    Default Pour Monsieur EDT Discontinued

    -
    No surprise since it's been smelling vile for the last few years.


    ___________________________


    " Thank you for your interest in Chanel. We apologize for the delayed response to your email.


    Please know that Pour Monsieur Eau De Toilette has been discontinued. The discontinuation of products is based on the changing needs and purchasing patterns of our customers. We value your comments and have shared them with the appropriate department.


    As an alternative, we recommend Pour Monsieur Eau De Parfum which shares the same heart/core as the Eau De Toilette.


    Pour Monsieur Eau De Parfum Spray offers a fresh, woody Chypre scent that still retains its understated elegance. The composition offers a fresh, citrusy burst of Lavender and Sicilian Lemon that reveals a deep heart with the spicy notes of Nutmeg. A woody trail of Vetiver is enhanced with a touch of Vanilla from Madagascar.


    To view this and explore other Pour Monsieur ancillary products, please kindly follow this link: https://www.chanel.com/us/fragrance/...pour-monsieur/


    As we value your loyalty to Chanel, I would like to provide you with the following complimentary One Business Day Air Shipping code: 03VAMP19 for your next purchase on Chanel.com. You will find the promotional code field on the checkout screen once you select the One Business Day Shipping method. Please note this code is valid until March 31, 2019.


    If you need any additional assistance, please do not hesitate to reply to this email or call us at (800) 550-0005 to speak with a Chanel Customer Care Representative 24/7.


    We appreciate your continued interest in Chanel.

    I like it. It's not my favorite but it's pretty good. Sorry to see it go.

    That's a real shame. The EDP notes breaks down lacks a few critical notes from the EDT like oakmoss.

    Now we get to watch whatever's left floating in the market skyrocket in price, because despite what Chanel may think, this one does have fans.

    It's still quite affordable as well thankfully compared to Egoiste.

    Good thing I still have a full bottle of the vintage which should last me a long while. Chanel seems to be discontinuing all their EDTs. Could be a move to raise prices and fatten up margins under ‘higher concentration /EDP’ pretext.

    People in the US will still pay dumb 200%-400% inflated prices on eBay rather than import from a foreign shop. XD

    Same here.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    As freewheelingvagabond says, it doesn't seem to be discontinued so much as no longer distributed in the US. But then it never has been easy to get hold over there, by all accounts.

    Still listed on the French website and I'd be amazed if it were stopped altogether.

    I also have a bottle from the early 00s which is superb might need to use it less this summer.

    I am sad for what it seems to have turned into rather than it being discontinued.

    Always found it pleasant, but then it disappears far too quickly for my liking.

    I agree with Sam; Chanel would be mad to discontinue this one in Europe alone so I guess the OP's email is referring to the US distribution. The EdP is vile in my opinion, whereas the EdT is really inoffensive and my number 1 interview/office scent.

    I've heard many people say this Duke and would tend to agree. However, give it a chance, overspray at will - on clothes and skin. I find this one never gets cloying no matter how much you put on.

    Chanel Pour Monsieur edt is available at The JFK airport today:

    6A13B661-9F74-4BF5-809E-207E47A5942B.jpg

    It smells ok. Better than my 2008 bottle, and the newer juice is a lighter green.
