Floris London fragrance auction for Susan G. Komen cancer foundation

On Thursday, September 27, Floris London will be auctioning on eBay the last sixty bottles available in the world of their classic men’s fragrance, No. 89, to benefit the Susan G. Komen breast cancer foundation.

"Sought by men the world over, requests for the elusive No. 89 have been great, and this sophisticated and provocative scent has been worn by many celebrities, including James Bond in the 007 novels and star Daniel Craig in Casino Royale."

The auction will begin on eBay Thursday, September 27. All bids start with a price of $85 per bottle.

Edited to add: we received clarification from Floris, the bottles that will be auctioned are the last 60 bottles of No. 89 left in the US, where it won’t be available again until at least next Spring.

This is my scent of the day and its a superb classy scent! Why would they discontinue this?

faizan--perhaps so they can raise money now, and then bring it back with great fanfare once all its fans have suffered a bit?

Cynical, I know, but...

It's a worthy cause, but I selfishly wish they would continue the scent, tack on $10 and give that money to the foundation...

This fragrance contains moss, so it presumably has to be reformulated to comply with the same EU regulations that are responsible for the mutilation of the great Guerlain classics.
