I think they have two "divisions" at this point, one for their "better" scents, but I'd advise to judge each scent by its own merits. That said, the ones I fear (especially in terms of reformulated classics) are 5 Star, Coty, Parlux, and EA Fragrances. It's not like only one company is "up to no good" across the board, in my opinion, but rather there seems to be a trend, where top notes are made stronger while cheaper base notes are used (though the base may even be stronger). And in many cases a muddled/"fuzzy" effect is achieved that I dislike intensely (generally-speaking of course). There are exceptions, such as Vermeil. I just wrote up a blog post about that reformulation, which features a nearly non-existent opening (relative to the original). However, some may actually prefer the new one because it isn't as "in your face" (the stickers say the exact same thing, unlike with these other reformulations). Anyway, in practical terms I wouldn't blind buy a reformulated bottle made by any of those companies (nor by Scannon).
