I think what matters is who makes it. What does the label on the bottom of the bottle say? The newer, EA ones seem softer/smoother.

Just wanted to say how nice it is to be back on Basenotes after taking a break for awhile. It's not that circumstances really warranted any absence on my part, but once in awhile I "fall out" and come back. I suspect that I'm not the only person who does this. I actually do this with a lot of my other hobbies, leaving them for awhile and picking back up from time to time. I have too many hobbies/interests to engage in all of them or any number of them at once. I sort of rotate them unless

I have to say I'm extremely disappointed with the new version of Samsara- it's not the same scent at all!
I fell completely in love a couple years ago with the partial bottle of the original EDT version, which I swapped with a kind fellow basenoter. I loved it! Everybody who smelled me loved it! Even strangers and folks I'd just met commented on it. I felt I had found my holy grail.
But then I ordered the new version, and it's only the faintest interpretation

My thought on these two:
Definitely two distinct scents. The former is warm, sweet, and soapy. The other is similar with an added sweetness which in my opinion resembles an orange creamsicle. I prefer the original as the supersweet orange creamsicle is too much for me and becomes syrupy. The other remains clean and mysterious and sexy. I do think that No. 5 Eau Premiere is a nicely made scent- I just prefer a little less corn syrup.
I also get a slight chemical smell that

My nose isn't picking much up on this today, and I applied a lot. However, my loved ones can smell me from yards away. So far this is soft, warm, and sweet. At the same time I'm getting sharpness or tartness from the florals. I could appreciate this on someone else, but I don't expect to fall in love with this myself. It seems too dainty and serious to me. Just in case my nose isn't working today, I will try it again sometime. But until then, I feel lukewarm about

Today I'm trying a sample of Champs Elysees and so far it smells great on me. Made in 1904 though I'm guessing it's reformulated, this is the oldest scent I've tried. I was struck right away with its crisp cheery edge. Not what I normally would think of as old fashioned.
(I think many older frags I've tried have gone bad and so really I should few expectations for "oldies." )
But this is good stuff! Clean, fun, polite, bright, sweet, sparkling,
