    Re: Your vintage SOTD 2019

    Thanks, Stoller. I'm with you on that. Problem could be, being a big finance co., that it could go either way. I'd LOVE to see them stick it to IFRA or something, clean up the isles and go all in on...

    Need help with my Kouros bottle!

    It is NOT a fake. You have a Sanofi-Kouros from 1999. The bottle is a leftover old stock from Parfum Corp. era.
    Batchnumbers are re-used every 10 yrs, therefore: 2019 -> 2009 -> 1999.

    Vintage Fragrances I bought today

    It's a really nice woody citrus aromatic. Downplayed and gentlemanly. I like to think that Pellegrino drew inspiration from Monsieur de Givenchy when he composed Armani Eau Pour Homme.

    Re: classic aramis watered down when

    I find the newer re-formed version very good as well (the same with Tuscany).
    Many forget that skin-type/chemistry also plays a significant part in terms of longevity.
    But yes, new Aramis is good...
