Has Gucci Envy Been Discontinued and Are There Similar Smelling Perfumes?

One of the most sought after colognes at Fragrance Familia comes from the beloved House of Gucci: Gucci Envy. Unfortunately, we do have to let our curious Familia shoppers know that this gorgeous 1998 fragrance release has been discontinued as a perfume.

This baffles our Fragrance Familia team, given how popular this Gucci gem is!  At Fragrance Familia, we're revisiting the beloved Gucci Envy, a journey in a bottle, crafted in 1998 by the skilled Daniela (Roche) Andrier. It starts with a captivating mix of creamy ginger, cardamom, and zesty mandarin, setting a lively stage. The heart introduces a rich blend of cedar and jasmine, balanced with subtle floral notes for depth. As it settles, the scent transitions to a base of vanilla, musk, and a hint of tobacco and leather, leaving an unforgettable, sophisticated trail.

This discontinued classic combines spicy freshness with a clean finish, making it a sought-after scent for its lingering aroma.
