I have a vintage bottle of 'A Gentleman's Cologne' which was the UK name for Pour Monsieur prior to 1989.
A few days ago, Pour Monsieur was my SotD and I took the opportunity to test them side-by-side.
I think the sillage and longevity of the current version is excellent, but it pales in comparison with the vintage. They smell very similar, so - yes, imo - there still is a lot of oakmoss in the current formulation.
I am not knowledgeable enough to explain the difference in sillage and longevity but it is substantial and very noticeable.
