A search for a discontinued item! Please help!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to find a men's cologne that was popular in the 1980's and I can not find it ANYWHERE.

I was wondering, since I've exhausted all ideas of where to look, if perhaps any of you know where I may find it.

Outside the U.S. members may be able to help me better, I don't know!

The cologne is called:

Mon Triomphe

Please...please help!

Cheryl,

I didn't do a search on this, but wondered if you tried to find it on fragrance.net

Yes I have tried E-Bay. Not to familiar on how to buy or search on that site, but, from what I did look, I couldn't find anything. Thanks anyway.

Yes I did! I even asked their "fragrance GURU" and he/she couldn't find anything either.

Good suggestion, thanks, but I've tried that.

No, sorry. My boyfriend at the time wore it everyday. I still keep in touch with him. We got to talking about it and I thought it'd be a nice surprise gift for him.

I don't want to ask him that question, although he'd probably have the answer, cause I want it to be a surprise.

I can't believe you corrected him on that one - usually a woman would be happy to lose 20 years just like that Have you tried looking in your little local pharmacies? I know over here they sometimes stock the more obscure/discontinued lines

First I corrected that statement cause they believed in the 80's I was an infant, so I set them straight by letting them know I was in my 20's then.

You make a good point, I shoulda let everyone think I was (or am) 20 yrs. younger.

I have looked when I've gone in many stores but don't see it anywhere. I've tried flea markets too. Thanks for the idea.

Cheryl, I did a search for it here (covering Europe), with no success, though I got a lot of tourist info about France!

I know it's been discontinued but I'm trying to find it anyway. Maybe in a place that still has vintage colognes.

Or like the cologne "Old Spice" my Dad has unopened bottles of it that I could sell on Ebay. So I'm kinda hoping that someone may have a bottle of this cologne or knows of a vintage antinque or something store that may have it.

BTW: I looked in your profile and I highly respect you and your retired occupation. God bless you and the work you've done for so many.

You have to sign up for an account. And then bid on the item. And then, unfortunately, wait until the auction is over. In this case.. over 6 days.

You can either watch the auction (to make sure noone bids higher than you) or put in your highest bid amount (the most you're willing to pay) -- if you do that then ebay bids for you if someone else bids higher than you. Got it?

Then once it's over you can either sign up for Paypal and pay online or go and get a money order and mail it to the seller.

ebay has a good FAQ/Troubleshooting. Here's on how to get started.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anymore help.
