  4. Re: Have you ever disliked a fragrance and then realised it's the one you're already wearing?

    Your code indicates vintage, or pre reformulation.

    December 2010 to be precise about the code, this is the production timestamp.

    I'm sure they will be great. I think this relaunch purpose is not to make a quick buck but to revive those fantastic perfumes created by JM Duriez!

    To me, Un Bois Vanille is among the very few Lutens that a man would find hard to wear, along with Louve. I just can't wear it, and find it very disturbing on a man.
