    Default Recently discontinued or rumored to be?

    So far this year I have heard JPG Ultra male, One Million Prive and Tom Ford Noir. True? Also what are some others that you know of or have heard about? I'm tryna buy some ones that I like before prices go sky high. I got Prive already and I am very happy with it, my son has Ultra and I love the way it smells so I might get my one bottle soon. Thanks in advance

    The crappiest low is when you get recommended a fragrance and then you find out it discontinued and rare and super expensive!

    Supposedly/allegedly: Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme, Costume National Homme (although they did issue a flanker recently), Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EdT (the EdP is probably still in production), Carolina Herrera Chic for Men, Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme and Pour Homme Soir

    Quite likely/possibly or definitely: YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme, almost every A*Men flanker except Pure Malt, Pure Havane and Ultimate

    Noir Anthracite is the most tragic recent discontinuation IMO. Anyone have any definitive word on Gucci Guilty Absolute? I know it’s been plagued by rumors since its release but I can’t remember if anyone tracked that down for sure. Either way glad I just bought a backup.

    I just got another backup from Nordstrom Rack's website two weeks ago. They sold em out in a few days, though I'm not sure how many they had in stock.

    Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme, is one I am glad I invested many back up bottles of in the designer realm it could be a century before anything daring like that is released again.

    Up to this day I'm sad I don't have more backups of Gucci Envy For Men, Mugler B*Men and Givenchy Very Irresistible For Men. Everything is speeding up, new lines, new flankers etc., thus discontinuations as well.

    Sounds like it’s time to finally pick up a bottle of Kyoto. Surprised that one would get that boot since it seems to be pretty popular, although that’s just basing on forum talk rather than sales.

    All this GGA talk makes me think I need to get another backup bottle now haha

    Glad I got a bottle of GGA, but I think I need one more bottle. Also for those you might not know, Aramis tobacco reserve. I definitely got a back of bottle of that sweet juice!!

    The Aramis ones are confusing, they are cheap and should be readily available the designer realm keeps releasing these masculines and then discontinuing them what’s the point?

    It’s like a tease... anyone wanna smell manly, ok hurry buy it while it’s fresh soon to be discontinued SMH!

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Discontinuation rumours + FOMO + next day delivery = a bad day for any unsuspecting green enthusiast and their pocket

    More important than what’s being said is who is saying it.

    Overall I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad idea for a thread because it reminds and gives people that are genuinely running low and would need a refill anyway a chance to get a replacement bottle before prices skyrocket. It does though also lead to overinflated prices due to scalpers.
    If you are looking to buy a bottle for your own use or a gift you’re probably still safe paying a tad over, but if you’re looking to flip a bunch of bottles off the discontinuation rumours you’re just as likely to be the one overpaying as all scalpers run for the ‘deal pile’.

    Unfortunately scaremongering and hype seem to have become part and parcel of a segment of this thing but,

    If you startle enough horses you’ll eventually get a kick from one.

    Explorer is not true absolutely.
    According to Inter Parfums, it is a best seller for the brand now, and they are creating its flanker for fall 2021.

    That last line gets a huge round of applause from me. Just pretend I cloned myself like 50 times so it sounds like a studio audience clapping.

    I had no idea about Noir Anthracite, pleased to have a 50mL bottle of it. Gucci guilty absolute is still in stock at grey market retailers and sephora in the US. If it's been discontinued there may still be some time. Just to be safe I ordered a decant so I can at the very least get my nose on it. I've heard its one of the darkest and most masculine releases of the last decade

    Interesting.. thanks for the intel. I own and like CH chic for men and was surprised to see it on the list.

    As to Guilty Absolute, I bought into the hype and blind bought a 50 ml bottle in Nordstrom. Just for the collection purposes)) won’t be buying any back up bottles for myself though. Maybe just for reselling ��

    The consensus is that GGA is bold like M7 was, and for that reason, it’s not a crowdpleaser (not crowdpleaser=low seller=good candidate for discontinuation)
    It has disappeared at Sephora as well as from the Gucci websites (both US and US). Gllad I have a 90ml, as well as a 150ml backup.
