    For this fragrance - never, but if it were one I really wanted in my collection and had been searching years for and it was BNIB and sealed - yes. I'd even pay more.

    It's not worth that much. I can list a bottle of Envy for $10,000, and say now that's the price it's worth at, but since the last one that sold on ebay was a Best Offer of less than $250 it's not "worth" even probably 1/5 of what it's listed for.

    Asking price and selling price are often very different.

    I wouldn’t pay more than $150 for it. It’s a solid fragrance, but it’s 2nd tier compared to others I do or have owned/sampled.

    It costs the seller nothing to ask this... Right up until someone in an adjacent listing sells a similar bottle for 85% less...
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    I don't know exactly how it works, but something to do with the algorithm that if you have a popular listing instead of actually selling the items you put a crazy price, it never sells, but somehow that also makes your other listings premium when people search.

    I wouldn’t pay not even the original price or the price of it in grey market when it was still in production. Never was a fan of it or of Rush. Most Gucci male fragrances are not good to me.
    I sometimes get amazed on the success Gucci has in the US.

    A discontinued Gucci. Not surprising at all.

    I really liked Rush for Men and wore it a lot back in the days.

    But I wouldn't buy it nowadays, who knows how it was stored all the years...

    I love that fragrance, but it's not worth that price Who knows, maybe they reissue it one day as a limited edition. I know, hopes and dreams.

    I can think of many fragrances I’d buy for the total amount of the one Envy bottle. Even a favorite of mine, if I didn’t have any reserve of would be time to let go imo not worth a ridiculous markup because a seller said you will pay this. Eventually you will come across a reasonably priced bottle or you won’t, the good thing is this hobby has so many excellent fragrances to be had.

    Surely it has a certain status due to its discontinuation, but with a lot of these types of fragrances the feeling of it being discontinued weighs a lot more than the smell itself. If this one was still in production, nobody would bat an eye, except maybe some BN'ers on here.

    It is an amazing fragrance and i had a great time wearing it back in the day. It is sad that it got discontinued but for me Floris Santal comes close enough.

    At this point, it would probably be cheaper and still profitable for both fragrance customers and perhaps even for Gucci to simply re-release Envy in some designer exclusive/niche line Gucci limited edition more expensive than regular Gucci scents yet still priced below 1.150 plus shipping per bottle.

    That's a crazy price. I've seen similar listings on ebay (not quite this bad, usually) for what are also absurd prices, and they are literally still sitting there years later. haha =)

    It’s probably someone selling a bottle for $400 from a different account, trying to make that look like a good deal. No reason to take it seriously.

    Value and worth rely on people actually buying it at that price. No one's buying it for $1000, the dystopian hellhole hasn't quite got to that point.

    Envy is good but Floris' Eau de Santal makes it redundant to pay silly money for it.
