A few close-but-not-quites, at least not today: Caron Le Troisiemme Homme (1985, I can't find the perfumer), Bulgari Black (Annick Menardo, 1998), Diptyque Philosykos (Olivia Giacobetti, 1996) (these three I ultimately prefer attached to John), Sonya Rykiel Belle en Rykiel (Jean-Pierre Bethouart, 2006), Teo Cabanel Alahine (Jean-François Latty, 2007), Voile de Violette (Laurie Erickson, 2007), Ormonde Jayne Woman (Linda Pilkington, 2002), Une Rose Chypree (Andy Tauer, 2009), Agent Provocateur (Christian Provenzano, 2000) (on another day this might replace L'Ombre dans l'Eau; Anniebelle's Rose might replace them both if I could get Liz Zorn to give me a bottle), Gucci Rush (Michel Almairac, 1999), and so on and so on.
As you can see, my tastes run contemporary (clearly 2007 was my year -- six of the perfumes I've named here were released in 2007, almost half between 2006 and 2008), but that's because this is what's available now. We can keep watching classic movies in the same form over the years, but this isn't true of perfume. If a perfume doesn't sell or doesn't fit the new marketing image or what have you, they stop making it. If only perfumes could be downloaded and copied with the ease of music files.
