Yes, I'm getting that feeling too. Of course it won't appear on many items produced for a non EU-market but I couldn't figure out if this directive was binding for items manufacurered for the EU-market.
But that wouldn't help in the case of Lauder for Men anyway, it seems.
The original version is quite nice. The reformulation - honestly, don't waste your time and money. I purchased a dusty old bottle in an obscure shop, hoping that it would be vintage, but it turned out to be the reformulation, a major disappointment. What a shame. Another good fragrance ruined.
