It's still sold in many places, so just stock up? Checking Fragrantica, this cheapy is similar: Halston Z14. But you're probably not after a synthetic mess if you're a TF guy.

Where do you see it? Can only see it for €200 for a 50ml (lol) and on eBay that could be moody so would rather avoid

Well yes, finding it for less than retail is gonna be harder now. You can get a 250ml for €495 though. Or mail info@fragrancesamplesuk.com and see if he wants to do you a 100ml split for reasonable price.

Tom Ford for Men is amazing. I've worn it since the day it released, it just doesn't last very long. Not a fan of the grey vetiver

End of the day it's a Comme perfume for the same price as a David beckham one

Thank you for this, just bought 4 bottles.
Love the scent and wear it for work and for that price it's worth stocking up

Try Armaf Tres Nuit or Raghba For Men, I have both and although Ragba for men is the cheaper of the two I much prefer it to Tres Nuit, has a more creamy vibe to it, sillage is stronger and feels better quality to Tres Nuit.

its not even remotely similar

i dont think its any of the ones mentioned above. it was a website and they were essentially dedicated to making 'inspired by' fragrances

Hm, checked a bit online and seems like they raped CW in 2014 Cry Last time I checked I was maybe 20, not a fan of aquatics.

You got these two sites:

https://www.dua-fragrances.com/

https://alexandriafragrances.com/

Other than that not sure which other company you're thinking off.
