Gucci Envy Is Discontinued

It’s like an old friend! :mrgreen: The above pic is from my blog in 2009, where I tried to find some Gucci Envy for men, it is so old and even 3 years ago it was quite hard to find, but I did find some and was over the moon. But now, it’s apparently ‘officially’ been discontinued, so I may never get my beloved scent again πŸ™

I first got this at Christmas 2005, despite this fragrance being released in 1998, so wearing it throughout 2006 which was a great time for me. It was quite a crazy time, going out a lot in Newcastle meant I had to wear a scent, and most of the time I would choose this, my favourite. It’s not just the love of the smell, it’s the memories, the good times, Envy could tell so many stories! πŸ˜‰

If you did not know already I love EDTs, aftershaves and smells, this was the last pic I took of them in March 2011…

Yep, a lot! πŸ˜€ Still, my all time favourite has to be Gucci Envy which you can see in the pic above on the right at the front.

I do of course love others, such as Narciso Rodriguez, Gucci by Gucci, Bvlgari MAN, and now Allure Homme Sport Extreme by Chanel. But the vast majority of the above I still really like, so picking one to wear is usually very hard πŸ˜›


So yesterday I decided that I would try and track down a bottle of Gucci Envy. I only have about half a bottle left, and I rarely use it because I like it so much and know I don’t have much left. My search got me nowhere. Nobody seemed to stock it. After reading a few forums it seems like it has been discontinued, and after searching for hours, could not find a bottle, not for a decent price anyway.

There are some stores abroad which are selling it for over Β£100 for the 50ml bottle and over Β£200 for the 100ml, that is terrible! Such a high price, but I do love it.

I decided to email as many of the websites which used to stock it as I could, so I emailed about 20 of them, and the vast majority said they had no stock, and would almost certainly be getting no more stock πŸ™

I’ll continue my hunt to see if I can find some at a sensible price from a shop, the search goes on! πŸ˜‰ If you’re looking for an alternative to this, try checking out my men’s fragrance reviews, where I can recommend something which is similar but obviously not the sadly discontinued Gucci Envy For Men.

A great alternative is Floris Santal. It’s a premium scent which is very close to Gucci Envy for men, but is still a scent on it’s own. Going forward this will be what I use, and is one of my favourite fragrances.

  1. Ross Said,

    I always worry about having several EDT’s on the go at once in case they go off. Do you find they are ok – even on bottles that may have been open for a couple of years say?

  2. Michael Said,

    Well they supposedly last 2-4 years accourding to the bottles, but if you buy a “new” one you’ll not really know how new it is, it could of been lying around for a while in some wherehouse then again in a shop πŸ˜› I suppose that is the risk espeically when buying an older bottle.
    I have lots so I only rotate about 25, the rest I just keep and use when I want something different. They are kept in a draw, room temperature, away from sunlight.

    I read on a fragrance forum that people buy old ones and stock pile their favourites, so I guess they don’t seem to care if they go off.

    Gucci Envy – Try:

    I have ordered from here before with no problems. From the USA I think.

    Let me know how you get on.

  4. Michael Said,

    Thanks for letting me know Charlie. It seems they have a “notify me” button so it’s not in stock (like other stores). I would also not really want to order from USA, EU if possible πŸ™‚

  5. Ronron Said,

    Try Joop Go! It is fairly similar. I had the same prob, Gucci envy is just simply taken out of production, just like the fabulous Davidoff Relax many years ago….

  6. Michael Said,

    Hey, thanks, I may try. Floris Santal is very close to it, and D&G The One Gentleman is also similar.

  15. Michael Said,

    Hi Leila,

    It’s been discontinued for a number of years now, so even if you find a genuine bottle it’s going to be old, and also expensive (not to mention there’s many fakes out there). My advice would be to try Floris Santal, which I love and is very similar. You can read what I thought about it in my Floris Santal Review πŸ™‚

  16. Peter Said,

    Hi.I’m big fan Gucci envy for man. Why they done sutch stupid thing as discontinuation? It’s sad. Now to buy bottle 100ml – you looking for…. About 200Β£. And I think price will go higher and higher. I’m looking for replica – fake gucci envy. Some of the replicas are identical. For example ; Tom Ford tuscan leather: I found replica for 3 pounds pure oil and I’m telling you – it’s identical ( even last longer…)

  17. Rommel L. Danao Said,

    Greetings from the Philippines, Michael. I truly understand your concerns about the discontinuance of Gucci Envy for men. I’m so very lucky to obtain this marvel in a retail store last Dec 2014. Magnificent in every way.

  18. Michael Said,

    Hi Rommel,
    Thanks for your comments! Yes, lucky you! πŸ˜› I still have about 60% left in my bottle, I have given up all hope for this and found alternatives which are close to it πŸ™‚

    Hi Michael, l used to wear men’s aftershave rather than perfume. I have found a couple of bottles that l bought and only sprayed once. One is this envy a 50 ml bottle. I am going to sell these on selling site, are you interested. It is a genuine bottle but not boxed, smells lovely just not on me.

  22. RonRon Said,

    Hi Michael,

    Just wanted to ask you, which one do you feel is closer to Gucci envy for men; floris santal or D&G the one gentleman (keeping in mind that I do not at all like all those citrusy scents such as Davidoff cool water and the likes…)

    posted on Monday 8th August, 2016 at 22:13
  23. Michael Said,

    Hi RonRon,

    I think both are quite close…Owning all three and from what I read there’s nothing closer (although there could be, I haven’t tried every scent!). I prefer Floris Santal, I believe that D&G The One Gentleman is now discontinued, it can be found in a couple of places but the larger retailers stopped selling it in the UK a while back. If you can find a cheap (and real) bottle from an authorised retailer I’d recommend it. Floris Santal is around Β£75, but is worth it in my opinion.

  24. RonRon Said,

    Thanks Michael… A lot of US online retailers still have D&G at reasonable prices of around 38 the bottle, floris will be around 56 (both 100ml, so slightly pricy…

    posted on Monday 8th August, 2016 at 22:46
  25. Michael Said,

    If you can get Floris in USA for $56 that’s a good price, a 100ml bottle in the UK from Floris or authorised retailers is Β£75, which is almost US$100. You could always try a sample or try in-store if you can πŸ™‚

  27. Michael Said,

    Hi Garry, thanks for letting me know about Mon Blanc Legend, I’ve never tried it myself! I’ve had a look at the notes but it doesn’t sound much like Gucci Envy for men. Is it similar?
