    Default Valentino Uomo Intense Discontinued?

    Hello Basenote friends,

    Just had a quick look for valentino uomo intense here in the UK. I canít find it on any of the high street retail shops websites anymore - appears to be out of stock everywhere. Thereís only a few bottles available on some other reseller websites such as fragranceX. Does any know if itís been discontinued?

    The whole Valentino line is discontinued, they are selling remains.

    I prefer going in store and sampling the fragrances prior to purchase. From the scarcity in high street retailers it appears it is on the way out.

    Wow. That is news. They are fantastic scents for those that like the DHI formula with a modernized twist and well worth a sniff as I've enjoyed them since they were first released. I'd rank them:

    Valentino Uomo Intense
    Valentino Uomo Acqua
    Valentino Uomo
    Valentino Uomo Noir Absolu

    Might have to add em to the splits so people can dive in before the inevitable price hike. Thanks for the info.

    What a shame. I haven't tried the whole line, but what I've tried, I liked.

    Where is there any actual evidence that it is being discontinued?

    The entire line is still available on the Valentino website.

    Good riddance. It's the most uninspired in the line.

    Uomo and Uomo Aqua on the other hand are quite good. If true, it's unfortunate that they've been cut.

    Probably just another ‘fake news’.

    Valentino has rebooted their fragrance house so many times by now that nobody expects their fragrances to stay on the market anymore (similar case as Gucci), so it's no wonder arbitrage guys/flippers almost want this line dead so they can make a fast buck off it, since literally every other past masculine from this house has either become a unicorn or is on it's way to being.

    tl;dr: When a designer brand constantly has an olfactory identity crisis, the grey market looks to them first for the next meal ticket. Sad.

    In any case, the Uomo line is derivative and not super essential, so I wouldn't be surprised, but I also don't see this happening because the stuff is everywhere in US department stores, and they're notorious for being the first to flush stock that underperforms. I'd say this is just somebody stirring the pot.
    oh look, I have a signature
