    Default Chanel Pour Monsieur EDP USA Site Backordered/Now Sold Out

    Anyone know if this is a cause for concern, it’s been over a month since backordered was displayed now it shows sold out. Hopefully this isn’t a sign of discontinuation of the EDP now, could there really be a supply issue or shortage for a Chanel fragrance?

    I have wrote Chanel via email and will update with the response I receive. This is such a great fragrance I hope this is not going away anytime soon.

    I'll never understand the stock/inventory issue of certain fragrances Stateside. This is one of them.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    I believe they pulled both the edt & edp from the American market.

    I'm interested in their response. I couldn't find any online official retailers in the US with remaining stock either.

    Well, I'm not sure what it means exactly but on Chanel's French site I get "Avis de Disponibilite" and on the Canadian site I can click add to cart but get the notice "There is insufficient quantity available of this product to add it to your bag" so I'd say it's out of stock everywhere.

    Chanel SA told me they pulled them from American market.

    Could just be temporary? Maybe they’re reformulating them?

    They pulled EDT earlier. This might be next. Makes sense. This is too good of a fragrance to not be discontinued.

    Possible? The EdP does list oakmoss in the ingredients list...

    I'm set on the EdT, which is my preferred format, but I do have an old EdTC I wanted to replace, but if this whole line "Unicorn's the @#$% out", then I'll have to switch to remaining replenishable examples of this genre like my recently-acquired Lalique PH EdP. Nobody wants to smell classy anymore

    I better slowdown on both of them. EDT is almost done, and I have lots of the EDP. To me they are different fragrances and both amazing.

    I saw Pour Monsieur in the duty free at San Diego International last week. I want to say it was EdP, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Let’s hope Egoiste and Antaeus don’t suffer the same fate, ridiculous to even think about these classics getting taken out of certain countries!

    The Ebay vultures are charging $140'ish dollar range for the EDP right now. Figures. I'm nearing the end of my bottle, about 3/4ths of an ounce remaining. No warning at all from Chanel about this.

    Yes, the Duty Free shops will be worth a look. Especially since many of them will allow you to purchase fragrances while flying domestic.

    Chanel seems to actually pull fragrances from retailers when they reform or discontinue them. Awhile back shortly after the switch from EDT to EDP on the exclusives I was trying to find older stock of Sycamore and was told by a SA at the Chanel Boutique and the SA at Neimans that they had sent anything that was remaining back.

    Same response I received, does not sound promising and is a real let down from Chanel. It’s one of their many greats and to see it get axed is a real lose to the Chanel collection.

    And they read threads just like this, plus probably make some of them to stir the frenzy too (but not this one cuz Speckmann is good people), so I tend to keep mum about if or when things are discontinued so I don't play into their hands.

    Chanel is making a big mistake here. It's really upsetting. I love Pour Monsieur EDP. Right when I was about to buy a replacement/backup since I'm down to less than an ounce. I guess I really do 'care' about fragrance when I get upset that one I really enjoy is up-in-the-air. I'm super disappointed in Chanel. They need to get this back on the shelf. And I'm also worried that if it does hit the shelf again it will likely be a heavily reformulated version. I hope if it comes back that it's not ruined with any reform.

    For those looking for inexpensive bottles of Pour Monsieur another good place to look are stores like Fragrance Outlet that you see at many factory outlet malls.

    I generally don't shop at these places as I find them to be overpriced as their marketing strategy is to sell one bottle at full price or above and then get you to buy a second at 50% off. I will however pop in from time to time and check for discontinued fragrances. They often have grey market Chanel fragrances that they exclude from the 50% sale, the last time I was in the one here in Clinton Ct a few months ago I remembered seeing a few 50 ML bottles of Pour Monsieur EDT.

    I stopped in today and they had 3 left, at $72.00 each. I bought one as I didn't have a bottle of the EDT. There were still two remaining for those in the area that are interested.

    Talked to another Chanel rep this past weekend.

    She said she wasn’t sure what was going on it with it exactly, they haven’t been notified of anything. But that they usually get bottles of these & Antaeus around Father’s Day.
    She said if they don’t get any PM for Father’s Day and the website isn’t updated with it around then, there’s a good chance it could be discontinued in the American market (either temporarily or otherwise).

    She did also say it wasn’t a big seller and it’s possible they only make it in smaller batches at a time, and perhaps more will come later in the year/next year.

    Either way, she wasn’t sure and hadn’t been given any concrete info on it, or told to pull the testers.

    None. Concentree was renamed edp.
    Not sure if the name concentree is also an indicator of vintage formulation i.e. name changed happened with reformulation.
    In any case, all formulation and versions and flankers of this are good fragrances

    The EDT is good, but the EDP is more along the lines of my taste. It really melds into the barbershop realm IMO and pairs with Pinaud Clubman like no other pairing. I only layer two sets of fragrances and Pour Monsieur EDP+Clubman is one set and the other is Creed Viking+Creed Sublime Vanille. The EDT is more citrus and light. Both the EDT and EDP have an 'airy' quality to them, but the spicy EDP is where it's at IMO.

    The Father’s Day theory does not look promising, I still can not believe this is truly happening to the EDP. I haven’t worn it in about two months and miss it’s presence in my wardrobe, Chanel really owes an explanation for this decision.

    While it's definitely not the same, I suggest Lalique Pour Homme EdP (1997) as a good way to get your fix. If you don't mind a bit spicier, Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur (1972) is another good alternative.
