about, then go for it.

I wouldn't mind giving £30-£40 for a sealed 100ml.. I see it on eBay here and there but by the time I pay for shipping and import fees (which both usually cost more than the actual fragrance) it could work out quite pricey. Like say.. £30 new and sealed from an American eBay seller.. then maybe £25-£30 shipping.. Then import fees and handling charges maybe £20 upwards. It could work out at £80+ ($100+).. Do you guys think it's worth that? Is it a good fragrance? Is there anything out there I've already smelled that it smells like or is it very unique?
    It's kinda hard to find now. I bought a bottle on Ebay from a random person, not a retailer, which I rarely do on Ebay. To me, there are some fragrances similar to it, but not identical. I heard that Estee Lauder, the men's one that looks like the same bottle is supposed to be the same fragrance.. but being as I have never smelled it, and the Lauder one was made in like the 70s.. unless it underwent a complete reformulation, I find it hard to believe that it could be the same juice.

    As for similar fragrances I've come across with my own experience. I would say perhaps Uomo by Zegna has some similarities, with that cucumber/pickle bergamot smell in the opening, although I much prefer the Uomo to "The Fragrance", they do dry down completely different.

    I've got a bottle of Success if you want it.
    I thought about giving it to someone as a gag xmas gift, but he had surgery recently so I don't want to bother him.
    I found Empire on Groupon, but wasn't sure if the seller was legit, and I didn't want to pay shipping costs.
    I'll just wait for Fragx to reduce its price I guess.
    Not really sure if Empire will be worth wearing on a regular basis.

    So I wore this today, and it took me a minute to think where I have smelled this before. It really reminded me of Daddy Yankee for men for some time in the openieng, as well as 212 VIP.. but the dry down was clear, this is exactly the same as 1 Million's opening in the dry down.. which for me is a winner. Not that I am a big fan of 1 Million, I do find it nice, but this literally smells liek 1 Millions opening in its base notes.. which is a winner for me.. because this stuff projects quite strong at over 4 hours in. I'll be wearing it more in the future.

    I would take you up on your offer, if I hadn't just purchased it myself.
    Got the nice leather bag. But the bottle was unsecured and leaked about 10 ml from the nozzle coming lose.
    I also let it dry on my wood shelf and Trump ruined the wood when it dripped onto it. I tried to clean it up but it on spread and made
    the stain worse. The Empire smells nice enough though and has a evening lavender scent.
    Did you open the fragrance and smell it?

    Paris Hilton's women's line is very good, too. I asked a woman in a store what her awesome fragrance was, and it was one of the PH feminines (she didn't remember which).

    I remember smelling a Trump fragrance ages ago, but I don't recall which. I just remembered it smelled cheap, which didn't surprise me at all.

    Based on this Basenotes thread:

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/238020-Cyclamen

    I suspect that the note translates to "detectable cyclamen aldehyde".

    I wonder if anyone over at Perfumania now feels silly or has been fired after destroying Trump's fragrance empire back in mid 2015?

    Walked into one of those local owned version of Perfumania (Perfume something, didn't catch the name) and tried Empire - they actually had some. I walked out shaking my head. This fragrance has absolutely no redeeming qualities to it whatsoever.

    I don't normally turn my nose up to most scents but this one just did absolutely nothing for me. Will not revisit.

    I suspect that "cutting ties" was an artful dodge. Perfumania sold the Trump line continuously after that statement, and still sells them.

    I will bet money that "winding down" meant no NEW Trump fragrances. I suspect that production of the existing ones continues unabated.

    Perhaps Perfumania played a rather cunning game - namely, "cut ties" (presumably next to non-existent) with the various Trump organizations, and then keep ordering the existing fragrances hand over fist from their subsidiary. I have seen no change in availability anywhere - much in contrast to what normally happens with a discontinued scent.

    That's exactly how I discovered they make me sneeze. My wife put some in the bathroom. Science just did its magic after that! I suspect it's just some kind of minor allergy.

    The extremely positive reviews of Empire at the Directory and at Fragrantica made me want to buy a bottle of it.
    But I can't find a bottle of it in Australia, which is most annoying.
