    Yeah....I do casually watch for Cologne Concentree on Ebay, and I've seen it once or twice. I might bid on it some day but I've been too broke so far. I'd love to try Bois Noir as well!

    Sorry your Egoiste didn't work out. It is such a great scent, and I'm certainly also happy enough with the current version. Glad you are enjoying the newer version as well.
    Yeah....I think we can drive ourselves crazy with the endless search for the vintage holy grail.....but life's a little easier when I narrow it down to what's available now. Still, it's always possible to have a lucky accident and find a vintage scent in great shape!

    Thanks for replying.
