One of the most pleasant experiences in perfumery world. Vintage is superior, but the reformulated is nonetheless really good.
Pros: Unique, one-of-a-kind.
Review for the old version (discontinued in 1995)
I could say a lot of things about this "Eau the Vetyver" made in very small quantities only for pleasing Hubert de Givenchy.... but words are unnecessary.
This is the best vetyver ever created. Period.
Pros: The best one. Period.
close your eyes, it's Fahrenheit in the Eighties.
Olympios was a flop, due to its similitudine to Dior's classic, but it had to be re-discovered now.
Almost difficult to describe. The rose-santal accord developed by this scent reaches the high mountains of the olfactive pleasure. A must-try for every serious perfume lovers..
Pros: Memorable Rose-Santal accord
Cons: Hard to find"
I'll not add too many explanations, other reviewers did it in a excellent way.
I only add that this is -maybe- one of the BEST SUMMER SCENT ever produced since it can resist to high temperatures and burning sun.
Scent nr. 1 to be used when summer it's really hot.
.....and I'm very pleased to say that I tried the original from1987 and modern one side-by-side, and although there are some notable differences, the "core" of this perfume is still intact.
The modern version has a gentle, slight talc and iris-like background. Someone could appreciate it. The vintage version is more "rude".
Longevity is decent under the sun, while enormous when in office or at home.
Please note this is a Summer scent, make no sense wear it during the winter.
Ayway, two thumbs up both vintage and modern.
(final word: it's sold at ridiculous price in stores -15 euros for 100ml-, it deserves a lot.)
Pros: One of the best scent for summer. Reformulated version is OK
Extraordinary fragrance from the end of Seventies/ beginning of Eighties.
Very, very long longevity and strong sillage.,
The EDT is equivalent to a modern Eau de Parfum. And it's good, very good.
You can literally "smell the quality"-.
two thumbs up.
BTW the bottle is NOT the one in picture, but this:
Pros: You can "smell the quality"
Wonder if many of these reviews are mistakes, since descriptions (amber, vanilla) are more appropriate the Bugatti pour Homme ( same name) year 1992, aka "the original", a totally different and much, much better scent.
I mean this: Ettore Bugatti the original, year 1992
