    Default Joop Nightflight is gone forever

    Unlike many fragrances by coty that are discontinued yet strangely still being made : zino , contradiction dark obsession etc
    Joop Nightflight is not being made anymore.
    It has disappeared from all department stores and prices are now 5 times what it used to cost on ebay.
    Bought my first bottle in 97 and was amazing.
    Guess sales had become nonexistent and last bottles made were made in 2016.

    I like Nightflight. I've got a 30ml and 75ml backup so I'll be alright.

    That's good coty version is good but original was better.

    Tried this one but didn't care much for it.

    Thank you for the info.

    Even happier now to own a bottle (luckily still quite full) but also not ruling out the possibility not just to find sources to purchase this fragrance alone, especially if beyond/off Ebay and/or their pricing, but also to share/post here on BN-should against all odds decent purchasing sources for Nightlight show up.

    Agree that the original was better back in the 90's when I had it but the more recent version still got a compliment from my wife.

    A classic, very tonic like, fresh and sweet at the same time. Could still be considered as modern but only for a stretch. To me it smells just a bit dated.

    The opening is a challenge.
    The drydown, when the jasmine and almond appear is beautiful.

    Was just having a laugh there at the prices for this now on eBay.
    I can remember buying a 125ml bottle of this from Semi-Chem for £18 three years ago.
    I always found it just okay. Not a great performer for me. Even thought about giving it away but I think I'll keep it for now.

    Gotta love the perfume investment/arbitrage scalpers. This is why I'm mum on discontinued fragrances until I've had my share, so I don't feed into their hype schemes.

    Sorry this is happening to you.

    No big loss for me.. never really cared for this one. Btw, this is was announced as discontinued a couple years ago already, along with the one in the green bottle, not sure if it's Go or Jump. I have tried this way back and found it to be a sort of muffled boring fruity fragrance with a generic dry down. Very run of the mil, and very overdone. Perhaps the pineapple note added a little character on top, but it lasts about as long as a gust of wind before becoming a boring generic fruity frag.

    It's OK. Got my recent release 4.2 oz bottle. I'll give it a sniff again sometime.

    Haven't tried it before but I probably won't be inspired by it.

    Also to note: just about everything Joop! except for the original and some recent releases (Wow! maybe?) is being torpedoed. Gone are cheap Jump, Go, Splash, Wild, etc.

    Jump is quite good.
    Heard it's been ruined by reformulations.

    For The.cologneist:
    Many fragrances have been called discontinued yet are still being made and sold at discount prices.
    Many calvin klein fragrances not found in department stores are still being made.
