    MDCI is one of the very best niche perfume houses.

    Overrated and overpriced? 95 of 100 niche brands are way too overrated and overpriced. MDCI does not count.

    I doubt Tom Ford himself spends/wastes too much time for finding vintage version.

    He has no time for such occasions. I think that he uses what is currently on the market.
