Just picked this up at the Saks here in Jersey. Actually, I got the last bottle as they are sold out of it temporarily now. Anyway ...
The best I can say about this it's very, very similar to what they did with DK Fuel and Unleaded. ( No, JV smells NOTHING like DK ). The new Vintage Varvatos ... as with Unleaded ... is a hint of the original frag, with a lot missing. To me, the best parts. The Original Varvatos has much more depth and character. The Vintage feels like a "watered down" version of the original. Also, along the lines of the DK product, the Vintage has very little sillage and short longevity. I sprayed it on at the store (generously) and half an hour later when I got home, it was barely there. I figured maybe it was the tester, so to make sure, I doused my hand and arm with it. About half hour later, it's still there ... but barely.
This will probably work fine as an office scent if you don't want to offend anyone. (the original is probably a bit too heavy for the office). Maybe as a warm weather scent too ... where your body heat can kinda project it a bit more. Also, I thought I read where this scent is targeted at the "older" gentleman. I say ... bullcrap. This can be worn by anyone. In fact, it reminds me slightly of Armani Code ... an "anyone" frag.
Anyway, if you're a fan of the Original JV, I think you're gonna be disappointed in this one. That's not to say you shouldn't try it ... as this is only one person's opinion.
