If you mostly enjoy modern releases, you will probably find this one to be a bit dated. It's not really a powerhouse, but just a dirty musty floral fragrance that really doesn't stand out in a meaningful way. It's not unpleasant, but it's something I can only enjoy when I put a great amount of effort into appreciating it rather than something that is naturally just good. I hear it was reformulated, and maybe it was a beast back then, but now, it's on the mediocre side of average.
No, it's not that classic traditional scents are mediocre. It's that this one in particular is.
