  1. Re: Tom Ford Tobacco Oud - wearing a sample today - oh dear!

    Yes, it has been discontinued. From what I understand, all Tom Ford oud fragrances has been discontinued, with the notable exception of Oud Wood.

  5. Re: Plum Japonais by Tom Ford apparently discontinued.

    That might not be a bad thing. I sold one of my Tobacco Oud bottles last year, and I regret it now that it has been discontinued.
  6. Re: New L'Homme Ideal flanker from Guerlain - L'Homme Ideal Extreme

    It is a bit strange. I only had problems with bad performance with the first few sprays. But now that I've had the bottle for a little while, it has really opened up and projects really good.
