    Default Is Envy for men by Gucci still in production?

    I can't find it anywhere. I remember it was discontinued many years ago.

    Discontinued unfortunately as you say and no longer in production. Bottles do appear on ebay etc

    Try 'Santal' by Floris instead!

    I will. What made me remember Envy is actually the woody creations by Alessandro of Nasomatto and Orto Parisi.

    This would be your best bet if you're set on this one.

    Alas no Envy for men anymore. An excellent fragrance, one of rare that really strikes a chord.

    You may want to try Carven Homme from 1999; (not "pour Homme" from 2014).

    Seconding especially this recommendation, if wishing to find a nice substitute for Envy

    It's good, but not this good!

    I agree that Floris Satal and Carven Homme (1999) are quite close.

    Quite a good clone and a very cheap one! You should at least try it!

    Agree that Carven Homme 1999 is a nice stand in. Another that falls in line somewhat between Gucci Envy and Gucci Rush is Pal Zileri Sartoriale 2005.

    A super-cheap sandalwood in a similar vein is Kanon Norwegian Wood.

    This one is a unicorn, like most discontinued Gucci masculines (besides the first, which is still spendy but more achievable), so unless you are die hard to relive this, better off leaving it to the deep-pocketed buzzards circling that boneyard. You can get brand new Creed from discounters for less, which is hilarious,

    Yes Carven Homme is a suitable replacement if you can find a good price. The prices seem to go up and down with this one. The major drawback, to my nose is that the Carven has less, if any incense.

    I’m not big on the whole layering fragrances thing, but a shot of Floris Santal layered with a shot of Carven Homme is very very close to Envy on my skin.

    I used to own a bottle of Envy but I gave it to my brother in law a few years ago because I hardly wore it. I’m not sure that was a good decision!

    My bottle of L’Occitane’s Eau de Vetyver smells very much like how I remember Envy was, just lighter. Unfortunately, Eau de Vetyver was discontinued last year

    Carven Homme alone to me doesn't smell like Gucci Envy. Perhaps add some ginger, green tinge to the dry down and some incense...and hopefully that would come close.

    Crazy how many good fragrances Gucci once had.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    More HERE
    Please PM me !

    If you want it then I’d just pay the asking price for a bottle online

    While the Carven bears a slight resemblance it’s really not the same experience, it lacks the freshness and overall beauty of Envy. I didn’t find Floris or any other compared fragrance to come close. Thankfully I have enough backups to last a lifetime

    I'm a little surprised one of the more prominent clone houses hasn't had a go at Envy.

    Alexandria Fragrances did Invidia as an Envy clone, but it’s not even close.

    I find Carven Homme and Envy clone from Dollar shop (EAD I think is the company) to b a good enough substitute. Carven is better fragrance but the clone is closer to Envy.
    I would recommend you buy the clone first. Just a buck so no downside. I am just surprised how can they sell 100 ml juice in a glass bottle with a decent sprayer for a dollar and make a profit.

    It might be a "loss leader", or an item the store charges equal to or less than what they paid, as an attractive item that encourages other purchases. That is how Walmart sold some of it's luxury items and electronics (jewelry/fragrance/TVs especially). I imagine that might be the same here. Pay a dollar for 1 or 2 things that cost $1.50 for the vendor to order, but fill your cart with other dollar items that cost pennies buy.

    They should bring it back, it goes well with the retro feel the house has now
