    Re: Eau Sauvage Parfum... REFORMULATED!

    I have a yellow-ish bottle, production year is 2012, the year it was released.

    This one has thermonuclear projection, smells dense and rich, I love it.

    Less is more with this one.

    Very...

    It's just the typical corporate bullshit that no one understands.

    Re: Kobe by Xerjoff

    Well, I'll be damned.

    My decant from the discovery set actually has floating particles.

    Strange.

    Thanks, I'm surprised you would congratulate me on something this cheap.

    Some samples seem to be a bit leaky.

    Shame.

    Vintage Xerjoff Fiero (= gold tassel) would be awesome.

    Re: Royal Mayfair thoughts

    Well, this is a great sales pitch.
    You even manage to insult me ever so slightly as if I'm only smelling the topnotes.

    I've worn this fragrance for at least 12 hours and like I said, all I'm...

    Re: Royal Mayfair thoughts

    This fragrance is a complete joke.

    Paid an arm and a leg for a spray sample, and this is it?

    A citrusy / mentholated fragrance counterbalanced by pine?
    From a distance, all I'm smelling is a...

    Re: Xerjoff Fiero reformulated?

    Well, I guess I solved my own question.

    The 30ml bottles are sold since.... 2016.

    So it has the reformulated juice.

    These houses should be fined for reformulations like this.
